Larry Schweikart: All the Times the Corrupt Media Pronounced Trump Dead

Guest Piece by America’s History Teacher, Larry Schweikart

[Note: Larry Schweikart, historian and author of the wonderful book “Reagan: The American President,” put up an excellent thread on Twitter last night, in which he takes the reader down memory lane. The thread chronicles many of the hundreds of times Democrats and their toadies in the corrupt, fake news media pronounced “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.”

Think of how many times you have heard some talking head on cable TV make that statement. Trump has been pronounced dead so many times by so many nitwits that he is the envy of every alley filled with 9-lived cats. Below is Mr. Schweikart’s (@larryschweikart on Twitter) rapid-fire listing of many of the most epic examples, as only he can do it.]

1) As promised, a very long thread that I will Threadreader asap. But it’s important to review the constant, unending, perpetual claims that “it’s over for Drumpf” and “we’ve got him now.”

2) This is in light of the China Virus-It is real but it is also one of those “Good crises that go to waste” for DemoKKKrats & Hoax News media. So I am not misunderstood, Hoax Newsers/DemoKKKrats did not create/ invent the China Virus, but they are doing their best to exploit it.

3) So, let’s do a little trip down memory lane. Some of this comes from my “How Trump Won” with @joelpollak.

4) The first “gotcha” moment came in Iowa in July 2018 when Trump, asked a question about John McTurd–who had criticized him–replied that McTurd was a “war hero because he was captured . . . I like people that weren’t captured.” Supposedly this constituted Trump disparaging . .

4) contd . . all POWs & even the military. Immediately pundits & GOP elites said it was over for Trump. (“Trump crosses one line too many” blared Hot Air) Many reveled in thinking Trump had ended his campaign. Marco Rubio (Rubes) said the comment should be “a disqualifier . . .

4) contd . . as a commander in chief.”

Not so fast: Trump refused to apologize (which won him respect from people sick of Republicans apologizing for anything & everything) then pivoted to McTurd’s pathetic record on veterans.

5) The rapid spread of the story about 32-year-old Kate Steinle’s murder by an illegal in California brushed the McTurd story off the news. Blind Lemon Don grilled Trump on his comments about illegals “raping” but Trump had the last laugh:

5) contd . . “somebody’s doing the raping . . . . Who’s doing the raping?” Trump asked. Blind Lemon had no answer. By July 20 Trump took the lead in the GOP primary polling.

6) Except for a span of a few days in October, when Ben Carson slightly polled ahead of Trump, he never lost the poll lead throughout the nomination process.

7) Enter the “experts.” Karl Rove said Trump “won’t win” the nomination; George Will said Trump would be a disaster in the debates; Vox ran a piece saying Trump was “surging,” then reassured its readers “Here’s why He Won’t Win.”

7) contd . . Ross Douthat of the NYSlimes said “Donald Trump will not be the Republican nominee.” WaCompost editor James Downie: “Let’s dispose of the notion that Trump has a real shot at winning in Nov.” HuffPo: “Trump will not win the general election.” More?

7) Karl Rove: “Trump can’t win the general election.” Sean Trende: “There’s probably a 90% chance Trump loses.” The (Commie) Nation: “Relax, Donald Trump can’t win.” And our buddy Fat Frank Luntz: “Hillary Clinton will be the next President” (on election night!)

8) By August 2015, in public while all the GOP elites were saying Trump couldn’t win, @RushLimbaugh discussed story about big donors who were telling all the other candidates to do what it took to “Take Trump Out.”

9) In that debate Trump was the only candidate who refused to say he would back the party nominee if he didn’t win. To the GOPe that was horrifying. To mainstream Republicans looking at a repeat of a McTurd or Minion candidacy with Yeb (“low energy”) Bush, this was a good sign.

10) Trump had singlehandedly pushed illegal immigration onto the front burner: one project tracing the number of media “mentions” found that stories about illegals doubled after Trump.

11) By that time, among national voices only Rush and @scottadamssays caught onto Trump’s dominance of the news cycle, which cost him nothing. Meanwhile, competitors burned through their money.

12) So-called conservative voices ramped up their attacks. Rich Lowry called Trump “a loudmouth mogul,” Fox News routinely criticized Trump—but none of his opponents—and GOP Party Chairman Reince Priebus (“Rinse and Repeat”) said “Donald Trump [is not] the Republican brand.”

12) contd . . .That was music to the ears of many who were sick of the “Republican brand.” Ari Fleischer said Trump was a “risk for the party” by tarnishing every Republican.

13) No sooner did Trump critics claim he had no”meat” in his proposals (a fact that ended Ross Perot’s boomlet in 1992), Trump produced a widespread immigration reform plan with specific policy proposals.

14) By then some were admitting Trump might win the Iowa caucuses. Even then, they ignored the social media dominance that Trump wielded: he had almost 4mm Twitter followers, compared to Clinton’s 4+ million followers. (Later, one third of Clinton’s were found to be bots).

14) contd . . Trump’s weekly Twitter growth exceeded that of four of his main competitors combined. Trump gained about 400,000 followers a week in late 2015.

15) By then also, Trump was holding massive rallies of 15,000-20,000 people. No Republican & only Dinobernie Sanders could ever approach those numbers. At the end of October, Trump yielded the polling lead to Carson—who quickly crashed.

16) Next Trump raised the question about Muslim loyalty to the US. When the Hoax News/GOPe jumped on him, Trump claimed there were “thousands” of Muslims shown on TV celebrating 9/11. (Fact Check: True). Hoax News media had deliberately downplayed those celebrations . . .

16) contd . . in an effort to portray the majority of Muslims as “just like us.” Then tapes surfaced proving Trump’s claims.

17) Increasingly, by November 2015, it looked as though only the nearly-equally hated Ted Cruz could stop Trump. Cruz had made enemies out of the establishment with his one man government shutdown for a time under the Obama (Zero) Administration.

18) Then some amazing polls started to come out: Trump was viewed by black & Hispanic Republicans more favorably than any other candidate including Yeb & Rubes who pandered to them.

18) contd . . . Stories examining Trump’s support found it was across the board; young, old, men, women, college-educated and non-college educated.

19) Only two years later did analysis show that college education had little to do with opposition to Trump, but the location of the college educated Republican (i.e., big city vs non-big city). Naturally, this analysis did NOT come from GOPe insiders like Jay Cost or Adrian Gray

20. Having resigned themselves to the fact that Trump would indeed win a lot of primaries, Hoax News and the GOPe insiders now fell back to their next position, that Trump couldn’t reach the 1,237 delegate number for the nomination.

20) contd . . (My own analysis in late Feb. 2016 showed Trump would win close to 1,300 delegates. He actually got closer to 1,400).

21) Then came the next “This is it for Drumpf”. After an article from the National Enquirer about Ted Cruz cheating appeared, Cruz blamed Trump. A PAC associated with Cruz in Utah ran an ad on Melania Trump citing her days as a lingerie model.

21) contd . . The incident was enough to get Cruz Wisconsin & raised hopes he and Ohio’s John Kasich could somehow unite to deny Trump the delegates.

22) Perhaps more important, Cruz had begun poaching Trump’s committed delegates trying to persuade them to switch. This led Trump to counter by firing Corey Lewandowski and bringing in Paul Manafort.

23) Manafort had one job and one job only: secure the nomination from the “insiders.” He did it well. Make no mistake: without Manafort, Trump wouldn’t be president.

24) All hopes of defeating Trump within the primary process ended after a Cruz loss in Indiana.”We left it all on the field,” a dejected Cruz said.

25) Next up in the “This is it for Drumpf” was the notion that Trump would spit the GOP. Didn’t happen. A few pungerpuckers like Bill (Broken) Kristol and David FrenchFry threw tantrums, but most Republicans lined up to defeat Cankles.

26) What ensued was the most criminal, unethical, and fraudulent use of “news” and “polling” in American history. I’ve been over their tactics before. What Hoax News & Hoax Polling did not realize was that by lying perpetually and universally about Trump . . .

26) contd . . they ended all claims to legitimacy they ever had. Republicans never believed them. After November, neither would DemoKKKrats.

A whole book needs to be written on this whoring of polling & the Hoax News media and its effect on real news.

27) One of the next major steps for Trump was to ditch Manafort. First, charges were coming out that he was dirty and tied to Ukraine. Second, however—even unknown to Trump—he needed a different type of campaign for the stretch. Enter Kellyanne Conway and Steve Bannon.

27) contd . . Just as Trump needed Manafort at the right moment, he needed Bannon and Conway at the right moment. But the foundation for the campaign was Brad Parscale and Jared Kushner—Mr. #s and Mr. $$.

28) By mid-October, Trump was hitting on all cylinders, while Cankles was often hitting the pavement. To this day, no one knows what was wrong with her, but her failing health and uninspiring persona had her falling behind Trump (again, despite Hoax Polling).

29) An internal poll shared with me by Bannon in the first week of October had Trump winning & had him VERY close in Rhode Island (!), Oregon, and Illinois. I was so stunned I asked Bannon if those numbers were right. He confidently said yes.

30) Then, Oct. 9, just before the debate, came the “Access Hollywood” video–the latest “This will finish Drumpf” move. While it likely cost him New Hampshire and Minnesota–and possibly the popular vote–it flushed through the system before it could do permanent damage.

31) Next up was the election, then the immediate post-election stories that Trump would resign before the inauguration. I still don’t know where those stories came from, except Pence was always elevated in these stories.

32) As inauguration neared, next up was the “Trump will resign soon. He really never intended to govern.”

33) Then came the shocker: Sessions recused himself & Rat Rosenstein signed off on the Special Counsel to look at the “muh Russia” collusion campaign hatched by Cankles.

34) That led to the “It’s Mulehead Time” & claims Mulehead’s band of flagellating phonies would “take down Drumpf.”

35) Next in the “Get Drumpf” lineup: Porny Daniels, who turned out to have nothing. She was aided and abetted by “the next president,” Michael Avenatti.

35) contd . . He soon found himself facing a felony conviction for extortion from Nike. Avenatti was held in jail awaiting sentencing—the man who (it was thought) “would put Drumpf in jail.”

36) On October 27, 2017, Manafort was indicted. “Now we’re gonna get Drumpf.” Except not. Manafort never gave Mulehead or his team any info, despite massive jail sentences.

37) That same month, Omarosa resigned touting in her book Unhinged (which must have referred to herself) that she had “secret tapes” of Trump using racial language. Except she didn’t. Though she may have violated the Espionage Act in releasing a tape, she is still not in jail.

38) In May 2018, the “Now we got Drumpf” loonies indicted Michael Cohen & raided his offices. Whackadoodle Libs (WLs) were SURE that he & all the files/computers the FBI seized would be the silver bullet.

38) contd . . Now, with Avenatti, Cohen became the second one who was gonna “be the one to get Drumpf” who himself ended up in jail. Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison for tax evasion & campaign finance violations.

39) In March 2019, the Whackadoodle Lefties’ wet dream, the Mulehead Report, was released—except there was nothing in it. Despite what you may read on the Satanic Wikipedia, the report proved no Russkie Collusion. It so disappointed the WLs they dragged . . .

39) contd . . the senile Mulehead into Congressional Testimony, where he stammered, stalled, and failed to provide one single damning piece of evidence. WLs were beside themselves. Their “sure thing” to get Drumpf had blown up in their faces.

40) In July 2019, using a leaked “whistleblower” (i.e., traitor) report of irregularities in a phone call between Ukraine (note: not “muh Russia” any more but Russia’s ENEMY!), Congress began an investigation centered on Lt. Col. Veeta Vita Vindman.

40) contd . . Since Mulehead had collapsed, this was the only thing the now-DemoKKKrat-controlled House could concoct. They came up with two articles of impeachment.

41) In December 2019, the utterly corrupt Congress approved the articles on “abuse of power” and “obstruction of Congress” (a term that doesn’t even exist in the Constitution.) The Senate rightly voted these two down 52-48 and 53-47. Only one so-called Republican, . . .

41) contd . . Minion Romney, voted for either. Soon thereafter, the traitorous Veeta Vita Vindman and ambassador Gordon Sondland were given the boot.

42) And finally, there was the “Trump will never run for reelection.” Oddly, Trump filed for a reelect committee in 2017, almost immediately after winning the first time. This time, he has raised more money, & faces a far weaker opponent, while having made more inroads . . .

42) contd . . with black and Hispanic voters since 2016.

And WLs think the China Virus or blue-state lockdowns are gonna get Drumpf now?

43) Trump will be reelected with between 320 and 340 electoral votes in 2020, likely winning the pop vote by a significant margin.

But Demented Biteme could turn those numbers into an even bigger margin for Trump.

Don’t bet against him.

March 25 Was the BEST MONDAY EVER for Trump and his Supporters

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

Why did Monday ever have to end?  – Monday must have felt like a birthday, Christmas and Festivus all rolled up into one for President Donald Trump and the White House staff, as the good news started early in the morning and continued to pour in all day long.

Throughout the day, of course, they all got to watch as a parade of news-faking cretins flittered across their TV screens, vainly trying to concoct a rationalization for why they have been lying to their viewers and fans for more than two years as they promoted the Democrats’ “Russia Collusion” fantasy play. From Morning Joe and Mika and Donny Deutsch, to the despicable hack Carl Bernstein, to the contemptible Andrew Napolitano, to the seditious – no, make that treasonous – John Brennan, to the terminally unfunny and odious Stephen Colbert, with dozens of other circus clowns and cranks sprinkled liberally in between, the cascade of disgraced nitwits, dupes and just plain old liars was glorious.

As if that weren’t cause enough for joy in Trump Land, shortly after noon came the news that the Creepy Porn Lawyer had been indicted and arrested on charges of extortion and mail fraud. Yes, friends, the guy who everyone at MSNBC and CNN spent half of 2018 touting as a legitimate contender for the Democrats’ presidential nomination in 2020 due solely to the fact that he represented a porn star has been caught red-handed, as the Justice Department released damning telephone transcripts that show him explicitly blackmailing Nike for $25 million. Thus, a major tormentor of the President appears likely to soon be headed for the pokey.

But it got even better. It turns out that the Creepy Porn Lawyer’s alleged partner in this extortion plot is none other than attorney and – until yesterday – paid CNN “legal analyst” Mark Geragos. Yes, that Mark Geragos, the selfsame Mark Geragos whose most prominent current client happens to be …wait for it…oh, you have to wait for this one…JUSSIE SMOLLETT!!!!!

Yes, friends and neighbors, that would be the very same actor Jussie Smollett who is currently facing prison time of his own for creating an outrageous hoax in an effort to smear the President and everyone who supports him. That Jussie Smollett.

I swear I do not make this stuff up. The greatest, most imaginative fiction writer in world history could not in a million years make this stuff up.

But things just kept getting better and better all day long, as a seemingly endless stream of positive news stories for the President and his 2020 re-election ambitions came across the wire.  Here are some examples:

  • In Texas, all House Democrats boycotted a committee hearing on a bill that would …wait for it…OUTLAW INFATICIDE. Yeah, that’s not gonna play well with Texas voters next year.
  • Two-term New Mexico Senator Tom Udall announced he would not stand for re-election in 2020, opening up the seat for a strong GOP challenge.
  • Trump appeals court nominee Bridget Bade received a favorable cloture vote in the senate, paving the way for her to become the President’s 37th addition to the federal appellate courts, an all-time record for a first term president.
  • Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced the scheduling of a Senate vote on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s hair-brained, economy-destroying “Green New Deal”, which Democrats had been desperate to avoid since it will force them to go on-record.
  • Education Secretary Betsy DeVoss announced that DOE has opened investigations into eight universities tied to the still-unfolding college admissions and bribery scandal.
  • While the Democrat Party remains mired in a slipperly-slope towards rank anti-Semitism, President Trump held a White House ceremony with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in which he formally recognized the Golan Heights as part of Israel.
  • To cap the day off, the Pentagon announced that it has formally authorized the transfer $1 billion to kick-start the building of the southern border wall.

It was, for this President and his supporters, the Best Monday Ever.

Let’s hope today is the Best Tuesday Ever. Might as well start a new trend.

That is all.

Halloween on Twitter: Political Mayhem, Fake News Zombies and Belly Laughs

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

One of my Twitter followers sent me a private message today asking “how can you vote for some of these Republicans?” Seriously? You have to ask me that?

My answer was very simple: “Because they aren’t Democrats.” That was several hours ago, and I haven’t heard back from this person. Frankly, I expect she will un-follow me by the end of the day.

But look, why would I or any other thinking person ever vote for another Democrat? It’s a serious question. This is a political party that has over the last three years done everything it can to normalize the most reprehensible anti-American behaviors.

From shooting up Republican softball practices to accosting septuagenarians and their wives in restaurants to Antifa goons beating up people on the streets to CNN talk show hosts dog-whistling approval of potential presidential assassins to rounding up women to try to destroy the family and life of a Supreme Court nominee, if they think it might gain them even a momentary political advantage, Democrats are for it no matter how dangerous, destructive, depraved and despicable it might be.

I’m going to vote for that?  Really?  No, thanks.

Nor am I going to cast a vote to take this country back to the overregulated, moribund economy we had prior to November 9, 2016. I’m not going to vote to lop 25% off of the Dow Jones Industrial Average and 2% off of our economic growth rate. I’m not going to vote to put our country back into an irresponsible, un-American agreement with the Mullahs in Iran, or to re-engage us in a Paris “Climate” deal that was really nothing but a global wealth redistribution scheme targeting the American middle class.

Sorry, I’m not down with any of that, and I never will be.

And don’t try to convince me that I can vote for some particular Democrat for congress because he/she would get to Washington and be an “independent voice for Texas” or whatever other nonsense Democrats like Irish Bob O’Rourke are using in their campaign ads.  Give me a break here.  Irish Bob would get to Washington and become the third senator from California.  He’d be Chuck Schumer’s most reliable vote in the U.S. Senate.

Likewise, any Democrat who gets elected to the House of Representatives will be so bullied around by Nancy Pelosi within their first 2 weeks in D.C. that they’ll have literally forgotten where their congressional district even is, much less do anything effective to represent it.

Anyway, that was the bad part of Twitter today, but there was all sorts of fun on that platform as well.  Here follows a selection of the best examples of the day.

 

It’s a great question, and I’m glad Sara Carter asked it:

Speaking of great questions, Mollie Hemingway asks another one here…:

 

Hey, remember when Netflix signed that deal with the Obamas that allows them to produce series for its streaming platform?  Well, guess who their first target is going to be…:

And speaking of things nobody could have possibly seen coming…:

Desperate losing Sen. Claire McCaskill explains who she meant when she claimed in an ad to not be “one of those crazy Democrats,” and the crazy Democrat she specified responds in unambiguous and profane terms.:

Yikes. That particular crazy Democrat has some bite.

Speaking of moves being made by desperate losing Democrats, I give you Ed Donnelly of Indiana.:

There is literally no content too low and despicable for CNN to spew out onto its platform.:

By the way, Mr. Lemon’s boyfriend is white, and radical.

The Alexandria Ocasio Cortez parody account responds, but if you didn’t know it was a parody, you’d totally believe it was something she’d actually said:

 

No day on Twitter could ever be complete without making fun of the Creepy Porn Lawyer.:

Finally, while CNN and MSNBC were misleading their viewers into thinking President Donald Trump was greeted by nothing but protesters and haters on his trip to Pittsburgh to visit with Synagogue shooting survivors, you had to be on Twitter to see the truth:

Just another day of highs, lows and belly laughs on Twitter.

That is all.

Time to Call the Vote or Just Surrender, Mitch

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

So much hypocrisy, so little time. – It would be impossible to detail all the rank hypocrisy coming from the political left related to the Kavanaugh nomination right now, but this tweet from Moveon.org just cannot go unmentioned:

For all you Millennials out there who are too young to remember, Moveon.org’s name LITERALLY refers to the one and only reason for its creation in the late 1990s, which was to use Saul Alinsky tactics to convince the public to “just move on” from Bill Clinton’s serial sexual abuses. LITERALLY.

Ok, one more breathtakingly disgusting tweet from a leftist organization that cannot go unmentioned:

That’s right, friends, the demented creeps at Amnesty International want you all to believe that Brett Kavanaugh is actually, in his spare time, a budding Saddam Hussein.  Holy crap.

 

The Creepy Porn Lawyer is frustrated. – Speaking of demented creeps, Michael Avenatti was on Twitter on Monday complaining that his emails to the lead counsel for the Senate Judiciary Committee, Mike Davis were not getting returned in a timely manner.  Someone really should let this guy know that the congressional email system automatically shoves any incoming emails whose IP address is Creepy.Porn.Lawyer.1 over to the spam folder.

But the Creepy Porn Lawyer is coming, and apparently a whole string of exactly who you’d expect are coming with him (no puns intended). – Avenatti’s latest story keeps changing, which is not surprising coming from this greasy carnival barker.  He started it off with the following tweet on Sunday:

But last night, in an interview on – guess where? – CNN, which is always willing to accommodate any anti-Trump hack who wants his face on national TV, the Creepy Porn Lawyer claimed to have “multiple” women willing to claim that Mr. Kavanaugh engaged in all sorts of sexual shenanigans while in college.  He further pledged to start bringing them forward – no doubt also on CNN – within the next 48 hours.  So, just in time to pre-empt the hearing scheduled for Thursday at which both Kavanaugh and accuser Christine Ford are supposedly going to testify.

Gosh, what a coincidence, right?

So, we now have the Democrats’ game fully laid out for all to see, and it goes like this:

  • Find some initial accuser willing to smear Kavanaugh and also willing to pretend to be willing to testify under oath;
  • Derail the scheduled process by insisting that the first accuser cannot possibly be ready to testify by Monday, Sept. 24, and demand a later hearing;
  • Once you get that later hearing scheduled, then issue a constantly-changing set of demands that you know Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley will not meet, because your client has no intention of ever testifying under oath and potential felony charges for perjury;
  • As the new hearing date approaches, get another accuser who also has no earthly intention of testifying under oath out in front of the public to create confusion and place further pressure on Kavanaugh and cowardly senate RINOs Republicans like Jeff Flake and Susan Collins;
  • As the second accuser’s story is being systematically shown to be an outright fraud that is even too fake for the freaking New York Times to run, bring out the Creepy Porn Lawyer to up the pressure with even more absurd and salacious claims against the nominee;
  • All the while, have your depraved and evil Democrat senators like Dianne Feinstein and that brain-dead nitwit from Hawaii all over TV insisting that the Thursday hearing be cancelled because you know your “witness” has no intention of showing up for it.

This is classic Saul Alinsky Rules for Radicals 101.  You have to give the Democrats credit – this bit of evil destruction of a good man’s reputation and life has been extremely well-coordinated.  The obvious effort is to create such a high degree of confusion that the average member of the public cannot possibly figure out what the truth is and ultimately gets to the point where they all say “enough!  stop this madness!” and the nomination gets pulled by its sponsors.

As we sit here this morning, there is no real way to know with certainty if the Democrats and their fake news media wall of propaganda will achieve their end goals, but the GOP’s foolish efforts to pretend their accusers are acting in good faith (they aren’t) and negotiating with their extremely expensive lawyers moves the ball forward for the bad guys with each passing day.

Majority Leader McConnell can make all the tough floor speeches he wants (he made a pretty good one on Monday), but until he calls an end to this circus and forces a vote on the nomination, he is playing directly into the Democrats’ twisted, gnarled hands.

In the end, McConnell, Grassley and the Senate Republicans are either going to have to take a stand and force a vote, or ask Kavanaugh and President Trump to pull the nomination.  Had they done what they should have done and gone forward with the scheduled committee vote yesterday, they could be holding the final vote tomorrow.

The Senate Rs appear to be living under an illusion that if they just keep negotiating and compromising, their Democrat “colleagues” will ultimately start behaving reasonably and the pressure will relent.  This is insanity and frankly stupid.  In fact, the Democrats will only continue increasing the pressure and bringing more and more accusers out of the woodwork to make increasingly outrageous claims.

When it becomes obvious to even the most clueless GOP senate members late on Wednesday that Ms. Ford is not going to show up for Thursday’s hearing, McConnell and Grassley need to simply schedule a vote.  If that doesn’t happen, then this nomination is dead, and our constitutionally-guaranteed rights to the presumption of innocence and to face one’s accusers are dead along with it.

It really is that simple.

That is all.
