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.

The New York Times Proves Again to be a Vile and Despicable Rag

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

What in the hell is a “bias crime”?  – Believe it or not, the New York Times just got a little worse than it already was in terms of the debasement of the English language. In its fake reporting on the latest in a recent string of despicable anti-Semitic attacks on New York City’s Jewish population, the Times manages to publish 500 words without ever even mentioning that the assailant, who stabbed 5 people in the home of a Hasidic rabbi with a machete, was reportedly a non-white male. [Update: Indeed, the suspect who has been arrested is a black male.]

But that’s not the bad part – it’s just standard operating procedure. Here’s the part where the Times takes yet another step down the road towards an Orwellian 1984:

No one has been charged in that attack, and officials have not determined that it was a bias crime.

What in the hell, you might ask, is a “bias crime”? Well, that is what anyone with half a lick of sense would call a “hate crime” – which this clearly was – but which fake journalists working at the nation’s corrupt media outlets want you to believe was something else. See, in the world of the lunatic political left, it is not possible for a non-white person to “hate” – presumably, they can only “bias”, as if that word were an action verb.

Besides, the anti-Semitic left’s thinking goes, the victims were “ultra-orthodox Jews”, so presumably they had it coming, right? Note the use of that term, “ultra-orthodox Jews”, way up in the piece’s sub-head. That’s done intentionally to describe the VICTIMS of this crime as being somehow not normal, and thus help to justify the heinous attack in the readers’ minds.

That term, by the way, is used to describe “fundamentalist Jews who live in segregated communities in parts of North America, Europe and Israel.” Note that you never see the Times or other corrupt “news” outlets using similar dog-whistling language to describe fundamentalist Muslims who segregate themselves into similar communities so they can live under Sharia law, many of them right there in New York City, where the Muslim population literally fields its own illegal police force, complete with police-style squad cars and flashing lights, with zero repercussions from the city’s Marxist mayor or city council.

But hey, this is the “news” outlet that brought us the “1619 Project,” an organized effort to pollute Americans’ minds with the completely false notion that the real founding of “America” came when the first African slave landed on North American soil in the year 1619, and that literally every facet of our nation’s founding and growth had its very basis in that sad event.

It is the corrupt “news” outlet that, in 2008, assigned dozens of reporters to dig up dirt on Sarah Palin after she was chosen to be the GOP sacrificial lamb to serve as the despicable John McCain’s running mate. The same corrupt “news” outlet that never lifted a finger to attempt to vet the background of Barack Hussein Obama, whose education and medical records remain sealed to this day due to media negligence. It is the same corrupt “news” outlet that proudly placed Sarah Jeong, a notorious anti-white racist, on its editorial board in the summer of 2018.

The New York Times is the same corrupt “news” outlet that spent three solid years pretending the Steele Dossier contained a shred of truth in its campaign to support the Democrat/media “Russia Collusion” narrative. The New York Times is the very same corrupt “news” outlet that actually reported on Ukraine’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election on behalf of the Pantsuit Princess, and on Obama Administration concerns about the impropriety of Hunter and Joe Biden’s influence peddling in that country, and which now pretends that neither event ever happened because that’s what the Democrat/media narrative demands.

The New York Times is the same corrupt “news” outlet that viciously attacked Republicans for wanting to call witnesses in the Senate trial of Bill Clinton in 1998, and now viciously attacks Republicans for wanting to employ the exact same process that was used in the Clinton trial for the upcoming Senate trial of President Trump.

You seriously could never make this stuff up. Not in a million years. But hey, it’s the New York Times, so if you expected anything else, you just haven’t been paying attention.

Trump Campaign Banishes Bloomberg News – But Why Not CNN?

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

[Note: Today’s Campaign Update will be on a delayed morning schedule from November 30 through  December 4.]

Good move. Now do CNN and the New York Times and the Washington Post and… – Trump Campaign Chairman Brad Parscale announced on Monday that the campaign would no longer be offering press credentials to anyone representing Bloomberg News. That inevitable move – labeled as “surprising” by many corrupt media outlets – comes after an internal memo written by Bloomberg News editor-in-chief John Micklethwait announced that the outlet would continue its “tradition of not investigating Mike (and his family and foundation) and we will extend the same policy to his rivals in the Democratic primaries.”

So, Bloomberg News desperately wants to be considered a “news” outlet, yet its own Editor-in-Chief proudly boasts to his staff that it is in fact a campaign tool for its owner and his opponents in the Democrat presidential primary. In other words, Bloomberg is just another CNN, NYTimes, WaPo, MSNBC and on and on and on. The sad part of that is that Bloomberg actually does a fine job of business reporting, and if it had just stuck to that mission, this reputational black eye would have never come about.

The only really “surprising” thing about this move is that the Trump Campaign’s action hasn’t been followed – or frankly, led – by a similar action being taken by the White House press team. Why should a self-admitted propaganda outlet for a Democrat Party that has changed its mission from governing  to attempting a never-ending coup d’etat effort be allowed on the grounds of the White House? It makes no sense, just as it makes no sense that Jim Acosta still holds a press pass and John Brennan still maintains his security clearance. You might as well be wheeling a Trojan Horse through the White House gates.

Here is the text of Parscale’s press release announcing the campaign’s decision:

The decision by Bloomberg News to formalize preferential reporting policies is troubling and wrong.

Bloomberg News has declared that they won’t investigate their boss or his Democrat competitors, many of whom are current holders of high office, but will continue critical reporting on President Trump. As President Trump’s campaign, we are accustomed to unfair reporting practices, but most news organizations don’t announce their biases so publicly. Presented with this new policy from Bloomberg News, our campaign was forced to determine how to proceed.

Since they have declared their bias openly, the Trump Campaign will no longer credential representatives of Bloomberg News for rallies or other campaign events. We will determine whether to engage with individual reporters or answer inquiries from Bloomberg News on a case-by-case basis. This will remain the policy of the Trump campaign until Bloomberg News publicly rescinds its decision.

Here is the key sentence from that release: “As President Trump’s campaign, we are accustomed to unfair reporting practices, but most news organizations don’t announce their biases so publicly.” While it is true that Bloomberg’s internal memo is an especially egregious admission of journalistic bias, the reality is that we have seen similar admissions of toadying to the Democrat daily narrative by CNN, the New York Times and other major outlets.  Sure, the policies haven’t been “formalized,” but how does John Micklethwait differ from multiple leaked memos we’ve seen from Dean Baquet at the Times and Jeff Zucker at CNN?

It’s exactly the same thing.

So yeah, the singling out of Bloomberg for this form of banishment from access to the President’s re-election campaign is a little surprising, but only because similar action wasn’t taken across a broad spectrum of utterly corrupt propaganda outlets.

A pox on all their houses.

That is all.

Michael Wolff Laments a Magazine Industry that is Dying of Self-Inflicted Wounds

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

[Note: Today’s Campaign Update will be on a delayed morning schedule from November 30 through  December 4.]

Great, but don’t go making promises you can’t keep. – Political fantasy writer Michael Wolff, the author of the anti-Trump fantasy “Fire and Fury,” promised in a Friday interview with Spectator USA that he plans to say no more about President Donald Trump.

“Every magazine I have ever worked for, and I have worked for them all, is dead or will die shortly,” he explained. “For another thing, Donald Trump is the one consuming subject, sucking all views and opinions into his void, and on this issue I have nothing left to say.”

“Still, even with the collapse of so many journalistic enterprises, many of my former colleagues still go on at great and constant unpaid length on social media or, scrambling for a pay-per-appearance contract, as desperately willing pundits on cable television. Why? People are afraid, it seems, to say nothing,” Wolff proclaimed. “I’m looking forward to trying.”

Ok, so, what this most likely means is the spinner of fables has a new book coming out early next year and has begun his promotional tour early. But really, who gives a damn? He’s a fantasy writer, and not a very good one.

What caught my eye about his comments, though, was this part: “Every magazine I have ever worked for, and I have worked for them all, is dead or will die shortly.” Bingo. And why is that?

Well, we had a wonderful example of why that’s the case just this past weekend, didn’t we? That would be the incident with near-dead Newsweek publishing a false report by Jessica Kwong that the President planned to spend his Thanksgiving Day “tweeting” and “golfing” when in fact he was in the process of making a wearying trip to Afghanistan for a surprise visit with the U.S. troops there.

Kwong was fired as a result, but the name of the specific reporter who filed this specific piece is not even relevant anymore, since her false report was just another in an unending procession of this kind of intentionally false report over the last four years, all designed to damage the President’s reputation. It is seriously as if every newspaper, magazine and TV outlet in America is in a competition to see who among them can abandon all pretense to journalistic ethics the most quickly and abhorrently.

The disgraceful hackery taking place at Newsweek is just a symptom of an industry on its death bed. Newsweek is the magazine version of the New York Times and the newspaper business, or CNN and the TV “news” industry. They are all dying along with the profession of journalism generally

The journalist hacks like to blame the slow-motion death of their industry on the Internet, and the sucking up of all the advertising revenues by Google and Facebook. But that’s a cop-out, an attempt to deflect the blame away from their own failings.

The print industry awoke to the threat posed by the digital space a quarter of a century ago. It is incumbent upon any business that becomes faced with a sudden existential threat to adapt and work harder to improve its product offering and become more competitive.

But by and large, newspapers and magazines reacted not by becoming more competitive and improving their product, but by repeatedly laying people off, cutting their product to shreds and raising prices. With every subsequent cut and price increase, the quality of the product grew worse.

Any sense of journalistic ethics was gradually tossed to the winds along with the jobs of researchers, copy editors and other quality control functions. Thus, we end up with today’s situation at most of these publications with a single person who was poorly-educated in some J-school to do one of these jobs trying to do all of them in a mad rush to get something, anything posted out on the website that might attract some clicks.

And that’s how you end up with a Jessica Kwong – although the name makes no real difference at all because it could have been any one of thousands of people doing the exact same thing every day – becoming the sacrificial lamb at Newsweek for doing nothing more than following that fake publication’s current business model.

The magazine industry is in fact dying a death by slow-motion suicide and Michael Wolff, a guy who made his living by penning highly-sensationalized fantasies in order to maximize clicks, is in fact one of the major culprits. If he can now really make himself “say nothing” on any subject as promised in that interview, he’d be doing his industry – and everyone else – a huge favor.

That is all.

The New York Times and Newsweek Deliver Thanksgiving Disgraces

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

[Note: Today’s Campaign Update will be on a delayed morning schedule from November 30 through  December 4.]

Ok, so, what else would we expect from the New York Times, right? Right. Still, the headline that ran with an op/ed piece by the corrupt newspaper’s inept economist, Paul Krugman, betrayed a desperate effort to plumb new depths of journalistic malfeasance by the newspaper of fake record:

Image

I couldn’t tell you what Krugman says in his latest bit of lame-brainery because it’s behind the Times’s firewall, and we here at Today’s Campaign Update are not in the habit of lending monetary support to the faking of America’s news. But let’s be honest: Nothing Krugman has to say is worth noting anyway. After all, he’s the circus clown who predicted that the election of Donald Trump to the presidency would bring about the total collapse of the U.S. economy, a collapse from which America would “never recover.”

D’oh!

It’s fair to note that Krugman and the Times were not the only corrupt fake journalist/fake news outlet to disgrace themselves on Thanksgiving. Jessica Kwong, a fake reporter for the on-life-support Newsweek – which no longer can afford to exist as a real magazine but still fakes the news in the digital space – issued a tweet early on Thanksgiving that said:

Image

But later in the day, news broke that President Trump had in fact flown out to Afghanistan in the wee hours of the morning to make a surprise visit and spend Thanksgiving with U.S. military personnel at Bagram Air Field. There he not only dined with the troops, he actually served them their dinner, laughed and joked with them and just generally enjoyed a rare chance to be with real Americans and the troops he loves and supports:

 

This early afternoon revelation led to the fake, corrupt journalist Kwong issuing this “correction”:

An “honest mistake.” Yeah, sure, right, uh-huh. That’s an interesting way to describe going to press with a completely false story with zero sourcing or journalistic process in just another corrupt effort to do harm to the President’s reputation. In today’s 100% dishonest, corrupt media, there is no such thing as an “honest mistake.”

Kwong’s humiliation led to the creation of this sterling Twitter meme:

Image

To be honest, I don’t remember a time during my 60+ years on earth when Newsweek was a reputable news source, but I suppose it might have been the case before I was born. In any event, it and the New York Times have certainly surrendered all pretense over the last four years.

That is all.

New York Times Attempt to Craft a Narrative for the Coup Cabal Fails Miserably

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

If you pay close attention to the fake reporting of the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN and a few other Deep State fake news organizations, you can easily see how the FBI/CIA/State Department goons who choreographed the three year “Russia Collusion” fantasy play are trying to manipulate the public narrative in advance of the release of the Horowitz Report and the slow-rolling Barr/Durham investigation.

A piece published by the Times on Saturday serves as a prime example. The report, written by Adam Goldman and William Rashbaum, two of the most reliable deep state mouthpieces in the media, is chock-full of dozens of references to anonymous sources, all of whom most likely helped organize and lead the plot to fix the 2016 election for the Pantsuit Princess, and then to mount a coup d’etat on American soil. Although the reporters dutifully attempt to carefully craft the narrative here as a defense of treasonous snakes like Peter Strzok, Andrew McCabe, James Comey and other high officials who participated in this long-running betrayal of the United States, it fails miserably to do so.

What we end up with instead is a very long-winded indictment of these snakes in a piece that contains a series of revelations that will damage the reputations and defense efforts of everyone involved.

Let’s begin with the startling admission contained in this paragraph (I will add emphasis throughout the excerpts from the NY Times piece):

In his review, Mr. Durham has asked witnesses about the role of Christopher Steele, a former intelligence official from Britain who was hired to research Mr. Trump’s ties to Russia by a firm that was in turn financed by Democrats. Law enforcement officials used some of the information Mr. Steele compiled into a now-infamous dossier to obtain a secret wiretap on a Trump campaign adviser, Carter Page, whom they suspected was an agent of Russia.

So, here is the New York Times, the mouth organ of the Deep State narrative, admitting – albeit deep in the bowels of a very long piece – that the Steele Dossier was indeed funded by “Democrats.” The Times of course cannot go so far as to be specific about which “Democrats” – i.e., the Coughing Crook Campaign and the DNC – were involved in funding the effort, because that much truth in one article would cause most of its upper East Side readership to faint dead away with the vapors.

But putting that little nugget of truth into its pages is a stark admission that the Clinton Campaign literally paid millions of dollars to foreign agents to help them in an American election, an admission that most Times readers have likely never seen before.

Then there’s the lead paragraph:

Federal prosecutors reviewing the origins of the Russia investigation have asked witnesses pointed questions about any anti-Trump bias among former F.B.I. officials who are frequent targets of President Trump and about the earliest steps they took in the Russia inquiry, according to former officials and other people familiar with the review.

Note the use of the words “federal prosecutors” rather than “investigators,” because words are important here. This distinction, the first two words of a very long piece, clearly implies that the Times has been made aware by their Deep State buddies that Barr and Durham are not only pursuing actual indictments and prosecutions of some of their ranks, but have brought in multiple additional federal prosecutors to assist in the effort. This is a key shift in the fake media narrative, which has previously talked about Barr and Durham being just a couple of loose cannons mounting a rogue investigation in order to curry favor with President Trump.

The second paragraph is also quite interesting:

The prosecutors, led by John H. Durham, the United States attorney in Connecticut, have interviewed about two dozen former and current F.B.I. officials, the people said. Two former senior F.B.I. agents are assisting with the review, the people said.

Oh. Who might those two dozen “current and former FBI officials” be? We’ll have to wait to find out. But the more interesting bit of information here is that “two former senior FBI agents are assisting with the review.” Who might those agents be?

Well, about five paragraphs further into the piece, we find out who they are NOT:

Mr. Durham has yet to interview all the F.B.I. officials who played key roles in opening the Russian investigation in the summer of 2016, the people familiar with the review said. He has not spoken with Peter Strzok, a former top counterintelligence official who opened the inquiry; the former director James B. Comey or his deputy, Andrew G. McCabe; or James A. Baker, then the bureau’s general counsel.

So, Barr/Durham and their fellow prosecutors have interviewed dozens of current and former FBI officials, but they have yet to speak with four of the main suspects who we all know from public information already released were key leaders of the cabal. This would be common practice if those four are in fact targets of the investigation – the process would be to gather all the independent information possible to build a strong case prior to interviewing the actual targets. Very encouraging for those who desire to see actual justice done to at least some of the myriad bad actors in this matter.

Much later on in the piece, we find out who one of the “two former senior FBI agents” happens to be:

The former official said he was reassured by the presence of John C. Eckenrode, one of the former senior F.B.I. agents assisting Mr. Durham. Like Mr. Durham, who investigated C.I.A. torture of detainees overseas, Mr. Eckenrode is also familiar with high-stakes political inquiries.

How is Mr. Eckenrode famliar with “high-stakes political inquiries”? Way back in 2003-04, he worked for special counsel Patrick Fitzgerald on the Valerie Plame investigation. Some will view this association with a previous out-of-control special counsel as damning of Barr/Durham’s real intentions here, but the Fizgerald investigation would have involved literally dozens of FBI agents who were simply carrying out their orders in their daily jobs. When conducting a high-profile, controversial investigation such as this one, it would be perfectly natural for any U.S. Attorney to try to bring in assistants who have prior such experience.

Towards the end, the Times writers do their best to provide cover for their Deep State sources:

For example, the former official compared the F.B.I.’s handling of its two investigations related to Mr. Trump and his 2016 opponent, Hillary Clinton. Agents overtly investigated Mrs. Clinton’s use of a private email server but kept secret their counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign. If the F.B.I. had been trying to bolster Mrs. Clinton’s candidacy and hurt Mr. Trump’s, they could have buried the email investigation or taken more overt steps in the Russia inquiry.

This is, of course, abject nonsense. The Clinton email scandal had been in the news for many months, beginning way back in mid-2015. The corrupt and preening Comey, always concerned more about his public image than about the actual pursuit of justice, had no choice but to be seen as pursuing that investigation in a very public way. The fact that the fix was in for the Fainting Felon came with the release of internal FBI documents proving that Comey and Strzok drafted Clinton’s exoneration memo in May, 2016, two full months before they even bothered to interview her.

But this tired old narrative is all the Comeys and Strzoks have left to them, and the Times dutifully plays along, rolling it out there for the consumption of their willfully-deluded reader base.

The very publication of this narrative piece demonstrates the concern the coup plotters really are feeling about the pending release of the Horowitz Report and the ongoing conduct of the Barr/Durham investigation. It’s an effort – a miserably failed effort – to get out ahead of the release of the Horowitz Report, and to build a public narrative in defense of the bad actors as Barr and Durham advance towards seeking indictments. As the Times piece itself states in the lead sentence to its third paragraph:

The number of interviews shows that Mr. Durham’s review is further along than previously known.

Slowly but surely, the walls are closing in on the coup plotters.

Dem Debate: Clipping Coupons, Stealing Your Money, and Confiscating Guns

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

I didn’t watch last night’s Democrat debate, because I’m sane and would prefer to stay that way. Besides, there was baseball on TV. But I did follow the festivities in real time on social media, and quickly realized I didn’t miss anything that wasn’t entirely predictable.

For example, there was this lovely moment, when the two near-octogenarians in the race, perhaps surprised to see each other still alive and kicking, gave each other a big hug:

Image may contain: 1 person, suit

Awwww, isn’t that cute? It’s like that big family reunion back in 1963 when both of your great-grandpas showed up together for the last time.

Speaking of Quid Pro Joe, he got the very predicable special handling from CNN hack Anderson Cooper, who prefaced a question about his bullying of the Ukraine in order to protect is ne’er-do-well son with “You have been falsely accused by the White House…”, and bumbling ‘Ol Joe was barely able to take it from there. If Cooper could’ve taken him by the hand and walked him through an answer, you can be sure he would have done so.

At other times, though, the Unfrozen Caveman Senator didn’t fare quite so well. Check out this clip, when he’s asked by some chick about the Marxist “wealth tax” scheme being touted by The Commie and Fauxcahontas:

That’s right: He literally said “clipping coupons in the stock market.” He apparently thinks Nabisco often runs “2 for 1 specials” on purchases of its stock, and General Motors offers 5 year, 0 percent financing from time to time.

In case you couldn’t understand the rest of his gibberish answer, here’s everything he said, verbatim:

“No, look, er, ah,um, demonizing wealth people, what I’ve talked about is how you get things done. And the way to get things done is take a look at the tax code right now.  The idea, we have to start rewarding work not just wealth. I would eliminate the capital gains tax [rapid blinking and scrunch face occurs here] that i..I w, I would raise the capital gains tax to the highest l.., rate of 39.5 percent, would double it. Because guess what? Why in God’s name should someone who’s clipping coupons in the stock market make, in fact, pay lower tax rate than someone who in fact is, uh, like I said, is, th, uh,  a school teacher and a fireman.”

Got that? So, all you stock market coupon clippers better put those scissors away and go out and get a job teaching or putting out fires. Because that’s the world Quid Pro Joe lives in these days.

In another highlight, Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, who remains the only actual interesting person on the Democrat stage, ripped into the two main drivers of today’s fake news media, CNN and the New York Times. Hilariously, those two fake news outlets also happened to be the hosts of last night’s debate. Here’s the clip:

For those who still like to read things, here is the key passage:

“Not only that, but, the New York Times and CNN have also smeared veterans like myself for calling for an end to this regime change war. Just two days ago, the New York Times put out an article saying that I’m a Russian asset and an Assad apologist and all these different smears. This morning, a CNN commentator said on national television that I’m an asset of Russia. Completely despicable.”

Boom. Don’t hear language like that about our fake news media coming from any of the other Democrats on that stage, mainly because the New York Times and CNN treat them all with kid gloves.

But maybe the best part came when Irish Bob O’Rourke appeared to question the political courage of Navy veteran Pete Buttigieg, and that did not go well for the Texas dilettante:

Oof.

In an interview released earlier on Tuesday, O’Rourke also signaled that his pending failure to win the Democrat nomination would likely end his amazingly mediocre political career, saying “I cannot fathom a scenario where I would run for public office again if I’m not the nominee.”

All of his former fantasy lovers at various Texas and national fake media outlets would be heartbroken, but those words fall on most Texans like manna from heaven.

Note to Beto: You aren’t winning anything in this race, given that your campaign has been the most laughable, miserable, epic failure this year has seen. So, please, keep your word, for once.

To sum up the rest: Julian Castro told a bunch of lies about immigration, Fauxcahontas refused again to admit she is going to raise taxes on the middle class, Kamala Harris bumbled and stumbled all over herself, Andrew Yang barely got any airtime, Cory Booker continued sucking up to Creepy Uncle Joe, Tom Steyer was on the stage but nobody knew why, or even who in the hell he was, and everyone went after Fauxcahontas at one time or another because she’s the real frontrunner in the race.

But in the most important news of the evening, the Nationals beat the Cardinals to sweep to their first-ever National League pennant.

That is all.

P.S.: As I was typing this piece up this morning, President Donald Trump summed last night’s festivities up perfectly:

Wednesday Was a No-Good, Terrible, Very Bad Day for the Deep State Dems

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

Wednesday may have been the worst day the Democrat Party has had during the Trump presidency. – Just as it appeared to some that the Deep State Dems might be gaining a little traction in their neverending coup d’etat, they suffered a series a series of self-inflicted wounds and bombs lobbed by the President into their midst that had them scrambling to pretend they’re actually going to work on real legislation by the end of the day.

That pretense is just that, of course, as the Democrat Party has totally sacrificed itself at the altar of its ultra-radical social media Outrage Mob and its pea-brained organ grinder monkey leader, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez.

There will be no serious effort to pass meaningful legislation for the rest of this year, as San Fran Nan’s gang of Munchkin committee chairmen focus their efforts solely on staging this fake impeachment “investigation” that is just another bit of DC Kabuki Theater, and a massive one at that.

Pictured above (l to r): Eliot Engel, Adam Schiff and Jerrold Nadler.

Let’s just go through a few of the disasters the Democrats suffered throughout the day on Wednesday:

Pompeo decimates Democrat case for subpoenas. – At a press conference in Rome, Italy, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo reiterates his firm opposition to allowing any of State Department professionals to be forced to become a party to the Democrats’ carnival midway freak show, and lays out a detailed constitutional case for taking that stance. The Outrage Mob went into full outrage mode, because of course they did, but nobody real cared.

Pelosi and Schiff hold a disastrous press conference. – Tweedle-Dee and Tweedle-Dum followed shortly thereafter with possibly the most dishonest press event since Baghdad Bob went on TV to assure the world that all was well in Iraq, promising a fake impeachment process that would be “fair to the President,” and with Pelosi’s newly-restructured face trying and failing to summon tears about how she has a big case of the sads about it all. The unintentionally-hilarious presser ends with San Fran Nan begging in vain to convince one member of the Democrat toady press to ask her a question – any question at all would have done – about something other than impeachment.

Schiff revealed to have coordinated with the fake whistleblower before the complaint was even written. – The New York Times published a piece in which it claimed that Schiff had in fact begun coordinating with the fake whistleblower even before the fake whistleblower’s complaint had been drafted. Which means that this entire charade is being run on the exact same playbook the Democrat/media complex used to smear Brett Kavanaugh a year ago, given that that all began with Dianne Feinstein coordinating efforts with false witness Christine Blasey Ford months before Ford “came forward” with her false allegations. Schiff naturally denied the allegation in the Times’s report, but no matter: Schiff has been caught publicly in so many fabrications now that he has no credibility with any non-media American, and the likely truth of his mendacity has been planted in the public’s mind.

Trump owns them both in three different press events. – The President, meanwhile, held three separate press availabilties at the White House during the day, eviscerating the Democrats’ false case at every turn. Having been handed the New York Times piece about Schiff’s mendacity just before the third presser, he took it a step further, contending that Schiff actually helped write the complaint. While the corrupt media immediately went into full scoffing and tut-tutting mode over that statement, how many dozens of times have we seen the President make a statement like this and watch it turn out to be 100% true days, weeks, or months later?

Ukraine President Zelensky confirms he has never even met Rudy Giuliani. – This of course puts the lie to various media reports that have claimed that Giuliani had met face-to-face with Zelensky even before the July call with President Trump that supposedly germinated the fake whistleblower complaint.

Details of recent Barr/Durham visit to Italy become public. – While rumors and a few reports about this recent trip had begun to float around late last week, the details and their implications did not fully spill out into the mainstream and social media worlds until Wednesday.

State Department IG, after requesting “emergency hearing” with House Intel Committee staff, delivers folder full of four-month old newspaper clippings. – News of this event, possibly the greatest trolling event in federal government history, landed on Twitter early in the evening thanks to the reporting of the Daily Caller’s Amber Athey:

Brutal, indeed.

What Wednesday demonstrated more than anything else is that literally everything the Democrats do or say is a lie. Everything is just more theater to try to influence public opinion from a political party that has succeeded in purging itself of actual substance.

They will keep doubling down on the neverending coup d’etat not because it’s likely to be a successful strategy, but because they literally have no idea what else to do at this point.

If the Democrat Party were a brain, it would be that of a one-trick Donkey.
