Democrats Promise Again to Make Impeachment Permanent

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

I hate to say I told you so, but, well, I told you so.  – A week ago, on December 16, the Campaign Update detailed the fact that, in a filing before the D.C. Court of Appeals, House Democrat General Counsel Douglas Letter had revealed his Party’s plans to make impeachment a permanent feature of their majority’s reign of terror. Here, in part, is what that filing said, as detailed in a report by Politico:

In a filing to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, House General Counsel Douglas Letter argued that the House’s demands for grand jury materials connected to former special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation were still urgent because such evidence might become relevant to the Senate’s expected impeachment trial next month.

But Letter went further to note that even apart from the Senate trial, the House Judiciary Committee intends to continue its impeachment investigation arising from the Mueller probe on its own merit.

“The committee has continued and will continue [its impeachment] investigations consistent with its own prior statements respecting their importance and purposes,” Letter wrote in a filing Monday as part of the House’s bid to obtain Mueller’s grand jury evidence.

Seems pretty clear, doesn’t it? Yet, when Letter essentially repeated this evil plan in another filing today, the same folks at Politico and others in the corrupt national news media acted as if it were some big surprise. Here, in part, is what Politico had to say about it all:

The House is open to the prospect of impeaching President Donald Trump a second time, lawyers for the Judiciary Committee said Monday. [Oh, you don’t say?]

House Counsel Douglas Letter said in a filing in federal court that a second impeachment could be necessary if the House uncovers new evidence that Trump attempted to obstruct investigations of his conduct. Letter made the argument as part of an inquiry by the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals into whether Democrats still need testimony from former White House counsel Don McGahn after the votes last week to charge Trump with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

So, ok, for the second time: The House Democrats are going to make impeaching President Donald Trump a permanent feature of their majority’s rule for at least the entirety of 2020. If the President is re-elected and the Democrats manage to retain their majority, they will continue the permanent impeachment process for the following two years. Indeed, as long as that status quo balance of power remains in place, the Democrats will be impeaching President Trump.

Is everyone clear on this now, or should I get a blackboard out and write it 100 more times?

Hell, it could get even worse than that. Last Thursday, Bugeyes Schiff said that the permanent impeachment effort by depraved House Democrats could also be expanded Vice President Mike Pence. And don’t forget that Schiff, Gerrold Nadler and Pelosi have all also talked about the possibility of attempting to impeach Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

This is what happens when American voters choose to vote for demented, depraved, despicable and morally bankrupt Democrats in congressional elections. These people and their corrupt media toadies are frankly evil human beings who simply do not care about this country, and it is long past time to stop pretending otherwise.

Because maintaining the pretense that there is anything legitimate about what the Democrats are doing is destroying our country, and it needs to end.

They will never stop, until we stop them.

That is all.

The Democrats Will Have Their Impeachment and…then what?

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

The despicable House Democrats, led by the demented (literally) and depraved Nancy Pelosi will, like lemmings following their leader off the proverbial cliff, vote to impeach the 45th President of the United States later today. And then…what? – Our country will go on, and so will the Trump presidency, for at least another year and most likely for four more years after that.

The Senate will dispose of these sham articles of impeachment quickly once they arrive at its doorstep in the new year. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made that clear on Tuesday when he suggested that, following opening arguments in a Senate trial, the Republicans will offer a motion to simply dismiss the case. McConnell also said that, just as the House impeachment exercise has been a purely partisan affair, he expects the Senate trial to be the same, meaning he does not anticipate losing a single GOP vote to the other side.

We’ll see. So long as Mitt Romney, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski remain senators, the prospect of GOP unanimity on any matter remains elusive.

Regardless, there is currently zero indication that McConnell and Lindsey Graham, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, will allow this to take up more than a handful of Senate days in 2020. After all, the Senate has more important matters to attend to, like confirming dozens more Trump-appointed judges to the federal judiciary.  In fact, McConnell has 13 more Trump judges up for confirmation today, even as the Democrats perform their impeachment charade:

Once impeachment is done, President Trump will be tagged with the scarlet letter for the rest of his days, but that has hardly had any ill effect on Bill Clinton, who, along with the Coughing Crook, somehow managed to become near-billionaires in the years following his presidency. It seems that impeachment ain’t what it used to be, or perhaps it never really was.

The reality is that the cheapening of the impeachment process that Pelosi, Schiff and Nadler have wrought also cheapens its impact. Everyone in the country knows this is purely a hateful partisan exercise based on nothing real, the Democrat/media narrative to the contrary notwithstanding. The polling data available indicates that this entire charade has failed to turn a single American person against President Trump; indeed, if anything it has actually improved his standing among the voting public.

As I told radio host Greg Budell during my weekly appearance on Newstalk 93.1 FM in Montgomery, AL on Tuesday, the Democrats are going through with this because they literally have no choice. Their party has no real political agenda other than doubling down on Venezuelan-style socialism and they know their lineup of hacks, frauds and political midgets has no chance of actually defeating Donald Trump in a free election.

So their strategy at this point is do everything they can to de-legitimize the electoral process, and that starts by impeaching the President. That will lead to the narrative that he is now an illegitimate candidate, and the Senate’s quick acquittal of Trump will lead to the narrative that Trump and Putin will just team up to steal the presidency again in 2020.

Make no mistake about this, folks: The Democrat Party as it stands today is an anti-free and fair election party. What do you think the move to issue driver’s licenses to illegal aliens this week in New York and New Jersey is all about? It’s nothing more than an organized effort by the Democrat Party to facilitate massive voter fraud in those two states, which now join California in going down this road. You should expect states like Virginia and others along the East and West coasts to follow shortly.

The Democrats know they cannot win free and fair elections, so their plan is to do away with them, state-by-state. The three states mentioned above are already lost to the GOP for the foreseeable future, but when you see that particular effort going into place in marginal states like Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Florida, or “red” states like Texas or Alabama or Georgia – where Stacey Abrams is working hard on exactly that – then the entire country stands in real jeopardy.

As I’ve written regularly since about 1992, the only true, clear and present existential threat to the United States of America as it is constituted today is not Russia, not China, not Iran or North Korea or any other country. The only true, clear and present existential threat to the American democratic republic is the Democrat Party.

This sham impeachment is just the latest in a long line of clear manifestations of that reality.

We truly are living in interesting – and dangerous – times.

Lindsey Graham: I’m Gonna End This as Quickly as I Can for the Good of the Country

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

Sen. Lindsey Graham turned up on Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo earlier today. He only did one segment, but a lot was said about the impeachment process. Graham, as is his habit, tossed out a lot of red meat that will infuriate some observers and please others, and vice versa. He got all sides covered, as usual.

His basic message was this: Impeachment is tearing the country apart, and because of that he is not going to extend it by doing things like allowing the President of the United States to call the witnesses he wants, or to force Adam Schiff to testify under oath about his pre-dealings with Eric Ciaramella, who everyone knows is the fake whistleblower who kicked this whole thing off. There will be no testimony from Hunter Biden or Joe Biden or Alexandra Chalupa or anyone else, if Graham has his way.

Graham’s grand plan is to – I kid you not – give the Democrats one more bite at the apple, allow them to present their slanderous joke of a “case” on national TV one more time, and then hold a vote if he has 51 Senators who will vote “yay” or “nay.” He promises the President will be acquitted, but with this guy, who really knows?

Below is a clip of Graham’s interview with Bartiromo, followed by a transcript provided after great and laborious effort for our voracious readers by your friends at the Campaign Update. Judge Sen. Graham’s intentions for yourselves.

 

 

Transcript:

Bartiromo plays clip of Graham on November 10, lambasting Schiff and House Dems for not allowing the “whistleblower” – CIA plant Eric Ciaramella – to testify, and saying that impeachment is “dead on arrival” when it lands in the Senate, largely as a result of that failure.

Bartiromo: You said that to me a few weeks ago – does it still apply today?

Graham: Well, the whole process is illegitimate in the house. It’s not just the whistleblower. You don’t want to create a situation where an anonymous person can start impeachment proceedings against a president of the United States. You can’t get a parking ticket based on an anonymous allegation. The hearings were held behind closed doors, the Intel committee gathered all the facts, the President’s lawyer was never allowed to participate, they asked to call witnesses in the Judiciary committee, they had one hearing of the Judiciary committee with 4 law professors and Nancy Pelosi said we’re gonna move forward with the articles of impeachment.

This is a joke of a process. It’s dangerous to the country, it’s the first impeachment scenario in the country started in-house, not with outside counsel.  Whitewater – Prosecutor Ken Starr. You had Mueller looking at all things Russia and Trump, you had prosecutors in the Nixon case, outside the system.  This is being driven by Schiff and Nadler, Pelosi – partisan people – and I think it’s gonna meet a quick end in the Senate.

Bartiromo: Who are some of the people you are gonna want to hear from if in fact this does go to a trial?  Are you gonna demand that people like the whistleblower, Adam Schiff, Alexandra Chalupa, Fusion GPS – are these some of the people you’re gonna want to question?

Graham: There’s two ways to do this. In the trial, you can have the President present a defense to prove the fact that maybe the Ukraine was interfering in our election. The Russians stole the emails, not the Ukraine, but there’s articles suggesting that Ukrainian officials met with Democratic operatives in 2016. I don’t know if that’s true.

But here’s what I’m gonna do with the trial: I’m gonna try to get this over as quickly as possible. Listen to what the house case…let them present their case, and if there’s nothing new and dramatic, I would be ready to vote and we can do all this other stuff through congressional oversight [which of course will never happen in Graham’s committee].

Bartiromo: So, are you saying you are not gonna have people come down and test…

Graham: I am saying that I’m gonna end this as quickly as I can for the good of the country. When 51 of us say we have heard enough, the trial is going to end. The President’s gonna be acquitted. He wanna call Schiff, he may wanna call Hunter Biden, he may wanna call Joe Biden, but here’s my advice to the President: If the Senate is ready to vote and ready to acquit you, you should celebrate that and we can look at this other stuff outside of impeachment. Impeachment is tearing the country apart, I don’t wanna give it any more credibility than it deserves.

Bartiromo: Well, it’s interesting that you say that, because for all of this time – yes, they’re trying to rush this through, the Democrats want to get this done before the end of the year, and before the Iowa Caucuses and before we learn more about the IG Report, and yet there seems to have been a wrecking ball thrown at our democracy with Adam Schiff getting peoples’ phone records…I mean, what do you think about that? Schiff getting the phone records of Devin Nunes, of John Solomon?

Graham: I think it’s dangerous. What he did was, I think, looking a Rudy, and Rudy made some calls to these folks…

Bartiromo:…so Rudy’s not allowed to make these phone calls???

Graham: No, he certainly can. But here’s what I would tell Adam Schiff: Do you really wanna start calling other members, Republicans, members of congress in oversight? Do you want me to call you to the Senate as part of Senate oversight? Where does this insanity go?

Bartiromo: So will you call him?

Graham: No I will not.

Bartiromo: Why?

Graham: ‘Cause I’m not gonna participate in things I think will destroy the country. I’m not gonna call a bunch of House members to come to the Senate as part of oversight. Now, if you’re a House member and you participated, you’re not subject, you’re not above the law, but we’re not gonna turn the Senate into a circus. And I would  tell Schiff: What you’re doing is very dangerous for the separation of powers here.

Bartiromo: Just the idea of getting that information into the public view, so that the public can start speculating, ‘oh, why did Giuliani make that call, and why was John Solomon on the phone with Giuliani,’ it’s…

Graham: Adam Schiff is doing a lot of damage to the country, and he needs to stop. Mueller spent two years and $25 million looking a Trump. This whole Ukrainian stuff is a joke. They got the money. The got the meeting with the President. They didn’t investigate Joe Biden or Hunter Biden. There is no ‘there’ there.

Bartiromo: I understand, but it’s not stopping, Senator. You say, he needs to stop, but it’s not, for three years he said ‘collusion’ is in plain sight.

Graham: Yeah, well the guy…

Bartiromo: Where’s the accountability for that? Let me hear your thoughts on the IG report, do you think that’s…

Graham: The accountability comes in November 2020 when the public sees what the House has done with their majority. They’ve spent all their time trying to destroy the Trump presidency, they’ve done nothing beneficial to the American people. You know who may be the most valuable player for the Republican Party in the 2020 election cycle? It’s Adam Schiff [who Lindsey refuses to call to testify].

Bartiromo: unh-huh.

[End]

Now, we could argue this either way. Graham’s argument that a quick resolution in the Senate is best for the country has merit: There is no question that this impeachment fiasco has been horrible for our country.

But to just call a vote after giving these despicable Democrats another nationally-televised chance to lay out their joke of a case? To do that without giving the accused a chance to defend himself by laying out a case of his own not only seems unfair, but also completely contrary to the American system of justice.

The very concept should be frankly offensive to Lindsey Graham, the former lawyer. But to Lindsey Graham the current politician, acolyte to the detestable John McCain – whose own hands are dirty in all of this – and longtime friend of Quid Pro Joe Biden, well, it no doubt sounds fantastic.

Bottom line: While this impeachment clown show has obviously been terrible for the country, what is really tearing our country apart is our ongoing bifurcated system of justice, which Graham’s proposed solution here would only serve to strengthen.

P.S.: No one should forget this moment from Graham and McCain:

The more you know…

Why Impeachment Will Now Become a Permanent Fixture of Government

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

If you think a Senate acquittal of President Donald Trump will put Nancy Pelosi’s clown show to rest for good, think again. – The Democrats will get their dummied-up articles of impeachment voted out just before Christmas as a gift to their lunatic Perpetual Outrage Mob on Twitter, irrevocably staining our nation’s history as a result. Many people are thinking right now that that will mean they can breathe a sigh of relief, since the Senate trial will likely result in an acquittal of the President, meaning he and congress will then spend most of 2020 conducting the nation’s business.

Well, if that is your thought process, you really should think again. Several Democrat members of congress, including Jabba the Nadler and even San Fran Nan herself, have made it quite clear this week that they consider getting to these articles of impeachment just sort of step one in what they hope will become a never-ending process throughout the duration of the Trump Administration.

We have this prevailing thought process among the corrupt media’s pundit class that Pelosi has been a reluctant, almost unwilling participant in all of this, but nothing could be further from the truth. People tend to forget that Mollie Hemingway of the Federalist, while riding an Amtrak train the day after the 2018 elections, overheard Jabba the Nadler having a telephone conversation in which he laid out his and Pelosi’s plans to convert the House Judiciary, Oversight and Intelligence committees into tools for a continuous impeachment effort, targeting not just President Trump, but Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh as well.

Nadler’s conversation was not just idle boast – everything Hemingway documented in her piece about that call has in fact materialized. The Democrats haven’t gotten around to Kavanaugh yet, but the key word in that sentence is “yet.”

This impeachment clown show could not have been conducted in the way that it has been unless Pelosi actively and willingly conspired with her committee chairmen – Adam Schiff, Jabba the Nadler and the late Elijah Cummings (now the detestable Carolyn Maloney) – to write new committee rules for this congressional session that were designed to facilitate the effort. None of this would have taken place had Pelosi not willingly and with malice aforethought authorized the spending of millions of extra dollars for these committees to arm themselves with a raft of radical leftist Lawfare lawyers, who wrote those committee rules and have managed the committee efforts on behalf of the bumbling chairmen.

It was no doubt the Lawfare lawyers authorized by Pelosi who came up with the whole idea of going after the President via the “whistleblower” construct, a strategy that has allowed them to keep the guy who supposedly initiated the whole thing under wraps, even though everyone in Washington knows his name is Eric Ciaramella. Every public word Pelosi has spoken about this effort – from her supposed reluctance to move forward to her insistence that any impeachment effort would have to be bipartisan and even to her despicable claims to “pray” for the President has been an outright lie.

She planned all of this, working hand-in-hand with her committee chairmen and the Lawfare lawyers that she authorized the money for, from the beginning. Even those subpoenas Schiff issued so he could spy on Devin Nunes and John Solomon and who knows who else were signed off on by the Speaker of the House.

This is her deal.

As of today, she has no motivation to end it and put her committees back to doing actual work once she has obtained her articles of impeachment. Why? Because this entire fiasco has produced literally zero change in public opinion. As of today, the President’s average public approval rating in recent national polls at RealClearPolitics sits at 43.7%, which is within 1% of where it stood at the first of September, when the Democrat/media Axis of Propaganda started promoting the Ukraine hoax.

So, this latest tactic in the never-ending coup d’etat against the President has produced neither positive nor negative results for the Democrats. But their problem is, it’s all they have. They know that none of the array of corrupt hacks in their presidential field has a prayer of actually defeating President Trump in next year’s election, so their only real hope of ridding themselves from their midst is to just keep digging in hopes they will at long last finally dig up something in Trump’s past that will stick to him.

Given that 98% of the corrupt news media does nothing but serve as the Democrat Party’s giant organ grinder monkey, there is no political price for Pelosi or anyone in her caucus to pay for turning impeachment into a permanent fixture of American government.

The only way this clown show will end would be for the American voter to stop voting for these despicable, depraved, demented Democrats.

Schiff’s Spying on Nunes Imperils All of Us

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

One presidential loser endorses another. – In years past, the endorsement by one former Democrat presidential nominee of a guy who is the current front-runner for the 2020 Democrat nomination would have seemed like  a bit of a non-event. After all, John Kerry and Joe Biden are old Senate colleagues who have been working together to destroy our nation from within for many decades now, so the endorsement by Kerry of his old running buddy on Thursday seems like a natural fit – one past loser endorsing a future loser, as it were.

But then you realize that Joe Biden is the father of ne’er-do-well son Hunter Biden, and Kerry is the stepfather of ne’er-do-well son Chris Heinz, and that both sons have profited to the tune of many, many millions of dollars in their shake-down schemes involving Ukraine and China, and suddenly the endorsement takes on a whole new, almost desperate dynamic, doesn’t it?

Why yes, yes it does. The more you know…

If you still don’t understand exactly how power-mad the Democrats in congress truly are, will the fact that they are now spying on and doxxing fellow members of congress help to convince you? – We here at the Campaign Update have repeatedly invoked comparisons of conduct of the ongoing impeachment clown show by Adam Schiff, Gerrold Nadler and Nancy Pelosi to the basement interrogations and show trials that we used think only happened in Stalinist Soviet Russia and other totalitarian regimes.

We have made those comparisons for good reason: Because they are entirely accurate, right down to Schiff’s conducting of witness interrogations in an actual basement and selectively leaking only the parts of the interviews he wanted for public consumption. Now we have news that we would have thought simply impossible in a constitutional republic just a handful of years ago, news that Schiff has actually been researching metadata records collected by the intelligence community and culling through it in an effort to spy on Republican members of congress.

Nunes appeared on Fox News with the constantly-interrupting Martha MacCallum on Thursday evening to explain exactly the process that Schiff used in his spying operation and the motives behind doing so. Given that the clip below contains subtitles for all the studious readers out there, I did not take the time to try to build a transcript of it:

It is important to understand exactly how unprecedented this situation is. Schiff’s actions, if they go unpunished by Pelosi and the Democrat-majority House “Ethics” Committee now set the precedent of a sitting Speaker approving one member of congress literally spying on the activities of another. It is completely beyond the pale. Sadly, they surely will go unpunished since the Dems on that Committee are every bit as corrupt as Schiff, and Schiff certainly had Pelosi’s approval before going down this road.

Schiff and Pelosi, by using this method – no doubt at the urging of their outside Lawfare Alynskyite lawyers – now open the door for future GOP majorities and speakers and committee chairs to employ the exact same sorts of tactics. Think of it as open warfare and imagine how the tensions and retaliatory actions will escalate over time.

Schiff and Pelosi also went after and received the records of journalist John Solomon, who has become a social outcast among his corrupt media peers for filing a series of extraordinarily well-sourced reports on the Ukraine situation, reports that actually follow the rules of ethical journalism that have been almost outlawed now in the corrupt national news media. Had Nunes and then-Speaker Paul Ryan gone after some hack at the New York Times during the previous two years, the media would have been in full outrage mode for years. But because this is a case of Democrats going after an actual working journalist, the response from the media establishment has been crickets.

This is a truly frightening development for our country. We now have the majority party in one house of congress actively spying on members of the minority party and members of the press, and placing the results of their spying into a formal committee report. Even more frightening is the fact that the press – which is supposed to serve as the public’s watchdog holding abusive politicians accountable – is as a group sitting in Pelosi’s lap begging her to give another scratch of its collective head with her gnarly fingers.

What this all tells us is that the Democrats and their media toadies view this impeachment effort as an all-or-nothing game. They view President Trump as a truly existential threat to their bases of power and corrupt way of life and are willing to go to any lengths to rid him from their midst.

Despite all the seemingly comforting words coming from some GOP members of the Senate, no one should just assume that the Republican majority there will hold together and kill this atrocity of an impeachment effort once it falls into their laps. After all, if the Democrats have no compunction against spying on their fellow members of the House, do you think they would hesitate for a moment to take similar actions against vulnerable GOP members of the Senate?

Remember: This is the party of the Clintons we are talking about here.

The next few months are a very dangerous time for our country. Don’t kid yourselves otherwise.

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.
