How the New York Times Fakes News About Ventilators

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

Alex Berenson, himself a former reporter at the New York Times, has a great Twitter thread this morning detailing how his former employer is intentionally mis-informing its readers regarding the real number of ventilators that the nations hospitals will need to deal with the China Virus outbreak.

The content of Berenson’s Twitter thread is detailed below. It should be required reading in every home in America.

Thus, rather than the “million” ventilators that the NYTimes falsely claims will be needed based on faulty data, the maximum number is vastly lower than that. And the real problem, which the Times basically ignores, is that our country likely only has trained staff necessary to safely operate a maximum of about 56,000 such machines.

This is the kind of intentional news-fakery aimed solely at causing harm to President Donald Trump that corrupt media outlets have used to cause needless panic across the United States. It is the kind of irresponsble media behavior for which, when all of the dust has settled from this national crisis, our country simply must find some way to hold corrupt reporters, editors and media executives accountable.

Because if we cannot find some way to adequately police what has become possibly the single most corrupt and irresponsible corporate business segment in our society today, they will only behave even more irresponsibly in the future.

Society Must Find a Way to Hold the Corrupt Media Accountable (Updated)

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

One of the most frustrating aspects of living in the time of Trump is the utterly corrupt nature of 98% of our national news media, and the inability – or outright refusal – of anyone in a position of authority to hold these miscreants accountable for their misdeeds against our society.

Journalism as a profession is pretty much dead in America today, as the corporate-owned media outlets have abandoned all pretense of objectivity and discarded anything resembling what one used to refer to as journalistic ethics in a mad rush to attract clicks to failing websites  and help bring down a President of the United States of whom they do not approve. We live in a situation today in which it has become impossible to trust anything that goes out over the air on cable and broadcast TV networks, or is printed in the pages of the New York Times, Washington Post or the nation’s other big city newspapers.

With the American political left – which essentially owns the country’s journalism schools – having long ago discarded the entire concept of objective truth, citizens are left to fend for themselves in trying to sift through wave after wave of rank disinformation and political narratives in their daily quest to figure out what is really going on. When this happens in the context of elections, it corrupts our political process. When it happens in the context of a national emergency – as it is today – it can costs human lives.

In either event, the absence of a real, working and accountable media establishment serving its intended role as the public’s watchdog represents a true existential threat to our ability to continue to exist as a free society. If we cannot find some way to hold these people to account for their intentional acts to misinform the public, then it’s just a matter of time before the whole thing implodes.

Let’s look at a couple of examples of corrupt journalists engaging in intentional efforts to misinform the public on Monday. First, there is this from Jack Shafer, a corrupt reporter from the reliably leftwing “news” site, Politico:

So, Jerome Adams is an American anesthesiologist and a vice admiral in the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps who currently serves as the Surgeon General of the United States:

Dr. Jerome Adams on coronavirus: Preparedness over panic, facts over fear

Brett Giroir is a four-star admiral in the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, who currently serves as the Assistant Secretary for Health under the Trump administration.

Deborah Birx is an American physician and diplomat who serves as the coronavirus response coordinator for the White House Coronavirus Task Force.” Birx has served as Ambassador-at-Large and United States Global AIDS Coordinator since 2014.

Politico Reporter Takes Cheap Shots at the Outfits of Coronavirus Task Force | News Thud

Ms. Birx is widely hailed as one of the foremost experts in dealing with outbreaks of communicable diseases on the face of the earth. The qualifications and level of respect deserved by all three of these experts in their fields are obvious to anyone with a smidgen of a brain and personal integrity. But we are not talking about such a person here – we’re talking about a corrupt journalist, a guy who is employed by the similarly corrupt jackasses who own and run Politico.

Mr. Shafer’s tweets are obviously a malicious effort to smear these three experts and, more importantly from his perspective, minimize and reduce public confidence in their expertise and ability to deal with the coronavirus crisis. Think of it: This clown just reduced Ms. Birx’s entire career down to a snarky fashion statement.

If Michelle Obama had been wearing that exact same outfit, Shafer would have no doubt been blown away by how, like, totes awesome she looks or something. You know?

And if a conservative reporter working for Fox News had made such a snarky remark about the former First Lady he would have been pilloried by all the corrupt leftist journalists who hang out and snark on Twitter 24 hours a day. But because Shafer is a liberal who works for a reliably Democrat-shilling website, you can hear the crickets chirping.

Then there was this from Mara Gay, a member of the New York Times editorial board:

Well, golly, if the New York Times really did have a recording of that call, then Ms. Gay surely heard the rest of the President’s statement to the governors, which was:

“We will be backing you, but try getting it yourselves. Point of sales, much better, much more direct if you can get it yourself.”

Ms. Gay, incidentally, is the same nitwit who, in an appearance with Brian Williams on MSNBC last week, claimed that if Mike Bloomberg had taken the $500 million that he spent on TV ads and just distributed it to the American people, he could have given all of us “a million dollars.” The actual number, of course, is $1.53. This is the level of abject stupidity the New York Times allows onto its editorial board. And let’s be honest, the very fact that Brian Williams, a proven pathological liar, still has a job in the media proves the profession has zero accountability.

But in this instance, Ms. Gay goes from mere stupidity to outright mendacity, intentionally abbreviating the perfectly good advice the President conveyed to the nation’s governors in a blatant effort to convince her mindless Twitter followers that he is instead an uncaring beast. Again, if anyone on the Board at Fox News did something like this, they would be mercilessly smeared by the liberal outrage gang on Twitter, and likely fired. But because Ms. Gay is a liberal hack who works for the fellow liberal hacks who own and run the New York Times, she will pay no price for her overt attempt to smear the President of the United States.

This utter and complete lack of accountability for intentional efforts by corrupt journalists to sow panic and fear in our society is not acceptable, especially when people working in every other profession in America are held accountable for their own actions. The first amendment is not a license to lie, not a license to abuse the public trust.

If those in positions of authority at these and many other media outlets continue to refuse to hold their people accountable for their acts of outright mendacity, then either the government or society at large will at some point decide to do it for them. History tells us very clearly that, whenever any society reaches that particular point, things get very, very ugly indeed.

Someone in the corporate media had better wake up, and soon.

Update: The President answers Ms. Gay’s despicable misrepresentation of his remarks in this morning’s coronavirus update:

That is all.

Enemies of the People: Corrupt Media Can’t Decide if Russia is Colluding with Trump or Sanders

The Evening Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

At his rally in Las Vegas Friday afternoon, President Donald Trump taunted the New York Times for its effort to revive the whole Russia Collusion nonsense one more time:

 

No kidding – it’s a point I made in this morning’s Campaign Update, in fact. Of course, Putin would rather have the outright communist installed in the White House.

Oh, and hey, guess what? According to the laughably corrupt hacks at the Washington Post, Putin is actually helping The Commie, not Trump:

C’mon, all you sleazy liberal hacks – which is it? In all seriousness, what we have here is a classic case of split agendas colliding in the Deep State echo chamber: They can’t decide who to try to kill – Trump or The Commie? So, first they leak yesterday’s nonsense about Trump to the Times, and when the initial polling data on that one comes back that literally nobody outside of the DC echo chamber believes any of this crap anymore, they say, hey, let’s go after Bernie instead!, and they get their toadies at the Post to dummy up this story attacking The Commie.

Here’s the real danger in all of this: There have now been so many utterly false media reports tossed around about Russian interference in U.S. elections that the corrupt media outlets and our despicably corrupt intelligence agencies have lost all credibility. God help us if Putin ever does make a serious effort to interfere in a presidential election, because if he does, nobody in the public at large will believe the reporting about it.

At the end of the day, the Democrats and their media toadies have done Putin’s work for him. And who know? Perhaps that was their real goal all along.

After all, they really are enemies of the people.

That is all.

Tapper Debunks NYTimes Russia Collusion Narrative-Setter

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

Well, you don’t see this very often – the two fakest corrupt news outlets in America fighting over a narrative. It’s going to drive their Democrat masters crazy.

Not even 24 hours after the New York Times puts out a despicably fake piece trying to revive the whole Russia Collusion narrative, CNN’s Fake Jake Tapper, of all people, issues a thread on Twitter debunking the whole thing. Here is the text of Tapper’s tweets:

A national security official I know and trust pushes back on the way the briefing/ODNI story is being told, and others with firsthand knowledge agree with his assessment.

2/ “What’s been articulated in the news is that the intelligence community has concluded that the Russians are trying to help Trump again. But the intelligence doesn’t say that,” the official says…

3/ “The problem is Shelby” — Pierson, the elections threats executive in the intelligence community — “said they developed a preference for Trump. A more reasonable interpretation of the intelligence is not that they have a preference, it’s a step short of that….

4/ “It’s more that they understand the president is someone they can work with, he’s a dealmaker. But not that they prefer him over Sanders or Buttigieg or anyone else. So it may have been mischaracterized by Shelby” at the House Intel briefing last week…

5/ “And by the way,” the official says, “both Democrats and Republicans were challenging this at the briefing.” Then there’s the matter of the tense meeting between President Trump and erstwhile Acting Director of National Intelligence Admiral Maguire…

6/ “The President was upset that he had to hear about an intelligence conclusion from a Member of the House Republicans rather than from the intelligence community. So he was out of joint with Maguire on that process.”

7/ None of this disputes that Trump desires to replace those who have Intel expertise with partisan loyalists, or dismisses the larger issues and concerns about Russia and how the president seeks help from abroad. Just that there seems to be more to this particular story.

8/ ALSO none of this disputes that the Russians (and others) are attempting to interfere in the US election again.

Tapper, obviously disappointed to be getting this narrative-debunking information from his apparently legitimate source, naturally feels the need to add those last two tweets to try to keep the fantasy alive, at least to some extent. But it is obvious that what we really have here is a case where the New York Times intentionally and with malice aforethought mis-portrayed what was actually conveyed in this briefing in order to try to damage President Trump’s reputation.

Libel, plain and simple.

 

That is all.

Dems Have a Terrible Debate, So We’re Back to Russia Collusion One More Time

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

In terror the Boy ran toward the village shouting “Wolf! Wolf!” But though the Villagers heard the cry, they did not run to help him as they had before. “He cannot fool us again,” they said. – Aesop’s Fables, from “The Boy Who Cried Wolf.”

It’s like clockwork, folks. – A truly, desperately bad event for the Democrat Party invariably results in a new false narrative coming out of the Party’s toadies in our corrupt news media.

The Party had a disastrous debate on Wednesday, during which everyone beat Mini-Mike Bloomberg to shreds and nobody laid a glove on President Donald Trump, leaving The Commie standing as the clear front-runner, and presto-change-o, we are back to Russia Collusion one more time!

On Thursday, the fake journalists at the corrupt New York Times published yet another narrative-setter piece for their Deep State masters, this one designed to support the Democrat Party’s plan to destroy voter confidence in the 2020 election results in advance. In case you’ve forgotten, the Democrats kicked off this particular plan way back in May of last year, as it became obvious that Quid Pro Joe was too impaired to become the Party’s standard bearer.

On May 6, Nancy Pelosi told reporters that “we cannot accept a second term…for Donald Trump…if we are going to be faithful to our democracy and to the Constitution of the United States. And that is just a fact.” Thus, she was already telegraphing her Party’s intent to destroy faith in the 2020 elections and to refuse to accept their results. That theme has been an ever-present part of Democrat Party/media messaging since that time, and was the main theme in the idiotic impeachment effort that held our country hostage for five long months.

Also participating in this neverending coup d’etat effort is our intelligence community, as we well know. The Times piece in question focuses on a briefing that outgoing Acting Director of National Intelligence (DNI) Joseph Maguire held on Capitol Hill recently, in which he and a whole passel of his loyal lieutenants informed congress of their belief that – get this – the “Russians” favor President Trump’s re-election over communist Bernie Sanders, and are already working to help Mr. Trump’s cause.

Oh yeah, sure, that’s totally believable. You betcha.

Nowhere in the Times piece will you find a single smidgen of detail about exactly what it is that Maguire claims the “Russians” (why doesn’t he just say it’s the boogeyman instead – it would have equal credibility at this point) are doing to “help” the Trump campaign. That would be because the “Russians” aren’t really doing anything in any organized fashion to do that, outside of the kinds of stuff they have been doing to meddle in our elections for the last 100 years.

The thought that these “Russians” would favor the election of Donald Trump over the eternally grifting Hillary Clinton in 2016 wasn’t absurd enough for these people. Now, we are supposed to believe that they are helping Trump to defeat an out-and-out communist ideologue.

Think about it: Vladimir Putin, more than anyone else on the face of the earth, fully understands the society-destroying impacts of socialist/communist ideology. He lived it. Putin – if our corrupt intelligence agencies are to be believed – wants to destroy and dominate the U.S. and other Western democracies. What better way to achieve that than by helping a freaking communist get elected President of the United States? The whole charade here is an absolute farce.

The opening paragraph of the piece is greatest part of it:

Intelligence officials warned House lawmakers last week that Russia was interfering in the 2020 campaign to try to get President Trump re-elected, five people familiar with the matter said, a disclosure to Congress that angered Mr. Trump, who complained that Democrats would use it against him.

Note the reference to “five people familiar with the matter”, none of whom are of course identified. Did the Times really talk to “five people” who had first-hand knowledge of this briefing? There is no way to know. But saying “five people” rather than “a person” is the Times way of trying to give the piece more credibility.

Then there’s my favorite part, the one about how the “disclosure to Congress that angered Mr. Trump, who complained that Democrats would use it against him.”

Um, doesn’t the very existence of this report in the New York Times clearly demonstrate that the President was right? Didn’t he have every right to be angered that Maguire, a freaking temp in his job, chose to spread this crap as a parting gift to the Administration as he prances out the door, no doubt about to get a big book deal or a contract as a contributor on CNN or MSNBC?

Now, do you understand why the President is intent on putting someone he can actually trust  into the DNI position? What Maguire – and his aide Shelby Pierson, whom the Times claims delivered the report to the members of congress – did is an outright betrayal, an outrage that should be punished by their immediate firings.

But the damage is done, and the Democrat/media narrative is set: Bereft of any other viable alternatives or viable presidential candidates to really challenge President Trump, the Axis of Disinformation goes back to pushing the Russia Collusion BS one more time. They will now poll-test and focus group public reactions to the new narrative, and if they think it has any legs, they will continue to pound it day after day right up until November 3. Because this is what these people do, and this is who they are.

Yes, it’s despicable. Yes, it’s depraved. Yes, it’s disgusting and demented and disloyal to our nation and destructive to our Republic. But, really, after the last four years, did you expect anything else?

That is all.

About Those 70 Obama Holdovers Cut From the NSC…

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

Tired of all this WINNING yet? – Both the NASDAQ and S&P 500 set new record highs on Monday, as the Trump economy just keeps WINNING for Americans and their 401(k)’s. The Dow was also up, but not quite at record levels reached a few weeks ago, before  the Coronavirus scare. And it’s only going to get better, as early trading futures indicate all indexes will open at higher levels today.

About those “70 Obama holdovers” cut from the NSC… – Twitter and other social media outlets went nuts on Monday over a slightly misleading report issued by the Washington Examiner. The report itself, filed by Paul Bedard, is accurate, but requires some close reading to understand what is really being communicated.

Unfortunately, as is so often the case, it was the headline that misled most readers and caused the story to go viral on social media, which of course was the goal of the misleading headline. That headline reads as follows:

Bigger than Vindman: Trump scrubs 70 Obama holdovers from NSC

BOOM, right? Well, sort of. Coming as the report did on a Monday morning, barely 48 hours after the removal of everyone named Vindman from the NSC staff, the headline is obviously designed to create the impression that dozens of disloyal Obama holdovers on the NSC staff were removed over the weekend. And that was how the story was portrayed by repeaters throughout social media and conservative media like Breitbart.

The trouble is, that is not what happened.

The misleading part of the story itself comes not in what the author said, but in what he left out of the text. While it is apparently accurate that 70 NSC employees, most of whom were indeed holdovers from the Obama era, have been removed from the NSC staff, nowhere in Bedard’s story does he mention that this transition has been a slow and steady process that has taken place since current National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien took over that job last fall.

There was no replay of Nixon’s “Saturday Night Massacre” at the NSC over the weekend; indeed, I can find no evidence that a single member of the NSC staff was fired or reassigned on Saturday or Sunday. However, it is apparently true that O’Brien, working on orders from President Trump, has succeeded in ridding the White House of 70 NSC deep state functionaries since he came into office several months ago. It is also true that O’Brien has publicly stated that this process of weeding out the bad guys is still ongoing and could end up with the removal of up to half of the bloated NSC staff of 200 that President Trump inherited from Barack Obama His Own Self.

Clear?

There is still much reason to celebrate here, as O’Brien finally does the job that General Mike Flynn, Trump’s original appointment to be the National Security Advisor, would have done had he not been entrapped and framed by Obama FBI holdovers Peter Strzok and Joe Pientka. Better late than never.

And the good news keeps coming. On Monday, former U.S. Attorney Joe DiGenova told an interviewer that he has been told by “a very senior U.S. government policy official” that the “Anonymous” author who wrote the infamous 2018 New York Times column claiming that he and “like-minded” colleagues working in the Trump Administration were actively undermining the President’s agenda has been identified and will be fired this week.

In a report this morning on Fox’s “Mornings With Maria,” author Lee Smith said that two fairly senior officials, Secretary of Defense for Policy John Rood and Special Representative for Iran Brian Hook, have also been identified as disloyal staff working to undermine administration policy, and both would likely be removed this week. Rood served in several posts during the George W. Bush administration, including a stint as an analyst at the CIA. Hook is also a former Bushie who served in the State Department in the waning days of that administration.

Whether either man is the “Anonymous” author is unclear at this time.

The good news here is this: Three full years into his Administration, President Trump finally has a National Security Advisor who is fully on his team and helping him to achieve his goals. What we are seeing O’Brien accomplish today is one of the main reasons why the Obama people were so panicked about having a Trump loyalist in Mike Flynn as the NSA – because, as we have seen, Obama had packed the NSC staff with deep state operatives who served as the nexus of all the serial leaking that so damaged this presidency in its early years.

You may have noticed that the frequency of leaking from the White House has dramatically diminished since O’Brien took the job.

And O’Brien isn’t done yet.

WINNING.

That is all.

The New York Times Sets the Final, Desperate Impeachment Deep State Narrative

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

The New York Times makes a final desperate play in its role as bullhorn for the Deep State. – Ok, so, this was inevitable: After the White House defense team devastated the Democrats’ impeachment scam with a simple recitation of the actual facts at hand on Saturday, the corrupt hacks at the New York Times publish yet another narrative-setter on behalf of their political party of choice.

The writers of the piece are Hillary Clinton tool Maggie Haberman and Obama hack Michael Schmidt, which is really pretty much all you need to know as far as the slant the piece takes, and the utter lack of any shred of journalistic integrity it involves. As is typical of this kind Deep State support news-fakery, the piece names not a single source, relying instead only on “multiple people,” a fact that is not revealed until the fourth paragraph.

Oh, yeah, and the fact that no one – not one single person – at the New York Times has actually seen the manuscript, written by former national security advisor John Bolton, is not revealed until … well, it’s not revealed anywhere in the piece at all. The piece contains no quotes from the alleged Bolton manuscript, because the Times has not seen the book.

The Times does reveal that the manuscript was submitted to the White House for pre-clearance by the National Security Council, which we know is filled with Deep State Obama plants, and which has been a leak factory since Day One of this administration. The NSC also provided both the fake “whistleblower” – Eric Ciaramella – and his buddy Alexander Vindman to serve as the catalysts for the impeachment scam.

Bolton’s spokesperson claims that single copy submitted to the White House is the one and only copy the publisher has distributed to anyone:

Hey, let’s all guess where these leaks originate from. When you learn that all publication clearances by the NSC are signed off on by Yevgeny Vindman, the twin brother of Alexander Vindman, it isn’t that hard, is it?

So, what does the Bolton book claim? From the Times’ piece:

President Trump told his national security adviser in August that he wanted to continue freezing $391 million in security assistance to Ukraine until officials there helped with investigations into Democrats including the Bidens, according to an unpublished manuscript by the former adviser, John R. Bolton.

The president’s statement as described by Mr. Bolton could undercut a key element of his impeachment defense: that the holdup in aid was separate from Mr. Trump’s requests that Ukraine announce investigations into his perceived enemies, including former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and his son Hunter Biden, who had worked for a Ukrainian energy firm while his father was in office.

Take away the inflammatory rhetoric and Democrat-narrative framing predictably added in by Haberman and Schmidt, and you have the President telling Bolton exactly what his legal team told the Senate: That the President was doing his job, waiting on releasing the aid to Ukraine – perfectly legal under his constitutional authority and the law – until he was sure that the new Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelensky was a good actor who was going to work to investigate and punish corruption by American actors in his country.

Remember that we have Joe Biden on video, admitting to literally bribing the previous Ukrainian government in 2016 to fire the prosecutor who was investigating his son’s company. The Democrats’ entire impeachment scam hinges on the argument that Biden is somehow exempt from any investigation into his outright thuggery while serving as Vice President simply because he now happens to be a candidate for the party’s presidential nomination. Sorry, but that cat don’t flush.

Back to the NSC: It is very likely that the Times’ corrupt reporters have been in possession of their information for several weeks, and waited until this moment to release this report, right before the Trump team is about to resume its defense arguments in the Senate trial. How can we be fairly sure of this? Because of this little-noticed Daily Mail story from January 17, title ” Donald Trump’s top Russia expert on National Security Council is ‘escorted off the White House grounds amid a security investigation’:

President Donald Trump’s top Russia expert on the National Security Counsel is reportedly on leave pending a security investigation.

Andrew Peek, the NSC’s senior director for European and Russian affairs, was escorted from the White House grounds on Friday, two people familiar with the matter told Bloomberg.

Peek had been in the NSC role for just two months, after most recently working as a deputy assistant secretary of state with responsibility for Iran and Iraq.

He replaced Tim Morrison, who left the position after testifying in the House impeachment inquiry.

What do you suppose that “security investigation” involved? If you answered “probably leaks to Haberman and Schmidt,” you win the gold medal.

Naturally, both House and Senate Democrats immediately – within bare moments – responded to the Times report on their Twitter accounts with strikingly similar talking points. Why, it’s almost as if they were working in coordination with Haberman and Schmidt. Because they were.

The President responded a few hours later with tweets of his own:

and

This narrative-setting “report” from the Times creates the echo chamber the rest of the media will use throughout the next two days. Every on-air “analysis” from Democrat media toadies on CNN, MSNBC and the broadcast networks will be viewed through the prism of this story. This story provides all of the corrupt reporters the pretext for ignoring the arguments presented by the President’s defense team, and now will be used to hammer the RINO Usual Suspects – Murkowski, Collins, Romney, etc. – into voting with the senate Democrats to prolong the trial.

And it’s not just the RINOs: The Times also has an op/ed piece this morning advocating that Chief Justice John Roberts issue subpoenas for witnesses under his own authority. The piece is written by two leftist Georgetown professors and 83 year-old former Oklahoma congressman Mickey Edwards, another RINO who presumably needed a pay day.

These pressure points are the intention, of course, the result of the carefully-coordinated plan between the Democrats and their activists in our fake news media.

It’s all very transparent to anyone paying close attention. Unfortunately, very few Americans – and very few of the Senators – have really been paying close attention.

That is all.

Another Comey Investigation, Another Chance for William Barr to Finally Act

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

Yet another narrative-setter from the NYTimes’s deep state mouthpiece hack, Adam Goldman. – Honestly, this is getting to be almost as frequent as the stock market closing at new record highs, something that also happened yet again on Thursday.

Goldman posted a piece yesterday designed to set the narrative for the Times’s Deep State managers, this time in favor of our National Teenage Drama Queen, former FBI Director James Comey. Goldman gets down to his cover business right from the start, with this headline:

Justice Dept. Investigating Years-Old Leaks and Appears Focused on Comey

Oh, hey, it’s just more leaks by Comey – and hey, we all have known for years Comey was a serial leaker – and the leaks in question might have involved classified information, but they are “years-old”, so what’s the big deal here? Right? Right.

But then Goldman really gets down to business with his sub-head, which is an even more blatantly-slanted statement designed to convince readers to condemn not the criminal – Comey – but the investigators:

An inquiry into years-old disclosures of classified information is highly unusual and leaves law enforcement officials open to accusations of politicizing their work.

So, that’s a two-for-one deal, not only sucking up to the Drama Queen, but also consistent with the corrupt news media’s ongoing efforts to smear Attorney General William Barr. Goldman has achieved all of that, and we haven’t even gotten into the text of his piece. That’s gold star stuff right there.

Let’s go to the first two paragraphs, of the piece, which first lay out the bare bones of what is actually taking place, and then quickly manages to also smear President Donald Trump:

WASHINGTON — Federal prosecutors in Washington are investigating a years-old leak of classified information about a Russian intelligence document, and they appear to be focusing on whether the former F.B.I. director James B. Comey illegally provided details to reporters, according to people familiar with the inquiry.

The case is the second time the Justice Department has investigated leaks potentially involving Mr. Comey, a frequent target of President Trump, who has repeatedly called him a “leaker.” Mr. Trump recently suggested without evidence that Mr. Comey should be prosecuted for “unlawful conduct” and spend years in prison.

There’s that favorite corrupt media phrase, “without evidence,” which is only used against Republicans and always manages to ignore the mountain of information in the public domain supporting the President’s statement. But hey, that’s what corrupt reporters at the New York Times are trained to do, so Goldman might get a promotion for checking off so many Deep State narrative piece boxes before we even get to his third paragraph.

You have to go to paragraph 4 to get to the essence of what the investigators are really looking into:

Law enforcement officials are scrutinizing at least two news articles about the F.B.I. and Mr. Comey, published in The New York Times and The Washington Post in 2017, that mentioned the Russian government document, according to the people familiar with the investigation. Hackers working for Dutch intelligence officials obtained the document and provided it to the F.B.I., and both its existence and the collection of it were highly classified secrets, the people said.

So, hey, Comey was leaking “highly classified secrets” to the New York Times (shocking!) and the Washington Post, the two major print mouth organs for the Democrat Party and the Deep State, which are largely, but not entirely, the same thing. Given everything we have found out about these three specific players over the last four years, this is akin to informing the Times readership that water is indeed wet.

So, what is the actual, exact nature of this “Russian intelligence document,” you ask? Well, you naturally have to go deep into bowels of the report where few of the Times short attention span readers will bother to tread to discover that it is actually nothing more than an official Democrat National Committee email sent by then-DNC Chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz to one Leonard Benardo, an official with the Open Society Foundations, a group funded by … wait for it … George Soros.

Oh.:

The latest investigation involves material that Dutch intelligence operatives siphoned off Russian computers and provided to the United States government. The information included a Russian analysis of what appeared to be an email exchange during the 2016 presidential campaign between Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Democrat of Florida who was also the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee at the time, and Leonard Benardo, an official with the Open Society Foundations, a democracy-promoting organization whose founder, George Soros, has long been a target of the far right.

Note the sympathetic nod to Soros at the end, which attempts to portray this despicable Democracy-destroying monster as some sort of victim. This is how depraved Goldman really is.

The next paragraph is a real doozy, which is why Goldman and his corrupt editors buried it so deeply:

In the email, Ms. Wasserman Schultz suggested that then-Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch would make sure that Mrs. Clinton would not be prosecuted in the email case. Both Ms. Wasserman Schultz and Mr. Benardo have denied being in contact, suggesting the document was meant to be Russian disinformation.

So, gee, here we have the Chairman of the DNC telling a radical anti-American Soros operative that Loretta Lynch was putting in the fix on the Clinton email investigation. Gosh, imagine that.

But Goldman attempts to come to Lynch’s rescue two paragraphs later, working very hard to imply that the official DNC email is just a Russian fake:

Whether the document was fake remains an open question. But American officials at the time did not believe that Ms. Lynch would hinder the Clinton email investigation, and neither Ms. Wasserman Schultz nor Mr. Benardo had any inside information about it. Still, if the Russians had released the information after the inquiry was closed, it could have tainted the outcome, hurt public confidence in the Justice Department and sowed discord.

That first sentence is an outright fabrication. Many experts have examined the raft of DNC emails that have been made public since 2016, and not a single one of those emails has been found to have been fake. That is a disgraceful fake news sentence. Thus, totally expected from a Deep State toady at the New York Times.

Then there’s the sentence about “American officials” at the time not believing that Lynch would hinder the Clinton fake investigation by the FBI: Who was a higher “official” within the Democrat Party than the freaking Chairman of the DNC, the person who is outright telling a Soros lackey that the AG was in fact fixing the FBI’s fake investigation?

The piece just gets more disgustingly biased from there, but you can read the rest for yourselves if you care to do so.

Bottom line: All of this information most likely came from Comey and his lawyers, who are probably the “sources” for Goldman. Here we have Comey under investigation one more time for his serial leaking, a pattern of behavior that William Barr’s DOJ already decided to give the Drama Queen a pass on when he was actually the subject of a criminal referral last year by IG Michael Horowitz.

There is no real doubt that Comey is guilty; the only question is whether or not Barr will ever decide to do anything about it. This is a crime for which hundreds of millions of ordinary Americans would spend time in prison for committing. Why should Jim Comey be any different? Of course, we all know the answer to that by now.

So, once again, William Barr is presented with a prime opportunity to prove that he is indeed dedicated to ending the two-tiered system of justice that Attorneys General of the 21st century have fully implemented in our country. This very, very low-hanging fruit for an AG with good intent.

I wish I had more confidence that Barr would to finally, at long last, pick that low-hanging fruit and do something real.

That is all.

Trump is Completely Exposing the Democrats and the Media

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

[Note: The following piece is from contributor Gregg Updike. I hope you enjoy his thoughts on the situation with Iran, and how President Trump is exposing the seditious nature of the Democrat Party and its corrupt media toadies – I know I did.]

While it is great that President Trump has recently taken out a couple of head honchos in the Middle East, can anyone doubt that their #2s (in every sense of the word) won’t just take over and continue their fight?  Had Hitler been successfully assassinated in July 1944, Goering would have taken over, then Himmler…

Point being, just because America took out these leaders, it does not mean Iran and ISIS will stack their bats and quit the field.  This means we need to be even more vigilant against reprisals.  I am in no way saying that Trump is wrong in what he is doing, I’m just saying these “foreign entanglements”, and their consequences, are far from over.  I only hope and pray for our president’s safety, and that he soon removes all our assets (targets) including our embassies from that entire region; let the various factions pound each other into the sand.  ​​

Now that we are oil independent, turn the keys over to Israel and let them have at it; let them either win outright with our tacit support, or continue with the tit-for-tat fighting that has been going on there forever.  I don’t care which route Israel takes, and neither should most Americans.  It would be nice, however, if a greater number of Americans of Jewish descent would actually support Trump and his efforts to defeat Israel’s ancient enemies abroad and renounce and work to defeat Anti-Semitic Democratic Politicians here rather than voting lockstep Democrat for whatever reason.​

Once we are out of the region, our doctrine should be: we will flatten any country that causes us harm – period, end of story, with no “nation building/rebuilding”.  Let Europe, without the US propping up NATO, fend for itself against the threats from the Middle East, Russia, and China.  And finally, we must get out of the UN and get the UN out of America.​​

Apart from the transformation of the courts, and the draining of the swamp via Barr and Durham, Trump’s greatest contribution to America will be the total exposure of the media and the Democratic Party as a cabal of anti-American seditionists.  Sooner or later there will be a Bastille Day of sorts, and the domestic enemies of America as founded will be dealt with.  They will be easy to find as they are doing a wonderful job of exposing themselves for all to see.

They are effectively targeting themselves for destruction by openly rooting for our enemies and against America/Trump. Yet these “journalists” and other “experts” are supposed to be among the best and brightest from American institutions of higher learning; how myopic they all are.  In the interim, Trump is driving them insane with their TDS and making them more and more irrelevant.​​

The MSM is, and has been, working hand in hand with America’s domestic enemies to diminish and destroy our constitution, amendment by amendment for decades.  What makes them think the 1st Amendment will survive to protect them if the “Fundamental Change” that the Obama types want to bring to America ever comes to fruition?​

On the foreign side, the NY Times had a reporter named Walter Duranty espousing Stalin’s communist propaganda from Moscow pre WWII, CNN had an embed in Middle East during Gulf War 1 who refused to be debriefed by the Pentagon upon his return after the first war.  And before and during the second Iraq War, CNN had “exclusive” coverage from their Baghdad “correspondent” who was reporting to the world only exactly what Saddam Hussein and Baghdad Bob allowed him to say.

I also remember how many, if not most MSM TV anchors refused to wear US Flag lapel pins stating they didn’t want to be seen rooting for one side or the other – just the facts, uh, sure, right.  Presidents Wilson (D), and FDR (D) most certainly censored the press during their terms, so there is precedent on the regulation of “Free” (Political) Speech.​

History has shown when there is a “Fundamental Change” i.e. revolution, or invasion of a country, or other takeover, the first people purged are the “intelligentsia” including professors of higher learning and the press… ​​

I’m a capable and productive person who is very adaptable and has worked many blue collar jobs and I can survive in almost any political environment by what I bring to the table.  I don’t believe any of these singularly specialized propagandists, masquerading as “experts” or “journalists” are capable of doing anything but being keyboard warriors, and ignorant social justice and environmental agitators.

They will be the first ones eliminated if and when true socialism/fascism/communism comes to America. The constitution as we know it will be gone, and the country will be ruled by a dictator.  No dictator would ever tolerate any such fifth column activity; it will be brutally put down just as sure as the sun comes up every day.​​

I only hope the “useful idiots” that the left has used for their evil anti-American purpose will someday soon wise up and abandon their (ultimately petty) crusades for their own sake.  Of the 328 or so million people in the US, only about 8-10% are the agitators, the loudmouths, the troublemakers to varying degrees; still that can be as many as ten million people young or old enough to actually be active in all the protests/riots that are sure to come this November when Trump wins a second term in a landslide, and the House flips to the GOP.

I truly believe that the other 90+ percent of the country – if not the world – are fundamentally good people who would just love to be able to live their lives in peaceful coexistence without all this conflict and drama. It’s the 10 percenters that must be defeated and ultimately eliminated for peace to prevail.​

The president has shown great acumen in his ability to be ahead of the curve and has been very successful in blunting and exposing the left’s agenda(s).  His second term, starting with the first sign of violence after the election, must be the direct, forceful and complete stopping of all the paid professional protesters/rioters.  Then he must go after all the domestic and foreign money people funding this Anti-American revolution/coup.

The presidential oath states the president’s first obligation is to protect and defend America and its’ Constitution from all foreign and domestic enemies.  All of the people and entities (including and especially the MSM/SM) who have been engaged in this three plus year coup, Logan Act Violations, aiding and abetting election interference (that was actually done by the Democrats), illegally spying on any American, or allowing/authorizing the same, and who promote the subsequent violence should be charged under the RICO Act.

[End]
