Saturday News Roundup: The Media has Blood on its Hands, and America has had Enough

Domestic terrorists? What domestic terrorists? – We led Friday’s News Roundup with the FBI’s arrest of one Jason Charter, a BLM/Antifa organizer who led the effort that tried and failed to take down the Andrew Jackson statue in Washington, DC’s Lafayette Square last month. That seemed like an important story with all of the media-fed, Democrat-organized social unrest taking place in the country, right?

It turns out that, other than Fox News and OAN, not a single other TV “news” outlet spent a second of air time covering that story. That’s right: ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, and CNN are all so down with the terrorist cause in our country that they refuse to report on the arrests of these terrorists when they take place.

In the minds of the corrupt editors and reporters at those outlets, it is far more important to spend their time spreading more panic porn about the Wuhan virus than it is to inform the public that many of the people who burned and looted large swaths of a dozen major American cities during June are being brought to justice.

Because if a story is good for Trump, it’s bad, bad, bad for the corrupt news media.

Speaking of stories that are good for Trump and really bad for the media… – A new study from the International Journal of Infectious Diseases finds that Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), which the corrupt news media spent months demonizing and lying about after Trump endorsed its use, does indeed save the lives of people who have contracted COVID-19.

From a report at the Wall Street Journal:

Coronavirus patients treated with the drug hydroxychloroquine within the first two days of admission were more likely to survive than patients who received other treatment, according to the study, which was published online by the International Journal of Infectious Diseases.

The study, which analyzed medical records of 2,541 Covid-19 patients, suggests that hydroxychloroquine can be effective if given during the early stages of contracting the virus and at the right dose, the researchers said. Other studies, however, haven’t found a benefit, and federal health officials withdrew the drug’s authorization for emergency use.

Patients whose records were analyzed were given 400 mg of hydroxychloroquine twice on the first day, followed by 200 mg twice a day the following four days.

“We gave it early,” said Marcus Zervos, head of the infectious-diseases division for Henry Ford Health System in Detroit, who co-authored the study. “If it’s given late in therapy, it’s going to have relatively more limited benefits.”

[End]

In other words, this study verified exactly the studies out of France and South Korea, as well as anecdotal information from doctors around the U.S. who have had tremendous results with treating patients with HCQ early in the course of the virus. We knew all of this three full months ago, but the focused campaign by corrupt media outlets like CNN, NBC and the New York Time to demonize this drug intimated many doctors to avoid its use, no doubt resulting in many deaths that would have otherwise been avoided.

The simple fact of the matter is that the American news media has blood on its hands over this safe, effective and cheap drug. But then, our corrupt media has so much blood on its hands these days that this episode is just par for the course.

If we can’t find some way to effectively hold these corrupt editors and reporters accountable for their actions, our country will eventually die. They are a gigantic cancer that is rapidly metastasizing across our culture.

How to know President Trump gave a great and effective speech… – President Trump delivered a soaring and inspiring patriotic speech at Mount Rushmore last night. Here is how the news-fakers at the New York Times characterized it:

Let’s remember that the New York Times has rolled out the terms “dark” and “divisive” at Trump’s inauguration speech and every one of his State of the Union messages. After each and every one of those speeches, the President’s public approval ratings went up.

Dear NYTimes editorial board: Your elementary school word template is failing.

Speaking of failing… – A group of protesters managed to delay the timing of the Mt. Rushmore ceremony for awhile as they blocked the road up to the monument ahead of the President’s arrival.

From a story at Fox News:

About 15 protesters were arrested Friday after they blocked an access road to Mount Rushmore hours before President Trump was scheduled to give remarks to kick off Independence Day weekend.

According to the Associated Press, the protest group was mostly made up of Native Americans protesting that South Dakota’s Black Hills were taken from the Lakota people against treaty agreements.

[End]

Note: Anyone who watched the protest action live knows that the AP characterization of the makeup of the protest group is completely false. The group in fact was made up mainly of the same kind of pasty-white entitled Millennials who we see dominating every Antifa and BLM-organized riot. But hey, lying outright to the American public is what the AP and the rest of our corrupt news media does.

More from the story:

One group parked three vans across the road and removed the tires from two of the vehicles to make it more difficult to remove them. Several demonstrators climbed on top of the vans chanting “Land back!”

The sheriff’s office said attendees had been told to arrive early and should have been past the roadblock by the time the standoff began. However, the Rapid City Journal reported that some motorists who had tickets for Friday evening’s fireworks show were unable to get through the protests and were standing by their cars watching the standoff.

The Journal also reported that law enforcement in riot gear as well as members of the National Guard had declared an unlawful assembly.

Police later used pepper spray on several protesters to break up the standoff and tow trucks were brought in to remove the vans blocking the road. Arrests were made after protesters ignored a police-imposed deadline to leave.

[End]

About that police-imposed deadline: The live video feed showed that the police present on the scene sat by and did nothing as the Antifa/BLM group showed up and blocked the road. It also showed that it took almost two full hours before the police finally brought in tow trucks and started using pepper spray to clear the damn road, actions that could easily have been achieved far more quickly.

This is unacceptable.

People in this country have an absolute right to protest in public, and that right must be protected. But people do not have any right at all to block streets, disrupt, vandalize and loot businesses or tear down statues. Those acts will only end when police are freed up to take quick and decisive action to end them.

Enough. America has had enough.

Have a Happy Independence Day anyway!

The Corruption of the U.S. News Media Continues to Intensify

The Mid-Day Campaign Update

Every time you think the American news media could not possibly become more depraved and corrupt, they go and fool you again. – Let’s go around the horn – as all the baseball players used to day back when America still had baseball – and take a little review of some of the highlights of despicable, corrupt media behavior over the past couple of days…

Example #1: It’s the question that doesn’t get asked that reveals the corruption.

Guests on the various Sunday morning fake news shows included Georgia Gubernatorial loooooooser Stacey Abrams, Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar and fascist Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer. These are three of the harem of Democrat women being mentioned as potential running mates for Quid Pro China Spindly Finger Joe Biden.

Guess which current hot topic none of these potential veep candidates were asked by their respective Democrat agents posing as journalists? That’s right: The subject of Tara Reade’s increasingly credible sexual assault allegation targeting Crazy Uncle Joe and his spindly finger.

Proving yet again that the sin of omission is one of a corrupt journalist’s favorite tricks of the trade.

Example #2: San Fran Nan gets the same “question that isn’t asked” favor from utterly corrupt hypocrite Jake Tapper.

Watch as Nancy Pelosi gets the kid glove treatment from Tapper as she recites her false talking points:

Now, a real, actual journalist might have thought to ask the despicable Speaker a few follow-up questions:

– Ummm…didn’t you call President Trump a racist for implementing his travel ban back on January 31?

– Do you not realize that the “tens of thousands” of people you are talking about are American citizens?

– To be clear: Are you really stating that those thousands of American citizens should have been left imprisoned in China?

– To be clear: On February 24, 24 days after the President issued his travel ban, you were filmed walking around San Francisco’s Chinatown telling people that it was completely safe and there was nothing to worry about. Are you admitting you were wrong to do that?

But of course, nothing but crickets from the Democrat operative who gets paid by CNN to protect depraved Democrats like Pelosi.

Example #3: These people are soulless ghouls.

Watch as MSNBC’s hack Nicolle Wallace celebrates the Wuhan Virus because it hurts President Trump’s polling numbers:

Quote: “He’s down at 38%. Pence is lower than him. I mean, he needs those people whether he likes what they say or not. And I wonder what you think about whether or not there’s some silver lining there, that some of the things that we’ve been talking about for three years may be finally catching up with him.”

You could never make these people up. Not in a million gazillion years.

Example #4: These people are soulless ghouls, part II.

And speaking of hacks, here is NBC’s Chuck Todd celebrating the Wuhan Virus for giving us cleaner air and thus, “better views.”

I’ve pointed out several times now that one of the outcomes of our dealing with the Wuhan Virus as we have done has been to deliver the America envisioned by radical environmental alarmists in their “Green New Deal”: Decimated airlines, limited travel in cars, an utterly destroyed tourism industry, negative economic growth, millions of people out of work, cowering in their homes hoping for a government handout.

But hey, our carbon footprints are lower and we have better views, so isn’t life wonderful?

This is your corrupt national news media in action, folks. Never, ever forget who and what they really are. These people hate you, and would rather you were dead.

That is all.

ChiCom Influence Shows it is Time to Bust the Corrupt News Media Trusts

The Mid-Day Campaign Update

The left-wing activists who run NPR actually performed a rare public service on Tuesday, publishing an expose’ that reveals how Bloomberg News covers for the communist Chinese government in order to maintain its license to operate within that nation. The story demonstrates how Bloomberg’s longing to remain entangled with the inherently corrupt and dishonest ChiComs rendered its own operation equally as corrupt and dishonest.

The NPR piece relates that, in 2013, after publishing part 1 of a story detailing the enormous wealth being accumulated by the ChiCom Party elite – typical of what happens in all communist nations – Bloomberg’s China operation drafted part 2 of that story, “focusing on Chinese leaders’ ties to the country’s richest man, Wang Jianlin. Among those in the reporters’ sights: the family of new Chinese President Xi Jinping.” NPR relates that emails show that Bloomberg’s New York honchos expressed excitement upon an initial reading of the piece, but then suddenly quit communicating on the subject, and the story never ran.

The Bloomberg China office’s continuing inquiries about the matter eventually got them a conference call with the company’s famously-bombastic original editor-in-chief, Matthew Winkler, and NPR somehow obtained a recording made of that call. Boy, is it revealing.

From the NPR Article:

“It is for sure going to, you know, invite the Communist Party to, you know, completely shut us down and kick us out of the country,” Winkler said. “So, I just don’t see that as a story that is justified.”

He expressed great apprehension because of the potential consequences of publishing another investigation. In this case, it was one that would itemize the links between top Chinese Communist Party leaders and the country’s wealthiest man.

Winkler returned to those fears repeatedly. “The inference is going to be interpreted by the government there as we are judging them,” Winkler said. “And they will probably kick us out of the country. They’ll probably shut us down, is my guess.”

Winkler suggested reporters could find a uniquely “Bloomberg” way to cover the wealth of Chinese ruling elites. But he added a caution about covering the regime.

“It has to be done with a strategic framework and a tactical method that is … smart enough to allow us to continue and not run afoul of the Nazis who are in front of us and behind us everywhere,” Winkler said, according to the audio reviewed by NPR and verified by others. “And that’s who they are. And we should have no illusions about it.”

At the time, two Bloomberg editors told NPR the story didn’t run because it needed additional reporting. Winkler publicly said much the same. But these audio recordings reveal otherwise. They also show how much newsroom leaders were worried about losing lucrative business in China.

[End]

So, basically what we see here is a “news” organization quashing the real news in order to avoid offending corrupt national leaders the editor-in-chief refers to as “Nazis.” Yes, by all means, let’s not offend the Nazis. Let’s be sure to play nice with them and continue to give them access to our “news” platform so that our company and multi-billionaire owner who has enormous business interests in China can keep them intact.

Now, if you think Bloomberg is the only U.S. “news” media operation with enormous business ties to the ChiCom government, go Google “AT&T China.” When you do that, the second link that comes up provides you with a link to AT&T’s Global Business landing page for its operations in China. Here is an excerpt from the text on that landing page:

AT&T has been in China for more than 30 years. AT&T China has strong technical expertise with branch offices in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Tianjin and Shenzhen.

AT&T in China

Through collaborations with local service providers, AT&T is able to make available an advanced Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) IP-based network with MPLS Service Nodes in mainland China, covering more than 300 cities around the country.

With such teaming with local service providers, clients across China can benefit from an industry-leading portfolio that includes Mobility, Network, Network Security, Cloud, Hosting, Voice, Unified Communications and Application services. These are implemented locally by experienced personnel and supported by a local AT&T team.

AT&T should be the first port of call for any business or organization looking to mobilize its people, assets or information across China and beyond.

[End]

Oh. You don’t say.

Why is AT&T relevant to this conversation? Why, because AT&T is the corporate owner of … wait for it … oh, you have to wait for this one … you guessed it: CNN!

Now you know why you see CNN talking heads like Jim Acosta, Jake Tapper and Fredo Cuomo pushing ChiCom talking points verbatim out to their viewers every day.

Now, go Google “Comcast China,” and note that the second link that comes up is to a 2014 Forbes story titled, “Comcast To Build A $3.3 Billion Theme Park In Beijing.” $3.3 billion, huh? That’s a lot of money, even to Mike Bloomberg.

The next link that comes up is to Xfinity’s landing page for its multiple China-based business offerings. Guess which corporation owns Xfinity now? If you said ‘Comcast,’ you are catching on here. And now you know why the talking heads on NBC and MSNBC – also wholly-owned subsidiaries of Comcast – keep reciting ChiCom talking points to you 24 hours a day.

You want to know why CBS shills for China? Go Google “Viacom China.” Want to know why ABC does the same? Google “Disney China,” and you will find stories about billions upon billions of that company’s investments in China, all dependent on maintaining the good graces of the ChiCom government that is led by the very same Xi Jinping, who was to have been one of the prime subjects of that Part 2 Bloomberg story that never ran back in 2013.

Oh.

And now, as the late, great Paul Harvey used to say, you know the rrrrrrrrrrrest of the story.

The mainstream U.S. news media consists of garbage operations run by garbage human beings who are willing to literally sell their souls and professional ethics in order to protect the business interests of their corporate overlords. They truly are the Enemies of the People.

The only way to remedy this situation is for the Trump Department of Justice to use the nation’s anti-trust laws to outlaw the ownership of news media operations by corporations or individuals with foreign business interests. This current situation simply cannot be allowed to continue.

That is all.

Tonight’s Debate Drinking Game: Who Has and Has Not Been Bought off by Mini-Mike?

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

Quick: What’s the first thing you will be looking for at tonight’s Democrat debate? – Be honest: Won’t you be trying to see whether or not Mini-Mike Bloomberg will be standing on a box?

Thank you, President Trump, who hilariously issued this pair of tweets on Tuesday after it was announced that Bloomberg had miraculously “qualified” for the debate, thanks to a very convenient fake poll dummied up by NBC/Wall Street Journal:

“No standing on boxes!” I’m still laughing.

But seriously, if you want to understand how short Mini-Mike really is, all you have to do is look at this photo, if you can stand it:

Image may contain: 2 people, including Bob Hamilton, people smiling, suit and closeup

There he is in all his glory, standing with the Fainting Felon, who was listed as being 5’5″ when she was young – before gravity began taking its toll, as it does on everyone. These days, she is almost certainly no taller than 5’4″.

If you’re thinking, hey, she’s wearing heels, think again. The Coughing Crook can barely stand upright in flats – she probably hasn’t put on a pair of heels since she was First Lady. Of Arkansas.

Meanwhile, it has long been rumored that Mini-Mike wears loafers with lifts.

So, yeah, he will most likely be standing on a box tonight, or employing some other trick of stagecraft to make him look at least as tall as Amy Klobuchar. Look carefully. In fact, if you focus only on that and completely ignore all the utter crap that Mini-Mike and the other candidates will be spewing tonight, you might just survive the ordeal.

Image may contain: 1 person, standing, shorts and outdoor, possible text that says 'YOU MUST BE THIS TALL το RUN FOR PRESIDENT'

The real question for Bloomberg here is why he wants to be in this debate at all. While he did manage to “qualify”, it’s really hard to see any real advantage for him to be a part of this particular event.

First of all, he is seriously the most boring individual on the planet. It’s not as if he is going to say a bunch of stuff tonight that will set Democrat voters hair on fire with desire to go out and write-in his name at Saturday’s Nevada caucuses.

Second, the moderators of this event – even those who are already in Bloomberg’s deep pockets – will be absolutely obligated to ask him pointed questions about all the videos that have surfaced in the past 10 days of him making demeaning comments about a vast variety segments of American society, most of whom are traditional Democrat voter groups. The parade of these videos continued on Tuesday, with Bloomberg now adding the LGBTQ community to the list of offended Democrat constituencies:

Yikes. How’s Mini-Mike gonna answer a question about that one in a way that mollifies the rabid Democrat voter base?

Third, unless he has already bought all of his opponents off – which, admittedly, is entirely possible – he will become the target of their aggressions. All of this, and he isn’t even on the ballot in Nevada or the next contest in South Carolina.

Back to President Trump’s tweets: He hits the tiny nail on the head when he points out that Mini-Mike is “spreading money all over the place, only to have recipients of his cash payments, many former opponents, happily joining or supporting his campaign. Isn’t that called a payoff?”

Well, yes. Yes, it is a payoff, and yes, that’s exactly what Bloomberg is doing. It’s exactly what he has done throughout his entire professional life.

For example, tonight’s debate will be held on NBC. The moderators, according to The Intelligencer, will be:

NBC anchor Lestor Holt, Meet the Press host Chuck Todd, NBC News White House correspondent Hallie Jackson, Noticias Telemundo correspondent Vanessa Hauc, and the Nevada Independent editor Jon Ralston.

So, five moderators, and you can be sure that at least 2 of them have been paid off in some way, shape or form by Mini-Mike. Those who, like Holt and Todd, are based in New York City, have without doubt benefited from Bloomberg’s largesse, if only by being on the regular guest list for his various parties, galas and other major events, where they get to hobnob with Mini-Mike and all the beautiful people of New York society.

While Bloomberg’s generosity is famous, he is also famous for his vindictiveness. Do you think either man will want to give all that up by asking an overly-aggressive question of their benefactor, or by following up to demand that he actually answer the question directly when he tries to obfuscate? Please.

This is precisely why the intertwining over the last half-century of the big media establishment with the big political establishment has been so utterly destructive of our society. It is precisely why we no longer have anything resembling an independent press in our country, why the media is so utterly corrupt and fake.

So, Bloomberg and all he represents will be on stage tonight, and you will be able to easily identify which moderators and candidate have and have not already been bought off. Because that’s what Mini-Mike does.

That’s why, at the end of the day, tonight’s debate is likely to look an awful lot like this:

You seriously could never make these people up, folks. Not in a million years.

That is all.

Libel Suits Targeting Corrupt News Outlets Are Piling Up

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

One of the most pressing issues facing America today is finding some way to hold corrupt and out of control media outlets accountable for their intentional reporting of blatantly false information as part of their tireless efforts to support the agenda of the Democrat Party. Accomplishing this is very difficult given the state of U.S. law and the protections afforded the press under the first amendment.

As things stand today, seeking to punish these corrupt organizations via the libel laws is essentially the only route available to those they have abused, and it is a very tough road indeed. Regardless, some hardy souls and creative lawyers are making the effort.

On Friday evening, GOP congressman Devin Nunes announced he would soon be filing libel suits against both CNN and The Daily Beast, two of the most corrupt purveyors of fake news on the planet. The Daily Beast filed a report earlier this week alleging that Ukrainian operative Lev Parnas, who has been indicted in the U.S. on campaign finance technicalities,  claims that he helped Nunes set up meetings in which he obtained information about Ukraine during a European trip last November.

Nunes says the stories are blatantly and demonstrably false:

“These demonstrably false and scandalous stories published by the Daily Beast and CNN are the perfect example of defamation and reckless disregard for the truth,” Nunes told Breitbart News late Friday night. “Some political operative offered these fake stories to at least five different media outlets before finding someone irresponsible enough to publish them. I look forward to prosecuting these cases, including the media outlets, as well as the sources of their fake stories, to the fullest extent of the law. I intend to hold the Daily Beast and CNN accountable for their actions. They will find themselves in court soon after Thanksgiving.”

Because he has spent the past three years as a leader in the effort to expose the deep state coup cabal within the DOJ and FBI and also led the defense of President Trump during the past two weeks’ impeachment circus, Nunes has been the target of all manner of false reporting by these and other corrupt media organizations. It would be a great blessing for the nation if he could prove his case and win monstrous judgments against both CNN and The Daily Beast.

On Thursday, Covington Catholic High School student Nicolas Sandmann won a crucial judgment in his $275 million libel case against NBC Universal. The judge in that case, U.S. District Judge William Bertelsman, ruled that if NBC’s allegations that Sandmann “blocked” well-known leftist activist Nathan Phillips or “did not allow him to retreat” during their confrontation on the National Mall last year are false, then they are libelous.

As reported by Fox Business on Friday:

Video widely shared online showed Sandmann and Phillips standing close to each other, with Sandmann staring and at times smiling at Phillips as the man continued to beat on a drum. Both Phillips and Sandmann have said they were trying to defuse tensions rising among three groups on a day when Washington hosted both the anti-abortion March for Life, attended by Sandmann and his Covington Catholic High School classmates, and the Indigenous Peoples March.

You will remember that every corrupt fake news organization in America participated in a feeding frenzy following that confrontation in an effort to portray Sandmann and his classmates as a pack of rabid, privileged white kids who bullied a poor “native American” who was just minding his own business when they supposedly descended upon him. We quickly learned – and the video of the incident proved beyond all doubt – that it was in fact the kids who were minding their own business waiting for a bus to arrive to pick them up when Phillips, a notorious leftist agitator with a long history of aggressive behavior, descended on them.

Notably, Judge Bertelsman is also the presiding judge in Sandmann’s similar cases against CNN and the Washington Post, and has also ruled in Sandmann’s favor on these issues in those cases. With any luck, Sandmann will ultmately prevail in all three cases.

Who knows, given that CNN is already a money-losing proposition, maybe a couple of judgments totaling half a billion dollars or so would give its owners at AT&T cause to consider whether their ongoing support for CNN’s Goebbels-like fake news operation is worth bearing the cost and reputational damage.

We can always hope. For America to survive in its current form, we must find some means of enforcing accountability in our intentionally-fake news media establishment. If the libel laws can’t be made to work, some other, probably uglier, alternatives will have to be found.

That is all.

Sunday was NBC’s Day to Shill for the Deep State Coup Cabal

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

The fake news outlets are taking turns parroting the Coup Cabal’s talking points. – Saturday was the New York Times day, and Sunday, it was NBC’s turn at the fake news bar as the Coup Cabal continues to try to build an exculpatory narrative in advance of the release of the Horowitz report. We’ve seen this repeatedly over the past few years, as America’s fake news media continues to toady for its Democrat masters.

NBC News started its shilling right at the top, with a hilariously-slanted headline: “AG Barr expands mysterious review into origin of Russia investigation.”  Oooooohhhh, it’s all “mysterious” and stuff. The sub-head is even better: “If U.S. Attorney John Durham is conducting a criminal investigation, it’s not clear what allegations of wrongdoing are being examined.”

Oh, hey, guess who no doubt fed NBC that headline and sub-head: Could it be Obama CIA Director John Brennan? It seems likely, given this passage hidden way down in the bowels of the piece:

If Durham is conducting a criminal investigation, it’s not clear what allegations of wrongdoing are being examined. The Justice Department has not detailed any, and a spokeswoman declined to comment for this story.

“I don’t know what the legal basis for this is,” Brennan said, calling the probe “bizarre.”

So, Saturday’s theme parroted by the New York Times was that, hey, the Coup Cabal didn’t do anything wrong in the sham Clinton email “investigation,” and Sunday’s theme is “the Barr/Durham investigation is all mysterious and bizarre and stuff, or something.”

The NBC piece is an obvious, blatant effort to paint the Barr/Durham investigation to be somehow illegitimate, which explains the use of Brennan-fed code words like “bizarre,” “mysterious,” and “unusual” throughout. Of course, there is nothing mysterious or unusual about the investigation at all, and Barr spent a ton of time in May explaining in great detail why he was pursuing the investigation and what he and Durham would be looking at.

NBC even details much of that in its own piece:

Michael Horowitz, the Justice Department inspector general, has conducted an investigation into the FBI’s actions in launching the Russia probe.

But Barr has said he believes an IG inquiry is not sufficient to answer the questions he has about how the investigation began. In doing so, he made comments suggesting Durham had authority only a criminal investigation could provide.

In a May 31 interview with CBS News, Barr said Horowitz “doesn’t have the power to compel testimony, he doesn’t have the power really to investigate beyond the current cast of characters at the Department of Justice. His ability to get information from former officials or from other agencies outside the department is very limited.”

Barr also said in the interview that the purpose of the Durham review is to make sure there was not inappropriate surveillance of the Trump campaign.

“I had a lot of questions about what was going on,” he said. “Some of the facts that I’ve learned don’t hang together with the official explanations of what happened.”

Ok, so, what is “mysterious,” “bizarre,” or “unusual” about any of that? Barr is concerned about the origins of myriad FBI/CIA/DOJ-sanctioned efforts to spy on the Trump Campaign/Trump Transition/Trump Administration were improperly originated and conducted, and that no one has made any real effort to get to the bottom of why that all happened and who authorized the spying in the first place. So, he has detailed Durham to lead a probe to get to the bottom of it all.

IG Horowitz has no power to subpoena witnesses outside of the DOJ/FBI employee base, and no power to convene grand juries to seek indictments should crimes be uncovered. Durham, as a U.S. Attorney, does possess those powers.

This is not complicated, except for fake journalists who are set on pretending to be intentionally obtuse in efforts to deceive the American public. And that’s how we end up with these fake media outlets taking turns goose-stepping to marching music being played by the Coup Cabal.

Can’t wait to see what Monday’s theme becomes, and which fake news media outlet gets to parrot it for Brennan/Clapper/Comey and company. My money’s on ABC or The Washington Post.

Stay tuned.

That is all.

Fox News Leads the Parade of Garbage Impeachment Polls

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

These impeachment polls are very mysterious and confusing. Until you look at the details, that is.  –  The increasingly-trending-left Fox News came out with a “bombshell” new poll on impeachment Wednesday which Bret Baier solemnly told us shows that 51% of those polled favor both impeachment and removal from office. Baier further said that is an increase of 9% over an earlier poll taken before any of this nonsense about Ukraine broke. Which basically means that every leftist nitwit in the country has always wanted him impeached and removed, which should surprise no one.

This seems pretty strange since the President’s public approval rating in this poll and basically every other poll is essentially the same as it was in August. So, I decided to go take a look into the bowels of the results and guess what I discovered? Fully 48% of this poll’s sample identify as Democrats. This despite the fact that recent polling by Gallup and other organizations show that less than 30% of the U.S. population now self-identifies that way. 40% were Republicans, despite recent polling by Gallup and others showing that less than 30 of the actual population self-identifies that way. That leaves just 12% of this sample taken from the vast middle of the country that identifies with neither party.

This poll is trash. Garbage. A fake poll taken simply to create a fake news story for Bret Baier to parrot. Fox News is almost all the way achieving its goal of becoming CNN.

Ok, so, let’s go on to the poll from The Wall Street Journal/NBC released on Tuesday. This poll claims to find that 43% of the public favor “supporting [Trump’s] removal based on what they know today,” according to the linked NBC article. Yet, when you go take a look at the details of the findings, here is what you actually discover: When asked whether there is “enough evidence to impeach Donald Trump and remove him from office now,” just 24% in the poll’s sample say “yes.”

TWENTY-FOUR PERCENT.

Another 31% are in favor of holding “an impeachment inquiry to determine of there is enough evidence” to remove the President from office, because Americans just love their investigations. Fine.

But look at how absurdly NBC has misrepresented this poll’s actual findings to the public, simply to create a “news” story that might attract viewers and clicks to its website. It’s a disgrace.

One big difference in this poll as compared to the Fox poll is that it has a more reasonable partisan breakdown of 30% Democrat and 25% Republican, with the rest of the sample basically independents.

These are just two of the most recent of dozens of polls taken on the impeachment and removal questions, and when you look closely at the entire group of them, what you find is that this Democrat/Media coordinated anti-Trump frenzy over the innocuous Ukraine phone call has moved public opinion towards removal from office by maybe 2 or 3 percentage points.

Meanwhile, the President’s public approval rating as measured by the RealClearPolitics average of polls sits at 43.6% approval, slightly above his average for all of 2019.

This is not remotely what the Democrats and their media toadies were hoping to achieve here. Not at all.

They’re gonna need a bigger hoax.

Lawrence O’Donnell is What Happens When all Standards of Journalism are Gone

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

Last week, after President Donald Trump had said that, because his three predecessors in the job failed to deal with China’s unfair trade practices, and therefore he was the “chosen one” to do so, the Democrat-toadying news media went berserk. “Trump thinks he’s the Chosen one!” they wailed, “Trump compares himself to a messiah!” the headlines roared. On and on and on it went, even though the President was very clearly using the term “chosen one” in a highly ironic and humorous manner.

But of course, when it comes to covering the President, our fake news media toadies have no sense of humor or irony. President Trump is, to these Democrat-activists-with-press-passes, the devil incarnate after all, and thus every word must be taken literally.

Then there’s Joe Biden, the Unfrozen Caveman Senator who seldom knows what town or state he happens to be in, and can’t remember the name of that guy he served with as Vice President. Biden this week related a story of military heroism he claimed to have witnessed while serving as Veep, a story in which he supposedly placed himself in harm’s way to visit a wounded warrior in a military hospital in Iraq – or was it Afghanistan? Hey, it’s just details.

The story ends with Biden heroically traveling to that hospital despite being warned of the dangers involved, and the heroic soldier refusing the medal he was offered because the fellow heroic soldier he had attempted to save had ended up dying. It’s a great story in which the only accurate part was the part about the heroic soldier.

Every other aspect of the story Biden related was completely false, as even the Washington Post managed to bring itself to admit. Simply not true, as in did not happen.

Yet our Democrat-toadying fake news media has gone to heroic lengths itself to excuse Biden’s latest despicable fabrication as just another gaffe. Why, that’s just ol’ Joe Biden, he does this stuff all the time. It’s part of who he is, and it shouldn’t be held against him.

Ok, fine. Having a sense of humor and irony is also part of who President Donald Trump is. Why, you might ask, is that invariably held against him by our fake national press corps?

The answer is simple: our fake national press corps has mounted a focused campaign of dehumanization against Donald Trump the candidate and Donald Trump the President for four solid years now. In this campaign, Trump is a monster, a non-human who the fake journalists must not ever make the mistake of characterizing in human terms.

This dehumanization campaign is also why we saw NBC and its despicable host Lawrence O’Donnell clearly intentionally slander President Trump and Trump Enterprises by claiming some loans taken out by the company had been co-signed by Russian oligarchs close to Vladimir Putin. After the Trump lawyers sent a letter promising a major lawsuit were the false report not retracted within 24 hours, O’Donnell was forced to issue a grudging semi-apology in which he hilariously claimed to have not adhered to NBC’s “rigorous” standards.  Please.

The strategy here was clear: Slander the non-human President with an outrageous, unsourced lie, and then wait a day to issue a half-hearted apology knowing that 5 times as many Americans would hear and believe the initial claim than would ever even hear about its semi-retraction. This is what happens when all former journalistic ‘standards’ have completely disappeared.

Our nation’s media establishment as it exists today is now nothing more than a political party. Wait, that’s not quite accurate: It is in fact nothing more than the propaganda arm of the national Democrat Party. The corporate media have long been heavily biased in the Democrats’ favor, but always in the past, there were still enough editors and anchors within those organizations who possessed the journalistic integrity to prevent their operations from going completely off the rails into outright slanderous/libelous behavior.

Those people are all gone now. Even at Fox News, Shep Smith is allowed to engage in the most outrageously false monologues imaginable during what is supposed to be a straight news hour each day.

Today’s news media is a daily race against the competition to see who can do the best, most outrageous job of dehumanizing and damaging a duly-elected POTUS while covering for all the bad actors who are destroying our society’s institutions. These are not news operations – they are slander factories with no standards, no editorial control, no integrity.

They are abominations to a free society, enemies of the people, plain and simple.

That is all.

All that Post-Election Panic in 2016 Begins to Make Sense

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

[Editor’s Note: The Campaign Update will be silent from July 11 through July 23 because Dave needs some down time.]

Is it all starting to make sense to you now? – Are you starting to understand why the election of Donald J. Trump – a non-swamp creature with no ties to the Deep State – put the Democrats and establishment Republicans into such a state of outright panic?

In the wake of the arrest and charging of pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, does the focused campaign over the last three years by our fake news media and entertainment industry to normalize pedophilia in the public consciousness begin to make sense? As you discover all of Epstein’s relationships to not just the Clintons, but also to all manner of famous Democrats and media and entertainment figures, do you now understand why Hillary, after she was asked a few “tough” questions by disgraced sex abuser Matt Lauer during the 2016 campaign, scolded him that “we will all hang” if Trump were to win the election?  Which, incidentally, he did?

Are you now starting to understand why Slick Willie issued that classic Clintonian butt-covering statement to the press last night? Because everyone needs to understand that an ex-President would not have issued such a statement unless he knows some truly serious, damaging information is now in the hands of investigators.

Think about it: He already has 90% of the news media feverishly scrambling to cover for him. WikiPedia has already altered its page on Jeffrey Epstein to eliminate all mention of the Clintons. So there was no reason to issue that statement solely based on the information that is already public. The Clintons know that Slick’s name is all over the flight logs of the Lolita Express, and they know what Bill – and Hillary – did with Epstein over the years.

Now, they also know all of that information is in the hands of federal prosecutors, and they no longer have Eric Holder or Loretta Lynch or Robert Mueller or James Comey in power to cover for them. That’s why you saw Slick issue that statement last night. It’s the setting of a favorable narrative that is now being parroted all across our fake news media landscape, providing cover in preparation for the storm they know is coming.

This is no different than when, in 1998, Slick, then POTUS, wagged his crooked index finger at the cameras and said “I did not have sex with that woman, Miss Lewinsky.” It’s the setting of a damage control narrative. It’s what the Clintons do, and what they have always done.

And here’s the thing: It’s always worked for them before, but before, they’ve always had fellow swamp creatures in positions of high power to help cover for them.

How absurd is the claim of “I know nothing! Nothing!” by Sgt. Schulz, er, ex-President Clinton?  So ridiculous that reporter Conchita Sarnoff, who has spent the last decade investigating the case, outright called him a liar on national television Monday night. Watch:

Ouch.

The Campaign Update, as noted above, will be silent for the next couple of weeks as I go to recharge my batteries and get a little R&R. Some readers are scolding me that now is a bad time to be doing that because so much is going on. But think about the last few years and tell me when we had two weeks during which there was not a bunch of really important stuff going on.

The fact is, there are no longer any good times to do this, which is why I’m doing it now. See you in a couple of weeks!

That is all.
