Rolling Stone Reminds us of Jake Tapper’s Role in Pushing the Steele Dossier

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

Let’s all give Jake Tapper credit where credit is due. – The very, very leftist rag Rolling Stone has a piece by Matt Tiabbi today that rips the fake Steele Dossier and its sleazy origins and dissemination and the players involved in it to shreds. During the course of his expose’, Tiabbi names the names you’ve all heard before: Names like Hillary Clinton and James Clapper and Buzzfeed editor Ben Smith and Michael Isikoff and many more.

But one name you may not have seen associated with the dissemination of the fraudulent Dossier before now is that of CNN preening peacock host Jake Tapper. Here’s the key passage:

In early 2017, CNN anchor Jake Tapper wrote to Buzzfeed editor Ben Smith in a snit, complaining that Smith had been “irresponsible” and “uncollegial” when he published the dossier. Was Tapper upset that Smith had broken with ethical tradition by publishing unverified material, defaming a string of named human beings as traitorous spies without evidence?

Nope. Tapper was mad that Smith had defamed the story by showing where it came from! “I think your move makes the story less serious and credible,” he wrote, in an email produced as part of a lawsuit against Buzzfeed. “I think you damaged its impact.”

Tapper apparently liked the Steele tale better when it was coming out in bits, through more politically astute sources like his buddy and future co-worker, the former director of national intelligence James Clapper, one of the four Sneaky Petes who presented Trump with the Steele synopsis.

Tapper’s little tantrum was previously reported by Chuck Ross at the Daily Caller back in February, but did not receive much attention. I just wanted to highlight this Rolling Stone piece to do what I can to ensure the despicable Tapper gets his proper due for the role he and CNN played in this key early step in the never-ending coup d’etat that we are still going through today.

It would be a real shame if, in his pursuit of bringing the real bad actors in all of this to justice, U.S. Attorney John Durham failed to give credit where credit is due to the useful idiots in the corrupt news media like Jake Tapper.

That is all.

CNN Plumbs New Depths of Depravity With Weinstein Puff Piece

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

Getting tired of all this #WINNING yet? – The Trump economy just will not cooperate with the Democrat/media effort to create a recession out of whole cloth. On Monday, all three major stock indexes – the Dow, S&P 500 and Nasdaq – finished at all-time record highs.

True to form, CNBC, in its coverage of this happy event for America, noted in a sub-head that this latest major rally has come as a shock to all the experts: “Nearly everyone on Wall Street underestimated the strength of this year’s stock market.”

ummm, if the “experts” are always wrong about everything, shouldn’t we be looking for new people to refer to as “experts?”

Likely conversation at CNN editorial meeting…

CNN editor: Hey, uh, we appear to have gotten all the mileage we can from all these stories canonizing this Al-Baghdadi guy. Anybody have any thoughts on which human pond slug we glorify next?

CNN fake reporter #1: How about we do another 5,000 word piece on Beto and what he plans to do with the remainder of his sainted life? He’s so cute, and we could use the word “dusty” and compare him to a Kennedy…

CNN editor: Normally I’d jump all over that one, but we’ve done it 3-4 times before…

CNN fake reporter #2: What about Al Franken? He’s making a big comeback you know, or trying to.

CNN editor: uh, we need to tread lightly on the whole Franken thing. I mean, who among us hasn’t sexually assaulted a sleeping actress, or at least wanted to, right?

[Nodding heads all around the table. Brian Stelter mainlines a powdered sugar donut. Jake Tapper combs his hair. Chris Cuomo sits in a corner staring at the wall.]

CNN fake reporter #3: I know! Let’s do a glowing day-in-the-life profile of Ed Buck! He’s being treated so terribly out there in California – you know, he probably only killed two or three male prostitutes.

CNN editor: Good thoughts there, but it would’ve been better to do that before he got arrested – we might have bailed him out of all of that, and he could still be funding Democrat politicians. I mean, what’s a day in his life like now that he’s being held at the county jail? It’s hard to get 3,000 words out of his one daily phone call.

CNN fake reporter #4: ummmm…is Pol Pot still alive?

CNN editor: Pretty sure he’s dead.

CNN fake reporter #4: Idi Amin?

CNN editor: Dead, too.

CNN fake reporter #4: What about Generalissimo Francisco Franco?

CNN edtor: Still dead.

CNN fake reporter #4: How about Joseph Goebbels? I mean, I know he’s dead, too, but he is Zucker’s role model after all…might score some points with the boss!

CNN editor: It’s a valid thought, but our Democrat masters might not appreciate us being so up front on that one. We’re supposed to maintain this facade, you know, or at least try to.

[More nodding heads around the table. Alisyn Camerota daydreams about graduating 6th grade on her 3rd try. Chris Cuomo bats at an imaginary fly. Brian Stelter emulates his life’s hero Jake Tapper by running a comb through his imaginary hair.]

Anderson Cooper: I got it! Let’s do a positive profile of our buddy Harvey Weinstein! Nobody’s doing that one!

CNN editor: We have a winner! Get on it, Chloe Melas!

[End]

Yes, friends, just when you thought the demented cretins at the fakest fakety-fake fake news channel on television could not stoop any lower, they go out of their way to prove you wrong yet again. Last night, CNN published a story by entertainment fake reporter Chloe Melas with the I-kid-you-not headline of “Harvey Weinstein weakened but unwavering two years later.”

You seriously could never make this stuff up.

Think I’m kidding? Check out these snips from the piece:

CNN has learned from those closest to Weinstein that he isn’t sorry about his alleged misconduct. He’s combative, maintains he is innocent of any crime and is planning for a career comeback post-trial. His attorneys have maintained that any sexual contact between Weinstein and his accusers was consensual.

Harvey’s combative! He’s punching back at his tormentors! Unwavering in his innocence!

“Anyone who looks at him or talks to him knows this has taken an emotional and physical toll. Is his health failing? Not in a life or death situation, but I think he’s just breaking down,” one of his friends told CNN.

His health is suffering, the poor man! Feel sorry for him!

Weinstein used to spend his days in the Tribeca offices of The Weinstein Company, the movie studio he co-founded in 2005 with his now estranged brother, Bob Weinstein. These days he’s mostly alone in his Manhattan apartment, “obsessing” about the trial and the women who have accused him, said one of his friends.

Oh, noes! Harvey’s lonely! He’s obsessing about his accusers who have wronged him so!

“He feels like he is owed an apology from Hollywood,” the source added. “I think there’s a part of him that thinks he will come out on the other side of this and be welcomed back to some version of his old life.”

He’s owed an apology! He can’t wait to get back to work! Why is he being mistreated so???

“When you ask what life is like for Harvey, all you have to do is turn on nightly news and see women screaming at him, ‘You’re a rapist,'” Rotunno said. “People have sort of made their decision in the court of public opinion and that’s been my problem with a lot of the coverage.”

Don’t judge him! Those mean women!!! Why does everyone keep judging him????

“There’s a difference between sins and crimes,” Rotunno said. “You may think that you don’t like the way Harvey conducted himself at times or choices that he’s made, but that doesn’t mean he’s a rapist.”

He’s Bill Clinton! We didn’t impeach Bill Clinton! Well, ok, we impeached him, but we didn’t remove him from office! Stop this madness!!!!

I would be fair and also point out that Ms. Melas then goes on to point out the likely truth about the allegations made against this walking, talking horror movie monster, but she and everyone else at CNN do not deserve fairness here. Because they decided to do this semi-puff piece voluntarily, for no reason other than that they wanted to.

Truly, the depths of CNN’s depravity have no floor.

[NOTE: About 15 minutes after I published this piece, CNN revised the headline on this story to read, ”

Harvey Weinstein combative and in denial ahead of rape trial, inner circle says

You could never, never, ever make these people up, folks.]

 

That is all.

Impeachment’s Incredible Moving Goal Posts

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

The goal posts just keep on moving. – Anytime a major controversy arises that implicates prominent Democrats in wrongdoing, the Democrats and their media toadies employ two favorite tactics. The first is “projection,” accusing the other side of doing exactly what they themselves have been caught doing. You know, like abusing your office by withholding foreign aid to, say, oh, Ukraine until that country’s president fires the prosecutor who is investigating the U.S. Vice President’s son. Something like that.

The other favored tactic is the moving of the goal posts. You can count on this to happen with at least one aspect of the situation on pretty much a daily basis.  Where Joe Biden’s clear quid pro quo with Ukraine is concerned, here is the progression we’ve seen so far:

“Hey, that didn’t happen!”

[Video of Biden bragging about doing it gets wide social media play despite the mainstream media’s best efforts to bury it.]

“Hey, that’s old news!”

[Trump produces campaign ad melding Biden bragging video with other shady Biden interactions with various Ukraine thugs.]

“Ok, ok, Biden did it, but he didn’t do it for ‘personal’ gain!” That’s the latest line from Fredo Cuomo, Fake Jake Tapper and everyone else in the fake media, including Fox’s Chris Wallace on Sunday. That one will fail, too, and we can expect to see another new absurdly false defense of Quid Pro Joe to be floated out today by all the Usual Suspects.

Then there’s the fake “whistleblower” himself. When this all first broke, the line coming from Adam Schiff (who we now know had been coordinating with the “whistleblower” for weeks before the story broke) was that this intrepid, heroic spy embedded by the CIA within the White House for months was heroically confident of his story and would be heroically willing to testify before Schiff’s heroic committee.  Last Tuesday, Bug Eyes even speculated the spy would testify “before the end of the week.”

The news fakers at the New York Times, obviously having gotten the green light from Schiff and Pelosi, went so far as to publish personal details about the CIA plant, details that have allowed some to basically figure out exactly who the guy is. This was clearly done in anticipation of the guy testifying quickly, a stage-setting for the big show.

Then on Thursday, President Trump started saying he’d love for the guy to testify in public and have to face questioning from Republicans on the committee, and Schiff – and probably the fake whistleblower, too – started getting cold feet. When the President later characterized the Intelligence Community operatives who fed the whistleblower all of the second-and-third-hand information contained in his fake complaint as “almost spies,” the Democrat/media propaganda complex saw the chance to shift the goal posts again.

First, the media in unison – they all had the same talking points memo to read from, after all – falsely claimed the President’s “almost spies” remark was about the fake whistleblower rather than the IC operatives who fed him the gossip. Very shortly thereafter, they all began saying in unison – without presenting a shred of actual evidence – that the fake whistleblower who just days before was the brave hero ready to testify in public was now all a-skeered for his life because the bad Orange Man said something nasty about him, even though what the President said wasn’t about him.

Last night on “60 Minutes”, drama queen Scott Pelley went so far as to falsely claim that the fake whistleblower is so a-skeered that “he or she” is now in federal protective custody. The problem there is that the fake whistleblower’s own lawyers say that just isn’t true. But hey, when has truth ever mattered to our fake news media? They have a population to be brainwashed, after all.

In case you’re wondering, what’s really happened here is that the Democrats and IC spies who have choreographed this entire fake pretense for impeachment made one gigantic miscalculation: They obviously never expected the White House to release the transcript of the call with the Ukrainian President. They assumed the White House would do what it has been doing all year in the face of a raft of highly-politicized subpoenas from various House committees: Protect the right of Executive Privilege. Without the transcript being made public, everything would have devolved into a classic “he said, she said” dispute.

The fact is the release of that transcript is a completely unprecedented act. It has never been done before. The President, faced with shrill demands from the Democrat/media complex to “come clean,” called their bluff and came clean. That was not part of the Democrat/IC script for this whole impeachment deal.

The problem, of course, is that the transcript of the call does not support in any way the claims made by the fake whistleblower in his complaint. The Democrat/media complex started down the road to claiming the transcript had been falsified over the weekend, but then we learned that the same IC spies who fed the fake whistleblower all the gossip also participate in the creation of these transcripts. So if you’re claiming the transcript is false, you’re accusing your own co-conspirators.

So, they next went to claiming the fact that the transcript had been stored on a super-secure server was proof of a coverup! Oops. Turns out that has been standard operating procedure for all transcripts of presidential calls with foreign leaders for more than two years now.

Thus, today the goal posts will be moved again. The Democrat/media talking points monkeys are no doubt working on today’s memo as this is being written. No idea what the newest narrative will be, but we can be certain it will be as false as all of its predecessors.

Because that is who these people are, and it is what they do. Every. Damn. Day.

That is all.

Democrat Debates, Round 2 Feature Rigged Match-ups of Front-Runners

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

I demand to be a billionaire! um, will that work too, Rashida? – Michigan Bigot Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib told Fake, er, Jake Tapper yesterday that the economy is not growing because of the policies of President Donald Trump, but because…wait for it…THE PEOPLE DEMANDED IT. I swear I don’t make this stuff up. Here’s a link to the video:

Tlaib Flounders While Trying to Explain Why Michigan Shouldn’t Reelect Trump Given Their Economy Recovery

No, Rashida, that does not make sense. Not at all. Go away.

Hooboy. Here we go again. – The second round of Democrat “debates” take place tonight and tomorrow night in Detroit, to be televised on the Democrat activist channel CNN. So, it’ll be a great night to binge “Fixer Upper” or catch up on all those episodes of “Last Man Standing” you’ve missed or maybe watch a baseball game, which is my plan.

I’m not sure which of CNN’s on-air hacks will serve as “moderators”, but does it really matter? Whichever Democrat activist hacks it turns out to be will assuredly pose only the most painless of softball questions to the various circus clowns on stage, and none of the clowns will make any effort to actually answer the question posed anyway. It would be a far more honest endeavor if CNN just gave each of circus clowns 10 minutes or so to recite their standard talking points, because that’s what they’re all going to do.

The only real question over the next two evenings is whether any of the also-rans can recite their talking points in a manner that might allow them to have a break-out moment, like Kamala Harris had during her first debate at the expense of Creepy Uncle Joe. Harris got a big initial boost from that attack – which turned out to have been mostly false, but hey, she’s a Democrat, so that’s ok – temporarily moving her into second place in a few national polls, as Biden’s own poll ratings cratered.

But in the weeks that have followed that event, Biden has slowly regained his poll standing by largely staying out of the public spotlight (the old Hillary Clinton strategy) while Harris, a terrible campaigner, has utterly failed to capitalize on her opportunity and has fallen back into a weak fourth place.

This is where the Democrat debate process – with just a handful of debates spaced a month apart – plays into Biden’s creepy hands. Biden’s a horrible debater in general, and putting his elderly, highly-plasticized face in the national spotlight is never going to be a good thing for him. So, he is going to need weeks to recover from every one of these debate events, and the DNC process will give that to him. The fact that he’s been able to recover from his first debate fiasco is a firm testament to the laughable weakness of the rest of the Democrat field of clowns.

The field enters this week’s debates in almost the same polling positions they occupied entering the first debates, with two notable exceptions. First, The Commie has cratered over the past two weeks, as his poll numbers have fallen from around 20% to the low teens in the most recent round of polls. Fauxcahontas has now firmly assumed second place, trailing Creepy Uncle Joe by 12-14 points.

Second, Irish Bob O’Rourke, who entered the first debates polling around 4-5%, just behind Mayor Pete, has now cratered so badly that he trails Andrew Yang, one of the three actually interesting candidates in the Democrat field. Irish Bob finds himself on-stage tonight with Fauxcahontas, The Commie, Mayor Pete, the mercurial Marianne Williamson, and an assortment of 0-1%-polling irrelevancies who should have already abandoned their vanity campaigns. Tonight is basically Irish Bob’s last stand – he either finds a way to make himself relevant to the process again, or what little ongoing funding he still has will dry up like a West Texas stock tank in a drought.

As I pointed out last time, the Democrats never leave anything to chance, so both night’s panels have been rigged as battles between front-runners who have been trading polling support with each other in the hopes of improving TV ratings. Tonight’s feature match is between The Commie and Fauxcahontas, and you can bet the CNN “moderators” have been instructed to focus most of their questioning on those two.

Wednesday night’s feature match will be between Creepy Uncle Joe and Harris, obviously. No one else on tomorrow night’s stage is polling more than 3%. Aside from the feature bout, the big question will be whether or not Yang can get more than the 3 minutes of air time he got from the MSNBC goons during his first debate and potentially have a breakout moment.

Readers may remember that I predicted back in March that Yang would eventually become one of the “rising stars” of this field, but backed off of that later after Yang had had several awful TV appearances during which he did nothing but robotically recite talking points. Over the last month, though, Yang has gotten out of that noose provided by his “expert” advisors, and begun speaking more extemporaneously. Not surprisingly, we’ve seen his polling numbers begin to creep up as a result.

If he can get fair treatment from CNN’s fake “moderators” – and that’s a very big “if” since the people at the DNC are scared to death of an outsider like Yang – he could finally have the breakout moment he needs to boost his campaign on Wednesday.

Tulsi Gabbard, the only other actual interesting person in the Democrat field besides Yang and Williamson, is also on the Wednesday stage. She also was given very little opportunity to speak by the MSNBC goons, and we’ll just have to wait and see if she is given any more chance on CNN. Given that the folks at the DNC hate her as much as they hate Yang, it’s highly doubtful.

Otherwise, we just have to hope for as much air time as possible for Williamson, just because she’s so damn entertaining.

That is all.

Avenatti/Ioffe: The Perfect Democrat Ticket for 2020

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

I’m convinced she’s a vampire – she’s never going away. –  The Pantsuit Princess was in the news yet again on Monday, doing some public sit down talk before an audience of overpaying suckers.  Looking as if she was enjoying the relaxing effects of some sort of prescription medication, she had this to say when the moderator mis-identified Eric Holder as Cory Booker:

 

Oh, yeah, she also said she was running for president again in 2020, but hey, we already knew that, didn’t we?  Seriously, everyone does know she is going to make one more run, right?

And why shouldn’t she? After all, she’s only been humiliated twice in runs for the presidency, and it is well known that the third time is the charm. Yes, she’s getting old, but heck, she’s almost a year younger than Donald Trump, and quite a bit younger than other Dem contenders like Joe Biden and the Commie.

So why not give it another shot?  As she herself famously said, the typical Democrat voter is “stupid” and “easily manipulated,” and it has been proven time and time again that nobody is better at manipulating stupid people than a Clinton.  How else does one explain the audience attending her forum yesterday?

But hey, the Coughing Crook ain’t got nothin’ on this Julia Ioffe gal. – Appearing on CNN’s Reliable Sources show, hosted by fake journalist Jake Tapper, another fake journalist named Julia Ioffe had this to say in one of the show’s panel discussions:

This is what liberals call “bringing the country together in the wake of a tragedy.”  Or something.  To be fair to Ms. Ioffe, this isn’t even the most outrageous thing she’s ever said about President Donald Trump.  In December 2016 she issued a tweet accusing the then-President-elect of having sex with his daughter Ivanka.

This is the quality of guest Jake Tapper has on his program, and those of you who still cling to the belief that Tapper is some sort of real journalist need to look closely at the clip posted above and watch as he sits there like a bump on a log and says nothing as Ioffe makes her idiotic statement.

Hey, wait a minute:  Ioffe is shrill, stupid, fairly attractive and bigoted – she’s the perfect Democrat nominee for 2020! How is she not already a declared candidate?  Team her up with the Creepy Porn Lawyer, who is  mean, belligerent, bigoted and also quite stupid, and they’d make the perfect shrill, mindless, and humorless Democrat ticket. They’d be unbeatable in Hollywood, Portland, the Upper East Side of Manhattan, and in the office headquarters of CNN and the New York Times!

If elected, just imagine the cabinet they could put together:  Dr. Christine Ford at Health and Human Services; Rosie O’Donnell as Secretary of State; U.N. Ambassador Stormy Daniels; Cory Spartacus Booker as Secretary of Defense; National Security Advisor Michael Moore; Tom Arnold at Housing and Urban Development; and of course, Attorney General Kamala Harris.

It would be the death of America, but the 24-hour cable news channels would love it.

No more anchor babies? Maybe. – So many consequential stories end up being broken on Twitter these days, and this morning is no exception.  At 4:51 a.m. today, Axios put up this little gem:

Call it a Trumptober surprise – an announcement that he’s planning to end birthright citizenship via executive order, a move that would no doubt spark a national debate and series of court battles that would last throughout the coming year.  Of course, the problem with this approach is that an executive order could simply be reversed by the next Democrat or milquetoast Republican who gets elected to the presidency, just as President Trump has reversed so many of the executive orders that were issued by America’s Biggest Mistake, Barack Obama.  Obviously, convincing congress to pass a law would be much more perman…

Aaaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnnd in the ultimate segment for cable news, as I type this, Fox News is getting the opinions of some real experts on this subject, Diamond and Silk.  I love those two hilarious gals, but really?  This is who you seek out to comment on what would be a serious constitutional debate?

Hey, at least they didn’t ask Julia Ioffe or the Creepy Porn Lawyer for their opinion, although who can doubt both will appear on CNN or MSNBC to do exactly that later today?

It’s a clown show out there.  Vote Republican.

That is all.

Tuesday was an Epic Day for Conservatives on Twitter

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Before we get to the Twitter hijinks, here is today’s Public Service Announcement.:  David Bernstein posted the following at Instapundit today.  Next time some leftist nitwit tells you we now have a “far-right Court”, whip this out and prove him wrong:

WE DON’T HAVE A “RADICAL RIGHT-WING SUPREME COURT,” despite lots of mewing on the left to the contrary. Here are some things that would be at the top of the list for a radical right-wing Court: Here are the sorts of things that would be at the top of the agenda for a radical right-wing Court: (1) ban abortion nationwide as a violation of the right to life protected by the due process clause; (2) rule that publicly-provided (but not funded) education is unconstitutional because it inherently involves viewpoint discrimination by the government, or at least require vouchers for those who object to the public school curriculum; (3) overrule an 1898 precedent and completely abolish birthright citizenship; (4) Use the First Amendment as a sword to require “fairness” in the left-dominated media. Not only is the Supreme Court not about to do any of things, I don’t think any of these things would even get one vote on the current Court. Moreover, merely bringing the scope of Congress’s constitutional back to where it was, say, in 1935, which was already much broader than the original meaning of the Commerce power, probably wouldn’t get more than one or two votes. What you are looking at right now is a conservative Court that will only affect society on the margins, not a “radical right-wing” Court.

 

That point when the Pantsuit Princess went full-on Nazi.  Can the rest of her party be far behind?:

Come to think of it, the Kavanaugh smear campaign may have just demonstrated that the rest of her party is actually way ahead of her.

 

Example number 45,045 why President Donald Trump should never.  stop.  tweeting.  Not ever.:

…speaking of which…:

And then there was this…:

 

Meanwhile, your fake news media mavens were busy spinning the Nikki Haley resignation in the most negative way possible.:

 

Fake journalists gonna fake the news and there’s not a damn thing we can do about it.:

 

But hey, Jake Tapper works at CNN, after all, where the fake journalists get rewarded for spewing outrageous falsehoods like this.:

 

Here, Tom Nelson sums up the essence of the ongoing ClimateScam in 280 characters.:

Earlier in the day, yours truly had tweeted about the report Mr. Nelson was referencing.:

And to think that Ted Cruz is pounding poor Irish Bob O’Rourke for supporting a comparatively miserly 24 cent increase in the gas tax.

 

This is true, which is what makes her such a perfect Democrat senator.:

 

Finally, as he does so frequently, legendary actor James Woods perfectly captures the hypocrisy of the deranged left in a very succinct little tweet.:

Like I said:  Epic.

Jordan and Meadows Act Against Rosenstein is Transparently Disingenuous

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part I – Facebook’s revenues have begun to decline as conservative members, sick of years of abuse and discrimination coming from the evil minions of Mark Zuckerberg, have begun to abandon the site in droves, and new privacy regulations enacted in Europe begin to take a bite.  The result on Wednesday, after the company’s earnings released failed to meet expectations, was a 17 percent decline in its stock price, and a whopping loss of about $12 billion in net worth for Mr. Zuckerberg himself.  Man, no one could have seen this coming.  Oh, wait…

Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part II – Despite Facebook’s sucking wind, the stock markets in general jumped up in late trading after President Trump and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker held an impromptu press conference to announce they’d reached an agreement on a variety of tariff reductions and agreed to a process for lowering them further in the months ahead, with a goal of elimination of tariffs on many products entirely.  For the day, the Dow finished up by 172 points and the NASDAQ rose by 91.  The Winning never really does get old, does it?

Faking the news at CNN is a high stress assignment, Part I – The pressure of faking the news five days a week and sometimes even on weekends is apparently getting to veteran news faker Jake Tapper.  Mediaite has a report this morning detailing an incident in which Tapper went utterly ballistic last week at his “incompetent” staff during a commercial break after they rolled video clips in the wrong order as Tapper was doing his best to smear President Trump.  To be fair to Tapper, given that that’s pretty much all he and his staff do on their daily program, it’s easy to see why he’d be a little ticked off.  After all, smearing the duly elected President of the United States ought to be rote for these people by now.

Faking the news at CNN is a high stress assignment, Part II –  Finally, at long last, the White House took action to control the increasingly hostile and idiotic behavior of the White House press corps yesterday, banning CNN reporter Kaitlin Collins from an afternoon event after she has shouted inappropriate questions at the President, interrupting a morning event.  Naturally, all the other fake news outlets went berserk, accusing the White House of suppressing the press, which is a load of horse manure.

The White House move is neither inappropriate nor unprecedented.  Barack Obama, for instance, banned three reporters from Air Force One during the 2012 campaign after they’d written critical pieces about him.  And when Obama literally had a reporter tossed out of an event in real time for shouting inappropriate questions, the rest of the press corps cheered the action:

Whether these preening peacocks want them or not, every White House has enforced rules of decorum at the events it allows the press to cover.  So while all the fake journalists in the White House press corps were whining about Ms. Collins’ temporary banishment, any thinking American was applauding it as nothing more than a good and belated start.

Yes, let’s start paying foreigners for breaking U.S. law.  Genius idea. – New York Democrat Joe Crowley – you know, the clown who got his butt kicked by 28 year-old lame brain Alexandrea Ocasio Cortez in the Democrat primary a few weeks ago – told a gaggle of fawning fake reporters yesterday that he thinks the U.S. should compensate the illegal alien parents who have been temporarily separated from their children after they committed the crime of illegal entry against our country.  Just when you think Democrats cannot become any more anti-American than they’ve already become, they never fail to prove you wrong.

Congress’s Kabuki Dance with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein advances another step.  It’s a big one. – Just two days before the House of Representatives goes off on its annual month-long August recess, a group of 11 GOP representatives introduced articles of impeachment against him.  Led by conservatives Mark Meadows and Jim Jordan, the group accuses Rosenstein of “intentionally withholding documents and information from Congress, failure to comply with congressional subpoenas and abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).”

While all that is no doubt true – Rosenstein’s efforts to stonewall various congressional committees and his participation in the defrauding of the FISA courts have been well-chronicled here and elsewhere – the timing of this action is about as pathetic and transparently without intent to follow through as it could possibly be.  If these GOP congressmen had any real intention of enforcing congress’s authority to perform its oversight duties in the face of blatant DOJ obstruction, they’d have moved against Rosenstein months ago, given that the Deputy AG has been spitting on congress’s document requests for more than a year now.

“We’ve caught the Department of Justice hiding information, redacting information that they should not have redacted,” Jordan charged, adding that Rosenstein had attempted to intimidate House staffers with subpoenas.  “We’re tired of the Justice Department giving us the finger,” Jordan added. “The American people are sick of it.”

Yes, the American people are sick of it.  But the American people are also sick of members of congress being disingenuous with their constituents.  The introduction of these articles of impeachment, two days before a lengthy recess, with the full knowledge you do not have the votes to succeed (which Jordan and Meadows both admitted when discussing the subject no more than 10 days ago) and that it will all be a forgotten subject by the time you return to Washington DC after Labor Day, is about as disingenuous as it gets.

Tellingly, Congressman Jordan said he and Meadows had not even spoken to GOP House leadership about the impeachment articles, but said that “The American people are with us — that’s what matters.”

Keep pulling more stunts like this, Congressman, and the American people won’t be with you much longer.  Timing is very important on stuff like this, and the disingenuous timing for this stunt couldn’t be more obvious.

Just another day in a pox on all their houses America.

That is all.

Socialist/Fascist Lunatics in America’s Politics, Academia, and now on its Border

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hey, when the Braying Buffoon is right, she’s right.:  In an MSNBC interview with the anti-gay bigot Joy Reid, Mad Maxine Waters stumbled across the truth when the fake host asked if she was surprised that Chuck Schumer denounced her efforts to incite violence against Trump Administration officials and their supporters.

In an extraordinarily rare moment of semi-cogent thought, the California Congresswoman responded thusly:

“Well, I’m surprised that Chuck Schumer, you know, reached into the other house (of Congress) to do that. I’ve not quite seen that done before, but one of the things I recognize, being an elected official, is in the final analysis, leadership like Chuck Schumer will do anything that they think is necessary to protect their leadership.

Yes.  Exactly.  Schumer did not sincerely mean his condemnation of Waters’ un-American remarks, even when he said they were un-American.  He was simply attempting to protect his leadership position by trying to contain the damage.  Because that’s what congressional leaders in both parties do, sadly.

Reality can be a real b*tch, huh? – It isn’t just Maxine Waters – it turns out that Democrats were stumbling across reality all over the place on Sunday.  Appearing with the insipid Jake Tapper on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday morning, Illinois Senator Tammy Duckworth demonstrated a rare understanding about socialism’s ability to sell out here in what members of her party like to call Flyover Country.

When the preening peacock fake host asked her if she thinks 28 year-old Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s upset win over incumbent Joseph Crowley in New York’s Democrat primary last week means that socialism is the future of her Party (which it obviously is), Duckworth responded by correctly saying “I think it’s the future of the party in the Bronx, where she is.  I think that you can’t win the White House without the Midwest and I don’t think you can go too far to the left and still win the Midwest.”

Well, yes, that’s all true, but that reality sure isn’t keeping the Obama-era Democrat Party from showing its true socialist/fascist face all over the place.  Democrat politicians are like addicted smokers:  they see all this polling data, know their support from and of socialist/fascist fanatics is killing them, and yet, like a smoker opening up that next pack of cigs, they just keep opening up that next violent demonstration and electing that next 28 year-old ignoramus fanatic to be the new face of their party.

Speaking of electing socialist/fascist ignoramus fanatics, the people of Mexico did exactly that on Sunday, elevating the Castro/Chavez/Maduro clone Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) to the presidency, which he will assume on January 1.  While it is certainly hard to blame the people of Mexico wanting a new direction for their country, given the utter fecklessness of the current and past regimes in dealing with the drug gangs who effectively run half of the country, if AMLO governs based on his largely Marxist campaign promises, America will soon have another Venezuelan-style fascist disaster right on its southern border.

Isn’t that a lovely prospect?

The threat represented by AMLO, of course, makes building the wall along our border with Mexico all that more urgent.  And guess what?  In spite of the fake reporting from our national news media, that project is currently underway in three separate locations.

Using funds included in March’s Omnibus Budget Act, the Department of Homeland Security is currently building a 14 mile section of border wall in San Diego, a 2-mile section in Calexico, CA, and a 20-mile section in Santa Teresa, New Mexico.  The total cost of these three projects is projected to eat up less than 1/3rd of the $1.6 billion of wall funding included in the Omnibus bill, so we can expect to see similar wall projects targeted at drug-running and human-smuggling border hot spots to be kicked off in the months to come.

And speaking of socialist/fascist ignoramus fanatics, they aren’t all Democrat politicians.  Even more of them are professors at our nation’s universities, and now many of this particular breed of socialist/fascist fanatics have taken to advocating that Democrats, if they ever manage to assume control of both the presidency and congress again, pack the Supreme Court with an additional 6 justices.

The germinating event to this latest bit of leftist lunacy is, of course, last week’s retirement by “swing justice” Anthony Kennedy, who kept so many awful bits of leftwing jurisprudence alive during his 31 years on the court.  The prospect of indefensible decisions like Roe v. Wade possibly being reversed when Kennedy is replaced by a justice who adheres to intellectual and constitutional honesty has thrown the leftist world into a panic, and their response is to give voters even more reasons than they already had to vote for Republicans.

Think of how brainless it is to launch an obviously-coordinated campaign advocating this particular idea when Republicans control every lever of political power in the nation’s capital, and are likely to continue to do so after the November elections.  Why, a creative thinker like President Donald Trump might look at the fact that liberal professors are advocating to expand the number of justices on the nation’s highest court not as a threat, but as an opportunity.

And hey, why not?  It may come as a surprise to many that there is no constitutional requirement for the Supreme Court to consist of its current 9 justices.   That number is determined by acts of congress.  In fact, the Court originally consisted of 6 members, a Chief Justice and 5 associate justices.  A sixth associate was added in 1807, a seventh and eighth in 1837, and a ninth in 1863.  In 1869, congress recognized the problem with having an even total number of justices on the Court, and passed a law reducing the number of associate justices to the current eight.

The idea of packing the court with additional members to facilitate collectivist political goals is not new.  When a Court made up mostly of members over the age of 70 rejected several of his socialist “great society” programs in 1935, Franklin Roosevelt waited to be re-elected in 1936, and then, in 1937 proposed a law that would allow him to create an additional associate justice for every current member over the age of 70, arguing that a court made up of such elderly people could not possibly reflect the values of American society.

Given that pretty much every current “leader” of the Democrat Party today is over the age of 70, this is probably not the rationale they would prefer to put forward.  Just a guess.

Just another day in the Democrat Party is going cray-cray in its old age America.

That is all.

Every Day is “Opposite Day” in the Fake U.S. News Media

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

If you’re shocked at the utterly dishonest manner in which the entirety of the fake mainstream media is covering Spygate (thanks to President Trump for coining that shorthand term today), well, you need to pay closer attention to the Campaign Update and less attention to CNN.

Here’s the short message about this 100% “Opposite Day” coverage:  Get used to it, because it’s going to continue.  At this point in the saga, fake media outlets who have served as nothing but leak receptacles for the Deep State Cabal within the FBI/DOJ for the last 2 years have no choice but to keep coordinating fake narratives with the perps.

And boy, are the perps spreading a fake narrative.  Clapper’s on The View, telling the View Shrews that the Trump should be grateful for the FBI’s efforts to illegally surveil and entrap no fewer than half a dozen members of his campaign.

Ex-FBI Director and current teenage drama queen James Comey’s out there issuing tweets like this one…

…which of course perfectly describes the 8 years of Obama that Americans had had enough of when they went to the polls on November 8, 2016 and elected Donald Trump to the presidency.  But Comey’s either too dense or just too dishonest to realize it.

Interestingly, John Brennan, who the President went after on his own Twitter account on Tuesday, has remained oddly quiet since his Cicero-quoting outburst on Sunday.  But rest assured that can’t last – this is one seditious drama queen who, like Clapper and Comey, simply can’t contain himself.

And hey, when you have The View Shrews, Jake Tapper and the other class clowns at CNN, and the entire staffs at the New York Times and Washington Post eagerly waiting to take dictation from you and spread your false narrative, why not?

The most hilarious part of this comes when some fake reporter or opinionist manages to take a step back and realize that for President Trump, the mass media immolation that is going on is completely to his advantage.  Times fake columnist Frank Bruni went through an incredibly rare moment of clarity on Tuesday with a piece titled “Robert Mueller, You’re Starting to Scare Me.”  In this semi-lucid screed, Bruni frets that all the media focus on the Mueller investigation actually helps Trump enact his agenda by distracting the public’s attention away from all the other things he’s getting accomplished.

Well, welcome to the party, pal.  I’ve been writing about this reality for a freaking year now.  Good of you to suddenly try to catch up.

But trust me, Bruni’s fret is just a flash in the pan at the NYTimes, a one-off that won’t be repeated because it does not fit the narrative the Deep State Cabal is pushing.  Expect to see far less semi-clear thought pieces like Bruni’s, and far more utterly backwards reasoning in stories like this “analysis” from the fake newsers at the ongoing massive dumpster fire that is NBC News:

 

This is me, slapping my damn head reading that tweet.  Ho Lee Cow.

That is all.
