John McCain: Bitter ’til the Bitter End, and Even Beyond

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

A sad and bitter man ’til the sad and bitter end.  And beyond, apparently. – John McCain always wore his bitterness on his sleeve, generating and holding grudges like no one else in the nation’s capital.  Given his experiences during the Vietnam conflict, it was easy to see why that was the case, and I had planned to make no mention of this reality of McCain’s personality in an effort to avoid speaking ill of the dead.

But then, on a long drive Wednesday afternoon, a radio commentator reported the news that McCain and his family have chosen to ban his extremely loyal 2008 running mate, Sarah Palin, from attending the dead Senator’s funeral.  Thus does McCain reach out from whatever lies on the other side of this life in a pitiful and petty effort to settle one final grudge.

The wonder is why there was any grudge to begin with.  Sarah Palin was nothing but the loyal soldier to McCain, both throughout their failed campaign together and in the decade that has passed since.  She never had anything but glowing praise for the man, and issued this statement last Saturday upon learning of his passing:

Gracious, glowing, praising the man into whose moribund campaign she injected a little life, though not enough to get him across the finish line in the face of a horrifically negative slander campaign mounted against them both by the Democrats and the fake national news media.  McCain was initially gracious towards Palin after the defeat, but over the years became convinced his loss was somehow her fault.  Earlier this year he told a fawning fake reporter that choosing Palin as his running mate was a mistake, speculating that Joe Lieberman, a Democrat, would have made a better choice.  Yeah, sure – all those Republican delegates at the convention would have been just thrilled with the prospect of having to vote against all of their core beliefs so their nominee could have his coveted “collegiality” on the ticket.

Thus, McCain reaches out one final time to settle what was in his warped mind an old score.  It is easy to understand his feelings about President Trump; this, on the other hand, is purely mean-spirited and petty.

So let’s all pray that John McCain can Rest In Peace in the next life since he so obviously never could in this one.

Democrat/Media Playbook, Page 1: Play the race card. – GOP Florida gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis hadn’t even gotten his general election campaign off the ground before the fake news media and rancid Democrats started throwing their playbook at him.  After he used the common phrase “monkey this up” during an interview Wednesday morning on Fox News, the Democrat/Media axis of propaganda pounced, claiming the term is “racist” since the Democrat nominee, Andrew Gillum, happens to be an African American.

Of course, the Democrats and media are lying here, but hey, that’s what they do.  DeSantis, referring to the undisputed fact that Gillum is an admitted “Democrat Socialist”, said the following:

“We’ve got to work hard to make sure that we continue Florida going in a good direction. The last thing we need to do is to monkey this up by trying to embrace a socialist agenda with huge tax increases and bankrupting the state.”  A pretty reasonable statement that refers to Gillum’s admitted political beliefs, and is obviously not directed in any way at his skin color.

But skin color is constantly at the top of every leftist Democrat’s mind, and so DeSantis’s use of the word “monkey” had become a media-generated fake controversy before he was able to get back into his car following the interview.  I don’t know about anyone else, but if I were a Black man I think I’d be highly offended that every Democrat and fake journalist in America equates me with a monkey.  Because that is what this really is all about.

CNN:  The King of Fake News and damn proud of it. – Management at CNN, the fakest fakety-fake #fakenews outlet on the face of the earth, continued to cling to its latest completely fake story for a third day after it was revealed to be fake.  The obvious hope at CNN is that they can just ride out the storm until the rest of the fake news media forgets about the story – and in reality, most of the rest of the fake news media never paid any attention to it in the first place.

What CNN is going through right now is the direct result of relying on anything Lanny Davis has to say as being true.  Lanny Davis has made a fabulous living for the last 25 years being a professional liar on television.  He has lied for a living on behalf of a seemingly endless array of skunks and snakes, starting with Bill and Hillary Clinton and now doing it for ex-Trump lawyer Michael Cohen.

CNN stupidly aired a “breaking news” story, authored in part by shameless hack Carl Bernstein, claiming that “multiple sources” had told them that President Trump knew in advance about the infamous “Trump Tower meeting” his son and a couple of campaign officials conducted with some Russians in October 2016.  Davis was one of those “multiple sources,” and it is very likely that the other “source” is Cohen himself.

Early this week, Davis admitted on live television that he had lied to Bernstein, and that neither he nor Cohen have any actual knowledge about the story’s allegation against the President.  Any decent, real “news” outlet, when caught so blatantly with its pants down around its figurative ankles, would simply retract the story and ban the source that burned it from its airwaves.  But this is CNN, where the professional liar Davis has been a “source” for all manner of fake stories for a quarter of a century.  When you’re into news fakery as deeply as CNN is, you don’t retract and apologize for the fake story, you just keep lying and standing by your fake source and fake reporters.

By the way, CNN’s ratings for the first two weeks of August were down another 12% from July, as viewers abandon the fake news network in droves for Fox or MSNBC, or perhaps even for a little peace in their lives.  CNN’s prime time lineup is now regularly beaten in the ratings by re-runs of “American Pickers” and “Counting Cars” on the History Channel.  If this trend continues, pretty soon the only viewers CNN will have left are the captive audiences of beaten down travelers in our nation’s airports.

Just another day in fake news media America.

The Fake News Just Keeps Getting Faker

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

South Africa is headed for a civil war, and your fake news media wants to studiously ignore the story.  The government there, in the process of implementing what it calls “land reforms,” has taken to forcibly seizing land from white farmers without paying them just compensation for it, and your fake news media is now calling you a “conspiracy theorist” if you point out that incontrovertible fact.

The “land reform” process has become so heated now that many white farmers have been violently removed from their land without any compensation at all and even murdered in the process, and your fake news media is now calling the President of the United States a racist for tasking his Secretary of State to look into the matter.

Now, think about why this is the case.  Why is your fake news media here in America so intent upon NOT informing the American public about this clear-cut case of racist atrocity being perpetrated by the South African ruling party?  The answer is what it always is whenever our fake news media outlets band together to ignore an inconvenient story:  It doesn’t fit the media narrative, which exists to support the ultimate goals of the Democrat Party.

The ultimate goal of the Democrat Party in this case is to eventually do exactly what is happening in South Africa today here in America.  The South African government justifies its actions by saying it is exacting reparations for past atrocities committed by the whites there against the black population. It is an incontrovertible fact that those atrocities did happen, so our fake news media believes the current black government in South Africa is perfectly justified to do whatever it wants. Because in the leftist mindset that dominates our nation’s fake news rooms, that is “justice.”

This is exactly where the social justice movement in America demands the Democrat Party eventually take the United States.  Same talking points, same sort of “solution”:  take money, land and whatever else the government can ultimately seize from the white population and give it to the the black population in the name of social justice.  Because, after all, slavery is indisputably a sad, tragic part of our country’s legacy.

This is not a conspiracy theory, it’s not speculation, it is the goal of the fastest-growing voter segment of the Democrat Party’s base.  It just is.  This is a fact, not a theory.  So the fake news media doesn’t want to report on what’s happening in South Africa today because the Democrat Party doesn’t want the population in this country thinking about the eventual ramifications of this ethnic cleansing operation for our own nation.

We see the same fake news media dynamic taking place with the murder of Iowa college student Mollie Tibbetts by an illegal alien who had lived in this country and absorbed our social welfare benefits for years under a false name.  If you point out that reality, point out the fact that this illegal alien had somehow obtained a fake social security card and state id and had had various jobs with various employers using those fake documents, you are both a conspiracy theorist and a racist.

So dedicated are the three major networks to denying their viewers the facts of this case, which is now several days old, that not one of them has mentioned the fact that the murderer is in fact in this country illegally on their nightly news casts.  When Kellyanne Conway pointed out these facts to the dimwitted Chris Cuomo on CNN the other night, Cuomo responded that she was “politicizing” the issue.

Huh?  Pointing out the simple facts of a murder case is supposed to be what real “news” organizations do as a first step to engaging in actual “journalism.”  This is a concept that is utterly and completely lost in today’s fake news media.

When the murderer’s goofy lawyer appeared on Fox News with Martha McCallum Thursday evening, he repeatedly accused her of spouting “rhetoric” whenever she pointed out any simple fact of the case.  This talking point was no doubt fed to him by the Democrats – or perhaps someone at CNN – but it’s a lousy talking point and McCallum was, to her great credit, having none of it.

Why are the fake news media outlets so intent on denying their audiences the basic facts about this case? Again, because it doesn’t support their narrative or the ultimate goals of the Democrat Party.  That ultimate goal is completely open borders and voting rights for anyone who wishes to enter this country.  The Democrat Party leaders know they are rapidly losing the hearts and minds of actual American citizens and must have a large injection of new voters from other countries in order to survive.

This need has been exacerbated over the last 18 months by the policies of Donald Trump, which have led to millions of people getting off the government dole and into the work force.  Working people who pay taxes are far less likely to vote for Democrats promising nothing but “free stuff” from the government, because the working people are the ones who ultimately have to pay for all that largesse, which is not actually “free” at all at the end of the day.

So, the fake news media must maintain the fictional narrative that massive illegal immigration is good because these are all just peaceful people looking to mow your lawns and clean your houses for substandard wages, after all.  And golly, we are a nation of immigrants!

They always manage to leave the word “legal” out of that last sentence.

Then you have the case of Lanny Davis, the old Clinton shill who has spent the last 25 years of his career as a professional liar for various bad people, and who now represents Michael Cohen.  A few weeks ago, Davis told various media outlets – CNN, the NYTimes, The Washington Post, MSNBC, the Daily Beast, all the usual fake news suspects – that his newest client was willing to tell Robert Mueler and his gang of Clinton/Obama thugs that President Trump knew in advance of the infamous “Trump Tower Meeting” in October of 2016.  This was the meeting in which Donald Trump, Jr. met with some Russians, ostensibly because they claimed to have damaging information on Hillary Clinton.

All these fake news outlets and many others went wild with that story, keeping it prominent in the news cycle for days and touting it as “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.”  Finally, these fake journalists imagined they had the smoking gun that would end in the impeachment of the President of the United States.  There was just one problem:  As usual, Lanny Davis was lying.

Earlier this week, after his client had copped a plea with U.S. attorneys from the Southern District of New York, Davis went on CNN and completely reversed that story.  Not only was his client NOT willing to say any such thing to Mueller or anyone else, Cohen in fact has no knowledge of that meeting at all.

Now, if there was any semblance of “journalism” going on at any of those fake news operations, they would have very quickly gotten corrections to their previous false stories on the air on in their pages.  But here we sit, four days after Davis’s story reversal, and not a single one of those fake news outlets has invested a second in correcting the fake record they spewed all over the world a few weeks back.

Because, guess what?  The Lanny Davis correction doesn’t support the fake news narrative or the ultimate goal of the Democrat Party, which is of course the removal of Donald Trump from office.

It’s pathetic, it’s disgusting, it’s tragic and it all threatens the very survival of our nation at the end of the day.  The death of journalism in this country has led directly to the highest degree of polarization our society has seen since the Civil War.  When it has become almost impossible for most ordinary Americans to obtain the most basic facts about any given story, then the false narratives invented and pushed by the most radical and loudest factions in our society are likely to prevail.

Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi propaganda minister, had a famous quote about all of this:

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The  lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

He would fit right in as news director or chief editor at CNN or the NYTimes.

Just another day in fake news media America.

The Mueller Investigation is “Seinfeld”: A Popular Show About Nothing

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Coincidence?  Probably not. – ICE agents found, arrested and deported the last known Nazi WWII-era prison guard living in America.  The Democrat Party, its paramilitary arm, Antifa, and it’s propaganda arm in the national fake news media all want to abolish ICE.  Let that sink in.  They also all want to confiscate your guns and abolish the 2nd amendment.  Think about why that is.

The Robert Mueller Special Counsel Juggernaut thus far… – Ok, lessee here.  To this point, here is what Bob Mueller and his gang of Clinton/Obama hacks have produced thus far in their 16 month-long “investigation”, i.e., Witch Hunt:

– Obtained convictions of Paul Manafort for a series of financial crimes committed a decade ago while Manafort was working for Ukrainian clients alongside…wait for it… Tony Podesta, the brother of Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta;

– Had to farm out the Michael Cohen case to the Southern District of New York due to its irrelevance to anything having to do with the Special Counsel’s charge;

– Has now postponed any sentencing of Gen. Mike Flynn for the FIFTH TIME since Flynn entered his guilty plea for “lying to the FBI,” a plea that has now been conclusively shown to have been given under duress as Mueller and his thugs threatened Flynn’s family;

– Is begging to get 30-90 days in jail for George Papadopoulos, who the fake news media tried for months to portray as the very justification for the FBI’s illegal spying on the Trump Campaign during 2016, but has now been conclusively revealed as little more than a bit player, if a player at all;

– Has indicted about 30 Russian ham sandwiches who will never come to America to stand trial;

– Was forced to desperately postpone the trial against the lone Russian ham sandwich that did show up for trial because he and his thugs were completely unprepared to make a case;

– Has in 16 months brought ZERO charges that in any way relate to allegations of Trump “collusion” with Russia, the ostensible justification for the investigation in the first place;

– Has in 16 months delivered ZERO evidence to support rampant media allegations of obstruction of justice on the part of President Trump.

This is a clown show, folks. Or a better analogy is that it’s like Seinfeld – a show that everyone watches and laughs about and talks about the next morning over the water cooler at work, but which is ultimately about nothing.  A big, ol’ flaming bag of nothing.

The Cohen thing is different in that it is at least about something real, not about a fantasy concocted in concert by the Democrats and the fake news media.  The problem for Trump haters is that it, like the charges against Manafort, is also about ancient history, two alleged affairs private citizen Trump supposedly had with a porn star and a centerfold more than a decade before he ran for office.

Again, the charges to which Cohen pleads are irrelevant to anything related to the Trump campaign or presidency – tax fraud, bank fraud and one charge of a campaign finance violation.  The problem with that last charge is that no money ever passed through any account in any way related to the Trump campaign.  The overly-zealous prosecutors in the case are going to try to claim that the payoffs to the porn star and centerfold were made in an effort to “influence” the 2016 election, and thus amount to a contribution in-kind to the Trump campaign.

Okayyyyyyyyy…do the Democrats and fake news media really want to go there?  Think about the possible implications of this line of reasoning for a moment.  If one accepts this logic, then basically every minute of programming that aired on CNN during 2016 would have to be classified as an illegal in-kind contribution to the Clinton campaign, not to mention 90% of the fake reporting by the rest of the fake news media.  This is billions of dollars worth of outright advocacy designed to – guess what? – influence the 2016 election.

By the same logic, every moment that Jim Acosta and April Ryan and 90% of the White House press corps spend on White House grounds should be accurately classified as opposition research for the Democrat Party and efforts to influence the 2018 mid-term and 2020 presidential elections.  Because if we’re going to be honest about this, that is all they are doing.  They are nothing more than operatives for the Democrat Party.

The other speculation is that the Cohen plea deal gives Democrats a reason to pursue impeachment should they take control of the House in November.  Again, do the Democrats really want to go there?  These are the same Democrats who steadfastly refused to condemn then-President Bill Clinton for having sex with a 22 year-old intern in the Oval Office, and then brutally bullying her to remain silent about it.  Most of them still refuse to condemn Clinton to this day, in fact.

The Democrats in 1998 couldn’t offer up a single vote in favor of impeaching Clinton when he was brought up on proven charges of obstruction of justice, perjury, lying to federal investigators, and abuse of FBI files.  Not one.  Single.  Vote.  But now they’re going to try to impeach a Republican president for the “crime” of entering into a hush money agreement over two alleged affairs from 10-12 years ago?

Without doubt, Trump’s behavior, if true, is wholly immoral and should be condemned on those grounds.  But as has been pointed out many, many times, Americans did not elect Donald Trump on the illusion he was a choir boy.  Besides, the Democrats voluntarily and unanimously surrendered any moral authority in these matters 20 years ago, and there is just no going back from that.

Despite all the media frenzy flying around today, Donald Trump will serve out this term and most likely end up being a highly successful two-term president.

The blood of Mollie Tibbets is on Congress’s hands. – Fake news media outlets all over America feverishly worked to avoid mentioning yesterday’s revelation that University of Iowa Student Mollie Tibbets was murdered by an illegal alien, because of course they did.  Doesn’t fit the narrative, after all.  One MSNBC Democrat spokesperson who nobody’s ever heard of refused to even mention Ms. Tibbets’ name, referring to her only as “some girl in Iowa…who Fox News is talking about.”

Many on the right, meanwhile, rushed in to blame Ms. Tibbets’ killing on the Democrats and their refusal to cooperate in the building of the border wall, but this is overly simplistic.  The truth is that the the current insane construct of our nation’s immigration laws has been a bipartisan enterprise that has been constructed by a series of congresses and presidents of both parties going all the way back to the 1960s.  Who can ever forget, for example, the “Gang of 8” that led the fight for a horrific comprehensive immigration reform bill in 2013?  That despicable exercise, which would have provided overarching amnesty, institutionalized open borders and turned the nation over to the Democrat Party into perpetuity,  included the very worst the U.S. Senate has to offer, including Republicans like Jeff Flake and John McCain, and Democrats like Chuck Schumer and Dick Durbin.

So you can’t just blame the Democrats for this murder and the ongoing crime spree by those living illegally in our country – the GOP establishment wing deserves all sorts of credit for it as well.  This has been a purely bipartisan exercise.

Just another day in Mueller is Seinfeld America.

Hey, Remember That Blue Wave? Yeah, it Ain’t Happening.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this #Winning yet? Part I – The President, First Lady, Vice President and Secretary of State all turned out to Andrews Air Force Base at 2:00 a.m. to welcome home Kim Dong Chul, Kim Hak Song and Tony Kim, three Americans who had been held as prisoners for years by the North Korean government.  Their release was a show of good faith by the Crazy Little Fat Guy, Kim Jong Un, in advance of next month’s face-to-face negotiation with President Trump related to the de-nuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

The sight of one of the men hugging Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who had flown halfway across the world to secure their release earlier in the week, was enough to bring tears to the eyes of any thinking person.  Democrats and fake reporters were, of course, unmoved, given that these three men were released as the result of the efforts of President Trump, after having languished in a North Korean prison throughout much of the administration of media hero Barack Obama.

By the way, if you’re sitting there wondering why this kind of thing keeps happening under this President, when we never saw anything similar the previous 8 years, it’s because this President is trying.  It really is that simple.

Your news media in action!  Part I – The deranged lunatics at the New York Times, meanwhile, published a piece Wednesday morning lambasting Secretary Pompeo for being “AWOL” as President Trump announced he was ending U.S. participation in the horrible Iran deal.  Later in the day, after some no-doubt “anonymous source” (because that’s the only kind of sources the New York Times has anymore) informed the morons at the Times that Pompeo was actually rescuing a bunch of political prisoners, the fake newspaper published a piece that was actually positive about the prisoner release. What a dumpster fire.

Your news media in action!  Part II – Speaking of huge, raging dumpster fires, I give you NBC News.  Former Trump attorney Michael Cohen has been the subject of so much fake reporting by the Peacock Network that he felt the need to get on his Twitter account to try to shame the fake news operation into correcting some of his horrible reporting:

That’s right:  NBC News is so fake and lacking in any editorial standards whatsoever that it can’t even identify the correct guy named Michael Cohen before filing its reports.  I mean, dayum, people.

Your Democrats in action! – But the most disgusting spectacle of the day was, without question, watching as some of the very worst people on the face of the earth, like Kamala Harris, Mark Warner and Dianne Feinstein, questioned the nominee for CIA Director, Gina Haspel, about her “moral compass.”  My goodness.

Tired of all this #Winning yet?  Part II.  That Blue Wave is circling down the toilet. – Speaking of Democrats, that much-ballyhooed “Blue Wave” that all the Democrat operatives in the fake news media were telling you was an absolute certainty a few months ago has pretty much fallen off of even CNN’s fake news story rotation.  Maybe that’s because even CNN’s own congressional generic preference poll, which just four months ago claimed the Democrats led Republicans by a whopping 16 points, yesterday came in at just a 3 point Democrat lead, which happens to be within the fake poll’s margin of error.

The CNN result is pretty consistent with the other generic congressional polls, all of which have narrowed up substantially since the first of the year.  Which should come as no surprise to anyone.

I told you back in December that the whole “Blue Wave” thing was just wishful thinking on the part of the Democrats and their media support group.  I predicted then that as the tax cuts kicked into working peoples’ paychecks, the good economic growth news continued coming in, and other good things continued to happen, those numbers would narrow substantially.  I even predicted that the situation with North Korea, which at that time appeared to be a major crisis verging on a military conflict, would in fact be ultimately resolved on largely U.S. terms without a shot being fired.

Guess what’s about to happen?  The situation with North Korea is about to be resolved without a shot being fired.  Guess what will happen to those generic ballot polls when that happy result comes about?  The small Democrat lead will disappear entirely, and by August you’re going to be seeing polls showing that measure has moved into the GOP’s favor.  Hell, at this rate, you might start seeing such polls in June.

But that’s not all that’s about to happen in the coming weeks and months.  The Mueller investigation is about to come to a head, and will be ultimately resolved with no legitimate charges filed against the President.  Mueller may end up writing a report in which he tries to provide the Democrats some basis for an impeachment effort – which has been the goal of this “investigation” since day 1 – but that won’t matter because the Democrats aren’t going to win back control of the House in November.

“But wait, there’s more!”, to quote the late, great Billy Mays.  We’re also about to see the issuance of the final report from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, and the subsequent issuance of grand jury subpoenas and indictments targeting – guess who? – not the Trump Administration, but a bunch of Clinton and Obama loyalists.

Bottom line, the 2018 mid-terms will definitely be a “sea-change” election, but not the “blue wave” kind the fake news media was loudly touting a few months ago.  No, the “sea-change” in this campaign will be the massive shift that takes place in the generic congressional ballot polling between last December and this coming November.

And the beauty of all of this is that the Democrat Party leaders are so stupid and out of touch that they decided last year to discard anything resembling a policy agenda and hang their Party’s entire future on promoting hatred for Donald Trump.

Isn’t life great?

Just another day in that Blue Wave ain’t gonna happen America.

That is all.

The Deep State has Won a Few Battles, but is Losing its War on Trump

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

So, let’s review the evolution of the Deep State Cabal’s strategy to rid the D.C. establishment of this troublesome interloper, Donald J. Trump:

  • It began as an effort to fix the 2016 general election – devising a tortured rationale to let the Pantsuit Princes off the hook on her email crimes; spending millions on a fake Trump dossier designed to damage her opponent’s reputation; feeding debate questions to the Coughing Crook in advance; paying an assortment of women to come out of the woodwork to accuse Trump of having affairs in the weeks leading up to Election Day, etc., etc.
  • Having failed in that effort, it morphed into an effort to create so many leaks by Obama holdovers and other deep states inserts into the Administration that it would make it impossible for Trump to govern.  Trump and his few loyalists responded by doubling down on their agenda.
  • Having failed in that effort, it morphed in the spring of 2017 into the Rosenstein/Comey conspiracy to dummy up false grounds for the appointment of a Special Counsel in the person of their best buddy, Robert Mueller.  Mueller’s initial goal was to find criminal wrongdoing by the President.  The problem there was that there is no such crime called “collusion,” and no president can be prosecuted for exercising his constitutional authority, meaning there is no case to be made for “obstruction of justice.”  Trump and his loyalists doubled down on their agenda again.
  • Having failed in that effort, but with congressional preference polling late in 2017 indicating the Democrats had a chance to win control of the House of Representatives in the midterm elections, Mueller’s goal morphed into an effort to build a plausible case for impeachment, and to leak as much damaging information has he could to a cooperating national news media in order to drive down Trump’s public approval numbers.  If he and his media agents could drive the President’s approval ratings down into the low-30s or even into the 20s, even Republicans would likely be willing to vote for impeachment.  Thus, we saw the efforts to claim Trump is mentally unstable, then the efforts to claim his health is bad, then the former playmates and porn stars crawling out of the woodwork to claim 10-12 year-old affairs, and on and on.  Once again, Trump and his loyalists doubled-down on the agenda.

But a funny thing happened to Mueller on his way to this latest goal:  his tactics became so blatantly abusive, and the media’s efforts to justify them so transparently and laughably phony, that the public has become repulsed by the tactics, not the target.  That reaction to the abusive charade, combined with a booming economy and a raft of foreign policy achievements thought to have been unimaginable in the previous administration, has resulted in the President’s public approval ratings climbing to their highest level in 14 months.  In fact, in the daily Rasmussen survey – the lone periodic poll that focuses on likely voters – Mr. Trump’s approval as of today sits at 51%.

So, yet again, the Cabal’s strategy, as implemented by the Special Counsel, the deep state thugs embedded within DOJ and the FBI, and supported by the national fake news media, has miserably failed.

Recently, though, we’ve seen the strategy shift yet again.  The newest strategy, which appears to have been implemented around mid-March, is to viciously assault and character assassinate anyone loyal to Trump in order to ultimately make it impossible for Trump to find people willing to work for him, and thus make it impossible for him to govern.  Call it Chaos Strategy #2.

It started with Scott Pruitt, the extremely effective EPA Administrator, who has been the subject of a withering assault by disloyal EPA employees, the radical environmental community, and the fake news media.  The media effort has been led by the degenerates at the New York Times, who have now filed more than 60 hit pieces targeting Pruitt in the last month.  At one point a few weeks ago, it appeared that the President was preparing to cave to this media pressure and fire Pruitt, but changed his mind at the last minute and stood firm.

That will ultimately prove to be a crucial decision point in all of this.  Had Trump caved on Pruitt, then the walls may well have eventually fallen in around him, because other senior people under assault – like Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke and Chief of Staff John Kelly – might have lost confidence in the President having their backs and jumped ship.

This Chaos Strategy #2 is what the repulsive character assassination of Admiral Ronnie Jackson was about, it’s what the assault on new National Security Advisor John Bolton’s integrity was all about, it’s what the Senate Democrats’ demonization of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was all about, it’s what the jack-booted raid on the home, office and hotel room of Trump attorney Michael Cohen was about, and it’s even what the White House Correspondents Dinners attacks on Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Kellyanne Conway were about.

Because Trump stood firm on Pruitt, this Chaos Strategy #2 is rapidly failing as well.  Yeah, they claimed a scalp with Admiral Jackson’s withdrawal, but today his main accuser, Vice President Mike Pence’s personal physician, Dr. Jennifer Pena, was forced to resign.  And yes, Cohen remains under assault, but there’s a long way to go on that situation as well.

Meanwhile, Bolton is the new National Security Advisor, Pompeo is now firmly ensconced as Secretary of State, Zinke is still reorganizing the Interior Department and its priorities, and Pruitt is still repealing the anti-American legacy of Barack Obama’s EPA.

So the Chaos Strategy #2 is failing as miserably as all the preceding Deep State strategies failed.  Meanwhile, prospects for the much-touted Democrat “Blue Wave” election wins in November are rapidly fading, the President is on the verge of one of the most astounding foreign policy victories in American history related to Korea, and the main report from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz will be dropped within days.  That’s when the fun will really begin.

The Deep State’s gonna need another new strategy, and fast.

That is all.

NBC News is a Gigantic Dumpster Fire, and the Deep State Cabal Loves it

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – The ADP estimate on private sector jobs additions for April came in at 204,000, beating estimates that it would tally 190,000.  The Trump economy just keeps humming along.

NBC News is just a gigantic dumpster fire these days, but then you already knew that.  In addition to all the sexual harassment allegations hovering around its icon Tom Brokaw, NBC’s fake news division suffered yet another huge embarrassment by reporting a story that was so, so, so fake that even Special Counsel Robert Mueller apparently insisted they go back and correct it.  That, friends, is seriously fake news.

Around noon, MSNBC – NBC’s aggressively-fake news affiliate – reported that Mueller’s office has been wire-tapping the phone calls of former Trump attorney Michael Cohen, whom the Special Counsel Gestapo had already subjected to jack-booted thug raids on his home, office and hotel room in early April.  NBC breathlessly reported all afternoon that the intercepted phone calls from Cohen included – gasp! – one to the White House.  The White House immediately questioned the story, given that any such wiretap would clearly be illegal unless the SC had obtained a warrant from a federal judge, and Rudy Giuliani even predicted on Fox News mid-afternoon that the story would turn out to be fake.

But NBC clung to its fake “reporting” for about four and a half hours until, at about 4:30, the weaselly Chuck Todd was forced to admit that, in fact, Cohen’s phones had not been tapped, which would mean  that the Mueller Gestapo had been able to actually listen in to his conversations.  The truth – as far as the Mueller team is capable of speaking the truth, anyway – is that Cohen’s phone activity has been monitored by what is known as a “pen register”, which simply allows the feds to note the phone numbers he is calling.  This massive intrusion into a U.S. citizen’s privacy apparently requires no warrant.

This incident, of course, is just one of dozens of such instances we have seen over the last 16 months, in which some national fake news outlet reports some explosive “BREAKING NEWS!!!!”  that, if true, would be damaging to President Trump or someone around him, is allowed to linger in the public space for hours, often days, and then is forced to be retracted by the reporting fake news entity.

Hey, remember all those similar incidents that took place during the 8 years of Barack Obama?  No?  Neither do I.  Because this pretty much never happened during the Obama years.

Here’s why:  The fake news establishment loved Barack Obama.  Many in the White House press corps literally worshiped him – remember how so many of them compared Obama to Jesus Christ upon his election? – they probably prayed to him on a daily basis.  Barack Obama was the master, and the fake news reporters were his loyal lap dogs.

Lap dogs don’t go around pissing in their master’s lap – if they do, their master is going to stop petting them and stroking them and cooing baby talk into their ears, which is what Obama did with the journalistic profession for 8 years, in the process killing it dead.

These same lap dogs turned into a pack of rabid pit bulls when Donald Trump won the 2016 election.  They wake up every morning frothing at the mouth, intent upon doing anything they can to help Robert Mueller and the deep state thugs – like Rod Rosenstein – who remain in the FBI and Justice Department work to bring down this duly elected President.  Any time some “anonymous source” “with knowledge of the special counsel’s investigation” tosses them some potentially damaging nugget of “information”, they rush it into print or on-air without editorial oversight or the slightest care about whether or not it is true.

Because to today’s fake news media, “truth” is a relative concept.  Something is only “true” if it is damaging to the President or those around him and thus fits the narrative the media/deep state is attempting to brainwash into the public mind.  Stories that are not damaging to the President – like North Korea agreeing to release its American prisoners at Mr. Trump’s insistence – don’t get covered.  Stories that are damaging – like allegations of a 12-year old affair by a porn star – get covered ad nauseum.

This is all part the media/deep state game plan.  In NBC’s way of thinking, the embarrassment of having to correct a story pales in comparison to the damage done to the President of the United States by leaving it lingering out there in the public consciousness for four and a half hours.  After all, most people who heard the initial story will never know about the correction, and thus will walk around misinformed – and mis-informing their friends and family members – for the foreseeable future.

This is the Big Lie in action.  Joseph Goebbels would have felt right at home in today’s U.S. news media.

Just another day in the Big Lie lives in America.

That is all.

This is America, Where Fake News Reporting Now Wins Pulitzers

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet?  – Heads had to be exploding all over the fake mainstream news media on Monday, as President Trump hit 51% approval in the Rasmussen Survey and several other polls showed the President’s approval ticking upwards.  These results have to be maddening to all the fake reporters and editors who wake up every day intent on slanting their reporting against the current POTUS in their tireless efforts to reverse the outcome of the 2016 national election.

Even worse for the fake media and its masters at the Democrat National Committee, the new ABC/Washington Post survey shows the Democrat edge in the generic congressional preference category closing to just 4 percent, at 47/43.  This poll had that margin at 12 points in January.  Hey, maybe Robert Mueller’s assault on the right to attorney client privilege and the constitutional protection against unreasonable search and seizure isn’t such a great idea for the Democrats after all?  Just a thought.

Speaking of Mueller and his efforts to destroy every shred of attorney/client privilege in his desperation to dig up dirt on the President, the assault on former Trump attorney Michael Cohen made big news when the federal judge in the case, one Kimba Wood, forced the public revelation of Mr. Cohen’s three most recent clients, and it turned out that one of those clients happened to be Fox News and radio talk show host Sean Hannity.   The fake journalist Twitter-verse erupted with glee at the judge-ordered doxing of Hannity, who they all hate.  Hannity, for his part, said that it’s no big deal, and that he had never paid Cohen for any services, though if he had it is hard to see why that would be anyone’s business.

In any event, the actual big news in all of this to anyone who is not a fake reporter or fake editor is the name of that judge – Kimba Wood.  Those of us who, like me, are old enough to remember the early years of the Clinton Administration will remember that Judge Wood was Hillary Clinton’s hand-picked favorite to become Bill Clinton’s first nominee for Attorney General.  We will also remember that Ms. Wood’s potential nomination for the job fell apart when it was revealed that a) she had trained to be a Playboy bunny while in college, and b) she had once employed an illegal alien as a nanny and failed to properly report the wages she paid the nanny to the IRS.

To make things even more outrageous, it turns out that Judge Wood actually officiated at the 2013 wedding ceremony of the evil funder of all sorts of radical efforts to destroy American society, George Soros.

Yes, that Kimba Wood, the long-time buddy of Hillary Clinton and George Soros, is now presiding over the Michael Cohen case.  And all the fake reporters in your fake national news media look at that amazing situation and think “hey, that’s all perfectly normal.  Nothing to report there.”  Holy cow.

In other fake news, our drama queen former FBI Director can’t compete with a porn star for TV ratings.  James Comey’s Sunday night interview on ABC with a former Clinton toady drew only a little over 8 million viewers.  This compares to the 24 million who tuned in to see porn star Stormy Daniels get the softball treatment from Gloria Vanderbilt’s son on CBS.  Which proves, I guess, that in today’s America, a 6’8″ drama queen is only worth a third of the value of a porn star.  Or maybe Anderson Cooper is just that much better looking than George Stephanopoulous.

Finally, in the ultimate expression of the new legitimacy of fake news, the fake staffs at the New York Times and the Washington Post shared the Pulitzer Prize (because, hey, these are mostly Millennials and thus, everyone must go home with a trophy) in the “National Reporting” category for their coverage of “Russian meddling in the 2016 elections.”  Think about this for second:  Both the Times and the Post have been forced to rescind or massively correct dozens of fake stories about what is mostly a fantasy made up out of whole cloth by the Clinton campaign in the wake of its stinging defeat by Donald Trump.

It is fake news at its finest, a media-supported fantasy play that has a completely out-of-control Special Counsel running around the country destroying some of our most crucial constitutional protections, and the Pulitzer Committee is celebrating the two fake newspapers that have played the biggest roles in helping to perpetuate it.  If you’re an American citizen, the members of the Pulitzer Committee just gave you the finger.

Just another day in everything is fake in today’s America.

That is all.

Trump Should Fire Mueller and Rosenstein to Save the Country

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Yesterday, I wrote about the fascists coming out into full view over in London.  A few hours after I posted that piece, the fascists came out into full view in America, too, as the FBI raided the home, office and even hotel room of long-time Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen, based on a referral from – guess who? – Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his band of merry Clinton/Obama sycophants.

The fake news media of course immediately knee-jerked to the assumption that the raid was solely designed to seize any documents related to porn star Stormy Daniels, so that they would all have an excuse to show more photos and tapes of porn star Stormy Daniels.  Because that’s what the fake news media does.

Cohen, after all, is the Trump lawyer who executed the non-disclosure agreement with the porn star and wrote her a personal check for $130,000 as a part of that.  Allegedly as a part of that transaction, he reportedly took out a second loan on his house, and supposedly Mueller and the New York U.S. attorney who is also involved are looking at possible bank fraud related to that loan, i.e., did Cohen misrepresent the reasons for taking the loan to the bank that loaned him the money.

However, as the afternoon and evening progressed, it eventually became clear through the fake news fog that the raids were more about Cohen’s interactions early in the 2016 campaign with an anti-Russian Ukrainian businessman named Victor Pinchuk.  Pinchuk apparently contributed $150,000 to the Trump Foundation after Trump had delivered a 20-minute speech condemning Russia’s actions towards Ukraine in 2015, and Mueller is investigating whether or not Cohen violated any campaign laws in soliciting that contribution.

Ironically, of course, the Special Counsel whose ostensible job was to investigate whether the Trump campaign had coordinated with Russia to influence the election is now focused on the campaign’s supposed interactions with a Ukranian who hates Russia.  Even more ironically, Mr. Pinchuk’s foundation gave more than $8 million to the Clinton Crime Family Fake Foundation while the Pantsuit Princess was Secretary of State, a situation that Mr. Mueller is spending exactly zero time looking into.

So once again we see Mr. Mueller ranging wildly outside the supposed reason for his appointment, and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who made the appointment, exercising absolutely no oversight whatsoever to rein his attack dog in.  Worse, Rosenstein signed off on the conduct of yesterday’s raids in advance.

Making matters even more repugnant, many of the seized documents would normally fall under the attorney/client privilege, but the FBI/DOJ thugs have a way around even that now-dead stricture of law.  Supposedly, there will be a “separate team” of FBI agents who will review all the documents for potential privilege, and who will only turn over the non-privileged documents to the prosecutors.  If any of you really believe that such a process protecting the client (the sitting President of the United States) is actually going to take place, I have some wonderful lake front property in the Mojave Desert I’d like talk with you about.

The FBI has clearly demonstrated over the last half-decade that it simply cannot be trusted, and that it is willing to engage in any abuse of law or citizens’ rights in order to protect itself.  The timing of this raid could not be more blatant in that regard, coming as it does just one day after Attorney General Jeff Sessions appointed Chicago U.S. Attorney John Lausch to oversee the FBI’s document production to various congressional committees that the agency has been stonewalling.

For Mueller, yesterday was all about regaining control of the narrative, which has gotten away from him as his “Russia Collusion” fantasy play has fallen apart.  What better way to do that than to send the FBI in to very publicly abuse a high profile witness who has been completely cooperating with his investigation for months?

Early this morning, President Trump issued the following pair of tweets:

After yesterday’s sad events, it’s pretty hard to argue with either sentiment.

With nothing real to show for his “Russia Collusion” fantasy after almost a year, and facing the real possibility of going down in history as a failure, some are theorizing that Mueller actually wants the President to fire him in order to produce a constitutional crisis that might convince the establishment Republicans in congress to impeach Mr. Trump.

If that’s Mueller’s game plan, perhaps the time has come for President Trump to accommodate him and let the chips fall where they may.   Rosenstein needs to go as well, and if Sessions and Inspector General Michael Horowitz don’t produce the long-long-long- delayed IG report in the coming days, the President might as well go full-on Saturday Night Massacre and can them all.

Because the fact is that the DOJ and FBI are completely out of control at this point, and remain the active enemies of the rights of all Americans that they became during the Obama years, after 15 months of new governance.  That is a situation that cannot be allowed to continue.

 

Just another day in the Justice Department is a danger to all of us America.

That is all.
