No, Jim Acosta and CNN Did Not Win Their Case Friday

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

No, Jim Acosta and CNN did not “win” their case today, so everybody needs to calm down here. 

All the plaintiffs in the case against the White House won this morning was an injunction in which the judge in the case, Timothy Kelly, ordered the restoration of Acosta’s hard pass to the White House grounds while the case is in the process of being heard and decided. Believe it or not, I think this was a completely reasonable action for the judge to take, since it ensures Acosta will not have been unfairly disadvantaged in the event that CNN and Acosta are able to make a compelling case that ends with a ruling in their favor.

Make sense?

Now, in addition to ordering Acosta’s pass to be restored, the judge let it be known that he thinks CNN and Acosta are likely to prevail on their 5th Amendment, due process-based argument that Acosta was not provided with  “sufficient notice or explanation before his credentials were revoked or been given sufficient opportunity to respond before they were.” As it happened, Acosta was actually given no notice at all – he simply showed up at the Secret Service station outside the White House grounds where he normally presents his credentials before entering and was informed at that time that they had been revoked.

While the White House press office spelled out its reasons after the fact, the judge has ruled that this was not sufficient notice.

Judge Kelly also made it clear that he does not believe CNN or Acosta have an unfettered First Amendment-based right to a White House press badge.

Thus, basically what has happened today is that Judge Kelly has forced the White House to put Acosta on probation.  His press badge will be restored while the case is being heard and will be revoked again should the Judge ultimately rule against the plaintiffs.

In the meantime, both President Trump and White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders have promised to write up and publish a formal set of rules for decorum that Acosta and all other fake reporters must follow while on the White House grounds and during press briefings.

President Trump commented on the entire process earlier today in an interview with Fox News’s Chris Wallace:

Trump told Wallace it’s “not a big deal,” saying, “What they said, though, is that we have to create rules and regulations for conduct… we’re doing that, we’re going to write them up right now. It’s not a big deal. And if he misbehaves, we’ll throw him out or we’ll stop the news conference.”

“Nobody believes in the First Amendment more than I do. And if I think somebody is acting out of sorts, I will leave. I’ll say, ‘Thank you very much, everybody. I appreciate you coming.’ And I’ll leave. And those reporters will not be too friendly to whoever it is that’s acting up.”

These White House press briefings have been taking place in their modern format since the mid-1970s.  In all that time, the White House had never had a need to write up formal rules for decorum because the reporters involved were mature enough and had enough respect for the setting and the office of the presidency to know how to behave themselves.  But today, unfortunately, the pack of childish jackals who now make up the White House press corps no longer possess those qualities as a group.

So, just like in any elementary school across America, the rules for behavior will be written up, probably posted on the wall, and anyone who acts up and violates them will be sent to the office for punishment.  It’s pathetic, really, but then again, this is CNN and Jim Acosta we’re talking about here, so of course it is.

That is all.

End the White House Press Briefing Now

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this #Winning yet? – Some great numbers for President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three words) in the latest Rasmussen survey.  His public approval rating is back up to 50%, which is 5 points higher than Barack Hussein Obama’s rating was at this same point in his first term.

But wait, there’s more!  As if that weren’t #WINNING enough, the President’s approval rating among African American voters has now ticked up to a princely (for a Republican) 29%, almost double his 15% support among Black voters a year ago.  In the 2016 election, Candidate Trump received just 8% of the Black vote.

If that rising support level were to translate into the President receiving even 15% of the Black vote in his 2020 re-election bid, he would win 40 states and 370 electoral votes.

All this #WINNING truly never gets old, does it?

Your Fake News Media in Action! – Hey, look, the New York Times hired another racist for its editorial board.  The comely Mizzzz Sarah Jeong has a long history of posting the most heinous sort of anti-White racism on her Twitter feed, and the editors at the NYTimes think that’s just peachy keen.

After the story went viral on social media yesterday, the Times put out an unintentionally hilarious explanation in which it claims Mizzzz Sarah Jeong was put through a “rigorous vetting” process.  Mind you that these are the exact same people who rigorously vetted one Ali Watson, a reporter with a long history of selling sex in exchange for illegal leaks of classified information, and who still employ this same Ali Watson many weeks after her sex-for-leaks practices were publicly exposed.

So, just standard operating procedure at your New York Times, a fake newspaper that actually has no professional standards at all.  You couldn’t make this stuff up if you wanted to.

Why are we having these press briefings again? It’s an honest question. – As readers have all no doubt seen by now, Little Jimmy Acosta threw another of his periodic snit fits at the White House press briefing on Thursday.  You can watch the fun here if you haven’t already seen it.

After he got righteously smacked down by Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Acosta fled the room like any petulant 3 year-old child would do, and then rushed to brag about it on Twitter, as any 25 year-old Millennial child would do:

So, he’s a big, bad man who demanded a particular answer to his question from the “little woman” in his life, and when the “little woman” wouldn’t give him the answer he demanded, he stormed out of the room.  No idea if Acosta is married, but if he is I really feel sorry for that “little woman.”

Not even a week ago, the same Little Jimmy Acosta was bitching on his Twitter account that the White House had only held something like 6 formal press briefings in July.  So, Little Jimmy, having the mindset of the typical 3 year-old child, is angry when the briefings don’t occur, and he’s even more angry when they do occur and he can’t get the “little woman” to say what he wants her to say.

All of which brings me to this question, which I’ve raised many times before:  Why is the White House continuing this farce?  Why is it doing any press briefings at all?  Why is it still allowing these people – many of whom, like Acosta and the execrable April Ryan are clear enemies of the state – to roam around the White House grounds like a pack of rabid dogs every day?

Think about it:  What actual “news” did the public get out of Thursday’s briefing that it would not have gotten otherwise?  Can you think of a single thing?  I can’t.

There’s a reason for this:  The fake reporters in that room have no real interest in reporting real news.  The people in that room are only interested in getting their face on television, and in asking some gotcha question that might produce an answer that would give them a clickbait fake story.  So why continue to place Ms. Sanders in the position of having to face this pack of anti-Trump animals on a regular basis?

As I’ve pointed out in the past, the U.S. Republic somehow survived for two full centuries without this press briefing model.  The daily press briefings did not become a thing until the 1970s, yet somehow we had a far better-informed public then than we do today, after 40 years of the use of this mode of White House communication.

Every presidential administration has a duty to keep the public informed of what it is doing.  But no administration has any duty at all to cater to the whims of a bunch of preening, self-promoting jackasses who want to be free to wander around the halls of the White House doing what amounts to opposition research for the opposition political party.

Yesterday’s latest Acosta-led farce is just the latest in a very long line of demonstrations that this mode of communicating is outdated and should be ended.  In the 21st century, there are myriad other ways for the White House to keep the press and the public informed of the actions it is taking on behalf of the American people.  A great example is the President’s own Twitter account, which he uses each and every day for that exact purpose.

Donald Trump is an unconventional President in almost every way.  So why is he still insisting on using this tired old non-functioning model of communication with the press?

Time to stop the madness, Mr. President.  Long past time, actually.  End these press briefings now, before one of these rabid dogs physically assaults your press secretary.

Just another day in all fake news all the time America.

That is all.

The Democrat Party Now Actively Supports Bigotry and Mob Rule

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

[Note:  The original text of this piece incorrectly identified Lexington as “suburb of Washington, DC.”  That’s what I get for relying on my memory for geographic accuracy.]

Leftists hate you and want to deprive you of your rights, Part 10,983. – The big news on Saturday came with the revelation that the owner of the Red Hen, a small, trendy restaurant located in the Northern Virginia town of Lexington, kicked White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, her small children and five other members of her family out as they attempted to have dinner there on Friday evening.

The establishment’s owner, one Stephanie Wilkinson – who also apparently owns several other businesses in the small town – claims she received a call around 8:00 p.m. from her employees, notifying her that Sanders and her family were, gasp!, in the restaurant and expecting to plop down about $700 for dinner.  Noting that her employees were in a state of emergency snowflake triggering over having to serve a deputy of the President of the United States of America (because of course they were), Wilkinson donned her Birkenstocks, peasant dress and pussy hat (ok, just guessing there, but it seems likely) and rushed over to demand the paying, polite customers leave her greasy spoon immediately.

All parties present acknowledge that the Sanders party politely left.  Sanders even offered to pay for the privilege of being booted out of the place, but Wilkinson, being the raging nitwit she is, didn’t even want her money.  That would have been the end of it, but one of the spoiled, Millennial employees felt the need to post about it all on Facebook (because of course he did), which then produced an uproar on Twitter (because of course it did).

Sanders, in an effort to clear up all the lies being spread about the situation on social media, then decided to issue a tweet of her own about it:

This factual message set off another round of social media outrage, as leftist snowflakes became triggered all over again (because of course it did).

The fake news media is treating this situation as if it was just something that took place on the spur of the moment (because of course they are), that Wilkinson had no idea Sanders and her family were coming to dine in their restaurant and was just responding to the wishes of her triggered employees.

But let’s think about that:  The truth is that that Sanders had made the reservation well in advance.  The truth is that Ms. Wilkinson and her husband are leftist activists (because of course they are), as demonstrated conclusively in this photo:

This woman’s such a radical nitwit she even puts a pussy hat on her kid.  I’m sure he never gets bullied at school.

And then there’s this quote from her in the Washington Post:

“I’m not a huge fan of confrontation. I have a business, and I want the business to thrive. This feels like the moment in our democracy when people have to make uncomfortable actions and decisions to uphold their morals,” she told The Post.

Well, gosh, what better way to make someone feel uncomfortable than to see their name on your reservation list and hatch a plan to seat her party, get the drinks served and appetizer order taken, and then humiliate her, her young children and the five other people she’s with by kicking them out?

This of course comes just a few days after Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was run out of MXDC, a really lousy imitation Mexican food place in Washington, by a bunch of activists who had been alerted to Nielsen’s presence by the restaurant’s staff.

As with everything else the Democrat Party and fake news media do these days, this is all stuff that is straight out of the Saul Alinsky playbook:  You take an issue, personalize it by demonizing selected targets and make it increasingly difficult for them to do their jobs or live their lives.  Very predictably, fake news media personalities and Democrat politicians praised the discriminatory actions against both women on social media, CNN and MSNBC.

Again, as with everything else the Democrats and fake media do, none of this is organic.  None of it just happens on the spur of the moment.  This tactic of humiliating Trump Administration personnel in public is obviously part of a well-coordinated plan, and it will soon spread to efforts to discriminate against anyone who publicly identifies as a Trump supporter if there are no visible consequences for the Red Hen or MXDC.

Conservatives have always shied away from engaging in boycotts or public demonstrations that attempt to shut such bigoted businesses down for two reasons:  1) most conservatives actually work for a living and don’t have the free time to go hang out on a street corner chanting stupid slogans and holding cardboard signs, and 2) conservatives know that any public gathering of more than 10 people whose politics are to the right of Fidel Castro will be spun by the fake news media as a gathering of Nazis.

But in today’s digital, Internet world, there are many other ways to negatively impact a business, especially those in the service industries.  Already, Red Hen’s website was crashed yesterday by a flood of people making fake reservations, as were their pages on Yelp and OpenTable by floods of people trying to post fake reviews.  Some enterprising hacker even managed to hack the business’s online menu with a note that dining there causes erectile dysfunction.

But back to the point, which is that the Democrats and their activist supporters in and out of the fake news media are now actively supporting discrimination and mob rule.  If you think otherwise, you just need to pay closer attention to what’s really happening in our society.

Way back in the early 1990s I wrote a newspaper column in which I discussed the increasingly obvious reality that Democrats’ ultimate goal was to make it illegal to be a Republican.  Many readers back then scoffed at that notion.  Those who are still among the living are probably not scoffing this morning.

Just another day in leftists hate you and want to take your freedoms away America.

That is all.

Kill the White House Press Briefings Now

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Your fake news media in action! – The last couple of days have produced one of the fakest fake news stories in fake news media history, typified by this blaring headline in USA Today:  The Feds Lost – Yes, Lost – 1475 Migrant Children.

Of course, the first fake part of this story is the headline – these aren’t “migrant” children, they’re illegal immigrants who crossed our border in violation of our nation’s laws.  The story blames the problem entirely on the Trump Administration, yet these children are mostly unaccompanied minors allowed into this country by the outlaw Obama Administration beginning in 2015, under executive-ordered policies that were also in clear violation of U.S. immigration laws.

Once these unaccompanied minors entered the U.S. in violation of U.S. law, they were intentionally scattered all over the country by Obama’s evil minions at taxpayer expense, often flown first class to their destinations.  Once these illegal immigrants arrived at their destinations, they were registered with local officials of the Health and Human Services Administration, and then simply released into the general population.  Many were reunited with their illegal immigrant parents, some weren’t because – shockingly! – their illegal immigrant parents didn’t really want to be found by government authorities.

Is it really any surprise, then, that of the tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors allowed into this country under this illegal program, the government has lost track of 1,475 of them since 2015?  Wouldn’t this be completely expected, especially given the reality that a pretty good percentage of these parents are criminals who are going to do everything they can to hide from law enforcement?

This is a classic example of Josef Goebbels-style media propaganda, in which a statistic that is actually real is turned into a Big Lie that both ignores the cause and places the blame on some convenient boogeyman.  Goebbels would have blamed it all on the Jews;  our fake news media blames it all on Trump.

These people are disgraces to their dead profession.

Speaking of disgraces to the dead profession of journalism, CNN’s Little Jimmy Acosta, the dimmest bulb at the fakest news network in the history of mankind, was whining on his Twitter feed Friday evening:

So, he had to whine on his Twitter feed because he hasn’t been getting to get his whining done at the White House press briefings as often as he’d like recently.  Isn’t that terrible?  Don’t you feel awful for him?  No?  Yeah, me neither.

Look, I’m all for freedom of the press, but there is no reason why the White House – any White House – should ever hold a daily press briefing.  These briefings didn’t even begin until the 1970s – somehow, the Republic had managed to survive for almost two centuries without them.  The briefings became a daily thing for awhile during the Nixon Administration, in a failed effort to get Nixon’s message out through the news media of the time.  They were largely dropped in the Ford years but started on a daily basis again during the Carter presidency, and have continued with only sporadic interruptions since.

The briefings lost all meaning in 2009, when the fake news media decided to simply perform as pathetic lapdogs to their hero for 8 long years.  Obama could have ended them at any time he wanted to, and you’d have never heard a peep of protest from CNN.

In the Trump Administration, the briefings have devolved into nothing but forums for aspiring peacocks like Acosta to get his relished camera time and for belligerent dopes like April Ryan to throw out the most idiotic questions their tiny minds can come up with.  Trump’s two press spokesmen – Sean Spicer and Sarah Huckabee Sanders – are assaulted on a daily basis, cross-examined by hostile reporters who in fact consider them and the President they represent to be mortal enemies, and none of the Administration’s points of view are ever given fair treatment in any media reporting outside of Fox News or the editorial page of the Wall Street Journal.

Even worse, both Spicer and Sanders have been attacked in the most personal and ugliest ways in social media by the same fake reporters who spend most of their day inside the White House.  It’s to the point now where the relationship has become so hostile with some of the reporters – like Acosta and Ryan – that you really have to wonder how the Secret Service justifies continuing to allow them into the building.

I argued way back in January 2017 that the very best thing President Trump could do with these press briefings is to eliminate them because they serve no legitimate purpose anymore.  Every president has an obligation to keep the American people informed about the actions of their administrations, but no president has any obligation to allow a bunch of hostile enemies of their administration and personnel onto White House grounds on a daily basis.

There are any number of alternative means of getting information to the public that don’t involve placing Sarah Sanders and other White House personnel in harm’s way.  These include:

  • Social media;
  • Taking and answering legitimate questions in writing;
  • Daily press releases summarizing important events;
  • Regular recorded video or audio messages from the President and his senior people;
  • Frequent call-ins to televised news programs, even to CNN on occasion.

The President has obviously been advised by his communications team that continuing to work with the pathetic collection of banty roosters and cackling clowns that make up the White House press corps somehow makes the press coverage of his presidency more favorable.  I said last January that this is horrible advice, and nothing has changed since that time.  The only way this President’s message gets out to the people in any real way today is via his own Twitter account.

This is a very unconventional presidency and it requires the use of unconventional means of communications.  The daily press briefings are a relic from the past that represent a terrible model for today, and they need to be killed.

Here’s hoping that the fact that there have been only 10 in the last 32 days is the start of a trend.

Just another day in fake news media America.

Thanks to Bret Baier, James Comey’s Defense Strategy is now a Matter of Public Record

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The depraved seditionists who make up the team of fake journalists at CNN spent all day Saturday whining about the fact that President Trump refused to attend last night’s White House Correspondents Dinner for the second straight year.  No longer able to attract any A-list talent, the WHCD was hosted by some D-list comic named Michelle Wolf, whose opening monologue proved beyond all doubt the President had made the right decision once again.

CNN laughably billed the dinner as a “celebration of the first amendment,” as if anyone at CNN actually gives a damn about the constitution anymore.  Ms. Wolf took this billing to mean that she was free to fill her routine with any profanity, insult or slander she saw fit to use, even to the point of personally attacking White House representatives Sarah Sanders and Kellyanne Conway, who made the mistake of choosing to attend the dinner.

The evening’s festivities only went downhill from there.  Gosh, hard to imagine why the President of the United States of America would choose not to legitimize such nonsense.  In reality, the dinner provided just one more reason to question why the White House continues to allow these people onto the grounds for daily press briefings.  It has been obvious they are a hostile force since the first day of this administration, and represent a security threat to the President and his advisors.

The President of the United States has a duty to keep the people informed of what his administration is doing on a regular basis.  But no president has any obligation to cater to the whims of a group of hostile degenerates, which is what the White House press corps has become.  Last night’s event was a disgrace, not just to the near-dead journalistic profession, but to the entire country.  It should not go unpunished.

Mr. Trump, meanwhile, traveled to Washington Township, Michigan to hold a rally that drew attention away from the attention-starved gaggle of fake journalists.  It was classic Trump, a wide-ranging hour and twenty minute stream of consciousness that touched on pretty much everything going on in Washington, DC today.  The White House Press Association should send him a thank you note for distracting the public’s attention away from the disgusting display its members put on at their annual Hollywood for Ugly People gala.

But back to CNN.  If they haven’t already done so, Jeff Zucker and some of the on-air talent at the fakest fake news outlet on the face of the earth had probably better start lawyering up, since it has now become quite obvious that they have not only tailored their reporting to support the conspiracy to take down this presidency, but some of them have been active participants in it.

Make no mistake about this:  What has gone on within the FBI and DOJ since mid-2016 was initially a concerted effort to rig a national election that then, after failing to do that, morphed into a full-blown attempt at a soft coup d’etat.  As we discussed in yesterday’s Campaign Update, CNN fake host Jake Tapper has been an active participant in the plot since January 2017, when Obama Director of National Intelligence James Clapper shared the contents of the fake Trump Dossier with him.  Since that time, Tapper has sat silently by without comment as Clapper has lied about the Dossier and who he shared it with time after time after time.  That makes Tapper a willing participant in a conspiracy to bring down a duly-elected president.

If Tapper was aware of this, it idiotic to believe that others at CNN weren’t also aware of the same thing.  As a network, CNN has not only continued to allow Clapper on its air, it actually awarded him a big contract in August 2017 to become a paid talent for the fake news channel.  By that time, it was already public knowledge that Clapper had lied to a congressional committee about all of this, but the fake news network hired him anyway.

As this conspiracy continues to unravel, there is no telling where all these various threads will lead.  But we can bet that some of them will lead deep within bowels of the management at CNN, which is about to make a bunch of lawyers a buttload of money.

Speaking of making lawyers a buttload of money, I went back and listened to James Comey’s interview with Bret Baier again yesterday.  It strikes me that in that interview, it is obvious that he was basically practicing the answers he plans to give on a witness stand in a court proceeding.

For a guy who just wrote a book about all of this, Comey’s memory has suddenly become very fuzzy.  His answers to Baier’s questions are filled with weasel-word qualifiers that good lawyers always tell their clients to use, phrases like “I don’t recall,” “not to my recollection,” “that’s not consistent with my memory,” and on and on.  Comey’s obvious defense strategy will be to blame Andrew McCabe, who was his deputy, and Bill Priestap, the FBI’s head of counterintelligence  – and the guy to whom FBI super-agent-in-his-own-mind Peter Strzok reported – for keeping him in the dark as they and their minions went about their anti-Trump machinations.

Taking that interview with Baier was a serious strategic error on Comey’s part.  Baier, with his tough questioning, forced the teen drama queen onto the record about all manner of things he should not have been talking about, leaving Comey now stuck with a narrative that’s already been aired in public.  Even with all the weasel words, it will very difficult for him to shift that story come trial time.

Those of you who still think Attorney General Jeff Sessions isn’t going to pursue any of this might want to take a close look at Comey’s behavior over the past week, because Comey obviously disagrees with you.  You might also want to think about the fact that, other than Clapper and Obama CIA Director John Brennan, the rest of the Obama high officials implicated thus far – like Ben Rhodes, Sally Yates and Samantha Power – have gone strangely silent in the public space over the last month or two.

It’s a strong bet that some lawyers are making a buttload of money off of them as well.

Just another day in the conspiracy to end the Trump presidency is falling apart America.

That is all.

Fake News CNN In Full Meltdown Thanks To James O’Keefe

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

CNN found itself in full meltdown mode on Tuesday over its latest in a long line of fake news embarrassments, and a James O’Keefe “Project Veritas” video of one of its producers admitting the network fakes the news for ratings.  O’Keefe promises more videos are yet to come.

  • Despite the public pronouncements of CEO Jeff Zucker, all is not well at CNN, the fakest news outlet in the fake news universe.  Despite Mr. Zucker’s Monday claim that his network is “more trusted than ever”, the cable channel’s ratings are in full tank mode vs. its main competitors at Fox and MSNBC in ratings released on Monday.  CNN has just one daily program among the top 20 in that mix, and it comes in at #20.  It’s key to remember that those ratings reflect viewership for the week before CNN was forced to pull down and apologize for a fake story alleging collusion between a Trump advisor and Russia, and before Project Veritas released its video showing a senior producer at CNN admitting that the channel fakes the news in a quest for…wait for it…higher ratings!  Hey, Jeff, it isn’t working, dude.
  • Making matters worse for Zucker, White House spokesman Sarah Huckabee Sanders went off on CNN in her daily press briefing, calling the network and other outlets who have been faking the news over the last year “a disgrace to journalism”, among other things.  When a gum-chomping reporter for Playboy Magazine interrupted her answer to a question, she called his behavior “outrageous”. Which it was.  You go, girl!
  • But it gets even worse for the beleaguered Mr. Zucker.  O’Keefe announced on Twitter yesterday that he has not just one, but several more, even more revealing videos of CNN employees caught in rare moments of honesty, and he plans to trickle them out into the public domain in coming days, perhaps starting today.  Quick, somebody get me some popcorn!!!!
  • So what does it all mean?  Well, the travails at CNN are just one of many indicators out there right now that the worm has begun to turn in the Trump Administration’s favor.  If you look at those TV ratings, you see Fox News, after two months running in second place to MSNBC as the public began to think there might actually be something real in the whole “Russia Collusion” fantasy play invented by the Democrats and promoted by the fake news media, now back firmly in first place, where it had dominated for more than a decade.  You also have the late night TV ratings that were released on Tuesday in which Jimmy Fallon is suddenly besting the execrable, Trump-bashing Stephen Colbert, ending a two-month losing streak.  Then you have rank and file Democrats, in the wake of the humiliating loss by Pajama Boy in GA HD 6 last week, pounding on San Fran Nan, Chuck Schumer and the rest of their leadership to stop even talking about the Russia Collusion fantasy and start talking about real issues that people actually give a damn about.
  • All of these things and many more are indicators that the public has by and large realized that the Russia story is nothing but a huge hoax – as Ms. Sanders described it yesterday – and has grown so weary of hearing about it that they are starting to abandon support for any media outlet or Democrat who continues to focus on it.
  • Then you have Bob Mueller, who has done his former credibility enormous harm by going out and hiring a procession of Clinton-and-Obama-supporting lawyers to form up his team of “investigators”.  He has so tainted his own investigation at this point that even some Democrat members of congress and leftist talking heads have begun to express concern about it.  Unless he makes some additional hires that indicate he is at least trying to form up a balanced team, no one is going to take anything he finds seriously at the end of the day.
  • Finally, you have the fact that suddenly, it’s not just Trump and his people who find themselves the subject of congressional, FBI and Justice Department investigations. Over the last couple of weeks, the headlines have been sprinkled with announcements that investigators are now targeting Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice, Loretta Lynch, John Podesta, Bernie Sanders and his wife Jane, Congressman John Conyers, even FBI interim Director Andrew McCabe, an Obama loyalist holdover.  You can expect the list of Democrats under investigation to grow substantially in coming weeks, especially as the investigations into Obama-era abuse of intelligence information get fully underway.
  • All of which places Zucker and CNN in even more of a bind, since they have so firmly established themselves as the propaganda arm of the national Democrat Party.  Would it surprise anyone if we soon discover that CNN, the network whose employee was caught passing debate questions to Hillary Clinton in advance, was also coordinating talking points and coverage with elements of the Democrat Party?  If you’re honest, the answer to that question is a firm “no.”  And that one-word answer perfectly encapsulates why CNN finds itself in full meltdown mode today.
  • Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of people.

Just another day in melting-down CNN America.

That is all.
