NBC Admits Media Bias, but only in a Highly-Biased Way

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Even the fake news media’s pieces admitting media bias subconsciously display the media’s bias. – NBC has a piece at what it calls its “Think” website this morning that actually admits that the media is biased against conservatives.  Yippeee!!!  Happy days are here again!!!!  All the fake reporters have realized the error of their news-faking ways and are going to start reporting real news again!!!!

Ok, don’t get too excited.  This isn’t that, not remotely close to it.

The piece is actually just another hit piece on President Trump and his supporter base, which continues to grow in spite of all the #fakenews hysteria generated by outlets like NBC and CNN, written by an inveterate “Never Trumper” named Evan Siegfried. Siegfried bills himself as a “Republican strategist,” though the origins of that tag remain somewhat mysterious.

Among Siegfried’s previous writings is a piece he penned in May 2016 for the dying anti-Trump rag the New York Daily News titled “Why I’m With Her: A Republican strategist explains why he will vote for Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump.”  Oh.  That guy.

So you end up with a piece in which the President of the United States is accused of “weaponizing” the media’s own bias, which somehow ends up meaning that anyone who supports the President of the United States of America is living in a “post-fact world.”  This is #NeverTrump dogma, Book 1, Chapter 1, Verse 1.

Siegfried even goes to the brain-dead length of comparing the media’s treatment of President Trump to a couple of incidents in which New York City’s commie Mayor Bill DeBlasio complained about negative media coverage.  This of course ignores the reality that the NY City media’s coverage of DeBlasio has been overall the sort of fawning groupie coverage the media always gives to Democrats, while President Trump somehow remains a fairly popular POTUS despite vicious media treatment that has been 92% negative according to the Media Research Center.

He does at least correctly point out that the media’s treatment of Mitt Romney and George W. Bush was also absurdly negative and vicious – he could have gone all the way back to Nixon and Reagan to reinforce that point – and points out that the media’s long history of blatant, absurd bias against Republicans is the main reason why almost no one trusts the media to tell a story straight anymore.  But then he destroys all that solid historic foundation work by then going into attack mode on the President and anyone who supports him, in the process revealing his own anti-Trump hatred.

Here are some things he doesn’t point out about the media’s ridiculous behavior towards this President:

  • Neither the Washington Post nor the New York Times currently employs a single commentary writer who takes a pro-Trump view.  Everyone of their “conservative” writers are fervent #NeverTrumpers like Siegfried.  This is an unprecedented circumstance;
  • Just last week, one of the NYTimes’s fake conservative writers, Brett Stephens, admitted he was employed there “to oppose the President.”
  • The week-long media-fed hysteria characterizing the President’s private meeting with Vladimir Putin as being somehow unprecedented (it wasn’t) and even “treasonous” (it wasn’t);
  • The New York Times is still paying an anti-Trump reporter who was recently discovered to be trading sex for the illegal leaking of classified information.  She has simply been reassigned;
  • The Media Research Center – which Siegfried himself cites – has compiled a list of dozens of outright false reports filed by myriad media outlets, all negative to Mr. Trump, since Trump was was sworn into office.  Only a small handful of those outright false reports have resulted in negative consequences for the reporters and editors who allowed them to go to press;
  • Siegfried doesn’t mention the obvious, blatant message coordination that takes place between leading Democrats and pretty much every national media outlet on a daily basis.  Rush Limbaugh puts together montages of all these people parroting not just the same positions on issues, but the exact same words 2-3 times every month.  He could do one every day if he wanted to;
  • He doesn’t mention the obvious media practice of dummying up false stories based on “anonymous sources” every time there is a news development that is positive to the President.  John Kelly is about to celebrate his one-year anniversary as Trump’s Chief of Staff, and we have been through at least a dozen rounds of “John Kelly hates the President and is about to resign” media-generated rumor mongering since he took the office last August.  That appears to be the NYTimes’s  and CNN’s default fake story whenever they can’t find a porn star or centerfold to talk about;
  • And of course, Siegfried doesn’t make note of the fact that so many of these “journalists” make a practice of making their outright hatred for this President known to the world on their Twitter and/or Facebook accounts every day, which is the real key to everything here.

If it has done nothing else positive for our society, social media has served as the great unmasker of these people pretending to be unbiased “journalists.”  In times past, the American public had very little knowledge of the personal lives and attitudes of the reporters and editors who shaped the news every day.  That has all changed now, thanks largely to their 280-character daily rants on Twitter.

The truth is that we Trump supporters consider most of the media establishment to be #FakeNews today because we now know them so much better than we ever have before.  And that familiarity breeds contempt.

Just another day in fake news media America.

4.1% Q4 GDP Growth – and it’s Probably Understated!

So, the U.S. Q4 GDP comes in at a whopping initial estimate of 4.1% growth.  All the fake reporters and talking heads at all the fake news outlets are now busily coordinating with their favorite Democrats to either a) give all the credit for this wonderful economic news to Barack Obama, the only POTUS in U.S. history to never achieve a year of even 3% economic growth; b) pretend that this really isn’t good news at all because PORNSTARSCENTERFOLDSRUSSIANLAWYERS!!!!!!; or c) ignore the story entirely.

But everyone with firing synapses in their cranial cavities knows that this robust economic growth is in fact the outcome of the policies of Donald J. Trump, policies designed to reverse the heavy Obama regulatory actions and take the chains off of the levers of this country’s massive, unrivaled economic growth engine.  This is in fact great news for every American, and our fake news media simply cannot stand to spend any real time reporting on that because it surely does not fit the narrative they’ve so carefully constructed with their Democrat and #NeverTrump dinner club buddies.

Here’s the even better news that literally no one in the fake news media will utter a word about today:  This huge 4.1% GDP number for the 2nd quarter is almost certainly understated.  Many bad actors obviously remain in place at the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, which constructs these estimates, given that literally every initial GDP growth estimate during the Trump presidency thus far has later been revised upwards.

Here are the numbers:

Q1 2018:  In today’s announcement, BEA also notes that Q1 2018 GDP has now been revised upwards from 2.0% to 2.2%.

Q4 2017:  The estimate for the final quarter of 2017 was ultimately revised upward from 2.5% to 2.9%.

Q3 2017:  The estimate for Q3 2017 was revised upwards twice, from an initial 2.8% to 3.2% to a final 3.3%.

Q2 2017:  The estimate for the first full quarter of the Trump presidency was initially estimated at slightly less than 3%, then revised up to 3% and then finally revised up again to 3.1%.

Thus, four straight quarters of pretty significantly understated initial estimates.  Two in a row could be written off as statistical noise; three could be attributed to mere coincidence;  but four?  Four is a pattern, and not a good one, because, given that very few people ever actually hear about the upwards revisions from our eternally fake news media, the pattern is obviously designed to temper the public’s knowledge of just how well the President’s economic policies are working.

Someone in charge over at BEA needs to be taking a close look at whomever it is that is calculating these consistently understated initial estimates.  Here’s a clue: During the Obama years, the consistent downwards revisions of initial GDP estimates became almost legendary.

This kind of subversive nonsense needs to come to an end.

That is all.

[UPDATED] CNN, NYTimes Dummy up Some Great Fake News in Advance of GDP Report

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

God bless them and their families. – The remains of 55 U.S. soldiers killed during the Korean Conflict more than 65 years ago arrived back in the United States on Thursday, as part of the commitments Kim Jong Un made to President Donald Trump in their meeting in Singapore last month.  The transfer coincides with the 65th anniversary of the armistice that created the demilitarized zone between North Korea and South Korea and ended the active military fighting phase of the Conflict.  The U.S. government believes that the remains of around 5,300 U.S. military personnel still reside in North Korea, so yesterday’s event was just a down payment on what will be a long and somber process.

The #FakeNews follies just keep on coming. – In a desperate effort to distract public attention from this morning’s release of what is expected to be very strong 2nd quarter GDP numbers, the fake news media worked overtime rolling out the rumors yesterday.

My favorite bit of fake news came from New York Times Clinton shill Maggie Haberman, who “reported” that, according to anonymous sources (of course), Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his band of merry Clinton/Obama hacks are now scouring President Trump’s Twitter feed in their ongoing efforts to dummy up a fake obstruction of justice charge.  While Ms. Haberman no doubt intended this fake news to be some sort of bombshell, if it’s true, it’s actually wonderful news for the President and his supporters because it is such a sign of rank desperation on the part of the Mueller team.

Think about it:  Mueller has had dozens of hack lawyers and FBI investigators working round the clock for more than a year now, feverishly searching for some evidence – any real evidence at all would do – that the President somehow obstructed justice during the early days of his presidency.  And he’s got bupkis.  Nothing.  Nada.  Zippo.  Zilch.  So he’s now reduced to assigning these high-powered hacks and gumshoes to spend their days going through the Twitter account of the President of the United States of America, hoping against hope that some smoking gun has just been sitting there in the public domain for months and none of the hundreds of millions of Twitter users have noticed.

Good luck with that, Bob.

Then you have the ever-reliable CNN (why do almost all of these fake news stories originate with either the NYTimes or CNN?) fake reporting that weasel shyster Michael Cohen is supposedly willing to tell Mueller that then-candidate Donald Trump knew in advance of the infamous October 2016 meeting his son Don, Jr. had with that Russian lawyer who the FBI and Clinton Campaign knew all about and were probably paying.

CNN says its “report” is based on “sources with knowledge”.  Well hell, I have “knowledge” of all of this – so do probably half of the people in the United States, given all the time CNN and the myriad other fake news outlets have spent on their vain attempts to turn what was a basic opposition research meeting into some sort of crime over the last 10 months.  I mean, seriously, that vague description by CNN could mean that its “source” for this information is the guy running the hot dog truck down on the corner of 43rd Street and 7th Avenue (those are really great hot dogs, by the way).

But let’s think about what this story means if it turns out to be true:  It means that the candidate knew that his son and others working on his campaign knew they were doing some opposition research, meeting with someone who claimed to have damaging information about their opponent.  If that can be turned into some sort of criminal act, then everyone every involved in any campaign anywhere in the United States needs to have a grand jury convened against them.

The reality is that Mr. Cohen is a desperate man who finds himself on the brink of being prosecuted for allegations of bank fraud, tax fraud and myriad other crimes unrelated to the Trump campaign or presidency.  He is also a notorious serial liar who is willing to say pretty much anything to keep himself from going to prison, where a soft guy like him probably would not fare too well.  So it would not be at all surprising that he might be willing to tell CNN’s alleged story to Mueller to get a deal.

But make no mistake about it:  The reason why you are seeing this story and Ms. Haberman’s bit of news fakery all over your TV sets this morning is simply to give the entirety of America’s fake news media an excuse to by and large ignore the very positive GDP growth numbers that will be released later this morning.

Timing is everything in life, especially if your job is the daily faking of the news.

[UPDATE]  About 5 minutes after I posted this piece, the President began addressing this very subject on his Twitter feed (it’s amazing how often this happens – you’d think he’s reading these things as I type them):

Obviously at least one more to come – I’ll do an update when he posts it.

[Update 2]  aaaaaannnnnd 2 minutes later, here it is:

Trump and Putin Meet, DC Establishment Throws a Fit

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Yes, Virginia, the fake news media is the enemy of the people. – In an interview with CBS that aired on Sunday, President Donald Trump said this in response to a question about who are America’s “foes”?:

“Well, I think we have a lot of foes. I think the European Union is a foe, what they do to us in trade. Now, you wouldn’t think of the European Union, but they’re a foe. Russia is foe in certain respects. China is a foe economically, certainly they are a foe. But that doesn’t mean they are bad. It doesn’t mean anything. It means that they are competitive,” Mr. Trump said at his golf club in Turnberry, Scotland.

“I respect the leaders of those countries. But, in a trade sense, they’ve really taken advantage of us and many of those countries are in NATO and they weren’t paying their bills,” he added.

This very specific and very true statement about the long-time unfair tariff treatment of U.S. goods by the EU and others immediately got turned into headlines in pretty much every fake news outlet in the U.S. and Europe blaring “TRUMP CALLS EU THE ENEMY!!!!!!!”

This is just one in a long line of literally thousands of instances over the last 20 months of the fake news media intentionally lying about what this President actually said in a blatant, intentional effort to sow conflict and discord among the American people and drive another wedge between the U.S. and its allies, purely for the envisioned political gain of the Democrat Party.

Note to fake journalists:  If you don’t like being called the enemy of the people by the President of the United States, stop being the enemy of the people.

But the fake news media tactic failed, at least with EU Chancellor Donald Tusk, who responded to all the fake headlines by saying “America and the EU are best friends. Whoever says we are foes is spreading fake news.”

The media tactic predictably worked a little better with Germany, though, as Foreign Minister Heiko Maas responded with “We can no longer completely rely on the White House.  To maintain our partnership with the USA we must readjust it. The first clear consequence can only be that we need to align ourselves even more closely in Europe.”  Which is perfectly fine with President Trump, by the way.  If Germany thinks it can maintain its economy by doubling down on its unfair trade practices with the U.S. – by far its largest trading partner – and make up the difference from the comparatively tiny markets in Europe, then they should go for it.  They won’t like the end results, however.

Look, our fake news media in the United States is too dimwitted to ever understand it, and too captive to the Democrats to ever admit it, but President Trump’s entire interactions with the members of the EU on this trip – from his face to face meetings to his press statements and interviews to his messages sent out on Twitter – all had a single goal:  Negotiating better deals for America and Americans.  Better deals on trade, and a better deal within NATO, where almost all of our European “friends” have been wandering into America’s living room drunk and crashing on the American couch without paying  any bills for too damn long.

These European nations are not America’s “enemies”, and the President never said they were.  They have long been and continue to be our “foes” on matters of international trade, however, and deadbeats on paying the huge NATO tab.  Everything this President says is said with intent and for a purpose.  If Germany now thinks it can’t rely on the U.S. to continue footing the bill for its national defense – a bill we have footed for 73 long years now – that’s exactly what Mr. Trump wants Germany to think.

By the same token, while the fake news media has coordinated with Rod Rosenstein and Robert Mueller to poison the atmosphere for President Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin that is beginning as I type this piece, there is no real reason for Russia to be America’s “enemy,” either.  Russia will always be America’s “foe” – that dynamic is the product of a century of rank hostility by the old Soviet Union, corrupt actions by current Russian leadership and rank mis-management by every U.S. President since George H.W. Bush left office.

Making the situation even more difficult for the President, America’s political establishment and fake news media – including many war-mongering Republicans like John McCain – continue to seem intent upon forcing the U.S. ultimately into a shooting war with the Russian Republic, for reasons that continue to mystify many observers.  These people have been literally panicked at the very thought of a U.S. President attempting to establish a more productive relationship with his Russian counterpart.

As you watch the hysterical fake coverage of the summit, ponder why these people are so dead set against the United States having better, peaceful relations with Russia.  Ask yourself this question:  Where on the face of the earth is Russia anything resembling a real threat to America’s well-being?  Their nuclear arsenal is an obvious answer, but guess what?  Our own nuclear arsenal constitutes a real threat to the well-being of every Russian, too.  And guess what was the first thing President Trump said he wants to get out of this meeting in his opening statement this morning?  A commitment by both nations to reduce their nuclear arsenals, which constitute more than 90 percent of all the nuclear weapons on the face of the earth.

There goes that awful Donald Trump again, trying to negotiate a better deal for America and Americans.

Other than that, where is Russia a real threat to the national security of the United States of America?  If you’re honest, there really is no answer to that question.  So, why all the hysteria from the Washington establishment and our fake news media?

Here’s an answer everyone should take seriously:  These people fear peace.  They fear a lack of conflict, a lack of division, a lack of…wait for it…fear on the part of the American people.  Because fear is the source of their power, the source of their prosperity, the source of their ability to make their livings.

President Donald Trump does not fear peace, and is not a captive of the Washington establishment.  It’s been 30 long years since America had such a person in that office.

Be glad.

Just another day in Donald Trump is doing his job for America.

That is all.

Last Night’s Trump Derangement Twitter Meltdown was Glorious to Behold

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

President Trump nominates Supreme Court justice, left goes crazy, fake news media piles on.  Wash, rinse, repeat.  – So, Brett Kavanaugh will become the latest nominee for the Supreme Court by a GOP president to have his reputation trashed by the Democrat/fake news media propaganda complex.  Let’s all hope he can withstand it.

So predictable and staged was the leftists’ fake reaction to the nomination that one can only wonder how anyone remains dim enough to fall for this nonsense anymore.  A small army of Soros-funded professional protesters began gathering in front of the Supreme Court building hours before the announcement, armed with four versions of cardboard signs that alternatively had the names “Kavanaugh”, “Hardiman”, “Kethledge” and “Barrett” printed on them, so that the right version could be distributed as soon as the President made his announcement.

These protests and media reaction were in fact so fake, so un-spontaneous that ABC issued a promo hours before they knew who the nominee would be which already branded the as-yest unidentified person as being “controversial.” Hey, what if the President had done what Chuck Schumer suggested and nominated Merrick Garland, ABC?  Would that have been “controversial” in your collective hive mind?

Of course, the truth is that President Trump could have nominated Alyssa Milano or Bette Midler to fill this seat and the leftist nutbags would have still gone berserk.  Because Trump.

Meanwhile, The far-left “Women’s March” organization is run by such a bunch of lame-brains that they issued their own release via Twitter half an hour (check the time stamp) AFTER Kavanaugh had been named with the following text:

Uh, folks, filling in the actual name is kind of an important part of issuing a press statement.

The best prank President Trump could have pulled last night would have been to name someone not on the much-publicized short list – that would have really set the leftist creeps off, because nothing makes a “spontaneous” Soros-funded leftist protest group angrier than actual spontaneity.

But Mr. Trump stuck with his list and pulled Kavanaugh’s name out of his hat, and now the game is on.  The nominee has a lovely wife and family – we can hope the leftist creeps, fake journalists and slimy Democrat politicians will leave them out of it, but don’t count on it.  For those on the radical left – which today includes pretty much everyone in or associated with the Democrat Party and national news media – this is war.  Don’t kid yourselves otherwise.

Here are just a few more highlights from last night’s fun on Twitter:

Oh, thank you so much for bringing this up, Jeffrey Toobin.  Please, everyone, give me ten minutes while I bathe myself with this thought and luxuriate in it:

Ok, I’m back.  Man, that felt goooooood.

Here’s what the fake newsers at dying Newsweek chose to focus on last night:

Hey, in all fairness, who hasn’t done that?  Was that mean?  I don’t care.

Then there’s this from the dimwits at Vox.com:

Why, it’s almost as if they don’t understand that that is in fact the President’s goal with this pick.  Go figure.

Fake documentary maker and failed Broadway star Michael Moore unwittingly gives us even more reasons to be excited about Kavanaugh:

So many badges of honor for just one judge.  This Kavanaugh guy is awesome!

Before going out to the Supreme Court building to mingle with her Soros protest monkeys, Sen. HeapBigFakeIndian weighed in with this:

I love how she includes her now-dead personal piggy bank, the CFPB, in this, as if any real person should actually give a damn about that.  And isn’t it also cute how she felt the need to include “I’ll be voting no.” I mean, really, was there a single sentient being in the entire universe who didn’t already know that?

Finally, it’s not Twitter, but in case you still weren’t sure that President Trump made a great choice with Kavanaugh, this screen shot of the protest at the Supreme Court building tells you all you need to know:

Image may contain: 3 people, text

Pretty sure that gal on the right just spotted the Democrat Party’s retirement-home congressional leadership shuffling over towards the protest and is thinking she’s somehow wandered into a remake of “Night of the Living Dead.”  Again, that’s probably mean, but I just don’t care.

Enjoy the next couple of months, folks.  The Democrats and their guardians in the fake news media are going to throw their entire playbook at Brett Kavanaugh, and he is still going to be confirmed at the end of the day.  Because that’s how we know that, despite their best efforts to kill it, America still works – elections still matter in this wonderful land.

Just another day in thank God for Donald J. Trump America.

That is all.

The Democrat Meltdown Over the Supreme Court Vacancy Gets Off to a Rollicking Start

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? Part I – With Justice Anthony Kennedy announcing his long-anticipated retirement from Supreme Court on Wednesday, it was just like Election Night 2016 over at CNN.  Check out these looooooooonnnnnng faces:

Just charming, aren’t they?

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part II – Oh, but it got even better over on Twitter (because liberal outrage and angst is always better on Twitter), with SJWs and snowflakes wailing out their innermost feelings in 280 characters or less.  Here are a couple of examples:

And this:

Yes, because this 81 year-old man had an obligation to keep working to make sure helpless snowflakes like Molly Knight wouldn’t have meltdowns on Twitter.  My goodness.

There were many  more examples of liberal depravity and dementia in the wake of Kennedy’s announcement, but they pretty much all involve the “F” word or explicit references to male and female body parts, so I won’t quote them here.

Note that Ms. Knight is already promising riots over this change in a single Supreme Court justice.  She was far from alone.  Former Democratic Rep. Donna Edwards (Md.) told the execrable Nicole Wallace on MSNBC that “It’s time for Democrats to throw down, and what I mean by that is we’ve been playing by the rule book, and Donald Trump and Republicans have been playing by street rules,” Edwards said. “We need to play by street rules.”

Oh, hey, everyone, what we’ve been seeing from the lunatic Democrats the last 20 months is them “playing by the rule book.”  Of course, Ms. Edwards left out that it’s the Saul Alinsky Rules for Radicals rulebook, but I’m sure she just ran out of time.

Then there’s Angela Rye, who is some sort of “analyst” for last-place CNN.  Her advice to Democrats went like this:  “They have to raise hell,” Rye said. “I said it kind of—whatever, but I mean, like, seriously. This is a decision that doesn’t just impact our lives next year or the next two years.”  Man, is that some serious analysis, or what?

Not to be outdone, alleged serial woman harasser Chris Matthews (how does this guy still have his job?) told his audience that the nomination fight over Kennedy’s vacant seat is a “time for vengeance” for Democrats. See?  This is the Democrats and their fake media guardians, playing by that “rule book.”

While the Democrats were actually relieved that Kennedy’s announcement now gives them an excuse to quit talking about the fake “don’t separate the families!” border issue that is killing them in the polls, the truth is that the politics of this situation are equally horrible for them, really as bad as they could possibly be.  Even though craven RINOs like Susan Collins and Jeff Flake are already scurrying out of the woodwork promising to use the nominating process to satisfy personal grudges with President Trump, the fact of the matter is that the Democrats don’t control a single lever of power in this process – they have no means whatsoever of stopping it.

For that, they have their own ex-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to thank, because it was Reid who decided to go down the road of eliminating the filibuster rule on judicial nominations.  Too bad, so sad, as my kids used to say.

To make matters even worse, the Democrats in this mid-term election year have at minimum 8 incumbent senators from states won by Donald Trump in 2016 who are in serious jeopardy of losing their bids to retain their seats.  The vote on Kennedy’s replacement will in all likelihood come at some point in October, bare weeks before Election Day.

Think of the fix in which this places Democrat senators like North Dakota’s Heidi Heitkamp, Montana’s Jon Tester, Missouri’s Claire McCaskill, Florida’s Bill Nelson, and West Virginia’s Joe Manchin.  They and other vulnerable Dems are going to be placed under severe pressure by the Party’s far-left voter base and Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to march in lockstep (because marching in lockstep is what good little fascists are best at) with the rest of the Democrat senators in opposing any nominee.  But for many of these folks, doing that will be fatal, assuming President Trump puts forward another nominee of similar character and quality as Neil Gorsuch.

Trust me, Trump’s nominee has to be someone who is completely impeccable of character and whose record of public service is unassailable in any honest way.  The Democrats will go to extreme lengths to “Bork” him or her by portraying them as “too extreme” to assume a seat on the highest court.  Failing that, they will then subject the nominee to the Clarence Thomas strategy, so expect a parade of people coming forward to hurl false accusations of harassment or some other form of bad behavior in an effort to execute what then-nominee Thomas called “a high-tech lynching.”  Because this is what the Democrats and their media guardians do.

One thing we can all be absolutely certain of is this:  President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three words) will put forward a stellar, high-character, strict constructionist nominee to fill this vacancy.  He will do that because that is what he promised to do in his campaign, and this man, like no president before him, keeps his promises to the American people.

Just another day in Donald Trump keeping his promises to America.

That is all.

This was not the plan for the Fake News Media. Oh, no – not even close.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This was not the plan for the fake news media.  Oh, no – not even close.  Part I – President Donald Trump held another of his raucous rallies in South Carolina on Monday, this one in support of the re-election of Governor Henry McMaster, and things just did not go well, not well at all for CNN’s poor little Jim Acosta.

First, well before the evening’s program got underway, Acosta was, ahem, ‘accosted’ by someone’s great-grandmother, an older lady who decided it would be fun to hang out near the CNN position waaaayyyyy at the back of the hall and repeatedly shout “get him out!  get him out!”  You know, the kind of behavior that CNN loves to award copious amounts of air time whenever it comes from anyone on the political left.

Things just got worse for the little fake reporter when he went on-air for a live shot at his seditious network.  As Acosta went into his standard, tiresome anti-Trump screed, the crowd erupted with chants of “Go home, Jim!” and “CNN go home!”  Then, to top things off, one enterprising guy got close enough to get his “CNN Sucks” sign into the shot, and remained in the shot on live CNN feed for a good 15 seconds.

Of course, since these were Trump supporters and not professional leftwing agitators, this was all in good fun.  No one was threatened, no one was assaulted, no one was harmed, and many in the crowd actually came over to Acosta and other members of the press to take selfies and get autographs.  Because these people are Americans who love America, not a bunch of paid agitators.

But, well, CNN does suck, and Acosta is one of the main reasons why.

 

This was not the plan for the fake news media.  Oh, no – not even close.  Part II –Hey, check out this tweet from ABC News and the film embedded in it:

You know what that is?  That is President Donald J. Trump forcing the unwilling fake journalists at ABC to accidentally cover what is actually happening every hour of every day along our country’s border with Mexico.  That report actually aired on ABC’s prime time newscast, something the network would have never dreamed of airing just two weeks ago.

Here are other long-ignored border-related issues that the fake news media has accidentally been forced to cover in its efforts to support its Democrat wards on this fake “don’t separate the families!” issue:

  • Child trafficking and human smuggling;
  • Sex slavery, often involving young children;
  • Mexican gang warfare, often taking place north of the border;
  • How deeply these gangs, including MS13, have infiltrated our nation’s cities;
  • How woefully under-staffed our Border Patrol is;
  • The fact that 4 out of 5 of the kids in these holding centers are unaccompanied minors;

This list of border issues long ignored by the fake news media because they reflect badly on their political wards could go on and on.  If you are wondering why this issue is polling horribly for the Democrats, this is why:  Millions of Americans who stupidly depend on the major TV networks and CNN for their “news” have learned about the issues above for the first time over the past two weeks.

And then, of course, there’s Maxine Waters.  The Braying Buffoon has gone and gotten herself in a pickle with her clear incitements to violence over the weekend.  The ugly film of her repugnant screams has done irreparable damage to the increasingly depraved and despicable Democrat Party, and will no doubt provide dozens of Republican congressional candidates with fodder for extremely effective campaign ads in the Fall.

How bad is it for the Dems, you ask?  It’s so bad that both Chuck Schumer and San Fran Nan felt the need to repudiate Waters’ actions on Monday.  Schumer did so directly with a speech on the Senate floor, and Pelosi did it indirectly in a tweet, because that’s the kind of political coward she truly is.

Trust me on this, folks:  Neither Schumer nor Pelosi would have said a damn thing about the Mad Maxine incitements unless they had received some extremely negative polling and/or focus grouping information.  Those are the only things that motivate any Democrat politician to do anything.  Well, other than money.

Before any of you goes and gives these two slimeballs any credit at all for doing the right thing here, you need to remember that they and their silence are the main reasons why we have arrived at this point to begin with.  These two and every other leader in the Democrat Party have remained disgracefully silent through 20 months of riots, violent protests, public assaults on Trump supporters, public assaults on Trump officials, spying on Trump and his people by the FBI and a trumped-up Special Counsel witch hunt, all of which have combined to create the current toxic atmosphere in our public discourse.

Had either of these two clowns, or Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama or even Bernie Sanders had the personal integrity to speak out and condemn the rising violence and anti-social behavior on the political left since Election Day 2016, things would have immediately calmed down.  But they all – every one of them – bought into the “Resistance” and adopted it as their Party’s sole platform for the 2018 elections.

They all remained silent because, hey, this was the plan.  It’s been the plan all along, and save for the situations in which an idiotic rant by the Braying Buffoon costs them in the polls, it will remain the plan going forward for one simple reason:  The Democrat Party is bankrupt of ideas.

Think about it:  Everything the Democrat Party has stood for during the Obama Administration has been revealed to have been a lie.  The “new normal” of less than 2% economic growth?  A lie.  If you like your plan you can keep your plan?  A lie.  The Paris Climate Accords?  A pathetic lie.  You can’t just wave a magic wand and make those manufacturing jobs reappear?  A pathetic lie.  It’s impossible to root out ISIS?  A disgraceful lie.  We can’t drill our way to energy security?  A laughable lie.  The Iran deal?  A despicable lie.  You can’t talk to North Korea and get anything out of it?  A disgusting lie.  Open borders are good for the country?  A nation-ending lie.

These are desperate people now, because nothing they do works.  President Trump’s polling numbers have actually risen over the past two weeks amid all the fake hysteria about the border.  They are utterly shocked by this and have no idea what to do to change the dynamic.

Thus, they will do what they’ve done for the last 20 months:  Gradually try to drop this subject and move on to another faked-up scandal.  Because that really is all they got.

Just another day in November is going to be a Red Wave wipeout America.

That is all.

Mexico’s Next President Promises to Make Our Immigration Problems Exponentially Worse

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – JSW Steel announced a $500 million investment in the revitalization of the Acero Junction facility located in Mingo Junction, Ohio.  Faced with the possibility of import tariffs being implemented by the Trump Administration, JSW chose to make this massive investment in America rather than construct an entirely new plant in India.

“The Trump administration was the driver behind giving us in the U.S. the ability to compete for capital,” JSW Steel USA CEO John Hritz said during a First on FOX Business interview with Edward Lawrence on Thursday.  “We are going to revitalize that facility and that entire community.”  Other than the story linked here and a couple of other web-based reports, the fake news media completely ignored what would have been a major and extremely rare story during the Obama Administration.

Leftists hate you and want to take your freedoms away, Part 9,885. – Donny Deutsch, the hair jelled-up metrosexual doofus who for some reason appears on Morning Joe each morning, told the show’s puny audience on Friday that Trump supporters are “like Nazis” and encouraged leftwing agitators like Antifa to target such supporters rather than the President himself.

“What has to happen now is this can no longer be about who Trump is, it has to be about who we are if we’re working towards November,” he said. “We can no longer say Trump’s the bad guy. If you vote for Trump, you’re the bad guy. If you vote for Trump, you, not Trump, are standing at the border like Nazis saying ‘you here’, ‘you here.'”

So our fake news media has invented this border issue out of whole cloth, taking a standard process of  temporarily separating illegal alien parents from minors that is common practice in Canada and most other free nations and portraying it as the return of concentration camps – as I predicted they would back in December 2016.  They and their Democrat wards have now spent the last week becoming increasingly shrill and at times violent in an effort to turn this situation into an election-impacting issue, in keeping with the Saul Alinsky Rules for Radicals playbook that they religiously follow in their daily lives.

With a raft of late-week polls showing they are failing in this effort, mental midgets like Deutsch get frustrated and resort to just lashing out at anyone they can think to demonize, which is of course the clearest sign we can have that the bad people are losing the issue.  The Democrat/Media propaganda complex will continue trying to keep the issue alive for awhile longer, but it’s a loser for them because most Americans do not want the completely open, unregulated borders that is always the goal of the American left.  So you can bet they’re already getting ready go to the next page in their playbook and drum up a new fake issue starting next week.

So predictable.  So tiresome.  So utterly un-American.  That’s who these people are.

And hey, they have a new hero who is about to become President in Mexico.  Isn’t that wonderful?

Yes, friends, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, or “AMLO” as his supporters like to call him, is going to be elected the next President of Mexico come July 1.  AMLO is a 64 year-old leftist radical who has been bouncing around the Mexican political scene for 40 years, just waiting for the moment to arrive when he can seize power and turn our neighbor to the South into another banana republic in the style of Castro’s Cuba and Maduro’s collapsing Venezuela.  That time has now arrived, as AMLO is so far ahead of his pathetic opponents in recent polls that the vote is a foregone conclusion.

So if you think the problem of illegal immigration is bad now, just wait until this nutjob assumes office come December 1.  By this time next year, unless congress acts (which is like expecting your cat to scrub your toilets) we are going to be in the midst of a REAL humanitarian crisis down in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas, not some fake crisis made up by the fake news media.

And yes, you can quote me on that, because this is not speculation, it is an inevitability that AMLO is literally promising to create in his campaign speeches.  You don’t have to believe me, just check out these quotes from a speech this week that were reported by the Daily Caller on Friday:

“And soon, very soon — after the victory of our movement — we will defend all the migrants in the American continent and all the migrants in the world,” Obrador said, adding that immigrants “must leave their towns and find a life in the United States.”

He then declared it as “a human right we will defend,” eluniversal.com reports.

For all you Morning Joe viewers, Pantsuit Princess fans and Bernie Sanders sycophants out there, this is what any sane country would treat as an outright declaration of war.  This is a promise to not just do nothing to prevent the illegal migration of Mexican and Central American citizens across the border into the United States – which is what the current and past Mexican regimes have done – this is an open commitment to literally cause and lead an overt, intentional invasion of the Southwestern United States.

AMLO’s long-stated ultimate goal will be to overwhelm the social and political systems in the southwestern U.S. and, once that is accomplished – no doubt with the willing assistance of the Democrat Party and our fake national news media – begin a massive transfer of American wealth into Mexico.  AMLO’s leftist policies will inevitably decimate the Mexican economy and turn the country into a Venezuela-style failed state, and he’s ok with that.  Because that is the best way to encourage millions of Mexico’s citizens to attempt to flood across the border with the United States.

This is not a conspiracy theory;  this is not paranoia.  This is AMLO’s plan, a plan that he has publicly laid out a thousand times during a 40-year political career, a plan that Univision fake news anchor Jorge Ramos was applauding and supporting on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show Thursday evening.

Here’s the thing:  It’s not just the Democrats who don’t give a damn about this, Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell and the rest of the establishment Republicans in congress don’t give a damn about it either.  So get ready, because your government isn’t going to do a damn thing to stop it, other than whatever President Trump is able to do through executive action.

Just another day in this immigration problem is going to get exponentially worse America.

That is all.

Melania Trump trolls the media, media too dumb to figure it out.  Film at 11.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

It’s just like that trash compactor scene from Star Wars, only R2D2 won’t be saving him. – The walls of the justice system closed in a little more on FBI Super Duper Agent and Aspiring Latin Lover Peter Strzok, as Attorney General let slip during an interview that hey, his security clearance has been revoked.  Note for the faint of heart:  This film does not have a happy ending for the former Texting Titan of the FBI.

Gosh, why would that be?  So, so hard to understand.  Oh, wait…  – A new poll from YouGov.org finds that public favorable view of the Federal Bureau of (fake) Investigation has dropped by 11 percentage points since February, as the details of the agency’s massive wrongdoings throughout 2016 and 2017 have made their way to light despite the best efforts of our fake national news media to keep them hidden.  The most disgusting part of the poll is that the FBfI’s most favorable ratings come from Democrats, who spent the 100 years prior to the inauguration of Donald Trump bashing the agency.  But hey, now they know it was nothing more than a tool of the Democrat Party trying to fix the election for the Pantsuit Princess, they love it.  It would be hilarious if it weren’t so sad for the country.

Speaking of polls, this whole fake border crisis isn’t working out too well for the fake news media and their Democrat wards.   A new poll from Rasmussen finds that fully 54 percent of likely voters blame the parents of these children for their situation (imagine that) and only 35 percent blame the government.  No doubt heads were exploding all over the headquarters of the DNC, CNN, the NYTimes and the WaPo after that poll came out.  This is not how this was supposed to go for them.  Not at all – not even close.

Democrats in Action! – Democrats on Tuesday:  “End family separation! End family separation!”

[Trump ends family separation]

Democrats on Thursday: “End family reunification! End family reunification!”

*sigh*

Melania Trump trolls the media, media too dumb to figure it out.  Film at 11. – The First Lady traveled to McAllen on Thursday to visit one of the facilities that is at the center of the latest episode of fake liberal outrage.  As she boarded Air Force One, all the fake reporters gasped in unison as they noted she was sporting a $39 jacket, on the back of which was the slogan “I don’t really care, do U?”

As if it were all a coordinated effort (note: it is), the entirety of the nation’s fake news media went immediately into deflection mode, ignoring the First Lady’s long, detailed visit with the children in the McAllen facility and her discussions with those who care for them, focusing instead on her fashion choice.  What does it mean?  Is she making a statement towards these poor, poor children?  Maybe she’s mad a her evil husband – that must be it!

All the social justice warriors on Twitter also went into an immediate rage, because, well, of course they did.  When one asked me “can you imagine what would be happening if Michelle Obama wore that jacket?” I responded “no, because I can’t imagine Michelle Obama ever putting on a $39 jacket.”

Several hours after the First Lady returned to Washington, we of course found out it was all an effort to tweak the fake news media’s collective nose, as the President issued the following tweet:

Hilarious.  Obviously, the White House strategy on this fake border issue is not just to let the Democrats and their fake media guardians wail away and reveal they don’t really give a damn about any kids, but to help them along by trolling them as the First Lady did yesterday.  While some might characterize that as callous, it is in fact entirely appropriate to the situation.

Think about it:  The outrage is false.  Pretty much every allegation leveled at the Trump Administration has been shown to be false.  Most of the images and video shown by the fake news media has been revealed to be from the Obama years, during which the media/Democrats never uttered a peep.  Even the little girl on the cover of Time Magazine has been shown to be a fake – she was never at any time separated from her mother.

The obvious next tactic the media/Democrats will be deploying today will be allegations that the children are somehow being “abused” by those caring for them.  By Monday, those allegations will also be proved to have been false, because this is what our fake news media does.

Given all of that, why should the Administration do anything other than taunt their opposition, and troll them into revealing their true nature and goals?  When literally everything about the opposition is fake, the opposition does not deserve a serious response.

And hey, as I write this piece this morning, President Trump has issued the following tweets:

Ok, I can stop now.

Just another day in now even Melania’s trolling the fake news media America.

That is all.
