ChiCom Influence Shows it is Time to Bust the Corrupt News Media Trusts

The Mid-Day Campaign Update

The left-wing activists who run NPR actually performed a rare public service on Tuesday, publishing an expose’ that reveals how Bloomberg News covers for the communist Chinese government in order to maintain its license to operate within that nation. The story demonstrates how Bloomberg’s longing to remain entangled with the inherently corrupt and dishonest ChiComs rendered its own operation equally as corrupt and dishonest.

The NPR piece relates that, in 2013, after publishing part 1 of a story detailing the enormous wealth being accumulated by the ChiCom Party elite – typical of what happens in all communist nations – Bloomberg’s China operation drafted part 2 of that story, “focusing on Chinese leaders’ ties to the country’s richest man, Wang Jianlin. Among those in the reporters’ sights: the family of new Chinese President Xi Jinping.” NPR relates that emails show that Bloomberg’s New York honchos expressed excitement upon an initial reading of the piece, but then suddenly quit communicating on the subject, and the story never ran.

The Bloomberg China office’s continuing inquiries about the matter eventually got them a conference call with the company’s famously-bombastic original editor-in-chief, Matthew Winkler, and NPR somehow obtained a recording made of that call. Boy, is it revealing.

From the NPR Article:

“It is for sure going to, you know, invite the Communist Party to, you know, completely shut us down and kick us out of the country,” Winkler said. “So, I just don’t see that as a story that is justified.”

He expressed great apprehension because of the potential consequences of publishing another investigation. In this case, it was one that would itemize the links between top Chinese Communist Party leaders and the country’s wealthiest man.

Winkler returned to those fears repeatedly. “The inference is going to be interpreted by the government there as we are judging them,” Winkler said. “And they will probably kick us out of the country. They’ll probably shut us down, is my guess.”

Winkler suggested reporters could find a uniquely “Bloomberg” way to cover the wealth of Chinese ruling elites. But he added a caution about covering the regime.

“It has to be done with a strategic framework and a tactical method that is … smart enough to allow us to continue and not run afoul of the Nazis who are in front of us and behind us everywhere,” Winkler said, according to the audio reviewed by NPR and verified by others. “And that’s who they are. And we should have no illusions about it.”

At the time, two Bloomberg editors told NPR the story didn’t run because it needed additional reporting. Winkler publicly said much the same. But these audio recordings reveal otherwise. They also show how much newsroom leaders were worried about losing lucrative business in China.

[End]

So, basically what we see here is a “news” organization quashing the real news in order to avoid offending corrupt national leaders the editor-in-chief refers to as “Nazis.” Yes, by all means, let’s not offend the Nazis. Let’s be sure to play nice with them and continue to give them access to our “news” platform so that our company and multi-billionaire owner who has enormous business interests in China can keep them intact.

Now, if you think Bloomberg is the only U.S. “news” media operation with enormous business ties to the ChiCom government, go Google “AT&T China.” When you do that, the second link that comes up provides you with a link to AT&T’s Global Business landing page for its operations in China. Here is an excerpt from the text on that landing page:

AT&T has been in China for more than 30 years. AT&T China has strong technical expertise with branch offices in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Tianjin and Shenzhen.

AT&T in China

Through collaborations with local service providers, AT&T is able to make available an advanced Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) IP-based network with MPLS Service Nodes in mainland China, covering more than 300 cities around the country.

With such teaming with local service providers, clients across China can benefit from an industry-leading portfolio that includes Mobility, Network, Network Security, Cloud, Hosting, Voice, Unified Communications and Application services. These are implemented locally by experienced personnel and supported by a local AT&T team.

AT&T should be the first port of call for any business or organization looking to mobilize its people, assets or information across China and beyond.

[End]

Oh. You don’t say.

Why is AT&T relevant to this conversation? Why, because AT&T is the corporate owner of … wait for it … oh, you have to wait for this one … you guessed it: CNN!

Now you know why you see CNN talking heads like Jim Acosta, Jake Tapper and Fredo Cuomo pushing ChiCom talking points verbatim out to their viewers every day.

Now, go Google “Comcast China,” and note that the second link that comes up is to a 2014 Forbes story titled, “Comcast To Build A $3.3 Billion Theme Park In Beijing.” $3.3 billion, huh? That’s a lot of money, even to Mike Bloomberg.

The next link that comes up is to Xfinity’s landing page for its multiple China-based business offerings. Guess which corporation owns Xfinity now? If you said ‘Comcast,’ you are catching on here. And now you know why the talking heads on NBC and MSNBC – also wholly-owned subsidiaries of Comcast – keep reciting ChiCom talking points to you 24 hours a day.

You want to know why CBS shills for China? Go Google “Viacom China.” Want to know why ABC does the same? Google “Disney China,” and you will find stories about billions upon billions of that company’s investments in China, all dependent on maintaining the good graces of the ChiCom government that is led by the very same Xi Jinping, who was to have been one of the prime subjects of that Part 2 Bloomberg story that never ran back in 2013.

Oh.

And now, as the late, great Paul Harvey used to say, you know the rrrrrrrrrrrest of the story.

The mainstream U.S. news media consists of garbage operations run by garbage human beings who are willing to literally sell their souls and professional ethics in order to protect the business interests of their corporate overlords. They truly are the Enemies of the People.

The only way to remedy this situation is for the Trump Department of Justice to use the nation’s anti-trust laws to outlaw the ownership of news media operations by corporations or individuals with foreign business interests. This current situation simply cannot be allowed to continue.

That is all.

Watch the Corrupt Reporters Turn on Dr. Fauci in Real Time

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

The immutable truth about today’s corrupt news media is that it operates on a narrative coordinated with the Democrat Party. Reporters are not the legendary – probably imaginary – intrepid souls of black and white noir films from the 1930s and 1940s, dogged pursuers of the truth in their role as the people’s watchdog over those in power. What we call “reporters” today are actually narrative engineers, individuals corrupted by those in power who are given an overarching, politically-motivated narrative by their editors and the people who control their editors, and who go out every day to look only for information that can be used to support that preconceived narrative.

We see this played out in real time every day on our TV screens in the question and answer sessions that take place during the White House Coronavirus Task Force updates. The reporters in the room, with a few exceptions, are not there to actually gather information about the Wuhan Virus that might be useful in the lives of their readers and viewers; they are there to argue with the President, the Vice President and the medical experts in a way that they hope will elicit responses that fit the day’s narrative.

Thanks to his stupid statements made over the week on CNN and MSNBC, yesterday’s narrative coming into the update was all about Dr. Anthony Fauci. Fauci, in his boundless search for media attention, had decided it would be a great idea this past weekend to do interviews with execrable hacks like CNN’s Jake Tapper and MSNBC’s Al Sharpton. During those interviews, he agreed with leading questions from both hacks whose premise was that lives could have been saved if only the evil Orange Man in the White House would have acted sooner.

Which is, logically, unarguable. Hell, if only the President had ESP and had shut down the most prosperous economy the world has ever seen in, let’s say, 2017 in anticipation of this virus, then all those people who the virus has killed might be alive today. Or maybe half of them would have died by suicide or deprivation after losing their jobs, homes and ability to purchase food. Or maybe they and millions of others would have all died because we would be living the real-life version of Mad Max and/or the Hunger Games right now had that taken place in 2017. Who knows?

But the narrative was set, and all Fauci had to do was to stay silent while the narrative engineers pounded on the President in order to keep it going. But, to his credit, the overly-loquacious Doctor chose not to do that. Instead, he made a point of attempting to clarify those weekend remarks in a way that not only killed the “Trump acted too late” narrative, but also decimated the corrupt media’s “Trump never listens to the experts” narrative that they have repeatedly attempted to mount over the past three months.

In the clip below you will see Fauci state categorically that President Trump not only listens to the advice of the “experts,” but has responded to each and every one of their recommendations. Watch:

 

Transcript:

Fauci: I had an interview yesterday that I was asked a hypothetical question, and hypothetical questions can sometime get you into some difficulty because it’s what would have, or could have. The nature of the hypothetical question was, if in fact we had mitigated earlier, could lives have been saved?

And the answer to my question was, as I always do, and I’m doing right now, perfectly honestly say ‘yes.’ Obviously, mitigation helps. I have been up here many times telling you that mitigation works. So, if mitigation works, and you instigate it and initiate it earlier, you will probably have saved more lives. If you initiated it later, you probably would have lost more lives. You initiate it at a certain time.

That was taken as a way that maybe something somehow was at fault here. So, let me tell you from my experience, and I can only speak from my own experience, is that we had been talking before any meetings that we had about the pros and the cons, the effectiveness or the not, of strong mitigations. So the discussions were going on, mostly among the medical people, about what that would mean.

The first and only time that Dr. Birx and I went in and made a formal recommendation to the President to actually have a “shutdown,” in the sense of not really a shutdown but to really have strong mitigation, we discussed it. Obviously there would be concern by some that in fact that might have some negative consequences. Nonetheless, the President listened to the recommendation and went to the mitigation. 

The next, second time, that I went with Dr. Birx into the President and said, 15 days are not enough: We need to go 30 days, obviously there were people who had a problem with that because of the potential secondary effects. Nonetheless, at that time, the President went with the health recommendations, and we extended it another 30 days. 

So, I can only tell you what I know, and what my recommendations were. But clearly, as happens all the time, there were interpretations to that response to a hypothetical question that I just thought would be very nice for me to clarify because I didn’t have a chance to clarify. Thank you.

[He thinks he’s done here: Boy, was he in for a rude awakening. He had just decimated not one, but two narratives almost all of those reporters had carried into that room with them, and they were not going to let him get away so easily.]

Reporter: [As Fauci tries to leave the podium] Do you remember the date?

Fauci: No, I, to be honest with you, I don’t even know what the date was. But I can just tell you that the first and only time that we went in and said that we need to do mitigations strongly, the response was ‘yes, we’ll do it.’

Reporter: What did he do? Did he lift the travel restrictions?

Fauci: No, the travel restriction is separate. That was whether or not we want to go into a mitigation stage, of 15 days of mitigation. The travel was another recommendation, when we went in and said we probably should be doing that, and the answer was ‘yes.’ And then another time was we should do it with Europe, and the answer was ‘yes.’ And the next time, we should do it with the UK, and the answer was ‘yes.’

Reporter: In this interview, you said there was pushback. Where did that pushback come from?

Fauci: No, that was the wrong choice of words. You know what it was? When people discuss, not necessarily in front of the President, when people discuss, they say, ‘well, this is going to have maybe a harmful effect on this, or that. So, it was a poor choice of words. There wasn’t anybody saying ‘no, you shouldn’t do that.

Reporter: [Now clearly angry that the guy has destroyed her directed narratives, which might force her to actually engage in independent thought processes she hasn’t used in years.] Are you doing this voluntarily, or did the President advise you…

Fauci: No, I’m doing it….everything I do is voluntarily. Please. Don’t even imply that.

[End]

Wow, that look on Fauci’s face at the end for the hack reporter just reeks of contempt and disgust. It was his best public moment during this entire three-month process.

Now, I’m trying hard to be charitable this morning, and the most charitable thing that can be said for Dr. Fauci is that he is an attention hog who does too many media appearances for his own good. Making matters worse, he obviously doesn’t understand the nature of today’s corrupt corporate news media operations, and stupidly thinks people like Al Sharpton, Jake Tapper and the hack reporter from CBS [Paula Reid, whose husband lobbies congress for Chinese interests] who was peppering him with slanted questions in that clip are his friends and have his best interests at heart.

Let’s go with that charitable assessment of Fauci, and let’s further say that his naivete’ about the nature of the media leads him to believe that if he just answers their questions as honestly as he can that all will be sweetness and light with his world.

If that bit of charity is indeed an accurate description of Fauci and his mindset, then the best thing anyone can do for him would be to counsel him to keep his mug off of the nation’s TV screens, except for these daily Task Force updates. Because what he has been doing for the past three months, repeatedly creating these media-generated dust-ups that undermine the efforts of the Task Force, has been incredibly counterproductive, not just for him and the President, but for the entire country.

Enough.

That is all.

South Carolina Debate Confirms: This is now Bernie Sanders’ Race to Lose

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

Ok, I’m embarrassed to admit it, but I watched the Democrat debate last night. What a damn circus. – I suppose the best thing to say about this one was that at least they didn’t spend ten minutes promising to ban fracking, blot the global landscape with millions of 700 ft. tall windmills, and use Unicorn breath to power their fantasy-based energy plans.

But while the panel of pedantic CBS moderators at least spared us from that indignity, every other Democrat fantasy was played out once again for all to see on national television. Here are some of the highlights:

  • Quid Pro Joe Biden, after informing America that he personally wrote the assault weapons ban – which will come as a huge surprise to Dianne Feinstein – of the 1990s, told us in his very next breath that, since that ban was repealed in 2006, “150 million Americans” have been mowed down on our streets by gun violence (the actual number is about 1/1000th of that). As if to emphasize that his multiple brain aneurysms were acting up again, the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator emphasized that orders of magnitude exaggeration by informing us that that is more than those who have died in all of America’s wars combined (it isn’t even close). The raving lunatic will most likely claim he was misquoted today, that is if any corrupt journalist even bothers to ask him about it.
  • The Commie went basically untouched throughout the debate, even though every other candidate did their best to molest him. But Sanders is just too unflappable to take their bait. His best moment for the demented Democrat voter base – and worst moment for his general election prospects – came when he once again expounded on the joys of Fidel Castro’s half-century of communist despotism in Cuba. He had even Fauxcahontas shaking her head in frustration by the end of the night.
  • Speaking of Lieawatha, she repeated her outright lie about being fired from a teaching job at age 21 because she was pregnant, a lie that none of the corrupt fake CBS journalists made any effort to question. She laid out that whopper in the context of excoriating Mini-Mike Bloomberg for once telling a newly-pregnant female employee to “kill it!” Warren obviously went into last night’s debate hoping to devastate the tiny ex-mayor as she did in last week’s Las Vegas debate, but the “kill it” reference turned out to be a bridge too far, one that had even the CNN panelists tsk-tsking at her after the debate.
  • Speaking of mayors, Preacher Pete was his usual sanctimoniously loquacious self, constantly interrupting others and pontificating about all manner of issues related to which he has zero practical experience, like Middle East policy. The guy who proved incapable of competently managing a town of 100,000 residents has a detailed plan for literally everything, making him the perfect running mate for The Commie, for whom he could serve in multiple roles as vice presidential candidate, accountant, actuary and lay preacher.
  • Tom Steyer helped Mini-Mike form billionaire bookends at opposite ends of the stage lineup, and he stood there barking like a madman and constantly doing the whole rock-n-roll base guitarist chicken head nod as if he was yelling in time with a bad Black Sabbath number. No one could possibly pay attention to the words he was actually screaming due to all of the visual distractions he presents.
  • Stuck standing next to Steyer and hopefully wearing ear plugs was Amy Klobuchar, who probably had the best night of any of the participants in terms of potentially appealing to enough voters to actually win in November. But it won’t matter. She simply cannot compete in the money race, and she makes too much occasional sense to ever hope to win the Party’s nomination in July. Her best moment came when she was talking about a housing bill she had authored, and Biden jumped in with one of his patented Turrets Syndrome-like “I wrote that bill!” blurts. Klobuchar just shook her head like an impatient mom scolding a 5 year-old child and said, “Joe, you didn’t write that bill.” I do not agree with Klobuchar on basically anything, but I’ve developed a grudging admiration for her because she is pretty much the only person on that stage who is authentically stating the things she believes. But authenticity, of course, is basically a death knell for any Democrat presidential candidate, so she will continue to tread water in the race.
  • Finally, there’s Mr. Excitement, Mini-Mike Bloomberg. As mentioned above, Lieawatha went after him fiercely again because she has made the calculation that Bloomberg can’t stop The Commie and she sees herself now as Sanders’ likely running mate. The best thing that can be said about Bloomberg’s performance last night is that it wasn’t quite as awful as his performance last week. He was certainly helped along by moderators Norah O’Donnell and Gayle King, who tossed him several softball questions that the two had obviously prepared for in advance. Like Lester Holt last week, both CBS talking heads behaved as if they were firmly on Mr. Excitement’s payroll and want to stay there. Packing the auditorium’s audience with a no-doubt paid-for cheering section also helped.

The big question coming into this debate was whether Mini-Mike could rehabilitate himself and stop the bleeding following his disastrous performance in Las Vegas. The answer appears to be that he may have done just enough stabilize things through Super Tuesday, now just 6 days away. The tiny ex-Mayor’s problem there, though, is that he doesn’t hold a clear lead in a single one of those states as of today. He needed a big-time, confidence-inspiring performance last night and he just is not capable of delivering that in a debate format, especially one as chaotic as these Democrat debates have become.

The big winners last night were, in order:

Donald Trump, for the same obvious reasons he has been the big winner of all the previous Democrat debates;

The Commie, who didn’t take any big hits and will remain the clear front-runner;

Quid Pro Joe, who likely did just enough despite his major gaffe to secure a win in South Carolina.

The big losers were, in order:

Tom Steyer, who will lose badly on Saturday after pouring tens of millions into South Carolina;

Preacher Pete, who needed some sort of big moment to remain viable, and couldn’t do it.

 

Bottom line: Despite all of the histrionics and buffoonery on stage, this ended up being a status quo debate, one that solidified Quid Pro Joe’s firewall in South Carolina, firmed-up The Commie’s standing as the clear front-runner for the nomination, and ensured that Mr. Excitement will continue to waste hundreds of millions of his own fortune on paid advertising that has most likely already taken him as far as it can.

This is now officially The Commie’s race to lose.

 

Here are my updated odds for the ultimate winner of the Democrat nomination:

The Commie – 5 to 4

Mini-Mike – 5 to 1

Quid Pro Joe – 5 to 1

Fauxcahontas – 30 to 1

Preacher Pete – 50 to 1

Klobuchar – 100 to 1

Steyer – infinity to 1

Tulsi Gabbard – is she still running?

Someone not currently in the race – 3 to 1

 

That is all.

The Fake News is Flying Over the Senate Impeachment Trial

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

CBS was the Deep State’s choice to run with the Monday narrative-setting piece. – The Democrat/Media/Deep State pressure campaign on several GOP senator related to the upcoming Senate trial of President Donald Trump continued to mount on Monday. CBS News became the chosen vessel to run with yet another story based on an anonymous “source” designed to pressure not only the Usual Suspects among the Republican caucus, but also to add to their numbers.

From the CBS fake report:

Washington — The White House is preparing for some Republican senators to join Democrats in voting to call witnesses in President Trump’s impeachment trial, which could get underway in the coming days.

Senior White House officials tell CBS News they increasingly believe that at least four Republicans, and likely more, will vote to call witnesses. In addition to Senators Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Susan Collins of Maine, Mitt Romney of Utah and possibly Cory Gardner of Colorado, the White House also views Rand Paul of Kentucky as a “wild card” and Senator Lamar Alexander of Tennessee as an “institutionalist” who might vote to call witnesses, as one official put it.

Last week, Collins said she was working with a “fairly small group” of GOP senators to allow new testimony, adding that her colleagues “should be completely open to calling witnesses.” Romney has expressed an interest in hearing from former national security adviser John Bolton, who has said he would testify under subpoena. Murkowski said last week that the Senate should proceed as it did during the 1999 Clinton impeachment trial.

Note the story leads by naming the Usual Suspects who everyone knows are the most likely RINOs to go off the rails on any issue: Mitt Romney, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski, the three who can most often be relied upon to go squishy whenever the going gets tough. But the media knows that they need to pressure at least one more Republican squish to side with their Democrat buddies in order to get anything done, so now they are moving to add to the list. In fact, they may even need more than four GOP traitors, since Democrats Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Doug Jones of Alabama would both pay dearly back at home for supporting this impeachment scam.

So, first Republican name up? Cory Gardner of Colorado, who is facing a tough re-election campaign against former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper. Oh, hey, and it’s purely a coincidence that, on the day on which this unsourced CBS story is published, Gardner suddenly gets attacked by a group led by Kellyanne Conway’s piggish husband George:

A group run by anti-Trump conservatives has released an advertisement targeting one of the most vulnerable Republican senators, Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner.

Gardner, 45, has one of the toughest reelection campaigns in the nation as the centrist Republican attempts to maintain his seat with President Trump on the ballot next to him. Trump lost Colorado in 2016 by 4.9%, and the Cook Political Report listed Gardner’s seat as a toss-up.

The Lincoln Project, a group led by George Conway, the husband of Trump’s counselor Kellyanne Conway, Steve Schmidt, John Weaver, and Rick Wilson, targeted Gardner for siding with Trump on several issues. The advertisement opens with the question, “Why are you losing?” and proceeds to blame Gardner’s tight reelection race on his relationship with Trump.

Now, Conway’s group doesn’t have much of a budget to pay for running the ad, but boy is it getting tons of free play in the corrupt news media. Funny how that happens.

Next up on the list of potential GOP turncoats is Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, who we just saw last week tossing a hissy fit with his libertarian buddy, Utah Senator Mike Lee, coming out a White House briefing on the situation with Iran. Oddly, the CBS article does not mention Sen. Lee as another potential Democrat ally. Frankly, I think he’s more likely to go rogue than Sen. Paul.

Finally, CBS goes after Lamar Alexander of Tennessee because he’s supposedly an “institutionalist,” whatever that means in the demented minds of corrupt reporters and editors. Honestly, that’s probably because the corrupt media always goes after Sen. Alexander in situations like this. They did the same thing during the Democrat fiasco over the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, and failed. I honestly don’t see Sen. Alexander as a problem here.

And think about this where Alexander the “institutionalist” is concerned: No one in the history of the U.S. Senate was more of an “institutionalist” than the current Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell. Funny, we don’t see any corrupt media articles speculating about Cocaine Mitch, do we?

So, at the end of the day, what we have here is yet another narrative-setting piece for the Deep State. It’s a fake report based on zero named “sources,” and most likely no real source with any knowledge of the situation at all. The only “facts” on which it is based are a couple of off-hand comments made by Collins and Murkowski to local reporters in their home states. The one statement – by Collins – that is recounted by CBS could mean nothing more than that she ran into Senators Murkowski and Paul in the Hallway of Hart Senate Office Building and chatted with them for a couple of minutes about whether or not they wanted to hear testimony from Hunter Biden about the various illegitimate children he has fathered in several different states.

Here is what we do know: 

  1. Mitch McConnell completely rolled Nancy Pelosi in the political gamesmanship leading up to this trial;
  2. Lacking any leverage whatsoever, Pelosi will transmit the articles of impeachment over to the Senate in the coming days;
  3. McConnell has the 51 votes he needs to proceed with the trial using the same Senate rules that were employed during the trial of Bill Clinton;
  4. Pelosi’s house managers – most likely Adam Schiff and Jabba the Nadler, which will be a hoot – will present the Democrats’ sham case;
  5. After that part of the trial has been completed, then and only then will there potentially be a vote to call witnesses who did not testify during the House’s Soviet-style hearings;
  6. Nobody – not CBS, the senators or anyone else – knows how any of these Republican senators will vote when that time comes.

So, get used to this kind of sham story from the corrupt media. With the Senate trial set to begin early next week, the pressure campaign on these and possibly additional GOP senators will only continue to mount. It’s going to be like the Kavanaugh fiasco all over again: The hit pieces will only become increasingly shrill as the Democrats become increasingly desperate as they see their impeachment scam failing to change minds.

Yes, it’s all despicable. Yes, it’s demented, and depraved, and disgusting. But hey, this is Democrats and their corrupt media toadies we’re talking about here – you expected something else?

That is all.

CBS Attempt to Fire ABC’s Whistleblower Goes Terribly Wrong

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

What can you even say about these corrupt media organizations at this point? –  Or perhaps we should quote Hillary Clinton and ask, “At this point, what difference does it make?”

Well, if you are a former producer for ABC, and as of Thursday, CBS as well named Ashley Bianco, it makes a lot of difference. Ms. Bianco finds herself out looking for a new job today because executives at both fake TV news operations conspired to summarily fire her based on the false accusation that she was the whistleblower who leaked a video of ABC reporter Amy Robach to Project Veritas.

Ms. Robach, who serves as one of the hosts for the ABC fake news program 20/20, was caught on a live mic this summer describing how executives at the network had killed her carefully-sourced and researched story chronicling the exploits of now-dead pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, complete with his connections to Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew, among others. That all took place three years ago, back when the Pantsuit Princess just happened to be the Democrat presidential nominee.

Quite the coincidence there.

The release of that video by Project Veritas led to a witch hunt by executives at both ABC and CBS to find their internal whistleblower and ruin his or her life. Ironically, these same executives at these same two fake news networks have instructed their fake news people to pretend to not know the name of Eric Ciaramella, the fake whistleblower in the Democrats’ fake impeachment scam. Hashtag, hypocrisy.

On Thursday, CBS’s executives fired poor Ms. Bianco based on what they claimed was digital evidence of her having bookmarked the video of Ms. Robach for later viewing. Pretty thin gruel there, but hey, this is the fake news media, where pesky things like truth, evidence and proof are just silly concepts that only folks out in Flyover Country talk about anymore.

On Friday, two major events happened almost simultaneously that put the lie to the contention by CBS and ABC that Ms. Bianco is the hero who leaked the tape:

First, Megyn Kelly released a video of an interview she had conducted with Ms. Bianco on her YouTube Channel. Here’s the clip:

Second, project Veritas released the text of an open letter the actual whistleblower wrote to the public and his fellow employees at ABC, where he remains still employed. Here is the key passage from that letter:

To my fellow man:

I came forward with this information bearing no motives other than to have this information public. I did not and do not seek any personal gain from this information whether it be financial or otherwise and will always decline. When I became aware of this moment, I had the same reaction as many of you did. Anger, confusion and sadness. I care not about petty political quarrels and only hope for the best in all of us.

To my fellow ABC News employees:

I’ve walked the halls experiencing similar feelings we are all having right now. All of you regardless of your own personal differences in one form or another do an outstanding job. I sincerely enjoy working with each and every one of you and will continue to do so throughout our careers.

To those wrongfully accused:

It is terrible that you have been lashed out at by the company. I know some may put the burden of guilt on me, but my conscience is clear. The actions of the company towards you are the result of their own and not anyone else. The public outcry, from coast to coast, of all people, creeds, and political affiliations, is clear. I have not one doubt that there will always be support for you, and you will have prosperous careers. For neither you, nor I, have done anything wrong.

So, the management thugs who hold power at ABC and CBS put an innocent employee out on the streets all as a result of their ongoing zeal to protect a convicted pedophile and his longtime associates and alleged customers.

Folks, it doesn’t get much lower than that.

That is all.

Impeachment’s Incredible Moving Goal Posts

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

The goal posts just keep on moving. – Anytime a major controversy arises that implicates prominent Democrats in wrongdoing, the Democrats and their media toadies employ two favorite tactics. The first is “projection,” accusing the other side of doing exactly what they themselves have been caught doing. You know, like abusing your office by withholding foreign aid to, say, oh, Ukraine until that country’s president fires the prosecutor who is investigating the U.S. Vice President’s son. Something like that.

The other favored tactic is the moving of the goal posts. You can count on this to happen with at least one aspect of the situation on pretty much a daily basis.  Where Joe Biden’s clear quid pro quo with Ukraine is concerned, here is the progression we’ve seen so far:

“Hey, that didn’t happen!”

[Video of Biden bragging about doing it gets wide social media play despite the mainstream media’s best efforts to bury it.]

“Hey, that’s old news!”

[Trump produces campaign ad melding Biden bragging video with other shady Biden interactions with various Ukraine thugs.]

“Ok, ok, Biden did it, but he didn’t do it for ‘personal’ gain!” That’s the latest line from Fredo Cuomo, Fake Jake Tapper and everyone else in the fake media, including Fox’s Chris Wallace on Sunday. That one will fail, too, and we can expect to see another new absurdly false defense of Quid Pro Joe to be floated out today by all the Usual Suspects.

Then there’s the fake “whistleblower” himself. When this all first broke, the line coming from Adam Schiff (who we now know had been coordinating with the “whistleblower” for weeks before the story broke) was that this intrepid, heroic spy embedded by the CIA within the White House for months was heroically confident of his story and would be heroically willing to testify before Schiff’s heroic committee.  Last Tuesday, Bug Eyes even speculated the spy would testify “before the end of the week.”

The news fakers at the New York Times, obviously having gotten the green light from Schiff and Pelosi, went so far as to publish personal details about the CIA plant, details that have allowed some to basically figure out exactly who the guy is. This was clearly done in anticipation of the guy testifying quickly, a stage-setting for the big show.

Then on Thursday, President Trump started saying he’d love for the guy to testify in public and have to face questioning from Republicans on the committee, and Schiff – and probably the fake whistleblower, too – started getting cold feet. When the President later characterized the Intelligence Community operatives who fed the whistleblower all of the second-and-third-hand information contained in his fake complaint as “almost spies,” the Democrat/media propaganda complex saw the chance to shift the goal posts again.

First, the media in unison – they all had the same talking points memo to read from, after all – falsely claimed the President’s “almost spies” remark was about the fake whistleblower rather than the IC operatives who fed him the gossip. Very shortly thereafter, they all began saying in unison – without presenting a shred of actual evidence – that the fake whistleblower who just days before was the brave hero ready to testify in public was now all a-skeered for his life because the bad Orange Man said something nasty about him, even though what the President said wasn’t about him.

Last night on “60 Minutes”, drama queen Scott Pelley went so far as to falsely claim that the fake whistleblower is so a-skeered that “he or she” is now in federal protective custody. The problem there is that the fake whistleblower’s own lawyers say that just isn’t true. But hey, when has truth ever mattered to our fake news media? They have a population to be brainwashed, after all.

In case you’re wondering, what’s really happened here is that the Democrats and IC spies who have choreographed this entire fake pretense for impeachment made one gigantic miscalculation: They obviously never expected the White House to release the transcript of the call with the Ukrainian President. They assumed the White House would do what it has been doing all year in the face of a raft of highly-politicized subpoenas from various House committees: Protect the right of Executive Privilege. Without the transcript being made public, everything would have devolved into a classic “he said, she said” dispute.

The fact is the release of that transcript is a completely unprecedented act. It has never been done before. The President, faced with shrill demands from the Democrat/media complex to “come clean,” called their bluff and came clean. That was not part of the Democrat/IC script for this whole impeachment deal.

The problem, of course, is that the transcript of the call does not support in any way the claims made by the fake whistleblower in his complaint. The Democrat/media complex started down the road to claiming the transcript had been falsified over the weekend, but then we learned that the same IC spies who fed the fake whistleblower all the gossip also participate in the creation of these transcripts. So if you’re claiming the transcript is false, you’re accusing your own co-conspirators.

So, they next went to claiming the fact that the transcript had been stored on a super-secure server was proof of a coverup! Oops. Turns out that has been standard operating procedure for all transcripts of presidential calls with foreign leaders for more than two years now.

Thus, today the goal posts will be moved again. The Democrat/media talking points monkeys are no doubt working on today’s memo as this is being written. No idea what the newest narrative will be, but we can be certain it will be as false as all of its predecessors.

Because that is who these people are, and it is what they do. Every. Damn. Day.

That is all.

Michael Bennet: The Next Media-fed Democrat “Rising Star”?

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

[Editor’s Note: The Campaign Update will be silent from July 11 through July 23 because Dave needs some down time.]

Some interesting tidbits in the news this morning. Consider this:

“Americans demand climate action (as long as it doesn’t cost much),” writes Reuters analyst Valerie Volcovici. “Nearly 70% of Americans, including a majority of Republicans, want the United States to take ‘aggressive’ action to combat climate change — but only a third would support an extra tax of $100 a year to help, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll.”

What do those results tell us? It tells us the vast majority of Americans understand in their hearts that the whole “Climate Change” alarmist industry is a giant scam, which is why they aren’t willing to spend any real money on it. But even many who recognize this will tell a pollster that they are for “aggressive” action to fight the scam because they feel pressured to signal the virtue of loving the “environment.”

Thus, the focused brainwashing campaign engaged in by our fake news media on this subject over the last 20 years or so has been amazingly ineffective, considering the billions of dollars they’ve invested in it. Perhaps that’s explained in part by the rising diversity of viewing options on TV, expansion of the Internet and the death of Democrat propaganda-driven newspapers.

Even the Sunday morning “news” shows are dying. The Washington Times this morning reports that the average audience for programs like “Meet the Press” and “Face the Nation” fell by 8% in 2018 and now attract an average audience of just 2.3 million viewers. The weekday evening newscasts, meanwhile, attract an average audience of just 5.3 million sets of eyes, a fraction of the number who tuned in 30-40 years ago. If nobody’s watching, the brainwashing doesn’t take.

This death of ratings for the broadcast TV networks exacerbates the problems for the Democrat Party in its ongoing efforts to dumb down and brainwash the American public, since any brainwashing campaign requires attention from the subjects. At the same time we see these “news” shows on ABC, NBC and CBS passing away, we are also seeing the ongoing collapse of ratings at CNN and MSNBC, a collapse that has only accelerated since the issuance of the Mueller report exonerating President Trump.

A new Democrat “rising star” on the horizon? Remember the name “Michael Bennet,” because I suspect he’s about to become the next media darling “rising star” in the Democrat race. The senator from Colorado was on Fox News Sunday yesterday, another of the low-rated Sunday shows whose audience is collapsing as host Chris Wallace tilts further and further to the political left.

Watching the interview, I was struck by what an accomplished and convincing liar Bennet is. He brought back memories of Bob Kerrey’s famous quote that “Bill Clinton is an unusually good liar.” Bennet has that same ability to tell bald-faced lies and convince you he really believes his own BS, a trait also possessed by Pete Buttigieg. Remember, I told you way back in March that Mayor Pete was probably going to have his own “rising star” moment after a similar interview on Fox News Sunday.

But Mayor Pete’s star is now fading after his lost weekend back in South Bend a couple of weeks back, so the Democrat toadies in the fake news media will be looking for a new date. The pickings are getting pretty slim at this point, so they will be looking around for someone who does well on TV, someone who is articulate, and someone who toes the leftist, SJW party line that attracts clicks and retweets.

The other guy to watch right now is Julian Castro, who, in addition to being a very convincing liar (though not quite as convincing as Bennet) also happens to be an actual minority, so he checks off the identity politics box that is so appealing to shallow Democrats. But the media has been trying to give Castro a boost for weeks now with gobs of free air time, and it just hasn’t been taking for whatever reason.

The other reason to think Bennet may be about to have a little boomlet is fundraising. In the second quarter, Bennet led all of the second tier candidates, raising $2.8 million from April through June. Castro bragged about a surge in his own fundraising following the debate, but has refused to release actual 2nd quarter numbers thus far, which obviously means he isn’t too proud of them.

So, expect to see Michael Bennet a lot more on your TV screens in the coming few weeks. After all, these fawning fake reporters have to have some Democrat to make goo-goo eyes at and whisper sweet nothings to, and Mayor Pete just isn’t getting it done for them anymore.

That is all.

The Witch Hunt is Dead! Long Live the Witch Hunt!

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

The Witch Hunt is dead! Long live the Witch Hunt! – In case you are wondering why every Democrat from Hawaii to Maine is screaming for Attorney General William Barr to “release the full, unredacted Mueller Report!”, it’s because they know that will never happen.

They know that Mueller’s report – assuming it is a fullsome narrative and not just the listing of indictments, prosecutions and deferrals required by the governing statute – will certainly be chock-full of classified information and other passages that the FBI and intelligence agencies will want to redact under their handy “sources and methods” rubrick.  They also know that AG Barr is an old pro, a guy who is going to play this situation strictly by the book, which likely means he is going to compile his own summary report that fully eliminates such concerns and release that to congress and the public instead.

Thus, their cynical and unfillable demand for the “full, unredacted report” will then be transformed into claims that Barr, the disciple of George H.W. Bush who most of them were praising just a few months ago, is now just a Trump toadie who is engaged in a coverup, claims that the Democrats plan to keep pounding right on through Election Day, 2020.

This claim of coverup will become a major part of the Democrat justification for mounting their own Witch Hunts that will consume most of the time over the next 18 months of at least three House committees:  Judiciary, Intelligence and Oversight. Party leaders feel they have no choice but to keep all of this anti-American nonsense alive in order for one of their array of freaks, miscreants, commies and outright nutjobs to have any chance of defeating President Donald Trump at the ballot box next year.

So, if you are frustrated that the Democrats who have spent the last 20 months guaranteeing us that Gestapo Chief, er, “Special Counsel” Mueller has “got the goods” on the President and several members of his family now refuse to accept Mueller’s finding that there was no “Russia Collusion” or “obstruction of justice” and allow our country to return to some sense of normalcy, well, this is why. Yes, it is demented; yes, it is depraved; yes, it is utterly despicable and un-American behavior, but hey, this is the Democrats we are talking about here.

What did you expect?

So, let’s review the Mueller Witch Hunt from a statistical perspective:

  • Money spent – well in excess of $30 million
  • Number of days – 675
  • Number of indictments – 34
  • Number of indictments against Americans – 8
  • Number of indictments against Russian ham sandwiches Mueller knows will never come to this country to stand trial – 25
  • Number of indictments against Concorde Management, whose trial Mueller continues to desperately postpone because he has a big bag of nothing against them – 1

MOST IMPORTANTLY…

  • Number of indictments related to “Collusion” or “Obstruction” – ZERO, ZIP, ZILCH, NADA

And what of our fake news media, this collection of propagandists for the Democrat Party who spent 20 months coordinating their messaging with the DNC on this matter, promoting the “Russia Collusion” fantasy like Nabisco promotes Vanilla Wafers?

In case you missed it, MSNBC’s resident conspiracy theorist, Rachel Maddow, was so upset by Mueller’s “no collusion” conclusion that she literally wept on national television last night:

Isn’t that glorious?

You can be sure that there was plenty of weeping going on behind the scenes over at CNN and the New York Times and the Washington Post and ABC, NBC, CBS as well, as all the fake-newsers saw their vaunted Ship of Mueller run aground on the sharp shoals of reality. But will there be any accountability for these people, even the slightest, meekest admissions of their abject, overwhelming wrong-ness for the last 20 months?

Oh, hell no. Of course not. Nobody at any of our major media organizations maintains the slightest concern about getting anything right anymore – they just care about getting Trump. So all we will see out of these despicable hacks – the ones who don’t break down in tears on live TV, anyway – will be a change in talking points to make it seem like they had predicted this outcome from Mueller’s operation all along, and that the “real action” is over in congress and the Southern District of New York U.S. Attorney’s office.

And remember: The reason they will do this is because… wait for it…THAT’S WHAT THEIR DEMOCRAT MASTERS TELL THEM TO DO.

Once you realize and accept that, it all makes perfect sense.

That is all.

It Was a Bad, Bad Night for Democrat Women

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

Liz Cheney for the Win!: – GOP Congresswoman Liz Cheney of Wyoming properly summed up the behavior of the white-and-blue-clad Democrat women at last night’s State of the Union message with a single devastating tweet:

“Things my Democrat women colleagues wouldn’t clap for at tonight: America, freedom, free enterprise, law enforcement heroes, record low unemployment for women & minorities, the right of babies to live. Things they did clap for: themselves.”

During the hour and twenty-one minutes it took to deliver the speech, President Donald Trump was interrupted by standing ovations 104 times, according to Fox News’s count. Probably 90 of those were Republicans-only affairs, joined only by a few straggling Red State Democrats who stood only when they had prior permission from Chuck Schumer or San Fran Nan.

It is stunning that the Democrat women couldn’t bring themselves to applaud the record low unemployment for women the Trump economy has delivered over the last two years. They did manage to stand and cheer when the President mentioned the fact that 58% of the new jobs created the past two years had been filled by women – but the cheering was ironic in nature (as Democrat cheering for American greatness always seems to be these days), a celebration of the victories by a couple of dozen freshmen Democrat women last November, at least half of which were achieved by outright voter fraud.

As if to emphasize that last point, the Dems then rolled out Stacey Abrams, the failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate who benefited from massive voter fraud in her losing effort, to deliver their paint-by-the-numbers response to the President’s speech. Like every other such response delivered by a Democrat, if you removed the true passages from the text, the speech would remain 98% intact. In fact, if you overlaid Abrams’ recital over that delivered last year by an amazingly hoarse Joe Kennedy, they would almost be identical. The Democrat messages of envy-based socialism and environmental alarmism never seem to evolve.

They just keep doubling down on the lies and brainwashing, which coincidentally is also what the Nazis did in Germany back in the 1930s.

Irony was everywhere last night. – Hey, I wonder if Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and her fellow raging anti-semites Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar were comfortable with the fact that their white-on-blue attire just happened to reflect the colors of the flag of … wait for it…ISRAEL.

Ooops.

Irony was everywhere last night, Part II. – This photo is perfect and really needs no explanation in light of recent events:

 

Man, the #Fakenews outlets have a big job of turning public opinion around today… – Viewer reaction polls taken in the wake of the speech by CBS News and CNN showed that viewers approved of the President’s message by 76% and 59%, respectively. You can bet the DNC/fake news media joint talking points monkeys had a sleepless night last night.

Like Morning Mika once said, telling people what to think isn’t President Trump’s job, it’s the fake news media’s job.

Fauxcahontas Update! – If you thought Senator Little Mouth Always Running had weathered her Fake Indian storm and lived to tell about it, think again.

Below is her application to be admitted to the State Bar of Texas, which she filed in 1986, claiming her “race” to be “American Indian.” This little bit of fraud was tweeted out by Washington Post reporter Amy Gardner about an hour and a half before the President began his speech last night. No wonder our fake Indian princess had such a concerned look on her face throughout the evening:

Oof.

The most amazing part of this is that the Washington Post actually released this latest piece of Warren fraud rather than sitting on it like they normally do for their favored Democrats. This can only mean that the Democrat Party/Fake news media Axis of Disinformation has decided that Fauxcahontas is a sure loser in 2020 and wants her gone.

While that’s a noble goal, the problem for the American people is she’ll just be replaced by some other outright fraud like Kamala Harris or Irish Bob O’Rourke.

But hey, this is the Democrats we’re talking about here, so of course that will be the case.

That is all.
