Jake Tapper: Straight Man to Democrat Smear Merchants

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

CNN’s Jake Tapper is a raging, unbridled hypocrite. Tapper loves to strike the pose of an old-fashioned, intrepid reporter doggedly going after the truth, and occasionally actually even asks a semi-tough question of a Democrat guest, though never with any attempt at follow up when the Democrat inevitably lies or deflects in their response.

The truth is that Tapper runs one of the most absurdly-biased shows on television, one that has spent the past four-plus years relentlessly pushing every bizarre smear and conspiracy theory the Democrats have concocted against President Donald Trump and members of his administration. Tapper is just another of CNN’s lineup of shameless Democrat toadies, and everyone knows it.

Thus, it was richly ironic and frankly telling on Sunday when Tapper, seemingly out of the blue, ripped off a completely unhinged, 2-minute diatribe about an “unprecedented smear campaign” that the Trump campaign is mounting against Joe Biden, fellow Democrats, and smear merchants like himself in the media. Tapper then followed his TV diatribe with tweets that said the following:

President Trump and his team are launching an unprecedented smear campaign against rivals, leveling wild and false allegations against critics in the media and politics, ranging from bizarre conspiracy theories to spreading lies about pedophilia and even murder. 1/

2/ These smear campaigns are unmoored from reality. They’re deranged and indecent and seem designed at least in part to distract us from the horrific death, health, and economic crisis caused by the pandemic. The pandemic, which impacts you, is what we will continue to focus on.

[End]

You have to love that last sentence, claiming that his show is just focused like a laser on the pandemic, thus implying that that is how he has always conducted his program. Literally nothing could be farther from the truth; but hey, that’s the CNN way.

Tapper has used his program for four solid years to actively promote the “Russia collusion” conspiracy theory, a theory that has now been completely debunked by the Mueller Report and a series of DOJ Inspector General reports. That truly unprecedented, massive smear was long ago revealed to have been concocted by the Pantsuit Princess Campaign working in conjunction with the Obama administration and willing dupes in the mainstream news media. Tapper was in fact one of the primary media dupes most guilty of willingly supporting this hoax. Yet, Tapper has never taken even a moment to reflect and offer an apology to his viewers, or even an acknowledgment of his own role in pushing that smear and attempted coup d’etat on American soil, which is what any serious journalist would have done.

For over a year, Tapper repeatedly provided a platform on his show for Michael Avenatti, the creepy porn lawyer who was pushing another smear and conspiracy theory targeting President Trump. That one involved Avenatti’s client, porn star Stormy Daniels, who Avenatti ended up bilking out of over a million dollars before he himself ended up in prison. Tapper, who at one point even spoke of Avenatti as a serious contender for the 2020 Democrat presidential nomination, has never taken a second to apologize to his viewers for his role in pushing this smear.

Nor has Tapper ever offered an apology for helping Avenatti push yet another smear, this time when he brought forward a clearly mentally deranged woman who hurled bizarre, completely-unsupported accusations at Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Again, Tapper played the willing propagandist for Avenatti’s conspiracy smear of a good man.

Tapper also used his program for six solid months last year through February of this year providing a platform for Democrats pushing still another conspiracy theory smear involving President Trump and the Ukraine. That smear, which we quickly discovered was concocted out of whole cloth by congressional Democrats led by the utterly corrupt Adam Schiff, occupied the national government’s attention while China was spreading the Wuhan Virus to our shores. Tapper has never taken a moment to apologize to his viewers for his role keeping them distracted on that particular Democrat hoax.

Speaking of Schiff, Tapper has also used his program as a platform for Schiff to spread his poisonous lies about all of the unprecedented smears mentioned above and more. Through all of Schiff’s dozens appearances on his program, Tapper has never once attempted to hold the pathological California congressman accountable in any way for his myriad obvious falsehoods.

Truly, America has seen no more consistent, dedicated smear and conspiracy merchant in its history than Jake Tapper. Thus, being the good little Democrat agent that he is, he naturally engages in the Clintonian/Alinskyite practice of projection, hurling the accusation at his enemies in the Republican Party.

What appeared to set Tapper off was the fact that Donald Trump, Jr. re-tweeted a video that mashes up a dozen or more instances of Joe Biden inappropriately touching, sniffing and caressing little girls and women at public events over the past 10 years. The videos of these instances have not been altered in any way, and simply show Biden being Biden. But true to his unerring form as a CNN propagandist for the Democrat Party, Tapper’s outrage is not with the creepy old man who clearly has a predatory issue going on, but with the member of the Trump family who retweeted it.

I would say Tapper is the worst such propagandist working today, but the truth is that he’s kind of middle-of-the-road in a profession that includes such luminaries as Brian Stelter, Fredo Cuomo, Lawrence O’Donnell and Rachel Maddow.

Sunday’s tantrum appears to have been an effort by Tapper to break out of that low-rent pack. With Avenatti in prison and Schiff apparently shying away from media engagement in light of all the recent revelations about his serial mendacity, that’s going to be hard to do. After all, Fake Jake is always at his propagandist best when playing the straight man to a Democrat smear merchant.

That is all.

Cirque du Trump: It’s the Greatest Show on Earth

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

I swear I do not make this stuff up. Who could? – You could never make it up – never in a million billion gazillion years.

I kid you not: The President of the United States of by-God America was asked by some doofus reporter yesterday evening if he was planning to pardon…wait for it…oh, you have to wait for this one…JOE freakin’ EXOTIC!!! Yes, this guy:

What life is like for Joe Exotic in jail

You don’t have to believe me, you only have to believe your lyin’ eyes and ears:

Reporter: These ratings hits, aside from these briefings, there’s a show that’s called “Tiger King,” and the man who’s the star of this is a former zoo owner who is serving a 22-year prison sentence. He’s asking you for a pardon, saying he was unfairly convicted. Your son yesterday jokingly said he was going to advocate for it. I was wondering if you’d seen the show and if you have any thoughts on it, pardoning Joe Exotic.

Trump: Which son? [smiling] Must be Don.

Reporter: It was.

Trump: [smiling] I had a feeling it was Don. Is that what he said? I don’t know, I know nothing about it. 22 years for what? What did he do?

Reporter: He allegedly hired someone to murder an animal rights activist. He said he didn’t do that and he was, uh…

Trump: You think he didn’t do it? Are you on his side?

Reporter: Well, I…

Trump: Are you recommending a pardon?

Reporter: Ah, no, I’m not advocating anything like that…

Trump: As a reporter, you’re not allowed to do that. You’d be criticized by these…[points at Acosta] Would you recommend a pardon?

Acosta: Uh, I’m not weighing in on Tiger King…

Trump: I wouldn’t think you would, I don’t think you would. Go ahead, you have a question. [To first reporter] I’ll take a look.

Acosta: I do like Joe Exotic [well, of course he does]

Trump: [Reporter on front row holds up an image of Joe Exotic on his I-phone] Is that Joe Exotic? That’s Joe Exotic?

Acosta: Uh, let me get back to the coronavirus, Mr. President.

Trump: Yeah.

[End]

It’s the Greatest Show on Earth, folks. We are truly blessed to live in this day and time.

Meanwhile, in other, less entertaining news… – President Trump has a new White House Press Secretary, not that it really matters.

In case you missed it – and you can certainly be excused for doing so – Stephanie Grisham, who barely ever showed her face before the media during her brief time in the job, went back to serving as press spokesman for First Lady Melania Trump on Tuesday. Stepping into the job of White House Press Secretary will now be Kayleigh McEnany, a longtime communications expert who has most recently been serving in a similar role for the Trump 2020 re-election campaign.

Kayleigh McEnany - Wikipedia

As polished as Ms. McEnany is as a spokesperson, you will likely not be seeing too much of her in this role, much like Ms. Grisham. This is not a criticism of either woman, both of whom are perfectly capable of handling the pack of hyenas who make up the White House press corps.

President Trump, after watching Sarah Huckabee Sanders being abused and smeared by these clowns for a year and a half, decided early last year to simply become his own spokesman, and turn the White House Press Secretary’s job into more of a role of herding the media cats.

That has been a brilliant and highly productive move. Trump has, without any question at all, since become the most accessible president in the nation’s history since making that transition, often holding multiple press availabilities each day. He been so accessible during the course of defending the nation against China’s Wuhan Virus attack that he now has the petulant creeps on MSNBC and CNN whining every day that he has become too accessible. I kid you not: The coordinated talking point among the cable TV talking heads on Tuesday and Wednesday was that “the President has hijacked these Task Force press briefings.”

Think about that: This President is now literally being accused by corrupt media personalities of “hijacking” his own damn press conferences.

That’s how good he is at dealing with these shameless nitwits. He has them so discombobulated that they are utterly incapable of hitting back in any non-hysterical way.

It’s a beautiful thing to watch. As the President himself would say, ‘it’s the most beautiful thing we’ve ever seen. Many people are talking about it being such a great thing. No one’s ever seen anything like it.’ And he’d be right.

Enjoy it while you can, and work hard to make sure you get to continue enjoying it for four more years.

That is all.

Robert Mueller’s Big Bag of Nothing Springs Another Leak

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

Oh, that report was fake news? You don’t say. –  After having spent the last year and a half slandering Donald Trump, Jr. and his father, President Donald Trump, alleging that telephone records somehow showed that Trump, Jr. had called his father just prior to his famous meeting with several Russian nationals at Trump Tower in October of 2016, the news fakers at CNN scrambled to cover their filthy tracks yesterday. The implication of course being that then-Candidate Trump was fully aware in advance of this meeting and approved of it, something President Trump has consistently denied.

In a story hilariously headlined as being somehow “Exclusive”, CNN meekly informed its tiny online audience that “Senate investigators have obtained new information showing Donald Trump Jr.’s mysterious phone calls ahead of the 2016 Trump Tower meeting were not with his father, three sources with knowledge of the matter told CNN.”

Oh.  You don’t say. Tell us more.

“Records provided to the Senate Intelligence Committee show the calls were between Trump Jr. and two of his business associates, the sources said, and appear to contradict Democrats’ long-held suspicions that the blocked number was from then-candidate Donald Trump.”

You have to love the phrasing there. To be clear and actually honest – in direct contrast to CNN’s daily practices – it isn’t just the “Democrats” who have been promoting the massive lies about what was a simple and completely legal meeting in which Trump, Jr. and a few others working on the Trump Campaign thought they might get some intel on their Democrat opponents. CNN digital and on-air personnel have been happily and incessantly doing the same for a year and a half now.

And it hasn’t been limited to CNN, oh, no. We’ve seen the same sort of yellow fake journalism about this meeting from the New York Times, the Washington Post, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC and the whole of the fake news media establishment – a literal orgy of fake news gluttony about a single 40-minute meeting, the type of which any presidential campaign is going to conduct with outside sources several times a week.

Meanwhile, these same fake media outlets have to literally be forced into superficially mentioning the fact that the Pantsuit Princess’s campaign and the DNC shelled out MILLIONS of dollars paying the Perkins Coie law firm and Fusion GPS to coordinate with Russian agents to compile the fake Trump Dossier that has served as basically the sole basis for the last two years of endless and mindless investigations.

Bug-eyed Adam Schiff, the main “Democrat” referenced in the CNN report as having tirelessly pushed this fake story, must be devastated. Remember, when Donald Trump, Jr. testified behind closed doors before the House Intelligence Committee last year, details about his testimony were leaked to CNN while the hearing was still ongoing. The initial CNN report aired just minutes after Schiff had mysteriously left the hearing room for a few moments. Such a coincidence there.

In case you missed it, acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker told the leering press on Monday that he has been fully briefed on the Mueller Witch Hunt and believes it will be wrapped up soon. This came as a big shock to all the leftwingers who still cling to the belief that Mueller is going to just keep going throughout the duration of the Trump presidency, but I told you that it was pretty obvious last September that Mueller was in the process of slowly winding the thing down.

The reason why Mueller is likely to wrap it all up soon and issue his final report is exemplified by the collapse of this fake Trump Tower Meeting story: He is holding a big bag of nothing when it comes to  “Russia Collusion” and that bag has a bunch of leaks. The entire thing is a fantasy constructed by the Democrats and the fake news media, and, as Alan Dershowitz pointed out earlier this week, Mueller has yet to indict any American on any charge related to what his mission was supposed to be.

You can’t indict a sitting President on smoke and mirrors, and at the end of the day, that is all Mueller has. Time to wrap up this stain on our nation’s history. Long past time, in fact.

It’s 100% sure to work. – The simplest and surest way to get the Democrats and fake news media to stop trying to normalize pedophilia and infanticide in our society would be for President Trump to endorse both practices.  Then, all the Democrats and fake reporters would immediately be, like, totally against them. It’s a foolproof plan.

Ocasio Cortez Update! – She’s like an 8 year-old who just completed her first piano recital:

So now we know she’s pretty adept at reading a script prepared by others. Cool. Now, if she can master the practice of taking both sides of every issue depending on what audience she happens to be talking to, she’ll be just like a real member of congress.

Fake News, WaPo Headline Edition. – Check out how the news fakers at the Washington Post attempted to turn the Virginia Democrats-supporting-infanticide incident into a negative for the Republicans, and Ben Shapiro’s astute response:

Hey, you knew Planned Parenthood had to be pushing the infanticide bills. – Another bit of news from our You Don’t Say! department:

Some things in life are just too predictable.

The Times Slimes Trump Jr., But No Real Scandal Here

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Coverage of politics by the U.S. fake news media is filled with rank double standards, with Republicans always being held to a far higher standard of behavior than Democrats.  But none is ranker than the media double standard when it comes to dealings and entanglements with Russia.  The latest sliming of Donald Trump Jr. by the NYTimes and other fake news media outlets is just the latest in a long, long line of examples of the media’s literal insanity when it comes to matters involving Russia.
  • First, let’s look at what Mr. Trump Jr. is alleged to have done.  As of this morning, he is alleged by the NYTimes – on the word of “three people with knowledge of the situation”, what ever the hell that means – to have received an unsolicited email last June from some guy named Rob Goldstone, who had no official involvement with the Trump campaign.  In that email, Mr. Goldstone is alleged by the NYTimes to have encouraged Trump Jr. to meet with a woman – who had no position with the Russian government – who claimed that she had damaging information about the Hillary Clinton campaign, including information indicating that the Russian government was funding that campaign and the Democratic National Committee.  (Mr. Goldstone, by the way, denies making any such statement in his email.  But nevermind that, the Times is intent on making this into a scandal.)
  • Mr. Trump Jr. did take a meeting with this woman who, as it turned out, had no such information about the Russians, and instead really wanted to talk about an American law that prevents Americans from adopting Russian babies.  The meeting quickly broke up, and everyone went on their merry way – this, no one disputes. This, the NYTimes wants you all to believe is a major scandal.
  • Now, let’s look at what the NYTimes does not consider to be a scandal:  While serving as Secretary of State, Ms. Clinton brokered a deal that turned over roughly 20% of U.S. uranium reserves to a handful of Russian companies.  Shortly after that deal was finalized, those companies “contributed” millions of dollars to the Clinton Crime Family Foundation.  The NYTimes finds nothing suspicious about any of this at all.
  • Clinton Campaign Manager John Podesta has made millions of dollars from investments and sitting on boards of various Russian companies, and in fact maintained significant Russian investments while managing the Clinton campaign.  The NYTimes finds no issue with any of that.
  • During the 2012 presidential campaign, then-President Barack Hussein Obama was caught on an open mic whispering to Russian Foreign Minister Dmitry Medvedev “On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved, but it’s important for him (Vladimir Putin) to give me space.  This is my last election.  After my election, I have more flexibility.”  Despite the clear message being sent here – that Obama felt the need to act tough towards Russia during the campaign, but would be more amenable once re-elected – the NYTimes saw nothing scandalous in this behavior.
  • Going back even further in time, to 1984, liberal hero Ted Kennedy flew to Moscow and literally begged the Russian government to intervene in the U.S. presidential election in a failed effort to prevent the re-election of Ronald Reagan.  No one at the NYTimes saw any issue with that at all, and Mr. Kennedy was able to serve in the U.S. Senate until the day he died.
  • Here’s reality:  During the campaign, representatives of both the Trump and the Clinton campaigns no doubt held dozens, if not hundreds of meetings with third parties claiming to have damaging information about the opposition.  This is an integral part of what every campaign refers to as “opposition research”, and these campaigns will take any real, true information they can get their hands on, regardless of the source.  There is nothing scandalous about anything we’ve learned about Trump Jr.’s meeting with this woman thus far, and damn sure nothing illegal about any of it.  Anyone who says otherwise is just a partisan hack, which of course, accurately describes everyone who works for the NYTimes.
  • In addition to that reality, given the many episodes in which stories published by the NYTimes about this presidency based on anonymous sources have been clearly demonstrated to be utterly false, there is a greater than 50/50 chance that this latest bit of journalistic malfeasance will ultimately have to be corrected or withdrawn.
  • But for the time being, this will be the story on which the entire fake news media obsesses as the Trump Administration continues to systematically erase the Obama policy legacy from the federal books.  Seems like a fair trade to me.

Just another day in fake news media America.

That is all.
