Read the Key Quotes From William Barr Interview on Fox News

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

Here are the highlights from AG William Barr’s interview with Bill Hemmer on Fox News Friday morning. This is a big deal.:

“This [The FBI spying on the Trump Campaign] was handled at the very senior levels of these agencies. It wasn’t handled in the ordinary way.”

“We have a number of investigations underway.”

“I’ve been trying to get answers to the questions, and I’ve found that a lot of the answers have been inadequate and some of the explanations I’ve gotten don’t hang together. In a sense, I have more questions today than when I first started.”

“People have to find out what the government was doing during that period. If we’re worried about foreign influence, for the very same reason we should be worried about whether government officials abuse their power and put their thumb on the scale. . . . I’m not saying that happened, but it’s something we have to look at.”

Cutaway to Devin Nunes:

“What you’re seeing is a real attorney general who is not going to take this nonsense that the Clinton Campaign started.” – Devin Nunes, in a cutaway from the interview.

“This is all about narrative-building by the left to cover up what they did. The media is culpable for this nonsense.” – Devin Nunes

“Bob Mueller knew the day he walked in the door that there was no evidence of Trump/Russia collusion.” – Devin Nunes

Back to Barr:

“Well, I think it’s a laughable charge, and it’s being made to discredit me, partly because they may be concerned about the outcome of the review. Obviously, you can look at my testimony and can see on its face that there is nothing inaccurate about it.”  William Barr, on San Fran Nan’s absurd charge that he lied to congress.

Hemmer: “When you took this job, did you think Democrats would make you a target?”

Barr: “Yes…but I felt I was in a position where this kind of criticism wouldn’t bother me much.”

Hemmer: What about the contempt charge from Congress?

Barr: Well, that’s part of the political game, the political circus that’s being played out. it doesn’t surprise me.”

Hemmer: You called it a circus. Do you feel threatened?

Barr: “No, I don’t feel threatened.

Hemmer: How do you think Brennan and Clapper handled the Russia investigation?

Barr: “I don’t want to speculate…I know some of the facts, but it’s premature to be discussing them.”

Hemmer: Can you tell us what the Steel Dossier had to do with their investigation?

Barr: “That’s one of the questions we’re going to have to look at. It’s a very unusual situation to have opposition research like that – especially one that on its face had a number of clear mistakes and a somewhat jejune analysis – and to use that to conduct counterintelligence against an American political campaign is a strange development. I’m not sure what role it played, but that’s something we’ll have to look at.”

Hemmer: Do you smell a rat in this?

Barr: “I don’t know if I’d describe it as a rat. I would just say that the answers I’m getting are not sufficient.

Hemmer: Republicans have said for months that Brennan, Clapper, maybe Comey have had it in for Trump. Do you believe that’s the case?

Barr: “Again, I’m not gonna speculate about their motives.”

Hemmer: In the period between election day and the inauguration, did anyone in government take action to justify their decisions?

Barr: “I think there were some very strange developments during that period – that’s one of the things we want to look into. Such as the handling of the meeting on January 6 between the intelligence chiefs and the President and the leaking of information subsequent to that meeting.”

Hemmer: Was that meeting in New York City? In Trump Tower?

Barr: “Yes.”

Hemmer: What questions do you have about what happened that day?

Barr: [smiling] “Again, I’m not gonna get into that. It’s one of the things we need to look at.”

Hemmer: Can you characterize how far advanced you are in looking into that meeting?

Barr: “We’re still in the stage of gathering all the information.”

Hemmer: Did you consider possible witness tampering on the part of President Trump once you got the Mueller Report?

Barr: “That’s a misconception. He [Don McGann] was not asked to change his testimony. That was a reaction to a press story in the New York Times that claimed that Trump had told him to fire Mueller. Trump was mad at the word “fire” and claimed he had never directed McGann to fire Mueller. And in fact, elsewhere the report does say that McGann was told by Trump to talk to Rosenstein to complain about conflicts of interest Mueller had and have Mueller removed for conflicts of interest.”

The Week in Review: What, Me Worry?

The Campaign Update Week in Review
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

[The week just past as chronicled on the @GDBlackmon Twitter feed.]

The week began with a perfect meme of fake conservative CNN commentator Anna Navarro sounding just like Joseph Goebbels. It only got better from there.

Jessica Fletcher accurately sums up our fake news media’s biased coverage of hostilities between Israel and Hamas, which were instigated entirely by Hamas, though you’d never know it from reading the Associated Press.

The Pantsuit Princess, who stole the 2016 Democrat nomination and coordinated with Barack Obama to try to steal the general election, was still running around claiming the election was stolen from her. Because projection is what Democrats do.:

Meanwhile, at the Met Gala in New York, they were rolling out the Coughing Crook’s new wardrobe as she preps her run for the 2020 nomination.:

Creepy Uncle Joe was fumbling through the Democrat Playbook in South Carolina, doing his best to scare the Black folks with the contemptible lie that Republicans want to “bring back Jim Crow” laws. *sigh*:

But hey, fumbling through the playbook got the old hack a big lead over the field, as The Commie and all the media’s “rising stars” tumbled around in his wake.:

Seriously, does anybody care?:

More layoffs were taking place at CNN, but no one who is actually responsible for the collapse of this fake news channels ratings will suffer.:

Rob Schneider proved that not everyone in the entertainment industry is a vain, vacuous nitwit.:

Former FBI official Kevin Brock summed up the precarious legal position of ex-FBI Director and current Teenage Drama Queen James Comey.:

Nancy Pelosi engages in outright seditionist speech on pretty much a daily basis now.:

No, seriously, what is it?:

True. But amazingly, he’s still not quite as dumb as Kirsten Gillibrand.:

CNN’s Royal Eunuch was shoved out in front of the cameras to assure all those CNN employees who’d just been laid off that they weren’t really laid off.:

Things were going so great with the economy and otherwise for President Donald Trump that the news-fakers at the New York Times decided they needed to reach into their bag of negative stuff and toss some of it out there. It didn’t work. It never does.:

Louisiana Senator John Kennedy was gettin’ real tired of James Comey’s bullshit.:

Greg Budell and I came up with a great new nickname for repugnant California Cong. Eric Swalwell: El Rey de las Gilipollas. Has a catchy ring to it. Swalwell’s so dumb he’ll probably take it as a compliment.:

Whenever she wasn’t talking sedition, San Fran Nan was talking gibberish. Sometimes, she did both at once.:

Jerrold Nadler said we are “in a constitutional crisis,” and it was obvious that everyone in the fake news media had gotten their daily DNC/Media Talking Points Memo well in advance.:

Meanwhile, ostensibly-Republican Senator Richard Burr was busy facilitating the Democrat Party’s ongoing efforts to destroy our country through the Senate Intelligence Committee, which he chairs.:

Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan nails it here.:

Measles epidemics were breaking out all over the world. Welcome to the joys of open borders, folks.:

Oily Rod Rosenstein finally left the Department of Justice this week. Never forget the truth about this skunk.:

If you missed this, you should read it now. Seriously, just read it.:

President Trump’s public approval ratings surged to an all-time high with so much #WINNING going on in our economy…:

…which had the fake news media in a bit of a panic.:

Rand Paul was not happy with Richard Burr. Not happy at all.:

If you don’t follow Titania McGrath on Twitter, you are really missing out.:

With Creepy Uncle Joe dominating the polls, it was a race to the bottom for the Democrat also-rans, never-weres and former “rising stars”.:

Could she take Juan Williams with her? Asking for a friend.:

The Teenage Drama Queen had himself a “townhall” show on CNN Thursday night. He’d have been better off huddling with his defense lawyers.:

Someone really should let the Teen Drama Queen know he has a right to remain silent.:

Jabba the Nadler announced on Friday that Robert Mueller would not be testifying before his Kangaroo Court Committee anytime soon. Most likely, Jabba is getting cold feet because he suddenly realized that Mueller would have to take questions from Republicans, too. That would not be a good thing for the Deep State Jabba is sworn to protect.:

Haven’t heard much from Ann Coulter lately – maybe this is why.:

If only it were true…:

Legend in her own mind Stacey Abrams – who continues to “identify” as the Governor of Georgia despite losing by 55,000 votes – took Trump Derangement Syndrome to new heights. You seriously cannot make this stuff up, folks.:

I never thought anyone could be more tiresome than John “Didja Know My Dad Was A Postman” Kasich. Bill Weld proved me wrong.:

The week ended with President Trump delivering another classic kill shot, this time at current media prom date Mayor Pete.:

No one who sees this mashup will ever be able to get it out of their mind.:

Led by Nadler, Despicable House Democrats Hold the Nation Hostage

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

Strategery, Democrat style. – So, first you create a Constitutional crisis by taking a vote of the House Judiciary Committee to hold the Attorney General of the United States in contempt over an absurd claim that he “lied” to the Committee a month ago (he didn’t), and that he won’t release a full, unredacted version of the Mueller Report to congress so the Democrats can leak parts of it to their pals at the New York Times (he can’t do that without committing a felony himself).

After you’ve done that, you send Jabba the Nadler out to tell the breathless, fawning fake news media that the country is in a Constitutional crisis:

Oh, wait, wrong clip. Here you go:

See how that works?  Odd, huh?

Let’s all remember that every step of what has happened with Jabba The Nadler’s committee this year was all pre-planned way back in November, just days after the election. That was when Sr. Editor at The Federalist Mollie Hemingway happened to be sitting across the aisle on an Amtrak train from Jabba, and overheard him having a loud telephone conversation in which he bragged about his and Nancy Pelosi’s and Adam Schiff’s plans to do everything you’ve seen taking place this year. She wrote this prescient piece on November 7, yet all of her “colleagues” in the fake news media continue to pretend this is all taking place organically, because the Democrats just can’t help doing what they’re doing because of the Orange Man Bad in the White House.

None of this is organic. Never forget that everything today’s Democrats do is Kabuki theater designed to deceive their shamefully dimwitted and uninformed voter base. They believe most Americans are hopelessly dense, clueless and uninformed of actual facts, and believe they can just lie to them with impunity as a means of obtaining and maintaining political power. Sadly, they are often correct.

It’s also important to remember these things as well:

  • Barr has already release about 95% of the Mueller Report to the public – Democrats say this is not enough;
  • Barr has already made 98% of the Mueller Report available for Democrat members of congress to view in a secure room without the ability to make copies of it that they could leak to the press. Not one Democrat has taken advantage of viewing it in the 3 weeks that it’s been available;
  • Barr legally cannot make 100% available to the public because some of the material in the Report is protected grand jury information. He knows if he allows skunks and snakes like Jabba and Adam Schiff and Eric Swallwell to have the full report, the full report will appear on the front page of the New York Times and the Washington Post the next morning;
  • The courts have consistently held that grand jury information must be withheld from the public in order to protect the rights of persons who offered testimony but were not pursued by said grand juries. In pursuing this information for the purpose of leaking it to the fake news media, congressional Democrats are actively attempting to harm U.S. citizens who are innocent of any crime.

That’s the reality of this silly situation, which has been intentionally and completely artificially constructed out of whole cloth by despicable congressional Democrats and their even more-despicable buddies in the news media.

Of course, by going down this particular road they have essentially left President Donald Trump with no choice but to exercise his right to executive privilege over not just the Mueller Report, but over any and all documents related to it. This is a right the President could have exercised throughout the abusive Mueller Witch Hunt, but chose not to do so in the name of cooperating with the Chief of the American Gestapo.

That the President now feels the need to exercise that right as it relates to the House of Representatives tells us exactly how abusive the despicable Democrats have become in their desperate effort to smear Attorney General William Barr.

One final reminder: The Democrats and their media toadies are desperate to smear Barr in the public consciousness because Barr has repeatedly promised to get to the bottom of the Obama Administration’s massive spying activities targeted at the Trump Campaign throughout 2016. They all know that if he succeeds in that quest, people are going to prison.

So this is not just a fight for raw political power: For many of these despicable people, it is a fight for survival. These are the reasons the Democrat Party is basically holding our nation hostage.

It is a fight they must lose if our nation is to maintain a system of real justice.

That is all.

Trump’s Tax Returns Show the Mark of a Great Businessman

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

Hey, y’all, Donald Trump lost a lot of money in the 1980s! – That’s the big “bomb” the news-fakers at the New York Times dropped on President Donald Trump Tuesday night, as the paper somehow got hold of a decade of Trump’s tax returns. In all, the returns show that Trump’s real estate and casino businesses lost over a billion dollars during the 10-year period.

Well, for tax purposes, that is. Anyone familiar with how the tax code works, i.e., nobody who works for the NYTimes, would know that tax losses do not necessarily reflect actual business losses.  The President himself addressed this idiotic move by the Times on his Twitter account this morning:

As a businessman, Donald Trump has stated repeatedly and unfailingly anytime this stupid subject has been raised by our craven fake media that he took full advantage of the U.S. tax code in the conduct of his business ventures. The demented nutjobs at the NYTimes – whose own business, by the way, also takes full advantage of the U.S. tax code – wants you to think that this means Trump is somehow a really bad guy who was stealing from you personally.

But you know what this really makes Trump? A smart businessman.

Here’s why: Tax “write-offs” exist in the code for a reason. They exist because at some point in time the U.S. congress felt it would be advantageous to the U.S. economy to incentivize certain behaviors in the business world.

Anyone with any understanding of the history of the 1980s – which again would obviously exclude anyone working for the despicable NYTimes – would know that Ronald Reagan came into office in 1981 in the midst of a major recession created by Jimmy Carter and convinced congress to pass a major tax reform designed to boost economic growth.

The new tax code (which I understand because I was an accountant doing tax work in the 1980s) that came out of that reform effort included various incentives, like the old ACRS system of accelerated depreciation, designed to increase investment of new capital in the building and manufacturing of hard assets. You know, stuff like high rise office buildings and fancy high-rise condo developments in oh, say, Manhattan.

Like me, many of my readers live in Texas. Those of us over the age of, say, 50 will remember that the skylines of Houston and Dallas were completely transformed during the 1980s, with new high-rise buildings like the ones Donald Trump was building and buying and selling in Manhattan also being built in those Texas cities by major developers like Trammel Crow.

See, building big buildings like that and manufacturing all manner of hard goods benefits the economy by creating … wait for it, Democrats because I know you don’t know the answer here … JOBS. Oh, and that other thing all Democrats hate with a passion, ECONOMIC GROWTH.

How did that new tax code work out for America? Well – listen closely all you economic ignoramuses in the Democrat Party and the fake news media – it created the LONGEST AND BIGGEST ECONOMIC EXPANSION IN MODERN HISTORY.

Oh, hey, guess which individual’s business empire was in a better position than anyone else in America in 1981 to take full advantage of the incentives offered by this handy new tax code?

That would be a guy named Donald John Trump.

And that’s really all there is to know about this particular stupid non-story.

That is all.

The Media Mounts a Final Desperate Effort to Protect Barack Obama

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

The fake news media is going into overdrive. – Over the last 48 hours, we have now had the three fakest fake news outlets push their toadyism on behalf of the panicking Democrats and Deep State to a new level. On Wednesday night, the New York Times put the deep state spin on the Obama FBI’s spying operations against the Trump Campaign; Thursday night saw the release of CNN’s latest fake poll, a desperate effort to prop up the flagging campaign of Irish Bob O’Rourke; and Friday afternoon, the reliable old Washington Post jumped in with an op/ed from the execrable hack Paul Waldman.

Waldman’s piece is an obvious effort to set the narrative for the deep state as Attorney General William Barr pursues his own investigations into the origins of the Obama FBI/DOJ/CIA spying operations against the Trump Campaign. The goal of this narrative is to smear Barr – who, it is now obvious, is our nation’s first real, functional attorney general concerned about the rule of law in over a decade – in an effort to render any findings he makes as illegitimate, nothing but the work of Donald Trump weaponizing the Department of Justice to go after his opponents.

It is, in other words, the ultimate case of the media/Democrat favorite tactic of Projection: The tactic of accusing your opponents of doing exactly the things you yourself are in fact guilty of having done.

This is the beginning of a desperate effort by the Democrat/media propaganda complex to provide one final layer of cover for the head honcho who actually did deploy the FBI and DOJ and CIA to attack his opponents. It’s an operation designed to protect the guy who oversaw the entire operation and actively guided it – America’s Worst Mistake, Barack Hussein Obama. For those of us who have been paying close attention to all of the information that has come out into the public domain, Obama’s fingerprints have always been all over this illegal spying operation mounted against the opposition party’s presidential campaign.

The spying on the Trump Campaign was mounted as a counterintelligence operation by the FBI, recommended first by CIA Director John Brennan, authorized by FBI Director James Comey and managed by Deputy Chief of the Counterintelligence Division Peter Strzok. As a matter of routine, the President of the United States is given weekly briefings of the FBI’s counterintelligence operations. At the very least, Obama was fully aware of everything that was going on, a reality borne out in myriad text messages between Strzok and his paramour Lisa Page.

All of this and so much more is a matter of public record already – it is not in doubt. The fake news media has done everything it can to keep the public living in blissful ignorance about it all, but more and more Americans become aware every day, and that trend will speed up massively with the release of the pending Horowitz reports and the coming declassification of all of the underlying documents by President Trump, which will also begin to take place in the coming weeks.

So Barr must be smeared – it’s the media’s only remaining shield for Obama His Own Self. And it isn’t just Barr – other key players must and will be smeared as well.

You should expect the Post or the Times to quickly begin mounting a similar smear campaign against DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, since he is supposed to issue his own reports on a) the rampant Obama-era abuse of the FISA process, and b) the leaking habits of ex-FBI Director and current Teen Drama Queen James Comey in the coming weeks. Why? Because all the perceived enemies of the Deep State/Democrat Party must be smeared. Their reputations must be besmirched as a matter of protecting the media’s puppet masters.

What about Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham? You should expect to soon see the media mounting a smear campaign against him as well, since he is promising to use his committee to mount its own investigation into the origins of the spying operation. Graham, a life-long bachelor, has long been the subject of rumors that he is a closeted gay man. Already, we are seeing despicable cretins like Rosie O’Donnell, Alec Baldwin and Chelsea Handler launching gay smears at him via their own Twitter accounts. You should expect to see the Usual Suspect media outlets – The Post, the Times, CNN, MSNBC, etc. – to soon start running stories pushing rumors about Graham, stories they would never even consider running about any Democrat.

Yes, it is despicable. Yes, it is beneath contempt. But hey, this the fake news media and Democrats we’re talking about here. You expected something else?

The New York Times Continues Providing Cover for the Deep State

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

Old New York Times Slogan: All the news that’s fit to print.

New New York Times Slogan: All the leaks that support the Deep State Narrative.

This has become so laughably predictable that you can’t even take it seriously anymore. Thursday afternoon, the news fakers at the New York Times published a piece – of course based solely on leaks from some deep state Obama holdover within the FBI – that basically admits that the FBI was doing what William Barr keeps telling us it was doing back in 2016, which was: SPYING on the Trump Campaign, and attempting to entrap its people into the commission of some sort of crime.

That’s what it was. It was a counterintelligence operation run out of the FBI, an operation that had been referred to the FBI and authorized by then-CIA Director John Brennan. Furthermore, it was a counterintelligence operation run by the FBI, and about which then-President of the United States Barack Obama was fully aware, since he was given weekly briefings about all counterintelligence operations run by the FBI.

The New York Times just now seems to be catching up on all of this stuff that we’ve all known about for well over a year now. Funny how that works.

Of course, the reason why this particular fake newspaper is publishing this particular story at this particular time is so that it can put its particular spin on it at the behest of the Obama-leftover skunks and snakes who still infest the FBI and DOJ. The reason why this particular story – about the FBI illegally spying on the presidential campaign of the opposition party and trying to entrap its people on foreign soil – at this particular time is because everyone now knows that a) it has become one of the issues DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz is investigating, and b) the Attorney General himself has let it be known that he also has U.S. attorney staff looking into it.

In other words, the Deep State and its mouth organs in the fake news media, led by the New York Times, are panicking and desperately trying to set and sanitize the public narrative in advance of those investigations. The Times, of course, is very careful not to call the FBI’s activities “spying”, portraying the spying operation as one that “shows the level of alarm inside the F.B.I. during a frantic period when the bureau was trying to determine the scope of Russia’s attempts to disrupt the 2016 election”.

Rrrrrriiiiiigggghhhhht. If the FBI were indeed so “alarmed” about efforts by those nasty ol’ Russians to make contacts with members of the Trump campaign, why didn’t the FBI make an appointment to meet with the candidate himself, along with his senior staff, and warn them about those concerns? This simple action that would have given these U.S. citizens a head’s up was apparently beyond the ken of these intrepid law enforcement heroes; thus, they took Brennan’s advice and mounted a highly complex, secret operation that was clearly designed to entrap unsuspecting members of Trump’s team, like George Papadopoulous, who is the subject of this particular Times cover job for the Deep State.

The particular entrapment op in question on this particular Times piece is an episode in which longtime CIA operative Stefan Halper deployed a honey pot code named (I kid you not) Azra Turk to see if she could get Papadopolous to make any incriminating admissions over drinks at a London bar.

Here’s the narrative the Times/FBI skunks put on this story:

The woman had set up the meeting to discuss foreign policy issues. But she was actually a government investigator posing as a research assistant, according to people familiar with the operation. The F.B.I. sent her to London as part of the counterintelligence inquiry opened that summer to better understand the Trump campaign’s links to Russia.

The American government’s affiliation with the woman, who said her name was Azra Turk, is one previously unreported detail of an operation that has become a political flash point in the face of accusations by President Trump and his allies that American law enforcement and intelligence officials spied on his campaign to undermine his electoral chances. Last year, he called it “Spygate.”

So, this CIA operative working for another CIA operative trying to entrap a U.S. citizen on foreign soil is portrayed as a “government investigator posing as a research assistant.” And don’t you love the spin the writers put on the spying operation, that it “has become a political flash point in the face of accusations by President Trump” that he was – guess what? – being SPIED on.  And yes, he did call it “Spygate” – because he was being SPIED on.

My goodness. How do these people sleep at night, knowing that they are nothing mouthpieces for the worst elements of our society?

Disgusting hacks.

That is all.

The Deep State Cabal Remains Very Much Alive

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

If you thought the shutting down of the Mueller Witch Hunt meant that the Deep State Cabal working within the Department of Justice was dead, well, think again. – Last night’s highly-coordinated leak reports by both the New York Times and the Washington Post show that there are still plenty of skunks and snakes operating within the walls of the DOJ. Hell, Robert Mueller himself and Rod Rosenstein both remain DOJ employees. So no one should be surprised at all that both of these mouth organs for the Deep State simultaneously issued highly-misleading reports timed perfectly to undermine Attorney General William Barr as he testifies on Capitol Hill today.

Based solely on unnamed sources “within the Justice Department,” the stories contend that despite his full cooperation with and review of the four-page letter AG Barr initially release summarizing the final Witch Hunt report, Mueller days later sent a letter of his own to the “Justice Department” complaining that Barr’s summary letter “did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance of this office’s work and conclusions.”

Oh. So, what does that word “fully” and those words “context, nature and substance” mean, specifically? Because those particular qualifiers really could mean pretty much anything, positive or negative. Neither the Times nor the Post could be bothered to tell us, despite the supposed existence of their highly-placed “sources.” Because of course they couldn’t. Imparting full, truthful information is not the purpose of these stories; creating a damaging narrative to Barr is the purpose.

Naturally, this inflammatory allegation appears in the first two paragraphs – and in the headlines – of the Times’ and Post’s stories.  But you have to plow way down into the bowels of the stories to find the real story here, which is that Barr is not really who Mueller is irritated with.

It turns out that the real source of Mueller’s frustration is the most likely suspect of all – our fake national news media, exemplified by these two fake newspapers. But you have to get all the way down to paragraphs 10 through 12 of the Post‘s fake story to find that out:

“A day after Mueller sent his letter to Barr, the two men spoke by phone for about 15 minutes, according to law enforcement officials.

In that call, Mueller said he was concerned that media coverage of the obstruction investigation was misguided and creating public misunderstandings about the office’s work, according to Justice Department officials. Mueller did not express similar concerns about the public discussion of the investigation of Russia’s election interference, the officials said. Barr has testified previously he did not know whether Mueller supported his conclusion on obstruction.

When Barr pressed Mueller on whether he thought Barr’s memo to Congress was inaccurate, Mueller said he did not but felt that the media coverage of it was misinterpreting the investigation, officials said.” [Emphasis added]

An attempt led by Juan Guaido, the true President of Venezuela, to free that starving nation from the brutal regime of Nicolas Maduro via a national uprising was taking place all day yesterday. This is a major story with gigantic implications for our country and the world. But the coverage on MSNBC and CNN was wall to wall about this fake Times/Post story.

We have reached the point with our news media now that is roughly equivalent to about 1937 Nazi Germany, a point at which our major news organs are fully under the control of and working for a single political entity and now make literally no attempt at all to hide that fact. This story, this despicable hatchet job by these two fake newspapers, in blatant coordination with Democrats on Capitol Hill and the leftist TV fake news channels is the clearest proof yet that our national news media is virtually 100% fake and can no longer be trusted.

Understand that they are doing everything they can to smear Barr now because they see him as their mortal enemy. With the pending release of the Horowitz Report on FISA Abuse and likely start of prosecutions of the real bad actors to follow, these fake news media outlets know that many of their own reporters and editors, who were active participants in Mueller’s failed coup attempt, may well become defendants themselves. Congressional Democrats and their staffers who also worked hand-in-glove with the Deep State Cabal have similar concerns.

These people are cornered animals, and they will do everything they can to diminish Barr’s standing in the public eye, and have frankly been doing so for weeks already.

Last night was just the latest escalation in their smear campaign. Barr will need to have very thick skin, because there will be many more attacks to come, and they will only get worse.

That is all.

The New York Times Goes Full-on Nazi With Repugnant Netanyahu/Trump Cartoon

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

The New York Times went full-on Nazi propaganda over the weekend when the cartoon below, depicting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a dog being walked by a blind, yarmulke-wearing Donald Trump, was published in its international edition’s op/ed pages:

Image result for new york times anti semitic cartoon

The cartoon is despicably reminiscent of the Nazi propaganda about Jews published during the 1920s and 1930s, which often depicted Jews as sub-human “mongrels,” a term also favored by the Democrat Party-created Ku Klux Klan. Here’s an example from a Nazi publication called Der Sturmer:

Image result for nazi propaganda describing jews as mongrels

After fiddling around for about 24 hours as it received forceful blowback from the public for publishing the atrocious cartoon, the Times staff issued a mealy-mouthed “apology” which referred to the cartoon as “offensive” and blamed its publication on an “error of judgment.”

Let’s understand something about this “error of judgment”: Cartoons don’t just suddenly materialize in the op/ed pages of the New York Times based on an “error of judgment” made by one or two people. That’s if the Times’s own propaganda about itself is to be believed. The Times loves to brag about how anything that appears within its pages has to be “checked and re-checked” over and over again by a long line of checkers before it goes to publication.

Despite all the layoffs of recent years, the New York Times remains a big, corporate organization with multiple layers of staffing and management. Before this disgustingly bigoted cartoon went to print, it most likely had to gain pre-approval by at least half a dozen people with high rankings within that organization.

Thus, the truth about this incident is that it didn’t result from a judgment error at all: It resulted from a presence of leftist bias that permeates every level within the newspaper’s organization. The real problem at the New York Times – and pretty much every other major news outlet in this country – is not a lack of judgment, but a lack of diversity of thought.

The simple fact of the matter is that everyone in the line of decision-making for the Times’s op/ed page is a leftist activist, and as we have seen among the leftist Democrat congressional caucus, antisemitism is running rampant among the American political left. This despicable cartoon was able to go to print because there was no one within the Times’s chain of command who doesn’t march in lock step politically with the Ilhan Omars and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortezes and Rashida Talibs of the world.

This wasn’t an “error of judgment.” This was an inevitable outcome of the organization’s politically-myopic hiring practices.

Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz nailed this matter with a pair of Saturday tweets:

Dershowitz is right to demand an internal investigation by the Times management, but he won’t get it, at least not in any honest form. Because an honest investigation would inevitably reveal the real that the company’s management – and its myopic hiring practices – is in fact the cause of the problem.

That is all.

Creepy Uncle Joe Endorsed by Creepy Porn Lawyer! NYTimes Endorses…Border Wall???

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

He’d have been better off being endorsed by the Boston Bombers. – Talk about your unwanted praise – within a few hours of the posting of his Twitter video announcing his candidacy, Joe Biden received an endorsement from possibly the last guy he’d ever want to get:

That’s right: The Creepy Porn Lawyer has bestowed his formal approval of the candidacy of Creepy Uncle Joe. Hooboy, that’s damn near as good as securing the treasured David Duke endorsement, huh? It’s a safe bet Avenatti won’t be receiving a thank you note from Biden for his generous gesture.

Avenatti is no doubt thinking about what might have been for his own self. Let’s all remember that it was just a few months ago that both MSNBC and CNN were offering the Creepy Porn Lawyer hour upon hour of free air time each week, and insufferable nitwits like CNN’s Brian Stelter and MSNBC’s Chris Matthews openly touting the Porn Shyster for the 2020 Democrat presidential nomination.

But that was all before his wife – or was it his girlfriend, I forget which – accused him of being an abuser and took him to court for unpaid alimony/child support, and before the U.S. Department of Justice indicted him for all sorts of criminal activity. But hey, unlike Paul Manafort, he’s at least out on bail and able to bestow his glowing imprimatur on the actual Democrat front-runner.

Attaboy, Joe, you really got it going now!

Wait: Thomas Friedman endorsed what??? – Ok, you’re going to need to be sitting down for this one.

Thomas Friedman is a long-time columnist for the New York Times, the official mouth-organ of the Democrat Party. This is a newspaper that has for the last three years consistently ridiculed Donald Trump for his promotion of the building of a wall to help contain the invasion taking place at our nation’s southern border with Mexico.

The effite, moneyed liberal snobs who by and large make up the remaining subscriber base for the Times take their cues on all issues from the newspaper, because it makes them feel all smart and stuff to spout quotes to their dinner party guests from Friedman, Paul Krugman and other reliably leftwing columnists the Times employs. Given that, it would be wonderful to be a fly on the wall in this afternoon’s meeting of the paper’s editorial staff, after Friedman appeared on CNN and basically endorsed the Trump wall in an interview with Wolf Blitzer:

 

Friedman had recently visited the border to see the ongoing crisis first-hand. He told Blitzer that the experience left him shocked and convinced that a wall was needed.  Not just any wall, mind you, but one with a “big, smart and compassionate gate”, whatever in the hell that means.

“A big gate, a smart gate and a compassionate gate, I said,” Friedman said. “Wolf, I’m as radically pro-immigration as they come. But it is pretty clear to me that unless we can assure a significant number of Americans that we can control our border, we’re never going to have the proper immigration flow I think we need, we desire and that we actually have a moral responsibility given our history as a nation of immigrants and a refuge for people fleeing persecution.”

Being a writer for the New York Times, Friedman naturally blamed the President for the current refusal by Nancy Pelosi to even negotiate on the issue, because of course he did, using current liberal bogeyman Stephen Miller as a very predictable foil:

“I think the only way is a compromise on this,” he said.” The tragedy and that’s why my column — I think Trump is wasting this crisis. A crisis is a terrible thing to waste. We have a president who actually, when you think about it, Wolf, he has the chops with his base. If he were to sit down, call Nancy Pelosi and say, ‘We’re going up to Camp David. You bring your immigration team, I’ll bring mine. I’ll leave Stephen Miller at home and we will actually sort out a compromise here.”

Man, what are all those liberal, rich, Upper Eastside snobs going to be saying to their guests on this issue now? This is not what they expect from the New York Times, not what they expect at all.

Hilarious.

That is all.
