Democrat House Managers Leave the Door Wide Open for the Trump Legal Team

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

The Democrat/media/Deep State Axis of Propaganda is in full swing. – Watch as former Clinton bag man and career propagandist George Stephanopoulous gets caught live on air attempting to cut off video feed of Trump Lawyer Jay Sekulow debunking the Democrats’ impeachment scam:

This is what Republicans are always up against with the corrupt news media. It’s been this way pretty much since the advent of television, in fact. So, while ABC/NBC/CBS/CNN/MSNBC have shown us play-by-play of the entirety of the Democrats’ ridiculous impeachment scam, with hour upon hour of Adam Schiff, Jabba the Nadler and the other house manager freak show guest stars, you can bet you will not see the same kind of wall-to-wall coverage of the Trump legal team presenting its case.

But that’s just part of the deal here. The Trump legal team is staffed with guys like Sekulow who know all of that and will be prepared.

And here’s the thing: That legal team has a golden opportunity to completely outshine the house managers and their endless repetition of a set of arguments so specious that any real judge would laugh them out of court. Schiff and company were out of new things to say about mid-day on Wednesday. Since then, their strategy has been to pound on the same array of stupidity and dishonesty over and over again, which has to be grating on the nerves of even the Democrat senators at this point.

So what are they doing to do today? Repeat the same old nonsense several more times, in an effort to make their pitifully inconsequential case appear to be more beefy by consuming the entire 24 hours allotted to them under the rule adopted for this trial. There are a lot of people in the Senate who are grumpy by nature – the house managers won’t want to be anywhere near them when they are finally done with this mindless Kabuki dance.

The President’s legal team will no doubt begin their part of this show on Saturday by offering a simple motion to dismiss, given that the Democrats have yet again utterly failed to demonstrate any real wrongdoing by President Trump. Assuming that motion fails – which at this point may or may not be a safe assumption – Trump’s lawyers should make their rebuttal case as vigorously and as efficiently as possible.

If it takes 24 hours to fully make that case, then fine, take the full 24 hours. But if the case can fully be made in 18 hours, or 12 hours, or 6 hours without the actual facts and arguments having to be repeated over and over again, then rest the case in 18 or 12 or 6 hours. Don’t make Chuck Schumer have to argue with the imaginary friend who keeps taking his chair any longer than he has to, and you might even pick up some votes to acquit by some of the Democrats’ nursing home contingent, like Pat Leahy and Dianne Feinstein.

Bottom line here: The Democrats are intent on taking their full 24 hours for the literal sake of filling 24 hours of time. President Trump’s legal team should take the time it really takes to make their case, and then let it rest.

That is all.

Only an Incredibly Shallow Society Could Produce this Impeachment Scam

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

The assisted living senators are not dealing well with these long hours. – The U.S. Senate has, more than at any other time in its history, become a home for elderly citizens during the 21st Century. This is in large part due to the fact that it has also more and more become a place to accumulate massive amounts of wealth at the expense of the U.S. taxpayer in recent decades. No one wants to voluntarily leave the gig when there’s always so much more wealth to be grafted.

Thus, this ongoing Kabuki dance of an impeachment trial takes place in what is basically an incredibly wealthy assisted living center. It is becoming increasingly obvious that the long days and late nights are already beginning to take a toll as the silliness enters its third day today. California’s 86 year-old Senator Dianne Feinstein decided she’d had enough of the nonsense as Bug-eyed Adam Schiff droned on late last night, and just got up and left a full hour before the Senate was adjourned:

 

Virginia Senator Mark Warner, kind of a Senate kindergartener at age 66, was reported to have fallen asleep during Schiff’s lie-filled monologue:

Image

Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer – a veritable spring chicken of the Democrat caucus at age 69 – has begun exhibiting clear signs of not being all there mentally. Watch as he shooos an imaginary person out of his chair as he returns from a bathroom break:

Seriously, you can’t make this stuff up. Think about this: These are the people who are governing this country right now. Frightening.

But hey, even though the Senators were having a hard time holding their eyes open or avoiding twice-hourly potty breaks during Schiff’s hours of bleating, the guy who bills himself on Twitter as a “national security correspondent” for the Washington Post developed a clear man crush on ol’ Bugeyes:

Can’t wait to hear Greg Miller’s true feelings about Jabba the Nadler or Patrick Leahy. Maybe Netflix will turn the “national security correspondent’s” diary into a 10-episode mini-series.

Of course, the subject matter being considered in this impeachment scam is so utterly and moronically trivial that it’s no wonder the Senators can’t keep their eyes open or hold their bowels. My wife and I are spending this week on a cruise ship filled with people from all over the world, and all I have been able to think about as we have interacted with folks from various other nations is how picayunish this absurd spectacle truly is.

For example, in chatting with our waiter last night, we learned he is a Kurd. He put on a happy face because he is really good at his job, but think about what someone who spends 10 of his 12 months each year working night and day on a gigantic ship and worrying about what might be happening to his family back home must think about how utterly superficial American politics have become.

Before dinner, we spent time in a bar talking with a wonderful group of citizens of Trinidad and Tobago. We talked about current events in their country, which is really struggling economically right now, as well as the collapse of Venezuela and the massive recent oil discoveries off the coasts of nearby Suriname and Guyana, which they are all hoping might positively impact their own island nation.

On this cruise, we have met people from France, where the massive “yellow vest” protests have now been ongoing for 55 weeks, and largely ignored by the U.S. news media. There are similar protest movements taking place all over Europe and South America and Asia right now, and the “national security correspondent” for the WaPo is Tweeting out his love for a pathological liar who has had our own politics tied up hyper-analyzing an innocuous 20-minute phone call that happened 7 months ago.

On this cruise, we have met people from Russia and Croatia and the Phillipines and Hong Kong, all places in the throes of real human struggles of paramount importance, and our corrupt news media is focused on providing maximum exposure for an impeachment that’s like an episode of “Seinfeld,” a show about nothing.

Miller’s right about one thing: Schiff’s conduct of this impeachment scam will indeed leave a mark on history. That mark will be in the form of an indelible black ink stain on our nation’s legacy that can never be gotten out.

What an incredibly shallow society we have become.

That is all.

Richmond Rally Ends Without Incident: News Media Hardest Hit

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

Tired of all this WINNING yet? – Every major U.S. stock index attained yet another record-high closing level on Monday. This has been happening so often lately that I almost forgot to mention it this morning. But I’m not tired of it – I’ll never get tired of all this WINNING for America. Thank you, President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three glorious words).

This was not the preferred media/Democrat narrative at all. – The corrupt news media, working in concert with Governor Ralph Northam and his fellow Democrats, spent two solid weeks attempting to foment division in advance of yesterday’s pro-2nd Amendment rally on the Capital Grounds in Richmond, Virginia. Northam declared a completely unnecessary state of emergency around the rally last week and put up chain link fences around a large area in front of the Capital Building in order to keep rally-goers caged in.

Corrupt Democrat toadies at CNN and MSNBC made all manner of inflammatory statements over the past week about the rally attendees, portraying them all as ultra-violent “white supremacists” who were traveling to Richmond to shoot the place up in protest of the Democrats’ efforts to enact gun confiscation laws. CNN, of course, literally lives to foment division and violence in America, because it helps the failing cable channel’s disastrous ratings outside of its captive audience in our nation’s airports.

Governor KKK Northam and his fellow gun-grabbing Democrats desperately wanted to see violence break out at the rally because they believed such a spectacle would help convince the public of the wisdom behind their looming gun grab. Thankfully, these despicable ghouls all came away crestfallen.

In the end, an anticipated crowd of 12,000 swelled to what looked to be well over 30,000 participants who came from all parts of the Virginia Commonwealth and beyond to demonstrate their support for the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, an amendment the Democrat party, given the power, would do away with in a heartbeat. There were no Nazi swastikas seen on clothing, no Confederate flags flying, no racist slogans being shouted, nobody giving the “ok” sign that the media has now declared to be a gesture of “white supremacy,” no fights, no scuffles, no violence.

Hell, the attendees even stuck around after the rally was over to clean up after themselves, something you will never see happening after a Women’s March or other leftist event:

Just thousands of Americans demonstrating their support for the literal foundation of the American republic. The corrupt reporters and camera people present at the rally couldn’t even stage a fake fight – as CNN has so often been caught doing – because thousands of the rally attendees were live-streaming the event on social media using their cellular phones.

The ghoulish Democrat activists at CNN and MSNBC, lacking any film of people fighting and bleeding – which is always a feature at rallies featuring Antifa or other leftist groups – were at a loss for an alternative narrative. So, they turned yet again to projecting violence they hope will take place in the future, once the Democrats in Richmond get their gun-grab bills passed:

Again, the ghouls at MSNBC and CNN are actively hoping for that outcome. Which is why you will never see Chris Hayes or any other on-air “talent” at either channel questioning the wisdom of the Democrats’ approach to the issue.

For his part, a deflated Gov. Northam issued a statement saying, “We are all thankful that today passed without incident. The teams successfully de-escalated what could have been a volatile situation. This resulted from weeks of planning and extensive cooperation among state, local, and federal partners in Virginia and beyond.”

Of course, there was nothing to “de-escalate,” other than the pre-rally rhetoric coming from the Governor himself and his media toadies.

A pox on all their houses.

God bless the people of Virginia – they deserve the support of all thinking Americans in their battle against the Democrats’ unconstitutional gun grab.

That is all.

Twitter User Goes on a CNN-Exposing Tour de Force

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

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

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

 

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

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

He continues:

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

But wait, there’s more!

 

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

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

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

And he ends with…:

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

 

Fantastic. Pure, epic greatness.

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

That is all.

Matt Gaetz’s Really Stupid War Powers Resolution Vote

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

The corrupt news media and biased polls tell us this guy is leading the race. – The photo below shows the turnout for a rally for the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator, Quid Pro Joe Biden, on Saturday:

Image

Note the loudspeaker atop an 8-foot stand on the right side of the photo, meaning that the crack Biden campaign staff thought their hero would need a microphone while speaking to this crowd of …1,2,3,4,5, 6,7,8,9,10,…11 people. Talk about overkill.

Like everything else in the corrupt news media today, it’s likely we are being lied to about the real status of the race for the Democrat presidential nomination, and that, once the voting begins, the results will bear only passing relationship to the polls we have been seeing. Stay tuned for some surprises starting in a few weeks.

Matt Gaetz, you got some ‘splainin’ to do. – Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz made a terrible error in judgment this week when he became one of just three Republicans to vote in favor of Nancy Pelosi’s resolution that pretends to somehow “limit” President Trump’s ability to conduct a full-scale war, whether with Iran or any other country.

Gaetz, appearing on Fox News with Tucker Carlson, attempted to explain his vote as follows:

“I spoke to the president today,” Gaetz revealed on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”  “The president told me he is more antiwar than I am, and I love the president for that. The thing is, I think a few of the advisers of the president are trying to slow-walk the administration into war. When the president relies on his instincts and we have the Trump doctrine, we kill the terrorist and we come home.”

“I think this War Powers Resolution was worthy of support because it did not criticize the president,” he said. “It did not say he was wrong in killing [Quds Force Gen.] Soleimani. But…it did say that if any president wants to drag our nation into another forever Middle East war that they require the approval of the United States Congress.”

“That’s something I deeply believe. And I think it’s something the president deeply believes,” he said.

Ok, that’s all well and good, and taken as a pure philosophical analysis, it is something that the vast majority of Trump supporting Republican voters – including me – would agree with. The problem is that philosophy was not all that was at play here. Pelosi’s resolution – which is utterly meaningless as a matter of law or actual impact on any president’s constitutional powers – was a political stunt. More to the point, it was a political stunt intended as a rebuke to this particular President, a symbolic vote condemning his decision to take out Iranian terrorist leader Qassem Soleimani with a drone strike 9 days ago.

There was zero justifiable reason for any real Republican to lend Pelosi support with this cynical political stunt.

It is one thing for a couple of noted libertarian cranks like Rand Paul and Mike Lee to vote for this resolution, which they certainly will do when it comes to a vote in the Senate this coming week. That, after all, is why they threw their dishonest hissy fits following the administration’s confidential briefing on Capitol Hill on Wednesday. They were just setting up their backstories for giving aid and comfort to the enemy, Pelosi.

But it’s quite another thing for Gaetz, who wants to be one of 3 or 4 House Managers who will argue the GOP’s side of the impeachment case in the upcoming senate trail, to do so. The people who want this particular assignment need to be sober and serious GOP members, not someone prone to grandstanding vanity plays, which is what Gaetz’s vote actually was.

What Gaetz actually achieved with this vote was to give Pelosi and her fellow Democrats in the House a propaganda victory. Gaetz has become one of the most high-profile Republican members in the House, and his vote gives Pelosi a poster child she can point to and say, “See? We had bi-partisan support.” Philosophy is important, but political sense and strategy is also vitally important in today’s D.C. Swamp, and Gaetz miserably failed that political test.

Gaetz’s constituents know that, and let him hear about it at an event in Florida Friday evening:

President Trump has basically zero intention of “drag[ging] our nation into another forever Middle East war,” and Pelosi knows it. This meaningless resolution is all about supporting the Democrat/Media narrative that attempts to convince the public otherwise. That’s something Gaetz should have known – but apparently did not – before he cast his stupid vote.

It’s a vote that’s impossible to really justify, and one that he will pay for politically for a long, long time.

That is all.

President Trump is About to get Everything he Wants in Iraq

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

Go ahead, twist Trump’s arm. – The Associated Press reports today that Iraq’s prime minister, Adel Abdul-Mahdi, has formally asked the Trump Administration to begin making preparations for withdrawal of U.S. troops from that country.

From the AP story:

The request came in a telephone call Thursday night between Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi, a statement from his office said. He also told Pompeo that recent U.S. strikes in Iraq were an unacceptable breach of Iraqi sovereignty and a violation of the two countries’ security agreements.

He asked Pompeo to “send delegates to Iraq to prepare a mechanism to carry out the parliament’s resolution regarding the withdrawal of foreign troops from Iraq,” according to the statement.

“The prime minister said American forces had entered Iraq and drones are flying in its airspace without permission from Iraqi authorities, and this was a violation of the bilateral agreements,” the statement added.

The Democrats and their toadies in the corrupt U.S. news media will no doubt attempt to portray this as some sort of blow to the Trump Administration for the simple fact that none of them have ever made any effort to really understand the President’s actual goals related to Iraq and the Middle East in general.

One more time for anyone who is still not clear on this: One of the main reasons why Donald Trump won the 2016 election was his promise – his repeated, unambiguous promise – to get the U.S. military presence out of all the various Middle East and North African conflicts into which his two immediate predecessors had entangled our country. This President – unlike those two predecessors in office – is a man who is focused on keeping his promises.

This really is not complicated at all.

So, while all the Usual Suspect warmongers in congress like Lindsey Graham and Marco Rubio will scream bloody murder, along with some of the President’s top advisors, President Trump will very likely be quite pleased to grant Abdul-Mahdi’s request. The Democrats and corrupt news media who have been blasting the President as a warmonger over his completely justified killing of Iranian terrorist leader Qassem Soleimani will then turn on a dime and blast him for being naive and rash in deciding to end the U.S.’s 17-year military engagement in Iraq.

At the end of the day, the President stands to achieve every one of his goals related to both Iraq and Iran in just a couple of short weeks, and also to set the stage for a full withdrawal of U.S. military personnel from America’s 18-year engagement in Afghanistan and 5-year engagement in Syria.

This is what Donald Trump was elected to do. It’s amazing how utterly incapable his opponents and critics are of learning that simple reality.

That is all.

The WaPo Rolls Out a Narrative-Setting Story on the Huber Investigation

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

Are you possibly getting a wee little bit tired of all this WINNING yet? No? – Yeah, you know what’s coming: All major U.S. stock indexes – the NASDAQ, the S&P 500 and the Dow – closed at all-time record high levels on Thursday as the markets recognized the soundness of the Trump Administration’s strategy vis a vis Iran even as the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies raged on about it. And it’s only going to get better today, as pre-market trading futures indicate the markets will open at new record levels later this morning. Truly, it never gets old.

Is Hillary finally off the hook on her fake Foundation influence peddling? – If you believe the Washington Post, you will think she is. The corrupt news fakers at the WaPo reported yesterday that the “investigation” supposedly being conducted by Salt Lake City U.S. Attorney John Huber – a lifelong Democrat and Obama appointee – into the machinations of the Clinton Foundation has ended without result. Thus, if the report, based solely on the Post’s usual anonymous sources, is to be believed, the Huber investigation turns out to have been just another of so many false promises made by the worthless ex-Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who announced his assignment of this task to Huber in early 2018.

It has long seemed obvious to me that Huber was actually doing nothing real on this “investigation;” thus, this report comes as no real surprise. But this is the Washington Post, after all, filing yet another foundation-devoid report based on nothing but “sources” who refuse to be named. As we have seen time after time over the last four years, this sort of report has well over a 50% chance of being a completely false story, nothing more than an attempt by someone who might be a target of the “investigation” to set a favorable narrative in advance of the issuance of whatever findings Huber may decide to produce. We have seen this tactic time after time after time, as corrupt media outlets like the WaPo work hard to provide cover for their Deep State benefactors.

So, it is always wise to wait a few days to see what else might pop up.

It is interesting to note that this story is chock-full of all sorts of qualifiers and weasel words, which indicates the reporter(s) who worked on it are attempting to spin a yarn and want to be able to claim ignorance should future revelations prove it to have been inaccurate. Here are some examples:

  • The very first paragraph says the investigation “has effectively ended with no tangible results, and current and former law enforcement officials said they never expected the effort to produce much of anything.” What that sentence really says is that the investigation hasn’t ended at all and the “sources” on whom the reporter is relying aren’t really sure of what they are telling the reporter. Also, “much of anything” is not nothing, indicating the reporter and his sources believe Huber has found something, and that something has them worried.
  • This is confirmed in paragraph 3, which says, in part: “Current and former officials said that Huber has largely finished and found nothing worth pursuing — though the assignment has not formally ended and no official notice has been sent to the Justice Department or to lawmakers, these people said.” Oh. Ok.
  • Paragraph 4 reinforces that the investigation is not actually closed with this opening: “The effective conclusion of his investigation…” An “effective” conclusion is not a conclusion.

Thus, we see the early paragraphs of the story completely contradict the headline. This investigation – to the extent it is a real investigation – is not closed at all, and someone in the Deep State is worried about that fact.

The next part of any good Deep State cover story is to glorify the bad actors at the DOJ who are most likely also the people leaking this information to the WaPo’s reporter.

  • Paragraph 11 takes care of that task with this: “But from the start, senior officials inside the Justice Department viewed Huber’s task as unlikely to lead to anything of significance…” That would be “senior officials” like Peter Strzok and Andrew McCabe and James Comey and Lisa Page. You know – all those “senior officials” who no longer work at the DOJ.

There is much, much more of this kind of nonsense in this story, including three paragraphs later on that are designed to create sympathy for poor, poor Hillary Clinton, but you get the point: This is just another Deep State narrative creation story dutifully rolled out by the sympathetic corrupt reporters and editors who infest the WaPo and our national fake news media.

Again, I harbor little belief that Huber has been doing anything real in this investigation as it relates to the Clinton Foundation, and am not anticipating any real results from it in terms of doing anything to punish the Pantsuit Princess for her blatant selling of the Secretary of State’s office to the highest bidders. But this particular WaPo story, planted as it obviously has been by Deep State interests, raises the prospect that Huber might be onto something tangentially related to the Clinton Foundation, something that has some Deep State skunk or snake worried.

So, best to wait a few days and see what else develops on this front before just assuming Huber has a big bag of nothing. Because more often than not, narrative-setting stories like this one clearly is turn out to be proven false by subsequent events.

One last thought: If the Pantsuit Princess wants to make one final run at the presidency this year, she will need to be free and clear from accusations of wrongdoing related to her foundation. Just a thought…

 

That is all.

Another CNN Narrative Engineer Gets Destroyed on National Television

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

Fox News is reporting that Iran’s government has designated the U.S. Army as a “terrorist organization.” – That’s like having the Veggie Whopper designate you as a bad hamburger. Silliness.

Yeah, that narrative isn’t going to work, either, CNN. – We talk a lot about how the Democrats and their toadies in the corrupt news media coordinate daily on the narratives they plan to push. This is because that’s exactly what they do on a daily basis in their tireless efforts to destroy the foundations of the American Republic and hamper the Trump Administration’s policy efforts.

In Sunday morning’s Update, we laid out the Democrat/Media’s overarching narrative in response to the glorious killing of Iranian terrorist leader Qassem Soleimani, and why it will fail with the American public. 24 hours later, the despicable toadies at CNN tried to run with another element of their narrative, as they and their Democrat benefactors go through basically the same playbook they deploy in response to any military strike or campaign ordered by any Republican president.

This element is called the “nobody else agrees with the U.S. position on this” canard. Its premise is that the action taken or planned for the future by the U.S. president is inherently invalid because no other country – especially the nations of Europe – are on board with it. We have seen this posture assumed by the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies in response to every military venture authorized by a Republican president since Grenada.

On Monday evening, CNN International’s Becky Anderson, who is a British reporter based in Dubai, attempted to roll this narrative element out to her channel’s paltry audience during an interview with stellar State Department Spokesman Morgan Ortagus. The results were spectacular.

Here is a clip of the interview followed by a transcript:

Here’s the Transcript for those of you who still like to read stuff:

Anderson: The United States does, ummm, seem to be almost completely isolated when it comes to its position on Iran at present. U.S. allies in Europe, in the Middle East where I am, and in Asia are either calling for de-escalation or are virtually silent. There is almost no support for U.S. actions. Morgan, where are America’s allies at this point?

Ortagus: With all due respect, that’s just another completely inaccurate observation. You could look at the E3 Statement that was put out this morning by the Germans, the British and the French. The British, the Italians, you could go through the list of the people who have said that [Anderson attempts to shut her down here] the world is a better place now that Soleimani’s dead.

Anderson: You talked about the need for de-escalation, with respect.

Ortagus: We have talked about the need for de-escalation. We have called for a peaceful resolution – the President has consistently said that he does not want a war, that we believe we can solve our differences bilaterally. There’s two things that this President has consistently said since the beginning of this Administration, and that is that he wants peace, that he doesn’t want war and that Iran will not get a nuclear weapon. And those two things are not mutually inconsistent.

And, may I add, Brian Hook, our Special Envoy for Iran was just with NATO this morning, briefing them. We are incredibly confident in this public statement. Your audience should know, and should go and read the E3 statement put out by the Germans, the French and the British [Anderson interrupting again here] that contradict what you just said to me. It completely contradicts you.

Anderson: [Now visibly angry] Wha..hang on a minute…hang on a minute. Mike Pompeo said he was disappointed with the Europeans’ reaction. What did he mean by that?

Ortagus: He said that on Friday night, and there’s a brand-spanking new statement this morning from the E3 that we are quite pleased with, that you can go Google right now.

Anderson: [Several seconds of dead air as Anderson attempts to compose herself. Listen to how high-pitched her voice gets here as she tries to control her anger.]  Now that Iran has said it is no longer going to abide by the nuclear deal…

Ortagus: …They’ve been saying that for a long time now…

Anderson: …how lo..how lo…I haven’t fi…with respect, I haven’t finished. There will be those watching the show, uh, tonight who say that the United States has actually brought the world closer to a nuclear Iran. To which you say what?

Ortagus: Iran has been saying for a long time that they wouldn’t abide by the JCPOA. The fact has been that the E3, our European partners, if you go back to September, to the UN General Assembly in New York, and look at that statement, in the beginning of the week that the E3 put out. Again, the E3 called for Iran to come back to the negotiating table for a new and better deal. The Europeans have also said very publicly that they were, they have expressed their displeasure at the Iranian regime, consistently saying over the past, I think it’s been at least six months, that they’re going to defy the JCPOA.

So you don’t have to take America’s word for it. Take the Europeans’ word for it.

Anderson: That… we will leave it there.

[End]

It’s important to note that CNN wasn’t the only corrupt media outlet attempting to roll out this element of the Democrat/media playbook on Monday. Ortagus was also interviewed on the same subject by SkyNews, and by the detestable Leland Vittert on Fox News. The results of both interviews were basically the same, with Ortagus scorching the earth with the leftist hacks.

Again as we have pointed out in the past, none of this media hostility towards Republican presidents originated with Donald Trump. This dynamic of rank liberal bias in the media goes back to the dawn of television as a medium, and really to the 1920s, as communists began to infiltrate journalism schools and newspapers in the United States.

The difference in this administration is the volume and pervasiveness of it all, along with the fact that the corrupt journalists and editors no longer even make a token effort to attempt to hide their bias. At least Walter Cronkite and Tom Brokaw tried to pretend to be even-handed.

All of which makes getting good people into the spokesperson jobs more important than ever. Morgan Ortagus deserves a raise.

That is all.

Trump is Completely Exposing the Democrats and the Media

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

[Note: The following piece is from contributor Gregg Updike. I hope you enjoy his thoughts on the situation with Iran, and how President Trump is exposing the seditious nature of the Democrat Party and its corrupt media toadies – I know I did.]

While it is great that President Trump has recently taken out a couple of head honchos in the Middle East, can anyone doubt that their #2s (in every sense of the word) won’t just take over and continue their fight?  Had Hitler been successfully assassinated in July 1944, Goering would have taken over, then Himmler…

Point being, just because America took out these leaders, it does not mean Iran and ISIS will stack their bats and quit the field.  This means we need to be even more vigilant against reprisals.  I am in no way saying that Trump is wrong in what he is doing, I’m just saying these “foreign entanglements”, and their consequences, are far from over.  I only hope and pray for our president’s safety, and that he soon removes all our assets (targets) including our embassies from that entire region; let the various factions pound each other into the sand.  ​​

Now that we are oil independent, turn the keys over to Israel and let them have at it; let them either win outright with our tacit support, or continue with the tit-for-tat fighting that has been going on there forever.  I don’t care which route Israel takes, and neither should most Americans.  It would be nice, however, if a greater number of Americans of Jewish descent would actually support Trump and his efforts to defeat Israel’s ancient enemies abroad and renounce and work to defeat Anti-Semitic Democratic Politicians here rather than voting lockstep Democrat for whatever reason.​

Once we are out of the region, our doctrine should be: we will flatten any country that causes us harm – period, end of story, with no “nation building/rebuilding”.  Let Europe, without the US propping up NATO, fend for itself against the threats from the Middle East, Russia, and China.  And finally, we must get out of the UN and get the UN out of America.​​

Apart from the transformation of the courts, and the draining of the swamp via Barr and Durham, Trump’s greatest contribution to America will be the total exposure of the media and the Democratic Party as a cabal of anti-American seditionists.  Sooner or later there will be a Bastille Day of sorts, and the domestic enemies of America as founded will be dealt with.  They will be easy to find as they are doing a wonderful job of exposing themselves for all to see.

They are effectively targeting themselves for destruction by openly rooting for our enemies and against America/Trump. Yet these “journalists” and other “experts” are supposed to be among the best and brightest from American institutions of higher learning; how myopic they all are.  In the interim, Trump is driving them insane with their TDS and making them more and more irrelevant.​​

The MSM is, and has been, working hand in hand with America’s domestic enemies to diminish and destroy our constitution, amendment by amendment for decades.  What makes them think the 1st Amendment will survive to protect them if the “Fundamental Change” that the Obama types want to bring to America ever comes to fruition?​

On the foreign side, the NY Times had a reporter named Walter Duranty espousing Stalin’s communist propaganda from Moscow pre WWII, CNN had an embed in Middle East during Gulf War 1 who refused to be debriefed by the Pentagon upon his return after the first war.  And before and during the second Iraq War, CNN had “exclusive” coverage from their Baghdad “correspondent” who was reporting to the world only exactly what Saddam Hussein and Baghdad Bob allowed him to say.

I also remember how many, if not most MSM TV anchors refused to wear US Flag lapel pins stating they didn’t want to be seen rooting for one side or the other – just the facts, uh, sure, right.  Presidents Wilson (D), and FDR (D) most certainly censored the press during their terms, so there is precedent on the regulation of “Free” (Political) Speech.​

History has shown when there is a “Fundamental Change” i.e. revolution, or invasion of a country, or other takeover, the first people purged are the “intelligentsia” including professors of higher learning and the press… ​​

I’m a capable and productive person who is very adaptable and has worked many blue collar jobs and I can survive in almost any political environment by what I bring to the table.  I don’t believe any of these singularly specialized propagandists, masquerading as “experts” or “journalists” are capable of doing anything but being keyboard warriors, and ignorant social justice and environmental agitators.

They will be the first ones eliminated if and when true socialism/fascism/communism comes to America. The constitution as we know it will be gone, and the country will be ruled by a dictator.  No dictator would ever tolerate any such fifth column activity; it will be brutally put down just as sure as the sun comes up every day.​​

I only hope the “useful idiots” that the left has used for their evil anti-American purpose will someday soon wise up and abandon their (ultimately petty) crusades for their own sake.  Of the 328 or so million people in the US, only about 8-10% are the agitators, the loudmouths, the troublemakers to varying degrees; still that can be as many as ten million people young or old enough to actually be active in all the protests/riots that are sure to come this November when Trump wins a second term in a landslide, and the House flips to the GOP.

I truly believe that the other 90+ percent of the country – if not the world – are fundamentally good people who would just love to be able to live their lives in peaceful coexistence without all this conflict and drama. It’s the 10 percenters that must be defeated and ultimately eliminated for peace to prevail.​

The president has shown great acumen in his ability to be ahead of the curve and has been very successful in blunting and exposing the left’s agenda(s).  His second term, starting with the first sign of violence after the election, must be the direct, forceful and complete stopping of all the paid professional protesters/rioters.  Then he must go after all the domestic and foreign money people funding this Anti-American revolution/coup.

The presidential oath states the president’s first obligation is to protect and defend America and its’ Constitution from all foreign and domestic enemies.  All of the people and entities (including and especially the MSM/SM) who have been engaged in this three plus year coup, Logan Act Violations, aiding and abetting election interference (that was actually done by the Democrats), illegally spying on any American, or allowing/authorizing the same, and who promote the subsequent violence should be charged under the RICO Act.
