The Evening Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Have you noticed you haven’t heard much about “Russia Collusion” lately? – Come to think of it, you have noticed that, right?
Right. Over the past month, the fake news stories on the front pages of the New York Times and the Washington Post detailing tales from always unidentified “sources” about how Special Counsel Robert Mueller is “closing in on Donald Trump,” or how some Mueller action is “bad news for Donald Trump,” or how Mueller’s indictments of another dozen or so Russian ham sandwiches spells “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump” have suddenly disappeared.
To some extent that has been because of all the hysteria surrounding the latest Democrat/media mounted smear, this time of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, but that’s far from the only reason.
Know what the other reason – the main reason – for this sudden lack of fake reporting on the Mueller investigation is? Simple: It’s because Mueller is continuing to wind his Russia Collusion smear down.
Today, we saw two big indicators that this is the case:
- This story at the extremely fake The Hill website, detailing the fact that two more Clinton/Obama hack lawyers have resigned from Mueller’s staff; and
- The 15,000 word New York Times #fakenews story alleging all manner of tax evasion and tax fraud on Trump’s part back in the 1990s.
Trust me, these two stories are intimately tied to one another.
Think about the Mueller thing for a minute: This makes five hack lawyers who have left his staff since July. Lawyers don’t leave a project like the Special Counsel’s office if there is a ton of work left to be done. Lawyers start bailing out of these things like this when the work starts winding down, along with the billable hours.
Now combine the rapidly diminishing staff with the fact that Mueller agreed a few weeks ago to accept written answers from the White House on the whole Russia Collusion fairy tale, and has since been making noises about being reluctant to really pursue the mounting of what would be a hopeless obstruction of justice case over the firing of James Comey, and what are you left with? You’re left with a sinking ship from which these hack lawyers are looking to bail out for greener, more billable pastures.
Seeing the Democrat/media-invented Russia Collusion fantasy play winding down and the Democrat/media-mounted smear of Judge Kavanaugh falling apart, into the breach plunges the New York Times with its year-long “investigation” of the Trump family’s financial dealings during the last century. If you believe the timing of this is purely coincidental, please leave me your phone number in the comments section below because I have some prime, unsaleable property out in West Texas I want to talk with you about.
Obviously, the Times has been holding this story for breaking at exactly the “right” time, since the collapse of one smear always necessitates the mounting of another out there in the fake news world they occupy.
Of course, the fatal flaw in the Times’ latest smear is obvious: All of the financial transactions about which their fake journalists and editors are alleging fraud were exhaustively audited in real time by not only the IRS but also by the relevant state tax departments and found, with minor adjustments, to be fully in compliance with the state and federal tax laws.
But hey, smears don’t have to be true – if they did, Brett Kavanaugh would have been confirmed to the Supreme Court and already sworn in. No, a Democrat/media smear merely has to be plausible enough for a few days to create the desired level of outrage among the Democrat Party’s demented, hopelessly ignorant far-left voter base. When viewed through that outrage lens, the Times story will no doubt produce the desired effect, at least for awhile.
But viewed through the lens of reality, that story plus the news of the latest staff departures means the Mueller investigation is rapidly winding down, and the Democrats and their media toadies are casting about for their next line of attack on President Trump. The Times tax story will have a very short shelf life, so expect another fake smear to be mounted in about a week.
Just another day in Trump Derangement Syndrome America.
That is all.
