The Congressional Protection Racket Forms Up Around Franken and Conyers

Today’s Campaign Update

  • Senator Al Franken said on Sunday that he is “embarrassed and ashamed” over his apparent obsession with grabbing womens’ butts over the years, but not so embarrassed or ashamed that he plans to give up his job in the U.S. Senate, where he will report for booty, er, duty today.  Let’s hope he and Roy Moore get to serve on the same committees should Moore begin a senate term in January – the hearings will make for tremendous political theater.
  • She meant “zero tolerance for thee, not for me.” – Meanwhile, if you’re wondering why Alabama’s Republican voters might still elect Judge Moore to the senate in spite of the allegations arrayed against him, look no further than Sunday morning’s interview by San Fran Nan Pelosi on NBC’s Meet the Press.  Pelosi has spent the last few weeks shrieking that Moore should leave the race because his accusers must – MUST, I say – be believed,  and that congress should have “zero tolerance” for sex abusers.  But, when asked if that “zero tolerance” should apply to Democrat Cong. John Conyers, who has also been accused by several women of disgusting episodes of sexual harassment, she told NBC’s fake host Chuck Todd that Conyers deserves “due process. Just because someone is accused…was it one accusation, is it two?…John Conyers is an icon in our country. He has done a great deal to protect women.”  *sigh*
  • When Republican and independent voters in Alabama see such a rank double-standard being practiced not only by the fake news media, but also by the literal national face of the Democrat Party, it naturally reduces their willingness to believe the allegations facing Judge Moore.  After all, if, as Pelosi clearly implies, the accusers actually aren’t to just be believed out of hand, then why should they buy into the allegations against Moore, when the only actual evidence presented thus far – the supposed signature in one accuser’s high school yearbook – has pretty much conclusively been demonstrated to be a forgery?
  • So, Franken and Conyers get protected by both their fellow Democrats and by Republicans Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan, who have begun “investigations” into their behavior by the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE).  This is akin to siccing Inspector Clouseau onto the paths of serial killers.  Placing these matters in the hands of the OCE simply means that nothing will happen for many months, as the “investigation” proceeds at a snail’s pace, in the hopes that it will all fade from the public’s collective memory in the meantime.  Then, once the “investigation” is completed, the results will be quietly released at about 6:30 ET on a Friday evening – preferably at the start of a holiday weekend – so as to incur the minimum possible media attention.
  • It’s a bi-partisan protection racket. – But of course, we all must keep in mind that it isn’t just Democrat members of congress who have much to lose here – it’s Republicans, too.  Conyers’ lawyer threatened over the weekend that, if his client goes down, he will take lots of other members of congress down with him.  That probably won’t be too hard for Conyers to achieve, given that a congressional slush fund has payed out roughly $18 million over the last 20 years in settlements of sexual harassment cases.  Oh, the humanity!
  • Their rush to protect Franken and Conyers by calling for OCE “investigations” doesn’t necessarily mean McConnell and Ryan have anything to hide themselves, but they do no doubt have many members of their respective houses of congress to protect, and they’re wasting no time doing it.  After all, whether Republican or Democrat, members of congress, like Ryan, McConnell and Pelosi, are members of America’s protected, ruling class.  They have all become quite accustomed to exempting themselves from the laws and mandated behaviors that apply to the rest of us, and they’ll be damned if they’re going to go down without a fight.
  • No one ever said that draining the DC Swamp was going to be easy.

Just another day in congressional protection racket America.

That is all.

The Fake Media Campaign To Protect Hillary Clinton Ramps Up To Full Force

Today’s Campaign Update

  • So, the narrative in the fake news media now is that it would somehow be inappropriate for the Justice Department to investigate President Trump’s “political opponent”, Hillary Rotten, er, Rodham Clinton.  That is the theme advanced by NBC’s Chuck Todd and two other fake reporters in a piece published a NBC.com on Tuesday.
  • To no one’s surprise, this piece – which simply advances the narrative being pushed jointly by the fake media at large and the rest of the Democrat Party – ignores the fact that as of today, Hillary Clinton is in fact no one’s political opponent.  She’s not running for anything, and has announced that she does not plan to run for anything in the future.  Thus, labeling her as the President’s “political opponent” is just a canard designed to make this life-long criminal immune from any prosecution at all.
  • The piece also ignores the fact that two of Hillary Clinton’s looming scandals germinated long before the 2016 election campaign.  The Uranium One scandal and her scandal involving illegal distribution of classifed information via her private email server date to her time as Secretary of State, and the years prior to that.  An immense amount of evidence exists in the public record today that she likely did in fact violate many federal laws related to these two scandals, and in fact most likely would have long ago been prosecuted if she were not a member of the nation’s protected political class.
  • Despite Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ hemming and hawing on Tuesday about whether there is sufficient evidence around either of these major scandals to warrant the appointment of a special counsel to investigate them (more on that in a moment), there would nothing at all improper were the Department of Justice to conduct a thorough investigation into a scandal (Uranium One) that ended with the sale of 20% of our nation’s uranium resources to Russian companies.  And the thought that Hillary Clinton or anyone else who serves in any presidential administration is somehow immune from prosecution for illegally sharing national security secrets on public servers is so absurd as to not deserve serious comment.  It’s abject nonsense that, taken to its logical conclusion, means that Todd and his fellow Democrats with press passes believe that the Fainting Felon is simply above the law, and that the country can have no national security at all.
  • The third major scandal in which The Coughing Crook is currently entangled involves the fact – and we know it to be an absolute fact at this point – that her campaign and the DNC colluded with Fusion GPS, a former British spy, and Russian agents to compile the fake Trump Dossier during the presidential campaign.  To contend, as Todd and his fellow fake journalists do, that Mrs. Clinton should somehow be exempt from the same investigation into Russian collusion that has now been targeting the Trump campaign for the last 6 months is bizarrely stupid and simply defies logic.
  • But hey, when have fake journalists like Chuck Todd ever allowed pesky things like facts and logic get in the way of their shilling for the Clintons and Obamas?  It’s how these people make their livings.
  • Now, let’s talk about Mr. Sessions’ unwillingness to say, in an exchange with Republican Rep. Jim Jordan during his testimony yesterday, whether or when he will name a special counsel to investigate all of the Pantsuit Princess’s alleged crimes.  While that answer is frustrating to those who want to see justice served, it’s important to understand the full context in which the Attorney General is operating.  In addition to having to determine whether or not sufficient factual evidence exists against the accused to warrant an investigation by a special counsel, DOJ must also determine that such an investigation cannot be adequately performed within the Department of Justice itself.
  • One major reason why a special counsel was appointed to investigation the whole media/Democrat Trump/Russia collusion fantasy was because it allegedly involved the sitting President who had appointed Mr. Sessions to become Attorney General and Rosenstein as his Deputy.  That is a clear conflict of interest that could only be avoided with the appointment of a special counsel.
  • No similar conflict exists where Hillary Clinton is concerned.  Thus, assuming this isn’t all being done just for show, General Sessions could well decide that a special counsel is not necessary because a full and fair investigation can be conducted at DOJ itself.
  • This is how the system is set up to work, like it or not.  All the rest of us can do is wait and see what happens, hoping against hope that Mr. Sessions can finally prove himself to be worthy of the job he holds.

Just another day in cleaning out the DC Swamp ain’t easy America.

That is all.

Robert Mueller’s Pretense of Impartiality Means Indictments Are Soon to Come

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Hey, distract yourself with this shiny object over here! – NBC reports this morning that Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his crew of Clinton/Obama shills is now investigating… wait for it…the Podesta Group!  No, that’s not John Podesta, who managed The Most Corrupt Woman in America’s presidential campaign, but his brother Tony Podesta, who runs a high-powered lobbying firm for Democrat interests in the nation’s capital.
  • It seems the Podesta Group neglected to properly disclose its lobbying activities on behalf of something called the European Center for a Modern Ukraine (ECMU) to the federal government, doing so only after its activities on behalf of this entity were disclosed in the fake news media.  That’s a felony, if the oversight was intentional.  Of course, it will be pretty much impossible for Mueller’s team to prove intent absent some sudden come-to-Jesus moment by someone at the Podesta Group, something that is about as likely to happen as the Cleveland Browns winning the Super Bowl.
  • If you’re getting excited about this news that Mueller’s sham investigation into a Democrat/Media-created fantasy of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign is suddenly aiming its guns in the direction of the Democrats, where we know real Russia collusion took place, well, cool your jets.  The NBC report is “news” based on leaks from the Mueller team, and is most likely just an effort by the Special Counsel’s office to try to build some public credibility.
  • Think about it:  Mueller is anything but stupid, a creature of the DC Swamp for 30+ years.  He knows that any findings against any Trump-related people by his investigation will be hopelessly tainted due to the fact that he has stacked his team with hyper-partisan hacks.  Given that his goal from the start has been to find something, anything with which to charge someone, anyone associated with the President with some kind of criminal activity in order to damage Mr. Trump, he knows that credibility with the public is crucial to achieving that goal.
  • The last thing he wants to do is turn his fantasy-based investigation in the direction where it really should be aimed, i.e., reality, but he knows he must at least put up the pretense of impartiality.  What better way to do that than by leaking to the very willing Democrat accomplices at NBC that he and his crack team of Clinton/Obama donors are “investigating” potential wrongdoing by a high-powered lobbying firm with a very familiar Democrat name at the top for possible crimes that will be pretty much impossible to prove?
  • If you don’t believe that this is how these swamp creatures and their media hack supporters think, I give you the response mid-week last week by MSNBC fake journalist Andrea Mitchell to the current reporting on the Clinton/Russia/Uranium scandal by reporters for The Hill.   When asked why MSNBC and NBC were maintaining radio silence on that scandal’s new revelations, Ms. Mitchell responded that her network had “already reported” the story in the past.  The Media Research Center determined that that “previous reporting” to which Mitchell referred amounted to NBC having spent all of 92 seconds reporting on earlier revelations in 2013.
  • This is what these fake media outlets do whenever they’re faced with an inconvenient scandal involving one or more of their Democrat heroes:  they file a single, perfunctory report on the matter, giving it the most biased slant possible, and then spend the next 20 years claiming that “we already reported that story.”  It’s like getting a flu shot – you take just a smidgen of the nasty stuff in order to make yourself immune from having to go through the full-blown illness.
  • This inoculation strategy is as old as the DC Swamp itself, and this is most likely exactly what the Special Counsel’s office is implementing with its “investigation” into disclosures by the Podesta Group.  By putting up the pretense of looking at a high-powered Democrat lobbying firm for possible technical violations, Mueller and his team are most likely setting the stage for announcing indictments of former Trump campaign adviser Paul Manafort or others who were involved in the campaign.  Not surprisingly, the NBC story even runs a photo of Manafort, and mentions the Mueller team’s early morning raid of his home that took place in July.  Coincidence?  Don’t kid yourself.
  • Thus, when accusations of the Special Counsel’s office’s obvious bias start to come, Mueller will now be able to defend himself and his team by saying “hey, we also looked at this Democrat firm over here.”  See this shiny object?
  • Simple.  Utterly corrupt, but elegantly simple.

Just another day in DC Swamp America.

That is all.

NBC Proves It Has The Best Fake News – CNN Jealous

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • The Army Times is reporting this morning that three U.S. Army Green Berets were killed yesterday in Niger.  My immediate question upon hearing that news is why in the hell do we have Green Berets in Niger?  Why in the hell do we continue to see our young men and women brought back to our country from non-strategic, far-off, perpetually unstable countries like Niger in body bags?  Now we have three more sets of American parents, spouses, brothers and sisters who must grieve the loss of their loved ones while wondering the same things I’m wondering.
  • One of the issues Donald Trump campaigned on was a promise to re-evaluate America’s ongoing policy of placing our people at risk in places like Niger.  He has kept many, many promises so far, but this is one his administration has yet to get around to doing.  Today would be a good time to jump-start that process.
  • Here’s how our national news media has changed in the last 70 years: During WWII and the administration of Democrat Franklin Roosevelt, the U.S. military was able to trust American journalists covering the war with foreknowledge of planned operations for the coming days and weeks, because they were American patriots who loved their country.  Isn’t that an amazing, almost unbelievable thing in light of the disgraceful, anti-American behavior we see in the fake news media today?  But it really is true.
  • During the early 1960s, the U.S. news media coordinated to refuse to report their knowledge that President John F. Kennedy was having an affair with Judith Campbell Exner, who was also involved with mob boss Sam Giancana.  NBC knew about it at the time, as did CBS, ABC, the New York Times, Time Magazine and the Washington Post.  But those media outlets all approved of John Kennedy and all thus agreed to keep the matter – which placed the U.S. president at great peril of being blackmailed – secret from the American public.
  • During the Clinton Administration, the Drudge Report was just an obscure news accumulator site until it became the first news outlet to report the fact that Slick Willie was having an affair with one of his interns in the Oval Office.  We found out later that several fake reporters at major mainstream media outlets had had that story, but sat on it for months until the Drudge revelation force them to actually do their jobs.
  • Fast forward to 2017, and we have NBC News issuing a report Tuesday morning, based on nothing but the alleged statements of several unidentified sources, that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson got angry at his boss – President Trump – one day, referred to him as a “moron”, and considered quitting his job until he was counseled by Vice President Mike Pence.  Given NBC News’ track record for eagerly filing any false story that its fake editors and fake reporters believe would be harmful to this President and his Administration, the public can have no confidence whatsoever that any of NBC’s alleged “sources” really said that to its fake reporter, or if indeed these “sources” really even exist.
  • But there it is.  And so, the Secretary of State, his staff and press spokesperson, the Vice President and his staff, and even the President of the United States of America and his staff had to take time out of their incredibly busy schedules on Tuesday to refute a story that is an absolute disgrace to journalism, and which the same fake reporters and fake editors would have never even considered filing in any Democrat administration.  To make it all even more disgusting, the President was peppered with questions about this disgrace of a non-story by leering fake reporters while he was in Las Vegas on a mission to comfort the families of the victims of Sunday’s mass shooting in that city, and to thank the police officers and others who intervened to prevent further loss of life.
  • Even if the story were true, think about what it actually is:  an employee who gets pissed off at his boss and calls him a “moron” behind his back in a fit of pique, and threatens to quit.  I know this doesn’t apply to many, many lefties, but who among those of us who have had to work for a living during our lives has not gotten angry at a boss at some point and grumbled that he or she was a “moron”, an “idiot”, or my own favorite, a “raging dimwit”?  Yes, I’ve gotten mad at a boss or two in the past myself, and I’ve been incredibly lucky in the people I’ve had the pleasure of working for.
  • At the end of the day, all I could think of was this:  Is there a lower way to make a living in America today than to be a fake journalist faking the news at one of these fake news outlets?  I can’t think of one.  Can you?

Just another day in fake journalists faking the news America.

Media’s “Trump Is A Monster” Narrative Dies In Houston

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • We should expect the fake journalists, fake anchors and fake editors at CNN, the NYTimes, the WaPo and the broadcast networks to shift their coverage away from Hurricane Harvey starting today.  The images and films from President Trump’s and First Lady Melania Trump’s visit to Houston on Saturday are simply too compelling and devastating to the media/Democrat concocted “Trump is a monster” narrative for them to continue airing them.  Thus, we can anticipate lots and lots of focus on things like DACA, the debt ceiling and the federal budget this week, even though disaster coverage is without question more lucrative and better for ratings at CNN.  Because this is what the fake news media does in its never-ending role as sad toadies for the Democrat Party.
  • If you want a great example of how the President’s humanizing visit to Houston and Louisiana is destroying the left’s world view, take a look as this piece, which discusses the shock an MSNBC reporter has felt as he’s been assaulted by the angry left  for tweeting a message acknowledging the reality of the President’s visit, and how Houstonians of all ages, colors and genders reacted to him.  Very educational about the true agenda of those on the angry left.
  • Here’s the reality that the fake news media has run smack-dab into over the last week, while covering the recovery efforts in Texas:  Most Americans are just really good, normal people.  They care about one another, they help one another, the rednecks and Cajuns in their fishing boats don’t pick and choose to rescue the people who look just like them first, leaving those with different-colored skin to wait in line.  They rush into harm’s way and start getting people out indiscriminately, take them to safety, and rush back in to do it all over again.
  • For the media people who live in their safe little bubbles in New York, Washington and Los Angeles, this is utterly shocking.  Because their own reporting has constantly informed them that everyone out there in “flyover country”, i.e., the other 98% of America, is a hateful racist, bigots who only want to harm people who aren’t just like they are.
  • I spent most of last week in Las Vegas, at a hotel that did not carry Fox News, and was thus forced to watch the coverage on CNN and, to a much lesser extent, MSNBC.  This turned out to be a very gratifying experience, as reporter after reporter found him- or herself utterly frustrated whenever they would ask any Texan a leading question designed to promote conflict, which is all they ever try to do.  Watching these elitist simpletons try to recover from their shock as Texan after Texan invariably responded with only caring and gratitude towards everyone who was working to help, and to the local, state and federal officials who were organizing shelter and recovery efforts, was a true heart-warming experience for me.
  • These fake news outlets, who have been coordinating with the Democrat Party for the last 10 months to try to create the “next Watergate” out of whole cloth, all went into their coverage of the Harvey catastrophe anticipating being able to create the “next Katrina”.  Now, they’re all down in the mouth be cause a) Houston isn’t New Orleans, b) Texas isn’t Louisiana and has a vastly more competent government, and c) it isn’t 2005 anymore, and FEMA and the rest of the federal government has learned a lot about how to respond to such events over the last dozen years.
  • But for all these left-wingers in the fake news media and the Democrats whose talking points they parrot each and every day, the worst learning out of all of this is that their efforts to portray the current POTUS as a deranged monster cannot survive when they run up against real video of him being himself among a group of struggling, displaced Americans of all colors, sizes, shapes, ages and creeds.
  • Donald Trump isn’t a monster at all.  He’s a real President, and a real American.  And that is a truth the fake news media simply cannot focus on for any length of time.  Thus, ratings and website hits be damned, these fake news sites will now move onto other topics that fit better with their narrative, because that is who they are, and what they do.

Just another day in fake news media America.

That is all.

Exactly Whose Civil Rights Were Violated In Charlottesville?

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • The Justice Department announced late Saturday that it was sending in the feds to conduct an investigation into potential civil rights violations amid all the violence that took place in Charlottesville, earlier that day.  The big question is, whose civil rights were violated?  Let’s review the events of the day:
    • You had a properly permitted demonstration by a bunch of white supremacist dimwits that took place without violence;
    • Until, that is, those dimwits were set upon by a bunch of Antifa and Black Lives Matters agitators who were not properly permitted;
    • Violent clashes took place when law enforcement officials were reportedly ordered by Democrat officeholders not to try to prevent them, exactly as happened earlier in the year in Berkeley;
    • After the white supremacist dimwits had been dispersed, one of them decided to commit murder by driving his car into a pack of the leftist agitators, most of whom were white;
    • The one leftist killed by the idiot was also white.
  • So, whose civil rights were violated in Charlottesville on Saturday?  As detestable as they are, the white supremacists did have a legal permit for their repugnant demonstrations.  Violence only broke out when they were set upon by an obviously orchestrated, non-permitted group of leftist thugs.  The murderer made no racial distinction about who he attempted to kill, and killed only a fellow white person.
  • If the Justice Department investigators want to properly do their jobs, they might want to start by investigating the leftwing political activist Mayor of Charlottesville and VA Governor Terry McAuliffe, and determine which of them ordered the police to stand down and allow the non-permitted leftwing agitators to assault the white supremacists.  It is, after all, a felony for any official to knowingly make a decision that causes any protesters to be violently assaulted while in the exercise of their first amendment rights.  The investigators might also want to determine which Soros-funded leftist group it was that organized and paid those leftist agitators to be there on Saturday.  Other than those things, it’s really hard to see, based on the information in the public domain thus far, what other “civil rights” violations might have taken place in Charlottesville on Saturday.
  • Carrying tiki torches and nazi flags, and chanting idiotic white power slogans is detestable for sure.  It is also free speech protected by the First Amendment to the Constitution, and it is a federal crime to violently interfere with anyone’s right to exercise free speech.
  • I will no doubt be attacked and accuse of all sorts of false things for writing this, but if we aren’t willing to stand up for the protection of free speech and peaceful assembly in this country, then we soon won’t have a country.
  • The Mooch turns media moocher. – The Mooch is back, and he’s cashing in, folks, obviously trying to take full advantage of his 15 minutes – make that 10 days – of fame, and the fake news media is perfectly willing to play host to the comeback, as long as he’s critical of only the ‘right’ people.  Those people, of course, include White House Chief Strategy Advisor, Steve Bannon, but do not include National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster or any of the career Obama loyalists who still infest the White House staff.
  • During his interview with fake anchor and longtime Clinton toady George Stephanopolous, The Mooch identified only one senior advisor by name as being a negative influence on the President, and that was Bannon, who has been the main White House target of the fake news media since Inauguration Day.  The Mooch identified Bannon as a likely source of many of the leaks that have come out of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. since January – which is a very common assumption, and not really news at all – and predicted that he’d be removed by new Chief of Staff John Kelly soon.
  • As long as The Mooch toes this party line, and doesn’t criticize McMaster or any of the media’s sacred cows in the White House, he’ll be a golden boy, and we’ll be seeing a ton of him on network TV in the coming weeks and months.  After all, with Senator From The News Media John McCain out of action, there is a ton of fake Republican air time to be filled, and the networks and CNN can only go to the Lindsey Graham well so many times.   The Mooch’s next stop, in fact, is tonight on CBS’s The Late Show, where he will be interviewed by Trump-hater Stephen Colbert.  If he gives Colbert enough red meat about Bannon, he’ll be on MSNBC with Chris Matthews by Wednesday.
  • Pretty soon, we’ll have to start calling him The Media Mooch.  It’s a great gig if you’re willing to sell yourself out, and with a nickname like The Mooch, can there really be any doubt on that score?

Trump Triumphs in Europe

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • President Trump made a magnificent and inspiring speech in Poland yesterday, one filled with a soaring defense of democracy and free societies and even a free press.  Naturally, the fake free press in the U.S. in unison declared the speech to be “dark”, in keeping with the approved talking points it had received in advance from the Democrat Party.
  • CNN’s bed-wetting fake White House reporter, the petulant Jim Acosta, told that network’s fading viewer base that President Trump’s joint press conference with Poland’s President Andrezj Duda was “fake news” because he took two questions from conservative news organizations in between questions from hyper-aggressive fake reporters from NBC and other leftist fake news outlets.  Mr. Acosta obviously suffers under the delusions that what he is doing is exactly the same as how Sam Donaldson performed during the Reagan years.  The truth, of course, is that Jim Acosta is not fit to clean Sam Donaldson’s Fruit of the Looms.
  • Speaking of President Duda and CNN, CNN and other fake media outlets breathlessly reported throughout the day that Mr. Duda’s wife refused to shake hands with President and Melania Trump when they met yesterday.  Some fake outlets continued to purvey that false report even after films of the first couples shaking hands were broadly disseminated late in the day.  Mr. Duda got so fed up with it that he issued a tweet saying “Contrary to some surprising reports my wife did shake hands with Mrs. and Mr. Trump after a great visit. Let’s FIGHT FAKE NEWS.”  After which Jim Acosta no doubt needed a change in underwear.
  • In other fake news news, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow received fake documents from some anonymous source yesterday that purport to prove that some Trump campaign officials were colluding with the Russians last year.  The amazing thing about this story is that, rather than just go on the air and pretend the documents were real, as we would have expected Ms. Maddow to do in the normal course of her efforts to libel the President, she actually figured out they were fake and warned other reporters of their fakeness.  Just another sure sign that the Democrat/Media axis of nitwittery has decided to move along from their fake collusion fantasy play.
  • President Trump, in his speech yesterday, took a very aggressive posture towards Vladimir Putin and Russia, making it even more difficult for the Media/Democrat complex to keep up the Collusion facade.  By yesterday afternoon, all fake reporters were left with was to speculate about how “frightening” it is to have Donald Trump representing the U.S. in a conversation with the leader of Russia, a prospect far more normal Americans feared when Barack Obama was representing the U.S. in such discussions.
  • As always happens at G20 Summits, violent protests by anti-capitalist lunatics broke out on the streets, and of course some in the fake news media tried to imply the protests were about President Trump.  Another outright lie.
  • In other news, PA Senator Pat Toomey told a local TV station that the reason why Senate Republicans didn’t have an Obamacare replacement plan ready in January was “because we didn’t think Trump would win.”  *sigh*.  Of course, that doesn’t help to explain Senate Republicans still don’t have an Obamacare replacement plan ready in July, does it?  Honestly, congressional Republicans are somewhat tolerable these days only because they aren’t congressional Democrats.

CNN Slathers More Lipstick On Its Fakenews Pig

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • The breathless headline at Buzzfeed this morning reads “CNN Is Imposing Strict New Rules On Its Russia Coverage”.  Wow.  “Strict new rules,” huh?  What must those be?  Well, if you read the actual story itself – which we know that most of Buzzfeed’s short attention-span browsers won’t, you find that these “strict new rules” involve CNN’s fake journalists having to – gasp! – check with a couple of editors before rushing their unsourced fake stories to the CNN fakenews website.  What this tell us, if you understand what’s happening here, is that, prior to the issuance of this memo, CNN’s fake journalists could just toss stuff up there without having to check with an editor.  Given that the memo was issued after CNN was revealed yet again has having posted an utterly false hatchet job on a former Trump campaign operative, it should come as no surprise that CNN has to this point been exercising literally no journalistic process at all.
  • But now they are, right?  Well, no.  The thing to understand about this much-ballyhooed memo is that it targets only CNN’s fake journalists who post website stories.  It does not impact CNN’s even faker reporters, anchors and talking heads to infest the fake news network’s television coverage.  Those people are still free to toss out any slander, libel or fairy tale they want to toss while on the air.  So, despite Buzzfeed’s blaring headline, it turns out these “strict new rules” are just CNN’s way of slathering a bunch more lipstick on its #fakenews pig.
  • But hey, CNN is far from the only TV network dedicated to the pursuit and dissemination of fake news.  Take NBC’s Chuck Todd as a great example.  Mr. Todd, on his Meet the Press Sunday morning program, interviewed Communist Senator Bernie Sanders for eight full minutes without asking him a single question about why he and his wife find themselves under investigation by the FBI.  This “oversight” by Mr. Todd extends the stonewall of this story by his entire network, which has to this point failed to spend a single second of air time informing its viewers of the Commie’s legal dilemma.
  • But hey, it’s not just CNN and NBC:  CBS and ABC have also joined NBC in stonewalling the Sanders story.  See, FBI investigations are only “news” to the fake news networks when they target Republicans.
  • But back to CNN:  the greatest part of this entire episode is that CNN fake reporter Brian Stelter had to admit in his newsletter on Sunday that CNN’s editors are refusing comment on the matter, even to CNN’s own fake reporters!  That, folks, is 100% priceless right there.
  • Tired of Winning Yet?:  Variety’s Sonya Saraiya reports in her weekend column that, after just 3 weeks on the air at her new home of NBC, Megyn Kelly’s “star is dimmer than ever.”  Ms. Saraiya continues:  “Kelly is didactic without being trustworthy; patronizing without being impressive. Her voiceover suggests doom without really proving it; there’s a scare-mongering side to her reportage. And, most importantly: She’s alienated everyone.”  Ouch.  Of course, Ms. Kelly’s planned morning program does not debut to September, so she hasn’t had a chance to alienate NBC’s morning viewers just yet.  But she will; oh yes, she will.

Just one more day in #fakenews media America.

Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) – 5.12.2017

  • Tired of winning yet?  Part I.:   Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) reported on Thursday that its recent sweeps have resulted in the rounding up of more than 1,300 members of Mexican drug and human trafficking gangs.  The main talking point the Democrats and fake reporters in the fake news media were able to agree on was to focus on the fact that more than 800 of those arrested were U.S. citizens, as if anyone with functioning synapses in their cranial cavities gives a flying rat’s ass.
  • Tired of winning yet?  Part II.:  The Labor Department reports that new unemployment claims for the most recent reporting period fell to their lowest level since 1988.  1988, of course, was the last time we had a President of the United States who was not an integral part of the Washington, D.C. establishment.  Coincidence?
  • But the current President is getting bad, bad advice, and needs to shake up his communications team.:  During an interview with the sitting President of the United States on Thursday, NBC fake news anchor Lester Holt – the man with the highest forehead on the face of God’s green earth – chose to rudely interrupt Mr. Trump and repeat questions constantly in what was one of the most disrespectful interviews of any president in history.  Unfortunately, President Trump chose to sit calmly through the badgering without pushing back, something he certainly would not have done during the campaign.  This is an indication that he is taking advice from his establishment communications advisers, who are no doubt telling him that if he just plays nice with these fake journalists, they will eventually start playing nicer with him.
  • This is exactly the wrong advice for this particular President to accept.:  Donald Trump was elected largely because he refused to play nice with the fake news media, who have treated him as a political freak since the day he announced his candidacy.  He was elected because he was singularly unafraid of the fake news media, and he gave bombastic press conferences like the one he gave so well back in February.  That is the model of press engagement he should be following, not this model of trying to have calm, sit-down interviews with the preening, self-absorbed jack-asses who fake the nightly news.
  • But the people he has around him are all scared to death of the fake news media.:  They are all telling the President that if he doesn’t play nice with the Lester Holts of the world, why, he will get negative press.  And that tells you that they simply have no clue why Mr. Trump won the election in the first place, which was largely because he gets nothing but negative press.  Unfortunately, Mr. Trump is now making the same mistakes in this regard that every Republican president in modern times – with the exception of Ronald Reagan at times  – has made, accepting advice from communications advisers that is designed to work for Democrats, not Republicans.  It’s the only model these advisers know to teach, and it never works for Republican politicians.
  • President Trump desperately needs to fire most of his communications team, or move them into other jobs, and bring in new people who understand him personally.:  He needs to bring in people like Laura Ingraham, or Kimberly Guilfoyle of Fox News, both of whom have been rumored as potential senior communications advisers in the past, and both of whom clearly understand him as a person and as a political figure, and who would be loyal to the President.  A big shake-up needs to happen, and it needs to happen soon.
  • Here’s what he needed to do with Lester Holt yesterday.:  About the third time Holt interrupted him, he should have simply told Holt that he could either quit interrupting and show proper respect for the office he holds, or the interview would be terminated.  And then the next time Holt interrupted, he should have simply ended the interview.  Why?  Because instinctively, that’s what Donald Trump would do.  And Donald Trump, not these pathetic advisers, is who the American people elected to serve as President.  This is not rocket science.

Just another day in Fake News Media America.

That is all.
