On Biden and Reade, The New York Times Renders Itself Beyond Parody

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

It would be humorous if it weren’t so tiresomely predictable at this point. – This might be hard for you to believe, but there are still millions of Americans out there who believe the New York Times is a “news” organization. That hasn’t been the case since at the least the 1930s, when the Times served as an apologist platform for Adolph Hitler, just as it today serves as little more than an apologist platform for the national Democrat Party.

One of my favorite comedies is “So I Married an Axe Murderer,” starring Mike Meyers in multiple roles. He plays the lead character, and also the lead character’s father. The father is a crusty old first generation immigrant from Scotland who walks around in his underwear passing wind and hurling insults, and who believes that Colonel Sanders is the head of a worldwide conspiracy.

One of that film’s funniest scenes involves not the father, but the also-Scottish, long-suffering mother, who at one point asks her son “Charlie, hand me the paper,” pointing to a copy of the old supermarket tabloid The Weekly World News.

“Mom,” Charlie replies, “I find it interesting that you call The Weekly World News ‘the paper.’ A paper contains facts.”

Well, if the New York Times is in any guide, not anymore.

Over the weekend, the Democrat activists who make up the Times’ editorial board published one of the most outrageous op/ed pieces in U.S. newspaper history, one that crusty old long-time reporter and anchor Brit Hume referred to on Twitter Sunday as being “Beyond parody.” It truly is an amazing case of a stunning lack of self-awareness, highly-predictable hypocrisy and just plain old bad faith to the public interest that the free press is supposed to dutifully protect.

The piece begins with a summary of Tara Reade’s accusations of sexual harassment, sexual assault and what the hypocritical #MeToo movement would characterize as “rape” if Biden were anyone other than the presumptive presidential nominee of its favorite political party. But then the editorial board lurches into this paragraph:

In 2018, this board advocated strongly for a vigorous inquiry into accusations of sexual misconduct raised against Brett Kavanaugh when he was nominated to a seat on the Supreme Court.

Why yes, yes it did. It actually advocated for an investigation not by congress or some disinterested 3rd party, but by the FBI, which, thanks to the media uproar at the time, ended up taking place and finding nothing. And remember, the wild accusations hurled by the obvious liar Christine Blasey Ford had none of the true contemporaneous supporting attestations and evidence that support Ms. Reade’s claims.

In its very next three sentences, the Times then says the following:

Mr. Biden’s pursuit of the presidency requires no less. His campaign, and his party, have a duty to assure the public that the accusations are being taken seriously. The Democratic National Committee should move to investigate the matter swiftly and thoroughly, with the full cooperation of the Biden campaign.

You read that right: Where the Times called for a freaking FBI investigation into a guy who wanted to become one of nine Supreme Court justices, it wants the guy seeking to become the one and only holder of the highest and most powerful office in the land to be investigated by his own political party. If this were 1955, this same editorial board would no doubt advocate that famous mob boss Frank Costello be investigated by a committee of the Five Families.

It’s maybe the most absurd thing ever printed in a U.S. newspaper, but it only gets worse from there. Here’s the very next paragraph, in which the Times literally lays out the DNC talking points on Ms. Reade:

Ms. Reade’s account has some apparent inconsistencies. Last year, she was one of several women who came forward with complaints of Mr. Biden hugging or touching them in ways that made them uncomfortable, but she did not raise the assault accusation until this March. She says she tried to share her story with the media earlier, only to get “shut down.”

First, the #MeToo people have told us thousands of times over the past two years that it is entirely common for a woman who has been sexually assaulted to be reluctant to come forward with her full accusations, largely due to paragraphs just like this one printed in the newspapers. This paragraph is a literal outrage in the context of women who have suffered sexual abuse.

And that last sentence, which attempts to lead readers to believe Ms. Reade is not being honest about being shut down by the media earler? On Sunday, the Associated Press admitted to having an interview with Ms. Reade months ago on this subject, only to decide to kill the story.

Think this editorial cannot possibly get any worse? Boy are you in for a disappointment. Several more paragraphs down, we get this little gem:

While understandable, this concern is not prohibitive — and Mr. Biden’s word is insufficient to dispel the cloud. Any inventory should be strictly limited to information about Ms. Reade and conducted by an unbiased, apolitical panel, put together by the D.N.C. and chosen to foster as much trust in its findings as possible. Admittedly, this would be a major undertaking. Mr. Biden served 36 years in the Senate. He turned over nearly 2,000 boxes and more than 400 gigabytes of data to the University of Delaware; most of it has not been cataloged. But the question at hand is no less than Mr. Biden’s fitness for the presidency. No relevant memo should be left unexamined.

You read that right: As its’ justification for failing to call for an FBI investigation as it did in the Kavanaugh case, the Times asks its readers to believe that the DNC – by definition a political entity, and in practice one of the most despicably and aggressively hyper-political entities on the face of the earth – is capable of conducting an “apolitical” investigation of its own nominee.

The suggestion is absurd on its face: Who exactly would the Times suggest placing on such an “apolitical panel”? In this society in which literally everything and everyone has been politicized, it is frankly impossible that such a panel could be assembled by anyone, no matter how well-meaning, and DNC Chairman Tom Perez is certainly not well-meaning.

As for the University of Delaware records, they’ve already been scrubbed, and the Times editorial board knows it. The Biden campaign admits that several of its operatives spent days scouring those records weeks ago. Whatever documents relevant to Ms. Reade’s allegations that may have once been there are now safely long-gone and likely burned.

The Times, again as predictable as the sun rising in the West (at least, according to the Times), closes its cynical appeal to the DNC to be “apolitical” with this hyper-partisan final paragraph:

Mr. Biden has set higher standards for himself. That has been central to his appeal. His campaign is founded on the promise of restoring sanity, civility and decency to the presidency. Even if certainty isn’t possible in this matter, the American people deserve at least the confidence that he, and the Democratic Party, have made every effort to bring the truth to light.

You knew there was no way this collection of Democrat activists could get through 500 words without at least one attempt to smear President Trump, right? Of course you did.

The notion that Joe Biden has set “higher standards for himself” is laugh-out-loud ridiculous. This is a guy who, on the campaign trail, has continued his habit of fondling children and women, holding them too close, sniffing them and rubbing them with his spindly fingers. He apparently cannot help himself. He is a guy who has on multiple occasions this year challenged attendees at his own rallies to go outside for a fight. This is civility? This is decency?

And as for “sanity,” well, let’s be honest and recognize that Biden is also a guy who has repeatedly and clearly demonstrated that he often has no idea where he is, often is incapable of reading from a teleprompter, needs to have his despicable wife sitting next to him to keep him on message and has only a sporadic acquaintance with reality.

Joe Biden is not capable of handling the office of the presidency, and the Times editorial board knows this. But they just keep lying to their readers on behalf of the Democrat Party nevertheless.

Beyond parody, indeed. Beyond decency, in fact.

That is all.

Pelosi Dodders Back Onto The Nation’s Main Stage

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hey, remember when the Democrats pretended they might not try to impeach President Donald Trump while the were campaigning last year? – Yeah, that mask has come off completely now.  Michigan’s (not Minnesota’s, as I orginally said – my apologies to all Minnesotans) new Muslim rookie congressperson, someone named Rashida Tlaib, told a gathering of leftist radicals last night that “We’re gonna go in and impeach the motherf*cker.” At least she did if you believe the multiple fake reporters who covered the event, which we all know is a bit of a crap shoot.

Tlaib apparently wasn’t aware the leering press was in that particular room, but hey, it’s always good to know exactly what leftist radical morons are thinking, to the extent they actually engage in thought processes at all.  She had left the profanities out of an op/ed published yesterday by the Detroit Free Press, probably because someone on her staff wrote it for her.

In that piece she is credited with saying that “We already have overwhelming evidence that the president has committed impeachable offenses,” she wrote, accusing Trump of “abuse of power and abuse of the public trust“. The fact that none of that is actually true is of no concern to someone who clings to a philosophy that dictates that “truth” not only does not matter, it doesn’t even exist.

As if to emphasize Tlaib’s point, earlier in the day, Democrat Brad Sherman of California re-introduced an articles of impeachment bill that he first brought last summer, on the stupendously specious grounds that President Trump committed “obstruction of justice” by exercising his clear constitutional authority to fire Teenage Drama Queen James Comey.

“I think I skipped a couple of pages.  I’m not sure.”those are the exact words your new Speaker of the House, San Fran Nan, muttered into a live mike as she doddered away from the podium after her acceptance speech yesterday. Say what you want about how worthless and ineffective Paul Ryan was – and he undoubtedly was both – he at least had the presence of mind to know what page of the speech he was on.  Most of the time.

But look, Nan is just one of the residents in the nursing home crew we refer to as the Democrat House Leadership.  Respectively, Pelosi, Majority Leader Stenny Hoyer and Whip James Clyburn are 79, 78, and 79 years of age. They have all spent several decades knocking down the modest congressional salaries, and have all somehow managed to accumulate fabulous wealth during that time.  Funny how that works.

They are the doddering, muttering poster children for term limits.  Below are some shots of Pelosi in action outside the White House on Wednesday. I can’t tell if she’s having problems with a bridge or if she keeps a pet gerbil in her mouth.  You decide.

Yeah, that’s not gonna work. – As if to demonstrate exactly how un-serious she and her party’s House majority truly are, Pelosi led a party line vote on two separate spending bills designed to “re-open” the currently un-funded departments of the federal government. Neither bill contained a dime for border security. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell immediately announced he would not waste the Senate’s time bringing either bill to the floor for a vote.

Meanwhile, President Trump responded to Pelosi by making the following post on his Instagram page:

It’s on like Donkey Kong.

Your Homeland Security Department in Action! – Hey, remember when TSA Pre-check first came out and you applied for it and waited 6 weeks for the results, and then you got a letter in the mail saying you had qualified for it, but then, just a few months later the TSA made it all random so sometimes you got Pre-Check and most of the time you didn’t, and now they’ve taken it away completely and want you to pay $85 for qualifying for it again? Yeah, this is truly disgraceful. A pox on all their houses.

Brit Hume tweets out Today’s Required Reading:

Seriously, give it a read and learn what an utter disgrace to the journalistic “profession” – such as it exists these days – the McClatchy News Service has become. Warning: You’ll need some Zantac handy for when you’re done.

They keep using that word.  I don’t think they know what it means.:

Democrats on Thursday:  Trump is attacking our nation’s institutions!!!!!!!!

Also Democrats on Thursday:  Here’s a bill that would eliminate that Electoral College thing!!!!!!

You seriously cannot make this stuff up.

That is all.

Bob Mueller: Nude Selfie Inspector Extraordinaire

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The Mueller “Investigation” reaches rock bottom. – Yesterday, it came to light that the upright, stalwart man with the “unimpeachable” reputation, Special Counsel Robert Mueller, has now resorted to the collection of “nude selfies” in his Captain Ahab-like quest to indict as many Russian ham sandwiches as he possibly can.

Of course, in the case of Concorde Management, it turns out that our abusive counsel wants to indict the ham sandwich, but he doesn’t want to actually prosecute the ham sandwich.  Mainly because he and his evil band of Clinton/Obama hacks know they are holding a big bag of nothing in their case against this consulting firm.

In their feverish efforts to avoid an embarrassing day in court, Mueller and his minions have been trying to convince the judge in the case that the normal rules of production and disclosure do not apply.  Their claim is that they should be able to conduct their prosecution of the case without sharing evidence with the defense due to … wait for it…NATIONAL SECURITY REASONS.  Mueller argues that revealing his evidence could also reveal his “sources and means,” the standard excuse used by the FBI and DOJ in redacting documents in order to avoid embarrassing themselves.  Oh yeah, you betcha.  You just cannot make this stuff up.

Remember, Concorde is the company that is accused of basically setting up a handful of fake social media accounts and spending about $100,000 in messaging during the 2016 election. Can it really get any more absurd than this?

As it turns out, yes, it can. In a filing to the court made public on Thursday, Concorde’s lawyers argue against Mueller’s absurd demand, in the process including the following statement:

“Could the manner in which he collected a nude selfie really threaten the national security of the United States?”

Yes, friends and foes, your Special Counsel is deploying the old “sources and means” argument to avoid revealing how he and his band of thugs came to be in possession of a nude selfie.  I’m really not sure what else needs to be said about that.  Other than, holy crap.

Paris Burning Update: Speaking of things you just could not make up if you wanted to, the news out of Gay Pareee this morning is that the Macron government is now being sued by radical fake green groups GreenPeace and Oxfam for…wait for it…oh, you gotta wait for this one…AGREEING TO RESCIND MACRON’S CARBON TAX!  I swear I do not make this stuff up:

“Four NGOs—Oxfam, Greenpeace, Notre Affaire à Tous, and Fondation pour la Nature et l’Homme—have initiated legal proceedings saying France has defaulted on its environmental obligations. The initial Dec.18 filing gives the government two months to formulate a response, after which the organizations can choose to move forward with their lawsuit (link in French) in administrative court.”

This is climate-scamism at its finest:  Bind your country to some international “accord” (not a treaty) that would do literally nothing at all about the “climate”, but would redistribute trillions of dollars from Western nations to the rest of the world, and you suddenly find that, no matter what action you try to take related to it, you’re angering large segments of your society. Try to implement the socialist policies that the globalist community demands, and half your population riots in the streets.  Try to rescind those policies, and the fake green groups (which are really just socialist fronts) have millions of dollars or francs they will use to sue your butt off.

There is no graceful exit available for Macron in this situation. He must take a side, and you can be sure that he will ultimately side with the fake greens and globalists, because that is who he is.  And honestly, this is the fate he richly deserves.

Some Twitter Funnies to close out Today’s Campaign Update:

Brit Hume was cranky yesterday:

No offense, ladies, but you know it’s true:

Jeb! is still hanging around, Tweeting stupid stuff like this…

Freshman Texas Cong. Dan Crenshaw is going to be a star:

 

 

We’ll close it out with this one from the incomparable James Woods:

Why we Must #NeverTrust #NeverTrumpers Again

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

 

For all you snowflakes, SJWs and just plain goofy leftists out there…:  The fakenewsers at The Huffington Post courteously published a piece on Saturday conveying 12 things all you pathetic losers out there can do to sooth yourselves in the wake of the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation.  Those helpful tips include “Practice Deep Breathing,” “Take a Break From Social Media (a wonderful bit of advice that none of these people will take)”, and the capper, “Limit Alcohol Consumption,” which seems like a really great idea for these people to stick with in any event.

No word if the HuffPo was also offering safe spaces for its demented readers at its headquarters, but it seems likely.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  Who could?

Found on my Twitter feed this morning:

And this little gem from last night:

Brit Hume had a great smackdown for deranged Kathy Griffin here:

Hilarious.

 

All the #NeverTrump nitwits say “No, because muh principles, or something!”:

This guy asks a great question on Twitter, but he won’t like the answer he gets back…

All the readers of The Campaign Update are smart and attractive people, so you all are no doubt horrified at the thought of what would have happened to the Supreme Court had the 2016 election turned out differently.  The Scalia vacancy would have been immediately filled by Merrick Garland – or someone worse – upon the coronation of the Pantsuit Princess, and the Kennedy vacancy would have been filled by some nitwit from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals or the ACLU, in all likelihood.

That outcome would have literally ended our constitutional democracy for all intents and purposes.  The First, Second, Fourth, Fifth and Tenth amendments would have come under withering assault in the courts, and would have been rendered meaningless within a few years.  The Interstate Commerce Clause would have evaporated, and private property rights would have followed shortly.

People with common sense should never let themselves forget the heinous actions of the mindless #NeverTrump, fake conservatives among us.  We should always remember that people like Bill Kristol and George Will and S.E. Cupp and Stephen Hayes and Jennifer Rubin and Ross Douthat and Jonah Goldberg and Brett Stephens and the entire staffs at the Weekly Standard and the National Review (with a couple of notable exceptions) literally advocated that our nation would be better off with the Fainting Felon as our president.  These people all advised their readers to vote for a career criminal, the person who told us in no uncertain terms that her presidency would simply be a continuation of the Obama presidency, to become our 45th President instead of Donald Trump.

Never forget #NeverTrump, because these people, who have held themselves out to be “conservatives” to their duped audiences for many years, literally advocated for the condemnation of our children and their children to live in a United States of America that would irreversibly become a European-style quasi-socialist quasi-democracy.  It was forgivable – even understandable – for this clan of fake conservatives to favor other Republicans for the GOP nomination – hell, I even did that for awhile.  But these people can never be forgiven for this and can never be trusted by any thinking person again for their outright support of the Grasping Grifter.

Yes, I am aware that most of the people I named above and many more #NeverTrump nitwits did the right thing and strongly condemned the smearing of Kavanaugh and those who perpetrated it.  Sorry, that’s not enough, and really, nothing they do can ever change what they did in 2016.  Nothing can ever remove the stain of advocating the election of the Coughing Crook from their reputations.

Simply put, they revealed their true nature at that time as people who can never be trusted or relied upon to protect the rights of Americans again.  It’s like that stain that’s been dried into your favorite t-shirt:  It’s just not ever coming out, no matter what you do.

So #NeverTrust #NeverTrump again.

 

That is all.
