McCabe Hiring Consolidates the Spookification of Our News Media

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

Should we change their names to CIANN and MSFBI? – After the news-fakers over at CNN added disgraced serial liar Andrew McCabe to its roster of paid contributors on Friday, the Daily Caller News Foundation notes that CNN and MSNBC now openly and proudly employ no fewer than 15 former employees of the myriad U.S. intelligence agencies.

That’s right: 15. Amazingly enough, America’s national Teenage Drama Queen, James Comey, is not among them. But he and McCabe were out on the CIANN airwaves performing as your basic Abbott and Costello tag team of Clintonian non-denial denial in the wake of the claims being made by Patrick Byrne, the former CEO of Overstock, that their FBI mounted a spying campaign against no fewer than four presidential campaigns during 2015-16.

Comey, when contacted by a CIANN fake reporter, would only give the same sort of cryptic answer that he posts on his Twitter feed: “The FBI doesn’t work that way.” Yet, we know with 100% certainty based on the public record available today that the FBI under James Comey did indeed “work that way” when it came to spying on the Trump campaign, going so far as to run operatives at certain members of the campaign in obvious efforts to entrap them. That is simply unarguable at this point, even without anymore documents being declassified.

The mouthy McCabe, as is his self-destructive habit, was more verbose in his non-denial denials. Check out this passage from the CIANN story:

Former FBI deputy director and CNN contributor Andrew McCabe said he hadn’t heard of Byrne until the former CEO revealed his relationship with Butina.
“His allegation that his potential cooperation with the FBI was somehow discussed at the highest levels certainly never happened when I was there,” McCabe, who held the No. 2 role at the agency beginning in 2016 until his firing in 2018, said Friday on CNN’s “New Day.”
McCabe said it was “certainly possible” that Byrne volunteered information about Butina to the FBI, but disputed the claim that agents would have told Byrne to “engage in a romantic relationship with a suspected Russian intelligence agent.”
“That is simply not the sort of thing that the FBI does,” McCabe said.

Let’s break that down, starting with the last statement, “That is simply not the sort of thing that the FBI does,” which is pretty much exactly what his former partner in cri…er…”boss” Comey said. Would it surprise anyone out there if Comey and McCabe had gotten together on the phone to coordinate messaging in advance of taking any appointments from friendly fake media outfits?

And let’s look at that first statement: “His allegation that his potential cooperation with the FBI was somehow discussed at the highest levels certainly never happened when I was there.” In the context of that very carefully-worded sentence, the phrase “at the highest levels” could mean he is denying that he and Comey, then the two highest officials at the FBI, never got together and discussed this program, which certainly could be true within what Byrne is alleging, given that he is claiming his orders came from Peter Strzok, not Comey or McCabe.

Let’s remember that Strzok did not report directly to either one of these non-denial artists at that time. Thus, it would have been very easy to compartmentalize all internal communications about any domestic espionage operations in order to provide both McCabe and Comey with a sweet level of plausible deniability about the matter.

But “at the highest levels” could also mean that Comey never discussed the spying effort with then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch, or that Lynch never discussed it with then-President Barack Hussein Obama his own self.

In other words, neither Comey nor McCabe actually “denied” any element of Byrne’s story, which is nothing unusual. This is just how they do things in spook-world.

As for the 15 ex-spooks now employed at CNN and MSNBC, you can be sure most of them are still serving as active informants and operatives for the FBI, CIA and various other intelligence agencies. You can also be sure that many other employees at those two cable channels and other big establishment media outlets are also serving in similar roles. These agencies have since their creation always made it a practice to place or recruit media members to serve in such jobs.

Remember, when President Donald Trump forced the release of a raft additional documents related to the JFK assassination in late 2017, we discovered that, as of November 1963, the CIA alone had no fewer than 42 assets placed in the country’s various media outlets. Given the way the number of both media outlets and intelligence agencies have multiplied over the last 56 years, you can be sure the number of spook plants within those outlets has grown apace.

The only aspect of this longstanding infiltration of our news media that has changed is that today, fake media operations like CIANN and MSFBI proudly announce that they are paying gobs of money to these spooks for the privilege of airing their deceptions to the public.

All of which is just one more reason why you should never take anything reported by any establishment media organization at face value. Honestly, it is becoming almost impossible to find anything resembling real news being reported anymore.

The Spookification of our media establishment is pretty much complete.

That is all.

Bombshell: Dan Coats Out, John Ratcliffe In At ODNI

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

This is a big, big deal:

Congressman Ratcliffe can now expect to be demonized by the Democrats and their toadies in the fake news media because, well, that’s what they do. But Ratcliffe, a former U.S. attorney who is in his third term in congress, is well-qualified for the job and any of the 53 Senate Republicans who oppose his nomination will do so at their own political risk.

The departure of Coats, a long-time establishment Republican DC Swamp rat, has long been considered to be crucial to the process of declassification of key documents necessary to get at the truth of what really took place within the Obama DOJ/FBI/CIA/State Department during the runup to the 2016 elections. Coats has long been an impediment to that process, and you can tell the character of a man by looking at who his friends are.

For example, here is what ex-FBI Director and current National Teenage Drama Queen James Comey had to say upon learning of Coats’s “resignation”:

Then there is Democrat Senator Mark Warner of Virginia, who got caught in the fall of 2017 soliciting damaging information from Russians in a recorded phone call, and has spent the last two years doing his best to cover up for Comey, John Brennan, et al:

There will no doubt be much more high praise for Coats from the four murky corners of the DC Swamp today, but you get the picture.

Here is why getting Coats out of his position is so key to declassification: the Office of the Director of National Intelligence has the final say on what documents will and will not be declassified and released for public viewing. Signoff from the DNI is the last step in the process, and the presence of Dan Coats in that job is one of the main reasons why the process has been held up thus far.

The function of the ODNI is to coordinate efforts between the nation’s alphabet soup of intelligence and law enforcement agencies. The directors of all of those various agencies all have the opportunity to object to the declassification of any document that is somehow relevant to their operations. Any director who does so must justify their objection to the DNI. If the DNI agrees with the justification, it then becomes his job to communicate the decision to the President.

Rumors have long circulated that Coats has essentially served as a rubber stamp for the worthless FBI Director Christopher Wray and any other agency director who has wanted to hold up the process.

Thus, the firing of Coats – and make no mistake about it, this was a firing – was essential to the ultimate success of getting the truth out to the public. Wray still remains, but he can now be neutered by an effective and honest DNI.

So, you should expect an absolute war over the nomination of Ratcliffe, because the Democrats and their media toadies are unalterably opposed to the public getting the truth about the Obama-era illegalities. Sadly, you will no doubt see some Senate Republicans take a similar stance. If the Swamp can get to four of them, Ratcliffe’s nomination could be torpedoed.

The good news is that Ratcliffe and the President must have been assured by Mitch McConnell that the votes to confirm him are there; Otherwise, he would not have accepted the nomination.

Let’s hope so. The success of this nomination is vital to the entire process.

That is all.

Barr/Durham Inquiry is Making the CIA Nervous? COOL!

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

If William Barr achieves nothing else in his go-round at DOJ, he has already shown just how important it is for our country to have a real, actual, fully-functioning Attorney General.  That reality was emphasized yet again in the bombshell new report from the New York Times – based solely on anonymous “sources”, of course, because it is the NYTimes, after all – that claims that John Durham’s investigation into the origins of the whole “Spygate” scandal will include interviews with “at least one senior counterintelligence official and a senior C.I.A. analyst.”

Cool! You can feel the sweat breaking out on John Brennan’s forehead even as you read this report. Brennan, after all, was the CIA Director when all the shenanigans were taking place, and we already know as a matter of public record that he was knee-deep in all of it. The Times, of course, does its best to try to create sympathy for CIA personnel by carefully justifying their “work” as attempts to understand “Russian intereference” in the 2016 election, but we all know that’s a myth because Barack Hussein Obama his own self told us so on several occasions. And if reading this following paragraph from the story doesn’t enrage you as an American citizen, then you need to read up on your civics lessons:

“While the Justice Department review is not a criminal inquiry, it has provoked anxiety in the ranks of the C.I.A., according to former officials. Senior agency officials have questioned why the C.I.A.’s analytical work should be subjected to a federal prosecutor’s scrutiny. Attorney General William P. Barr, who is overseeing the review, assigned the United States attorney in Connecticut, John H. Durham, to conduct it.”

Think about what that paragraph actually says in plain English: That “Senior agency officials” the Times claims to have spoken with literally believe they and their “analytical work”, i.e., the assignment of a parade of CIA operatives like Stefan Halper, Joseph Mifsud and others to try to entrap Trump campaign officials in violations of the law, is somehow exempt from scrutiny. In other words, these deep state snakes and skunks really and truly do believe they are simply above the law.

After all, if a federal prosecutor working directly under the supervision of the nation’s highest law enforcement official has no right to investigate their actions, then who in the hell does? Who do these people think they are?

And guess what? The next paragraph should enrage you even more than you already are:

“The Justice Department has not submitted formal written requests to talk to the C.I.A. officers, but law enforcement officials have told intelligence officials that Mr. Durham will seek the interviews, two of the people said. Communications officers for both the C.I.A. and the Justice Department declined to comment.”

Understand what’s happening here yet? Yep, this article is an effort by the news-fakers at the New York Times to help their deep state sources in and around the CIA to try to intimidate Barr and Durham from moving forward by publicly exposing their plans. This is sleazy, despicable and just one more proof point showing why fake news outlets like the Times are in fact the enemies of the American people.

But wait, there’s more, as the late, great Billy Mays used to say. Watch as the current CIA Director, appointed by President Trump, sends a not-so-coded message to her stressed employees and Brennan:

“The C.I.A. director, Gina Haspel, has told senior officials that her agency will cooperate — but will still work to protect critical pieces of intelligence whose disclosure could jeopardize sources, reveal collection methods or disclose information provided by allies, according to current and former American officials.

“Ms. Haspel will not block the interviews and has told the agency that talking with Mr. Durham need not jeopardize secrets and is consistent with cooperating with Mr. Barr’s inquiry.”

Ah, yes, the old “sources and methods” dodge – Haspel here is promising to use it liberally to protect “her people.” Let’s remember that Haspel just happened to be the London station chief for the CIA while Brennan was the agency’s director, and that much of the entrapment efforts during 2016 took place in….wait for it…London!

Oh.

You have to get all the way down to the 10th paragraph of the story – which the Times knows is well past where 90% of its short-attention-span readers will ever bother to tread – to find out what Barr and Durham are really trying to get at in this piece of their investigation:

“Mr. Barr wants to know more about the C.I.A. sources who helped inform its understanding of the details of the Russian interference campaign, an official has said. He also wants to better understand the intelligence that flowed from the C.I.A. to the F.B.I. in the summer of 2016.

“During the final weeks of the Obama administration, the intelligence community released a declassified assessment that concluded that Mr. Putin ordered an influence campaign that “aspired to help” Mr. Trump’s electoral chances by damaging Mrs. Clinton’s. The C.I.A. and the F.B.I. reported they had high confidence in the conclusion. The National Security Agency, which conducts electronic surveillance, had a moderate degree of confidence.”

The “declassified assessment” the Times refers to is the Intelligence Community Assessment that our National Teenage Drama Queen James Comey and others presented to President Trump during the transition following the 2016 election. We now know – Comey has testified to this under oath – that the Drama Queen’s “mission” that day was to inform the incoming President about the existence of the Steele Dossier. Comey and then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper had been trying to get the fake news hacks at CNN to run with the Dossier, but, in a rare display of a modicum of journalistic ethics, had been told by CNN that they would not report on the Dossier unless they knew that Trump had been briefed on it.

All of which is why, as he left that meeting in Trump Tower, Comey then phoned Clapper and delivered the simple message, “Mission Accomplished.” CNN ran with the story that night, and a few months later gave Clapper a big contract as a “contributor.”

So, when you see the Times trying to intimidate Barr and Durham away from looking into the CIA’s role in all of that, you know that the investigation is on the right track.

When CIA officials who worked for John Brennan are so nervous they go looking for cover from their media toadies, that’s good news for all real Americans.

Boom.

That is all.

[Addendum] You don’t have believe me about all of this being part of the public record. A friend reminded me just now of this terrific expose’ by Paul Sperry published at RealClearPolitics in May of last year. Read it to understand why John Brennan has so much cause to be sweating today.

SPOTLIGHT: Another Week of Major Spygate Revelations

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

This past week was the second straight during which multiple major new revelations about “Spygate” – the Obama Administration’s effort to fix the 2016 election and subsequent plot to execute a coup d’etat on a sitting POTUS – came to public light.  You can find last week’s review at this link. Here follows a review of what we learned during the course of this week.

First, Maria Bartiromo interviewed George Papadopoulous – one of the main targets of the FBI/CIA’s entrapment efforts against Trump officials – on her Sunday morning program, along with Devin Nunes. Here’s a clip of the full episode, in which Papadopoulous details multiple efforts by U.S. agencies to entrap him into some criminal act or admission, and in which Nunes details his suspicion that at least one spy deployed by the FBI/CIA also works as an operative for Russian intelligence.:

Next up, Attorney General William Barr acknowledged again his ongoing investigation into the real origins of the Obama spying operations, and how high the conspiracy went within the Obama Administration.:

Later on Wednesday, the reliable news-fakers at the New York Times did their best to set a favorable narrative to Spygate on behalf of the Deep State, but really only succeeded in confirming that it the FBI was spying on the Trump Campaign throughout 2016, using multiple operatives.:

I missed this when it was published on Friday, but National Review obtained a copy of the recent congressional testimony by FBI Deputy Assistant Director of Counterintelligence Jonathan Moffa, and it is extremely revelatory. Moffa’s testimony makes it crystal clear that the FBI was coordinating with the CIA during 2016, and he admits that  their spying operation ran multiple different operatives at Papadopoulous and other Trump Campaign officials in their entrapment efforts.  Amazing.:

It all becomes very convoluted and confusing, because the Obama-era bad actors had so many different angles going on targeting the Trump campaign throughout 2016, and really starting in late 2015. The guys over at the Conservative Treehouse have an outstanding, detailed explanation of how it all played out at this link. 

These two paragraphs from that piece sum up the bifurcated, coordinated effort between the CIA and FBI very succinctly:

The CIA track took place between March and July 2016, and consisted of using foreign intelligence allies in Italy, the U.K and Australia to create a background illusion of Russian involvement with the Trump campaign.  This operation was based on earlier -more innocuous- contacts from various countries, weaponized and redeployed in what everyone calls “spygate”.  This track successfully culminated in Operation Crossfire Hurricane.

The FBI track was domestic-centric, albeit sub-contracted to Fusion GPS and later a former British intelligence officer, and took place between April and October 2016; also to create the illusion of Russian involvement.  This operation is best known around the Steele Dossier and FISA warrant against U.S. person Carter Page.  The FBI track continued with the Mueller investigation into 2017, 2018 and 2019.

Read the whole piece and keep it bookmarked – it will provide a great reference point to go back to as things continue to publicly unfold in the coming weeks and months.

The Media Mounts a Final Desperate Effort to Protect Barack Obama

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

The fake news media is going into overdrive. – Over the last 48 hours, we have now had the three fakest fake news outlets push their toadyism on behalf of the panicking Democrats and Deep State to a new level. On Wednesday night, the New York Times put the deep state spin on the Obama FBI’s spying operations against the Trump Campaign; Thursday night saw the release of CNN’s latest fake poll, a desperate effort to prop up the flagging campaign of Irish Bob O’Rourke; and Friday afternoon, the reliable old Washington Post jumped in with an op/ed from the execrable hack Paul Waldman.

Waldman’s piece is an obvious effort to set the narrative for the deep state as Attorney General William Barr pursues his own investigations into the origins of the Obama FBI/DOJ/CIA spying operations against the Trump Campaign. The goal of this narrative is to smear Barr – who, it is now obvious, is our nation’s first real, functional attorney general concerned about the rule of law in over a decade – in an effort to render any findings he makes as illegitimate, nothing but the work of Donald Trump weaponizing the Department of Justice to go after his opponents.

It is, in other words, the ultimate case of the media/Democrat favorite tactic of Projection: The tactic of accusing your opponents of doing exactly the things you yourself are in fact guilty of having done.

This is the beginning of a desperate effort by the Democrat/media propaganda complex to provide one final layer of cover for the head honcho who actually did deploy the FBI and DOJ and CIA to attack his opponents. It’s an operation designed to protect the guy who oversaw the entire operation and actively guided it – America’s Worst Mistake, Barack Hussein Obama. For those of us who have been paying close attention to all of the information that has come out into the public domain, Obama’s fingerprints have always been all over this illegal spying operation mounted against the opposition party’s presidential campaign.

The spying on the Trump Campaign was mounted as a counterintelligence operation by the FBI, recommended first by CIA Director John Brennan, authorized by FBI Director James Comey and managed by Deputy Chief of the Counterintelligence Division Peter Strzok. As a matter of routine, the President of the United States is given weekly briefings of the FBI’s counterintelligence operations. At the very least, Obama was fully aware of everything that was going on, a reality borne out in myriad text messages between Strzok and his paramour Lisa Page.

All of this and so much more is a matter of public record already – it is not in doubt. The fake news media has done everything it can to keep the public living in blissful ignorance about it all, but more and more Americans become aware every day, and that trend will speed up massively with the release of the pending Horowitz reports and the coming declassification of all of the underlying documents by President Trump, which will also begin to take place in the coming weeks.

So Barr must be smeared – it’s the media’s only remaining shield for Obama His Own Self. And it isn’t just Barr – other key players must and will be smeared as well.

You should expect the Post or the Times to quickly begin mounting a similar smear campaign against DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, since he is supposed to issue his own reports on a) the rampant Obama-era abuse of the FISA process, and b) the leaking habits of ex-FBI Director and current Teen Drama Queen James Comey in the coming weeks. Why? Because all the perceived enemies of the Deep State/Democrat Party must be smeared. Their reputations must be besmirched as a matter of protecting the media’s puppet masters.

What about Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham? You should expect to soon see the media mounting a smear campaign against him as well, since he is promising to use his committee to mount its own investigation into the origins of the spying operation. Graham, a life-long bachelor, has long been the subject of rumors that he is a closeted gay man. Already, we are seeing despicable cretins like Rosie O’Donnell, Alec Baldwin and Chelsea Handler launching gay smears at him via their own Twitter accounts. You should expect to see the Usual Suspect media outlets – The Post, the Times, CNN, MSNBC, etc. – to soon start running stories pushing rumors about Graham, stories they would never even consider running about any Democrat.

Yes, it is despicable. Yes, it is beneath contempt. But hey, this the fake news media and Democrats we’re talking about here. You expected something else?

That is all.

The New York Times Continues Providing Cover for the Deep State

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

Old New York Times Slogan: All the news that’s fit to print.

New New York Times Slogan: All the leaks that support the Deep State Narrative.

This has become so laughably predictable that you can’t even take it seriously anymore. Thursday afternoon, the news fakers at the New York Times published a piece – of course based solely on leaks from some deep state Obama holdover within the FBI – that basically admits that the FBI was doing what William Barr keeps telling us it was doing back in 2016, which was: SPYING on the Trump Campaign, and attempting to entrap its people into the commission of some sort of crime.

That’s what it was. It was a counterintelligence operation run out of the FBI, an operation that had been referred to the FBI and authorized by then-CIA Director John Brennan. Furthermore, it was a counterintelligence operation run by the FBI, and about which then-President of the United States Barack Obama was fully aware, since he was given weekly briefings about all counterintelligence operations run by the FBI.

The New York Times just now seems to be catching up on all of this stuff that we’ve all known about for well over a year now. Funny how that works.

Of course, the reason why this particular fake newspaper is publishing this particular story at this particular time is so that it can put its particular spin on it at the behest of the Obama-leftover skunks and snakes who still infest the FBI and DOJ. The reason why this particular story – about the FBI illegally spying on the presidential campaign of the opposition party and trying to entrap its people on foreign soil – at this particular time is because everyone now knows that a) it has become one of the issues DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz is investigating, and b) the Attorney General himself has let it be known that he also has U.S. attorney staff looking into it.

In other words, the Deep State and its mouth organs in the fake news media, led by the New York Times, are panicking and desperately trying to set and sanitize the public narrative in advance of those investigations. The Times, of course, is very careful not to call the FBI’s activities “spying”, portraying the spying operation as one that “shows the level of alarm inside the F.B.I. during a frantic period when the bureau was trying to determine the scope of Russia’s attempts to disrupt the 2016 election”.

Rrrrrriiiiiigggghhhhht. If the FBI were indeed so “alarmed” about efforts by those nasty ol’ Russians to make contacts with members of the Trump campaign, why didn’t the FBI make an appointment to meet with the candidate himself, along with his senior staff, and warn them about those concerns? This simple action that would have given these U.S. citizens a head’s up was apparently beyond the ken of these intrepid law enforcement heroes; thus, they took Brennan’s advice and mounted a highly complex, secret operation that was clearly designed to entrap unsuspecting members of Trump’s team, like George Papadopoulous, who is the subject of this particular Times cover job for the Deep State.

The particular entrapment op in question on this particular Times piece is an episode in which longtime CIA operative Stefan Halper deployed a honey pot code named (I kid you not) Azra Turk to see if she could get Papadopolous to make any incriminating admissions over drinks at a London bar.

Here’s the narrative the Times/FBI skunks put on this story:

The woman had set up the meeting to discuss foreign policy issues. But she was actually a government investigator posing as a research assistant, according to people familiar with the operation. The F.B.I. sent her to London as part of the counterintelligence inquiry opened that summer to better understand the Trump campaign’s links to Russia.

The American government’s affiliation with the woman, who said her name was Azra Turk, is one previously unreported detail of an operation that has become a political flash point in the face of accusations by President Trump and his allies that American law enforcement and intelligence officials spied on his campaign to undermine his electoral chances. Last year, he called it “Spygate.”

So, this CIA operative working for another CIA operative trying to entrap a U.S. citizen on foreign soil is portrayed as a “government investigator posing as a research assistant.” And don’t you love the spin the writers put on the spying operation, that it “has become a political flash point in the face of accusations by President Trump” that he was – guess what? – being SPIED on.  And yes, he did call it “Spygate” – because he was being SPIED on.

My goodness. How do these people sleep at night, knowing that they are nothing mouthpieces for the worst elements of our society?

Disgusting hacks.

That is all.

The Week in Review: Broward County Circus Clowns Dominate the News

The Campaign Update Week in Review

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

In Broward County, the Circus Big Top never comes down. –  It will no doubt come as a shock to all of you to find out this morning that Democrat Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes and her gang of vote-stealing circus clowns now claim to have “lost” 2,040 ballots during the course of their hand recount on Saturday.

But don’t worry – Ms. Snipes assures us that these ballots did not just get up and walk out of the building, which is oh, so helpful, right?

“The ballots are in the building. The ballots are in the building. Someone must have put a stack in a tray where they didn’t belong. And we didn’t pick that up. So we continue to count… The ballots are in this building. There would be no other place for them to be.”

Oh. Well, then, no harm no foul.  I mean, since it is Democrats we’re talking about here, they must be given special dispensation and held to far lower standards of behavior than normal human beings. We mustn’t “judge” Brenda Snipes because Brenda Snipes is a symbol. Of what, no one has ever quite explained adequately.

But yeah, 2,040 “missing” ballots, which very conveniently gives Democrat Senate candidate Bill Nelson grounds for filing yet anther lawsuit demanding some Florida judge to prolong the circus even further.  Because of course it does.

Oh, and the net result of Broward County’s 2,040-vote short “recount”?  Republican Senate candidate Rick Scott actually gained more than 700 votes.  *sigh*

Let’s go to the Week in Review:

It was the week that MSNBC’s veteran news faker Andrea Mitchell repeatedly told her tiny audience that Brenda Snipes is a Republican, and never did issue an on-air apology for her fakery. Because being a Democrat activist with a press pass means never having to say you’re sorry.

It was the week that Georgia’s Democrat looooooooser in the gubernatorial race, Stacey Abrams, refused to concede her loss to Republican Brian Kemp, claiming she had lost due to “voter suppression” that was racially-motivated.  Her main complaint was a substantial purging of the voter roles that took place under Georgia’s election laws prior to the campaign. She failed to note that Georgia’s current election laws were enacted in the late 1990s by a state legislature dominated by…wait for it…you know what’s coming, don’t you?….sure you do…DEMOCRATS.  Whew.

Ocasio Cortez Watch.:  It was the week that Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, after watching her fellow socialist Irish Bob O’Rourke raise $80 million in mostly non-Texas money in his losing effort to Ted Cruz, was quoted as saying that “All Americans know money in politics is a huge problem, but unfortunately the way that we fix it is by demanding that our incumbents give it up or by running fierce campaigns ourselves.” I don’t really even know what that means, but I swear I did not make it up.  Who could?

It was the week that the CIA produced a report claiming that the murder of radical Islamist reporter Jamal Khashoggi was ordered by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, sent it to President Donald Trump and then leaked it to the New York Times.  Because of course they did.

It was just another week in which no American outside of our fake news media cared who ordered the killing of Jamal Khashoggi.

It was the week that portions of the fake “migrant caravan” began arriving at the border between Texas and Mexico, and officials in Tijuana loudly complained about the migrants’ presence in their community. Heads exploded all over CNN headquarters as fake journalists engaged in a frenzied search for a way of characterizing these Mexican officials as “racists.”

It was the week that French boy President Emmanuel Macron lectured President Trump and America on the evils of “nationalism,” and his public approval rating fell to 25%. There is a lesson in there somewhere, but don’t expect Macron to grasp it.

It was the week that “miniature kidneys” grown by mad scientists in a lab in St. Louis “went rogue”, suddenly sprouting brain and muscle cells, according to officials at the Washington University School of Medicine. No word if the lab director’s last name is Frankenstein, but it seems likely.

It was the week that California Democrat congressman Eric Swalwell announced his support for legislation that would force gun owners to give up any weapon the government classified as an “assault weapon,” and then let it be known that he’d be willing to have the government use nuclear weapons to enforce his desire to disarm the public.  So, just another typical liberal there.

Finally, it was the week that a federal judge issued an injunction ordering the White House to temporarily restore the press badge for CNN performance artist Jim Acosta. In preparation for Acosta’s return, the White House made some minor renovations to the White House Briefing Room:

That isn’t really a thing, but it should be.

That is all.

Note: A Conspiracy That is Slapping You in Your Stupid Face is not a “Theory”

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Take that, CNN and NBC!  – ABC News, desperate to gain its footing in the race to produce the fakest of all the fake news in the #fakenews universe, decided to just chuck it all on Wednesday and run news so fake that even some at CNN were embarrassed by it.  In the middle of the networks fake coverage of a real meeting at the White House, ABC’s chyron ran a blaring note claiming “Manafort Pleads Guilty to 5 Charges of Manslaughter”.

Obviously, Paul Manafort did not plead guilty to manslaughter or anything else for that matter, and so the obviously intentionally faked-up chyron message created a bit of a stir. ABC and its apologists – like Josh Feldman at Mediaite, tried to laugh it all off as a “malfunction” or a “glitch,” but it was obviously neither of those.  It’s hard to understand why ABC News thinks pulling such a stunt does it any good, other than gaining some temporary attention its fading newscasts are no longer able to garner, but pull the stunt they did.  Weird.

From our ICYMI File… – In case you missed the news on Tuesday, Starbucks announced it will be closing 150 of its corporate-owned stores across the country this year, most of them in “densely populated metro areas.”  This announcement comes bare weeks after the company announced its idiotic policy allowing anyone, anyone at all, to come in and hang out in their stores and use the restrooms regardless of whether they buy anything or not.

Oh, hey, guess where the homeless and vagrants and drug addicts tend to hang out in most of our large cities?  Would that be in “densely populated metro areas?”  Cause, meet effect.

Hey, it’s not a conspiracy “theory” when the conspiracy is standing there slapping you in your idiotic face. – Liberals who are not capable of making a cogent argument (that would be all liberals) have grown fond of labeling anyone who notes the reality that there was an anti-Trump cabal working within the DOJ and FBI throughout 2016 to fix the election and well into 2017 to attempt to hinder the duly-elected President of the United States as “conspiracy theorists.”

The term “conspiracy theory” did not even really exist in the American lexicon until the early 1950s, when then-CIA Director Allen Dulles began using it to demean anyone who alleged that the CIA had played a role in several coup d’etats in various third world countries.  Of course, those allegations were absolutely true, but the CIA’s many embeds in the national news media at the time were more than happy to deploy the tactic at Dulles’ bidding, and the tactic came in very handy following the assassination of John F. Kennedy as well. Documents related to that assassination released last fall 54 years after the fact reveal that, in November 1963, the CIA admitted to having more than 40 such media embeds working for it.

That was, of course, at a time in which our “national news media” consisted basically of ABC, CBS, NBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Associated Press and United Press International.  Throw in Time, Life, Newsweek and U.S. News and World Report, and you’ve pretty much captured it all.

Now, fast forward 55 years, to 2018, and our exponentially-expanded media universe.  Then, recognize the enormous expansion of the number and size of the federal government’s intelligence agencies, including the counter-intelligence division of the FBI, where FBI Super Duper Agent and Aspiring Latin Lover Peter Strzok presided throughout the years in question, and played the lead role in basically every questionable investigation.

If the CIA alone had more than 40 operatives embedded in a media establishment that in 1963 essentially consisted of 11 major news outlets, think of how many such embeds our 18 or so intelligence agencies have active in such a vastly expanded fake news media universe.  The thought is literally breathtaking.

Given that likely reality, the fake news media’s coverage – or lack thereof – of the obvious massive conspiracy that was germinated at the highest levels of the Obama Administration (note that the “highest level” of any administration is the President himself), that we now know was formally authorized by John Brennan at the CIA, and was coordinated by the cabal within the DOJ and FBI not only comes as no surprise, it is exactly what one would expect from a compromised media establishment.  (Man, is that a great run-on sentence, or what?)

Indeed, one of the most fascinating findings of the report on the Clinton email scandal by DOJ IG Michael Horowitz was the careful documentation of more than 300 outright bribes made to a multitude of FBI personnel by fake news media outlets.  The IG report includes a great graphic which describes the incestuous bribe/influence network that existed between the FBI and various fake news media outlets throughout the faked-up Clinton probe.

And hey, it’s been just a little over a week since we discovered that a reporter for the New York Times was literally sleeping with a senior staffer for the utterly corrupt Senate Intelligence Committee so she could obtain classified information illegally.

So yes, there was a conspiracy, and there is no doubt about it.  Even worse, it is very likely that, between Rod Rosenstein, Robert Mueller and his gang of thugs, the anti-Trump conspiracy remains ongoing, though probably not for a whole lot longer.

Even worse than that for the health of our country, the fake news media are not innocent bystanders merely engaging in biased reporting on this conspiracy, they’ve been active participants in it and are still doing their best to cover it all up.

Now that, friends, is a conspiracy.

Just another day in it’s all going to come out in the end America.

That is all.

Grassley Schedules Hearing; Horowitz Report About to Drop

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This was inevitable. – Roseanne Barr self-destructed on Tuesday, sending out a racist tweet targeting Barack Obama’s loathsome toady Valerie Jarrett, which resulted in her show being cancelled by the end of the day by Disney’s CEO Bob Iger.  Some of you have inquired over the last several weeks about why I haven’t said much of anything about the great success of Roseanne’s TV show revival, in which her character is a fan of President Trump.  Now you know.

Look, I never cared for Roseanne Barr to begin with and pretty much never watched her show when it was in its first run.  I found her to be personally repugnant, none of the characters on the show to be especially appealing or sympathetic, and the show itself to be inappropriate for the kids.  Why would things be any different 25 years later?

Plus, Roseanne herself is crazy, and some episode in which she personally imploded was frankly inevitable.  No one should ever hang their hat on some nutty celebrity – the same goes for Kanye West, who has been famously complimentary of the President in recent weeks as well.  He’s also a nut, and a personal implosion is pretty much inevitably in his future as well.

And please don’t respond to this with all these moral equivalency statements.  Yes, I know all sorts of leftist celebrities and fake news media personalities have made all sorts of racist and homophobic statements and tweets, and none of them get fired.  I don’t care – it’s how the media/entertainment complex double standard works.  If celebrities like Barr and Kanye don’t like it and can’t control their mouths then they shouldn’t engage in it.

Roseanne needed firing – I dislike Disney as much as anyone, but Iger really had no choice in the matter.  And all the people out there in social media trying to mount a campaign to get Fox to pick up the show are idiots.  Neither Fox nor anyone else would touch Roseanne with a 100-foot pole right now.

Roseanne is done – her only choice now is to do a Mel Gibson, disappear for about 5 years, and hope everyone forgets.  Sadly for her, they won’t.

Expect the Horowitz Report later this week. – Why?  Because Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley took the action late yesterday to schedule a June 5 hearing of his committee to examine the findings in the DOJ Inespector General’s report on the department’s fake investigation into the Pantsuit Princess email scandal and other Clinton-related matters.  No called witnesses are listed on the notice, but we can assume Horowitz will be one of them.

This obviously means that Grassley expects the report to be made public prior to that time, which makes sense given that it has been circulating within DOJ for almost three weeks now.  We should probably expect to see it late Friday.

Just as a reminder, this report ostensibly deals only with the Fainting Felon’s email abuse and the Comey-led, rigged investigation conducted by the FBI and DOJ.  It will also cover other related matters, whatever they might be.  It is not supposed to touch on all the rampant FISA abuse, the Uranium One scandal, the “Crossfire Hurricane” effort to spy on the Trump campaign and transition team, the illegal unmaskings, and all the other Obama-era process abuses at DOJ, FBI and the CIA, among others.

Those myriad abuses by the Obama Administration will be addressed in a subsequent IG report, which will hopefully come before the end of the century.  Ok, just kidding – it’s supposed to come sometime this summer.

But here’s the thing about that subsequent report:  the content of the report we are about to see will give us a very usable preview of what to expect in the next report.  If this upcoming report from the IG is just an effort to whitewash the whole thing and give Comey/Strzok/Page/Ohr/Baker/Priestap and others at FBI and DOJ a pass, the we can expect the subsequent report to do the same, and quit worrying about it all.

But if this IG report on the email scandal is a hard-hitting, no-nonsense report of the sort Mr. Horowitz is famous for – and that his report on Andrew McCabe’s actions certainly was – then we can be optimistic that the final report will be of similar quality.

The anticipation of waiting for this IG report reminds me of what I wrote shortly after Comey made his famous speech on July 6 , 2016 exonerating the Pantsuit Princess at the conclusion of his rigged investigation:

The tragedy of James Comey is one of lost opportunity. He and he alone had a chance – possibly the last chance anyone will ever have if Hillary is elected in November – to demonstrate that one of the foundational principles of the American Experiment still applies.
 
That foundational principle is that we are a country in which all people are indeed created equal. That this is a country that has no ruling class. That this is a nation of laws, not of men, and that the laws that apply to the lowest among us apply equally to those who attain the highest public status.
 
James Comey alone could have become a true American hero by showing that this principle still applies in our society. Because he lacked either the character or the courage to do so, he demonstrated, perhaps irrevocably, that the opposite is now true in Barack Obama’s fundamentally transformed America. We do now have a ruling class; we are no longer a nation of laws, but a nation of men; the law truly does apply differently to different people depending entirely on their class and political power.
 
It’s a tragedy, plain and simple.  Nothing else matters or need be said. 

 

Michael Horowitz now has the same opportunity that Comey had almost two years ago – he can be remembered either as the steadfast public servant who, like Admiral Mike Rogers and Representive Devin Nunes, did everything he could to save the Republic, or just another tragic functionary in a hopelessly-corrupted Department of Justice. 

Let’s hope he makes the right choice.  I’m not even going to hazard a guess.

Just another day in Michael Horowitz is the man of the hour America.

That is all.
