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.

You Are a Child, Robert Francis O’Rourke

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

Give him credit, the dude knows how to get attention. – Irish Bob O’Rourke has always been an attention-seeker, and he’s always been good at it.

From his college career as a furry drunk-driving punk rocker and inept burglar, to his do-nothing terms in congress, to his failed challenge of Ted Cruz in 2018 to his rumblin’ stumblin’ bumblin’ three-time-re-booted presidential campaign, Irish Bob has always been able to gain the attention of an eager fake news media, the public and his opponents. The problem for him, his long-suffering parents and now his political party has been that his efforts to grab attention seem to pretty much always end in failure, often in disaster.

The past few days have provided a prime example of O’Rourke getting an unwarranted level of attention that will almost certainly redound disastrously for the Democrat Party. Think about it: Here is a guy who is barely averaging 2% in the national polling who yet again became the major topic of conversation on the Sunday morning talk shows. It all started last Thursday during the latest Democrat debate when O’Rourke uttered the threat, “Hell, yes we are going to take your AR-15, your AK-47.”

Call it the threat heard round the world. In making that threat, that “we” are coming for your guns, and having not one single other person on that stage rebut him, O’Rourke overtly committed not only himself but all the other contenders for the Democrat Party’s presidential nomination to doing what every gun owner in America has always known the leftists ultimately want to do, which is coming to get our guns.

That, after all, is the most important step in the creation of a fascist state, which is something the Democrat Party has been working diligently towards for the last century now. Fascist thuggery requires a docile, disarmed public, and Democrats from Franklin Roosevelt to George McGovern to Dianne Feinstein to Barack Obama to Bernie Sanders have been hinting around about gun confiscation for decades now, while always being careful to couch it in deceptive talking points designed to convince voters that it’s just baby steps, that they’re not coming for ALL of your guns and besides, it’s all for your own good.

But not Irish Bob. Irish Bob needed attention to try to re-re-re-re-boot his flailing campaign one more time, so he just blurted it out, right there on live national television. O’Rourke made a modest effort to sort of walk back his remarks on Sunday, but too late: The jack-booted cat is out of the bag now, and there’s no going back.

Delaware Senator Chris Coons gets it: “I’m a gun owner,” Coons said Friday in an interview on CNN. “My sons and I have gone skeet shooting and hunting and, frankly, I don’t think having our presidential candidates, like Congressman O’Rourke did, say that we’re going to try and take people’s guns against their will is a wise either policy or political move. That that clip will be played for years at Second Amendment rallies with organizations that try to scare people by saying Democrats are coming for your guns.”

Yes, it will. Because that’s what the Democrats ultimately will be doing if they ever regain full power in Washington.

Preacher Pete Buttigieg echoed Coons’s comments on CNN later on Sunday afternoon. You can bet other Democrats confronted with Irish Bob’s attention-seeking comments will be doing the same as their Party desperately attempts to crawfish its way back under cover of its deceptive talking points this week.

Irish Bob’s real problem is that he is still a child emotionally. He was probably largely ignored by his parents as a toddler, and figured out he could get their attention by throwing fits. Even in his mid-40s, he is still that 10 year-old brat at the beach who sits and watches as three other kids spend an hour carefully building a sand castle and then rushes in to kick it down just as they’re about to be finished.

In the wake of the tragic El Paso shootings in August, the shameless opportunist has now tried both approaches to bring attention onto himself. First, he decided the best way to exploit the tragedy was to be the loudest Democrat blaming it all on President Donald Trump. He figured the best way to be the focus of attention would be to drop a lot of F-Bombs while branding the President as a “white supremacist.”

When that third re-booting of his campaign by tossing a toddler fit didn’t work out for him amidst the cacophony of fellow Democrats deploying the same strategy, he realized he had to re-group. That was when he landed on the strategy of kicking down the gun confiscation sand castle his Party has spent a century constructing.

And just like that, with one nationally-televised kick of Irish Bob’s boot, that sand castle of deception has been washed away with the tide.

GOP Congressman Briscoe Cain got it right on Friday when he told O’Rourke, “You are a child, Robert Francis.”

Emotionally, that is absolutely true. But once again, Irish Bob the child got his attention, and that’s all that matters to him.

That is all.

Good Idea for Sunday: Fill up Your Gas Tanks

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

Everyone should go to the gas station and fill your tanks today. – There’s no need for panic, but you might save a little money by doing that.

The attack on Saudi Arabian refining and other oilfield infrastructure by Huthi rebels supported by Iran Saturday has forced the Saudi government to shut-in half of its daily crude production. That amounts to about 5.7 million barrels of oil per day (bopd) suddenly disappearing from the global, 100 million bopd market.

Unlike the series of previous Iranian attacks on crude tankers, drones and other facilities that have taken place since April, this one is a big deal. Because none of those previous acts disrupted a significant amount of oil production or movement, crude markets had no measurable reaction to them.

But 5.7 million bopd is a huge quantity of crude, a volume that far out-strips the ability of the few countries with idle capacity to offset. Although the Saudi government attempted to assure markets that it would be able to return to normal production levels by Monday, Reuters quotes a “source close to the matter” as saying that recovery from Saturday’s drone attack will take “weeks, not days.”

Regardless of which case is accurate, it is likely that oil prices will spike to some degree when Asian markets open for Monday trading late this afternoon simply based on the uncertainty of the situation. How high it will spike is anyone’s guess, but a supply disruption of this magnitude could lead to something very significant.

Gasoline prices in the U.S. fluctuate with the global price of crude, so any spike in the oil price is going to quickly feed down to higher prices at the pump. Don’t complain to me – that’s just how the market works.

The rhetoric flying following Saturday’s attacks is also significantly harsher than what we saw following Iran’s previous hostile actions. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo issued the following pair of tweets Saturday afternoon:

Iran’s foreign ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi told Iranian state television that the U.S. accusations were “pointless” and that his country stands ready to conduct “full-fledged war,” according to Reuters.  Reuters also quotes an Iranian military official as saying, “Everybody should know that all American bases and their aircraft carriers in a distance of up to 2,000 kilometers around Iran are within the range of our missiles.”

President Donald Trump has rejected counsel from some advisors to mount military retaliations after previous Iranian provocations. After these latest attacks, the President called Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Saturday evening to pledge U.S. “readiness to cooperate with the Kingdom, by all means conducive to maintain its security and stability.”

All of this back-and-forth between the involved countries, combined with the Reuters report serve to increase uncertainty. And if markets hate anything, it is uncertainty.

Again, there is no call for panic here, but the best thing for readers to do when they get up and dressed this morning is to drive over to the nearest gas station and top off the tank. If you wait to do it tomorrow, you might be sadly surprised at the price you’ll have to pay.

That is all.

Trey Gowdy Warns Us Not To Expect Any BOOM From The Horowitz FISA Report

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

In case you missed it, plodding, thus-far-inept DOJ IG Michael Horowitz sent a letter to congress yesterday notifying key committee chairs that he has finally, at long last, completed the initial draft if his eons-awaited report on FISA abuse. The report now goes to Attorney General William Barr and swamp rat FBI Director Christopher Wray to begin the internal review process. That process will likely consume another month or so, maybe even longer, before the public will finally, at long last, be able to see the fruits of Horowitz’s glacially-paced labors.

This, of course will set the stage for all manner of leaking and self-puffery by the subjects of the IG’s report, including John Brennan, James Comey, James Clapper, Peter Strzok and Andrew McCabe, to name just a few of the Usual Suspects who the public record already available clearly demonstrates defrauded the FISA court repeatedly during 2016-17.

It also sets the stage for wild anticipation and irrational optimism among Trump supporters who have been paying attention to all of this that Horowitz is somehow about to deliver the goods on all the participants in the Obama DOJ/FBI Cabal, the foundation that will result in all of them being tried for treason and shipped off to prison for the rest of their lives.

Like clockwork, former prosecutor and ex-congressman Trey Gowdy appeared on Sean Hannity’s show last night to caution everyone to cool your heels and tamp down your expectations. Below is a video clip of that appearance, with a partial transcript to follow:

 

Here’s a partial transcript for those of you who still like to read stuff:

Gowdy: “It’s hard to convince 12 people of anything – I used to have to do that for a living. It’s tough. You’ve gotta dot every I and cross every T.

“Candidly, it is more difficult if it is a high-profile defendant. So, if they go forward with McCabe, it’s going to be a tough trial. You don’t want the U.S. government going to trial and losing on a regular basis. They lost the Greg Craig case, and that’s not good. If you’re going to go to trial, you need to win.”

Hannity shifts the subject to the IG Report producing indictments:

Gowdy: “You have to find a criminal statute if your objective is indictment. That is why I’m very clear every time I appear on your show that we cannot live in a society where an indictment is the only thing that carries any stigma [valid point there –  more on that at the bottom of this piece].

“Most of the names in this FISA abuse process have already been fired or publicly called to task. Jim Comey, twice now, the IG said ‘you did not meet our expectations. You failed to follow policy. You violated your employment agreement.’ All of that has to be significant.

“I used to try to make representations in court, and I tried real hard to be honest and fair about it. But let’s assume that I didn’t tell the court something. The remedy for me is not indictment. The remedy is I may lose my law license, I may be held in contempt.”

[Hannity interrupts, which is what he is good at, but makes a good point about the use of the unverified Dossier as the basis for the FISA warrants being a conscious fraud on the court, which it was. Repeatedly.]

Gowdy: “Well, if you were a lawyer, you’d lose your law license, and the court could hold you in contempt. You would be held in contempt of court, absolutely and you can go to jail for that. But I don’t know that lawyers who make factual misrepresentations in front of judges get indicted. You’re gonna get punished, you’re gonna be held in contempt, you may get sent to prison.

“I’m not minimizing anything they’ve done. I’m saying we’ve gotta attach the right punishment to the right offense.”

[Hannity visibly angry now: “But by signing that, they’re denying an American citizen their constitutional rights. They’re literally using that lie to spy on a presidential candidate, and then transition.”]

Gowdy: “Aha! We’ve identified a statute! Using the color of a government official – it could be a 1983 action. And that’s all I’m saying – we have gotta match up the conduct with an official code violation. What you just laid out is a 1983 violation.  Now, we’re getting somewhere!” [Note: U.S. Code Sec. 1983 allows prosecutors to pursue a civil action against anyone acting “under color of law” to deprive an American citizen of their civil rights. It is not a criminal statute.]

[Hannity: “I’ll send you Greg Jarrett’s list, he’s identified a whole bunch of violations.”]

Gowdy: “Don’t sent it to me, send it to Bill Barr.”

[Hannity dissembles about not knowing Barr. Interview ends.]

So, if you’ve been reading all those Twitter-based tick-tock conspiracy mongers and and watching Hannity air the same program every night for the last 18 months, leading you to believe the IG’s report was going to lower the BOOM on all the participants in the Obama Cabal, well, sorry. Trey Gowdy, a former prosecutor who never lost a case is here to tell you to dampen those expectations and go watch some football this weekend instead.

Finally, let’s review this passage of Gowdy’s comments:

“That is why I’m very clear every time I appear on your show that we cannot live in a society where an indictment is the only thing that carries any stigma [valid point there –  more on that at the bottom of this piece].

“Most of the names in this FISA abuse process have already been fired or publicly called to task. Jim Comey, twice now, the IG said ‘you did not meet our expectations. You failed to follow policy. You violated your employment agreement.’ All of that has to be significant.”

Of course, Gowdy’s absolutely right there. Public stigma used to be a vital aspect of punishing bad actors like the Cabal participants whenever the government couldn’t succeed in actually prosecuting them under criminal statutes.

The problem, though, is that that stigma no longer exists for anyone who is opposed to President Donald Trump. That stigma can only exist if our society has a real, working news media establishment that is willing to lay out the truth of their acts to the public and shame them for it. Our fake new media no longer serves that function related to anyone opposed to Trump. In fact, those bad actors are not only NOT shamed by the media, many of them are handsomely rewarded by the media with big “contributor” contracts. Witness Andrew McCabe, John Brennan, James Clapper as prime examples.

Peter Strzok and Comey were fired, but then were rewarded by the media with big book deals. Strzok and McCabe were both able to collect hundreds of thousands of dollars from demented leftists when they set-up online funds for their legal defense. On and on the depravity on the political left and in our fake news media goes.

So, while what Gowdy says there used to be correct in a U.S. society of decades ago, it is utterly irrelevant in today’s world. Absent indictments – or, as Gowdy repeatedly implies in this interview, being held in contempt by the FISA court and spending jail time for that – all of these co-conspirators will just keep laughing all the way to the bank with money largely provided them by our fake news media.

Sad, but true.

That is all.

The Democrat Clown Car is on the Fast Track to a Brokered Convention

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

Are you ready for a deadlocked Democrat convention next year? – Because that’s where all of this Democrat traveling clown show is headed.

Fauxcahontas is now an even more-clear favorite to get to the convention with the most delegates next July, although her chances of arriving there with a full majority needed to win on the first ballot remain small. Hell, she’s already playing the role of the front-runner in the debates.

Last night in Houston, she stood quietly for the most part while also-ran doofuses like Irish Bob O’Rourke and Julian Castro and Amy Klobuchar and Andrew Yang shouted and gesticulated and poured out the “I’m gonna grab your guns” and “Trump’s a racist” red meat for the party’s lunatic Twitter-outraged base. During the debate’s first hour, almost 20 minutes went by in between times when Little Mouth Always Running actually opened her mouth on stage, as all the nitwits around her tried to tear each other apart. That could be an all-time record for Princess 1/1024th.

While Yang was promising to have his campaign illegally pay out $1,000 a month for the next 12 months to twelve families in order to buy their votes, Preacher Pete was trying to get everybody to sing his own particular weird version of Kumbaya, Castro was cracking jokes about Biden’s advanced age, The Commie was trying to croak out some Bolshevik nostrums from his 77 year-old sore throat, Kamala was cackling like an evil character from a 1950s Disney movie, O’Rourke was promising to come grab everybody’s guns and trying to figure out exactly when to toss out an f-bomb and Klobuchar was getting ready to start throwing notebooks at the moderators, the fake Indian was doing her best imitation of Sitting Bull, calmly observing the fray and happy to let her enemies destroy one another.

It was a smart strategy. Whatever else one thinks about Sen. Warren, you cannot deny that she’s strategically smart. I mean, hell, she spent a virtual lifetime pretending to be someone she isn’t in order to advance her career before Trump came along and exposed her fraud to the world. That alone tells you she’s a clever schemer.

She’s clever enough to understand that being a life-long fraud is in fact a badge of honor in a Democrat presidential nominating contest, and so there she was last night, standing right in the middle of that stage next to Biden. She probably came into last night planning to take some shots of her own at Biden, but quickly realized that Castro and Harris and other were doing a fine job of exposing the elderly hack for what he is.

That quick thinking also shows she knows her own limitations. She has to understand that her angry school-marm voice and speaking tone quickly begins to grate and irritate, so why overdo that during a 3-hour debate that was viewed by millions?

As for Biden, if it weren’t for the fact that he’s been such a despicable swamp creature hack for so many decades it would be sad watching his visible decline on national television. His cognitive functions are so clearly limited now that it is visible on his face every time he’s asked a question for which he hasn’t been coached, or one that touches on an uncomfortable subject. If you can stand it, go watch a replay of the debate on Youtube. You can see Biden visibly recoil and squeeze his eyes shut whenever he’s asked a question that surprises him, which was typically from another candidate, not the accommodating moderators.

I’ve been telling you since April that Biden’s polling lead would be gone by October and he’d be out of the race entirely after next March 4, Super Tuesday. He’s right on schedule to meet that calendar, especially after his performance last night. The more he gets exposed to the public, the worse he looks.

As for the others, Harris is done. She is an awful campaigner and frankly a horrid debater. Everything about her screams insincerity and meanness.

Sanders will also fade after this croaking performance. Democrat voters are all about optics and the feels, and a 78 year-old croaking at them for three hours will make them feel all nervous and stuff.

Irish Bob is a furry circus clown who just announced the fourth re-boot of his campaign in six months. He’s to the point where even shallow Democrat voters think he’s a shallow opportunist.

Julian Castro never has been in any way relevant in this race, and his low attacks on Biden last night won’t change that.

Preacher Pete is cute as a button and might look good as arm-candy for Fauxcahontas in a general election race.

Cory Booker is Cory Booker and always will be, so no one should take him seriously in this race.

Yang is just weird. What was going on with that top button on his shirt last night? Everyone kept waiting for it to pop open and expose some odd tattoo and thus only heard about 1 out of 7 words he had to say. Again, Democrat voters are all about optics and feels, dude. Get a shirt that fits.

Klobuchar is just the angry version of Kirstin Gillibrand. No reason for her to be up there in the first place. She’s just wasting everybody’s time.

I feel like I’m forgetting somebody here, but honestly, I don’t care.

Here are my updated odds for the 2020 Democrat nomination after last night’s atrocity:

Fauxcahontas – 3 to 1

The Commie – 10 to 1

Biden – 50 to 1

Harris – 100 to 1

Preacher Pete – 100 to 1

The Field – 100 to 1

Someone not yet in the race – Even odds

Brokered convention, here we come.

That is all.
