Impeachment Tuesday: Have Right and Wrong “Departed?”

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

Guest Piece by Karen Kataline

On the eve of Impeachment Tuesday in the Senate, I am acutely aware of how strong the positions of people on opposite sides of this historic event are. Both believe they are right and the other side is wrong.

When it comes to the really big truths in life, I’ve never been a fan of bet-hedging or the notion that “The truth is somewhere in the middle.” There are facts and there are what you think and feel about them. Some often confuse the two.  But with so much outright propaganda in politics today, how does one determine the facts?

The dilemma reminds me of the 2006 film, “The Departed” with Jack Nicholson, Matt Damon, Leonardo DiCaprio and Mark Wahlberg.

It’s a clever concept and an intricate story about a mob-connected man (Damon) who becomes a Boston cop to infiltrate the police, while an honest Boston cop with a shady past (DiCaprio) goes under cover to infiltrate the Irish mob.

It’s sort of a role reversal story but the main characters don’t know they are walking in each others’ shoes until later in the film.

When the two men finally come face to face and one captures the other, both beg a well-meaning cop to shoot the other because “He’s the bad guy.”  Since the cop doesn’t have enough information, he does the cautious thing by doing nothing.

The scene is a vivid portrayal of what happens when good is portrayed as evil and evil is portrayed as good. With enough confusion, the average citizen washes his hands of the entire situation and goes to a movie—-maybe even “The Departed” where they know it’s only a movie.

In the case of Donald Trump, the Democrats don’t believe we should consider that the same players have made numerous accusations, all of which have proven to be false—many by the Special Counsel and his team. No matter how many more false accusations they make, they are never held accountable, nor do they ever concede anything. They simply pivot to even more outlandish accusations believing they’ll never be held accountable for those either.  Their motives and misdeeds are regularly revealed to the public but of course, they simply beg us to believe that their opponents (Donald Trump and anyone who supports him and his policies) are the bad guys.

The American People will be the jury come Impeachment Tuesday. They will watch the ever-virulent Democrats try to remove a stunningly successful (even by what used to be their own standards) President, on false accusations which even if true, are not crimes. Yet, the propaganda media has managed to convince a certain segment of the population that prosperity and success are dangerous and failure is infinitely preferable.

While acquittal is the likely outcome in this exercise and Democrats have known that from the start, what is most fascinating is that they think the wholly partisan smearing of Donald Trump as an “Impeached President” will help them in November. Others, like my friend Dr. Gerard Lameiro, think it’s exactly the opposite. They say the longer Democrats keep impeachment in the foreground, the more Republicans will win. I tend to agree. So Lindsay Graham, “Cool it!”

This Tuesday, as will be the case on the first Tuesday in November, the direction we decide to go as a country won’t be just a day at the movies. We will choose between right and wrong, Big government vs. restrained government, and Capitalism vs. Communism.

With issues as big as these, it’s time to know where we stand. The best answer is not “somewhere in the middle.”

President Trump: Right About Ukraine, Right About Puerto Rico

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

You seriously cannot make these people up. – Elizabeth Warren has richly earned the nicknames of Fauxcahontas and Lieawatha. This is a woman who has spent her entire adult life brazenly lying not only about things she has done and things she claims other people have done, but also about who she even is as a person. Literally every aspect of her campaign and claimed personal biography are outright, laughable lies.

So, how does this lifelong 100% fraud of a human being respond, when asked by a reporter if it is wrong for any candidate to lie to the American people? Why, exactly as you would expect her to:

The sad thing is, that statement will most likely actually improve her standing among the Democrat Party’s depraved and ultra-ignorant voter base. Sad.

Trump was right, part 13,811. – As the Senate trial of President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three glorious words) cranks up, it is important for everyone to remember how and why we arrived at this sorry point in the Democrat/media/Deep State’s neverending coup d’etat. As fortune would have it, a very timely and relevant reminder of the President’s good judgment popped up over the weekend in the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico.

First, Ukraine, which has served as the fulcrum for the idiotic Pelosi/Schiff impeachment scam. This entire thing is based on a phone call the U.S. President held with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky back in July. On that call, President Trump asked Zelensky to “do us a favor” and ensure that his equivalent of the Justice Department look into the very shady activities in his country of Joe and Hunter Biden, and to investigate interference in the 2016 election by various officials of the previous Ukrainian government.

Pelosi/Schiff and their toadies in the corrupt American news media have attempted to portray this very valid, lawful and in fact necessary request by Mr. Trump as a crime worthy of having him removed from office. This request was in fact part of the President’s duty in keeping with his oath of office given that the U.S. has multiple anti-corruption laws related to international business transactions, as well as an anti-corruption treaty with the Ukraine that requires both countries to police activities within their borders.

President Trump has long known from his own experience that Ukraine is an utterly corrupt country, and Burisma, the natural gas company that awarded Hunter Biden with a cushy, high-paying seat on its Board of Directors, has been at the center of much of that illicit activity. Corruption has long run rampant in Ukraine, on a par with what we see in the failed state of Mexico.

President Trump has on many occasions described his conduct of this call with Zelensky as “perfect,” and indeed, it was exactly that. It is an undeniable fact that the previous Ukrainian administration did interfere in the 2016 presidential election on behalf of Hillary Clinton and the DNC, and it is an undeniable fact that Hunter and Joe Biden profited handsomely by selling the then-Vice President’s influence to Burisma.

President Trump was right about the Ukraine, and did what his oath of office required him to do.

Now, let’s look at Puerto Rico, the U.S. territory whose government has also long been run by utterly corrupt leftists. After the island was devastated by Hurricane Maria in 2017, President Trump authorized FEMA and the U.S. military to mount a massive relief effort that cost the U.S. taxpayer well over $100 billion.

The President also attempted to take steps to ensure that the distribution of the relief funds and supplies would not be left entirely in the hands of the Puerto Rican government, which he knew to be little but a den of thieves. Again, he was simply doing his job, but of course he was roundly blasted by Democrats and their media toadies who smelled an opportunity to score political points on the backs of suffering Puerto Ricans. Because this is what Democrats do.

The President was portrayed as a heartless, ignorant buffoon who didn’t care about the suffering of all those people who had lost their homes and fortunes in the storm. But in reality, he was attempting to ensure that the relief ended up getting to the people who needed it the most.

In the end, the Administration ended up throwing up its hands and deciding to leave the distribution of the aid in the hands of the Puerto Ricans. Over the weekend, we saw the result of that decision, as the head of Puerto Rico’s emergency management agency was fired after a locked, gigantic warehouse filled with thousands of tons of emergency supplies was discovered and revealed to the public.

As reported by the Daily Caller:

One resident of Ponce posted a video of the discovery to Facebook, showing a massive warehouse full of pallets upon pallets of bottled water, non-perishable food, diapers, baby formula, and emergency supplies, according to CNN. The video is now private, after the man who recorded it was threatened with repercussions from law enforcement, but the news network says the warehouse contained much-needed supplies that are still useful (and valuable) particularly now that Ponce is suffering from a second natural disaster.

Yes, of course the citizen who revealed the atrocity to the public is now being punished by the utterly corrupt, leftist government.

So, yet again we see the President was 100% correct in his assessment of a foreign government. How long can it be before the Democrats who are in league with the Puerto Rican leftists and want to turn that island into the 51st state so their party can have two additional senators try to use this as the pretext for their next impeachment effort?

If these people didn’t exist, you could never make them up in a million years.

That is all.

The Queen Lowers the Boom on Harry and Meghan

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

It’s all couched in flowery royal language, but Harry and Meghan are paying dearly for their Megxit from the Royal Family. – Here’s the official statement from Her Royal Highness on the matter:

Image

Sounds all sweetness and light, doesn’t it? Well, appearances can be deceiving. As reported by Sky News, here are the details of some of the costs to Megs and Harry for disentangling themselves from the Royal circus:

Prince Harry and Meghan will lose royal funds and no longer use their HRH titles from spring, Buckingham Palace has confirmed.

The couple will be known as Harry, Duke of Sussex, and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will also repay £2.4m of taxpayers’ money spent on renovating their Berkshire home – Frogmore Cottage.

Ouch. And you can bet that those few details released along with the Queen’s statement are far from the only costs the young ingrates will bear before they make their final departures for the frigid confines of Canada in the coming weeks. There, they will wait…and wait…and wait five long years for the Trump Administration to finally conclude, since Megs has firmly assured us all that she will never return to the United States while the Bad Orange Man occupies the Oval Office.

Honestly, I have zero real concern about any of this, and frankly find the whole “royal family” thing to be just a very weird British thing, an odd anachronism in the modern world. But I do admire the Queen and the manner in which she has conducted herself amid all her ne’er-do-well relatives for the past 67 years since the throne was thrust upon her.

Good for her for doing what so many Baby-boomer parents have failed to do: She basically told the 35 year-old grandchild who has been sponging off of her and his parents for all these years to go get a job, and come see me on holidays. That’s good grandparenting.

That is all.

Reader Insights Into Looming Situation in Richmond, VA

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

In response to this morning’s Campaign Update regarding the situation developing this weekend in Richmond, Virginia, several  readers have weighed in with some supplemental information. 

First is from a reader who calls himself Va. Gent, a longtime Richmond resident who has eyes on the scene:

As a 50+ year resident of Richmond with family ties back to the 1840’s, allow me to give you a boots-on-the-ground appraisal of the situation for Lobby Day as I see it currently:

  • VCDL [Virginia Civil Defense League] is asking all participants who plan to enter the fenceline surrounding the Capital to NOT carry or wear provocative clothing or signage.
  • VCDL is also advising those with valid conceal carry to post themselves on the perimeter of the fenceline just in case.
  • Word is that ANTIFA plans to march alongside the 2A supporters, as they supposedly don’t agree with the Gov’t intervention. (Jury still out on that one….)
  • Security is ironclad, and the geography of the area around the Capital is all hillsides and narrow streets, with the fortification that is the RIC Federal Reserve building within sight of the Capital grounds.
  • Street closings and predetermined off-site parking/staging areas will be in place, basically negating any vehicular traffic for many blocks surrounding the Capital.
  • Plenty of high-rise buildings in the area will allow for LEO eyes and long guns to train on the crowds. I feel that local LEO’s are on the side of 2A supporters, but only time will tell.
  • Guv Blackface pulled SB16 late this week, which was the most draconian of the bunch, that would have banned all assault rifles, 10+ round mags, etc. Public pushback is completely responsible for this outcome!

To summarize, it looks like the chances of a Charlottesville-style affair are low, but agree that the leftists in the media are spinning this as a white supremacist-fueled protest, as local news has been trumpeting the arrest of 3 out-of-staters caught in Maryland with guns, ammo and “neo-nazi ties”. Convenient thing, that.

At first I planned to attend, but decided to sit this one out and keep my old butt available in the event that a larger conflict breaks out as a result of this or the rest of the General Assembly’s malarkey.

Love the site and your work, David! Keep doing what you’re doing, it is indeed appreciated out here in the Old Dominion, where your collective well-wishes and prayers are sorely needed.

 

Regular reader and contributor Gregg Updike chimes in with a strong point about the migration of the D.C.-base bureaucracy into Northern Virginia during this century:

[George W.] Bush the second also larded up Northern Virginia (NORVA) with Dem voting bureaucrats when he created his two new cabinet level departments: Homeland Security and Intelligence.

I’m hoping the real American rally goers act like the TEA Party did in the Den of Corruption (DC) during the Obamacare Rally ten years ago where they left the National Mall cleaner than when they got there with no violence. If there is violence, VA may well become a real battleground state and I only hope PDJT has the intelligence sources and the plan to mobilize his assets to counter Northam’s schemes.

 

Another regular of our comments section, who calls himself Jimmy MacAfee (I don’t know whether that is his real name or not) is a resident of Lynchburg, VA, a city whose council rejected a motion to become one of the state’s 100-plus 2nd Amendment Sanctuaries. Jimmy provides insight on what took place there:

As for Sanctuary Cities: one councilman, Attorney Randy Nelson of Lynchburg, substituted his own reasoning for opposing the measure; he thinks he’s smarter than all the other councils and boards and their lawyers across Virginia who voted with their citizen’s interests in mind and became resisters of government-sponsored tyranny.

Here’s the thing: if we’re a Democracy, the Lynchburg City Council failed, because most Lynchburgers support the measure; if we’re a Republic, the Council likewise failed, because they failed to represent the will of the people who elected them. It is an embarrassment and humiliation that our name is not on the list of Sanctuary cities, and even the Sheriff spoke at the meeting and stated that he would uphold the Constitution.

The Deep State is flailing, but it still can do a tremendous amount of damage. Stay awake.

Jimmy, who is never one to mince words or hide what he is thinking, also provides a very entertaining assessment of what he thinks about Governor Northam:

Here’s what should happen to Governor Northam if he causes a civil conflict in Virginia:

He should have his name removed in and from any references to VMI.
He should be symbolically removed – drummed out – with a goat taking his place at the ceremony.
He should be removed from office by a recall vote by the citizens of Virginia.
He should be tried for sedition or fomenting rebellion, should his actions facilitate violence in Richmond and elsewhere.

This is an apparently mentally unstable governor, because his attempt to legalize post-birth abortion seems to be a sign of a very sick and demented mind – not to mention the blackface/Klan episode(s) from his past.  He only appears normal, and then not always. He is a tyrannical, unreasonable, unreasoning monster, and if red flag laws are enforced, should lose his right to bear arms.

It was a Virginian (born in South Carolina in 1861) who bragged about teaching Hitler to sterilize the “unfit,” and he was a medical doctor as well: Walter Ashby Plecker, the first director of the Bureau of Vital Statistics, who also statistically eliminated the American Indian from Virginia. He was a Eugenicist unfit for medical duty, and a Virginian who was unfit to hold any office.

The resemblances are not dissimilar, considering Northam’s racist attitudes when he was in college and his support for Eugenics-like procedures and activities.

 

Many thanks to these folks and others who have created a lively and entertaining comments section here at Today’s Campaign Update.

That is all.

Ralph Northam’s Despicable Effort to Create Another Charlottesville

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

WINNING. Sooooooo much WINNING. – Here’s what is funny about this: I’ve actually had complaints this week that I’ve been focusing too much on all the WINNING President Trump is bringing to our country. So, some people who claim to be fans of President Trump actually are getting tired of all this WINNING. Once again, Trump was right when he said “We will WIN so much, you’ll get tired of all the WINNING.”  You can’t make this stuff up.

One more time, every major U.S. stock market index closed at record high levels as investors express their enthusiasm over the President’s Phase I Trade Agreement with China and congress’s final passage of the USMCA. Despite all the false criticism emanating from the corrupt national news media, the markets understand how these trade deals with America’s three largest trading partners will positively impact this country’s economy for years to come.

So, suck it, all you fake, corrupt journalists and contributors at CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times and the Washington Post. Your efforts, in concert with the Democrat Party, to talk this country into an economic recession that began last summer have, like everything else you have tried to harm this President and what he is accomplishing for America, miserably failed. That could not possibly happen to a nicer bunch of evil minions.

Meanwhile, out in the Commonwealth of Virginia, Governor Baby Killer Blackface KKK Ralph Northam thinks creating a mere recession is just small potatoes. – Northam, along with this Democrat majority in the state assembly, is apparently intent on planting the seeds for a second civil war. That appears to be the only rational interpretation of the moves and public statements Governor Northam and fellow Virginia Democrats have been making in recent weeks.

As the Democrats in the assembly advance a series of gun control bills , assembly members and  Northam himself have promised they will result in law enforcement going door to door if necessary to confiscate certain kinds of guns from ordinary citizens. Gun rights groups have very predictably responded by organizing a massive rally in support of the 2nd Amendment to take place in the state capital of Richmond this weekend. The rally will be held Monday as a part of the Virginia Civil Defense League’s (VCDL) annual lobby day.

Governor Northam has reacted harshly – again, very predictably – to the rally, declaring a state of emergency based on only the vaguest of pretenses.

Here’s the text of his declaration:

Credible intelligence gathered by Virginia’s law enforcement agencies indicates that tens of thousands of advocates plan to converge on Capitol Square for events culminating on January 20, 2020. Available information suggests that a substantial number of these demonstrators are expected to come from outside the Commonwealth, may be armed, and have as their purpose not peaceful assembly but violence, rioting, and insurrection.”

Have you ever seen so many weasel words crammed into just two sentences?

“Credible intelligence” and “available information” you say? What in the hell does that even mean? And “plan to converge on Capitol Square”? How did you know that? Why, could it be because the VCDL properly applied for a lawful permit to use that public space? You know, like a group of good, law-abiding American citizens, i.e., not Antifa, might do?

And what is a “substantial number” in your mind, Governor? Is it 1,000? 100? 10?

Democrats like Northam never complain when people come from out of state to join in liberal protest marches, or hell, even to vote illegally in their elections. Just so long as they vote Democrat, right? Right.

Clearly, Governor Blackface and his friends in the corrupt news media are attempting to set the narrative for Sunday’s rally as being the sequel to the 2017 Charlottesville fiasco, when a couple of dozen bad actors provided the pretense for the media to smear thousands attending an otherwise peaceful rally as being “white supremacists.” This is how every rally-goer on Sunday will also be portrayed if the media can find one clown wearing a confederate flag patch on his jacket or forming his fingers into what used to be the “ok” sign. So, expect that to happen.

Regardless of what really takes place in Richmond this weekend, Governor KKK will without any question at all attempt to spin it as a rationale to continue pushing for his gun control/confiscation legislation. But he and his fellow Democrats have a real, sticky problem in seeing this effort through to its logical conclusion.

That problem centers on the reality that Virginia is a mostly-rural state. Once you get out of the isolated population centers of Richmond, Arlington and Alexandria, the rest of Virginia is as red as red can be. The state’s 2016 election map looks like a miniature microcosm of the national map, with small islands of blue interspersed amidst a sea of red:

Trump Scrambles Open Race for Virginia Governor

Prior to 2009, Virginia actually was a fairly reliable state for Republicans. But that has all changed with eight years of America’s Biggest Mistake, Barack Obama, and the massive expansion of the D.C.-based federal bureaucracy he inflicted on the nation. Even with Obama’s rapid raising of federal salaries, real estate in the District of Columbia remained too expensive for most bureaucrats, so tens of thousands of them settled across the Potomac in Arlington and Alexandria.

Given that well over 90% of federal bureaucrats are Democrats by nature, that massive emigration of the bureaucracy into Virginia ended up shifting the state’s politics.

Very predictably, those red, rural counties have taken exception to the Democrats’ looming gun grab. At last count, 105 counties and cities in Virginia have now taken the step of declaring themselves second amendment sanctuaries, with local officials promising to defy any efforts by the state government to confiscate firearms within their jurisdictions.

Should Governor Northam and his Democrat minions end up enacting these gun control bills and follow them through to their logical conclusion, many Virginia gun owners will not go quietly, and the country could find itself in a real constitutional crisis. Unless the Democrats begin to moderate what they are doing, they might be sowing the seeds for a second civil war in this country.

Sadly, Governor Northam seems by his actions and words to be perfectly fine with, and maybe even intent on, doing exactly that.

That is all.

Twitter User Goes on a CNN-Exposing Tour de Force

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

I don’t know who Shem Horne is. – He only identifies himself on his Twitter profile as an “Ancient Russianbot Theorist,” a “Trump voter” and a “supporter of Israel.” But a reader pointed me to an epic thread he posted on Twitter Thursday night, which takes us on a grand tour through a history of CNN’s corrupt fake news hackery over the past few years.

At the time I’m compiling this piece, his thread has received about 800 retweets and 1800 likes. In the interest of giving his fantastic message as broad a distribution as possible, I’m going to link, cut and paste most of the thread here.

 

This tweet sent out by CNN hack Chris Cillizza is what motivated Horne to go on his epic tour de force:

Here’s the original tweet that leads off Horne’s thread:

He continues:

On top of that, CNN doxed a random lady for being a Trump supporter and showed up on her front lawn with a camera crew, doxed someone for making a meme about CNN and threatened to out him if he didn’t stop making memes and apologize, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

CNN PR claimed that it was racist to call Chris Cuomo “Fredo” in response to Cuomo threatening to throw a stranger down a flight of stairs, and didn’t retract once reports surfaced showing Cuomo calling himself Fredo.

And this one time, Brian Stelter spent two entire weeks lying about President Trump and Hurricane Dorian. TWO WEEKS. He kept going even after people pointed out that CNN themselves predicted Hurricane Dorian may hit Alabama lol.

CNN repeatedly pushes the lies about President Trump’s Charlottesville comments, literally blames President Trump for every act of violence in the country, and falsely claims he is an anti-Semite whenever it’s convenient for them.

CNN is the lowest of the low, the fakes of all the fake news, completely unwatchable trash, enemy of the people, and yes they are absolutely 100 percent liberal hacks and everyone should point that out until they stop being liberal hacks and apologize for stoking hatred and fear.

Also this one time Jim Acosta karate chopped a White House intern, rightfully had his press pass taken away, and got a bias judge to give him his press pass back and is one of the main reasons we don’t have press briefings anymore.

 

But wait, there’s more!

 

Less than two months ago CNN went full on insane and tried to claim President Trump had a heart attack when he went to his annual physical, even though they knew there was nothing wrong with him because his doctor issued a statement.

Remember that time CNN ruined Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson life solely because he gave President Trump a clean bill of health? I remember.

And who could forget the countless hours of airtime they gave to Avennati lol. They claimed he would beat President Trump in an election. This fantastic thread has multiple examples of this.
 

And he ends with…:

I could keep going but it would take literally days to point out all of the examples of CNN being absolute liberal hacks, they have proven it so often that it’s impossible to remember them all, but people don’t forget the underlying truth. They are fake news, liberal hacks /end

 

Fantastic. Pure, epic greatness.

Kudos to you, Shem Horne, for pantsing the despicable liberal hacks who corrupt the cable airwaves and pollute our nation’s airports each and every day with their corrupt news-faking.

That is all.

Another Comey Investigation, Another Chance for William Barr to Finally Act

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

Yet another narrative-setter from the NYTimes’s deep state mouthpiece hack, Adam Goldman. – Honestly, this is getting to be almost as frequent as the stock market closing at new record highs, something that also happened yet again on Thursday.

Goldman posted a piece yesterday designed to set the narrative for the Times’s Deep State managers, this time in favor of our National Teenage Drama Queen, former FBI Director James Comey. Goldman gets down to his cover business right from the start, with this headline:

Justice Dept. Investigating Years-Old Leaks and Appears Focused on Comey

Oh, hey, it’s just more leaks by Comey – and hey, we all have known for years Comey was a serial leaker – and the leaks in question might have involved classified information, but they are “years-old”, so what’s the big deal here? Right? Right.

But then Goldman really gets down to business with his sub-head, which is an even more blatantly-slanted statement designed to convince readers to condemn not the criminal – Comey – but the investigators:

An inquiry into years-old disclosures of classified information is highly unusual and leaves law enforcement officials open to accusations of politicizing their work.

So, that’s a two-for-one deal, not only sucking up to the Drama Queen, but also consistent with the corrupt news media’s ongoing efforts to smear Attorney General William Barr. Goldman has achieved all of that, and we haven’t even gotten into the text of his piece. That’s gold star stuff right there.

Let’s go to the first two paragraphs, of the piece, which first lay out the bare bones of what is actually taking place, and then quickly manages to also smear President Donald Trump:

WASHINGTON — Federal prosecutors in Washington are investigating a years-old leak of classified information about a Russian intelligence document, and they appear to be focusing on whether the former F.B.I. director James B. Comey illegally provided details to reporters, according to people familiar with the inquiry.

The case is the second time the Justice Department has investigated leaks potentially involving Mr. Comey, a frequent target of President Trump, who has repeatedly called him a “leaker.” Mr. Trump recently suggested without evidence that Mr. Comey should be prosecuted for “unlawful conduct” and spend years in prison.

There’s that favorite corrupt media phrase, “without evidence,” which is only used against Republicans and always manages to ignore the mountain of information in the public domain supporting the President’s statement. But hey, that’s what corrupt reporters at the New York Times are trained to do, so Goldman might get a promotion for checking off so many Deep State narrative piece boxes before we even get to his third paragraph.

You have to go to paragraph 4 to get to the essence of what the investigators are really looking into:

Law enforcement officials are scrutinizing at least two news articles about the F.B.I. and Mr. Comey, published in The New York Times and The Washington Post in 2017, that mentioned the Russian government document, according to the people familiar with the investigation. Hackers working for Dutch intelligence officials obtained the document and provided it to the F.B.I., and both its existence and the collection of it were highly classified secrets, the people said.

So, hey, Comey was leaking “highly classified secrets” to the New York Times (shocking!) and the Washington Post, the two major print mouth organs for the Democrat Party and the Deep State, which are largely, but not entirely, the same thing. Given everything we have found out about these three specific players over the last four years, this is akin to informing the Times readership that water is indeed wet.

So, what is the actual, exact nature of this “Russian intelligence document,” you ask? Well, you naturally have to go deep into bowels of the report where few of the Times short attention span readers will bother to tread to discover that it is actually nothing more than an official Democrat National Committee email sent by then-DNC Chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz to one Leonard Benardo, an official with the Open Society Foundations, a group funded by … wait for it … George Soros.

Oh.:

The latest investigation involves material that Dutch intelligence operatives siphoned off Russian computers and provided to the United States government. The information included a Russian analysis of what appeared to be an email exchange during the 2016 presidential campaign between Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Democrat of Florida who was also the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee at the time, and Leonard Benardo, an official with the Open Society Foundations, a democracy-promoting organization whose founder, George Soros, has long been a target of the far right.

Note the sympathetic nod to Soros at the end, which attempts to portray this despicable Democracy-destroying monster as some sort of victim. This is how depraved Goldman really is.

The next paragraph is a real doozy, which is why Goldman and his corrupt editors buried it so deeply:

In the email, Ms. Wasserman Schultz suggested that then-Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch would make sure that Mrs. Clinton would not be prosecuted in the email case. Both Ms. Wasserman Schultz and Mr. Benardo have denied being in contact, suggesting the document was meant to be Russian disinformation.

So, gee, here we have the Chairman of the DNC telling a radical anti-American Soros operative that Loretta Lynch was putting in the fix on the Clinton email investigation. Gosh, imagine that.

But Goldman attempts to come to Lynch’s rescue two paragraphs later, working very hard to imply that the official DNC email is just a Russian fake:

Whether the document was fake remains an open question. But American officials at the time did not believe that Ms. Lynch would hinder the Clinton email investigation, and neither Ms. Wasserman Schultz nor Mr. Benardo had any inside information about it. Still, if the Russians had released the information after the inquiry was closed, it could have tainted the outcome, hurt public confidence in the Justice Department and sowed discord.

That first sentence is an outright fabrication. Many experts have examined the raft of DNC emails that have been made public since 2016, and not a single one of those emails has been found to have been fake. That is a disgraceful fake news sentence. Thus, totally expected from a Deep State toady at the New York Times.

Then there’s the sentence about “American officials” at the time not believing that Lynch would hinder the Clinton fake investigation by the FBI: Who was a higher “official” within the Democrat Party than the freaking Chairman of the DNC, the person who is outright telling a Soros lackey that the AG was in fact fixing the FBI’s fake investigation?

The piece just gets more disgustingly biased from there, but you can read the rest for yourselves if you care to do so.

Bottom line: All of this information most likely came from Comey and his lawyers, who are probably the “sources” for Goldman. Here we have Comey under investigation one more time for his serial leaking, a pattern of behavior that William Barr’s DOJ already decided to give the Drama Queen a pass on when he was actually the subject of a criminal referral last year by IG Michael Horowitz.

There is no real doubt that Comey is guilty; the only question is whether or not Barr will ever decide to do anything about it. This is a crime for which hundreds of millions of ordinary Americans would spend time in prison for committing. Why should Jim Comey be any different? Of course, we all know the answer to that by now.

So, once again, William Barr is presented with a prime opportunity to prove that he is indeed dedicated to ending the two-tiered system of justice that Attorneys General of the 21st century have fully implemented in our country. This very, very low-hanging fruit for an AG with good intent.

I wish I had more confidence that Barr would to finally, at long last, pick that low-hanging fruit and do something real.

That is all.

Did Trump Just Deliver the Greatest Week of Economic WINNING in U.S. History?

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

Right on the heels of the completion of the Phase I Trade Agreement with China, the U.S. Senate overwhelmingly approved the new U.S./Mexico/Canada Agreement (USMCA) on Thursday. The approved bill now goes to President Trump’s desk for his signing, which will probably take place next week.

In a terrific interview on Fox Business today, White House Manufacturing Policy Advisor Peter Navarro called it “the greatest two days in U.S. trade policy history.” He isn’t wrong.

Below is a clip of the interview – since it has subtitles, I won’t include a transcript here.

In reaction to these two historic trade days, all stock market indexes closed yet again at all-time record highs. That’s a story that cannot be told often enough, but it was far from the only fantastic economic news that the fake, corrupt news media ignored today.

Here are some more extremely positive highlights, as reported at the People’s Pundit Daily:

  • Business Applications gained 3.4% in the 4th quarter of 2019; Projected business formations rose 4.5% compared to the 3rd quarter.
  • The advance estimates of U.S. retail sales for December was $529.6 billion, an increase of 0.3% (±0.4%) from November, and 5.8% (±0.7%) year-over-year.
  • The Philadelphia Fed’s Manufacturing Business Outlook Survey rose 15 points in January to 17, nearly six times the consensus forecast. Indicators for current activity, new orders, shipments, and employment were all positive and increased from December.
  • Initial jobless claims fell again, once again easily beating “expert” forecasts for the week ending January 11. We’re now at just 204,000 and it’s the monthly jobs report period, meaning the next jobs report could be big.
  • The Housing Market Index (HMI) finds builder confidence started the year very strong, shedding just one point from the month prior, the highest level since 1999.

Again, all of this incredible economic news will be largely ignored by the corrupt national news media as it focuses all of its efforts on supporting the Democrats’ neverending coup d’etat scam. But here’s reality: When President Trump says the U.S. economy is the strongest it has ever been, he isn’t kidding.

God Bless America.

That is all.

Let’s Stop and Recognize all the Good Things Happening in America

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

Guest Piece by Gregg Updike

There are real signs that actual justice is being delivered to cheaters, evil doers, and other criminals.  Maybe not as fast as we would like, but it is happening.  Look at what is occurring in the sports and entertainment industry:

Earlier this week, the Commissioner of Major League Baseball, Robert Manfred, announced the conclusion of MLB’s exhaustive several month long investigation of the Houston Astro electronic sign-stealing scandal.  The penalties meted out were severe and had several major repercussions which haven’t totally played out.

The Astros’ general manager, Jeff Luhnow and field manager, A. J. Hinch were both suspended for one year for using electronic surveillance to facilitate on-field cheating beginning (at least) in the 2017 post season.  The owner, Jim Crane, was fined five million dollars and the Astros lost their first and second round draft picks for the next two years.  This is a huge sanction and nearly unheard of in American Professional Sports.

Luhnow and Hinch were subsequently fired by the Astros, despite leading them to one of the best records in baseball for the last five or so years; by all accounts, they were running a model franchise.  These two were considered to be among the best baseball brains in the game; how the mighty have fallen.

The fallout has extended to Alex Cora; he was Hinch’s bench coach (the #2 man) in 2017 during their World Series winning season.  In 2018, be became the Red Sox’ field manager and led the Red Sox to the World Championship in his first year.  Yesterday he was (mutually agreed upon) dismissed from the Red Sox for his part in the 2017 Astros’ scandal and for a pending cheating investigation into the Red Sox 2018-9 seasons.  The final outcome of MLB’s investigations may also reach the New York Mets’ new field manager, Carlos Beltran.  Beltran was an Astros’ player in 2017 and has been implicated in the scandal and may also be “resigned” before he even manages a game for the Mets.

It is rare for such severe, and justified, punishment to be handed out to prominent, respected, and beloved (by many in the industry) leaders in America’s “Toy Department” known as professional sports.

Now , let’s check out what has transpired with the entertainment and “news” industry:

Harvey Weinstein is facing a whole lot of legal problems and his Hollywood “kingmaker” reputation has been forever shattered.

Michael Avenatti was recently actually taken into custody by the IRS during a hearing in court on another matter; he too is in heap-big trouble on may fronts.  He is the male version of the noted, publicity-seeking, and infamous celebrity lawyer and shakedown artist, Gloria Allred.  CNN, MSMBC, and other “news” outlets couldn’t get enough of him and his bogus accusations against President Trump and Justice Brett Kavanaugh.  Much of the Mainstream Media was actually touting him as a viable contender for the Democratic Presidential Nomination to run against Trump.

CNN just settled with the Covington High School Student, Nick Sandman, who will also successfully sue the other malignant organizations and people who gratuitously slandered him.

The ratings of most news networks, award shows, and left sponsored “debates”, are in the tank, as are the attendance figures of so many “message” movies starring loudmouth idiot activists.  The dead tree media is all but dead, with many newspapers shutting down.

The over-the-top vilification of the President and his supporters by the left for the last three plus years, and the (until now) well disguised hidden agenda of so many prominent people and so many “trusted” organizations has been exposed for all to see.  These once highly regarded people and organizations have been revealed as shams built on houses of cards.  They live and exist in glass houses, which are just waiting for the right stone to hit them and have the whole fraud of their existence collapse upon them; it is inevitable.

The “entertainers” are in the process of getting their just rewards, as conservative voices are fighting back against their PC garbage and are being heard.  Ricky Gervais’ (hardly a conservative) Golden Globes monologue is an excellent example of this recent push-back.  Soon the government and media cabal who have committed so many crimes against the people and our republic will have their comeuppance and get the “due process” they so richly deserve; a due process they so willingly deny to their political and cultural enemies.  They may not ultimately be incarcerated or punished as severely as we conservatives would like, but I have no doubt that eventually meaningful punishment will be forthcoming to the guilty.

It is perhaps surprising the entertainment industry, as (sadly) more Americans are tuned into it rather than government and politics, is the first to be exposed and punished, rather than the corrupt “public servants”.  The trend toward justice is being set in the minds of much of the public and the momentum is growing for more genuine justice to prevail during the Trump and future conservative administrations.

However, this positive trend will only continue with the reelection of Trump and election of true conservative presidents and members of Congress in all future elections.  A couple of elections with mixed results, won’t solve all our problems; we need to be active in all elections.  We are now being armed with the facts and knowledge of the left’s true agenda; therefore, we Americans must continue the good fight against crime and evil, or it will fester and return with a vengeance.

As President Ronald Reagan said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction…”  How true!

That is all.
