Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
The two biggest news ‘stories’ on December 26 weren’t ‘news’ at all. – The fake news media went semi-wild with two stories on Thursday, pushing them relentlessly hour after hour on a day that was otherwise devoid of sexy stories to push.
The first was about GOP Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski, who all the leftists in the corrupt media establishment are praying will be one of the RINOs in the Senate who will vote to remove President Trump from office in a Senate trail, assuming there ever actually is such a thing. Hey, she was a spineless traitor on the Kavanaugh nomination after she was filmed being bullied in the hallway by Dianne Feinstein – why wouldn’t she commit the ultimate betrayal against a President she has never liked?
It’s a valid question, and it might even happen eventually. The problem is that today’s story being pushed by the corrupt media doesn’t really give us any indication one way or the other.
Here’s what happened: Murkowski was asked by a local Anchorage TV reporter if she approved of the promise made by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell that he would conduct a Senate trial “in total coordination” with White House lawyers. Murkowski answered that “When I heard that, I was disturbed.”
Ok, so, the spineless RINO was disturbed. Murkowski then went onto say this:
“We have to take that step back from being hand in glove with the defense,” Murkowski told KTUU. “And so [when] I … heard what Leader McConnell had said, I happened to think that that has further confused the process.”
Ok, so, the spineless RINO is disturbed and thinks McConnell has confused the process when in fact he has crystal clarified it. What else would we expect from a spineless RINO who desperately wants to pretend to be all things to all people instead of standing on something resembling political principle? The truth is that Murkowski’s dissembling here was exactly what anyone who pays any attention to her normal behavior would have expected from her. It would have been a shock had she in fact said anything else.
But it is a long way from a principle-devoid Senator dissembling as a means of getting a pesky reporter off her back to actually casting a vote to remove a duly-elected President from office. Murkowski’s statement here was not ‘news;’ it was just another day at the office for her.
Then there’s the other story that ‘broke’ early in the afternoon about dead former Senator John McCain funneling “5 reports by Christopher Steele” to James Comey in late 2017. This ‘news’ is contained in the report by DOJ IG Michael Horowitz, a report that was made public on December 9, which was two-and-a-half weeks ago.
This is news? Really? McCain’s efforts to distribute reports funneled to him and his staff by Steele have been well known since early 2018. This business about “five separate reports” is nothing but wordplay. All five of those Steele-manufactured “reports” ended up being included in the infamous fake Dossier, and the thought that the FBI was not aware of their existence until they were handed to Comey by McCain is absurd.
But hey, it was that rarest of rare things of the Trump presidency today – a very slow news day – so the people pushing ‘news’ 24 hours a day to attract viewers and website clicks were desperate.
For the rest of us, it’ll be a relief when the holidays are over and we are back to having half a dozen real news cycles every day.
That is all.
