NBC Admits Media Bias, but only in a Highly-Biased Way

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Even the fake news media’s pieces admitting media bias subconsciously display the media’s bias. – NBC has a piece at what it calls its “Think” website this morning that actually admits that the media is biased against conservatives.  Yippeee!!!  Happy days are here again!!!!  All the fake reporters have realized the error of their news-faking ways and are going to start reporting real news again!!!!

Ok, don’t get too excited.  This isn’t that, not remotely close to it.

The piece is actually just another hit piece on President Trump and his supporter base, which continues to grow in spite of all the #fakenews hysteria generated by outlets like NBC and CNN, written by an inveterate “Never Trumper” named Evan Siegfried. Siegfried bills himself as a “Republican strategist,” though the origins of that tag remain somewhat mysterious.

Among Siegfried’s previous writings is a piece he penned in May 2016 for the dying anti-Trump rag the New York Daily News titled “Why I’m With Her: A Republican strategist explains why he will vote for Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump.”  Oh.  That guy.

So you end up with a piece in which the President of the United States is accused of “weaponizing” the media’s own bias, which somehow ends up meaning that anyone who supports the President of the United States of America is living in a “post-fact world.”  This is #NeverTrump dogma, Book 1, Chapter 1, Verse 1.

Siegfried even goes to the brain-dead length of comparing the media’s treatment of President Trump to a couple of incidents in which New York City’s commie Mayor Bill DeBlasio complained about negative media coverage.  This of course ignores the reality that the NY City media’s coverage of DeBlasio has been overall the sort of fawning groupie coverage the media always gives to Democrats, while President Trump somehow remains a fairly popular POTUS despite vicious media treatment that has been 92% negative according to the Media Research Center.

He does at least correctly point out that the media’s treatment of Mitt Romney and George W. Bush was also absurdly negative and vicious – he could have gone all the way back to Nixon and Reagan to reinforce that point – and points out that the media’s long history of blatant, absurd bias against Republicans is the main reason why almost no one trusts the media to tell a story straight anymore.  But then he destroys all that solid historic foundation work by then going into attack mode on the President and anyone who supports him, in the process revealing his own anti-Trump hatred.

Here are some things he doesn’t point out about the media’s ridiculous behavior towards this President:

  • Neither the Washington Post nor the New York Times currently employs a single commentary writer who takes a pro-Trump view.  Everyone of their “conservative” writers are fervent #NeverTrumpers like Siegfried.  This is an unprecedented circumstance;
  • Just last week, one of the NYTimes’s fake conservative writers, Brett Stephens, admitted he was employed there “to oppose the President.”
  • The week-long media-fed hysteria characterizing the President’s private meeting with Vladimir Putin as being somehow unprecedented (it wasn’t) and even “treasonous” (it wasn’t);
  • The New York Times is still paying an anti-Trump reporter who was recently discovered to be trading sex for the illegal leaking of classified information.  She has simply been reassigned;
  • The Media Research Center – which Siegfried himself cites – has compiled a list of dozens of outright false reports filed by myriad media outlets, all negative to Mr. Trump, since Trump was was sworn into office.  Only a small handful of those outright false reports have resulted in negative consequences for the reporters and editors who allowed them to go to press;
  • Siegfried doesn’t mention the obvious, blatant message coordination that takes place between leading Democrats and pretty much every national media outlet on a daily basis.  Rush Limbaugh puts together montages of all these people parroting not just the same positions on issues, but the exact same words 2-3 times every month.  He could do one every day if he wanted to;
  • He doesn’t mention the obvious media practice of dummying up false stories based on “anonymous sources” every time there is a news development that is positive to the President.  John Kelly is about to celebrate his one-year anniversary as Trump’s Chief of Staff, and we have been through at least a dozen rounds of “John Kelly hates the President and is about to resign” media-generated rumor mongering since he took the office last August.  That appears to be the NYTimes’s  and CNN’s default fake story whenever they can’t find a porn star or centerfold to talk about;
  • And of course, Siegfried doesn’t make note of the fact that so many of these “journalists” make a practice of making their outright hatred for this President known to the world on their Twitter and/or Facebook accounts every day, which is the real key to everything here.

If it has done nothing else positive for our society, social media has served as the great unmasker of these people pretending to be unbiased “journalists.”  In times past, the American public had very little knowledge of the personal lives and attitudes of the reporters and editors who shaped the news every day.  That has all changed now, thanks largely to their 280-character daily rants on Twitter.

The truth is that we Trump supporters consider most of the media establishment to be #FakeNews today because we now know them so much better than we ever have before.  And that familiarity breeds contempt.

Just another day in fake news media America.

Horowitz Report Drops Today – Teen Drama Queens Prepping Their Defense

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

[Note:  The wonderful photoshop that accompanies this piece was constructed by a loyal Campaign Update reader who asked to be credited only as  dagalas.]

Hey, y’all, so far this week, President Donald Trump has gotten the Democrats and the fake news media to endorse:

– War games
– Nuclear weapons
– Refusing to negotiate with despots (where were they when Obama did that Iran deal?)
– Neverending war on the Korean peninsula

And it’s only Thursday morning!

PSA: Those loud noises you are hearing right now are just the sounds of liberal heads exploding…. – Two Norwegian lawmakers formally nominated President Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize on Wednesday.  The two are of course described as “right-leaning” members of Norway’s “Progress Party, which advocates for limited immigration and shrinking the size of government.”  Gosh, such radical ideas, wanting to preserve your country’s native culture and holding down the size of government.  If we didn’t have biased, stupid media, we would have no media at all in America.

And speaking of biased, stupid, fake news media…

“Ok, the President had a really great summit in Singapore, sadly.  So, here’s what we do:  ABC, you go with the fake report about Michael Cohen turning on Trump.  CBS, you toss out the false report about Sarah Sanders resigning.  CNN, well, you have the porn star franchise, so get on it!” –  Seriously, it’s like clockwork:  Any time President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three words) has a domestic or international triumph, all the fake news media outlets start pumping out fake news stories designed to distract attention.

If that seems like a coordinated plan to you, that’s because it is a coordinated plan.  This is what your fake news media is in today’s world:  They aren’t “news” organizations, they are propaganda arms of the Democrat Party.  It’s been this way for quite some time now – at least since 1992, but really since shortly following World War II.

It’s become more amplified since November 2016 because the people at the top of these organizations are increasingly desperate.  With every successive act of #Winning, President Trump reveals the DC “Establishment” – mainly Democrats but also a raft of disloyal Republicans – to be a decades-long utter fraud perpetrated on the American people.  Tuesday’s election results, in which a challenger loyal to the President – Katie Arrington – knocked off longtime DC swamp creature Mark Sanford in South Carolina in a very surprising upset, only served to heighten the fake media’s panic.

And guess what?  Today is the day the next report from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz drops.  Just imagine the frenzied flood of freakin’ news-fakery we are about to be treated to in the wake of that document going public at 3:00 ET this afternoon.  It will be glorious.

Several readers have asked this week what we should expect from this next Horowitz report.  My only honest answer is, hell if I know.  There are reasons to be concerned about what it might – or more likely, might not – contain, and reasons to be optimistic about it.

First, it is key to remember that the scope of this report is limited:  It only covers the DOJ/FBI conduct of its blatantly fake investigation into the Clinton email scandal, an investigation that we already know was little more than a desperate coverup designed to keep Barack Obama’s favored candidate from going to federal prison.  Horowitz is still working on a more comprehensive, subsequent report whose scope is far broader and will cover all of the DOJ/FBI efforts to fix the 2016 election and spy on the Trump Campaign, transition team and administration.

The main reason to be concerned about today’s report is that Horowitz has no doubt been placed under massive pressure internally at DOJ to mealy-mouth his findings.  We’ve already seen one report that the report will find ex-FBI Director and current teenage drama queen James Comey to have been “insubordinate”, but probably will not find him to have committed any crimes.  If that account – based of course on anonymous sources only – is accurate, then this report is a major fraud given that we already know beyond any shadow of a doubt that Comey has committed multiple perjuries before congressional committees and illegally leaked classified information to the New York Times.

So, right off the bat, we will have that barometer to inform us conclusively on the relative usefulness of this report.

The next big concern is how much of the report will be redacted.  We must remember that bad actors like Rod Rosenstein have had their greasy fingers all over this report for the past three weeks as it has gone through its review process.  Under Rosenstein’s incredibly corrupt leadership, DOJ has become notorious for redacting vast passages of documents under claims to be protecting national security, only to have it revealed later that the redacted information was merely embarrassing to the Department.  If Rosenstein has had his way with this report, we can expect that less than half of it will actually be open for public review.

But there are also reasons for optimism that this report will at least move the ball forward towards cleaning up some of the DOJ corruption and getting the process of perp-walking and prosecuting the key bad actors underway:

  • Horowitz himself has already agreed to testify before the House Oversight Committee next Monday, and that testimony will be offered under oath and threat of prosecution for perjury.  If he has been forced to make inaccurate changes to his report and the Republican members of that committee have the presence of mind to ask the right questions (we know the Democrats will only try to cover things up) then we can expect Horowitz to offer honest answers.  Or we can hope he will, anyway.
  • Horowitz is considered by most everyone to be one of the good guys, for good reason.  Yes, he served during the Obama Administration, but he was constantly engaged in fights with Obama’s corrupt attorneys general, who did everything they could to deny him the right to conduct his oversight responsibilities.
  • Then there’s the fact that, as noted above, this report has been circulating within DOJ for three weeks and also reportedly shared with the congressional “Gang of 8” – which includes notorious hacks like Dianne Feinstein and Adam Schiff – and none of it has been leaked to the press.  You can be damn sure if the original text of this report exonerated James Comey or Andrew McCabe or Peter Strzok or Lisa Page or any of the other bad actors within the FBI and DOJ, that news would have long ago appeared in the New York Times or Washington Post.  The fact that that has not happened gives us cause to hope that Horowitz has done his job.

A word of caution:  Reports like this are never fully satisfying to anyone.  Regardless of how hard Horowitz might have tried, it is literally impossible to fully keep political motivations out of any 500 page report produced in Washington, DC.

It is also very likely that those of us hoping for full justice will be initially mislead by what might seem to be inconclusive findings or mealy-mouthed language in the report, only to find out later that it is in fact extremely damaging to the subject.  It’s key to remember that Horowitz himself is not the prosecutor here:  His job is to simply lay out the facts, though he does have the power to make criminal referrals if he so chooses.

Once the report is out, the job of prosecuting the bad actors falls to the relevant U.S. attorney.  So, while you might initially be disappointed by language that, say, finds “insubordination” or “ignoring of departmental rules” by a James Comey or Andrew McCabe, we may discover later on that a prosecuting attorney finds that to be evidence of criminal conduct.

Bottom line:  I don’t know what’s in this report yet, but we’ll all have a pretty good idea by about 5:00 this afternoon.  Stay tuned.

Just another day on the poop is about to hit the fan America.

That is all.

The FBI’s Deep State Cabal Continues to Unravel, One Slimey Thread at a Time

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Yeah, that?  That’s a terrible idea.  But let’s go ahead and do it anyway. – Not one, but two of the dumbest decisions in American history were announced yesterday by completely unrelated businesses, and amazingly, neither of those businesses was named Starbucks.

First, the dimwits who run the Miss America Pageant, which literally began in the 1920s as nothing but a swimsuit competition designed to keep tourists in Atlantic City for a week past Labor Day, announced they would be cancelling the pageant’s… wait for it…swimsuit competition!

Thus ensuring that, in about 5 years, we won’t have the Miss America Pageant to kick around anymore.  Adios!

Second, the people at IHOP – aka, the International House of Pancakes – one of the most iconic breakfast houses in American history, have come up with the genius idea of changing the acronym to “IHOB.”  The catch is that they aren’t telling anybody what the “B” stands for until next Monday, but hey, just guessing here, it might just stand for “Breakfast” since that’s what the chain specializes in.

Thus ensuring that we won’t have IHOP to kick around anymore after Monday, and probably won’t have IHOB to kick around anymore in about 5 years from now.

Who makes decisions like this?  Seriously.

Ok, Bill, tell us something we don’t already know. – The FBI’s Chief of Counterintelligence, Bill Priestap, spent 8 hours testifying behind closed doors to a joint meeting of the House Judiciary and House Oversight Committees about his role and the role of others in the FBI’s sham investigation of the Pantsuit Princess’s email scandal.

While others involved the fake investigation have either lost their jobs (James Comey, Andrew McCabe, James Baker, Lisa Page) or been demoted and reassigned since last November (Peter Strzok, Bruce Ohr), Priestap has conspicuously remained in his job, where he served as Super Duper Agent Peter Strzok’s direct boss.  This has lead to much speculation that he has long been a cooperating witness for ongoing DOJ investigations being conducted by Inspector General Michael Horowitz and U.S. Attorney John Huber.

The most interesting part about Priestap’s 8 hours on the stand, as far as the public knows, is that none of his testimony has yet been leaked to the New York Times or the Washington Post.  We can be absolutely certain sure that if anything Priestap said was positive for the Democrats or the Fainting Felon it would have already appeared in stories by both of those newspapers.

The only leak as of this writing comes from Catherine Herridge at Fox News, who reported late yesterday that a “source” said Priestap testified that Strzok’s role in the FBI’s shenanigans was even more extensive than we already know, which, given that we already know that he was involved in literally every.  damn.  thing. hardly seems possible.  But there you are.

Priestap’s long-awaited testimony appears to be one step in setting the stage for the release of Horowitz’s also long-awaited report on the fake email investigation and other Coughing Crook-related matters that the FBI chose to cover up during the Obama years.  Interestingly, a second such step took place yesterday afternoon…

Life sure does come at you fast, huh Andy? – Hey, remember when ex-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe assured everyone that he hadn’t ever done anything wrong late last year?  And remember when he threatened to sue President Trump for slander?  And remember when he threatened to take everybody down with him if he was fired before his pension was fully vested?  And remember when he got fired and wrote that scathing op/ed for the Washington Post claiming he had done nothing wrong and it was all such a huge injustice?  And remember how he did that Gofundme campaign and got a bunch of idiotic suckers to give him half a million dollars for his legal defense fund?  And remember how several Democrat members of congress offered to give him jobs so he could be employed long enough to fully earn his pension?

Yeah…good times…good times.

Late yesterday, this very same Andrew McCabe had his high-paid lawyer send a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley begging for immunity from criminal prosecution in exchange for testimony before the Committee.  Funny how all that bravado and unbridled hubris starts to disappear as the wheels of justice roll inexorably in these folks’ direction.

Just a note about that IG report… – If you’re feeling frustrated at the constant delays in getting this report released, trust me, you have plenty of company.  Including me.

But here’s the way to look at this:  The people who are the subjects of the IG investigation and still working within the FBI and DOJ have now had this report in-hand for almost three weeks.  Sean Hannity was reporting that yesterday as if it is something unusual, but it is in fact standard operating procedure:  Any current employee accused of wrongdoing by the IG is given an opportunity to respond and offer exculpatory evidence before these reports are made public.

But in those three weeks, not a word of this report has been leaked to the fake news media.  Given the number of bad actors within the DOJ and FBI who are subjects of this investigation, you can be sure that if anything in this report was positive for their case, it would have already appeared in the aforementioned house organs for the Deep State.

This report is not going to be everything you want it to be – reports of investigations like this never are.  But it’s obviously not everything the Deep State wants it to be either, because if it was we’d already know about it.

Remember the old proverb:  “The wheels of justice turn slowly, but they grind exceedingly fine.”

Just another day in the unraveling deep state America.

Every Day is “Opposite Day” in the Fake U.S. News Media

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

If you’re shocked at the utterly dishonest manner in which the entirety of the fake mainstream media is covering Spygate (thanks to President Trump for coining that shorthand term today), well, you need to pay closer attention to the Campaign Update and less attention to CNN.

Here’s the short message about this 100% “Opposite Day” coverage:  Get used to it, because it’s going to continue.  At this point in the saga, fake media outlets who have served as nothing but leak receptacles for the Deep State Cabal within the FBI/DOJ for the last 2 years have no choice but to keep coordinating fake narratives with the perps.

And boy, are the perps spreading a fake narrative.  Clapper’s on The View, telling the View Shrews that the Trump should be grateful for the FBI’s efforts to illegally surveil and entrap no fewer than half a dozen members of his campaign.

Ex-FBI Director and current teenage drama queen James Comey’s out there issuing tweets like this one…

…which of course perfectly describes the 8 years of Obama that Americans had had enough of when they went to the polls on November 8, 2016 and elected Donald Trump to the presidency.  But Comey’s either too dense or just too dishonest to realize it.

Interestingly, John Brennan, who the President went after on his own Twitter account on Tuesday, has remained oddly quiet since his Cicero-quoting outburst on Sunday.  But rest assured that can’t last – this is one seditious drama queen who, like Clapper and Comey, simply can’t contain himself.

And hey, when you have The View Shrews, Jake Tapper and the other class clowns at CNN, and the entire staffs at the New York Times and Washington Post eagerly waiting to take dictation from you and spread your false narrative, why not?

The most hilarious part of this comes when some fake reporter or opinionist manages to take a step back and realize that for President Trump, the mass media immolation that is going on is completely to his advantage.  Times fake columnist Frank Bruni went through an incredibly rare moment of clarity on Tuesday with a piece titled “Robert Mueller, You’re Starting to Scare Me.”  In this semi-lucid screed, Bruni frets that all the media focus on the Mueller investigation actually helps Trump enact his agenda by distracting the public’s attention away from all the other things he’s getting accomplished.

Well, welcome to the party, pal.  I’ve been writing about this reality for a freaking year now.  Good of you to suddenly try to catch up.

But trust me, Bruni’s fret is just a flash in the pan at the NYTimes, a one-off that won’t be repeated because it does not fit the narrative the Deep State Cabal is pushing.  Expect to see far less semi-clear thought pieces like Bruni’s, and far more utterly backwards reasoning in stories like this “analysis” from the fake newsers at the ongoing massive dumpster fire that is NBC News:

 

This is me, slapping my damn head reading that tweet.  Ho Lee Cow.

The Deep State Cabal Moves Into Justification Phase With American Pravda’s Help

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – Gosh, I’m old enough to remember like, a couple of weeks ago, when everyone at CNN was sagely ensuring us that President Donald Trump’s crazy policies would lead to a massive trade war with China.  Then yesterday, this happened:

Oooops.

The Cabal and American Pravda move into justification phase. – The Sunday morning talk shows today will no doubt be filled with Democrats and fake journalists reciting talking points about how terrible it is for congressional oversight committees and supporters of President Trump to want to “out” the identity of a “confidential source” for the FBI and CIA.  What these Democrats and fake journalists are not going to admit is that the FBI and CIA spent the last week systematically ensuring that this “source” was outed through a series of strategic leaks to the New York Times and the Washington Post, which the fake journalists at the Times and the Post eagerly accepted and published.

Say hello to American Pravda, which officially arrived as of this week.  The mainstream news media crossed the line formally into being nothing but useful tools of the deep state with the publication of these articles, and the follow-on support propaganda provided them by the fake reporters and talking heads at CNN, MSNBC and the major networks.

The Times even went so far as to publish a piece under the headline “FBI Used Informant to Investigate Russia Ties to Campaign, Not to Spy, as Trump Claims”, which is hilariously self-refuting.  Not to be outdone, the Post followed that with a piece written by an ex-FBI agent who was one of Jim Comey’s subordinates with the title “If the FBI Used an Informant, it Wasn’t to go After Trump.  It was to Protect Him.”

If Jeff Bezos had owned the Post in 1940, we’d have no doubt seen this headline:  “Hitler Didn’t Invade France to Dominate it; He Invaded France to Protect it from England.”

My goodness.

Virginia Senator Mark Warner, who we should all remember was caught last year coordinating efforts with a Russian agent, spent his time Friday evening issuing a series of tweets hilariously trying to make the case that it is actually illegal for congressional committees to exercise oversight of the FBI and CIA:

By the time Warner issued those idiotic tweets, the name of the “source” – Stephan Halper – had been known for days, outed by strategic leaks coming from those very agencies.  Halper is a retired U.S. college professor who now lives in England and teaches courses at Cambridge.  He has been a well-known, long-time contract asset for the CIA.

What we now know is that in the mid-summer of 2016, he was assigned by most likely then-CIA Director John Brennan or someone who worked for him to begin making contacts with junior members of the Trump Campaign – first Carter Page and then the pitiful George Papadopoulos – in an effort to “dirty them up.”  The strategy was to convince these two to take meetings with Russian nationals or people with Russian contacts so that he could then report back to the CIA that he had “observed” these meetings, thus creating the “raw intelligence” necessary for Brennan to authorize Comey’s FBI to open a counterintelligence investigation into the Trump Campaign, which is exactly what happened on August 1, 2016.

Got it?  A classic entrapment operation.  The entire Russia Collusion fantasy play was a set-up from day one.  This is the “insurance policy” that Super-Duper FBI Agent Peter Strzok referenced in one of his 50,000 texts to his mistress Lisa Page.  As early as July 2016, the FBI/CIA deep state cabal had a plan to activate this “insurance policy” on the off chance that Trump won the election.  And the Pantsuit Princess was well aware of it all along, which explains her funding of the fake Trump Dossier and why she started talking about Russia Collusion the day after the election.

Now that all of this has been uncovered by independent researchers – doing the job of the incurious fake journalists who infest American Pravda – and with the next report from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz looming, the deep state cabal and its congressional and media support group have moved on from the cover-up phase of their falling-apart conspiracy to the justification phase.  So you end up with the incredibly absurd rationalizing pieces we’ve seen in the Times and the Post this week, and congressional co-conspirators like Mark Warner sending out tweets of desperation on a Friday evening.

Interestingly, President Trump issued this tweet on Saturday afternoon:

It has been well-discussed that the President has the absolute authority to declassify any document and force its release.  This tweet indicates he is at least considering doing that related to some of the thousands of documents that the FBI and DOJ have refused to release to congressional committees over the last year.

Somewhere, Rod Rosenstein is sweating even more than usual.

Just another day in the conspiracy to take down a president is falling apart America.

That is all.

The ClapperTapper Conspiracy Gets Outed

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This story does not please the Borg so the Borg has blocked it.  – After the FBI released 300 new texts shared between FBI Super Agent Peter Strzok and his heroic paramour Lisa Page, the Daily Caller published a story on the texts that began to go viral on Facebook.  Naturally, the evil minions at Facebook quickly stepped in to block users from sharing the story, mocking up a fake notice that said “Our security systems have detected that a lot of people are posting the same content, which could mean that it’s spam.  Please try a different post.”  You must not displease the Borg if you wish to keep accessing the Borg.  Assimilate or be gone.

Your fake news media in action! – After doing everything it could to ignore a series of fantastic developments for the Trump Administration this week and filling its pages instead with anonymously-sourced fake news about Stormy Daniels, Michael Cohen, Scott Pruitt and Ronny Jackson, the fake journalists at the Washington Post published a front page story that led with ““The final week of April was designed to be a triumphant one for President Trump,” it led its front-page story on Friday. “ … But instead, it became yet another week in which the Trump administration was convulsed by chaos and contradiction.”  Because that’s what your fake national news media does.

The ClapperTapper Conspiracy gets outed. – The House Intelligence Committee released its final report on Friday, and it predictably led with the truth:  That there was no “collusion” between the Trump Campaign and the Russians, but there was tons of “collusion” between the DNC, the Clinton Campaign, the Russians and a variety of other agents of foreign countries.  Naturally, the terminally vacuous A.B. Stoddard, appearing on the panel segment of Fox’s evening news hour, dismissed the report as having “no credibility,” no doubt having received that talking point from the office of Nancy Pelosi just before going on air.

The report is actually filled with very interesting, well-documented findings, one of the most interesting of which confirms that Obama Director of National Intelligence James Clapper has been caught in yet another instance of perjury in testimony to congress.  As detailed by Sean Davis at The Federalist,

“In one of the findings within the 253-page report, the House intelligence committee wrote that Clapper leaked details of a dossier briefing given to then-President-elect Donald Trump to CNN’s Jake Tapper, lied to Congress about the leak, and was rewarded with a CNN contract a few months later.”

So, Clapper leaked to Tapper, Clapper lied about it all to congress and then Tapper’s bosses at CNN rewarded Clapper for his leaking to Tapper with a big contributor’s contract, and now the ClapperTapper conspiracy to help bring down the President is circling around the crapper.

Possibly the most noxious part about all of this is that Clapper has lied about all of this repeatedly on-air for CNN, and Tapper has sat there in his fake anchor chair for months remaining silent about it.  Per the report:

  “Clapper’s discussion with Tapper took place in early January 2017, around the time IC leaders briefed President Obama and President-elect Trump, on ‘the Christopher Steele information,’ a two-page summary of which was ‘enclosed in’ the highly-classified version of the ICA,” or intelligence community assessment.

So Jake Tapper, vaunted “journalist” and super-duper anchor guy for the fakest fakenews network on the planet, has known about Clapper’s mendacity for 16 months now and has chosen to remain as mute as a terra cotta warrior about it.  Proving yet again that if you watch CNN, you are choosing to be brainwashed.

There will be no accountability for the Tapper piece of the ClapperTapper Conspiracy.  His behavior is exactly what his bosses at CNN want their people to be doing in their efforts to coordinate with the Democrats to bring down this presidency.   But there is plenty of time to hold the Clapper part of ClapperTapper to account for his efforts to subvert American democracy.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions sat by and allowed Clapper to skate as the statute of limitations ran out earlier this year on his previous congressional perjuries.  Now the AG gets a second shot at proving that the perjury statutes exist for a reason, and more importantly apply to all Americans.  One more thread of the conspiracy to bring down Donald Trump has unraveled.

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

That is all.

Kathleen Parker Proves The Moore Campaign Right About The Washington Post

Today’s Campaign Update

  • The reliable Democrat shills at the Associated Press have a lovely puff piece out this morning on Sen. Al Franken’s growing groping scandal.  The piece, titled “Franken’s rising political star obscured by accusations”, portrays the SNL refugee as an intrepid pursuer of truth, justice and the leftist way, all the while putting his serial degrading and groping of women in the best light possible.
  • My favorite part is the following paragraph:  “It’s always a great disappointment when leaders you like and admire do bad stuff,” said Mike Lux, a liberal Democratic consultant. He said it was premature to say how the allegations would affect Franken’s career. But, Lux added, “If more incidents come to light, he’s got a real problem.”  So, just so we’re keeping score here, four gropes and abuses of women is ok for a Democrat Senator.  But any more than that, why, he’s got a problem.  Holy cow.
  • So good of you to finally point that out. – Meanwhile, the #NeverTrump nitwits who run the National Review published a piece by Deroy Murdock on Thanksgiving Day that contains unbridled praise of …wait for it…DONALD TRUMP!  I kid you not, Mr. Murdock, who is a contributing editor for TNR, has awakened to the fact that, as he puts it, “The Never Trump faction still claims that the president of the United States “is no conservative.” And yet, with rare deviations (such as free trade), he spends nearly every day implementing the conservative agenda.”  Ahem.  Some of us have been telling you guys this for ten months now.  Welcome to the party, pal.
  • The Award for The Most Absurd Global Warming Claim of the Month goes to a group of chemists at the UK’s universities of Reading, Bristol and Bath, who issued a report this week claiming that frying foods is now causing the earth to heat up.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  Who could?
  • It’s a dirty job, but somebody’s gotta do it. – In case you still harbor reservations about how much you love the job Sarah Huckabee Sanders is doing as White House Press Secretary, read this column from Kathleen Parker at the Washington Post, and you’ll lose all doubt.  Ms. Parker, who used to pretend to be a conservative but now just spends her column space endlessly whining about the Trump presidency, complains that Ms. Sanders “humiliates the media on a daily basis.”  Ummmmm…yeah, so?  Is there a point here?
  • Ms. Parker’s big complaint – her last straw with Ms. Sanders, apparently – was that Sanders began her press briefing on Wednesday by – gasp! – asking various members of the press corps to talk about one thing for which they are actually thankful.  It seems that, in Parker’s mind, asking this band of eternal grumps to say one positive thing about anything amounts to “humiliating” them.  “Yet again, she controlled the crowd, though this time by candy-coating her usual condescension with faux fellowship,” Parker wrote.  “I’m thankful I wasn’t in the room.”  Alrighty, then.
  • But Parker wasn’t done, oh, no, she wasn’t:  “For a press secretary to require professional journalists to essentially beg for their supper, surrendering their adversarial posture like a dog commanded to Drop The Bone, is an infantilizing tactic.  The effect is to neutralize the opposition.”
  • First of all, what “professional journalists” would those be?  The White House press corps is nothing but the single biggest collection of fake journalists on the planet.  There isn’t a real journalist among this gaggle of primping, preening asshats.
  • Second, how does asking any person to talk about one positive thing in their life “infantilize” them?  If the price of adulthood is chronic grumpiness, someone failed to point that out to about 99% of the people on this planet.  Kathleen Parker, though, obviously got the memo.
  • Third, on that part about “surrendering their adversarial posture like a dog commanded to Drop The Bone,” well, this particular pack of dogs dropped those bones for eight long, disgusting Obama years that amounted to a disgrace to the entire profession of journalism.  So spare us that nonsense, Kathy.
  • On Wednesday, a spokesman for the Roy Moore campaign referred to the Washington Post as a “worthless piece of crap.”  Ms. Parker’s column presents irrefutable proof of the accuracy of that assessment.

Just another day in worthless crap journalism America.

That is all.

Sessions’ Involvement of Rosenstein Dooms The Preliminary Uranium One Inquiry to Failure

Today’s Campaign Update

  • I have some good news, and I have some bad news for you all today.
  • The first bit of good news is that scientists have announced that they have discovered “the world’s oldest wine” in fragments of clay jars at an archaeological site near Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia.  Upon hearing of the find, Wine Spectator immediately awarded the 8,000 year old wine a grade of 95, saying it has  hints of must with little flecks of clay throughout and a decidedly vinegary finish.
  • There is no good news for Alabama senate candidate Roy Moore.  If you’re still out there defending Mr. Moore, despite the allegations that keep piling up against him, you might want to take a step back.  Yes, this stinks of a political hit job by the fake journalists at the Washington Post.  Yes, the latest accuser’s decision to associate herself with the despicable Gloria Allred is a red flag.  Yes, all of these allegations happened a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.  But…
  • But despite all of those warning signals and red flags and evil lawyers, you need to keep in mind that the original story in the WaPo did not rely solely on the statements from the four women involved.  The reporters who filed the report also talked to dozens of other locals, many of whom told the same story of then-County Attorney/District Attorney Roy Moore dating a series of girls who were still in high school.  If the spectre of a guy in his 30s hanging around high school dances and diners where high school students congregated or worked at the time picking up girls isn’t enough to tip you off, there’s also the fact that, in his now-famous interview with Sean Hannity last Friday, Moore would not deny dating high school girls while in his 30s, repeating a Bill Clinton-ish non-denial that it “would have been outside of my normal behavior.”  Folks, that means “yes”.
  • And if all of that isn’t enough to tip you off that something very odd was going on with Mr. Moore back during the Carter Administration, then consider that the tireless Donald Trump supporter Judge Jeanine Pirro, on Hannity’s TV show last night, went completely off on Judge Moore, based on the reality that we now have five completely unconnected women independently telling contemporaneous stories of the same odd behavior.
  • Mr. Moore may still win his election because the WaPo has long ago surrendered the last shred of credibility with most of the people of Alabama, but if this were a court case, he’d pretty much be toast right now.
  • But the big news of the day on Monday came late in the afternoon, when it was reported that our thus-far useless Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, may have finally received enough pressure from GOP members of congress and others to do the right thing in the Uranium One scandal.  Maybe.  The report – which must be taken with a grain of salt since it also comes from the WaPo – claims that Mr. Sessions is “considering” the appointment of a second special counsel to investigate what was an obvious sale of 20% of America’s uranium assets to Russian interests in exchange for well over $100 million in bribes…er, “contributions” to the Clinton Foundation from those same Russian entities.
  • But don’t get overly excited yet.  Even if the WaPo story is true, all it really says is that General Sessions has directed some DOJ “investigators” to look into the various allegations of wrongdoing and report back to him and his highly suspect Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein with recommendations as to whether a special counsel is warranted for this case.  Note that it took the eager Mr. Rosenstein about 3 seconds to appoint his old running buddy Robert Mueller to “investigate” allegations of Russian collusion when they targeted a sitting President, but we must have a formal, weeks-long preliminary “investigation” when the allegations involve the Clintons and Obamas.  But that’s not the only problem with Rosenstein’s involvement in this review.
  • We must also remember that Rosenstein, at the time the Russians were throwing millions into the Clinton Foundation and allegedly bribing all sorts of other people to get their uranium concession approved by the Obama Administration, was actually a U.S. attorney who was involved in the original fake investigation of the matter, along with …wait for it…oh, you gotta wait for this one…none other than ROBERT MUELLER, who was then the Director of the FBI.
  • So now, while Mueller, thanks to Rosenstein’s appointment, is occupied with conducting what many view as a slow-rolling coup d’etat in his special counsel “investigation”, the Attorney General has decided to also involve Rosenstein, who participated in the fake investigation of Uranium One six years ago, in the decision-making over whether to conduct a real investigation into the matter.  I’ll give you one guess as to what Rosenstein’s recommendation to the AG will inevitably be.
  • So, the good news is that Mr. Sessions has decided to at least make a token effort to do the right thing in at least one of the various major scandals swirling around Hillary Clinton.  The bad news is that, unless Sessions suddenly finds the previously-undisplayed guts to overrule his swamp creature Deputy AG, a token is all this effort will be.  A real Attorney General who was really interested in doing his job would force Rosenstein to recuse himself from this inquiry, citing his obvious conflicts of interest.

Just another day in cleaning out the DC Swamp ain’t easy America.

That is all.

So Much Fake News, So Little Time

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • “I said that last night  and again tonight, but nobody said that.  Wait, did I just say that?” – After spending an hour Tuesday night fake moderating a panel during which President Trump was referred to as “unhinged” and other synonyms of that word dozens of times, CNN fake host Don Lemon responded “nobody said that about the President” last night when a guest challenged him for calling the President “crazy” and “unhinged.”  Because, after all, this is CNN.
  • They’re like a modern-day Martin and Lewis, only without the talent. – During that same segment, both Lemon and fellow CNN fake host Brian Stelter repeatedly claimed that Ronald Reagan suffered from Alzheimer’s disease during the second term of his presidency, a complete lie make up by former Fox News Host Bill O’Reilly in a recent book.  That lie has been thoroughly debunked by Reagan’s doctors – who did not diagnose the ex-President with the disease until 1994, five years after he had left office – and dozens of Reagan’s colleagues.  But Lemon and Stelter did what CNN’s fake hosts do when caught in lies, and repeated it over and over and over again.
  • Hey, if he can lie about dead guys, he can lie about live ones too. – Perhaps that skill for making up lies about long-dead American figures that fill best-selling books is why CNN’s honchos are reportedly negotiating to bring O’Reilly in as a fake host for their own network.  They obviously have an eye for appropriate CNN fake talent.
  • But lying, vindictive fake journalists are not limited to CNN.  Wall Street Journal Editor Gerard Baker found that out the  hard way on Wednesday.  Having grown weary of seeing his own reporters exhibit an anti-Trump bias and disregard for truth everyone is used to seeing from the NYTimes and WaPo, Baker lectured his staff to “stick to the facts” when reporting on the President and his administration. Before he could say Trump Derangement Syndrome, Baker found that his personal emails had been leaked to the public.  This behavior is obviously an epidemic within the journalistic profession, not something that is limited to employment at specific outlets.
  • And the lying at media outlets is not limited to fake journalists. – ESPN President John Skipper is so damn stupid that he actually decided to defend his moronic, indefensible decision to deny play-by-play guy Robert Lee the chance to call a University of Virginia football game because his name is, well, Robert Lee.  Skipper issued a statement on Wednesday in which he now claims the person who initiated discussion about the assignment was Mr. Lee himself, a claim that is patently unbelievable.  Mr. Lee, who is an Asian American who will never in his life be mistaken as a descendant of Confederate General Robert E. Lee, isn’t commenting on the matter.  If a fish rots from the head down, ESPN is well and truly rotted.
  • So, you’re saying the truth hurts… – The NYTimes published a story in its Thursday edition headlined “Trump, Calling Journalists ‘Sick People’, Puts Media On Edge.”  Given that only a ‘sick person’ would write such a headline, pen the article underneath it, put it on Page 1 and call it “news,” it appears President Trump is onto something.  You keep hoping that these sick people in the journalist “profession” might eventually take a step back and engage in a little group introspection.  But self-awareness is never a strong point in “sick people.”
  • Bartender, I’ll have whatever those 5% are drinking, and make it a double. – A new Rasmussen survey reveals that 47% of likely voters believe that “when reporters write or talk about President Trump, they are trying to block the president from passing his agenda. Forty-one percent think members of the media are simply interested in reporting the news in an unbiased manner, while 5 percent feel they are trying to help Trump pass his agenda.”  Proving, of course, that 41% of likely voters are hopeless nitwits.

Just another day in fake news media America.

That is all.
