Monday News Roundup: A New Vaccine and a New Biden-Related Voter Fraud Scam

Just a reminder that this man literally created, supplied and armed ISIS and authorized thousands of drone killings in the Middle East. Liberals think he’s wonderful:

This seems like a big deal:

Would have been good to know about this before the elections, dudes. But hey, I’m sure that it’s just a coincidence that this comes out 13 days after.

From the Mediaite Story:

Biotechnology firm Moderna has announced that their experimental vaccine is showing a very high level of effectiveness for protecting people from the coronavirus. This news follows a similar announcement from Pfizer about their Covid-19 vaccine, but the Moderna vaccine is now expected to remain stable at standard refrigerator temperatures of 2° to 8°C (36° to 46°F) for 30 days, up from the previous estimate of 7 days.

The company announced that their early data analysis shows their vaccine has a 94.5 percent effectiveness against Covid-19. CNN reports that Moderna received its results on Sunday while on call with the Data Safety and Monitoring Board, which has been overseeing their clinical data.

“It’s extremely good news. If you look at the data, the numbers speak for themselves,” Dr. Anthony Fauci said in a response gathered by Washington Post. “I describe myself as a realist, but I’m fundamentally a cautious optimist. I felt we’d likely get something less than this. … I said certainly a 90-plus-percent effective vaccine is possible, but I wasn’t counting on it.”

[End]

As I discuss elsewhere this morning, we can have a dozen effective vaccines and it won’t make a damn bit of difference to the Little Menace to Society, Anthony Fauci. He’s determined to keep us all wearing masks and pretending that social distancing works forever – the new normal in which he is the ultimate arbiter of how the government continues controlling our lives. Read it.

That’s why the Trump challenges that will be moving forward in the courts this week are so crucial. – After a weekend of pure hype from Trump lawyers Rudy Giuliani, Lin Wood, Jenna Ellis and Sidney Powell, the cases they have filed in state and federal courts challenging the election results in a half dozen states will begin being heard this week. While the need for a PR assault in an effort such as this is certainly understandable, this weekend was a case of too much in too short a time.

Worse, the rhetoric coming from these lawyers doesn’t really do much to increase confidence that they are truly prepared to make convincing cases in court. Giuliani in particular places almost all of his emphasis on witness testimony providing “proof” that elections were stolen using the Dominion systems. But if witness testimony is all they have, they are wasting their and the court’s time.

If these lawyers are not able to present cases filled with forensic proof that the election was indeed manipulated and demonstrate clearly how it all worked, then these lawsuits aren’t going to change a thing. They are going to be asking judges to put their lives and the remainder of their careers in personal jeopardy by issuing decisions that change the media-promoted outcomes in half a dozen states. No judge is going to be willing to do that based on the testimony of one or a thousand individuals.

Vague allegations that Dominion was created by Hugo Chavez and is partly-owned by China will not be enough: They must be able to show – clearly and unambiguously – that this system was manipulated in a way that literally changed the outcomes in states where the official counts show Biden ahead by 150,000 votes (Michigan), 60,000 votes (Pennsylvania) and 15,000 votes (Georgia).

That’s a very tall order, and the Trump legal team has only had slightly less than two weeks to put these cases together. None of this is to doubt the validity of the allegations that are being made: This election was stolen without any real question at all. But proving that in court in such a way that a judge or panel of judges are compelled to issue a radical, precedent-setting remedy – which is what they would be – is a different thing entirely.

The best advice for all of us is to hope for the best, and prepare for the worst.

The fake news never ends. – After the Trump team amended is complaint in Pennsylvania for clarity, striking one of several paragraphs that detail the fact that GOP election observers were denied access to vote counts in Philadelphia and other Democrat-run cities, the corrupt news media jointly ran with a fake story that the complaint had been dropped.

It hadn’t:

But don’t expect any corrections from the WaPo or New York Times or CNN or MSNBC or any of the myriad other fake news outlets who pushed that false story. Because faking the news is what they do and who they are. It’s in their DNA.

Meanwhile, here’s another very plausible story about massive election fraud helping Joe Biden that none of the corrupt national outlets are covering, because of course they aren’t.

From the story at The Buffalo Chronicle:

The innermost circles of the American mafia are abuzz.  The Boss of the Philly mob — ‘Skinny Joey’ Merlino — is taking a victory strut, hobnobbing around the highest echelons of old-time mafia folk, mostly in Florida, describing what may have been the heist of the century: the 2020 presidential election.

The feat is drawing praise from far-flung corners of the Italian American business community, which sees the thanks of a grateful administration as key to the revival of the community’s political influence.

But an associate says that Merlino might just be willing to flip on Joe Biden and the Pennsylvania political operatives who ordered up some 300,000 election ballots marked for Biden.  The source alleges that Merlino and a lean team of associates manufactured those ballots at a rate of $10 per ballot — a whopping $3 million for three days of work.  They were then packaged into non-descript cardboard boxes and dropped off outside the Philadelphia Convention Center.

Sources who spoke to The Chronicle on the condition of anonymity say that Merlino picked up those ballots from two private households where a trusted handful of associates were busily marking ballots with Sharpie markers.  They were paid more than $1,000 per hour, often producing thousands of ballots every hour for more than 60 nearly-consecutive hours.

[End]

This is, of course, the kind of old-fashioned voter fraud that Democrats have been practicing in big inner-cities from time immemorial. It’s exactly the kind of mob operation that got John F. Kennedy elected in 1960, the kind that got Lyndon Johnson elected to the U.S. senate in 1948, albeit on a much smaller scale. Should Merlino flip, it would be the ultimate irony, given that Biden won his first race for U.S. Senator in 1972 with the voter fraud help of the Philly mob and the Teamsters Union.

We still have a long way to go here, folks. Just be patient.

That is all.

Biden Green Jobs Promises: An Epic Fail Waiting to Happen

On February 17, 2009 – less than one month into their first term – then-President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden both flew to Colorado to sign their $787 billion stimulus package into law. They had decided to move the signing venue from Washington, D.C. to Denver in order to emphasize the green-jobs provisions contained in the legislation. Remember, this was at a time when the Democratic Party controlled not just the executive branch of government, but also held super majorities in both houses of congress. They could basically do whatever they wanted, and this is what they chose to do.

As point man on the bill, Biden helped message the Democrats’ stimulus package as a green-jobs creator, promising it would create over 5 million jobs such jobs. The Obama/Biden commitment at the time was all about the creation of a new, “clean energy” economy and “green jobs” similar to what Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and Bernie Sanders promise today as a part of their “Green New Deal,” although they’ve dressed their $90 Trillion package up with more aggressive terms like “environmental catastrophe” and “climate justice.”

It’s all the same plot today – same actors, new title, updated talking points.

So, how did that Obama/Biden “Green Jobs” plan work out for us? A few years later, Obama/Biden’s own Department of Labor issued four reports on the Green Jobs Program. The first report, issued in September of 2011, was titled “Recovery Act: Slow Pace Placing Workers into Jobs Jeopardizes Employment Goals of the Green Jobs Program.” Its findings were quite telling:

 

  •  Nearly three-fourths of the way through the anticipated time frame, only 1/3rd of the allotted funding had been expended;
  • Just 42% of the desired 124,000+ participants had even been signed up for the program’s training in “green jobs”;
  • Half of the training programs provided five or fewer days of training. Hardly a robust training for a full career;
  • Over twenty percent of the “degrees” and certificates went to people with only one day of training; and
  • Only 1,336 participants retained employment for at least 6 months, a miniscule 2 percent of the targeted employment retention of 69,717 participants.

Wednesday News Roundup: China Scientist Drops a Bombshell and DOJ Convenes a Bolton Grand Jury

Let’s all remember that Anthony Fauci and Bill Gates and Barack Obama directed hundreds of millions to this lab and its “research”. – Last night, Tucker Carlson interviewed a Chinese virologist named Dr. Li-Meng Yan. Ms. Yan worked at the WHO reference lab in Hong Kong, one of the top research labs on earth, during the time the China Virus was released from the virology research lab outside of Wuhan.

She told Carlson that the China Virus was created in that lab and the release of the Virus was committed intentionally by the Chinese communist government.

From a story at Fox News:

Carlson specifically asked Dr. Li-Meng Yan whether she believed the Chinese communist party released the virus “on purpose.” “Yes, of course, it’s intentionally,” she responded on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

Yan said more evidence would be released but pointed to her own high-ranking position at a World Health Organization reference lab as a reason to trust her allegation.

“I work[ed] in the WHO reference lab which is the top coronavirus lab in the world, in the University of Hong Kong. And the thing is I get deeply into such investigation in secret from the early beginning of this outbreak. I had my intelligence because I also get my own unit network in China, involved [in] the hospital … also I work with the top corona[virus] virologist in the world,” she said.

“So, together with my experience, I can tell you, this is created in the lab … and also, it is spread to the world to make such damage.”

Yan’s comments conflicted with the opinion of Dr. Anthony Fauci, a White House coronavirus adviser, who previously cast doubt on the idea the virus was artificially created. In May, he told National Geographic: “If you look at the evolution of the virus in bats, and what’s out there now is very, very strongly leaning toward this [virus] could not have been artificially or deliberately manipulated—the way the mutations have naturally evolved.”

In response, her former employer, the University of Hong Kong, criticized her account. A press release noted “that the content of the said news report does not accord with the key facts as we understand them.”

“Specifically, Dr Yan never conducted any research on human-to-human transmission of the novel coronavirus at [the University of Hong Kong] during December 2019 and January 2020, her central assertion of the said interview.”

Yan, who said she was one of the first scientists in the world to study the novel coronavirus, fled China and currently fears retaliation. She was allegedly asked by her supervisor at the University/WHO reference lab, Dr. Leo Poon, in 2019 to look into the odd cluster of SARS-like cases coming out of mainland China at the end of December 2019.

[End]

So, who are we to believe, a scientist who is placing her life in clear danger by making these allegations, or a lifelong bureaucrat who steered millions of dollars to the lab from which the virus was clearly released?

Doesn’t seem like a real tough question.

This also happened on Tuesday:

From a story at the Washington Examiner:

The Justice Department opened a criminal inquiry into whether former White House national security adviser John Bolton unlawfully disclosed classified information in his latest book.

A grand jury convened and issued subpoenas for communication records from Simon & Schuster, the company that published The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir, as well as from Javelin, Bolton’s literary agency, according to multiple reports on Tuesday.

“We are aware of reports that grand jury subpoenas have been issued seeking information concerning the publication of Ambassador Bolton‘s recent book,” Bolton’s lawyer, Charles Cooper, told the Washington Examiner. “Ambassador Bolton emphatically rejects any claim that he acted improperly, let alone criminally, in connection with the publication of his book, and he will cooperate fully, as he has throughout, with any official inquiry into his conduct.”

[End]

Oh, my, oh, my, oh, my, my, my. Whether he ends up being prosecuted and convicted or not, the decision to publish this book is going to end up costing Mr. Bolton far more money in legal fees than whatever money he may make from it. Couldn’t happen to a nicer warmonger.

No critical race theory training at CDC after all. – After President Trump ordered a halt to all training sessions on the evil “critical race theory” within federal agencies, some Obama holdover at the CDC decided they would move ahead with that agency’s sessions anyway:

Yesterday, the Director of the OMB, Russ Vought, announced that that bit of subversion had been halted:

There is still justice in the world.

A beautiful day for a peace deal. – As I covered elsewhere this morning, the Democrat/media Axis of Propaganda was beside itself with rage on Tuesday as President Trump was having the temerity to bring actual peace between three nations in the Middle East.

Katie Pavlich posted these photos, which captured the beautiful setting at the White House:

Blessed are the peacemakers. Thank you, President Trump.

Today’s Democrat Party-sponsored Riot Update – Portland, aka Riot City USA, had a fourth straight day of no rioting following the DNC stand down order issued last Friday due to bad polls. But real journalist Andy Ngo reports that the Democrat-paid organizers are getting ready to mount a new offensive soon:

As I pointed out yesterday, the past few days of relative calm are just a lull in the action. Expect the death and destruction to mount back up soon.

There was some action in Philadelphia, where Democrat-sponsored BLM terrorists held what CNN and MSNBC would claim was a “largely peaceful” rally that included these scenes:

Ask yourselves this: Why do Democrat mayors force their police officers to put up with this kind of crap? That woman is a feral animal who should have been arrested, taken to jail, and booked for assaulting a police officer. She needs to be in custody for her own safety and for the safety of those around her.

That is all.

William Barr has two More Major Investigations to Conduct: Netflix and the Mueller Criminal Conspiracy

Barr has miles to go before he sleeps. – As if William Barr didn’t have enough on his plate, the past week saw the rise of two new major areas of investigation his department needs to conduct.

The release by Netflix of what can only be described as the streaming service’s entry into the child pornography market – a shoddy piece of trash called “Cuties” – clearly mandates that AG Barr sic his the FBI’s child porn and trafficking unit on Barack and Michelle Obama’s employer. Oh, and did you remember that Susan Rice sits on the board of directors of this company? Quite the coincidences there, huh?

Possibly the lone remaining semi-honest Democrat public figure, Tulsi Gabbard, is so disgusted by the movie that she decided to take on the leftist Perpetual Outrage Mob (which is not at all enraged about Neflix distributing child porn) by tweeting this yesterday:

The FBI arrests hundreds of oily-haired, slushie-sipping perverts every year for having images like that one on their hard drives. But let the Democrat Party-endorsed Netflix put out a film that graphically portrays 11 year-old girls being abused by adults, and, well, it’s all ok. Because, see, the Democrat Party and it corrupt toadies in the news media and entertainment industry have been trying to brainwash you into normalizing pedophilia in your society for several years now. This film is just the next step in that effort.

“Cuties,” by the way, won an award for directing last year at the Sundance Film Festival. Barr’s investigation should also be extended to the participants in that effort to distribute child porn as well.

As if that weren’t enough to put on DOJ’s plate, the revelation this week that utterly corrupt U.S. Attorney Andrew Weissman and his gang of American Gestapo thugs “accidentally” wiped at least 27 cell phones that contained their communications related to the investigation is about as blatant an instance of abuse of power and obstruction of justice as our nation has ever seen. Weissman and his charges claimed they “accidentally” wiped their phones by entering “incorrect passcodes,” a claim so lame that even the mentally declining Robert Mueller himself would be able to see through it.

To understand how literally unbelievable this excuse happens to be, check out this finding by an enterprising Twitter user who tried to replicate Weissman’s claim with his own IPhone:

Yes, friends, Weissman is claiming that he “accidentally” wiped his phone via a process that involves nine steps and takes over an hour and a half to accomplish. That’s quite the “accident” right there.

This is public fraud on a grand scale. It is as corrupt as corruption in government gets, which is no surprise given that Weissman was involved. The simple fact of the matter is that the Mueller Investigation, like operations Spygate and Obamagate before it, was an outright criminal enterprise. Every day that passes without a single indictment of any of the wrongdoers of any of those involved in those criminal enterprises only serves to destroy the public’s faith in the American system of justice.

Where are you, John Durham? What in the world are you actually doing?

Thursday News Roundup: Durham, Barr Claim a Scalp, Portland Rioters Now Attacking Hospitals

Barack Obama, the environmental preside…wait, what? – In yet another prime example of the reality that Democrat hypocrisy knows no bounds, Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self, the man who spent 8 long years preaching the Climate Change fantasy, has now been revealed to be intentionally ignoring environmental laws during the construction of his $9 million home in Hawaii:

Scientists say that seawalls are the primary cause of beach loss in Hawaii and estimate that 20% of beach length in the state has been lost within the last century.

While modern laws have been developed to protect the state’s beaches, they have failed to do so as a result of as real estate loopholes, such as easements, often used to bypass the policies.

One might think that Nesbitt and Obama, who made environmental protection a major platform of his presidency, would be different and take the environmentally friendly action no matter the cost, but that appears not to be the case.

Permits obtained by ProPublica reportedly show that developers, after having torn down the property’s mansion, are planning to construct three homes, two pools, and a security perimeter on the property.

State officials confirmed to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser and ProPublica that the Obamas will be the compound’s future occupants once the project is complete.

[End]

You just could never make these people up. And who in their right mind would want to?

Durham claims his first scalp – will others follow? – Attorney General William Barr promised a Durham “report” and other actions by “the end of summer,” which is September 22. We will know by then whether Durham has been conducting a real investigation intent on exacting real justice on real criminals, or whether it is been just another DOJ distraction.

On Wednesday, Durham extracted the promised guilty plea from little fish Kevin Clinesmith, the leftist activist FBI lawyer who falsified an email in order to defraud the FISA court and obtain a warrant to spy on the Trump administration. The plea agreement for one count of lying to investigators carries with it a maximum sentence of 6 months in prison and fine of $250,000, chicken feed for a guy who willingly participated in an active coup d’etat effort on U.S. soil.

If this is all there is to the Durham investigation, both he and Barr will go down as just a couple more corrupt footnotes to American history.  It’s their choice.

But Barr is most certainly not Jeff Sessions. – He is doing real work, unlike his useless predecessor in the job, and he provided a good example of that in a press conference yesterday that was largely ignored by the corrupt news media.

At that presser, Barr detailed more than 1,000 arrests and over 200 prosecutions under federal statues related to DOJ’s Operation Legend. Here’s an excerpt from a report at Fox News:

At least 217 people have been charged with a federal crime, and more than 1,000 arrests have been made in major metropolitan cities since the Department of Justice launched Operation Legend in July, U.S. Attorney General William Barr announced on Wednesday.

Nearly 400 firearms have been seized by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Barr launched Operation Legend on July 8 as “a sustained, systematic and coordinated law enforcement initiative in which federal law enforcement agencies work in conjunction with state and local law enforcement officials to fight violent crime,” the DOJ said in a release.

It was named in honor of 4-year-old LeGend Taliferro, who was shot and killed while he slept in the early morning of June 29 in Kansas City, Mo. Last week, a Jackson County prosecutor announced second-degree murder charges against his suspected killer, 22-year-old Ryson Ellis, who was being held in Tulsa County Jail.

LeGend Taliferro, 4, was shot and killed while he slept in the early morning of June 29 in Kansas City, Mo.

“LeGend is a symbol of the many hundreds of innocent lives that have been taken in the recent upsurge of crime in many of our urban areas,” Barr said at a press conference in Kansas City. “His life mattered and the lives of all of those victims matter. His name should be remembered and his senseless death, like those of all the other innocent victims in this recent surge, should be unacceptable to all Americans.”

Barr said the federal government has dispatched to nine U.S. cities more than 1,000 additional agents from the FBI, ATF, Drug Enforcement Administration and U.S. Marshals Service to work shoulder to shoulder with state and local partners on homicide and assault squads to crack cases.

The government has also allocated $78.5 million in grants to support additional police positions, hire more prosecutors and improve technology to solve firearms crimes.

“We saw one result of those efforts last week when Kansas City Police arrested the suspected murderer of LeGend,” Barr said. “This arrest will not bring LeGend back but it will make his case an example of how we can come together to take violent criminals off the street and to make our communities safer.”

[End]

These are great results, but at the end of the day, local law enforcement is mainly up to local officials, and no DOJ has the resources to make up for all of the damage to America’s great cities being done by communist Democrat mayors and city councils. But you can’t blame Barr for not trying. Again, he is not Jeff Sessions.

Meanwhile, in Portland, Oregon… – Speaking of one of America’s dying, communist-Democrat run cities, citizens in Portland suffered through their 82nd straight night of violent riots overnight Wednesday, rioting that is still ongoing as I write this piece early Thursday morning.

Here are some of the highlights, provide as always by real journalist Andy Ngo, who does his best every day to overcome the Soviet-style wall of silence from the corrupt corporate news media:

And on and on it goes.

Notably, not a single speaker at the communist Democrat Convention has uttered a word of condemnation of these rioters. Which is not at all surprising, given that domestic terrorists are in fact organized and funded by front groups for George Soros and the communist Democrat Party.

That is all.

Democrat Convention Puts a Basket of Despicables on Display

You had one job, and you couldn’t find even 30 real people? – The steaming pile of hammer and sickle nausea that is the communist Democrat fake Convention steamed through its third night, and here is all you really need to know:

That’s right: If you look at the circled faces, you will see they are all duplicates. It’s like the corrupt news media carefully snipping video to make it look like more than a dozen people showed up for a Biden high school gym rally.

Honestly, you couldn’t find 30 individual women willing to pretend to be excited about a Veep candidate who slept her way into the U.S. senate? C’mon, there’s more women than that pretending to be a part of the fake #MeToo movement – weren’t they available? There’s more loyal communist Democrat women than that participating every night in the Portland riots. You couldn’t do a live feed from the burning Multnomah Building? There’s more loyal communist Democrat women than that in the Al Franken fan club, for crying out loud.

Obviously, the ratings for this snoozer of a convention are low – down 48% from 2016 – but they’re not that low. But hey, everything the Democrat party does is a lie and/or a fraud: Why would this livestream for Kamala be any different?

In addition to the carefully-read speech by Kamala Harris, Wednesday night’s festivities featured predictably dishonest and unhinged diatribes from Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self, Faucahontas and the Fainting Felon, who is still blaming her 2016 loss on the Russians. At my house, we are already into Season 3 of Yellowstone, in which the mooing cattle and howling wolves make far more logical sense than any communist Democrat.

Tonight, the Party that gave us the Ku Klux Klan, Jim Crow laws and the Antifa/BLM domestic terrorist complex will present the nation with a nominee who is a career racist, has a long history of inappropriate behavior with women and children, and who is displaying obvious symptoms of advancing dementia.

He is, in other words, the perfect representative for the Democrat Party in the year 2020.

Wait, who’s enriching himself??? – Here was the real highlight, though: At one point, Obama accused President Donald Trump of using the presidency to “enrich himself.” Just a reminder that, when he assumed the office of the presidency, Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self was worth barely more than $1 million.

Today, the guy who spent 8 years lying to America about rapidly rising sea levels owns a $15 million mansion that sits 2 feet above sea level on Martha’s Vineyard; the guy who spent 8 years lecturing struggling Americans about only using the resources they truly need is also about to own an $8 million vacation home in Hawaii; and the guy who spent 8 years preaching about the need to redistribute the wealth of other people also owns a $9 million home just outside of Washington, DC in Bethesda, MD.

Obama’s net worth today is reportedly upwards of $100 million. At the same time, Donald Trump’s net worth has dropped by over $1 billion since the day he won the 2016 election.

But Trump’s the one who is “enriching himself” in the presidency. Riiiight.

These people are despicable. In fact, we should call them a basket of despicables.

John Lewis got a Political Rally; Herman Cain Will get a Funeral

The Swamp holds a political rally, er, ‘funeral’ for John Lewis. – Now, you can’t go to church with more than 10 of your fellow Americans, but those who infest the DC Swamp can fill a church, ignore social distancing, and hold a political rally for a dead corrupt congressman who in his youth was a genuine champion of civil rights.

Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self was there, preaching about the glories of mail-in ballots and the evils of having to have an ID when you go vote. San Fran Nan was there, half in the tank as always. Slick Willie was there, his visage increasingly that of a wraith from a horror film, which is the only way one would expect a long-time running buddy of Jeffrey Epstein to age. Hell, they even rolled out George W. Bush, who likely knew Mr. Lewis about as well as he knew me.

Because this funeral wasn’t a funeral at all: Like the “funerals” for John McCain and Aretha Franklin and George Floyd before it, this was just another chance to brainwash the public and take shots at the Bad Orange Man who isn’t part of their club. That’s all it was: a gaudy and disgusting spectacle that has become sadly typical of the Swamp in general and Democrats in particular.

See, they can all do this thing that you can’t because they’re your betters. Just like Dr. Fauci can go to a baseball game and yuck it up in the stands while he ignores his own dictates that have become such an oppressive part of your lives. They’re the elite; the segment of our society that gets to ignore all of the stuff they tell you you must do or be tossed in jail.

If you don’t believe me, just watch and learn. Herman Cain, a hero for conservatives everywhere and a truly great American, died yesterday. Let’s watch and see if he gets a nationally-televised funeral in a church filled with Swamplings. Let’s watch and see if he gets a send-off in a church filled with people, period.

What Cain has received already instead is derision from the corrupt news media. Pretty much every outlet knee-jerked to the narrative that “Cain, who refused to wear a mask, died after he was diagnosed with COVID-19 just 9 days after attending a rally for President Trump in Tulsa.” To the Associated Press, the New York Times, Politico, CNN, MSNBC and all of the TV networks, that is apparently the story of Herman Cain’s life in its entirety.

For those unaware, Herman Cain was born in 1945 in Atlanta, the son of a father who worked variously as a barber, a chauffeur and a janitor and a mother who worked as a maid. Hard working, great Americans. Cain himself followed his parents’ example to become a hard-working, great American in his own right.

After putting himself through college and receiving a degree in mathematics from Morehouse College, Cain served his country as a civilian systems analyst for the Department of the Navy. He then moved into the business world, where he rose to national prominence, ultimately becoming the CEO of Godfather’s Pizza and the Chairman of the National Restaurant Association.

He ran for the GOP presidential nomination in 2012, a nomination that ultimately went to the Swampling RINO Mitt Romney, with disastrous results. Cain was running a strong race until it was revealed he had had an extra-marital affair, something that would have been a badge of honor for any Democrat, but which gave the corrupt media an excuse to hound him out of the race.

There will be no nationally-televised funeral for Mr. Cain. His body will not lie in state at the nation’s capitol. He won’t have 4 or 5 separate memorial services over a span of 10 days, as did McCain and Floyd and Lewis. Al Sharpton won’t be invited to deliver an hour-long, hate-filled diatribe. The Clintons will not travel to his funeral from Chappaqua, nor the Bushes from their ranch in Texas. Obama His Own Self will not deliver a eulogy filled with messages about mail-in voting or voter ID.

Herman Cain won’t receive send-offs from those former presidents, but he did get this tribute from the current one:

Rest in Peace, Herman Cain. Rest in the knowledge that, because you are neither a Swampling nor, like George Floyd, a convenient false idol being used by Democrats to justify mass riots, your funeral will be an actual, dignified service, not a disgusting political rally officiated by the fading wraiths of the elite.

That is all.

Friday News Roundup: COVID Fraud in Texas, Hackery From Politico, and the DNC Server Fiction Endures

It’s Friday, thank God, and we’re going to start this News Roundup with a couple of the funniest, most spot-on videos making the rounds of the Twitters this week.

First, this bit of absolute genius from @BennyJohnson:

And this one from @realpowertie wins the Internet both now and forever more:

Ok, enough of these shenanigans. Let’s move on to some actual news to round up…

This story didn’t get much notice yesterday, but the headline just irritates the hell out of me. – According to a British Intelligence report, the same group of Russians who supposedly “hacked the DNC” in 2016 attempted to steal COVID-19 data from the U.S. and its allies.

From a report at the Daily Caller, which quotes a Reuters report:

Russian government-backed hacking group reportedly attempted to steal research on coronavirus vaccines from the United States and its closest allies, according to a joint report from the U.S., Britain, and Canada released Thursday.

The report, published primarily through Britain’s National Cyber Security Center (NCSC), alleges the group APT29 or ‘Cozy Bear’ was responsible for attempting to break into academic and pharmaceutical institutions for information on COVID-19 vaccines and treatments, according to Reuters. ‘Cozy Bear’ is reportedly the same hacking group widely accused of breaching the Democratic Party ahead of the 2016 presidential election. Russia is the second country the U.S. has accused of attempting to steal coronavirus research, having named China earlier this spring.

“While others pursue their selfish interests with reckless behavior, the U.K. and its allies are getting on with the hard work of finding a vaccine and protecting global health,” British Foreign Minister Dominic Raab said in a statement.

To be clear, there is not a single shred of actual evidence in the public record that supports the notion that any Russian “group” in fact “hacked” the DNC’s email server. Remember, the FBI just took the DNC’s word for that. Comey and McCabe just allowed the DNC to contract with a private security firm called “Crowdstrike” to audit its server, and that firm – which was later implicated in efforts by the Ukrainian government to influence the 2016 election in favor of the Pantsuit Princes – produced a report to the FBI which Comey and McCabe then treated as gospel.

There is, however, evidence on the public record that the DNC’s emails were in fact downloaded by a DNC employee – most likely Seth Rich who ended up murdered on a vacant street in the wee hours of the morning – onto a memory stick which was then passed on to WikiLeaks.

With all due respect to the folks at the Daily Caller, this is an incredibly misleading headline and article that should not have been published by any reputable news outlets without gobs of asterisks and clarifications. This is how Soviet-style disinformation pushed by the Democrats ends up being perpetuated by our national media.

In case you missed it… – This happened in Texas this week:

In answer to Mr. Eagar’s question: Yes, this same thing fraudulent reporting of COVID-19 “cases” is happening all over Texas. It is in fact the practice being encouraged by state and federal officials here and in other states, and it is the main reason why the numbers of cases is so wildly overstated.

It was good of Mr. Eagar to stumble across the truth like this, but you can be sure he dropped the subject very quickly, since this bit of information definitely does not conform to the official media/Democrat narrative.

Speaking of misleading reports, check out this one from the corrupt Democrat toadies at Politico. – Politico has a major report out detailing how the evil Orange Man in the White House is trying to put people into high positions at the Pentagon who are actually – gasp! – loyal to him and his agenda.

From the slimy report:

The White House is taking advantage of a loophole to install loyalists to President Donald Trump in acting senior roles at the Pentagon, effectively skirting the Senate confirmation process.

While the number of vacancies isn’t new — one-third of the Defense Department’s 60 Senate-confirmed positions are filled on a temporary basis — the White House in recent months has been sending over people to fill open spots, as opposed to the more traditional method of tapping people within the Pentagon.

The White House on Monday announced that it was assigning Michael Kratsios, a 33-year-old White House chief technology officer, as the head of research and engineering for the entire DoD. Kratsios, who has a bachelor’s degree in political science, is replacing Michael Griffin, a former NASA administrator with a Ph.D. in aerospace engineering.

The administration has also discussed installing Anthony Tata, the controversial Fox News regular who has been nominated to be the Pentagon’s top policy official, in a different senior DoD role on an acting basis, according to an official familiar with the discussions. The move would head off what is expected to be a bruising confirmation hearing focused on now-deleted Islamophobic tweets.

Experts and Democratic lawmakers alike decried the campaign to root out those seen as disloyal and replace them with Trump acolytes, some of whom are underqualified. They worry that a climate that values loyalty over expertise scares away the best prospects and injects politics into an organization that tries to operate above partisanship.

[End]

To be clear: This “loophole,” as the hacks at Politico describe it, is actually a longstanding feature of law that has been used by every U.S. president for time immemorial. In recent history, it has been used to greatest extent by presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self.

Let’s all remember that those two most recent Democrat presidents didn’t even both putting such acting officials at the Pentagon and in other agencies. Instead, they made copious use of creating new “Czar” jobs that exercised the same kinds of oversight and authorities from the damn White House itself, so that they could be more easily controlled. Doing this also relieved many of these “Czars” from having to go through Pentagon background checks, which many of them would not have been able to pass.

But hey, this is just one more example of your corrupt, fake news media in action, courtesy of the Democrat activists at Politico.

Swamp Snake Mitt Romney Hisses His Disapproval of the Stone Commutation

RINOs gonna RINO. – It’s pretty much impossible to get Republicans-in-name-only Pat Toomey and Mitt Romney to get in front of a camera or a reporter to talk about any aspect of ObamaGate, the single most heinous scandal in American history in which the legal apparatus of an entire presidency was brought to bear to fix the 2016 elections and then to execute an attempted coup d’etat on American soil. About all of that, these two senators remain studiously mute, as useless in a fight as a couple of terracotta warriors.

But boy, let President Donald Trump do something they don’t like, and they’re the first to rush out and do everything they can to support the Democrat/media propaganda narrative. Yesterday, both senators decided to pan the President of their own political party, such as it is, for his completely justified and righteous pardon of a harmless old man who was clearly railroaded by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his band of Clinton/Obama thugs, a clearly corrupt Obama judge, and a fixed jury.

Here’s what Romney had to say:

No concern about the Mueller Gestapo-like abuse of process; no concern about the judge, Amy Berman Jackson, who exercised a series of abuses to tilt the case in the prosecution’s favor; no concern about a jury that was packed with anti-Trump Obama loyalists; just condemnation of the President who chose to exercise an authority he has all-too-rarely chosen to use. This is the very essence of Mitt Romney.

For his part, Toomey chose to forego the simple Twitter route – good for him – and issue a formal statement in which he attempted – in typical DC Swamp fashion – to take all sides of the controversy:

“The president clearly has the legal and constitutional authority to grant clemency for federal crimes. However, this authority should be used judiciously and very rarely by any president. While I understand the frustration with the badly flawed Russia-collusion investigation, in my view, commuting Roger Stone’s sentence is a mistake.

“He was duly convicted of lying to Congress, witness tampering, and obstructing a congressional investigation conducted by a Republican-led committee. Earlier this week Attorney General Bill Barr stated he thought Mr. Stone’s prosecution was ‘righteous’ and ‘appropriate’ and the sentence he received was ‘fair.’ Any objections to Mr. Stone’s conviction and trial should be resolved through the appeals process.”

Meh. Folks, what this statement from Toomey really is is the work of the staff of a spineless politician who represents a 50/50 state and is too afraid to take a principled stand on the matter. Toomey’s statement almost makes you want to respect Romney just a little bit, but then you remember it’s Mitt Romney we’re talking about here and that fleeting feeling flies away with the wind.

Not at all surprisingly, the President of the United States of America had something to say to these useless senators in response to their attacks. It is typically glorious:

This is the truth, folks. I defy any of you to find any statements from Romney or Toomey condemning Obama or Biden for their active participation in the ObamaGate conspiracy, which we now know to be the case based on documents in the public record. Go find me one and prove me wrong.

One final piece of information for the record here: The chart below shows how often each of the four most recent POTUS’s used their power commutation:

So, Trump has used his power more often than Bush did, not as often as Clinton, and then there’s Obama: 1,715 commutations, mostly of drug users and dealers and violent offenders. Look it up, and while you’re at it, see if you can find any similar harsh condemnation of Obama’s use of this power by Romney, who, after all, opposed him in the 2012 elections as the contemptible GOP nominee.

Romney could have won that election had he chosen to run a competent and aggressive campaign. But he clearly had no stomach for the battle; either that, or he intentionally threw the election. The result was a second term for Obama in which he was freed from having to moderate himself knowing that he would never have to face the voters again.

And that, friends, was the four year period that created the political conditions that made it possible for Donald Trump to run for and win the office of the presidency, as the public recoiled from those long years of incremental socialism, open borders and a give-away-the-store foreign policy that included planes filled with cash destined for Tehran and U.S. interventions in 8 separate civil wars in the Middle East and Africa.

The irony of Mitt Romney is that, had he campaigned as aggressively against Obama as he has done against President Trump, he would have become the 45th president instead of his tormentor. If Romney is looking for someone to blame for Trump, all he has to do is look in the mirror.

That is all.

Running Out the Clock: Mike Flynn Case Judge Requests En Banc Hearing

In possibly the single most predictable move in the long and sordid history of corrupt federal judges in America, District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan’s taxpayer-funded lawyer filed a request today for an en banc hearing before the DC Circuit Court of Appeals.

From a story at Law&Crime.com:

U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan, through his counsel Beth Wilkinson, has asked for U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit to rehear his case against the immediate dismissal of the Michael Flynn prosecution.

The Thursday petition for rehearing comes after a three-judge panel on the D.C. Circuit granted Flynn’s petition for writ a mandamus on June 24, directing Sullivan to dismiss the case.

“The panel majority granted the extraordinary writ of mandamus to prevent the district court from receiving adversarial briefing and argument on a pending motion. The opinion is couched as a fact-bound ruling based on ‘the record before the district court,’” the Sullivan petition for rehearing began. “It in fact marks a dramatic break from precedent that threatens the orderly administration of justice.”

[End]

That last sentence is laughably absurd that it is hard to believe a competent lawyer actually wrote it. The only “dramatic breaks from precedent” in this case wer Sullivan’s decision to refuse to grant the government’s motion to dismiss it due to rampant misconduct and hiding of exculpatory documents by the FBI and the DOJ’s own prosecutors, followed by Sullivan’s hiring of a) an ex-federal judge to write an amicus brief supporting Sullivan’s absurd decision-making and b) a defense lawyer to represent him, a sitting federal judge, before the Court of Appeals.

It is notable that today’s request for en banc by Sullivan’s lawyer comes a bare week before Sullivan was to have held a hearing to consider dismissing the case based on the order two weeks ago by a 3-judge panel of the DC Circuit that he do so. It is also notable that none of the 11 judges on the DC Circuit Court itself took the initiative to request an en banc, something any one of them could have done had they felt the order by the 3-judge panel was in error.

That fact, along with the utterly absurd reasoning put forth by his own lawyer likely means Sullivan has little chance of actually prevailing in his en banc quest. Sidney Powell will rip Ms. Wilkinson and silly attempt to put lipstick on this legal pig to shreds.

But the strategy here is painfully obvious: This is just the next step in Sullivan’s desperate effort to delay any final dismissal of the Flynn case until after the November 3 election. Can anyone doubt that, after he pretty much inevitably loses this appeal at before the Circuit Court that he and his taxpayer funded lawyer will then file a similar motion to have the case heard before the U.S. Supreme Court, which does not convene again until the first Monday in October?

Sullivan is an utterly corrupt tool of the Deep State. He and his Lawfare lawyer know he is in the wrong here, and that he cannot ultimately prevail based on legal arguments. This is just one more attempt to delay the inevitable, so that Flynn can be prevented from publicly revealing all he knows about the negotiations of the Iran Deal and other wrongdoing during the Obama administration before November.

What a circus.

That is all.

Kanye West Provides Details, and He Will Have an Impact

After tweeting out news of his intent to run for the presidency this fall on Sunday, rapper Kanye West sat down for what Steve Forbes says was a 4-hour interview with reporter Randall Lane. In the exhausive interview, West provides all the details about his reasons for running, his views about President Donald Trump and Joe Biden, the fact that he believes he has been chosen by God to lead the country and his belief that a COVID-19 vaccine would be the biblical “Mark of the Beast.”

The article on the interview can be found in full at this link.

Go read it – you’ll be glad you did, regardless of your views about Mr. West.

And here’s the thing about this: Whether you take Kanye seriously or consider his candidacy to be a joke, you should not doubt that, if he really does choose to mount a campaign this year, he will have a significant impact on the ultimate outcome.

As you watch the DC insider talking heads on your television assure you that it’s all just a joke, that West is not at all serious, that he will end his lark in a few weeks, and how could anyone imagine that Kim Kardashian West could ever become First Lady, remember that those exact same talking heads made the exact same dismissive comments in 2015 about Donald Trump and Melania Trump in the weeks after he announced his own candidacy.

One quote from West in this interview really stands out to me: “I’m not saying Trump’s in my way, he may be a part of my way. And Joe Biden? Like come on man, please. You know? Obama’s special. Trump’s special. We say Kanye West is special. America needs special people that lead. Bill Clinton? Special. Joe Biden’s not special.”

Whether we want to recognize it or not, America’s presidential politics have dramatically shifted, and that shift started with Bill Clinton’s candidacy in 1992. Clinton’s victories that year over 30-year DC veteran George HW Bush and four years later over 30-year DC veteran Bob Dole started a shift away from campaigns in which some old hand of the DC establishment roams around the country giving boring speeches detailing his 30-point plans to address every imaginable issue.

That’s what Elizabeth Warren attempted to do during the Democrat primaries, and we saw how well that worked out for her.

Clinton didn’t do that. Clinton was all about talking points and image – he had no more than 5 overarching messages composing 25 words or less that he repeated throughout his campaign, over and over and over again. Much of his campaign was based on pushing his image of being young, good-looking, a carouser with women and a guy who played the saxophone on the Tonight Show. To the extent he actually addressed issues, he lied through his teeth about them, and that only made him more of a bad boy who was sexually appealing to the women, who voted overwhelmingly for him.

Obama was all about Roman columns and huge crowds in big stadiums repeating nostrums about “hope and change” and promising to “transform this country,” a line we now see the pathetic 50-year DC hack Biden attempting to parrot from his basement.

Then came Trump, a complete outsider who had never sought a public office in his entire life. Trump didn’t have a detailed plan to address a single issue, other than to build a wall on our southern border. What he did have was image: The image of being a wildly-successful real estate developer, the image of being the guy who spend a decade saying “You’re fired!” on NBC, the image of being a bad boy who had gone through three wives. And, like Obama and Clinton before him, he knew how to communicate in terms that common, ordinary Americans understand.

That’s what our presidential politics are today. We don’t have to like it: It just is.

Democrat voters knee-jerked back to the old DC veteran Biden not because he’s who they really want, but because pollsters and party leaders kept telling them that Biden had the best chance of beating Trump. But ultimately, Biden is Bob Dole without Dole’s sense of humor and status as a war hero. He is not going to be our next president.

If you don’t think Kanye West will have tremendous appeal to many independent voters and tons of Black voters, then you really do need to pay more attention to what has been happening in our country over the last 28 years.

That is all.

Why the Flynn Win and Strzok Notes are Major Obamagate Developments

Wednesday was a momentous day for anyone who cares about the rule of law and the future of the country. Which of course means that the corrupt political activists who infest our national news media have no clue about any of it, and the Democrat politicians and RINOs in Washington DC are scared to death, because they do understand, but hate it.

It wasn’t just because General Mike Flynn and his kickass lawyer Sidney Powell partially won their appeal for a writ of mandamus before the DC Circuit Court of Appeals, although that was a big part of it. The other big deal – perhaps even bigger in terms of the future of the country – was the release of disgraced former FBI agent Peter Strzok’s notes from a meeting held on January 4, 2017 at the White House.

Let’s work with the Court of Appeals decision first. People need to understand what an incredibly rare thing it is in our country these days for any federal appellate court to slap down a federal judge as the completely out of control Emmet Sullivan was slapped down yesterday. A writ of mandamus is a step a defense lawyer takes only as a last resort, when the trial judge in their case has gone so far outside the bounds of the prevailing law that it has become impossible for their client to receive a fair trial in the court.

That reality is why so many expert observers were predicting that Powell’s request would be rejected, which would have allowed Judge Sullivan to keep stringing this case out past Election Day in November, which we now clearly see has been his goal all along. While the 3-judge appeals panel did not completely remove the case from Sullivan’s court, it did order him to dismiss ex-federal judge John Gleeson, who he had hired at taxpayer expense to improperly intervene in the case, and to dismiss the case outright, as the Department of Justice moved to do many weeks ago.

As we pointed out yesterday, Sullivan still has the option of requesting an en banc hearing before the full appeals court panel, but doing that poses very high risks for the future of his already damaged career. Regardless, yesterday’s order by the 3-judge panel preserves the separation of powers under the constitution, and will forever be a stain on Sullivan’s reputation, which had been pretty solid before his gross misconduct of this case. The decision is a huge win for the preservation of the rule of law in this country.

Strzok’s notes are just as important for one single reason: They provide a contemporary record that directly implicates both Joe Biden and Barack Obama as willing and active participants in Obamagate, providing strategic direction for the coup cabal.

The first thing to understand is that that January 4 meeting has not previously been noted as being important in any real way. The second thing to note is that Strzok himself was not in the meeting – his notes are apparently from a meeting he had later in the day with FBI Director James Comey.

Image

In that meeting, Obama, Biden and Comey (it is unknown if there were other participants) were discussing how to proceed vis a vis Flynn, who we now understand was a big target of Obama all along. Remember, when Trump met with Obama two days after the 2016 election, Trump came away from that meeting stunned that the one and only foreign policy matter Obama brought up was an admonition that Trump should avoid hiring General Flynn. I discussed the reasons why Obama was so worried about Flynn in that piece yesterday.

Here’s an excerpt:

Because, remember: Flynn knows where all of the bodies are buried here. This case was never about “Russia Collusion”; it never had anything to do with any real concerns about Flynn’s calls during the transition with Russian Ambassador Kysliak; it never had anything to do with any of the abject nonsense fantasy narratives that the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies have been pushing on the public since 2017.

This case was about protecting the dirty secrets behind Obama’s despicable deal with Iran, which, if left in place would have ensured Iran became the preeminent power in the Middle East, one armed with nuclear weapons. Flynn was fired by Obama in 2014 from his position as Director of Defense Intelligence because he raised objections regarding the negotiations over that deal, and that is why Obama/Biden and other high Obama officials could not stomach the thought of Flynn serving as National Security Advisor.

That’s why Flynn became the target of what we know beyond any doubt now was a blatant effort to frame him by the FBI; it is why he was targeted by American Gestapo Chief Robert Mueller and his enabler, Rod Rosenstein to begin with; and it is why Judge Sullivan has spent the past three years passing on at least half a dozen previous opportunities to dismiss this case and tolerating an unending stream of prosecutorial malfeasance in his courtroom.

[End]

In that January 4 meeting, it is obvious that Obama and Biden – who remember, actually unmasked General Flynn personally in early December, 2016 – remain very concerned about Flynn and all he knows. We see Biden himself become the first person to raise the idea of framing Flynn by using the Logan Act, an archaic relic of law under which no American citizen has ever been prosecuted. That’s how thin a reed these desperate people were pulling here.

We then have Comey telling Obama and Biden that Flynn’s calls with Russian Ambassador Kislyak are “legit,” i.e., not really fit for pursuit under the Logan Act. Regardless, we next see Obama, then the President of the United States, instructing the Director of the FBI to “look at this”, i.e., trying to build a case under the Logan Act, and to “have the right people on it.”

In January 2017, who were the “right people” at the FBI to have on an effort to frame a high incoming official in the Trump Administration? Why, you’d start with Peter Strzok, of course, since by then Strzok had already led efforts to fake the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s illegal email server, led the illegal spying effort – “Crossfire Hurricane” – on the Trump campaign and transition team, and to concoct false rationale to defraud the FISA court. Which is why the first thing Comey did when he got back to the Hoover Building was call Strzok – and perhaps Strzok’s bosses, Andrew McCabe and Bill Priestap – into a meeting to do a download.

Those notes, and that January 4 meeting, are a big, fat hairy deal, folks. Assuming John Durham and William Barr are really planning to execute some real justice related to Obamagate, those notes will make it very hard for them to continue to pretend that Biden and Obama themselves are above scrutiny. Once his case has been fully dismissed and he is able to speak freely, we can expect Flynn to make doing that even harder still.

It was a coup d’etat on American soil, folks, led and planned by Obama and Biden. I’ve been telling you this since mid-2017, and here we are.

As I always like to tell skeptical people: A “conspiracy theory” is not a “theory” when it is standing right in front of you slapping you in your stupid face. This one has been slapping us all for a long, long time.

Obamagate’s Motivation: Protect the Iran Deal

The Iran Deal was the epicenter of Obamagate. – That’s the direction this all is continuing to go after former Trump campaign foreign policy advisor Walid Phares revealed yesterday that the was the mysterious fifth target for persecution by the Mueller Special Counsel operation identified in Rod Rosenstein’s scope memo.

This story won’t get much attention from the fake news media, which is focused on its latest fear porn campaign related to the Wuhan Virus, but it is important because it serves to confirm what we have suspected about the motivations behind the still-ongoing persecution of General Mike Flynn.

From a report at John Solomon’s JustTheNews site:

“In my view, the push against the Trump campaign, and then the transition, and then the administration was on behalf of those who wanted to defend the Iran deal, to protect the interests of the Iran deal,” Phares told Just the News.

Phares, a counterterrorism expert who advised Mitt Romney’s 2012 campaign, Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and Republicans in Congress for years, has long been a critic of Iran for its support for terrorism as well as the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, Tehran’s ally in the Sunni world.

The Obama administration struck the deal to pay billions to Iran and ease sanctions on the country in exchange for a freeze on its nuclear weapons program, and it recognized the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt after the Arab Spring uprising led to the overthrow of Cairo’s longtime ruler Hosni Mubarak.

Trump’s improbable win in 2016 threatened to upend those alliances, Phares said during an interview on the John Solomon Reports podcast, and likely set in motion efforts to undermine the new president in fall 2016 and spring 2017.

“The Obama administration obviously was not happy,” Phares said. “Not just because Donald Trump won the election, but they knew that he was about to change things. The most important point that they were concerned about, and that was not a secret, was the fact that Donald Trump said during the campaign that he will be withdrawing, he will be canceling, he used different terminology, the Iran deal. And the Iran deal was a major strategic achievement of the Obama administration. Definitely, they were not happy with that.”

“And Donald Trump, also during his campaign, was talking about changing, shifting alliances in the region,” he added. “He didn’t want the partnership with the Muslim Brotherhood … So it was a massive change in foreign policy.”

[End]

Indeed, the Iran Deal was almost the only major strategic achievement of Obama’s entire 8 years in office. Unfortunately, it was an ‘achievement’ that would have set the Islamic Republic of Iran – the chief sponsor of terrorism on earth – as the dominant nuclear power in the Middle East.

General Flynn knew this, having served as the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency in the Obama Administration. Flynn was forced out of that job as negotiations over the deal were ramping up during the summer of 2014, and thus understands the motivations of the Obama officials who pushed it. He also understands the motivations behind the Obama administration’s embrace of the Muslim Brotherhood.

That is no doubt why we see such a flurry of activity by high Obama officials taking place in the wake of the 2016 election unmask, wiretap and eventually frame Flynn for a process crime he did not commit. Flynn knew where all the Iran deal bodies were buried, and the people behind that deal could not afford to have him serving as the nation’s National Security Advisor.

Obama, Kerry, et al assumed that Hillary Clinton would win the 2016 election and cover all of their tracks. But that didn’t happen and they flew into an obvious panic. They’ve spent the last three and a half years keeping Flynn muzzled through a series of FBI and Special Counsel investigations and a kangaroo court process that now has a once-respected federal judge, Emmet Sullivan, sacrificing his entire career at the altar of Obama and the Mullahs in Iran.

Sullivan’s role in all of this means that there is little hope that he will dismiss the case against Flynn once the 3-judge panel of the DC Circuit Court remands it back to him, which is the most likely outcome. Sullivan has a hearing in the case scheduled for July 16, pending the outcome of the appeal by Flynn’s lawyer, Sidney Powell, for a writ of mandamus.

From a policy standpoint, 3-1/2 years of President Donald Trump have virtually erased Barack Obama from the history books. Only some remnants of Obamacare and the patently illegal DACA executive order really remain standing from those eight sorry years today.

But from the standpoint of the utter and complete corruption of pretty much every institution of the U.S. government, the Obama legacy remains very strong. Given the almost utter lack of any help he receives in trying to clean that sludge out of the system from congressional Republicans, it is doubtful that even a second Trump term in office will be able to clean out the impacted sludge.

These Democrat Riots Will End America’s Downtown Renaissance

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

The inevitable outcomes of this past week of rioting in the major, Democrat-controlled cities are very predictable. The abject refusal by Democrat mayors and governors to make any effort whatsoever to protect the citizens and small businesses from the excesses of Antifa- and BLM-led burning and pillaging will have consequences for those cities for decades to come.

The first two decades of the 21st century have seen a revival of the central cities in America, as the Baby Boomer flight to the suburbs has given way to a move back to downtown and mid-town areas by Gen-X, Gen-Y and Millennials wanting to avoid being trapped into a life of long commutes they watched their parents endure. Life in high-rise and mid-rise condominiums within walking distance of office and shopping centers has become the new norm for these younger generations of Americans, and hundreds of thousands of small businesses have sprung up on the ground floors of those condo buildings to serve them.

When I first lived in Houston in 1980, no one lived in the downtown area, and the thriving area called “mid-town” was a slum. You didn’t want to linger downtown past dark because it was too dangerous to be caught there. Most other large cities in America were in similar shape after all of the “white flight” to the suburbs that had taken place since the 1960s.

That all began to change in the mid-1990s, after mayors like Rudy Giuliani had taken charge of the security situations in those downtown areas and city governments and business leaders invested billions in urban renewal projects designed to make those areas attractive places to live. College graduates of all races, colors and creeds, having grown up watching their parents spend 2 to 3 hours a day in stop and go traffic saw the advantages of living a few blocks from work and seized the opportunities to do so.

From Seattle to Portland to San Diego to Phoenix to Denver to Dallas to Houston to Miami to Boston, and many points in between, downtown/mid-town neighborhoods that were basically hellholes 40 years ago were turned into great cultural melting pots of our society. It was a stunning success story of 21st century America. But then came Barack Obama and Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch and the policies of hands-off policing, policies that order the police to stand down and watch helplessly during riots as the bad actors vent their rage at the expense of residents and small businesses.

The last week is simply the inevitable result of those “progressive” policies.

Thousands of young-ish New Yorkers who moved to Soho because it was a cool place to be woke up Monday morning horrified by the reality that Bill de Blasio had allowed the neighborhood they had believed to be safe and secure to be looted and burned during the night. Thousands more New Yorkers are waking up to similar realities in other Manhattan and Brooklyn neighborhoods this morning. Residents and business owners in downtown and mid-town areas of Minneapolis and Chicago and Philadelphia have seen their lives and livelihoods destroyed by city leaders who couldn’t be bothered to do anything to stop all the mayhem. The vast majority of these people are loyal Democrats who thought the leaders they have repeatedly elected would protect them.

Silly them.

The worst thing about it is that that mayhem – the looting, the burning, the shattering of doors and windows – was largely committed by their neighbors, egged on by BLM and Antifa organizers from out of state.

If you are a young mother or father who has just seen half of the buildings surrounding your home vandalized, burned and looted by people who live just blocks away, how will you ever feel secure in that home again? If you are a small business owner who has just had your storefront windows shattered and your store looted while your city’s Democrat leaders sat safe in their mansions and did nothing, what will be your incentive for reopening? You may do it for awhile, try to get back on your feet while putting bars on your doors and windows, but how long can you last as you watch half of your customers flee back to the suburbs where they were raised by their commuting parents?

The Democrat mayors and inner-city councilmen won’t care, because the captive population left behind will only lean more strongly in their favor. Their lives of grifting in positions of political power will have been secured.

For the people left behind, life will become grim. Sadly, most of them will have no understanding of the fact that the re-created downtown/mid-town hellholes to come are the result of their own actions and voting habits.

Life’s a cycle, and when you just keep mindlessly voting for Democrats, you get what you ask for, whether you realize it or not.

AG Barr Just Let Obama and Biden off the Hook

Today’s Campaign Update – BREAKING

Well, there you have it. – During his press conference Monday addressing developments in the investigation of last year’s mass shooting at NAS Pensacola, Attorney General William Barr took time to also discuss the progress of the ongoing investigation of Spygate/Obamagate led by U.S. Attorney John Durham. During the course of his four minutes of remarks, Barr made clear that, regardless of what Durham’s investigation reveals about the involvement of Barack Obama and Joe Biden, his DOJ will refuse to prosecute either man.

Below is a clip of Barr’s remarks, followed by a transcript:

 

Transcript:

“So long as I serve as Attorney General the criminal justice system will not be used for partisan political end, and this is especially true for the upcoming elections in November. We live in a very divided country right now, and I think it is critical that we have an election where the American people are allowed to make the decision, a choice between President Trump and Vice President Biden based on a robust debate of policy issues. And we can’t allow this process to be hijacked by efforts to drum up criminal investigations of either candidate.

“I’m committed that this election will be conducted without this kind of interference. Any effort to pursue an investigation of either candidate has to be approved by me. Now, what happened to the President, and I’ve said this many times, what happened to the President in the 2016 election and throughout the first two years of his administration was abhorrent. It was a grave injustice, and it was unprecedented in American history.

“The law enforcement apparatus in this country were involved in advancing a false and utterly baseless Russian Collusion narrative against the President. The proper investigative and prosecutive standards of the Department of Justice were abused, in my view, in order to reach a particular result. We saw two different standards of justice emerge: one that applied to President Trump and his associates, and the other that applied to everybody else. We can’t allow this to ever happen again.

“The Durham investigation is trying to get to the bottom of what really happened, and it will determine whether there were any federal laws broken; and if there were, those who broke the laws will be held to account. But this cannot be, and it will not be, a tit for tat exercise. We are not going to lower the standards just to achieve a result. The only way to stop this vicious cycle, the only way to break away from this dual system of justice, is to make sure that we scrupulously apply the single and proper standard of justice for everybody.

“Now, under the longstanding standards of the Department of Justice, criminal charges are appropriate only when we  have enough evidence to prove each element of a crime beyond a reasonable doubt. That is the standard we’re applying.

“Now, I have a general idea of how Mr. Durham’s investigation is going, and as I have indicated, some aspects of what happened are being examined as potential crimes.  But we have to bear in mind what the Supreme Court recently reminded us of in the Bridge Gate case: As the Court said there, there is a difference between an abuse of power and a federal crime. Not every abuse of power, no matter how outrageous, is necessarily a federal crime. 

As to President Obama and Vice President Biden: Whatever their level of involvement, based on the information I have today, I don’t expect Mr. Durham’s work will lead to a criminal investigation of either man. Our concern over potential criminality is focused on others.”

[End]

Ok, so, a lot of very noble stuff in there, pretty much all of which any fair-minded American would agree with had we experienced a normal political environment over the last 5 years.

After all, how can any fair-minded American disagree with the notion that the criminal justice system should not be used to achieve a political end? Or that justice must be blind? Or that “not every abuse of power is necessarily a federal crime?” Or, indeed, even that we need to do our best to end the abuse of the justice system in America?

Obviously, that’s all very just and fair.

The problem, of course, is that we have not lived in anything resembling a normal political environment for the last 5 years, and that the Obama Administration used the DOJ for partisan political ends for 8 long years. The political playing field was vastly tilted to the political left by Obama and his evil minions, and neither Barr nor Jeff Sessions have done much of anything to correct that tilt.

Plus, what if Durham’s investigation does reveal  “enough evidence to prove each element of a crime beyond a reasonable doubt” against Quid Pro China Joe? Let’s say that result comes about during the summer – how would it then be fair to the American public and indeed the American criminal justice system for Barr to decide to keep that information confidential – which he would have to do by the standard he articulated today – and to allow Biden to continue as a candidate unscathed, knowing that he would inevitably quash all evidence against him should he be elected?

Barr is absolutely correct that the U.S. justice system should have never been used for political ends as it was by Obama and Biden. But that is what it is at this point, and the damage has been done. If Durham’s investigation reveals criminal wrongdoing by either man, and Barr withholds that information from the public, regardless of timing, he will have rendered himself every bit the political tool that Loretta Lynch and Eric Holder were guilty of being.

That is all.

Judge Emmet Sullivan Continues His 3-Year War on the Federal Justice System

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

The Deep State sends a clear signal through Judge Emmet Sullivan. – If William Barr and John Durham think that bringing any participant in the Obama-era Coup Cabal that operated within the DOJ/FBI/Intelligence Community during 2015-2019 and still has remnants embedded in those agencies today to justice will be easy, they’d better think again.

That is the signal Clinton-appointed federal judge Emmet Sullivan is sending their way this week with his ongoing corrupt actions in the Soviet-style show trial of General Michael Flynn. After the DOJ moved to withdraw all charges against Flynn due to the rampant, heinous prosecutorial misconduct that has taken place throughout this three-year travesty of justice last Thursday, Sullivan has responded exactly the way he should have been expected to respond: With more judicial abuse of the defendant.

First, on Tuesday, Sullivan entered a minute order that allows the filing of Amicus briefs in the case, despite having repeatedly refused to accept hundreds of such briefs in support of Gen. Flynn during the course of the proceedings against him. Then, on Wednesday evening, the corrupt judge announced he was appointing a Trump-hating retired federal judge, fellow Clinton appointee John Gleeson to present arguments in opposition to the DOJ’s motion to dismiss the case. The appointment of Gleeson came just two days after Gleeson had penned a Washington Post op/ed piece slamming General Flynn.

So we can be sure he will be impartial in his service to the court, right? These Clinton/Obama judges are like a pack of cockroaches.

In that op/ed, Gleeson wrote, in part:

“The Justice Department’s move to dismiss the prosecution of former national security adviser Michael Flynn does not need to be the end of the case — and it shouldn’t be,” Gleeson and two co-authors wrote in a recent opinion piece. “The Justice Department has made conflicting statements to the federal judge overseeing the case, Emmet G. Sullivan. He has the authority, the tools and the obligation to assess the credibility of the department’s stated reasons for abruptly reversing course.”

To review, the DOJ reached its decision to dismiss after a U.S. Attorney in Missouri, Jeff Jensen, had conducted an exhaustive, 3-month review of the conduct by the FBI and DOJ/Mueller prosecutors in the case, and found a clear and indisputable pattern of rank and potentially criminal misconduct in what clearly was an effort to entrap and frame a 33-year veteran of the United States military.

Mr. Jensen, for those who may have missed it, is now a part of the Durham investigation, whose scope and staff continues to expand as more and more wrongdoing by Obama officials is unearthed.

With his moves of the past few days, Sullivan is sending a clear signal to Barr, Durham and Jensen that they are going to have to go through pure hell with the prosecution of any of those corrupt Obama officials if the trial ends up his court, the court of fellow corrupt Judge Amy Berman Jackson, and the court of any other federal judge who was appointed by Bill Clinton or Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self.

An impartial judge who hadn’t been hugely compromised would have tossed this case more than two years ago, when it first became painfully obvious that Flynn was being railroaded. Yet here Sullivan still is, taking the most extreme measures possible to extend the abuse of a true American hero. The obvious signal that sends could not be more clear.

The two-step solution to this is now equally obvious: Pardon General Flynn and convene the military tribunals. The federal courts, like every other aspect of the federal government, have been hopelessly corrupted by the only existential threat our country has faced since the end of WWII: The Democrat Party.

That is all.

Why Joe Biden had to be the Democrat Party’s “Presumptive” Nominee

The Evening Campaign Update

You all understand by now that the fix was in for Joe Biden, right? Everyone gets why Creepy Uncle Quid Pro China Joe literally had to be the Democrat Party’s “presumptive” nominee for the presidency this year?

This “presumptive” nomination was never in doubt. It took me a long time to figure that out, but the simplicity of it all finally popped into my head earlier today, as I was editing my third “Obama Knew” piece of the last four days.

Yes, Obama knew everything. He knew from cradle to grave. He knew about all the illegal spying on the Trump campaign beginning in late 2015 and continuing right into the Trump Transition and even into the Trump presidency. He knew about the Clinton Campaign and DNC splitting the costs for the fake Steele Dossier, and knew it was all based on lies from agents of foreign nations like Russia.

Obama knew about all the FISA fraud and the effort to entrap and frame Mike Flynn. He knew about the literal wiretapping of Trump Tower and knew about James Comey’s effort to entrap and frame new President Donald Trump. He knew about all the perjury and fraud and subterfuge and open sedition and arguably outright treason.

And guess who else knew about all of that in real time as it was happening? Creepy Uncle Quid Pro China Joe Biden.

That, folks, is why no one else could possibly become the presumptive Democrat nominee. Bernie Sanders never really had a chance. Nor did Preacher Pete, or Fauxcahontas or any of the other 7,000 candidates for the nomination.

See, Biden knows all the deep, dark secrets of the Obama years. He knows where all the bodies are buried. And more to the point, he participated in burying them. And even more to the point, he was the only declared candidate for the nomination this time who had that status.

Thus, Biden was the only person in the race who Obama and the evil minions who run the DNC could possibly allow to secure the nomination. After all, he had real skin in the game. If everything suddenly spills out into the public domain – as it has been doing in drips and drabs over the past few weeks – Quid Pro Joe is as much at risk as anyone else, including Obama.

Think about it: one of the things Biden knows – as Obama does – is that the DNC was not really “hacked” by the Russians in 2016, as the organization has falsely claimed for four long years.  Could the current DNC minions really risk having an unknown quantity like Preacher Pete walking into the Oval Office on January 20 of next year and trust him to be willing to become an after-the-fact accomplice?

What about Kamala Harris? Could she be trusted with the keys to the kingdom?

Fauxcahontas can’t even be trusted to tell the truth about her grandmother’s racial background. You think Obama can trust her to keep him out of all of this? Please.

No, this was always destined to be Biden’s “presumptive” nomination. He is the only candidate who is personally at risk, and thus the only one who could be fully trusted to immediately shut down any further investigations into anything related to Spygate/Obamagate on his first day in office.

Of course, the problem with this plan becomes more manifest with each passing day: Quid Pro China Joe is increasingly and obviously impaired. He is not capable of conducting a video conference call, much less the office of the presidency.

But note that I keep using the term “presumptive” nominee. That’s because Biden doesn’t have to be the actual nominee. All he has to do is remain semi-lucid for another couple of months, until all the party’s primary contests have come and gone, in order to ensure that Sanders has no ability to accumulate enough delegates to win the nomination on a first ballot vote at the convention.

Because, as Yoda said in one of those Star Wars flicks a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, “There is another.”

Yes, there is another. Another prominent Democrat who also has plenty of skin and personal risk in this game. Another who has been waiting in the wings all along, hoping for a chance to jump in and steal this nomination.

That, of course, would be the Pantsuit Princess herself, Hillary Rotten Clinton. The same Fainting Felon who was supposed to win the election in 2016 and sweep everything under the rug the day she assumed office in 2017. Oops. But now she might get a second chance to finish the job.

It’s all becoming clear now. It just took awhile to figure it all out.

That is all.

Obama Knew, And Now We Know, Too

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

It has grown increasingly obvious over the last few weeks that Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self was fully aware of and likely involved in the planning of Spygate from the very beginning. The drip, drip, drip of newly-declassified documents, most of them forced out into the sunlight by Acting DNI Ric Grenell and Attorney General William Barr, is providing an increasingly transparent picture of just what the former president had to know and when he must have known it.

Over the weekend, we talked about the fact that then-Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates was stunned to discover during a meeting on January 5, 2017 with Obama and James Comey that Obama was fully aware of all of the details surrounding the effort to entrap and frame General Mike Flynn, including the fact that the FBI was illegally recording Flynn’s phone calls during the presidential transition. This meeting occurred more than 3 weeks before the FBI’s carefully-choreographed entrapment interview with Flynn.

So, we know that Obama was intimately involved in that piece of the growing Spygate scandal. But it is almost certain that he was much more deeply involved than that, going all the way back to the germination of the effort to spy on and entrap certain members of the Trump Campaign, which we know began in late 2015.

We know that because all of those efforts were being conducted out of FBI headquarters under the umbrella of a counterintelligence investigation. As former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy told Captain Tick-Tock, Sean Hannity Friday evening, counterintelligence investigations are conducted for the president, and their progress is included in the president’s periodic intelligence briefings, which Obama received on a daily basis.

Here is a clip of McCarthy’s comments, followed by a transcript:

Transcript:

McCarthy – What I’m saying is not that the president sits there and directs that there be counterintelligence investigations. What I’m saying is that, unlike criminal investigations, counterintelligence investigations are done for the president. The only reason to do them is to inform the president with the information he needs to protect the United States from foreign threats. They are not like criminal investigations in that regard.

So, in principle, the information from a counterintelligence investigation is for the president. And here, we know at various junctures we have  actual factual information that this investigation was well-known to President Obama.

Hannity -Ok, so, if he knew, and this is all happening, he had to know about it from the get-go. Doesn’t that also imply that he would have been updated about all of this, if he’s the one that needs it for national security decision making?

McCarthy – Sean, if things were working properly, the President should’ve been alerted about it and informed about it. It was a very important investigation. If they actually believed what they were telling the court, that it was a possibility that Donald Trump was actually a plant of the Kremlin, it would have been derelict on their part not to keep the President informed.

[End]

Now, think about the implications of what McCarthy is telling Captain Tick-Tock in this clip. Everything, every element of Spygate, was coordinated out of the FBI’s counterintelligence division, which at the time was headed up by Bill Priestap, who reported to FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. This is why the demonic Peter Strzok had such a heavy role in every piece of the operation – he reported directly to Priestap at the time. So did FBI agent Joe Pientka, who conducted the Flynn entrapment meeting along with Strzok.

Comey and McCabe and Strzok have all claimed that the FBI formally kicked-off its counterintelligence operation against the Trump Campaign at the end of July, 2016, in an operation they named “Crossfire Hurricane.” But we know from a variety of documents now in the public domain that FBI and CIA operatives were in fact targeting Trump campaign people like George Papadopoulous way back as early as November, 2015.

We also now know that the FBI was engaged with and using information provided by British spy Christopher Steele throughout this entire time frame. And we also know that the FBI was fully aware that Steele’s information – which consisted mostly of salacious rumors provided by agents of Russia and other foreign governments – was highly questionable and very likely false. And finally, we also know that the FBI and DOJ were fully aware that Steele’s efforts were being funded by the Hillary Clinton Campaign and the DNC, which Clinton controlled at that time.

All of this is information that Barack Obama His Own Self almost certainly became aware of through his daily intelligence briefings.

Think about what else was going on under the rubrick of Crossfire Hurricane. That known-to-be-false information provided by Christopher Steele was being used by the FBI as its foundation for defrauding the FISA court and acquiring a series of illegally-obtained FISA warrants. The FBI used one of those illegal warrants to justify the tapping of Trump Transition Team phones, including General Flynn’s.

Obama knew. All of this. Every bit of it.

Now, think back to last Thursday and the breaking news that Acting DNI Grenell had hand-delivered a satchel filled with additional documents directly to Attorney General William Barr. What if those documents included copies of those daily intelligence briefings that were provided to then-president Obama during this time frame?

This could explain why President Trump suddenly switched from using the term “Spygate” to calling it “Obamagate” over the weekend. Obama’s sudden realization of how exposed he had left himself in all of this may have also motivated his decision to leak the tape of his carefully-scripted phone call with the “Obama alumni association” on Saturday.

Obama knew. He knew everything. Throughout the entirety of the 2016 presidential campaign, we had a sitting U.S. president fully aware of and actively participating in a spying operation on the nominee of the opposition party. He thought he was invulnerable because surely Hillary was going to beat Trump.

But then Trump won. And that victory by Trump necessitated the mounting of a coup d’etat on American soil in order to protect Obama and all of his his team, a coup effort that started with the attempt to entrap and frame General Mike Flynn.

Sidney Powell, Flynn’s badass lawyer who has had access now to far more information than is currently in the public domain, certainly thinks this is the case:

Obama knew. Everything.

This sure will be an interesting week.

Obama Knew, and Now He’s Worried

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II

If Paul Simon were to write a song about Barack Hussein Obama’s post-presidential years, he could title it “Still Leaking After All These Years.”

On Saturday, America’s Worst Mistake leaked a recording of a very-much scripted phone call to reliable old Russia Collusion buddy Michael Isikoff, who then “reported” on it as if it were a real thing. It wasn’t. Just as with everything else Obama has done throughout his entire political life – and perhaps throughout his entire life, period – this call with what he calls the “Obama alumni association” was basically designed to telegraph talking points to his allies and script a narrative for the compliant corrupt news media to follow.

Throughout the call, Obama can be heard rustling papers, so I guess he didn’t have a teleprompter handy. The dialogue on the call produces exactly the kinds of carefully-crafted “key messages” anyone who has ever worked in the communications field would recognize.

Check out this passage as an example:

“The news over the last 24 hours I think has been somewhat downplayed — about the Justice Department dropping charges against Michael Flynn,” Obama said.

“And the fact that there is no precedent that anybody can find for somebody who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free. That’s the kind of stuff where you begin to get worried that basic, not just institutional norms, but our basic understanding of rule of law is at risk. And when you start moving in those directions, it can accelerate pretty quickly as we’ve seen in other places,” he added, misstating that Flynn was charged with perjury.

[End]

Ok, so, first of all, all of the Obama “alumni” just got walking orders to call their corrupt media contacts and lecture them for “downplaying” the Flynn news, even though all those media toadies had already spent the previous 24 hours doing little but screaming about the decision.

Second, they’re all out there this morning screaming that this is “no precedent” because hey, that’s what Obama said. Of course, that is a damnable lie, as George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley detailed yesterday. Not to mention the fact that Obama His Own Self doesn’t even understand what crime Flynn had been charged with. Clue: It wasn’t perjury.

Then there is the spectacle of a former President who we now clearly know helped implement a plan to fix the 2016 election and to later attempt a coup d’etat on U.S. soil pontificating about the “rule of law.” Breathtaking.

Here’s another passage:

“It has been an absolute chaotic disaster when that mindset, of ‘what’s in it for me’ and ‘to heck with everybody else,’ when that mindset is operationalized in our government,” Obama said. “So that’s why, I, by the way, am going to be spending as much time as necessary and campaigning as hard as I can for Joe Biden.”

[End]

Now, really, does that sound like someone speaking in their own voice to you? Or does it sound like someone reading messages scripted for him by communications professionals? As a longtime communications specialist myself, I can assure you it is the latter.

But, after hearing that from The One His Own Self, you can expect to hear all of the Obama loyalist talking heads to be using the words “chaotic,” “selfishness,” and even “operationalized” all over CNN and MSNBC this week. And they’ll also be finishing up their segments with “that’s why I’ll be campaigning hard for Joe Biden this fall,” or something similar.

It goes on:

“This election that’s coming up on every level is so important because what we’re going to be battling is not just a particular individual or a political party. What we’re fighting against is these long-term trends in which being selfish, being tribal, being divided, and seeing others as an enemy — that has become a stronger impulse in American life. And by the way, we’re seeing that internationally as well. It’s part of the reason why the response to this global crisis has been so anemic and spotty.”

[End]

Again, the key words for everyone to parrot here are obvious: “selfish,” “tribal,” “divided, “seeing others as the enemy.”

This is Democrat projection at its finest, folks. After all, Obama and his administration spent 8 of the longest years in American history doing everything the could, using every rhetorical tool they could think of to pit Americans against Americans along tribal and selfish lines. Obama himself constantly engaged in the most heinous kind of divisive rhetoric in which he at various times painted Republicans, law enforcement, the Tea Party, Christians, Jews, Catholics, southerners and anyone who happened to be a white male as an enemy.

The leaking of this call to the very same corrupt journalist who was tabbed by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC to kick off the Russia Collusion conspiracy theory in 2016 was no accident. This was the act of a very frightened and guilty man who is sending out a call to action to those operatives who still remain loyal to him, demanding that they redouble their efforts to protect their old boss and smear the current POTUS who they have spent three years attempting to remove from office.

This is spine-chilling stuff to anyone who still cares about this country and its survival.

That is all.

Reminder: Obama Knew Everything

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

Don’t kid yourselves otherwise, folks: Obama knew everything that was happening in his administration. If you think Brennan and Comey and Strzok and McCabe and Priestap and Page and Baker and Rice and Lynch and all the other participants in the FBI/DOJ Coup Cabal just took it upon themselves to a) cover up the Hillary Clinton email scandal, b) attempt to rig the 2016 general election, c) mount an illegal spying effort on members of the Trump campaign, d) continue that illegal spying effort on the Trump transition team, e) defraud the FISA court in the process, f) entrap and frame General Mike Flynn, g) attempt to entrap and frame President Donald Trump himself, and g) invent a false rationale for the appointment of a special counsel whose job was really to mount a coup d’etat on U.S. soil, and hid all of that from Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self, then you are terribly naive and most likely intentionally uninformed.

The key to really understanding Obama’s first-hand knowledge of and almost certain involvement in the planning of all of these things is to understand the real nature of the meeting of January 5, 2017. Amid the previously-withheld documents released over the past ten days, we discover this about that meeting:

“Yates first learned of the December 2016 calls between [LTG Michael] Flynn and [Russian Ambassador to the United States, Sergey] Kislyak on January 5, 2017, while in the Oval Office. Yates, along with then FBI-Director James Comey, then-CIA Director John Brennan, and then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, were at the White House to brief members of the Obama Administration on the classified Intelligence Community Assessment on Russian Activities in Recent U.S Elections. President Obama was joined by his National Security Advisor, Susan Rice, and others from the National Security Council,” the document states.

“After the briefing, Obama dismissed the group but asked Yates and Comey to stay behind. Obama started by saying he had ‘learned of the information about Flynn’ and his conversation with Kislyak about sanctions. Obama specified he did not want any additional information on the matter, but was seeking information on whether the White House should be treating Flynn any differently, given the information. At that point, Yates had no idea what the President was talking about, but figured it out based on the conversation. Yates recalled Comey mentioning the Logan Act, but can’t recall if he specified there was an ‘investigation,'” it continues.

Note how Yates, one of the most reprehensible of all Obama sycophants, is shocked to learn that the POTUS himself somehow knows about the FBI’s efforts to dig up dirt on General Flynn. And remember that this is just a day after Peter Strzok had intervened to reverse the decision that Priestap and McCabe had already made to shut that effort down, which we now know would have been the proper decision. But here we are on January 5, and the thing is still alive and Obama’s discussing the details directly with Comey. That is stunning in and of itself.

But even more important here is to remember what is so key about the meeting of the full group that took place before Yates’s revelation. Let’s remember that this is the very meeting about which Susan Rice wrote her infamous “memo to self” in which she attempted to make the meeting and Obama’s conduct in it seem to be completely innocuous and “by the book.” Chuck Ross, then with the Daily Caller, remembered that incident in 2018:

Rice sent the email at 12:15 p.m. on Jan. 20, 2017, her final day in office. In the message, she memorialized a Jan. 5 Oval Office meeting she attended with President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, FBI Director James Comey and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates.

The topic was the ongoing investigation into possible Trump campaign collusion. According to press reports, Comey briefed Obama that day on the unverified Steele dossier.

Grassley and Graham laid out their concerns with the email in a letter sent to Rice last week.

“It strikes us as odd that, among your activities in the final moments on the final day of the Obama administration, you would feel the need to send yourself such an unusual email purporting to document a conversation involving President Obama and his interactions with the FBI regarding the Trump/Russia investigation,” they wrote.

In her email, Rice wrote to herself:

On January 5, following a briefing by [Intelligence Community] leadership on Russian hacking during the 2016 Presidential election, President Obama had a brief follow-on conversation with FBI Director Jim Comey and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates in the Oval Office. Vice President Biden and I were also present.

She said that Obama began the conversation “by stressing his continued commitment to ensuring that every aspect of this issue is handled by the Intelligence and law enforcement communities ‘by the book.’”

“The President stressed that he is not asking about, initiating or instructing anything from a law enforcement perspective. He reiterated that our law enforcement team needs to proceed as it normally would by the book,” she continued.

Rice also wrote that there was a discussion over whether classified information regarding Russia should be withheld from the incoming Trump administration.

“From a national security perspective, however, President Obama said he wants to be sure that, as we engage with the incoming team, we are mindful to ascertain if there is any reason that we cannot share information fully as it relates to Russia,” she wrote.

Grassley and Graham noted that the next portion of the email contained classified information and remains redacted. In the next section, Rice wrote: “The President asked Comey to inform him if anything changes in the next few weeks that should affect how we share classified information with the incoming team. Comey said he would.”

Grassley and Graham, who serve on the Senate Judiciary Committee, say they question whether the Obama team conducted the Trump investigation “by the book.”

[End]

This was a blatantly transparent, last-minute attempt by Rice to try to sanitize this meeting for the public record. There was literally no other reason for her to be engaging in this particular activity on her final day in office.

But immediately following this meeting, the FBI redoubled its efforts to entrap Flynn. Obama also took the action of drastically loosening rules around the sharing of classified information within various departments of the administration, including raw intelligence that was use by his senior people to illegally unmask hundreds of American citizens. This resulted in a flood of leaks to corrupt media outlets intended to damage the incoming Trump Administration.

The great Mollie Hemingway had a really good piece on Friday detailing other despicable actions that flowed out of this January 5 meeting led by Obama His Own Self:

A clearer picture is emerging of the drastic steps that were taken to accomplish Obama’s goal in the following weeks and months. Shortly thereafter, high-level operatives began intensely leaking selective information supporting a supposed Russia-Trump conspiracy theory, the incoming National Security Advisor was ambushed, and the incoming Attorney General was forced to recuse himself from oversight of investigations of President Trump. At each major point in the operation, explosive media leaks were a key strategy in the operation to take down Trump.

Not only was information on Russia not fully shared with the incoming Trump team, as Obama directs, the leaks and ambushes made the transition chaotic, scared quality individuals away from working in the administration, made effective governance almost impossible, and materially damaged national security. When Comey was finally fired on May 9, in part for his duplicitousness regarding his handling of the Russia collusion theory, he orchestrated the launch of a Special Counsel probe that continued his efforts for another two years. That probe ended with Mueller finding no evidence of any American colluding with Russia to steal the 2016 election, much less Trump or anyone connected to him.

An analysis of the timeline from early 2017 shows a clear pattern of behavior from the federal officials running the collusion operation against the Trump campaign. It also shows how essential media leaks were to their strategy to sideline key law enforcement and intelligence officials and cripple the ability of the incoming Trump administration to run the country.

[…]

January 5: Yates, Comey, CIA Director John Brennan, and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper briefed Obama on Russia-related matters in the Oval Office. Biden and Rice also attended. After the Obama briefing, the intelligence chiefs who would be leaving at the end of the term were dismissed and Yates and Comey, who would continue in the Trump administration, were asked to stay. Not only did Obama give his guidance about how to perpetuate the Russia collusion theory investigations, he also talked about Flynn’s conversations with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, according to both Comey and Yates. Interestingly, Clapper, Comey, and Yates all said that they did not brief Obama about these phone calls. Clapper testified he did not brief Obama on the calls, Yates learned about the calls from Obama himself during that meeting, and Comey also testified he didn’t brief Obama about the calls, even though the intelligence was an FBI product. Rice, who publicly lied but later admitted under oath to her widespread use of unmasked intelligence at the end of the Obama administration, likely briefed Obama on the calls and would have had access to the intelligence. Comey mentions the Logan Act at this meeting.

January 6: An ostensibly similar briefing about Russian interference efforts during the 2016 campaign was given to President-elect Trump. After that briefing, Comey privately briefed Trump on the most salacious and absurd “pee tape” allegation in the Christopher Steele dossier, a document the FBI had already used to obtain a warrant to spy on Trump campaign affiliate Carter Page. Comey told Trump he was telling him because CNN was looking for any reason it could find to publish a story about Russia having compromising information on him, and he wanted to warn Trump about it. He did not mention the dossier was completely unverified or that it was the product of a secretly funded operation by the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee.

January 10: In an amazing coincidence, CNN found the excuse to publish the Russia claims after a high-level Obama intelligence operative leaked that Comey had briefed Trump about the dossier. This selective leak, which was credulously accepted by CNN reporters Evan Perez, Jim Sciutto, Jake Tapper and Carl Bernstein, may have been the most important step in the operation to harm the incoming Trump administration. The leak of the briefing of Trump was used to legitimize a ridiculous dossier full of allegations the FBI knew to be false that multiple news organizations had previously refused to report on for lack of substantiation, and created a cloud of suspicion over Trump’s campaign and administration by insinuating he was being blackmailed by Russia.

January 12: The next part of the strategy was the explosive leak to David Ignatius of the Washington Post to legitimize the use against Flynn of the Logan Act, a likely unconstitutional 1799 law prohibiting private individuals, not public incoming national security advisors, from discussing foreign policy with foreign governments. Ignatius accepted the leak from the Obama official. He wrote that Flynn had called Kislyak. “What did Flynn say, and did it undercut the U.S. sanctions? The Logan Act (though never enforced) bars U.S. citizens from correspondence intending to influence a foreign government about ‘disputes’ with the United States. Was its spirit violated?” Flynn’s routine and appropriate phone call became fodder for a developing grand conspiracy theory of Russia collusion. In discussions with investigators, both DOJ’s Mary McCord and Comey conspicuously cite this Ignatius column as somehow meaningful in the approach they would take with Flynn. “Nothing, to my mind, happens until the 13th of January, when David Ignatius publishes a column that contains a reference to communication Michael Flynn had with the Russians. That was on the 13th of January,” Comey said of the column that ran online on January 12. In fact, quite a bit had happened at the FBI prior to that leak, with much conversation about how to utilize the Logan Act against Flynn. And the leak-fueled Ignatius column would later be used by FBI officials to justify an illegal ambush interview of Flynn in the White House.

January 23: Another important criminal leak was given to Ellen Nakashima and Greg Miller of the Washington Post, also based on criminal leaks. Their article, headlined “FBI reviewed Flynn’s calls with Russian ambassador but found nothing illicit,” was intended to make Flynn feel safe and put him at ease about the FBI stance on those calls the day before they planned to ambush him in an interview. The article was used to publicize false information when it said, “Although Flynn’s contacts with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak were listened to, Flynn himself is not the active target of an investigation, U.S. officials said.” In fact, emails prior to this date confirm Flynn was their prime target. This article was later cited by McCabe as the reason why they were justified in concealing from Flynn the real purpose of their interview. Flynn later asked McCabe if he knew how all the information about his phone calls had been made public and whether it had been leaked. Any potential response from McCabe to Flynn has been redacted from his own notes about the conversation.

[End]

Mollie details much, much more in her piece, which everyone should go read in full. All of these despicable, anti-American actions flowed directly out of that January 5 meeting in the White House.

One big, glaring aspect about that meeting, in addition to directly implicating Obama in all of this, is the fact that Quid Pro Creepy Uncle China Joe Biden was also in attendance that day. That’s right: The presumptive presidential nominee of the Democrat Party also knew about all of this, although his ability to retain that knowledge remains an open question.

I’ve said this for three years now, but it bears repeating again: This is the biggest scandal in American history. We had a sitting President of the United States actively involved in an effort to fix a national election and then to bring down his successor. The truth of this is as plain as the nose on your face, and so horrible that it is sickening to contemplate.

What this means is that everything President Trump has told you about this scandal has been true: There was no Russia collusion in his campaign; Trump Tower was being illegally spied upon by the Obama FBI and other intelligence agencies; Mike Flynn was framed; Roger Stone and Paul Manafort have been unfairly brutalized in Soviet-style show trials led by Obama appointed judges; There was no legal basis for the appointment of a Special Counsel; Jim Comey did indeed attempt to entrap and frame Trump himself; on and on it goes.

And yesterday, when you heard President Trump tell the hosts of Fox and Friends that Obama himself knew about it all and participated in the planning, that was true, too. It all goes back to that meeting of January 5, 2017. That is the fulcrum around which all the myriad aspects of this still-unfolding act of outright treason against America revolves.

Evelyn Farkas: So Sleazy and Amoral That She’s Running for Congress

The Mid-Day Campaign Update

Evelyn Farkas is back in the news today, and boy, isn’t that just so great? 

You may remember this raving nutjob from way back in March, 2017, when she made an appearance on MSNBC which became big news for a very brief period of time. I knew I had written about this sleazy Obama operative then, so I went and looked it up.

Here you go:

But was her son, Scut, involved?  What about his toady, Grover Dill?:  Speaking of stories you can’t find, a former Obama official named Evelyn Farkas told Mika Brzezenzski (or however you spell that name) on MSNBC early in March that she and many other Obama officials had indeed participated in an organized effort to circulate raw surveillance intelligence involving members of the Trump Transition Team, and had gladly shared the intel with members of the fake news media, unmasking some American citizens in the process.  She told this all to MSNBC gladly, and in a manner that made it obvious she is in fact proud of her actions.  She apparently did not understand that, in the process of that interview, she was potentially admitting to the commission of multiple felonies by herself, other Obama officials and members of the fake news media.  Thus, the fake news media has been jointly sitting on this story hoping it would just fade away.  Trouble is, the story has been getting a ton of attention in the realm of talk radio this week, so suddenly Ms. Farkas felt the need to go back on cable TV on Thursday to deny everything she had told Mika.  And her friends in the fake news media will nod their heads and move on.  Nothing to see here, all is well.

Yeah, remember her now? Is it all coming back to you?

Well, guess what? That little episide landed her in front of the House Intelligence Committee, which was run by honest Republicans at the time, for behind-closed-doors testimony. As it happens, despicable Democrat Adam Schiff had been sitting on the transcript of her testimony until yesterday, when DNI Ric Grenell forced ol’ Bug Eyes to release it and 52 others to the public.

Not surprisingly, when forced to discuss her MSNBC appearance, this amoral, ethics-devoid Obama loyalist (aren’t they all amoral and devoid of ethics, after all?), when faced with potential perjury charges, essentially admitted everything she had said in her first TV appearance was in fact a politically-motivated lie. Which no doubt appalled Mr. Schiff.

As reported by Sean Davis at The Federalist, here is the key excerpt from her transcript:

But Farkas sang a different tune under oath when questioned by lawmakers about what she actually “knew” about collusion.

“Why don’t we go back to that sentence that I just asked you about. It says ‘the Trump folks, if they found out how we knew what we knew about their staff dealing with Russians,” Gowdy said. “Well, how would you know what the U.S. government knew at that point? You didn’t work for it, did you?”

“I didn’t,” said Farkas, a former mid-level Russia analyst who left the federal government in 2015.

“Then how did you know?” Gowdy responded.

“I didn’t know anything,” Farkas said.

“Did you have information connecting the Trump campaign to the hack of the DNC?” Gowdy asked.

“No,” Farkas admitted.

“So when you say, ‘We knew,’ the reality is you knew nothing,” Gowdy asked later during the deposition.

“Correct,” Farkas responded.

Gowdy didn’t stop there.

“So when you say ‘knew,’ what you really meant was felt?” he asked.

“Correct,” Farkas answered.

“You didn’t know anything?” Gowdy continued.

“That’s correct,” Farkas responded.

[End]

Ouch.

Oh, but here is the best part: This sleazy, amoral, ethics-devoid political operative for America’s Worst Mistake, Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self, is now of course the Democrat Party’s nominee to become the congressional representative for New York’s 17th district.

You could never, never, never, ever make this stuff up, folks. Not in a billion, octillion years.

That is all.

The Tara Reade Story Might be the Democrat Party’s Real Plan B

The Mid-Day Campaign Update

Guest Contribution by Gregg Updike

Boy, does the MSM (D) and the DNC really have to tie themselves up in knots in their attempt to thread the political needle in this election cycle.

The Democratic leadership and the left are users, plain and simple.  They use loyal donkeys to suit their purpose at the moment and dump them like yesterday’s trash when their ‘use by date’ expires.  Here are some examples:

Al Franken was propped up and helped over the finish line in Minnesota by the DNC’s Voter Fraud Division in his defeat of Norm Coleman (R) to gain a blue senate seat.  Then, to provide credibility and show they were all in on the #MeToo (bowel) movement, they dumped him as he became expendable for several reasons:

  1. To give the appearance that Democrats care about women. The left had to sacrifice a politico along with Harvey Weinstein – another operative who was dumped after being milked for all he was worth.
  2. To clear the field for his co-senator – Amy Klobuchar – to run for president; remember he was being touted as a possible serious presidential contender at the time.
  3. To knock out a candidate who was an easy target so that lightweight Senator Kristin Gillibrand (D) NY, would have less competition in her bid. I single her out because she showed phony righteous indignation to Franken’s behavior, but not so much to Bill Clinton and his enabling wife and others, when it could have mattered. Gillibrand took an easy opportunity to end a competitor’s bid.
  4. The blue senate seat was safe since the Minnesota governor was a Democrat and appointed an even more radical senator. Would Franken have been cashiered so quickly if the Minnesota governor had been a Republican? I think not.  Franken would have been defended to the hilt like all their other reprobates.

Other examples:

The Democratic Party used the new, “bright, clean, and articulate” (quoting Joe Biden) Barack Hussein Obama to sandbag Hillary in 2008 – they got a bonus when the Republicans ran the pathetic “hero” John McCain and got their empty suit figurehead elected twice.

They used Bernie Sanders in 2016, originally to show that Bill’s Wife could win in a semi-competitive race.  However, when it became way too competitive, Sanders had to be sandbagged AND bought off to protect Obama’s third term, and because it was “Her turn”.

As all of this year’s hopefuls flamed out, the Head Honchos of the DNC were forced to go with the ‘steady’ safe  warhorse Joe after trying to gut his chances with some planted anti Biden stories early in his run last year.  As every Democratic hopeful – except for Sanders – proved to be exceedingly bad and dropped out, Biden hung around and became the last viable choice to be used to take out the communist Sanders and to save the down ballot races.  Pocahontas was also used to intercourse Sander’s strong bid by staying in the race just long enough to split his radical base for Gaffe O. Joe to ‘win’ big on Super Tuesday.

Gaffe O. Joe was used to successfully take out the sure loser in order to prevent a down ballot wipeout.  Now, with the economic devastation wrought by the China virus, Trump is seen as possibly beatable.  That being their current perception, the DNC and MSN (D) are now desperately searching for a viable replacement and not just a ballot filler like Mondale was in 1984, to run against Trump. Choosing some creditable, appealing, and capable vice president nominee to garner enough votes for a victory is just not going to cut it – no one votes for a Vice President (even Michelle Obama) on the come.

This means the propaganda wing of the MSNDNC has to strategically get in gear to force Gaffe O. Joe to leave on his own accord, and not anger the entire Democratic voting base.  How best to do that?

They know they can’t use Hunter and the Ukraine and China connections because too many Deep Staters will also be taken down – Government Scandals can only be used against GOP Presidents.  That amendment is in the DC DS private constitution.  They have to find another angle to get Biden to leave. They have carried his gaffes and, to some degree, successfully hidden is intellectual deficiencies and mental decline for so long, it would be a hard sell to now use it against him.

However, they can carefully and gradually introduce a decades old sex scandal into the equation, but keep it on the down low, simmering, on a credible – to some, but relatively minor ‘news’ outlet – Politico.  That way, if it is determined that Trump is invincible, we’ll go with plan “A” and let Biden be Mondale the second.

However, if Trump is perceived by DNC internal polling as beatable in the next several months, Plan “B” will be activated if the DNC think they have a viable (Mark Cuban? Andrew Cuomo? Gary Newsom?) replacement.  Plan “B” will be launched with many “Breaking News” stories that will come from an exhaustive media ‘investigation’ of the “Politico” reports on then Senator Biden’s sexual misconduct, demotion and firing against and of Tara Reade back in 1993.

Gaffe O. Joe’s campaign will have been effectively scuttled.  The Democratic Party will have ‘real’ evidence as to how much they care about women.  They will then get to pick who they want to run against Trump, since there won’t any time to have a democratic type primary process.  Just like in the good old days, the Head Honchos in smoke filled rooms will get to choose the candidate.  This is all setting up well for plan “”B to be at least partially successful in that it could at least prevent a major fracturing of their base and gain a lot of points as a party who cares about the woman.

That is all.

Why I Don’t Care About the Land O’ Lakes Label Change

The Mid-Day Campaign Update

Someone asked me overnight why I didn’t write something about the Land O’ Lakes label, and all I could think of was why in the world would I write about that?

For those who are unaware, on Friday, management at Land O’ Lakes responded to pressure from Native American activists and removed the image of an Indian woman from its labels after using it for more than 100 years.

God and Butter | Don't Worry, Be Mappy

In a statement, a spokesman said it would now focus on the farmers that actually own the company:

“As Land O’Lakes looks toward our 100th anniversary, we’ve recognized we need packaging that reflects the foundation and heart of our company culture — and nothing does that better than our farmer-owners whose milk is used to produce Land O’Lakes’ dairy products,” Beth Ford, Land O’Lakes president and CEO, said in a statement.

Ok, fine. Why should I care? Why should anyone care?

Well, apparently a lot of people care about this company decision, because Twitter erupted with both messages of support and howls of protest over it, as chronicled in an article on the kerfluffle at the International Business Times. One Twitter user even put together a funny meme on the topic, indicating that Land O’ Lakes must be only 1/1024th butter:

Image may contain: 1 person, text

I thought that was amusing enough to post it on my Facebook feed, but was not interested enough in the subject to actually write about it.

I had a similar reaction to all the fake uproar from many conservatives over the fact that Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self waited for so long to endorse his former vice president, China Joe Biden. Being old enough to remember the 1980s, I thought that was all kind of silly, since Ronald Reagan also waited until George H.W. Bush, faced with a challenge from Jack Kemp, had essentially secured the nomination in 1988 before announcing his endorsement.

I figure if Obama wants to emulate Ronald Reagan on anything, it’s a welcome change.

But back to Land O’ Lakes: Why should it upset anyone that they decided to change their label? By the same token, why should it upset me or anyone else if some Native American activists basically forced the change?

Personally, I do wonder why anyone found that particular image to be offensive, since the label was designed to signify quality and purity. It was hardly similar to the obviously demeaning images long used by the Atlanta Braves and the Cleveland Indians. Those, I got.

Then again, it’s none of my business to judge what does and does not offend Native American activists. And, after years of dealing with half a dozen American Indian Tribes in my professional life and observing how they are still, in the 21st century, treated as 3rd-class citizens by the Bureau of Indian Affairs and other U.S. government agencies, I have a first-hand sense of why they might be a little sensitive on the subject.

Finally, there have just been a bunch of other, more pressing issues to write about recently, believe it or not. So now you know why I hadn’t written about the Land O’ Lakes label change. But now that I have done so, I hope everyone is happy. I always aim to please.

That is all.

Why Does Joe Biden Ignore Fracking Science ?

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

Joe Biden and his fellow Democrats are fond of pointing fingers at others and accusing them of ignoring science. They resort to this canard whenever they are trying to avoid having to form a rational, fact-based argument around “climate change,” but they like to use it as a crutch against logic on other topics as well.

But in Sunday night’s debate, when Biden once again demonized hydraulic fracturing – or “fracking” – and promised his administration would invoke a “no new fracking” policy should he actually stumble into the White House next January, it was Biden and no one else who was ignoring real, actual science.

Ironically, in ignoring the actual science around the very safe, well-regulated industrial process of fracking, Biden was ignoring the advice of the senior officials who held regulatory sway over oil and gas-related activities while he served as Vice President. These officials include, but are far from limited to:

Steven Chu, Stanford PhD. Nobel Prize Winner (Physics) DOE Secretary

U.S. Senator Ken Salazar, (Juris Doctor from University of Michigan) DOI Secretary

Sally Jewell (Mechanical Engineering, University of Washington) DOI Secretary

Gina McCarthy (Master of Science in Environmental Health Engineering and Planning and Policy, Tufts University) EPA Administrator

Lisa Jackson (Master of Science in chemical engineering from Princeton University) EPA Administrator

Each and every one of these cabinet-level appointees by President Barack Obama testified and commented on the record on multiple occasions throughout the Obama/Biden administration that hydraulic fracturing was a safe and well-regulated process that offers no threat to groundwater and produces very little air emissions. These senior Obama-era officials were literally forced to make these admissions after spending years in the conduct of a vain search for examples of fracking polluting groundwater or releasing major, harmful air emissions.

The effort at the EPA rose to such hyperbolic levels that one EPA Region 6 administrator, former SMU professor, Dr. Al Armendariz, was removed after his allegations of groundwater contamination by Range Resources were proven to be false. However, that proof did not prevent the State of New York from using Armendariz’s findings in its own doctored report that was used to justify banning fracking within its state borders.

Mr. Biden loves to talk about his years of serving as Vice President to President Obama. Yet, when it comes to fracking and the science his own administration developed and communicated during those 8 years in office, the former VEEP seems to have developed a mental block.

But no worries – we will continue to remind him – and you – of the real, extremely well-developed body of science that surrounds this safe and well regulated industrial process. Because facts are stubborn and important things, especially during troubling times such as these.

Trump’s Texas Primary Turnout Was Nothing Short of Amazing

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

Yes, friends, Donald Trump did just fine in Texas on Super Tuesday, despite what Lt. Col. Allen West said. – I know this is going back in time a bit now, but readers continue to send me notes of concern about an “analysis” posted by Lt. Col. Allen West at his website after the Super Tuesday primary in Texas. In that piece, with the clickbait headline of “Super Tuesday Results From Texas: It Ain’t Pretty,” Mr. West contends that the President didn’t do well in the Lone Star State, based on vote count comparisons with the field of Democrats, which then still consisted of at least 8 contenders.

Here’s an excerpt from the piece:

Ever since I was a little boy, I have always enjoyed math. It was always a treat solving equations and figuring out solutions based upon formulas. Regardless of the common core math fallacy, there are objective truths, and they can be found in the study of mathematics. I suppose that was why being a US Army Field Artillery officer was the perfect fit for me, figuring out firing solutions to put “steel on target.” Back in the day, we had to do our computations, under time constraints, with tabular firing tables and slide rules . . . those were the days.

Numbers tell a story when you know what to analyze, and they provide insight and the ability to develop plans and strategies. Therefore, our campaign staff for Texas GOP Chairman decided to take a look at some numbers from the Super Tuesday primary election here in the Lone Star State. We believed the results would tell us a story, but the story we uncovered is not a good one.

I think it is time those living in a delusional fantasy land stop kidding themselves, and realize that, well, yes, “Houston, we have a problem.” Now, I am not an alarmist, certainly not one to panic, but I am a realist. And, it is time we get real about what is happening, politically, in Texas.

It is, sad to say, a repeat of what the progressive socialist left has been doing in other once strong, conservative states.

The data found below comes from the Texas Secretary of State website. You can also see the results by county by party. This is all open-source data that anyone can find, research, analyze, and assess. What we did was to look at the major population centers in Texas, by county, and several surrounding counties, to provide a picture of what happened in this primary election cycle.

By comparison, we looked at three rural (lower population) counties. This is the data we found posted as of Thursday, March 5th. Here is what we found, with “us” meaning Republicans:

STATEWIDE (Texas) – updated 
D – votes cast – 2,076,046
R – votes cast – 2,008,385
THEY OUT VOTED us by roughly 68K
 
Harris (Houston) – registered voters 2,385,906
D – 321,903 votes cast 13.49% turnout
R – 192,985 votes cast 8.09%  turnout
THEY OUT VOTED us by roughly 129k people 

The piece goes on and on, detailing the turnout in several other big counties in Texas, but you get the picture: Because the 8 Democrats pulled more total votes than a President running essentially unopposed for re-election, that means Trump is in trouble in the Red State of Texas.

No, not really.

Look, this is really kind of simple. Texans have a long history of cross-over voting in the GOP and Democrat primaries, especially in years in which an incumbent president is running for re-election and the other party has a contested primary going on. We have a couple of 21st century examples to look at in this regard.

First, there was 2012, when Barack Hussien Obama His Own Self was running unopposed for re-election. Here are the official vote totals in that primary election:

Democrats: 590,164

Republicans: 1,449,447

So, in a state in which the Republicans that year held a statewide advantage of about 10-15% of the vote, the contested GOP primary between Mitt Romney, Ron Paul, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and an assortment of others out-polled Obama by roughly 160%, as hundreds of thousands of Democrats crossed over to vote in the GOP presidential primary, and thousands of others just stayed at home.

Then, there was 2004, when incumbent Texan George W. Bush was running for his re-election against a Democrat field consisting of John Kerry, John Edwards, Howard Dean and assorted other miscreants and grifters. Here are the official vote totals in that primary:

Democrats: 839,231

Republicans: 687,615

Here we see Democrats out-drawing the Republicans by about 33% in a state in which the GOP held an even larger overall advantage than in 2012. Why? Because thousands of people who would normally vote Republican either crossed over to participate in the contested Democrat primary or stayed at home due to lack of interest. That 33% margin for the contested Democrat race that year compares to an edge of just 1.7% in 2020. 

Now, let’s compare total turnout increase between 2020 and 2004, which is the most relevant case given that we have a GOP incumbent president in both years. Where the Democrat vote total was up by an impressive 150%, Trump’s total votes were right at 200% higher than the total Bush received in 2004. That is an amazing shift in just 16 years.

Col. West is right when he says that “we must be concerned about the progressive socialist expansion from these major population centers.” That’s nothing new in Texas, but its advance has been reducing the GOP advantage in the state over time. But let’s be honest: Overall, his post is a fright piece containing little if any real analysis designed mainly to attract clicks from readers.

Judging from our own readers here at the Campaign Update, West’s piece did have its desired effect of raising a great deal of concern from conservative Texas voters, and hey, that’s not a bad thing. But when you look at this year’s results and examine them through the prism of history and the dynamics of this year’s campaign, the ability of President Trump to accumulate more than 2 million votes in a basically uncontested primary in Texas this year is nothing short of amazing.

Texas is a Red state, and it is going to remain a Red state for the foreseeable future.

Warren Withdraws, Taking Any Notion of Democrat “Diversity” With Her

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

For Democrats, diversity is their strength. Oh, wait… – Man, the pickings for mocking hypocritical, demented Democrat frauds sure are getting slim now. Tom Steyer – gone! Preacher Pete – gone! Klobuchar – gone! Mini-Mike – gone!

And now, as of this morning, no more Fauxcahontas! No more Lieawatha! No more Princess Little Big Mouth Always Running! Gone, all gone! And in just the last 6 days!

Democrats four years ago: “Trump is 69! He’s just another old white guy who’s too old to be president!!!!!!”

Democrats as of today: “I’m voting for one of the 78 year-old pasty-faced white guys!!!!!!!”

*sigh*…

Yes, I know: Tulsi Gabbard – who unlike Lieawatha, really is an actual minority candidate – is still in the race. But be honest: Nobody, and I mean NOBODY, thinks that Tulsi Gabbard is a serious contender for the 2020 Democrat nomination. Not even Tulsi believes that.

The once-25-man-and-woman-and-presumably-myriad-other-fictional-gender field of Democrat candidates has now, at long last, boiled down to a one-on-one contest between Quid Pro Joe and The Commie. Which, come to think of it, was exactly what the polls have been showing would be the likely outcome all along.

Which only serves to prove that, as always, Democrats were just giving lip service to any notion of having real “diversity” in their desperation to throw up someone, anyone, to be their nominee to challenge President Donald Trump in the fall. If Democrats voters truly cared about “diversity,” after all, it wasn’t like they didn’t have plenty of potential choices, any one of whom would have had at least as good a chance of prevailing in the general election as either of the two last geezers standing.

But the truth of the matter is that, to most Democrats, all this “diversity” talk is really nothing more than a virtue-signaling opportunity. If they were really anxious, for example, to nominate the first Black woman, what was wrong with Kamala Harris? I mean, other than being a horrible campaigner and clueless cretin? If it’s all about “diversity,” shouldn’t truly caring voters ignore those realities as they’ve ignored them about Biden?

If Democrat voters really, truly gave a damn about nominating a gay man, how come Preacher Pete could never attract above 8% national support in the polls? If Democrat voters cared about being the first to put forward an Hispanic nominee, what was wrong with Julian Castro? Or hell, they could’ve gone for the fake Hispanic, Beto O’Rourke. But neither Texan could even make it to the end of 2019 before folding up their tents and going home.

The truth is that “diversity” is only a real priority for Democrat voters when it’s convenient. Barack Obama became convenient when it became clear that a) he was the only viable option other than the Pantsuit Princess in 2008, and b) that he could actually beat the execrable John McCain in the general election. Democrat voters were all about “diversity” in that case.

The Fainting Felon became convenient in 2016 when it became clear that she was the only thing standing between their party and a takeover by The Commie and his violence-promoting hoards. So, they were all about “diversity” back then.

But now? Now, Democrat voters don’t really much care about their precious “diversity,” because it isn’t at all useful to their goal of beating President Trump. So, to hell with “diversity,” let’s nominate one of these old, pasty-white geezers and see if he can beat the bad Orange Man. No virtue-signaling there – just a crass and ruthless pursuit of political power, which is really all Democrats care about in any event.

“Diversity” is great when it’s convenient to that pursuit of power. This year, it isn’t.

And so, Fauxcahontas will now slink back to her teepee to lick her wounds and patiently wait to see which geezer offers the most wampum for her endorsement.

We will all anxiously await her smoke signals.

That is all.

Democrats Desperately Unhappy that America is Doing So Well

Guest piece from Karen Kataline

Ahead of Super Tuesday and after winning his first-ever primary contest in South Carolina, Joe Biden said, “We need to build on the coalition and the legacy of the most successful presidency in our lifetime, Barack Obama.” He then corrected himself:  “The Obama-Biden Presidency.”

As Bill Clinton might say, I guess that depends on what the meaning of “success” is.

If the goal of the previous administration was to increase poverty and racial tension, hatred of the police and of America, subversion of the rule of law, kicking Israel in the teeth, and making more people dependent on government than ever before, then Voila! That’s exactly what he accomplished.

By that measurement, I will concede that the Obama/Biden Administration was indeed successful. Many including myself, don’t believe the aforementioned outcomes were unintentional.

Nevertheless, Democrats must run against Trump’s real and measurable accomplishments to have anything to run on at all. After less than one term, we have seen a dramatic increase in the GDP, wages and employment, enforcing the rule of law, and in the confidence and prosperity of America.

All of this has been achieved against the backdrop of Democrats illustrating daily, what little regard they have for America and Americans.  Who else would openly defend Qasem Soleimani, MS-13 gang members and criminal illegal aliens?  Today’s Democrats have repeatedly supported those things that  speed the decay of civil society and keep the public angry, frightened and anxious.

Despite the fact that Obama has yet to endorse his Vice President for President, Biden will invoke Obama’s name as much as he can to win the nomination. What is completely lost on Biden and Democrats in general (don’t tell them!) is that Obama is not now, nor was he ever as popular at the end of his Presidency as they so enthusiastically claim.

There was a major downside to calling anyone who criticized Obama’s policies a “Racist!”  Lacking creativity, they continue to hurl the same invective at anyone who supports Donald Trump’s policies.

Cultural bullying works because most people want to avoid attacks and conflict. so they keep quiet and they lie to pollsters. That’s one of the reasons Democrats were so blindsided by Trump’s stunning win in 2016.  Like so many other Democrat strategies employed to weaken and then destroy Trump, that backfired “bigly.”

Here’s another example: We know much more now about Obama’s multi-pronged attempt to sabotage Donald Trump before and after his successful campaign. Trump is President today in part, because of Barack Obama and the policies we weren’t allowed to criticize.

Who in their right mind would want to return to the misery and malaise of the Obama years?  I know one political party that would.

Regardless of who emerges as their nominee, Democrats will have a tough time trying to convince voters that Trump’s success is really failure and Obama’s failure was really success.

I may be overly optimistic, but I think that will backfire too.

Harvey Weinstein Now Locked in a New York Prison – Just Like Jeffrey Epstein

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

Is it time to start the new #WeinsteinDidntKillHimself hashtag yet? – With Harvey Weinstein now headed off to prison on Rikers Island in New York City and holding so many deep, dark secrets about powerful Democrats and Hollywood figures in his creepy head, the countdown on how many days will pass before he suffers some form of highly-suspicious death has begun. Who knows? Maybe he will “Epstein” himself soon, or be the only person in a very crowded prison to somehow contract the Coronavirus. That would be, like, totally believable.

Weinstein is a man who was a huge Democrat fundraiser and donor for a quarter century that spanned the duration of the Clinton and Obama presidencies. The beneficiaries of his largess include the Fainting Felon, Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self, John Kerry, Al Franken, Cory Booker, Al Gore, Bill Clinton, the Clinton Foundation, the Democrat National Committee, and as mentioned in yesterday’s Evening Update, Michael Bloomberg.

Over that quarter century, Weinstein hob-nobbed with all of these people, took trips with many of them, organized massive Hollywood fundraisers for them, held parties in their honor, and even, in the case of the Obamas, hired their 16-year-old daughters as interns. This is a guy who knows where all the Democrat bodies are buried, including Seth Rich’s and Jeffrey Epstein’s in all likelihood.

The frequency with which people in Weinstein’s bulbous shoes end up dying in highly-mysterious circumstances has become such a visible national phenomenon that we now have national figures semi-joking about it. As an example, former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, recently pardoned by President Donald Trump, issued this nervous tweet last night:

To be clear, Blago is one of the rare people who find themselves in his particular circumstance whose obvious concerns are not directed at anyone named Clinton. Remember, Blagojevich is the guy who went to prison for actively seeking bribes in the selling of the U.S. Senate seat being vacated in 2007 by one Barack Obama. And here’s the deal: The record appears to indicate that Obama was himself involved in that operation.

So, yeah, if Blago goes bye bye, we do all know who’s behind it. It’s just that nobody wants to say it out loud. So many people who possess inconvenient knowledge about Democrat Party heroes have died under suspicious circumstances over the last 30 years that it has long gone past the joking point.

Take a look at the current case of one Phillip Haney, a high-ranking DHS official during the Obama years who decided to turn whistleblower over what he said was the Obama Administration’s systematic efforts to cover up the infiltration of DHS and other federal agencies by radical Islamists.

Haney was found shot and killed in a park and ride lot in Amador County, California last Saturday. The pistol from which the fatal shot had been fired was discovered next to his body. The Amador County Coroner’s office quickly knee-jerked to a finding of “suicide” in Haney’s death, despite the fact that he had recently told friends that he was concerned that someone was trying to kill him.

Yesterday, the Coroner – who works for the Amador County Sheriff’s office – issued a second statement claiming that no finding of suicide had ever been issued, and that its investigation into the killing was still ongoing.

But here’s a copy of the original finding, which clearly states that the gunshot was “self-inflicted”:

Typically in English-speaking societies – which the U.S. still largely is despite the best efforts of the Democrat Party – the term “self-inflicted” as related to a fatal wound means the subject committed suicide. Either that, or perhaps the Amador County Sheriff’s Department is about to claim Haney accidentally killed himself while cleaning his gun as he waited for a bus in a park and ride parking lot.

Maybe it’s all just innocent confusion out there in Amador County, California. Hell, it probably is.

The problem, though, is that the Democrats in general and the Clintons in particular, have been surrounded for so many years by so many inconvenient people who conveniently died under highly suspicious circumstances that the accumulation of events long ago stretched far past the point of credulity. It’s happened so many times related to the Clinton that “Arkancide” has become a popular term in American culture.

It’s all very much like the Kennedy Assassination: In order to believe the official version that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in the killing of the President that day, one has to ignore literally hundreds upon hundreds of odd coincidences, witness statements, known associations, contradictory forensic evidence and dozens of outright admissions by people claiming to have been participants.

So, call me a conspiracy theorist if you like, but at some point the weight of accumulated evidence simply overwhelms the official narrative. That’s where the Clintons, Obamas, and the DNC have arrived with all of these instances of inconvenient people dying very convenient – and suspicious – deaths.

Harvey Weinstein’s lawyers appeared on “The Story” with Martha Macallum last night, and expressed their concerns about how their client’s “health” might be affected while in prison. They have every reason to be very, very concerned.

#WeinsteinDidntKillHimself. Might as well get it started now.

Could Amy Klobuchar Emerge From the New Hampshire Pack?

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

I know, I know, but don’t laugh.  – The Democrat Party has a long history of seeing surprise candidates emerge out of the New Hampshire primary. What’s interesting about this history is that the “surprise” has often not come with who won the primary, but in a candidate who finished as a surprisingly strong also-ran.

In 1972, Edmund Muskie won the primary as he was predicted to do, but it was radical-leftist candidate George McGovern who stole the thunder coming out of the Granite State, finishing in a surprisingly strong second place with over 37% of the vote. McGovern rode the momentum of that strong second place showing all the way to the nomination, culminating his year with an historic landslide loss to Richard Nixon.

In 1976, Jimmy Carter defied the pre-primary polls, narrowly defeating both Mo Udall and Birch Bayh to become the clear front-runner in the race for the nomination.

Colorado Senator Gary Hart shocked the pundits with a big win in New Hampshire over Walter Mondale in 1984. But it was the second-place finisher who ended up winning the nomination and the right to be the Democrats’ sacrificial lamb against Ronald Reagan.

Senator Paul Tsongas entered the 1992 New Hampshire primary with a strong polling lead over a crowded field, and to no one’s surprise, ended up winning. But it was Bill Clinton who stole the show, coming in second after having been basically written-off by all the “smart people” in Washington following a virtual no-show in the Iowa Caucuses. In his speech that evening, Clinton declared himself to be the “comeback kid,” and a fawning national press corps fell in love with him. The race for the nomination essentially ended that night.

Many will not remember that the Pantsuit Princess actually made a comeback of her own in New Hampshire in 2008, narrowly winning the primary following a poor showing in Iowa of her own. But despite losing, Barack Obama His Own Self stole the show with a powerful speech, and the same corrupt media that had jumped on the Clinton team in 1992 immediately signed up to play a similar role on Team Obama.

The Commie won big in New Hampshire in 2016, capturing 60% of the vote to 37% for the Fainting Felon. But by then the Clinton camp owned the DNC lock, stock and barrel, and succeeded in rigging the process against Sanders for the rest of the way.

So, who’s going to be the surprise of this year’s primary? It could very well be Amy Klobuchar, Senator from [checks notes] Minnesota. No one really took a Klobuchar candidacy seriously when she decided to enter the race over a year ago, and who knows – maybe last week’s 13%, 5th place finish in Iowa will turn out to have been her high water mark in the race.

But I keep getting this pesky feeling that she might surprise us.

Klobuchar has had a hard time raising money; she isn’t a flashy person who gets attention by shouting or cussing or making outrageous statements like so many of her competitors do; and she carries with her the baggage of a reputation as being one of the most abusive bosses on Capitol Hill. This is not an admirable person, but hey, she’s a Democrat so that doesn’t matter.

But she has basically become this race’s tortoise, plugging slowly but steadily behind a field of hares, slowly gaining ground on the field as they go off on their tirades and tangents. The photo that accompanies this piece captures the essence of her candidacy perfectly, standing there calmly, with a disapproving look on her face, in the midst of a pack of braying jackasses. It reminds me of the look my dear mother used to get when she would catch me and my brothers fighting in the back yard.

That photo is from last Friday’s debate, during which Klobuchar, by all accounts, had a pretty strong showing. I wouldn’t know, because I just cannot bring myself to waste 2-3 hours watching those things. But that seems to be the consensus.

Klobuchar has also been drawing some pretty strong crowds this week in New Hampshire, at least “strong” in the context of this Democrat race, where getting a high school gymnasium half-filled with voters and staff constitutes a “strong” turnout.

Klobuchar’s other main asset as a candidate is the storm that constantly brews around her in the form of the three braying jackasses in that photo, along with Preacher Pete and Faucahontas. Think about it: Klobuchar is the only candidate among those six who has not had a nickname bestowed upon her by President Donald Trump.

Finally, there is Klobuchar’s reputation as being a “moderate” among this field of leftist lunatics. As Joe Biden and his “electability” image rapidly implode, all of his voters are going to be looking to land somewhere. It seems to be that Klobuchar fills that bill better than any of the other candidates on the New Hampshire ballot, which does not include billionaire Mike Bloomberg.

All of these factors are combining to give me a sneaking suspicion that, when the dust settles late Tuesday evening, Amy Klobuchar might well be this year’s “surprise” coming out of New Hampshire. She isn’t going to win – The Commie almost certainly will do that unless the DNC can figure out a way to defraud the vote as it did in Iowa – but given the shifting dynamics in the field this week, it is conceivable she might receive more votes than Quid Pro Joe and/or Fauxcahontas.

Finishing ahead of either of those two would qualify Klobuchar as a “surprise.” Beating both of them would constitute a shock to the Democrat system. Either place would rocket her up to the top of speculation about being a running mate for the eventual nominee.

Tomorrow will be very, very interesting.

That is all.

A Nation Awaits the Next Democrat/Media-Concocted Hoax

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

Tired of all this WINNING yet? – Apparently, Hollywood is. At last night’s Academy Awards ceremony – which I didn’t even know was happening until about 8:00 in the evening – the voters gave the award for Best Picture to some movie from South Korea. I’m sure it’s a fine movie, at least as far as movies go these days, but wow, the film industry in South Korea is now turning out higher-quality films than the film industry in California? That’s rather a stunning admission for the Academy to make.

Who is this Milton Keynes fellow, and how can we get in touch with him? er, or her? – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continues to make news for all the wrong reasons. Last week, she was in the headlines for delivering a rant during which she made it clear that, despite her claimed multiple college degrees from Boston University, she has no idea what a metaphor is. On Sunday, this claimant to a bachelor’s degree in economics said that her, like, totally favorite famed economist and stuff, or something, is, like, that whole Milton Keynes? You know? He’s like totes fleck and stuff, or something.

The problem is, of course, that no one can find any record of any economist named Milton Keynes ever actually living, at least not on earth.

I swear I don’t make this stuff up:

Obviously, the poor dimwitted soul confused the names of John Maynard Keynes and Milton Friedman, both of whom actually are famed economists, and both of whose names AOC likely had to memorize in preparation for a test or two while she was obtaining her obviously worthless “degree” from Boston U. Her handlers need to quit letting her go off-script. Every time she attempts to ad lib something, this is the kind of stuff that happens.

So, what will the next Democrat/media hoax be? Any guesses? – Now that the whole Ukraine/impeachment hoax has come and gone, we are left to wonder what new hoax the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies will devise next. In preparation for this piece, I went back through the last four years and compiled a list of the various hoaxes the Democrat/media propaganda complex has already run against the President.

Thus far, we have had to live through the following:

The Russia Collusion hoax

The Trump is Crazy hoax

The Kavanaugh Nomination hoax

The Charlottesville/”Fine people” hoax

The Porn Star hoax

The Playmate hoax

The Creepy Porn Lawyer hoax

The Emoluments Clause hoax

The Jussie Smollett hoax

The Trump’s a Racist hoax

The Trump is AntiSemitic hoax

The Ukraine/Impeachment hoax

Now, this is most likely not even a comprehensive list – I’m sure I’ve failed to mention several additional hoaxes that our despicable fake news media has worked hand-in-glove with the Democrats to concoct against this President and his Administration. This has been a never-ending, constantly-evolving process that really began as soon as Trump’s campaign was announced way back in 2015.

So, it’s obvious the Democrats have nothing else, which leads to the question: What hoax will they mount next?

San Fran Nan appeared to signal their intentions at the literally insane press conference she gave last Thursday morning in the wake of the Senate vote on acquittal. During that wildly disturbing presser, she mentioned at one point that she thought the President “seemed to be sedated” during his speech. She also spent a great deal of time trying to make the case that the current booming economy was something President Trump inherited from Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self.

Naturally, these statements led to much speculation that the Democrats and their media toadies were about to bring us a new hoax, i.e., the Trump is Drugged hoax. Or maybe they were about to leap off the cliff for good and try to go back and re-litigate the slowest recovery from a recession in U.S. history, which is what really happened during the Obama years, as that administration’s Soviet-style, command-and-control regulatory agenda choked the life out of what might have otherwise become a massive, real economic recovery following the Great Recession.

Oddly, though, there has been almost no followup from either the Democrats or their corrupt media toadies on either front. That could be because there were just too many other relevant news events to cover, as the Democrat Party committed political harikari in Iowa and the Trump Administration just kept on WINNING, bigly.

Or, it could be that Pelosi, who herself very often appears to be drugged – mostly with cheap vodka – was just engaging in a little projection during that press conference. It certainly wouldn’t be the first time that happened.

Or, here’s a thought, it could just be that the Democrats as a party have no idea where to go next, and if they’re lost, then their media toadies are going to be lost, too. That may be why, for the first time in really almost five years, the Democrat/media propaganda complex appears to be dead in the water, without a major hoax currently in play.

Regardless of the reasons behind this pause in hoaxery (I don’t think that’s a word, but I’m going to go with it anyway), we can be sure that it is only temporary. The Democrats have no choice but to keep running hoaxes at this President because they certainly cannot run on their policy record, which is non-existent during this Administration.

Lord knows they can’t leave it to their clown show presidential field to set their Party’s national agenda. The economy-and-society-destroying nonsense being tossed out into the public domain by that collection of radical lunatics, if left out there in a vacuum for the public to consume, would lead to the Democrats’ most crushing electoral disaster since 1984.

So, expect another hoax to start percolating up this week, especially after The Commie wins the New Hampshire primary. The hoaxes we’ve seen thus far have typically been started with an anonymously-sourced hit piece in either the New York Times or the Washington Post, so keep a close eye on those two Democrat propaganda outlets.

We don’t know right now what the hoax will be, but we can be certain that it is coming.

That is all.
