Monday News Roundup: CHAZ Demands, Stelter Pounded, and Truth From the Least Expected Place

SHOCK: Berkeley professor tells the flat-out truth about George Floyd and the riots. – This was referred to me by a friend on Sunday. It’s something you really don’t expect to see, unvarnished truth coming from a professor on the campus of UC Berkeley in a letter to his colleagues. Here’s a short excerpt from it:

I am one of your colleagues at the University of California, Berkeley. I have met you both personally but do not know you closely, and am contacting you anonymously, with apologies. I am worried that writing this email publicly might lead to me losing my job, and likely all future jobs in my field.

In your recent departmental emails you mentioned our pledge to diversity, but I am increasingly alarmed by the absence of diversity of opinion on the topic of the recent protests and our community response to them. In the extended links and resources you provided, I could not find a single instance of substantial counter-argument or alternative narrative to explain the under-representation of black individuals in academia or their over-representation in the criminal justice system. The explanation provided in your documentation, to the near exclusion of all others, is univariate: the problems of the black community are caused by whites, or, when whites are not physically present, by the infiltration of white supremacy and white systemic racism into American brains, souls, and institutions.

Many cogent objections to this thesis have been raised by sober voices, including from within the black community itself, such as Thomas Sowell and Wilfred Reilly. These people are not racists or ‘Uncle Toms’. They are intelligent scholars who reject a narrative that strips black people of agency and systematically externalizes the problems of the black community onto outsiders. Their view is entirely absent from the departmental and UCB-wide communiques.

The claim that the difficulties that the black community faces are entirely causally explained by exogenous factors in the form of white systemic racism, white supremacy, and other forms of white discrimination remains a problematic hypothesis that should be vigorously challenged by historians. Instead, it is being treated as an axiomatic and actionable truth without serious consideration of its profound flaws, or its worrying implication of total black impotence. This hypothesis is transforming our institution and our culture, without any space for dissent outside of a tightly policed, narrow discourse.

[End]

You can and should go read the rest of it at this link. You’ll be better educated for doing so.

Speaking of George Floyd… – The “peaceful protesters” were back out on the streets of New York City on Sunday.:

With “peaceful protesters” like these, who needs Antifa?

Here is a Trump advisor who needs more airtime. – Watch as Trump Campaign legal advisor Jenna Ellis puts CNN’s resident news-faking eunuch Brian Stelter in his place:

The truth hurts, especially when it occasionally shows up on CNN.

Speaking of news-faking eunuchs… – Fox News’s own resident news-faking eunuch, Chris Wallace, took a moment off from hawking his latest ghost-written book to say this on the same subject:

“You see some reporters now who have become advocates — I see it in the press briefings now. You know, I was pretty tough in the press briefings with Ronald Reagan and his press secretaries in the 80s, but we were basically trying to get information. Some of the press briefings now I see the White House press corps — it’s supposed to be one of the top jobs in journalism — it’s more playing gotcha or more just trying to get in arguments and advance their point of view. That’s not what we’re supposed to be doing.”

“I think too many reporters have fallen into the role of being advocates and, frankly with this president, anti-Trump advocates,” Wallace continued, saying that journalists need to be able to stay “neutral” and “call balls and strikes.”

[End]

Of course, he preceded that by parroting Stelter’s complaint that the President’s “attacks” on corrupt media outlets are somehow “outrageous.” Because, in his heart, Chris Wallace is no different from his muck-raking Marxist daddy.

Well, except for New York City, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, Austin, Chicago and every other Democrat-run city in America. – House majority whip James Clyburn actually said that “nobody is going to defund the police” in an interview over the weekend.

On the very same day, the New York Times ran an op/ed penned by a Democrat activist titled “Yes, We Mean Literally Abolish the Police.” Just so that no one thinks that the headline might not reflect the piece’s content, here are the first three paragraphs:

Congressional Democrats want to make it easier to identify and prosecute police misconduct; Joe Biden wants to give police departments $300 million. But efforts to solve police violence through liberal reforms like these have failed for nearly a century.

Enough. We can’t reform the police. The only way to diminish police violence is to reduce contact between the public and the police.

There is not a single era in United States history in which the police were not a force of violence against black people. Policing in the South emerged from the slave patrols in the 1700 and 1800s that caught and returned runaway slaves. In the North, the first municipal police departments in the mid-1800s helped quash labor strikes and riots against the rich. Everywhere, they have suppressed marginalized populations to protect the status quo.

[End]

D’oh! Somebody forgot to send the DNC talking points memo to the New York Times.

How about we just declare everyone participating in the CHAZ to be an illegal alien and deport them instead? – This is rich: The Antifa morons occupying Seattle’s Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone demanded on Sunday that the U.S. immediately provide amnesty to the 20 million+ illegal aliens currently in the country. As reported by Breitbart:

Officials for CHAZ also said illegal aliens must be called “undocumented” because “no person is illegal.” The demands include:

We demand that the funding previously used for Seattle Police be redirected into:

A) Socialized Health and Medicine for the City of Seattle.

B) Free public housing, because housing is a right, not a privilege.

C) Public education, to decrease the average class size in city schools and increase teacher salary.

D) Naturalization services for immigrants to the United States living here undocumented. (We demand they be called “undocumented” because no person is illegal.)

E) General community development. Parks, etc.

So, here we have a bunch of people who are literally claiming to have invented their own separate and autonomous country by illegally occupying six square blocks in downtown Seattle, sending out a list of demands to the U.S. government. Seems like the proper approach here would be for the federal government to recognize the CHAZites’ separate, non-U.S. citizenship and deport them to someplace like Venezuela where they would feel more at home and no doubt be treated as they deserve to be treated by the authorities there.

You seriously could never make this stuff up.

That is all.

Monday News Roundup: Democrats Crack, Trump Doubles Down, McEnany Blasted by Hacks

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

Is the Democrat governor dam cracking? – Minnesota Governor Tim Walz, a true doofus who has kept his entire state on lockdown despite seeing fewer than 100 Wuhan Virus deaths that did not occur among nursing home residents, seems to be beginning to see the light.

Two days after President Donald Trump threatened to begin withholding federal funds from states that continue to discriminate against places of worship, Walz announced on Sunday that churches in his state would be able to reopen at 25% capacity beginning Tuesday. The Governor had been under heavy pressure from Catholic and Lutheran leaders, who informed him in a letter they planned to reopen Tuesday regardless of any orders he chose to leave in place.

Here’s an excerpt as reported in the Daily Caller:

Walz had previously announced that restaurants, bars, and certain small businesses would be allowed to open at 50% capacity on June 1, but this order did not afford the same relaxation of restrictions to churches and instead limited church serves to 10 people.

Minnesota Catholic and Lutheran churches responded to Walz’s order in a Wednesday letter in which Archbishop of Saint Paul and Minneapolis, Reverend Bernard A. Hebda, told Walz that public masses in Minnesota would resume May 26.

“It concerns us, however, that we still are without a clear roadmap, metrics, or definite timeline from your administration about a phased re-opening,” the letter told Walz. “Executive Order 20-56, moreover, seems to have taken a step backward, imposing an explicit prohibition on faith-based gatherings where none had existed.”

“Your willingness, at the same time, to allow a ‘click forward’ for other sectors and activities on your dial –many of which cannot be classified as essential as the life of faith, prompts us to consider it necessary to move forward. We certainly remain ready to work with your administration as events unfold and circumstances change.”

[End]

Thus, Walz relented under pressure. This could be the start of a trend.

Nevada’s doofus Governor, Steve Sisolak, also finds himself under increasing pressure. One reason why is the data, which increasingly reveals that the man’s ongoing shutdown orders have no basis in science or reason. Check this out:

Image

Sisolak and his medical advisors repeatedly warned that the state would probably see a significant increase in hospitalizations and new cases once restaurants were allowed to start reopening at low capacity on May 9. Instead, the number of new hospitalizations per day in Clark County have dropped steadily to zero.

With his senseless, draconian shutdown orders threatening to destroy his state’s gaming industry, most now expect Sisolak to announce on Tuesday that he will allow casinos to reopen at 25% capacity beginning on June 4. We’ll see.

One thing is for sure: As the data increasingly demonstrates that every prediction they’ve made about this virus is false, the cracks in the Democrat dam of obstruction are growing. The crowded beaches, lakes and shopping centers we have seen all over the country on this long weekend show that most Americans are already over this unprecedented and nonsensical approach to virus control and ready to resume living their lives.

Holdout Democrat brutes like Gretchen Whitmer, Kate Brown, Tom Wolf, Gavin Newsom and Andrew Cuomo will ultimately be faced with a choice of relenting or seeing their citizens force the issue en mass. Because this is still America, even in the blue states, whether they like it or not.

It all comes down to Ratcliffe, Barr and Durham. – President Trump gave a wide-ranging interview to Sinclair New’s Sharyl Atkisson, host of ”The Full Measure.” Among many other topics, Mr. Trump probably put the final nail into the coffin of the flagging campaign of Jeff Sessions, which is a service to the country.

The interview is very long, and the full transcript can be found at this link. The President made some particularly interesting remarks about Obamagate and his four-year battle with the Deep State. Here are some excerpts from that:

Now what’s happened, but I didn’t know people in Washington and whether it’s Sessions, which was a mistake or Dan Coats was a big mistake, but Sessions was a big one. Coats, he sat there. He didn’t do anything. When you look at what Richard Grenell has done in eight weeks, these people didn’t do anything for two and a half years. They should have been exposing this. So I’m very disappointed in certain people.

I’m fighting the deep state. I’m fighting the swamp. And I said I was doing it. And I’m exposing the swamp. I think if it keeps going the way I’m going, and Ratcliffe is fantastic. If it keeps going the way it’s going, I have a chance to break the deep state. It’s a vicious group of people. It’s very bad for our country.

They never thought I was going to win, and then I won. And then they tried to get me out. That was the insurance policy. She’s going to win, but just in case she doesn’t win we have an insurance policy. And now I beat them on the insurance policy, and now they’re being exposed. Comey is a dirty cop, McCabe, bad guy. These are all bad guys. Lisa Page and Strzok. These are the two lovers, right? And they use public servers. They put it out public, because they didn’t want anybody to see, like spouses, et cetera, to see that they were having an affair. And because they did that, they got caught. Tremendous things have happened. They forged documents. We caught them. They had people that had forged documents.

Now, hopefully Bill Barr is going to do something about it. And you know what? Other things are going to come out too. And a lot of other things are going to come out, but you don’t even need other things. What they’ve done is so corrupt, they’ve tried to take down a duly elected president of the United States, happens to be in this case, me, but we can never allow it to happen again.

[End]

Interesting stuff, and rumors were flying in DC over the weekend that this could be a very interesting week. Let’s hope so.

You can tell the quality of a person by their enemies. – If that old adage is true, then Kayleigh McEnany is obviously a stellar person doing a hell of a job in her role as White House Press Secretary.

On Fox News Sunday, McEnany became the target of corrupt old media hack Chris Wallace and never-was Jonah Goldberg, who in 20 years has yet to write a single memorable word. Wallace clutched his pearls and tut-tutted about McEnany’s regular lecturing of the press corps, saying that “I spent six years in the White House briefing room covering Ronald Reagan. I have to say, I never — and in the years since too — I never saw a White House press secretary act like that. I have to say that if Kayleigh McEnany had told Sam Donaldson and me what questions we should ask, that would not have gone well.”

Of course, what Wallace fails to mention is that, as biased as he was, a Sam Donaldson in his prime would have been all over Obamagate, because he used to be an actual working journalist. Wallace never really was much of a journalist, and probably would have just parroted the Democrat Party narrative, something he’s made an entire career out of doing.

But the capper came when Goldberg, the “Never Trump” surrender monkey who has used the Wuhan Virus outbreak as an excuse to lose his razor blade and gain 30 pounds, called McEnany’s practice of actually fighting back against press hostility as “indefensible and grotesque.” This is completely in keeping with the “Never Trump” credo that good fake conservatives must never fight back, but keep surrendering ground so that they can get invited to all the right DC/New York dinner parties and occasionally appear on the Fox News Sunday panels with Chris Wallace.

People like Goldberg have built good livings out of constantly losing and surrendering. Thus, they despise Trump and anyone who supports him, because those people are upsetting the apple cart on which they have built their entire careers.

These are the worst people in our society, folks, leeches who produce nothing of value. Remember their faces and never forget what they have tried to do to our country.

This is especially important on this Memorial Day, as we remember our fallen heroes who lost their lives fighting to preserve our freedoms. Not a single surrender monkey or societal leech among them.

God Bless America.

Mike Bloomberg is the Wizard of Oz

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

Mike Bloomberg is the illustrative case for the limits of the effectiveness of paid advertising.

Quid Pro Joe Biden is so confident of a victory in South Carolina on Saturday that he just scheduled an appearance on Fox New Sunday with Chris Wallace Sunday morning so he can brag about his first-ever primary victory across his 3 different presidential campaigns.

The Commie, Bernie Sanders, has so much momentum in the race for the nomination that he is now regularly drawing crowds of thousands to his campaign rallies.

Fauxcahontas is running surprisingly strong in a raft of Super Tuesday polls, coming in second to The Commie key states like California and Massachusetts, and a strong third place in Texas.

Meanwhile, Mini-Mike Bloomberg is left sucking wind. After spending more than $400 million of his personal fortune, mostly on paid advertising, Mr. Excitement’s insurgent presidential campaign is foundering with little prospect of recovery.

The little ex-Mayor’s polling numbers have collapsed in the wake of two disastrous debate performances, and with his ubiquitous advertising campaign now having reached point of saturation – and probably even now having moved into the consumer annoyance phase – he has no visible options available to change the trajectory of the race in his favor.

Bloomberg’s money was able to influence Democrat voters to a certain extent, and at one point had even gotten him to the point of leading in polls in Arkansas and Oklahoma. But no amount of advertising can force voters to support a candidate whose stark reality as revealed in those nationally-televised debate did not in any way measure up to the image presented in his ads.

That image was of a man of supreme confidence, energy and competence who could get things done in the face of great adversity. The reality seen in the debates was of a nervous, stammering old man with little energy, a man who had no believable answers when challenged by a life-long fraud like Lieawatha to explain himself.

The image was of a man who could stand up to the evil Trump and blast him in a general election campaign. The reality seen in the debates was a tiny man who couldn’t stand up to the likes of Preacher Pete, The Commie and Amy Klobuchar.

The image was of a compassionate individual who treated women and minorities with equality and respect. The reality seen in the debates and videos of his past statements was of an abusive boss who discriminated against women in the workplace and against minorities while serving as Mayor of the nation’s largest city.

Once the reality of the man had been revealed for all to see, no amount of paid advertising could put that genie back into the bottle.

Mike Bloomberg is the man behind the curtain. He is, at the end of the day, The Wizard of Oz.

Mitt Romney, Looooooser Again

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

Tired of all this WINNING yet? – The S&P 500 closed at a new record high on Wednesday, as the Dow Jones Industrial average surged by 483 points, and the NASDAQ also recorded significant gains. The markets were buoyed by the acquittal of President Donald Trump by the Senate along with positive indications of progress in developing a vaccine for the Coronavirus. The WINNING is glorious.

In other news, Mitt Romney is still a LOOOOOOOOOOOSER. – The junior Senator from Utah finally managed to secure a place in history, albeit alongside fellow American loooooooosers like Benedict Arnold and Aaron Burr, becoming the only Senator in the long history of our nation to vote in favor of removing a president from his own political party.

After telling the execrable Chris Wallace in an interview – that Romney himself requested, think about that – that he would vote ‘yes’ on both articles of impeachment, Romney then went out and delivered a speech, complete with fake tears, on the Senate floor, blaming his idiotic decision on his religion. The gutless hypocrite then tried to have things both ways, actually splitting his vote, voting ‘yes’ on Article 1, but ‘no’ on Article 2.

What a buffoon. What a gutless, mendacious looooooooser this guy is.

Hilariously, within moments after the impeachment trial had finally, blessedly adjourned, the Trump campaign issued an ad that it had already created in anticipation of the Romney betrayal. Check this out:

The ad, of course, was met with much tsk-tsking and pearl clutching from the two dozen nitwits who remain in the #NeverTrump faction of the GOP, to whom Romney remains a looooooooser hero for his actively tanking the 2012 election against Barack Obama His Own Self. But nobody cared, least of all President Trump, who also sent the corrupt media mavens into howls of outrage by tweeting out this gem a little later:

If only he could live that long.

In the end, all the loooooooooser Romney could accomplish was to hand the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies a talking point that will last a day or two. The inept creep is so ineffective at influencing his colleagues that he wasn’t even able to bring fellow RINOs like Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski along with him into the annals of traitorous infamy.

Romney believes he is safe from the voters back home despite his mendacity, since he doesn’t have to face them again until 2024. But voters – especially those of the conservative stripe – tend to have long memories about the special kind of deceit Romney practiced in getting elected to his senate office in 2018. Remember, Romney ran as “an extreme conservative,” and promised voters he would strongly support the President’s goals. Remember, too, that Romney repeatedly sought a high position in the incoming Trump Administration, and made many public statements filled with glowing praise about the President at that time and during his campaign.

But hey, Romney’s probably going to be running for the presidency in 2024 – that’s what this vote was really all about. He’s just positioning himself as the titular leader for an anti-Trump rebellion within the GOP as the Trump second term winds down. That’s another looooooooser of a proposition, but Mitt loves loooooooosing.

Romney bragged to Wallace that he has “voted with the President 80% of the time.” But that percentage would actually place him among the most disloyal members of the senate Republican caucus. Hell, simply voting to confirm all the federal judges and senior political appointees whose confirmations have come before the Senate would get a Republican within range of the 80% mark.

If he was truly voting his “conscience” as a “deeply religious man,” surely Romney must do the same where appointments to the federal judiciary are concerned, right? Yet, of the dozens of appointees to the courts that have been confirmed by the Senate since Romney showed up, his “conscience” has managed not to find a reason to oppose a single one of them.

But those were quiet votes, away from the glare of the lights that accompany the TV cameras. It seems Romney’s religion and “conscience” only manage to engage when they tell him that voting against the President will grab him hour upon hour of favorable coverage from all the corrupt media Democrat toadies who defamed him during his 2012 run and who hate his guts every other day of the year. That’s a special kind of religion and “conscience” Mendacious Mitt has going for him there.

A political party with any pride and backbone would expel Romney today. But we’re talking about the Republicans here.

That is all.

Democrat/Media Soleimani Narrative is an Epic Failure

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

It’s all so predictable and tiresome, but exactly what we should expect from these people. – The Democrats and their corrupt toadies in the nation’s fake news media are pushing a ridiculous narrative in the wake of President Trump’s order to take out Iranian Revolutionary Guard terrorist leader Qassem Soleimani with a drone strike at the Baghdad International Airport. It is a narrative that is doomed to become an epic fail.

The narrative basically goes like this: President Trump should have consulted congressional leaders in advance of taking any action. His failure to do so creates a constitutional crisis and may be a “war crime.” He also must provide a more specific, detailed public explanation for the reasons why he decided Soleimani had to be taken out, including the public revelation of the intelligence information relied upon. The detestable hack Chris Wallace is in fact pushing this very narrative on Fox News Sunday in his interview with Sec. State Mike Pompeo as this piece is being written.

All of which is just another steaming pile of smelly horse manure brought to you by your friends at the Democrat/media/Deep State Axis of Disinformation.

First, on the question of some presidential “obligation” to notify congressional leaders in advance of a drone strike on Islamic terrorists: That all went out the window when the Democrat Party’s leaders clearly began to demonstrate they have a higher loyalty to the terrorist than they do to our country. Let’s all remember this from May, 2018:

Remember? Former Obama Secretary of State John Kerry spent days in Paris meeting with Iranian leaders, advising them on ways to thwart President Trump and his official U.S. foreign policy. And Kerry is far from the only Democrat who has been engaged in this kind of subversive activity during the Trump Administration.

Image

President Trump, in this instance, actually had an obligation to U.S. national security NOT to inform any Democrat in advance of taking this action for the simple fact that he knows without any doubt that no Democrat in Washington can be trusted any longer with U.S. national security secrets. He knows that within 5 minutes of informing a Chuck Schumer or Nancy Pelosi of a pending action, that information would have appeared on CNN or at the New York Times or Washington Post websites.

Yes, presidents in the past – you know, back when Democrat leaders were actually loyal Americans – have traditionally tried to inform congressional leaders of both parties in advance of significant military actions, but there is simply no governing legal authority mandating that he do so. As we noted here a few days ago, Barack Obama his own self authorized hundreds, if not thousands, of drone strikes on terrorist targets during his eight years in office without notifying anyone in congress, and no Democrat ever expressed any concern about it.

For the very same reasons mentioned above, if President Trump’s action was a “war crime,” then what of Obama? What about George W. Bush and Bill Clinton? Sorry, Dems, that cat don’t flush.

Then there this contention about the President having some obligation to offer a more detailed explanation of the reasons behind the strike on Soleimani, including the somewhat stunning contention that he must release the highly-classified intelligence information he relied upon in making his decision. This from the same political party that still refuses to release the transcripts of all of its Soviet-style impeachment witness interrogations, mind you.

The Administration, through Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and the President himself, has already laid out its reasons for taking action in general terms. More specific, detailed information about Soleimani and his myriad terrorist actions over the past few decades can be found in the guest piece published here Sunday morning (Quassem Soleimani, the IRGC, and why the “General” had to die).

Obviously, the President has zero obligation to the Democrats or anyone else to publish highly-classified intelligence information that would without any doubt at all put U.S. or Israeli intelligence sources in severe danger (which may actually be the goal behind these Democrat requests). But Texas Congressman Dan Crenshaw, himself a veteran of several tours in the Middle East as a Navy Seal, may have handled it better than anyone in response to a tweet by the despicable Democrat clown Eric Swalwell:

Oof.

Note that Swalwell also demands that the President inform the public – and thus the Islamic terrorists who run Iran – in advance of his “concrete plan for dealing with its [turning Soleimani into a fine, pink mist] consequences.”

Yeah, that’s just stupid, dude. Not happening.

Bottom line: The Democrat/media/deep state Axis of Disinformation is pushing a stupid, shameful, epic failure of a narrative in the wake of a killing that any American with functioning synapses in their cranium will continue to celebrate.

Losers, all of them.

That is all.

Chris Wallace and Chuck Todd Shame Themselves Protecting the DC Swamp

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

It’s like clockwork, folks, it really is.  – Here is the headline of the September 30 Campaign Update: “Winter is Coming, and More Fake Whistleblowers are Coming With it.”

Fast forward six days to Sunday, and guess what? A second fake whistleblower from the Intelligence Community has “come forward,” i.e., coordinated with Lawfare Alliance attorneys, the staff of the House Intelligence Committee and its Chairman, Bug-eyed Adam Schiff, to file another false complaint against the President of the United States. Just as we saw in last October’s lynching of Brett Kavanaugh, whenever one accusation has begun to lose its utility in moving public opinion, another comes forward.

If you think this is the last fake whistleblower Schiff and Lawfare have coached up on this dreadfully stupid coup d’etat effort, you are sadly mistaken. If anything, the pace of the complaint filings will speed up over time as their usefulness in brainwashing the public fades with each successive filing. That’s how it happened with Kavanaugh and that’s how it will happen in this latest coup attempt.

The first complaint had a useful life of roughly ten days before the coup plotters decided they needed another one out there to generate more blaring headlines and obnoxious talking head panels on CNN and MSNBC. This one will probably have a useful life of 5-7 days, the next one less than that. There is no real mystery here – the only real question left is whether the Creepy Porn Lawyer will try to bring forward a “witness” of his own in another failed attempt to cash in on the fake controversy, as he did in the Kavanaugh fiasco.

Lindsey Graham summed it all perfectly in a tweet:

Chuck Todd, Chris Wallace and the other useful idiots who host the Sunday morning fake news shows all did their parts to keep the sham going. Todd and Wallace and were especially animated and repugnant in rolling out the talking points of the Deep State coup plotters, which basically amount to ‘corruption of public office is ok if you’re a Democrat,’ and ‘if you declare yourself a candidate for the Democrat presidential nomination, you are immune from investigation.’

Expect the Pantsuit Princess and John Kerry to jump into the race soonest.

Here are clips of both Todd and Wallace going about their jobs as Democrat toadies, if you can stand to watch them:

The President himself responded to the TV networks’ DC Swamp protection racket as he usually does, on Twitter:

Everything the President says in those tweets is absolutely true. The problem, of course is that the truth conflicts with the longstanding traditions of corruption in the DC Swamp. The selling of high office is a tradition as old as Washington, DC itself, and the reason why many people seek to win those offices in the first place. Look at how fabulously wealthy the Clintons, Obamas, Bidens, Pelosis, Gores and so many others in both parties have become while supposedly holding jobs that pay $150k – $400k per year.

If you think those payoffs stop with the officeholders and don’t filter into our national news media as well, you obviously haven’t been watching the Sunday morning #fakenews shows recently. The whole town is your basic mob racket.

Once you understand how the DC Swamp works, everything the corruptors of our nation do makes perfect sense.

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.

Anger Over Impeachment is Best Directed at the Fake News Media

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

Fake news, fake news everywhere. – The newsfakers at the Associated Press have a report out this morning pushing the claim that Attorney General William Barr was “surprised and angry” when he found out that President Trump had mentioned him on his July call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelinsky.

The source for the AP’s fake report? A ” a person familiar with Barr’s thinking,” who “was not authorized to speak about the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.” In other words, there are two possibilities here: 1) an Obama loyalist still embeded in the DOJ who just made it all up, or 2) the AP reporter just made it all up out of whole cloth in order to create a juicy “news” story.

This reliance on a single anonymous “source” is the worst kind of journalistic hackery, and it is what has enabled the Democrats and their deep state army to keep the nation in a state of perpetual uproar for three solid years now. Many are angry right now at Nancy Pelosi for being the despicable power-mad seditionist in charge of the freak show Democrat caucus in the house of representatives, and that anger is fully justified. Many are also angry at Robert Mueller and Rod Rostenstein and James Comey and John Brennan and Peter Strzok and Lisa Page and Andrew McCabe and Bruce and Nellie Ohr and all the other treasonous snakes who participated in the first phase of the Democrats’ neverending coup d’etat, and that anger is also completely rational and justified.

But that anger is misdirected if those are you only targets, or even if they are your main targets. Because the reality we face is that none of this could have taken place without the tireless efforts of the mainstream fake news media to facilitate it every step of the way. Because if these politicians and deep state skunks had even the slightest concern about being subjected to honest efforts by curious, aggressive journalists to police their actions and ask them tough questions – you know, the role the founders of our country envisioned for the press – the utterly laughable “Russia Collusion” narrative would have been decimated the day after it was floated by the Clinton campaign back in 2016.

Instead, they are all free to go and do whatever comes into their evil little minds because the know they will never have to pay any price in the realm of media exposure for saying and doing it. Look at what happened in Austin yesterday, where San Fran Nan appeared on stage. There she was allowed to just spew her carefully-scripted talking points without any fear at all of being asked anything resembling a tough question or pressed by the moderator whenever she said something so completely outrageous – like her contention she’s doing all of this to “protect the constitution” – that it would make an average German Shepherd pup laugh out loud in derision.

The most divisive politician in modern history actually said this unchallenged:

“Let us be prayerful. Let us be solemn. Let us try not to make it further divisive,” she added. “But we cannot ignore our oath of office do defend the Constitution of the United States from all enemies foreign and domestic.”

You seriously could never make this stuff up, folks. The Texas Tribune’s story on the interview naturally puts that quote way up near the top without critical comment.

Pelosi never agrees to make any appearance unless she is confident she will simply be fed a series of softball questions that she could answer without critical scrutiny. Every Democrat in the congress schedules media interviews carefully in the same way, and they have a target-rich environment of media outlets clamoring to perform such trained-monkey interviews. This is also why the DNC refuses to hold a debate hosted by Fox News. They have no concerns that Chris Wallace might ask a difficult question, but hey, they don’t have Bret Baier and Martha MacAllum in their pockets yet, so why take the risk?

Adam Schiff’s completely made-up soliloquy from last Thursday’s House Intelligence Committee hearing is another great example. Although every broadcast network was perfectly willing to interrupt their lucrative daytime program to carry the hearing live, not a single network newscast made any mention of the fact that Schiff’s opening remarks were complete fiction.

The President’s mention of Crowdstrike on that Zelensky call is another prime example of this media refusal to report the truth. As we wrote here last week, that reference is what really has the Democrats  and their media toadies in a panic. It has nothing to do with Joe Biden, who they are perfectly willing to sacrifice at the altar of protecting the deep state.

Four days later, have you seen any mainstream media outlet mention that reference to their readers or viewers? Have you seen any fake journalist attempt to explain to their brainwashed masses what that reference means and why it’s important?

Of course you haven’t. Because if they go down that road, it might raise issues that become impossible for the Democrats to answer. So that gets ignored in favor of publishing pieces and having talking heads on TV who focus on vilifying Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham, who the media and Democrats fear are actually investigating all the stuff James Comey did his best to cover up.

So, yes, be very angry at Pelosi and the Democrat seditious freak show she commands. They deserve your outrage. All of them.

But at the same time, don’t forget to direct your scorn at the fake media establishment that enables them to do what they do. Because the utter lack of an honest media establishment dedicated to holding politicians accountable, regardless of party affiliation, is why the foundations of our society are in the process of crumbling.

That is all.

Why Mayor Pete is More Likely to Become President Than Joe Biden

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

Please note that headline says “Become President,” not “Become the Democrat Nominee in 2020.” – That’s a key distinction here, because Biden still does have a slightly better chance of being the party’s nominee, although even that edge is steadily declining and will continue to do so over the summer.

And this shouldn’t be just a comparison between Buttigieg and Biden. I would submit that Kamala Harris has a better shot at becoming president than Elizabeth Warren, and that even Irish Bob O’Rourke has a better shot at doing so than Cory Booker and everybody has a better chance than The Commie does.

Why? The first reason is simple. Because, as I wrote back on April 5, American voters don’t like electing Washington, DC long-timers to be their president.

Here’s what I wrote in that piece:

… since Biden first came to Washington, the American people have shown a very strong bias against electing “experienced” guys like him to serve in the presidency. Going back to the 1976 election, here is how many years’ experience in Washington DC our past seven presidents had when they got elected:

Jimmy Carter – 0

Ronald Reagan – 0

George H.W. Bush – roughly 20

Bill Clinton – 0

George W. Bush – 0

Barack Obama – 2

Donald Trump – 0

Combined, those seven presidents had about 22 years’ total experience in the DC Swamp, with Bush 41 having almost all of them. Bush 41, as we all remember, was defeated in 1992 by an outsider, Bill Clinton, who got a big assist from an even more authentic outsider, Ross Perot.

Are you seeing a trend here? I am.

Who are the “establishment” candidates in this race? Biden, The Commie, Fauxcahontas, Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand, Amy Klobuchar, Tim Ryan. While Biden, the Commie and Fauxcahontas are currently leading the polls for the nomination, the odds are heavily-stacked against any of these people being our president-elect come November 4, 2020.

Americans don’t want some crotchety old geezer who’s been ensconced in the DC swamp for 30+ years – or even 10 years – to be their national leader. If they did, Robert Dole and Walter Mondale and John Kerry and Al Gore and John McCain would have all served in the nation’s highest office over the past 30 years.

Yes, Harris is a senator, but she’s only been in that office a little over two years, same as Obama circa 2008. Yes, Irish Bob O’Rourke was in congress for 8 years, but he never did anything notable while there so nobody is really aware of his time in DC. Thus, both are viewed by the media and public through that same Obama “outsider” prism.

But back to the Biden/Buttigieg thing: The simple fact of the matter is that Buttigieg is a better, more effective candidate than Biden, and Biden knows it. Biden right now is riding the same wave of party establishment support that Jeb! was riding at this point in 2015. Well all know how that turned out.

Mayor Pete was all over the news yesterday because of the townhall he did on Fox News Sunday night, which was hosted by Chris Wallace. Conservatives complained all day Monday about Wallace’s softball conduct of the interview and the fact that Fox News chose to fill the venue with a pack of Buttigieg supporters, but so what?

The fact is that Buttigieg proved once again that he is an extremely composed and impressive public speaker, far moreso at age 37 than Creepy Sleepy Joe is at age 76. He is also very adept at fielding tough questions, as he proved back in March when Wallace peppered him with much tougher questions on Fox News Sunday. I was so impressed with Mayor Pete’s performance at that time that I tagged him as one of the real “Rising Stars” of this primary season.

Yes, most of what he says and thinks is batsh*t crazy. Yes, most of what he says is outright lies. But Buttigieg is, as one Democrat congressman said of Bill Clinton back in 1993, “an unusually good liar.” He says the crazy stuff he says with the conviction born of a true sociopath, which puts him in company with the last two Democrat presidents.

Contrast that with the likes of Elizabeth Warren and Cory Booker, both of whom are also inveterate liars but who are both unusually bad at it. Come to think of it, Gore and Kerry were also unusually poor liars, as were Dole, Poppy Bush and McCain – it must have something to do with spending too much time in the nation’s capital.

And then there’s Biden, who has been lying about so many things for so long that they just pop right out of his mouth, but only in short, semi-literate bursts in which no sentence is ever completed. Biden’s like a guy with a case of political Tourette’s syndrome. Biden is fond of saying “I’m the guy that passed that [fill-in-the-blank] bill!” only the bills he talks about either don’t exist or were written by someone else. On Sunday, he went even further, claiming he was the guy who started the whole “Climate Change” thing back in 1987. Somewhere, Al Gore – who also didn’t invent this whole “Climate Change” thing but likes to claim he did – is saying “whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?”

But I digress. All the Democrat candidates lie about pretty much everything because they’re all leftwing hacks and that’s the only way leftists can win elections. It’s just a given. Democrat voters love to be lied to, and will generally end up nominating whichever candidate is the most effective liar of the bunch.

The key for Democrat voters in this cycle will be to nominate the best liar who is not a fossilized DC insider if they want to have any real shot at defeating President Trump. Because Americans innately understand that the DC establishment, regardless of party affiliation, is their true mortal enemy.

Many Americans have tired of all the uproar and chaos that they have seen since the election of Donald Trump, and would love for things to calm down after 2020. But are they likely to choose to replace a political outsider like Trump with a long-time establishment insider who will just return things to the status quo they rejected in 2016?

Nope.

That is all.
