Business Roundtable Issues a Giant Virtue Signal

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

And you thought virtue signaling was just for c-list celebrities and politicians on Twitter. – In what is perhaps the biggest collective virtue signal in American history, the CEOs of 180 U.S. companies issued a “statement of purpose” yesterday in which they claim that corporations should prioritize social responsibility over profits.

Investors who actually want to see a return on their investment no doubt were somewhat surprised to know that these members of the Business Roundtable, led by J.P. Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon, now have a higher priority than ensuring their companies’ profitability. If I were an employee at any of the companies – which include such giants as Amazon and American Airlines – I’d probably be updating my resume’ this morning in anticipation of the layoffs to come as my company spirals into irrelevance.

Ok, not really. Look, this entire thing is a massive charade, a cynical dodge issued by a bunch of CEOs who are under assault from left-wing activist “investor” groups. These CEOs don’t really mean any of this, they just believe that their virtue-signaling can placate the radical leftists. Which is an incredibly stupid thought process, to be honest, but it’s a mistake corporate leaders in the U.S. keep making over and over and over again.

For gosh sakes, the only reason for any corporation to be in business is to make a profit. Do they have an obligation to be socially responsible in many ways during the course of generating profits? Sure. That’s what thousands of the laws and regulations they must comply with every day are designed to effect.

Beyond adhering to the letter and spirit of those laws and regulations, does any corporation have any further obligation to society at large? Hell, no. To the extent these companies go over and above that baseline, with charitable foundations and involvement in community programs and the like, the smart ones are careful to ensure they do not do so in a way that destroys shareholder value. Because at the end of the day, without the buy-in of those shareholders, those corporations will cease to exist.

Businesses are not the government, nor are they charitable organizations, and we don’t want them to be. Because the moment a business tries to become something else and loses its focus on the reason why it is in business in the first place, that business is going to begin to fall apart.

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is one of the signatories to this “statement.” If he were to truly follow through with prioritizing social responsibility over profits, those packages you enjoy reliably receiving the next day will soon take 3 days to arrive, then 7 days, and eventually they won’t show up at all.

Amazon is a business. It’s leadership must retain a hyper-focus on its business and on maintaining its profitability. The moment Bezos and his leadership team loses that focus will be the moment the business begins to fall apart.

The presence of American Airlines on this letter is frankly shocking, given the long-term, chronic profitability struggles it and all other U.S. airline companies have gone through for decades. American’s business is a far more vital one than Amazon’s: It’s job is to safely transport hundreds of thousands of passengers each and every day from one city to another in gigantic aluminum tubes with wings flying at 35,000 feet.

Trust me: We want American and all other airlines to keep a myopic focus on their business, not on supporting whatever politically correct cause is popular at any given time with 22 year-olds who spend 20 hours a day on Twitter. The moment any airline loses its focus on what really is Job One is the moment passengers’ lives become endangered.

But again, the good news here is that this entire thing is a massive charade, a meaningless gesture that is simply a lame attempt to placate a leftist mob. The Business Roundtable leaders are making the same mistake made by hundreds of celebrities who make some non-politically correct remark in thinking that they can placate the mob by essentially apologizing to it.

It won’t work. Gestures like this only legitimize the mob and end up emboldening them. Can’t wait to see what politically-correct move these CEOs make next year, after their companies find themselves under even more intense assault by the mob they emboldened yesterday.

Good luck with all that, Jamie and Jeff.

That is all.

The Democrats Demand Their Recession!

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

As you watch the Democrats and their fake news media toadies attempt to convince Americans we are in a recession when the economy is in fact booming, remember they have done this all before. – This is just page 284 or something from the Democrat/media playbook, and as George H.W. Bush found out the hard way in 1991-2, the effort has succeeded before.

Not that Poppy Bush deserved to be re-elected in 1992 after reneging on his “read my lips, no new taxes” promise to the voters, but the main reason why he lost that election was because most voters went to the polls convinced that an economy that was humming right along was in fact in a recession. That mis-perception was 100% due to the massive brainwashing campaign that had been mounted by the Democrat/media propaganda complex for 15 solid months leading up to election day.

So, if you’re wondering why each and every one of the Sunday morning opinion shows focused on the “are we in a recession?” fake topic, rest assured that was no coincidence. With the whole “Russia collusion” hoax having miserably failed, the Democrat/media complex is just going through their handy playbook, tossing stuff up against the wall to see if any of it will stick.

It won’t stick this time, for one key reason: In 1991, the country did go through a very brief, very modest recession. That was the “hook,” complete with actual data, that afforded the brainwashing effort a shred of credibility. The brain-washers do not enjoy any similar luxury today, as the Trump economy, with its full employment, low inflation and high wage growth rates has given us strong GDP growth for two uninterrupted years now.

What they are engaged in today is an audacious effort to destroy consumer confidence, because they understand that we have a consumption-based economy. No kidding – these people cringe and become angry when they see the strong consumer confidence numbers published each month, so they are literally attempting to tank the U.S. economy.

Yes, it’s despicable. Yes, it’s disgraceful. Yes, it is disgusting. But hey, these are Democrats we’re talking about here – you expected something else?

Speaking of despicable, disgraceful and disgusting, how about that New York Times, huh? – In case you missed it, New York Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet got caught on audio admitting that his fake news publication had literally built its staff to promote the “Russia collusion” story, and is now regrouping because, in his words, “the story has changed” to racism.

But of course, as we have known now for two solid years, the story never changed at all: “Russia collusion” was a massive hoax from day one, and everyone involved knew it was a hoax, including Baquet and his tailor-made staff at the New York Times. What has actually changed this year is that the vaunted Mueller Report failed to support the hoax, humiliating the Times, and all the myriad other fake news organizations that had pushed the hoax on behalf of the Democrat Party beginning in mid-2016.

Or as Baquet put it:

The closest Baquet came to identifying a moment when the paper had misjudged current events was when he described it as being “a little tiny bit flat-footed” after the Mueller investigation ended. “Our readers who want Donald Trump to go away suddenly thought, ‘Holy shit, Bob Mueller is not going to do it,’” Baquet said.

Oh.

So, what is a professional propagandist to do when he has been caught “a little tiny bit flat-footed” promoting one hoax? Why, move on to promoting another hoax, of course.

Thus it was that, in the same town hall meeting in which the admissions above were made, Baquet promised to re-tool his staff and his fake newspaper’s overarching narrative to now focus on how everything in American life is about racism:

 “How do we cover America, that’s become so divided by Donald Trump?” he said. “How do we grapple with all the stuff you all are talking about? How do we write about race in a thoughtful way, something we haven’t done in a large way in a long time?”

“We built our newsroom to cover one story, and we did it truly well. Now we have to regroup, and shift resources and emphasis to take on a different story. I’d love your help with that. As Audra Burch said when I talked to her this weekend, this one is a story about what it means to be an American in 2019. It is a story that requires deep investigation into people who peddle hatred, but it is also a story that requires imaginative use of all our muscles to write about race and class in a deeper way than we have in years. In the coming weeks, we’ll be assigning some new people to politics who can offer different ways of looking at the world. We’ll also ask reporters to write more deeply about the country, race, and other divisions. I really want your help in navigating this story.”

But never fear, Deplorables, because the New York Times is now supposedly going to make an effort to “understand” you, something any responsible news organ might have attempted to do in 2015:

The same newspaper that this week will publish the 1619 Project, the most ambitious examination of the legacy of slavery ever undertaken in [inaudible] newspaper, to try to understand the forces that led to the election of Donald Trump. And that means trying to understand the segment of America that probably does not read us.

Rest assured that the only attempt to “understand” that segment of America will simply be to support the Democrat narrative that each and every one of them is a racist.

This is both hilarious, and sad. Hilarious that the newspaper that sets the coverage tone for the rest of the Democrat-toady fake news media truly cannot imagine that 95% of Americans simply do not focus on a person’s race in their everyday lives like everyone on the New York Times staff obviously does. Sad because this is so awfully representative of the sorry, tattered state of the U.S. news media today.

The True Face of Antifa is Too Ugly for Words

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

The fake news hacks at The Oregonian won’t report it, but here’s what the real face of Antifa actually looked like during its’ latest riot in Portland, Oregon on Saturday [Hat tip to Mr. Andy Ngo, that rarest of rare animals in America today: a real, actual journalist.]:

Too ugly for words.

Media Coverage of Portland Melee Raises Bias to New Heights

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

Here’s an actual quote from Bernie Sanders yesterday:   “We have a president who is a racist, who is a bigot, who is a sexist, who is a homophobe, and Islamophobe…and what we will not allow him to do is to divide us based on our skin color and our gender.”

Oh. Okay. *sigh*

Here is how The Oregonian fake newspaper led its coverage of yesterday’s stupid clash between the Proud Boys and the violent terrorist group Antifa: “Right-wing activists and those protesting their presence converged Saturday on Portland’s downtown waterfront in a much-anticipated confrontation that captivated a nation inflamed by rising division and resentment, with even President Donald Trump entering the Fray.”

Let’s break that disgustingly amateurish and biased paragraph down. First, the Proud Boys are accurately identified as right-wing activists. That’s what they are. Good start.

Second, the ultra-violent fascism-promoting hate group Antifa is not even identified by name, but as “those protesting their presence”. Gosh, biased much? Did an Antifa leader write this damn article? Or maybe Portland’s Mayor, who might as well be an Antifa leader?

Third, we have this: “…a much-anticipated confrontation that captivated a nation inflamed by rising division and resentment…”. Really? Captivated a nation? Funny, we were out and about most of the day Saturday and didn’t encounter a single person who wanted to ask our opinion of the “confrontation” of these two groups of slugs. Didn’t see a single TV tuned to any channel covering the mindlessly stupid event. Nor did we encounter a single person who seemed at all “inflamed” by “division” or “resentment.” Seems like the Antifa-hugging author of this absurd paragraph is engaging in a little projection.

Finally, let’s analyze this: “…with even President Donald Trump entering the Fray.” Really? The President of the United States was in Portland, Oregon on Saturday? That’s odd, given that multiple reports in our fake news media pegged him being somewhere else. Like at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey.

And let’s look at that final word: Why is “Fray” capitalized? Is the park where the competing groups of doofuses confronted each other named “the Fray”? Or maybe there was a rock band called “the Fray” playing in the park and President Trump showed up to play bass guitar for them?

Or maybe, just maybe, the Oregonian employs proofreaders who are as utterly dim and incompetent as the author of the piece and the editors who approved it? Yeah, that seems right.

Look, the Oregonian and its unbelievably biased coverage are part of the problem in Portland, as big a part as radical leftist Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler’s behavior is. This “coverage” reads like a promotional piece for a hate group that is on the verge of receiving a formal “terror group” designation by the federal government. Absurd media promotional pieces like this only serve to encourage their activities in the same way as Wheeler’s refusal to allow Portland’s police department to enforce the law during Antifa’s frequent riots held within Portland’s friendly confines.

This is what happens when cities are run exclusively by leftist Democrats (pardon my redundancy) for decades, as Baltimore and Chicago and Detroit and Philadelphia and San Francisco and Los Angeles and so many other beaten-down large U.S. cities can attest. But hey, Wheeler and his fellow Marxists are the leadership the voters elected, and will no doubt re-elect again and again and again in the coming years.

Within a decade, Portland, Oregon will become the same kind of hollowed-out shell that Baltimore is today. Because that’s what Democrats and their cheerleaders in the press are good at creating.

That is all.

Trump’s New Hampshire Rally Shows Why His Opponents Are So Desperate

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

You may have been wondering why your support for Donald Trump has suddenly resulted in your being labeled a “white supremacist.” Doesn’t matter whether you happen to actually be white, or whether you are latino, black, male, female or one of the other mythical genders now being invented by the political left, if you support the sitting President of the United States of America, that means you will be labeled a “white supremacist” by the Democrats and our fake news media.

Don’t laugh at the notion that President Trump actually has Latino and Black supporters: A just-released Zogby poll shows the President’s support among those two demographics rising substantially in response to the ongoing “white supremacist” campaign. According to Zogby, 28% of registered Black voters and fully 49% of registered Latinos approve of Trump’s job performance.

Which of course is one more reason why the Democrats and their media toadies are frantically attempting to marginalize you as being some sort of inhuman monster. If the President were to win just 30% of Latino votes (he won 28% in 2016) and maybe 12% of the Black vote (he got 6% in 2016) next year, he will be re-elected in a massive landslide, and sweep in new, larger majorities in both houses of congress with him.

The Democrats cannot countenance that, so they believe they can counteract that growing public approval rating by labeling the President as a hater of Latinos and Blacks. But because ordinary Americans are not nearly as stupid as Democrats invariably assume them to be, this transparently cynical strategy is backfiring.

If you can remember all the way back to last week, Democrat members of congress and presidential candidates like Joaquin Castro (a guy who doxxes his own supporters), the pathetic Irish Bob O’Rourke, and Spartacus Booker rushed to argue that because Trump was a racist bigot who literally caused the mass shootings in Dayton and El Paso, why, that means he simply must cancel all future rallies like the one we saw Thursday night in New Hampshire.

Why do you suppose they would make such an outlandishly laughable leap of logic? Because they know just how effective those rallies happen to be, and understand how critical they are to the President’s chances of being re-elected. Other than his Twitter feed, those rallies are the only means President Trump has of cutting through the fake news media fog and talking directly to the American people.

But, you might be thinking, how does that work, since the only media outlet that televises the rallies is Fox News? New York Times best-selling author Larry Schweikart answered that question in his book – co-authored with Joel Pollak – “How Trump Won”:

[I’m not active on Twitter anymore, but if you are and you aren’t following @LarrySchweikart and @joelpollak, you are missing out.]

Note what Larry says in that tweet: “the main value of the rallies was NOT Trump speaking to those in attendance but the local news coverage into large regions that allowed Trump to get his message out in short bursts without national anti-Trump ‘panels’ commenting.”  Bingo.

The President doesn’t really care that CNN and MSNBC don’t televise his rallies, in part because their audiences are rapidly shrinking since their “muh Russia collusion” narrative crashed up on the shoals of the Mueller Report, and in part because anyone watching those two fake news networks is already completely brainwashed anyway.

What Trump cares about is that he spoke to 12,000 New Hampshire voters Thursday night, and anyone who draws a crowd of 12,000 in New Hampshire is going to get gobs of coverage on every local newscast in the state. That coverage is going to largely consist of out-takes of key messages from his speech. That is an incredibly valuable means of influencing hundreds of thousands more potential voters.

Note also that, while Schweikart and Pollak say the local coverage is the “main value” of the rallies, they do not say that the attendance at the rallies is not important as well. Quite the contrary: The President spoke to more individual voters in that arena last night than any of the Democrat candidates have spoken to through the course of their entire campaigns at this point.

Even more valuable, every one of those 12,000 potential voters left that arena pumped up and ready to go try to convince their friends and family to vote for Trump. They’ll all be talking for weeks and months about the excitement he generated in that arena.

So, you wonder why you are suddenly being labeled a “white supremacist,” an inhuman monster who must be shunned and punished? It’s because if you are just a regular patriotic American who loves your country and wants it to be great again, then the Democrats have literally no hope of defeating you and President Trump in 2020.

It really is that simple.

That is all.

Remembering the Great Inversion Recession of August 14, 2019

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

Hey, remember that day when we were going to have a huge economic recession because of the inverted yield curves? – You remember that – it was, like, Wednesday, right?

For an entire day, our mainstream “news” media focused on pretty much nothing else. The yield curves had inverted and by golly that meant we were about to have a massive recession!!!!!! Why, it was just around the corner!!!! Or maybe – just maybe, all the fake journalists reported with bated breath – we’re already in it!!!!!!  Oh, happy days are here again!

But then, on Thursday, those pesky yield curves de-inverted, Wal-Mart had a fantastic earnings report, and consumer spending – which happens to account for about 2/3rds of the U.S. economy – blasted past projections by the always-wrong “experts”, with growth for July coming in at .7 percent, more than double the estimates of .3 percent.

Suddenly, the Great Inversion Recession of 2019 had come to an end. But what a 24 hours it was! Why, every leftwing journalist in America (which is about 95% of all journalists in America) spent the day in ecstasy. A recession is coming! Every pundit who has spent the last four years claiming every random event is “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump” suddenly felt vindicated.  “At last, I’m right!” they all thought, “It only took me 1,223 tries!”

But no, they were all wrong again. The Trump economy just keeps steaming along, doing all those things that leftist journalists feel are terrible, things like creating full-time, good-paying jobs for every class of American, bringing actual manufacturing back to our economy, creating trillions of dollars of wealth for ordinary Americans who the Democrats all want to be lifetime government dependents, and marginalizing the Chinese economy that every Democrat and leftist journalist in America has spent years hoping would ultimately overtake our own, thus relegating America to the second-tier status it, in their warped minds, deserves.

Sorry. No recession. The Great Inversion Recession of August 14, 2019 turned out to be just another diversion by our fake news media, an excuse to avoid doing any real reporting on matters that reflect badly on their Democrat heroes. Call it the Inversion Diversion.

Think of what a sad existence it must be to spend your every waking hour actively hoping to be able to report bad news for your fellow Americans. When Bill Mahr said on his show the other night that he is actively hoping for a recession between now and next November because he thinks that’s the only way President Donald Trump can be defeated in his bid for re-election, he was just expressing the hopes and desires being quietly held by pretty much everyone on the American left.

So what if a recession puts millions of Americans out of work? Why, Elizabeth Warren will gladly create an array of new multi-trillion dollar programs with money borrowed from our grandchildren that will be designed to ensure that those millions of Americans become lifetime dependents on government largess, and thus, reliable Democrat voters. And all of those babbling heads you see on CNN and MSNBC every night will be thrilled to death with that result.

That was what Wednesday’s feeding frenzy of joyful “the Great Inversion Recession is Coming!” reporting was all about.

But this morning, all of those millions of Americans were still able to get up and go to work, thanks to the Trump economy.

Too bad, so sad for everyone at CNN, MSNBC and the New York Times, but another great day of WINNING for normal Americans.

That is all.

Jeffrey Epstein Associate Ghislain Maxwell Prefers In-N-Out

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

No kidding. Turns out the rumors running around about Jeffrey Epstein’s associate and alleged procurer Ghislaine Maxwell hiding out somewhere in France were just more bad rumors.

As reported by the New York Post, she’s actually in LA, and was caught dining at an In-N-Out Burger on Monday by an enterprising regular who snapped a shot of her. Hilariously, the Post’s tattle-tale source said she was reading a book titled “The Book of Honor: The Secret Lives and Deaths of CIA Operatives.”

Because of course that was the book she was reading. Right? Right.

More from the Post story:

Maxwell reportedly recruited underage girls for Epstein and participated in their abuse. At least two women who accused Epstein of sexually abusing them sued Maxwell in 2015, alleging she launched a campaign to damage their reputations and discredit their allegations.

A new front in the Epstein case opened Wednesday morning as his accuser, Jennifer Araoz, filed a lawsuit against his estate, Maxwell and three unnamed female household staff members.

And this:

Once spotted, Maxwell — who was sitting alone with a pet pooch — told an onlooker: “Well, I guess this is the last time I’ll be eating here!”

You seriously can’t make this stuff up, folks.

Police and the FBI have reportedly been scouring the globe for Maxwell, hoping to secure her testimony in the still-ongoing case involving Epstein. Hopefully the Keystone Cops who couldn’t be bothered to keep their star suspect alive will have someone monitoring the New York Post and will now redirect their intrepid investigative expertise towards California.

Hooboy.

That is all.

Media/Democrat non-Crisis Crisis of the Day: Israel Bans Omar and Tlaib

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

The Democrats and their toadies in the mainstream news media are going berserk again today. – No, that’s not the news here; after all, that just happens pretty much every day. The media, after all, must have some non-crisis crisis to obsess over in order to avoid reporting any of the myriad real news that reflects badly on the Democrats.

The non-crisis crisis for today is that Israel, let by its Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, today barred raging anti-Semitic congresswomen Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan from traveling to their country. Since pretty much no media outlet will reproduce Netanyahu’s statement and reasoning in full, I’ll start by doing it here:

No country in the world respects America and the American Congress more than the State of Israel. As a free and vibrant democracy, Israel is open to critics and criticism with one exception: Israeli law prohibits the entry into Israel of those who call for and work to impose boycotts on Israel, as do other democracies that prohibit the entry of people who seek to harm the country.

In fact, in the past the US did this to an Israeli member of Knesset, as well as to other public figures from around the world. Congresswomen Tlaib and Omar are leading activists in promoting the legislation of boycotts against Israel in the American Congress. Only a few days ago, we received their itinerary for their visit in Israel, which revealed that they planned a visit whose sole objective is to strengthen the boycott against us and deny Israel’s legitimacy.

For instance: they listed the destination of their trip as Palestine and not Israel, and unlike all Democratic and Republican members of Congress who have visited Israel, they did not request to meet any Israeli officials, either from the government or the opposition.

A week ago, Israel warmly welcomed some 70 Democratic and Republican members of Congress, who expressed broad bipartisan support for Israel, which was also demonstrated a month ago in a resounding bipartisan vote against BDS in Congress. However, the itinerary of the two Congresswomen reveals that the sole purpose of their visit is to harm Israel and increase incitement against it.

In addition, the organization that is funding their trip is Miftah, which is an avid supporter of BDS, and among whose members are those who have expressed support for terrorism against Israel.

Therefore, the minister of interior has decided not to allow their visit, and I, as prime minister, support his decision. Nonetheless, if Congresswoman Tlaib submits a humanitarian request to visit her relatives, the minister of interior has announced that he will consider her request on the condition that she pledges not to act to promote boycotts against Israel during her visit.

All emphasis added is mine.

Now, there is absolutely nothing untrue or unreasonable in that statement. Not one sentence. These two members of congress long ago revealed themselves to be raging anti-Semites, and have avidly and vocally supported various terrorist-supporting groups here in the U.S., as well as the BDS movement.

But the Democrat Party and its media toadies, who always circle the wagons around any Democrat who ever receives any kind of public criticism, have predictably circled the wagons around these two and done everything they can to normalize their anti-Semitic behavior in the public’s consciousness. As a result of that focused normalization effort, they have no choice today but to go berserk and attack Netanyahu, Israel and President Trump, who voiced his approval of Netanyahu’s move on Twitter:

The marvel in all of this is that, despite the blatant and growing anti-Semitism in the Democrat Party, a large portion of the American Jewish population will continue to vote Democrat in the upcoming 2020 elections. One of the most inexplicable ongoing political dynamics in U.S. society, kind of like the down-trodden citizens of Baltimore continuing to re-elect Elijah Cummings every two years.

Anyway, Israel standing up for itself in the face of two rank anti-Semites is today’s non-crisis crisis. Can’t wait to see what the media comes up with for tomorrow.

That is all.

Broken Bones in Epstein’s Neck? Totally normal. Nothing to See Here.

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

The case just isn’t cooperating with the whole “suicide” narrative. – The Washington Post reported last night that the autopsy of human trafficking pedophile Jeffrey Epstein found “multiple broken bones” in his neck.

That was revealed in the story’s opening paragraph. The Post of course spends the rest of this 25-paragraph piece doing everything it can to continue to prop up the “suicide” narrative. The dying newspaper’s writers and editors do this by carefully focusing only on the broken hyoid bone, which is a part of a man’s Adam’s Apple. The piece never again even mentions the fact that “multiple” bones were broken, nor does it specify which bones those might be. It’s as if that word, “multiple”, has no meaning and is to be ignored.

The writers and editors focus on the hyoid bone because it has been found to have been broken in a small percentage of actual, real hanging cases. The problem here is that, even if the official narrative is to be believed, Epstein could not have really “hanged” himself in the traditional sense of that word. In an actual hanging, the victim would be found dangling with his feet off the ground from a rope that had been strung through a light fixture or otherwise attached to the ceiling of the cell.

Big problem: Epstein’s cell had no means of doing that. The official narrative claims he hanged himself using a sheet he strung through the rail of the top bunk, which sits barely 5 feet off the floor. The narrative contends he then got on his knees and slowly strangled himself using that sheet around his neck. Now, the Washington Post wants you to believe that he was able to kneel forward with such force that he not only strangled to death, he also broke not only his hyoid bone, as well as  “multiple” other bones in his neck in doing so.

How did he do all of that? How did he maintain that intense pressure on his neck – which would have required an intense physical effort – without the human “will to live” impulse kicking in? Did he somehow bind his own hands to prevent that from happening? If not, how did he maintain that intense effort until he actually expired?

The most unintentionally hilarious part of the Post’s article is the claim that the autopsy report has created  “deepening questions around his death.” The problem our society has is that no one at the Washington Post or 99% of our mainstream news media is asking those questions.

There is no demand emanating from the halls of the Post or the New York Times or CNN or MSNBC or any other major “news” organ in America for Attorney General William Barr or FBI Director Christopher Wray or even for whatever moron heads up the Bureau of Prisons to hold a press conference and give our intrepid public watchdogs in the press a full accounting of the progress of the case. They’re all too busy obsessing over Beto O’Rourke’s latest re-boot of his campaign and Bernie Sanders’ interview with Cardi B to be worried about any of that.

The problem, of course, is that our fake news media organs have invested the last three years covering up for the seditious actions of the Obama-era FBI and DOJ, in the process building a narrative that these federal agencies are to always be trusted and can do no wrong. They’ve spent the last three years trying to brainwash the public to take whatever the likes of James Comey and Peter Strzok and Andrew McCabe and Rod Rosenstein have to say as the gospel truth – even going so far as to hire the disgraced McCabe as a paid contributor at CNN – and as a result, it has become incredibly hard to now just turn on a dime and express some healthy skepticism about the veracity of the official narrative.

In other words, once a news agency has willingly turned itself into a government lapdog, it’s pretty hard to un-train that behavior. Maybe impossible.

And so we get reports like this one from the Washington Post.

That’s where we are in our society today.

That is all.
