Greta Thunberg Needs a Caring Adult in her Life

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

Ok, so, you’re saying nothing’s changed, then? – The Washington Post breathlessly reports today that 1 in 7 adults in New Orleans has a warrant out for their arrest. This is “news” in Washington, D.C., but in New Orleans it’s called laissez les bon temps rouler.

Whatever happened to Matt Drudge? – The Drudge Report once was a great place to get a balanced cross-section of actual news. For many years it was the best news accumulator site on the web. But about two years ago, Drudge went completely off into the fake news establishment universe. Maybe he was threatened, maybe he was bought off – who knows? Whatever the motivation, his site is useless at this point. Here’s what it looks like this morning:

Who needs the Weekly World News anymore when Matt Drudge is around?

In all seriousness, there was a time when Matt Drudge had a good nose for when the Democrats and establishment media were lying to us in unison. That’s the only reason why the Monica Lewinsky story ever made it into the public domain, in fact, given that several major establishment news outlets had had that story for months but intended to keep it quiet.

But now Drudge just uses his site as a tool to push out and perpetuate these Democrat fantasy plays. Which of course is why everyone should stop visiting his site and rely on Whatfinger.com instead.

Everyone should feel nothing but sympathy and pity for Greta Thunberg. – Not sympathy for anything she has to say about “climate change” – that’s all just parroting alarmist talking points prepared for her by a bunch abusive adults. If you missed it, take the 2 minutes required to watch her very deranged speech given at the UN on Monday:

No, we should feel sympathy for the way this 16 year-old child has been abused by those adult activists who put her up to all of this and by pretty much every other adult she has ever had in her life. As Tiana Lowe, writing in the Washington Examiner, put it recently:

“The case of Greta Thunberg is even more egregious. Thunberg began suffering from depression as a child, by her own admission, in part because she learned about climate change at age eight. She was later diagnosed with autism and obsessive compulsive disorder and gradually became despondent as she obsessed over her fear of climate change. She developed mutism and an eating disorder so severe that she once went two months without food, and she stopped going to school. Her only sibling, a sister named Beata, also suffers from Asperger’s and OCD, as well as ADHD.

“Now tell me, does it seem healthy to place a child with this many mental illnesses under the spotlight of public scrutiny, with a sole focus on the very phenomenon and associated alarmism that triggered her in the first place?”

Indeed, her mother – a former opera performer – is so desperate for attention that she actually wrote a book about her child’s many mental issues. Both of her parents – her father is an actor and director – are so uncaring about their child’s well-being that they have allowed her to be used as a poster child for a what is without any real question anymore a global religious cult.

The leaders of that global cult, having succeeded in frightening this poor child and millions of others across the globe with their alarmist nonsense that has spread throughout our education systems and news media, are only too happy to put her up on stage at a global event. There, she comes across to any thinking person who is not a part of the cult as exactly what she is: A very frightened little child who has no adult in her life to cares enough about her to offer her some comfort.

She deserves our sympathy. She deserves our pity. And the adults who surround her deserve nothing but our scorn.

In his opening monologue Monday night, Tucker Carlson got it exactly right when he compared the religious cult’s use of Thunberg to terrorists’ use of children as human shields:

“When you use children to demand power, they become a kind of human shield. You can hide safely behind them. No one can criticize you. Anyone who would do that is someone who would literally do anything to seize control, and that’s exactly what they are doing.”

This is child abuse.

That is all.

How Long Before Biden Bows Out?

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

Great dates in American Politics. – Exactly 32 years ago today, on September 23, 1987, Joe Biden, hair plugs intact, withdrew his name from consideration for the 1988 Democrat presidential nomination:

Image may contain: 1 person

Biden’s withdrawal from his first run for the presidency came after it had been revealed that he had plagiarized from a speech given in the UK earlier that same year by British Labor Party leader Neil Kinnock. Biden didn’t just lift a word here and there from Kinnock’s speech, mind you – he stole almost the entire thing. Which is pretty amazing, considering the Kinnock’s speech was an autobiographical recounting of his own life. That’s what kind of a brazen thief Joe Biden proved himself to be at the tender age of 44.

As this whole fake “whistleblower” non-scandal being promoted by the Democrat/Media propaganda complex continues to have the unintended effect of causing the reality of Biden and his family’s self-dealings to profit from the office of the vice presidency from 2009-2016, I’m beginning to think the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator and least-favorite Creepy Uncle might end up having to deliver another similar withdrawal speech within the next week or two.

Bear with me here.

As I have written these Campaign Updates almost every day for the past three years now, I have repeatedly reminded readers of several recurring realities in our nation’s politics. Two of those recurring realities are especially relevant here. They are:

Projection is the Democrats’ favorite Alinsky tactic – Whenever you see Democrats accusing President Donald Trump or some other Republican of bad behavior, it is a near-100% certainty that the Democrats are in fact themselves guilty of that exact behavior; and

Whenever you see the Democrat/Media propaganda complex ridiculing Donald Trump for something he has said or Tweeted, it is a near-100% certainty that whatever Trump is saying or tweeting is absolutely true.

Think about how this whole fake controversy began last week: A fake “whistleblower” who has zero first-hand information lodges a complaint against the President, alleging that he intimidated the President of Ukraine in a discussion about corruption in that country. Now, think about what everyone paying attention has learned since: That Joe Biden actually did intimidate Ukrainian officials in 2016, blackmailing them by withholding $1 billion in U.S. aid until they fired a prosecutor who was investigating his son’s company. We know without any doubt that Biden did this because we have video of him bragging about doing it at a public forum.

Oh, hey, the President tweeted about that tape on Saturday:

 

Let’s take a look at some of President Trump’s tweets in response to this fake controversy, tweets that have been ridiculed by the Democrat/Media complex:

That was tweeted early on Sunday, and by the end of the day, the stories about Hunter Biden and other Biden family members becoming fabulously wealthy in sketchy business deals while Creepy Uncle Joe was VEEP were floating all over social media.

But wait, there’s more:

Here is the simple, inescapable reality: Just as Rudy Giuliani told John Roberts on Fox News Sunday, the Democrats and their media toadies have fallen into a trap here. No matter how hard they try, the fake news media outlets cannot contain this story on behalf of Creepy Uncle Joe and his ne’er-do-well son.

This all exposes the real Achilles’ Heel of the Democrat/Media complex: They keep acting like it’s still 1988 here. They keep thinking that the “media” is just the three broadcast networks, CNN, the New York Times and the Washington Post, and that as long as they have those outlets in their pockets they can control any story. The world doesn’t work that way anymore, boys and girls.

Biden was clearly rattled when confronted by a Fox News reporter on Saturday to explain his and his son’s activities related to Ukraine:

That is the bluster of a confused and panicked man. He has no idea what to do or how to answer, so he lashes out at the reporters to “ask the right questions.” He also probably lied outright when he said he and his son Hunter Biden had never discussed Hunter’s business dealings in the Ukraine, a claim that Hunter directly contradicted over the weekend.

Joe Biden is closing in on 77 years-old, and he is not in any way young for his age. He is in the midst of his third run for the presidency over a span of 32 years. His once-sizable polling leads in Iowa and New Hampshire are now gone, and Elizabeth Warren keeps slowly closing the gap with him in the national polls.

He now finds himself being caught in the middle of a corruption scandal that is not only of his and his son’s own making, but that he bragged about at public events. On camera. All his buds in the fake news media keep parroting their talking points, but fewer and fewer people are buying what they’re selling with every passing hour.

All of this is happening with next year’s Democrat convention still 10 long, long months away and Election Day more than 13 months hence.

Does anyone really think this very old, frail man has the stamina to last through all of that?

Not likely.

That is all.

P.S.: Right as I was posting this up, President Trump issued this tweet:

I’m just sayin’.

The “Whistleblower” Scandal is Just Another Fantasy Play

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

Cow farts? What cow farts? – At the annual Steak Fry in Polk County, Iowa, Democrat presidential contenders helped cook up roughly 10,500 steaks and other cuts of beef for the attendees over the weekend. This conspicuous consumption of the by-products of cattle comes after those selfsame Democrats had spent six full months lecturing us all that we need to quit eating beef because the cow farts are destroying our environment.

You seriously could never in a million years make these people up, folks.

The motives behind the “whistleblower” fake scandal are now becoming clear. – Some are speculating that this is a Democrat/media effort to protect Joe Biden from persistent allegations of wrongdoing in his dealings with Ukraine while serving as Vice President. Others are speculating that it’s an effort by the Democrat/media complex to recover from the utter failure of their fake “Russia Collusion” narrative.

It is becoming increasingly clear that it is in fact both, and even more. It’s also an effort by the Democrat/media complex to protect Hillary Clinton and her corrupt use of Ukraine spying efforts against the Trump Campaign in 2016.

Where Biden and Hillary are concerned, Rudy Giuliani laid it all out very clearly to a very uncomfortable John Roberts of Fox News on Sunday morning. Roberts did his best to obfuscate and shift focus on BidenClinton’s  behalf, but Rudy got the message out in a very specific and brutal way regardless. Here’s the clip – watch it at this link.

So, here are the bullet points on Rudy’s comments:

– Ukrainian officials worked on Hillary Clinton’s behalf to interfere in the 2016 U.S. elections and were in fact paid to do so;

– When the newly-elected Ukrainian president came into office, his administration began trying to get proof of his predecessor’s interference efforts to the U.S. State Department and Justice Department, but those efforts were rebuffed for months by Obama holdovers;

– They finally decided to contact Giuliani last fall, and Rudy decided to take up the cause in large part because it would provide exculpatory evidence against the efforts by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the Democrat/media complex to frame President Trump;

– Giuliani has been trying to get someone, anyone in the mainstream news media to report on the matter, but has met a stonewall of media corruption, including at Fox News;

– Meanwhile, Biden’s corrupt acts vis a vis Ukraine are a matter of public record, and video even exists of Biden bragging about strong-arming the 2016 Ukraine government to fire the prosecutor who was investigating his son’s firm for corruption. He was proud of it.

Now, while all that’s going on, percolating just below the surface waiting to bubble up in the midst of the Democrats’ presidential nominating race, the Mueller Report comes out and is a complete dud. This leaves San Fran Nan, Jabba The Nadler and Bug Eyes Schiff in the lurch, pulling the rug out from under their grand plans to impeach the President on obstruction of justice grounds.

What to do, what to do?

What is now becoming obvious is that Schiff or someone close to him in the Lawfare community came up with the idea of dummying up a new pretense for “obstruction.” How do they do that? Well, the intelligence bureaucracy is still teeming with Obama holdovers eager to do the work of the Deep State. Just get one of them to file a complaint against President Trump under the intelligence community’s whistleblower statute.

While all this scheming is going on, lo and behold, President Trump holds a call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in which the corrupt actions of Vice President Joe Biden becomes one of the topics that arise during a discussion about all the rampant corruption that took place under Zelensky’s predecessor. Now, all you have to do is find someone in the intel community – preferably one of the array of senior folks who listened in on the call first-hand – to file a complaint. When none of those people heard anything to complain about, no problem – you just find some second-tier Obamaphile who heard some stuff about the call second-hand, and presto!, you have your “whistleblower.”

Next, have Schiff, in his role as Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, start filing subpoenas for documents, recordings and testimony that he knows he will never receive. He knows this because a) the intelligence community’s whistleblower statute does not apply to the president of the United States, and b) such requests present all manner of separation of powers issues under the Constitution, as I explained in yesterday’s Campaign Update. Thus, with the White House refusing for very valid reasons to cooperate, you send Bug Eyes and his deputies out to be interviewed every hour on the hour on CNN and MSNBC and Shep Smith at Fox, wailing about the President’s “obstruction of congress.”

Now, it’s time to bring the thousands of Democrat media toadies into the game, complete with a set of talking points they all loyally parrot on TV, radio and in their print publications. Those talking points maintain that Biden did nothing wrong, that Hillary was never involved with the Ukraine, and the only person who ever did anything bad related to Ukraine since The Ukraine was invented is the Bad Orange Man in the White House.

So now we have a layer of media protection atop both Hillary and Crazy Uncle Joe, and Schiff running all over the place claiming a new “obstruction” scandal that supposedly gives the House grounds to impeach the President. All that over a phone call that was clearly a perfectly fine instance of the POTUS conducting U.S. foreign policy as envisioned in the Constitution. It’s as brilliant as it is evil.

Now, there’s nothing real to worry about here, given that the entire case against the President is made up out of whole cloth, exactly as the entire “Russia Collusion” fantasy was. The Democrats aren’t doing any of this out of any real thought they might actually be able to impeach Donald Trump. They’re simply using it as a distraction to protect two of their Party’s most corrupt icons, and in hopes of damaging Trump’s chances at re-election.

It is no accident that all of this arises just as the President’s public approval ratings have again risen above those enjoyed by Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self at the same point during his first term in office. It is also no accident that it all comes up as the Trump economy refuses to cooperate with the Democrat/media’s six-week-long effort to talk us into a recession. I mean, when you have Bloomberg publishing a piece titled, “Hold that Recession: U.S. Indicators are Trouncing Forecasts,” you know that particular ship has run aground.

This latest elaborate bit of Democrat/media theater will likely have a similar lifespan before it has entirely imploded and run its course. It will fail just as all the prior fantasy plays against Trump have failed, because Trump did nothing wrong.

It’s tiresome, but this is all these corrupt, morally-and-intellectually-bankrupt Democrats have. You would think they’d get tired of all the scheming and play-acting at some point, but no, it’s only going to get worse as Election Day 2020 approaches.

This will never end until we stop electing Democrats. It really is that simple.

That is all.

The Fakest Fake Scandal in FakeNews History

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

How fake is the “whistleblower” scandal? The “whistleblower” in question doesn’t even possess first-hand information. – At least, if you believe the Washington Post’s reporting on the matter. This little nugget was buried deep within the bowels of a Saturday WaPo report on the subject:

“The whistleblower didn’t have direct knowledge of the communications, an official briefed on the matter told CNN. Instead, the whistleblower’s concerns came in part from learning information that was not obtained during the course of their work, and those details have played a role in the administration’s determination that the complaint didn’t fit the reporting requirements under the intelligence whistleblower law, the official said.”

Oh. Helps to know facts, doesn’t it? Too bad our fake news media refuses to focus on those facts, preferring instead to harp on the bullsh*t being spread by the Democrat Party.

Here’s another fact: The intelligence whistleblower law everyone keeps referring to doesn’t even apply to the President of the United States in any event. That law applies to people within the intelligence community and their conduct during the course of their jobs. The POTUS is not a part of the “intelligence community.” Attempting to apply it to the President would have huge separation of powers issues, given that the law is designed to give congress oversight related to the intelligence community.

The POTUS is the POTUS. Period. The POTUS has unique constitutional authority to conduct the foreign policy of the United States of America. The conduct of foreign policy includes phone calls with foreign leaders like the one in question in this fake news fake scandal.

Such calls are attended by an array of senior intelligence, State Department and other officials who listen as a matter of course. None of the officials who were actually on the call and actually listened to the conversation lodged any complaint or concern about it. The supposed “whistleblower” – almost certainly a holdover from the Obama administration – has no standing at all here.

This is a fake news fake scandal. Period. It is simply one more in a long line of unending efforts by the Democrats and their media toadies to harm this President and his ability to conduct the nation’s foreign policy. These are subversive, seditious actions by disloyal people who don’t give a damn about the health and survival of this country.

These are Democrats. This is who they are, and what they do.

That is all.

Here is Some Real News the Fake Media Won’t Report

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

While the fake U.S. news media focuses on its latest hit job on President Donald Trump, let’s take a look at the real news they won’t be willing to show you. – First, here are President Trump’s full comments on that #fakenews “scandal” from this morning’s press availability:

As the President points out there, don’t hold your breath waiting for any major mainstream media outlet to fill its readers/viewers in on the real scandal in all of that, since it involved Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, both of whom are part of the protected Democrat class.

And here’s Creepy Uncle Joe admitting he did exactly what the President said he did, in the second clip below:

Don’t expect to see that clip of Biden played anywhere outside of OANN or Fox News.

For a good summary of the full story behind Biden’s abuse of power vis a vis Ukraine, read the piece in The Hill linked below:

Oh, hey, here’s a picture of Greta Thunberg, who has received billions in free media over the last 2 months, dressed up in her Antifa t-shirt. Oh, and both of her parents, too. Isn’t that revealing?

Image may contain: 3 people, people smiling, people standing

Again, don’t expect to see that on CNN or MSNBC or any of the broadcast networks news programs anytime soon. Or ever.

Gosh, here is the latest about major, big-time California Democrat contributor/fundraiser Ed Buck:

Prosecutors: At Least 10 Victims in Ed Buck Sex-and-Overdose Case

Edward Buck appears in Los Angeles Superior Court, Thursday, Sept. 19, 2019, in Los Angeles. The prominent LGBTQ political activist was arrested Tuesday and charged with operating a drug house and providing methamphetamine to a 37-year-old man who overdosed on Sept. 11, but survived, officials said. Two other men have …

Here are some other pictures of Ed Buck, posing with some of his favorite Democrats.:

Don’t expect to see any of those photos or the stories behind them exposed on 60 Minutes, 48 Hours or in the pages of the New York Times.

Here is CBS News, desperately trying to rehabilitate another member of its protected class, leftist Canadian Prime Minister Blackface Trudeau:

I will close this out with some good news, that of a true national treasure, Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale:

Every time the City of Houston has a crisis, Jim McIngvale, owner of the gigantic Gallery Furniture Store in North Houston, steps up to the plate in a big way. In the past several flooding events, he has opened up his huge warehouse to anyone who has been displaced from their homes, and borne most of the costs of keeping them fed, clothed and comfortable for days on end.

This is a wonderful, great American with a giant heart, and President Trump would do well to award him the Presidential Medal of Freedom. He is far more deserving than many of those who have received that honor.

Have a great weekend.

That is all.

Media/Democrats Will Try to Parlay the “Whistleblower” Into Another Special Counsel

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

“Whistleblower” a real crisis? No, just more fake news. – Let’s all understand this latest effort by our fake news media and the deep state to harm President Donald Trump for what it is: A desperate attempt to protect Creepy Uncle Joe Biden and to trump up a pretense for a second special counsel.

Here’s the background: When the Unfrozen Caveman Senator was Vice President for Barack Obama His Own Self back in 2016, he allegedly threatened Ukrainian officials that the U.S. would withhold foreign aid funds unless the government fired a prosecutor general named Viktor Shokin, who was investigating the activities of Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, in that country. Lo and behold, weeks later Shokin was fired and Hunter was home free.

In a recent phone conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, President Trump allegedly asked him to take a look at the issues surrounding that improper action by an American Vice President, as well as other issues surrounding Hunter Biden’s business dealings in that country. Rudy Giuliani admitted on CNN yesterday that he made a similar request on behalf of president Trump earlier this year.

So, which would you consider to be a “scandal” here: A Vice President strong-arming a foreign government to protect his son, or a President asking a foreign government to investigate that Vice President’s obviously improper actions? This is not a hard decision for anyone with any sense of personal ethics.

For our fake news media, acting on behalf of the Democrats and the Deep State, the choice is easy and perverse: Bad Orange Man is bad, Crazy Uncle is good. Thus, Bad Orange Man’s action is the “scandal.”

The Democrats and their media toadies will now attempt to use this request by the President as the next “Russia Collusion” narrative. No fewer than three separate House committees opened investigations into this “scandal” yesterday, demanding documents and testimony they know they will not receive.

You can be sure that calls for a special counsel will come next, perhaps as soon as later today. It’s part of the Deep State Kabuki Theater, after all. If Attorney General William Barr agrees to such a request, then we will know for certain sure he is no different or better than Jeff Sessions.

This is all these people have. It is who they are. This is what desperate animals do. Enjoy the show. I’m going to read a good book.

That is all.

No American Has Any Obligation to be Honest With Our Dishonest Media

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

Lewandowski’s right: No one has any obligation to be honest with a dishonest press. – Writing in The Atlantic, Russell Berman has a pearl-clutching piece about Cory Lewandowski treating Jerrold Nadler’s contemptible fake impeachment hearing yesterday with, well, contempt. Which is exactly what Lewandowski did, and deservedly so.

Berman lays out several examples of Lewandowski’s alleged contempt, and they’re all pretty much accurate. The upper east-side reader base of The Atlantic will all tut-tut and mutter ‘well, I never,’ naturally forgetting how they all cheered when an array of Obama-era officials committed mass perjury before the same committee during 2017-18, when it was chaired by a Republican.

One very interesting exchange Berman whines about came when Lewandowski told Democrat hired consultant Lawfare lawyer Barry Berke that,  “I have no obligation to be honest with the media because they are just as dishonest as anybody else,” a statement that elicited gasps in the hearing room. No doubt most, if not all of those gasps came from members of the media assembled there.

So, here’s the irony of a writer for The Atlantic complaining about Lewandowski’s contempt not just for the Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee, but also for the fake news media: On the same day Berman’s piece was published, the magazine produced another piece, written by the dishonest pair of New York Times reporters who were caught in massive lies about Justice Brett Kavanaugh over the weekend.

As discovered by the great Mollie Hemingway, Senior Editor for The Federalist, The Atlantic’s piece, intended as a free advertisement for the Times’ reporters’ new smear book on Kavanaugh, contains another gigantic whopper. As we pointed out in yesterday’s Campaign Update, the book focuses on an alleged incident during Kavanaugh’s time in college – 38 years ago – in which he supposedly committed a lewd act at a party towards a girl who was supposedly there.

Never mind that the girl in question has no memory of any such incident, or even being at the party – something you would think would stick in her mind into perpetuity. Never mind that the authors end up admitting that they have literally no actual witnesses to the alleged lewd act at all, and base their entire despicable book on pure hearsay that no real journalist would ever dream of citing. This is Brett Kavanaugh, threat to Roe v. Wade, we’re talking about here, so the dragon must be slain by any means possible, even if it requires the commission of conscious journalistic mendacity.

Hemingway exposed the authors for the deceitful hacks they truly are over the weekend, taking less than 24 hours to do so, and now exposes them even further as lying yet again in their Atlantic piece. In that piece, the authors claim that “The people who allegedly witnessed the event—Kavanaugh’s friends Kevin Genda, David Todd, and David White—have kept mum about it.”

That is a straight-up falsehood, as Hemingway details, pointing to a New Yorker piece written about the alleged incident a year ago:

One of the male classmates who Ramirez said egged on Kavanaugh denied any memory of the party. ‘I don’t think Brett would flash himself to Debbie, or anyone, for that matter,’ he said. Asked why he thought Ramirez was making the allegation, he responded, ‘I have no idea.’ The other male classmate who Ramirez said was involved in the incident commented, ‘I have zero recollection.’

In a statement, two of those male classmates who Ramirez alleged were involved in the incident, the wife of a third male student she said was involved, and one other classmate, Dan Murphy, disputed Ramirez’s account of events: ‘We were the people closest to Brett Kavanaugh during his first year at Yale. He was a roommate to some of us, and we spent a great deal of time with him, including in the dorm where this incident allegedly took place. Some of us were also friends with Debbie Ramirez during and after her time at Yale. We can say with confidence that if the incident Debbie alleges ever occurred, we would have seen or heard about it—and we did not.

There’s even more, but you get the gist. The New York Times reporters – who I refuse to name here for the same reason I refuse to name mass killers, because they’re all shameful attention-seekers – at best failed to conduct even the most rudimentary research into the previous reporting by others on this alleged incident. At worst, they simply hoped to cover up the truth about what these supposed witnesses have in fact said about it.

So, this just becomes another in a long, long line of incidents in which “news” outlets like the New York Times and The Atlantic have been caught in blatant efforts to deceive the public about Trump-related officials. It should also be noted that the New Yorker piece referred to by Hemingway was itself revealed to contain a string of falsehoods shortly after it was published.

In the 4 years since Donald Trump announced his presidential candidacy, we have witnessed dozens of incidents – if not hundreds – in which supposed “news” organizations like these three, along with CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS, the Washington Post and many others have published or aired heinously false reports about President Trump, his family, and a vast array of Administration officials and been forced to later sheepishly correct them and even fire the reporters and editors involved.

These are not honest mistakes. These are not oversights or errors in the editing process. These are obvious, intentional efforts to deceive in order to attain a political goal. We know this because the “mistakes” always, without exception, serve to damage the President or anyone connected to him. Honest mistakes would cut both ways.

This is the sorry state of America’s news media today, and it is not getting better over time. If anything, the incidents of outright false reporting are accelerating as the Democrats and their media toadies continue to fail in their efforts to “get” Trump. A sense of rising desperation does that to people.

Given this reality, what possible obligation would Cory Lewandowski or any other American have to deal with such a manifestly dishonest media establishment honestly and truthfully? When you know that anything you say to a reporter is going to be twisted, edited, omitted or taken out of context in order to be made to seem damaging, why worry about honesty? When you know the media outlet you are dealing with cares nothing about facts, why bother with facts?

The press corps can gasp, tsk-tsk and mutter all the “well, I nevers” they want, but this is a situation of their own making. They have made this bed, and now they are lying in it, both figuratively and literally.

Enemies of the people, plain and simple.

That is all.

CBS Exposes a Corrupt New York Times Smear

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

That thing that happens when not everyone is down with the latest smear effort. – The newsfakers at the New York Times made big news of their own on Monday when they were forced by actual journalists to issue a correction to their latest smear story targeting Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

This latest story was penned by two Times fake reporters who have a new book out. Oh, joy! The book rehashes old accusations against Kavanaugh brought forward and rejected as baseless last year, while pretending to add new meat to the bone to one accuser who supposedly claimed that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a party. The fake authors claim in the book to have found 7 “witnesses” who supposedly remember the incident.

Big problem: Not a single one of those seven “witnesses” make any claim to have actually witnessed anything. Only one of them was actually at the party in question and has no specific memory of Kavanaugh being involved in any exposing of anything other than a beer cup. None of the other six were even at the party. Oh.

Wait! It gets better: The alleged “victim” herself has no memory of the “incident” alleged in the book, and refused to even discuss it with the authors. Now, that’s some “journalism” right there, huh?

The fake reporters naturally saved those bits of  key information for very late in the book and made no mention of them in the story they penned for the oh-so accommodating pages of their employer’s fake newspaper. But actual journalists at other media outlets, including Mollie Hemingway at The Federalist, exposed all of this and much more over the weekend, creating a huge blowback towards the Times and its fake reporters and forcing the Times to issue a correction to the story.

This smear effort was so transparent and corrupt that it even had Brit Hume, who has stubbornly avoided calling his colleagues corrupt all these years, finally giving in to unavoidable reality:

But by the time the “correction” was issued, the intended damage to Justice Kavanaugh had already been done, which was the plan all along. For every 100 people who read or heard about the original story, you might have five who read or heard about the correction. This is how our fake news media does these smear campaigns, of course.

Normally, everyone else in the fake news media is fully on-board with smears led by the Times, and never make any effort to inform their readers/viewers of the journalistic mendacity being practiced by the fake newspaper of record. Last night, Jan Crawford at CBS News had apparently had enough of this nonsense.

Crawford, in a report aired on the CBS Evening News, reported on the Times’s correction, and went even further, noting the following:

Oh. Gosh, that’s kind of important information, too, isn’t it? This bit of explosive, real news also gets passing mention in the book by the fake Times reporters, but was naturally excluded from their piece in the Times. The news about Leland Keyser putting the lie to Blasey Ford’s original put-up smear is, in fact, the only real “news” contained in the book at all.

So, here we have the anatomy of the classic fake news media smear as led by the New York Times.

– When your first massive effort to smear the subject during his nominating process failed to bring its desired result, have two of your fakest reporters collaborate on a book that rehashes the original smears but supplements them with “new” information that isn’t new at all.

– When they stumble across one bit of actual real news that would be bombshell evidence of the subject’s actual innocence related to the original smear, bury it in the book and hope no one actually reads it.

– Then have your fake reporters pen a story for your newspaper and make sure they don’t mention the real news in it and exclude key facts that would also serve to exonerate the subject.

– Take that story to print, and when you get caught excluding the key information, wait at least 48 hours before issuing a half-assed “correction” that no one will read.

As long as everyone else in the fake news media is on-board with the new smear effort, you’re golden. Conservative outlets like The Federalist and Fox News don’t matter because your own readers/viewers will just dismiss them out of hand.

Foolproof, right? And CBS news, whose own “news” division is mostly just a bunch of toadies who do little but parrot DNC talking points and rehash stories printed by the Times and the Washington Post each day, is basically the last competing outlet you’d expect to give up the ghost.

But there’s Jan Crawford, bringing the Times’s fake chickens home to roost. Who knows why? Maybe Times Editor Dean Baquet pissed somebody off.

Regardless, good for Ms. Crawford for her decision to be a real journalist, at least for one day. I bet it feels good for her to be reporting the truth for a change.

The Democrat/media propaganda complex is going to need a new smear.

That is all.

What You Need to Know About the Attacks on Saudi Arabia

Today’s Energy Update
(Because Energy Fuels Our Lives)

Crude oil prices closed today up about 15%. They escalated throughout the day as it became increasingly obvious that the production outages in Saudi Arabia will likely continue for weeks, and as rhetoric between the U.S., Iran and Saudi continued to become more heated. How many weeks the Saudi outages will last is anyone’s guess.

You should expect prices to continue to rise until – and if – the situation calms down and we have hard information indicating Saudi production is being restored.

In case you missed my story at Forbes.com linked and excerpted below, this is the largest sudden outage of crude production in world history, even larger than the Arab Oil embargoes of the 1970s.

It’s a big deal.

Excerpt:

Here are a dozen things everyone should know about the past weekend’s strikes on a major Saudi oil refinery, and the likely fallout from them:

  • The Houthis, a rebel army fighting against Saudi-led interests in Yemen, claimed credit for launching the attacks on Saturday. However, the U.S. government now says it believes the assault was launched from Iran, and that it may have involved cruise missiles rather than drones.
  • The strikes centered on Saudi Arabia’s Abqaiq refinery. Abqaiq is the world’s largest oil refinery, processing about two-thirds of the total Saudi supply each day. Saudi Arabia is the world’s second-largest producer of crude oil behind the United States.
  • Several large Saudi oil fields were also attacked. Those attacks, along with the disruption of the Abqaiq refinery required the Saudi government to shut-in about half of its current production, or about 5.7 million barrels of oil per day.
  • According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), that amounts to the single biggest sudden disruption on record, more than the loss of Kuwaiti and Iraqi supply during the Gulf War in August 1990, and the 1979 decrease in Iranian output following the Islamic Revolution.
