The Deep State Legacy of Rod Rosenstein

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

The legacy of Rod Rosenstein is a complicated one, and one that, as we will discuss later in this piece, is far from through being compiled.

Some conspiracy theorists on Twitter and some fringe websites like to portray Rosenstein as an American hero, a Machiavellian schemer who makes Machiavelli himself look like a novice in his tireless efforts to protect President Donald Trump as he out-conspiracies the Deep State Cabal that operated within the DOJ and FBI throughout 2016 and 2017. In this scenario, every action Rosenstein has taken since coming into the Trump Administration as Deputy Attorney General in early 2017 has been part of an incredibly complex “Slow Walker” plan schemed up by Donald Trump even before the 2016 elections, a plan that Rosenstein has spent the last two-plus years carrying out.

It’s all a lot of “stuff and nonsense,” to quote the late, great James J. Kilpatrick. Rod Rosenstein is a bad guy. A very, very bad guy, and unlike operation Slow Walker, there is a ton of very public evidence to support that assessment.

For starters, this is a guy who in one week in May 2017 wrote a three-page memo to President Trump detailing myriad reasons why then-FBI Director and current Teen Drama Queen James Comey needed to be fired, and then the very next week turned around and appointed his pal and Comey’s best friend, Robert Mueller, to become a “special counsel” partly to investigate whether Comey’s firing amounted to “obstruction of justice.” The Rosenstein-as-hero people want you to believe that was all a highly patriotic act schemed up by Trump himself.

Holy crap.

Rosenstein is a guy who wrote not one, but two scoping memos for Mueller that allowed the “special counsel” to basically function as a completely out-of-control Witch Hunt, a completely open-ended  “investigation” with no limitations or legal side bars. Rosenstein then spent the next year and a half working feverishly to ensure that neither of those two memos could be made public. We haven’t seen them to this day.

Rosenstein is a guy who actively pushed the idea of having President Trump removed from office under the scope of the 25th Amendment, and at one point volunteered to wear a wire to meetings with the President in an effort to entrap him in some bad act, according to at least two people who have testified under oath to congress. The pushers of Operation Slow Walker want you to believe that Trump planned that, too.

In the Operation Slow Walker scheme, even Jeff Sessions’ idiotic move to recuse himself and set Rosenstein up as the de facto Attorney General was all just a part of Trump’s “5D Chess” conspiracy to entrap the Deep State. I’m not kidding. In that role as de facto Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein sat by and did nothing as Robert Mueller hired a staff of 19 leftwing Clinton/Obama hacks. Rosenstein then sat by as Mueller essentially functioned as Chief of the American Gestapo, allowing his activist staff to order the FBI to knock down doors in the middle of the night and terrorize elderly American citizens who had yet to be accused of any crime.

Rosenstein sat idly by as Mueller and his staff bullied, threatened and destroyed the financial life of a real American hero, General Mike Flynn, who had spent his entire adult life serving his country. Rosenstein, the hero of Operation Slow Walker, sat idly by as Mueller and his band of Gestapo thugs convinced a judge to sentence Paul Manafort – a near-70 year-old man accused of financial crimes having zero to do with “Russia Collusion” – to month after month of solitary confinement.

Rosenstein sad idly by as his buddy Mueller and his thugs deployed no fewer than 37 FBI agents armed with kevlar vests, automatic weapons, tear gas and even – I’m not kidding here – TANKS in the wee hours of the morning to arrest a thin, frail senior citizen named Roger Stone, terrorizing Stone’s wife who suffers from frail health in the process. Stone’s alleged “crime”? Having communications via email with Julian Assange. Not kidding.

This is the “hero” of Operation Slow Walker. What a load of horse manure.

Rosenstein was able to operate with impunity while the useless, neutered Jeff Sessions was in the AG’s office. It is crystal clear that, had Sessions remained in that office, the Mueller operation would still be going today with no end in sight. But Sessions’ resignation (he was really fired, let’s be honest) put a leash on Rosenstein and Mueller when Matthew Whitaker assumed the office as Acting AG. That leash got tugged hard when William Barr was named as the permanent AG.

Rosenstein’s “resignation” was intentionally timed to take place after the issuance of the Mueller report, so that he would be there to support Barr’s assessment of it, and before the issuance of the coming FISA Abuse report from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz. Barr needs Rosenstein as a witness in any criminal cases that arise from the Horowitz report – Rosenstein was also the signatory on one of the fraudulent FISA applications – something Rosenstein could not do if he were still employed at DOJ.

Coincidentally, Rosenstein’s final day in office will also come two years to the week after he wrote the 3-page memo recommending Comey’s firing.

This guy’s no hero, he’s just another deep state skunk, like his pals Comey and Mueller. The public evidence indicates he was a willing and active, leading participant in an effort to effect a coup d’etat on American soil, an effort that thankfully failed. Once Barr was named Attorney General, Rosenstein likely made a deal to save his own skin, and is probably now working as a cooperating witness in order to save his pension.

Rod Rosenstein was the architect and enabler of the Mueller Witch Hunt, nothing less, nothing more. Our government is well rid of him, but we will most likely be seeing and hearing much more from him in the future in an entirely different role.

Ta ta for now, Rod.

Rod Rosenstein, Architect of the Mueller Witch Hunt, Formally Resigns

Rod Rosenstein submitted his formal resignation letter to President Donald Trump today. Here’s the full letter:

So, the architect, the enabler of the two-year national nightmare that was the Mueller Witch Hunt will be out of office effective May 11. It will be up to Attorney General William Barr to clean up the mess Mr. Rosenstein leaves behind.

Good riddance.

SPOTLIGHT: The Week Spygate Started To Unravel

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

I’m old enough to remember when the fake news media treated the Fake Trump Dossier as if it were the holy grail. – And yet, by the end of this week just past, old Watergate fossil Bob Woodward had joined the New York Times, Michael Isikoff and other media luminaries in an obvious coordinated effort to start covering their butts as the thing begins to unravel:

This was just one of many events from the week just past that indicate the tables are beginning to turn on the Deep State Cabal that worked within DOJ and the FBI to fix the 2016 election and tried to effect a coup d’etat to remove President Trump from office after that initial effort had failed. Here are some other significant revelations that took place throughout the week.

Florida Republican Matt Gaetz, appearing on Judge Jeanine Piro’s show, had this gem:

We should all keep in mind that many people in our national news media were not just innocent bystanders in the conspiracy to fix the 2016 election: They were in fact active participants and must be held accountable just as the Comeys and Brennans and Strzoks must be held to account for their actions.

Then we had this, from Tom Fitton at Judicial Watch:

The Weiner laptop is not the real story here – anyone paying attention already knew about all of that. The real story is that the FBI found many of the emails the Pantsuit Princess deleted from her illegal server on computers in Barack Obama’s executive office. Just one more item of evidence pointing the finger at the very top.

Keep in mind that the spying operation on the Trump campaign – “Crossfire Hurricane” – was mounted as a counterintelligence operation at the FBI, and Barack Obama received a weekly briefing on all counterintelligence issues. He was no innocent bystander in all of this, either.

Next up, two GOP senators reveal that the spying went on long after the election was over.:

We already knew all of this but the important aspect here is that the letter from Grassley and Johnson kicks off a formal discovery process in the two committees they chair.

And then this happened…

At the end of the week, it was revealed that the wife of former Mike Pence Chief of Staff Josh Pitcock actually worked for FBI Super Duper Hotshot Peter Strzok throughout the entire spying operation and well into the days of the Mueller Witch Hunt.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.:

So what does it all mean? It means that one of the big functions of the Mueller operation was to provide an umbrella with which to cover up all the bad stuff that was done at the FBI and DOJ by the Obama people. Now that the Witch Hunt has closed up shop, the cover umbrella is no longer functional, and the real information about the real bad actors is slowly starting to trickle out into the public domain.

The situation for all the bad actors is further complicated now by the sudden realization that it is looking as if William Barr is a real Attorney General who is focused on doing his actual job, and not just another DC establishment hack who will do his best to cover all of this up. We must hope that appearance is not deceiving.

This was a big, important week, folks. Expect more big and important weeks to follow.

That is all.

Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson Lob a Bombshell over to William Barr

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

Well, that’s kind of a big deal.  – The fake news media and Teen Drama Queen James Comey will no doubt squeal that they shouldn’t use that bad word, “spying”, but Senators Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson disagree. Grassley, who chairs the Senate Finance Committee and Johnson, Chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, sent a joint letter over to Attorney General William Barr on Thursday in which they detail their concerns that the Obama-era Deep State Cabal within the DOJ and FBI continued to spy on the Trump operation after it had failed to fix the election for the Pantsuit Princess.

The letter cites texts between FBI Super-Duper Agent Peter Strzok and his illicit lover, FBI lawyer Lisa Page as evidence that efforts to entrap Trump officials in situations that could be construed as being improper was still ongoing weeks after the election had come and gone. The letter also notes the vast array of illegal leaks being published by the fake news media during the transition, leaks containing information that almost surely came from someone within DOJ or the FBI.  Here’s a key passage:

Additionally, we note that a number of news outlets have reported sensitive information related to the investigation into alleged Russian collusion with the Trump campaign. Those reports have revealed sensitive information focusing on the FBI sending informants to meet withTrump advisors; a warrant to surveil Carter Page; and the United Kingdom signal intelligence agency briefing former CIA Director John Brennan on alleged communications between Trump’s campaign and Russian officials, among other things. 11 Notably, the Justice Department Inspector General’s review of the Clinton investigation found “profound concerns about the volume and extent of unauthorized media contacts by FBI personnel…” 12 It appears the same happened during the Russia investigation. Leaks to the media about ongoing investigations undermine the ability of investigators to properly investigate. Moreover, sensitive leaks to the media while members of congress performing constitutionally mandated oversight are kept in the dark is unacceptable.

 

The senators, both of whose committees have oversight over the activities of the DOJ, go on to order Barr to work with their staff to schedule a joint hearing in the near future to provide testimony to the committees about the following:

  1. Please describe the nature and extent of your review of FBI surveillance of theTrump Campaign, President-elect Trump’s transition staff, Vice Presidentelect Pence’s transition staff, President Trump’s staff, and Vice PresidentPence’s staff, including your efforts to determine whether that surveillance was adequately predicated.
  2. How many counter-intelligence briefings were provided to the Trump and Pence transition staffs prior to Inauguration Day? Please list the dates, all agencies involved, and each official that represented those agencies at the briefings.
  3. Many of the FBI employees involved in these activities are no longer employed by the federal government. How will your review obtain information needed from these individuals?

Now, this is all a bit of well-orchestrated Washington, DC kabuki theater, of course. Anyone who has been paying attention to the information that has come to light about the Obama Administrations efforts to spy on the Trump camp has been aware for well over a year that those efforts continued not only through the transition, but that Obama holdovers at DOJ and the FBI kept it all going well after Trump’s inauguration.

Hell, that’s essentially what the entire Mueller Witch Hunt was all about. At the end of the day, it was little more than a Deep State-sanctioned intelligence-gathering operation designed to entrap Trump officials and provide the Democrats with both a roadmap to impeachment and opposition research to use during the 2020 campaign.

But now that Mueller’s operation has folded up shop, it’s finally time for the tables to turn. The letter from Grassley and Johnson demanding a hearing is just a part of the process necessary to start building the public record and case against the real law-breakers. You can be sure that Barr is well aware of the Obama conspiracy to fix the 2016 election and then find a way to depose Trump after he was elected. He was aware of all of that when he wrote his famous 2018 piece slamming the legitimacy of the entire special counsel process, in fact.

So this is not necessarily a “bombshell” for Barr or the few among us who have been paying attention to the case being built against the real bad actors, but for the 99.9% of the population who have been letting the fake news media distract them with all those fake news shiny objects, it is. This letter is a big deal, because it is the trigger that formally kicks off a process of revealing real information to the public through these two key committees.

That’s how this game ultimately works in Washington: Fake justice is very loud, quick and in-your-face on the 24-hour cable channels; but the wheels of real justice turn slowly, inexorably, and take place mainly behind the scenes.

Chris Wallace’s Latest Sunday Disgrace Shows Growing Leftward Shift of Fox News

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

This is Fox News. – No, really, it actually is Fox News Sunday, the flagship Sunday morning program for the supposed “balanced” news channel. Hosted by Chris Wallace, son of long-time CBS reporter Mike Wallace, this program is fast becoming a bell cow signaling a general shift in Fox’s news reporting from “fair, balanced and unafraid” to “liberal, tilted and aspiring to be CNN.”

This Sunday’s program showed Wallace at his very worst: bomastic, combative, argumentative, constantly interrupting and shrill.  Well, that was how he behaved when he interviewed Trump White House counsel Rudy Giuliani, anyway, barely allowing the former New York Mayor to get three words out before jumping in to “correct” him. Here’s the clip:

That’s not an interview, it’s disgusting hackery by a biased interviewer focused on not allowing the interviewee to get his message out. It’s like something out of the prime time CNN or MSNBC lineups, something you’d expect from Chris Matthews or Chris Cuomo.

Next up for Wallace on Fox News Sunday was Bug-eyed Adam Schiff, the pathological liar congressman from California who has been running around for two years claiming he’s seen clear proof of “Russia Collusion”, but refusing to say what that “proof” actually is. So, you’re thinking, wow, this clown’s coming on Fox News, he’s gonna get destroyed, right?

Wrong.

Watch as intrepid Fox host Chris Cuo…er…Matth…er… Wallace poses softball question after softball question, and then sits back in his chair and lets Schiff drone on and on and on without any attempt to interrupt him or correct the false record he’s creating:

I have in the past praised Wallace for his even-handedness. Frankly, I believe his conduct of third debate between Trump and the Pantsuit Princess, focusing on issues of substance rather than Trump’s personal failings as the two previous debate moderators had done, played a big role in the clinching the election for President Trump. Wallace can be a fine, real journalist when he wants to. But his conduct on Fox News Sunday recently and his commentary on other programs during the week show a decided leftward trend.

So, there you go, folks, there is today’s Fox News: biased, timid and totally afraid to do its job. Oh, the prime time line up remains a bastion of conservative advocacy – for now, anyway. But the daytime and weekend news programs are all trending liberal/left, and another year or two of that trend will leave this cable channel looking no different than its competition.

Robert Mueller, media/Democrat hero, is suddenly Robert Mueller, media/Democrat target. – What a difference a few weeks make. As long as Robert Mueller was functioning as America’s Gestapo Chief, er, “Special Counsel” and trying to execute a slow-rolling coup d’etat on President Donald Trump, he was the media/Democrat establishment’s Upright Man, a man with unassailable character, a man who was going to save the country from the BAD ORANGE MAN in the White House.

For almost two solid years, this guy was completely off-limits to reporters muck-raking for a story. For all those months while his Witch Hunt was ongoing, no “journalist” working at any mainstream fake news media outlet would have ever dreamed – not in a million years – to try to accost the Upright Man With Unassailable Character as he walked around in public.

Think about it: In all that time, from May 17, 2017 when he was appointed until March 22, 2019, when he folded up his tent and formally handed his final report to Attorney General William Barr, do you remember seeing a single reporter attempt to ask this guy a single question? Yeah, neither do I.

But now, his coup d’etat effort having failed with a real Attorney General suddenly occupying that key office, Robert Mueller finds himself fair game, even a target for the media and their Democrat masters. He found that out the hard way yesterday as he emerged from church on Easter Sunday, and found a despicable fake reporter and camera guy running up to shout questions at him as he tried to get into his car and leave. Here’s the video of that disgusting incident:

So hey, Bob, this is the thanks you get for carrying the Deep State’s water for two years. Frankly, it couldn’t happen to a more deserving guy.

Best of luck with all of that.

The Week in Review: The Trump Tide Begins to Turn

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

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

The week began with sellout actor Robert DeNiro threatening Trump supporters that he’d never forget what we’ve done the last few years, whatever that means. Yeah, well, we’re never gonna forget he got paid $20 million for making “Dirty Grandpa” and “The Intern.”:

But things only got better from there. Here is a worker who does, I kid you not, the BEST. TRUMP. IMPRESSION. EVER!:

Slick Willie and the Pantsuit Princess got heckled in their fake “home state” of New York, and all was right with the world.:

Jabba The Nadler jumped in to defend The Enemy Within, Ilhan Omar, in her latest anti-America remarks controversy.:

Cher previews the lyrics to her upcoming new hit sing, “MY CITY CAN’T TAKE CARE OF ITS OWN!!!!”:

…and the next morning’s Campaign Update was all about that Cher tweet, which was the most awesomest tweet in the history of awesomely hypocritical tweets.:

Why “global warming” isn’t really a thing anymore…:

It was mid-day Monday, and Notre Dame was burning.:

Meanwhile, “Morning Joe” was off his meds again. Or maybe he was on them, it’s hard to tell.:

Irish Bob O’Rourke was running low on meaningless sophistries to recite to his mind-numbed followers, so he decided to poll them about what they want to hear, so they could give him a bunch more things to regurgitate back to them on the campaign trail. He is seriously running the most vacuous campaign in Democrat history, and that is the party that gave us two previous campaigns from Joe Biden.:

AOC is actually correct about this, but the truth about Creepy Joe Biden won’t sit well with San Fran Nan.:

San Fran Nan was trying to get AOC and The Enemy Within under some control, and her efforts did seem to have some dampening effect on their behavior as the week wore on. It won’t last for long, though.:

Well, that sure doesn’t fit the narrative. Not at all.:

Because he plans to “pay” for it by ordering the Treasury to print trillions of new dollars every year, devaluing the currency in the process. Same way he plans to pay for free college and all his other mindless socialist ideas. It’s the Venezuela model.:

Eric “Because the Government has nukes” Swalwell entered the presidential race, solely to play the role of the Democrat Party’s stalking horse on gun control.:

Andy McCarthy had a great piece on the Obama Cabal’s spying operation on the Trump Campaign.:

Yikes. Running Roy Moore for that senate seat again would be like Texas Democrats running Wendy Davis as their gubernatorial candidate again.:

Here’s my Campaign Update on San Fran Nan’s efforts to control her radical Kiddie Caucus by putting them in semi-time out.:

Tea Biscuits everywhere stand highly insulted by this tweet from the inimitable James Woods.:

Irish Bob O’Rourke was too busy riding a skateboard in his sheep suit.:

The slow turning of Fox News continues…:

Our fake news media barely noticed, but realeasing the Mueller Report wasn’t the only important action taken by Attorney General William Barr this week.:

CNN’s real competition isn’t Fox News or MSNBC, it’s TLC and The Food Network.:

Gosh, I wonder what tipped him off?:

Best, most prescient meme of the week here.:

Brit Hume tipped me off to one of the best things I’ve read all year. You should read it, too.:

I’m old enough to remember when journalists were trained to bitch and moan whenever public officials refused to hold press conferences. Now, they bitch and moan when the Attorney General holds one. It’s all so despicable.:

All carbon tax proposals are nothing more than money-grabbing scams.  Every one of them. Remember this key fact of political life – it will serve you well in the future.:

Tim Young is the hammer, liberals are his nails.:

I’m always happy to be of service to others.:

And just like that, here we go.:

President Trump offers the most concise summary of the 400-page Mueller Witch Hunt Report.:

….aaaaannnnnndddd the celebration at the White House begins.:

The media reaction to Barr’s release of the Mueller Report was highly-predictable, and oh, so entertaining.:

….they were still melting down the next day, to no one’s surprise.:

Their behavior was so abhorrent that they’d even lost Geraldo Rivera, for crying out loud.:

Chris Cuomo looked like a deer in the headlights.  Ok, he always looks like a deer in the headlights, but still…:

Meet the new #NeverTrump talking points, same as the old #NeverTrump talking points. So tiresome.:

Fauxcahontas was on the warpath, sending out smoke signals demaning scalps!:

….aaaannnnnddd reliable old NBC News led the charge with the new officially-approved joint Media/Democrat talking points, as the goal posts shifted yet again.:

And finally, Mitt Romney saw what he thought was a chance to advance his own presidential ambitions by jumping in with the Democrat/Media propaganda complex, because of course he did.:

What an amazing week it was, huh?

Happy Easter to you all!

A Snake Named Mitt Emerges From the Grass

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

Situational outrage, by Mitt Romney. – Mitt Romney still thinks he can become president. That fact was obvious throughout his 2018 senatorial campaign, and it is obvious in every public statement he’s made since buying that Utah senate seat. He didn’t come to the senate to represent the interests of the people of Utah; he came there for pure self-aggrandizement purposes. He’s there solely to undermine President Donald Trump, and see if he can somehow work with Bill Kristol and the few dozen remaining #NeverTrump fake Republicans to weasel his way into the 2020 GOP presidential nomination.

Thus, Romney’s statement about the Mueller report issued yesterday comes as no surprise at all. Here’s what he said:

So, just as Romney refused to actually campaign against Barack Obama in 2012, refused to offer any cogent criticism of his radical leftist opponent or go after him in any truly meaningful way, he still refuses to point his crooked finger of criticism at the real opposition today. Romney’s “sickened” reading all the gossip and unfounded innuendo put into the Mueller Report by 19 Clinton/Obama hacks, but he is not at all sickened by these actual facts:

  • Romney is not sickened by the fact that the Democrats conspired with the fake news media for three solid years to push a “Russia Collusion” conspiracy theory;
  • Romney is not sickened by the fact that Special Counsel has proven that conspiracy theory to be a total and complete fraud;
  • He is not sickened by the fact that the Hillary Clinton Campaign and DNC spent $11 million conspiring with agents from Great Britain and Russia to compile the phony “Trump Dossier” that became the foundation for the conspiracy theory;
  • He is not sickened by the fact that, in the wake of being revealed to be massive frauds, neither the Democrats nor anyone in the fake news media has offered any sort of apology for their anti-American efforts to undermine a duly elected president and our democracy;
  • He is not sickened by the fact that a cabal of deep state operatives within the DOJ/FBI worked first to fix the 2016 election in favor of the Pantsuit Princess, and then worked to effect an actual, real coup d’etat designed to fraudulently remove a sitting President;
  • Mitt Romney, ostensibly a “Republican”, is not sickened by the likelihood that this cabal’s efforts have hampered the ability of a duly-elected President to properly staff his administration and do the work of the American people, and that those efforts most likely enabled the Democrats to capture control of the House of Representatives in 2018;
  • Mitt Romney, supposed upstanding American, is not sickened by the fact that Robert Mueller and his Gestapo-like tactics have destroyed the lives of many American citizens, including a real, true American hero in General Mike Flynn.

That list of things that sicken you and me but do not even phase Mitt Romney could go on and on and on. But being sickened by any of those things would not help this self-absorbed jerk advance his goal of snaking his way into the GOP nomination in 2020. So, why bother, right?

Right.

Mitt Romney’s sensibilities and ethics are purely situational.

 

Donald Trump is who he is, and he wears that personal reality right out there on his sleeve for everyone to see. You can like him or not like him, but he has been a damned-effective President despite the massive conspiracy designed to stop him. And the best thing about him is that he is completely transparent, unlike any of his most public critics, most especially the fake-Republican snakes in the grass like Mitt Romney.

Here’s the bottom line: Mitt lost; Trump won.

That is all.

The Fake News Media Proves to be Exactly Who We Thought They Were

The Afternoon Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

If you expected the denizens of our fake national news media to accept the truth of the Mueller Report after its release today and move on to focusing on real news, well, think again. If you expected fake reporters who have gotten literally everything about this entire fiasco wrong for two solid years to do a mea culpa and promise to do better going forward, well, sorry.

If you expected the talking heads at CNN and MSNBC to engage in a little sober on-air introspection and begin the process of analyzing how it was that their repeated cocksure pronouncements that “Mueller has got the goods” and the always-handy “this is the beginning of the end for Donald Trump” could have been so utterly wrong for so damn long, well, not gonna happen.

Instead of any of those things that any honest, thoughtful person would do in such a situation, we got exactly what we should have all expected we would get from these despicable hacks, which was a full-blown on-air meltdown of epic proportions. The hysteria still-ongoing at CNN and MSNBC should be recorded for posterity and presented in every journalism school in America as the starkest examples of what does not amount to responsible, sober journalism in any way, shape or form.

The display is despicable. It is disgusting. It is demented. But hey, these talking heads are all Democrat activists, so what else would we expect?

Here are just a handful of out-takes from today’s TV news festivities, courtesy of the folks at NewsBusters.com:

CNN “legal analyst” Jeffrey Toobin:  “it sure looks like” the President is guilty of “obstruction of justice to me” because “every obstruction of justice prosecution is based on an attempt that doesn’t succeed.” Holy crap. For the record, the Mueller Report makes no finding of obstruction of justice, exactly as AG William Barr has said.

CNN’s John King follows with advocacy for impeachment based on, well, nothing real.: “If people actually read this as opposed to put out their quick statements that they put out, so far what you’re seeing from most Republicans is this is great. The President’s innocent. Totally exonerated. It’s time to move on. Well, if the Republicans actually read this, you know, that’s up for the political community to decide if there’s a threshold for impeachment.”

ABC’s John Karl knows better than Robert Mueller as to what does and does not amount to “collusion”: Ultimately, the conclusion here in this special counsel is it did not rise to the level of a violation of the law.” Karl, who is not a lawyer, declared, “But there is significant contact here. You might even say collusion.” My goodness.

Back at CNN, fake Republican Anna Navarro throws a hissy fit.: “William Barr is a political hack in attorney general’s clothing. It’s simply disgusting.” Later on she tweeted that “Barr looks like a teddy bear. But he is complicit. He is duplicitous. He is disloyal to the Constitution. He is in dereliction of duty.” Somebody forgot to take her meds this morning.

Over at MSNBC, ex-CIA Director John Brennan is back to his old tricks.: “The amount of information that relates to collusion and obstruction activity is really quite extensive in this report.” *sigh*

Also at MSNBC, formerly-sane person Nicolle Wallace went off on a surreal rant in which she smeared Barr as “shill” and a “human shield” for the President, until she was reduced to repeatedly crying, “Why? Why?”

That’s just a few small snippets of the full-fledged implosion taking place on the nation’s TV screens today. Expect it to continue for a week or two, as CNN and MSNBC frantically try to keep their precious Russia Collusion narrative alive in order to prop up their flagging ratings.

But all bad things must come to an eventual end, and this is really the end of the Mueller Witch Hunt for all intents and purposes. The fake media won’t be able to keep this corpse of a false narrative reanimated for much longer before it is simply subsumed by accumulating current events.

If nothing else, today’s events proved conclusively that our fake news media is, in the words of the great Dennis Green, exactly who we thought they were:

Barr’s Release of the Mueller Report Closes Act I of Trump’s Three-Act Play

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

Today, the curtain closes on Act I. – Attorney General William Barr will release what the Washington Post describes as a “lightly redacted” version of the Mueller Report this morning, and Democrats are already going berserk. Because of course they are. They’re Democrats – that’s what they do.

Prominent congressional Dems like Jabba the Nadler, Mad Maxine Waters, Da Nang Dick Blumenthal and Bug-Eyed Adam Schiff all rushed to the nearest TV camera last night to squeal about the fact that Mr. Barr will hold a press conference prior to releasing the report, something every other AG in American history would also have done. The Democrat talking points – naturally echoed by prominent fake journalists like the New York Times’ Maggie Haberman on Twitter – contend that “the Mueller Report should speak for itself” and that the AG is attempting to usurp congress’s solemn duty to interpret the report for the American people.

Meh.

Here is the real reason why the Democrats and their fake media co-conspirators are going nuts about Barr’s press conference: Because oily Rod Rosenstein will be standing there right next to him in full endorsement of the process Barr has taken with the report. Also because Barr will no doubt inform the American people on live television that both Rosenstein and Mueller his own self participated in making the proper redactions in the report before it became public.

The Democrats and media who have spent the better part of three years outright lying every day about their Russia Collusion fantasy can’t stand to have this open, transparent conveyance of real information about Mueller’s report. After all, Rosenstein was their guy, the fixer, the man who appointed Mueller in the first place for no justifiable reason, the enabler who wrote not one, but two scoping memos authorizing Mueller to take his most-likely illegal Witch Hunt in any direction he wanted to pursue.

Oily Rod was the guy who held those previous Friday afternoon press conferences defending the various indictments of Russian ham sandwiches, doing his best to pretend that the spending of a couple million dollars creating a bunch of fake Twitter accounts was somehow an existential threat to the greatest and strongest nation ever conceived by mankind. Rosenstein was the guy who refused to intervene early on when it became obvious Mueller was stacking his staff with a bunch of corrupt Obama/Clinton activists rather than a balanced team of professional lawyers, the “supervisor” who never lifted a finger to curb Mueller’s rampant, heinous employment of Gestapo-like tactics.

For two solid years, Rod Rosenstein was the man who the lying Democrats and fake news media assured all Americans was a stand-up guy, a true hero who was doing his best to rid the Republic of the Bad Orange Man in the White House. To have this same man, this ostensible leftist hero, now stand before the assembled TV cameras in tacit endorsement of Barr’s interpretation of the Mueller Report and acknowledgement of his and Mueller’s own roles in making the redactions from it in order to protect the rights of American citizens who were interviewed during the grand jury processes and other perfectly valid reasons amounts to a complete and total debunking of the fake media’s fake narrative on this fantasy.

Democrat politicians and fake journalists are the equivalent of political vampires: Transparency is their sunlight; truth is their garlic; they recoil from honesty exactly the same way Count Dracula recoils from the Christian Cross.

Regardless of the squealing from the collection of Star Wars bar scene characters who currently chair committees in the House of Representatives, Barr will hold his presser at 9:30 ET and release the redacted report at 11:00 ET today, because that is what he has promised to do. This is a man who has made a habit of doing exactly what he promised congress he would do in his confirmation hearings since taking office, a real Attorney General who is playing everything strictly by the book. If that makes congress unhappy, so be it – Barr doesn’t appear to much care what politicians of either party think.

The positive thing for the fake news media is that CNN and MSNBC will temporarily regain some of the massive audience loss they have suffered over the past month, since their Russia Collusion fantasy came up a crapper. After all, the Mueller report was written by a bunch of Democrat activists, and will certainly portray President Trump in the most negative light possible, so we will have a couple of weeks of media and Democrat-fed hysteria over the revival of their Russia Collusion corpse before the dead story gets overtaken by other, real current events.

For real Americans who actually love their country, the best part about finally getting to this day is that it in reality closes the curtain on Act I of what will ultimately become the three-act play of the Trump presidency. The curtain will next come up on Act II, which will begin with the issuance of the report by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz on the rampant abuse of the FISA process that took place throughout 2016 and into 2017, as Obama officials within the DOJ and FBI furiously tried to prevent Trump from winning the election and then attempted to stage a coup d’etat after he took office.

From there, Act II will proceed to the revelation of what, if anything, Salt Lake City U.S. Attorney John Huber has been doing over the last 18 months, since former AG Jeff Sessions claimed he had assigned Huber to investigate all the FBI/DOJ Cabal’s shenanigans during the 2016/17 time frame. After that revelation, Act II may or may not proceed to prosecutions of some or all of the Cabal’s participants. That will again be up to Mr. Barr.

Act III will dawn in August 2020 with the re-nomination of President Trump by the GOP and the nomination of one fraud or another by the Democrats in a race that will result in Trump’s re-election. That final act will continue through the entire four years of Trump’s second term in office, and will conclude with a final scene of hundreds of pussy-hat-wearing activists and minor Hollywood celebrities screaming and crying on the National Mall on January 20, 2025, exactly as the play opened on January 20, 2017.

This unlikely tragicomedy was apparently all preordained, and no amount of bluster and squealing from the stuck pigs who run the Democrat Party and our fake news media can change the inexorable progression of its plot lines. So the best thing the rest of us can do is just sit back and enjoy the spectacle of it all.

After all, are you not entertained?

That is all.
