Friday News Roundup: China Virus Propaganda and Democrat Election Fraud Proof Abounds

With Quid Pro China Joe and his fake Office of the President-elect now advocating a 6-week lockdown and shutdown of the entire U.S. economy, this seems a great time to remind everyone that today is Day 242 of Anthony Fauci’s “15 Days to Flatten the Curve” strategy implemented last March.

Yeah, let’s double down on that fiasco.

Today, we are being told that a national “mask mandate” would save 100,000 lives or more, not just by Biden people, but by Fauci and the snakes at the CDC. But my home state of Texas has been living under a mask mandate for the last five months, yet the number of new “cases” – a fake term with a constantly-shifting definition – has skyrocketed in recent weeks. The same story is true in many other states around the country.

Thus, what we are really being told by these corrupt puppets is that an utterly-failed strategy that has been in place for months will suddenly become successful and life-saving if only we make it a national mandate.

This is an utter, complete and blatantly transparent lie, just like pretty much everything else we have been told about this viral gift from China.

How reliable are those COVID tests? – Don’t ask me, ask Elon Musk:

Oh.

Meanwhile, Fredo’s big brother Andrew Cuomo comes out with this bit of propaganda, conveniently timed to support the Democrat Party’s effort to shut down Thanksgiving:

If you believe a word of this, you are a huge part of the problem in America today. Stop falling for Nazi-style propaganda, which is ALL THIS IS.

The only true things we have been told about this virus by government officials are:

– The virus is real;

– The virus is deadly;

– The virus is especially dangerous to certain specific groups of people in our society;

– The virus is not dangerous at all to about 90% of Americans;

Everything else we have been told, every “remedy” suggested by the Faucis and Birx’s of the world, has been nothing but Nazi-style propaganda aimed at implementing mass population control by despotic government authorities.

This will all only get worse in a Biden/Harris Harris/Biden administration.

God help us.

You want prima facia proof of massive voter fraud committed by Democrats?  – Take a look at this statistic from Georgia: In that state, right at 283,000 ballots only contained votes for the presidential race. Of that huge number of ballots, 99.993% were cast for Joe Biden.

That is a statistical impossibility, no more probable than the huge ballot dumps in Michigan and Wisconsin of 6,000 or 23,000 or 138,000 ballots ALL marked for Biden. The odds of any of these outcomes happening in the real world are in the trillions to 1 against their being legitimate.

In their recount and audit, Georgia officials should pay special attention to those 283,000 ballots.

This was not the victory you may think it was…yet. – In Pennsylvania, a state judge ruled in favor of the Trump campaign that Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar illegally extended the election deadline, but only related to one specific manner.

From a report at JustTheNews:

A Pennsylvania judge on Thursday ruled in favor of the Trump campaign, ordering that state election officials cannot count ballots that were cast provisionally by voters who did not have proof of identification and then subsequently failed to provide ID by Nov. 9.

Existing Pennsylvania law states voters have until six days after the election – in this case Nov. 9 – to “cure” problems with a ballot, including a lack of identification.

But just weeks before the election, the state’s Supreme Court ruled that mail-in ballots could be accepted up to three days after Election Day, or through Nov. 6. By then Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar – just two days before Election Day –announced that proof of ID could be provided up until Nov. 12.

The state judge ruled that Boockvar “lacked statutory authority” to make such a ruling.

[End]

Note that this specific decision will only impact a few thousand ballots.

Some blogs and fake news sites falsely reported that this decision means that all mail-in ballots postmarked within three days after Election Day would have to be tossed out, but it does not address that issue at all. That postmark deadline extension – in direct opposition to state law – was implemented via judicial fiat by the PA State Supreme Court, not by Boockvar.

The Trump Campaign has filed a separate lawsuit challenging that ruling, and that suit will almost certainly end up being decided by the U.S. Supreme Court. As a result of an earlier suit challenging that ruling, Boockvar and PA election officials were ordered by the U.S. Supreme Court to segregate all such ballots pending the election results and an ultimate decision on that legal question.

In a state in which Biden currently “leads” by 54,000 votes, there are reportedly several hundred thousand such ballots that stand at risk in this particular lawsuit, virtually all of which were ostensibly “cast” for Joe Biden. Obviously, the Supreme Court decision in this case could end up being decisive.

Are you really sure it is “muscle” she is applying? – I just want to congratulate whomever it is that runs the Twitter feed for @TheHill for coming up with this particular characterization of nature of the…ummmm…heft Stacy Abrams is applying to her voter fraud efforts in Georgia:

No, it doesn’t seem like “muscle” is at play here at all.

Our Leftist Dimwit of the Week award goes to this gal:

Where in the hell was this woman hiding throughout the general election, during which both Biden and Kamala Harris repeatedly promised to shut everything down on the pretense that it would somehow help with the China Virus? Good lord – how does this pathetic wretch get her socks on every morning? Does she even wear socks? Who cooks her meals and brushes her teeth for her?

Truly, it is absolutely impossible to underestimate the intelligence of the average leftist.

BREAKING: Biden’s Chief of Staff agrees that elections are rigged. – Great catch by Jordan Davidson at The Federalist yesterday:

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s new chief of staff pick claimed publicly that U.S. elections are rigged.

In 2014, Ronald Klain publicly replied in agreement with a tweet by Vox advertising an article headlined “68% of Americans think elections are rigged.” “That’s because they are,” he responded.

Klain’s comments echo Trump supporters and Republicans’ concerns about election integrity in the most recent election. Contrary to the narrative pushed by the left’s communications arm, the legacy media, fraud and election violations have been discovered in several key states including GeorgiaPennsylvaniaNevada, and Michigan. Some of this fraud has allegedly concerned tens of thousands of votes.

[End]

Oh. You don’t say.

That is all. It’s all I can stand.

The Atlantic Hoax is Dead – Bring on the Next Hoax!

So, The Atlantic’s “Trump hates the military” hoax died on the vine after about a 24-hour run. It died for the simple reason that Trump’s public actions consistently in favor of the interests of the U.S. military and its personnel and retirees rendered the anonymously-sourced hit piece transparently unbelievable to anyone with functioning synapses in their cranial cavity, which of course excludes China Joe Biden.

The obvious hope of the Biden/Harris campaign and its corrupt media toadies was that this particular hoax would lead thousands of Trump supporters to finally abandon him out of disgust. Yeah, that’s not going to happen.

No passenger on the Trump Train is leaping off over this story or for any other reason. The only disgust expressed by any real Trump supporter towards anyone involved in the obvious hoax is toward Atlantic editor Jeffrey Goldberg, the Atlantic’s corrupt owner who is also the poisonous Black Widow of Steve Jobs, and all the other Democrat media toadies like Jake Tapper and Jennifer Griffin who did everything they could to amplify it.

If anything, this hoax backfired on the desperate Democrats and their Unfrozen Caveman nominee every bit as badly as all of their previous hoaxes have done. You would think that they would eventually get a clue that this is really not a good strategy.

And yet, it is inevitable that the hoaxes will continue to come, right through Election Day and for the coming four years of Trump’s second term in office. And none of them will work.

Think about it: Among your circle of friends, co-workers and acquaintances, do you know a single Trump supporter who has said he/she is going to vote for Creepy Uncle McWifeMolester on November 3? Of course you don’t because those people do not exist.

The corrupt media continues to trot out this parade of “former Bush officials” and “former McCain campaign workers” and “former Romney people” who claim to be all like ‘Republicans’ and stuff and who just hate Trump and have signed a letter condemning him along with 400 of their fellow sippers of cheap zinfandel, but so what?

If you look into the backgrounds of every one of those people you will find that they are all creatures of either the DC Swamp or the political swamps in the various state capitols around the country. Their livelihoods, their professional value literally hangs on the proposition of Trump losing in November. These are the very people who Trump has already proven beyond all doubt have zero value to real Americans. None of these ‘Republicans’ voted for Trump in 2016 and not a one of them will vote for him this year.

Shocking, right?

The Atlantic hoax has failed. Miserably. Gloriously. A truly epic fail.

Lacking any other alternative, the Democrats and their media toadies will simply mount the next hoax. We don’t know what form it will take or exactly when it will come, but we do know this: It will also be an epic fail, and it will be glorious.

That is all.

The Atlantic Rolls out the Next Anti-Trump Hoax

As the election approaches, we’re back to the system of media outlets taking turns rolling out stories supporting the various Democrat narratives. Yesterday, the news-fakers at ABC turned out this little ditty:

Yes, friends, this rehash of the Democrat/Media “it’s all Russia all the time” narrative is that you should not believe your lyin’ eyes and ears when it comes to Joe Biden’s obvious advancing dementia, because it’s all just the Russians. Or something. Honestly, I don’t even know what it is – the headline was so utterly absurd and without any merit at all that I refused to even click on the link.

You go read it if you care to.

Then there’s the despicable news-fakers at The Atlantic, the dying magazine’s editor-in-chief Jeffrey Goldberg no less, who rolled out a classic pathetic hit piece Thursday. This one alleges that President Donald Trump hates the military – especially soldiers who are dead or wounded – and goes around every day finding excuses to make disparaging remarks about them.

For this obvious hoax, the Atlantic expects to you suspend disbelief, ignore what you see and hear from the President every day, and believe the “unnamed sources” upon whose alleged word the entire story is based.  These “sources” may or may not exist – you have no way of really knowing. The Atlantic, which has repeatedly been caught spreading the most heinous fake news over the last five years, expects you to trust its “journalistic ethics”, which is akin to a shark telling you to trust it not to eat you.

Within hours of the story’s breaking, at least three current and former close advisors to the President posted absolute, unqualified refutations of the allegations in it. They include General Keith Kellogg who serves as Mike Pence’s National Security Advisor:

Again we see a corrupt media outlet expecting you to ignore your lying eyes and ears and just believe them. This is just another example of how the utter abandonment by our corrupt national media of anything resembling journalistic integrity threatens our entire society.

It hasn’t been long ago that no reputable editor would have ever dreamed of going to print with an explosive story such as this based purely on cowards who refuse to reveal their names. But the media decided in 2016 that literally anything is “fair game” when going after Trump. And hey, we’re all out of “reputable editors,” and stuck with Democrat activist hacks like Jeffrey Goldberg instead.

Goldberg claims multiple sources, but the Atlantic’s track record is so sketchy that we’d be fools to believe any of them truly exist. If they do exist, can anyone doubt that, if their names were revealed, we would find loyalty to Barack Obama in their resume’? Of course we would, which is why their names will never be revealed. Again, that’s if they even exist.

This is the state of our entire news media today, and it is incredibly divisive. Struggling rags like the Atlantic, desperate for readers and web traffic, are willing to go to press with any story, no matter how absurd, if they think it could go viral.

This story did go viral, as the China bots and outrage mobs on Twitter and Facebook made sure to spread it as quickly as they could. So, the Atlantic made a little money from its advertisers for the day and may get a few new subscribers, although China bots don’t tend to buy subscriptions to dying fake news magazines.

But here’s our looming reality through November 3: We’re going to see a new fake story every day from one corrupt media outlet or another. It’s like they have a batting order that’s been written up by the DNC. This week we’ve seen the daily narrative booster story from Axios batting leadoff, the Washington Post hitting second and The Atlantic taking the batter’s box third. The ABC story mentioned above doesn’t count because it was just the 10,000th rehash of the “Russia, Russia, Russia” narrative.

Today we’ll find out which corrupt media outlet is batting cleanup. My money’s on the New York Times.

That is all.

Corrupt News Media Floats Yet Another Hoax as Cover for Fading Joe Biden

*sigh* Here we go again. – Some New York Times hack reporter named Michael Schmidt has a new book out, and it is going to serve as the germination for the latest Democrat/media hoax. This one will be called the “Did Trump Have a Stroke?” hoax.

In his book, Schmidt writes about the President’s “abrupt” trip to Walter Reed Hospital for what the White House described as a physical exam one Saturday last November. Relying on only unidentified sources, Schmidt claims that Vice President Mike Pence was notified to be ready to take over the responsibilities of the presidency by the Secret Service and goes on to allege the President had suffered a stroke.

From a piece at the utterly corrupt The Hill:

Vice President Mike Pence was told to be on standby to assume presidential powers during President Trump’s abrupt visit to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center last year, according to New York Times reporter Michael Schmidt’s upcoming book obtained by CNN.

Schmidt wrote that he learned “in the hours leading up to Trump’s trip to the hospital, word went out in the West Wing for the vice president to be on standby to take over the powers of the presidency temporarily if Trump had to undergo a procedure that would have required him to be anesthetized.”

He did not specify his sourcing for the information about the November 2019 hospital visit.

At the time, the White House said the president underwent a “quick exam and labs” as part of his annual physical exam preparing for “a very busy 2020.”

The president tweeted after his visit that his health was “very good (great!)” and that he would finish the exam in 2020.

While Pence did not take over presidential powers, Schmidt’s book raises questions about the unscheduled hospital visit, which drew speculation at the time about the president’s health.

[End]

Scumbag media figures like former Clinton spokesman Joe Lockhart immediately started up the “Trump had a stroke” drumbeat on Twitter after CNN had aired a segment on the book:

Here’s the problem with this particular scam: If the President had a stroke, he had an amazingly rapid recovery from it, given that he actually took questions from reporters the very next day and showed no signs of any ill-effects. How many of you could suffer a stroke and then face the pack of braying hyenas in the White House press corps?

The whole point of this particular exercise is an effort by the Democrats and their media toadies to attempt to offset the growing public alarm about the frailty of Joe Biden by raising health concerns about the President. A clear majority of Americans now believe that Biden is suffering the effects of advancing dementia – which he obviously is – including over 30% of Democrats, so this is the corrupt news media doing anything it can to try to provide cover for that reality.

Yesterday’s little venture out of the basement by Creepy Uncle Quid Pro Dementia China Joe did not help matters in this regard, as I talked about yesterday evening. Biden looked halting and frail just walking a few steps from his limousine to his private jet (whose private jet is that, by the way?); he stammered his way through trying to read a prepared speech from a TelePrompter, and he yet again refused to take a single question from the fawning fake reporters who follow him around like a pack of newborn ducklings.

To make the media’s mendacity even more disgusting, here is how every major media outlet in America portrayed Biden’s speech photographically at the behest of his elder-abusing campaign handlers:

Biden paints Trump as someone who 'sows chaos rather than providing order'  - ABC News

Nothing but close-up shots, flags waving in the background, formal campaign podium in the foreground, portraying the illusion that he was speaking to a large crowd.

Now, here is the reality of the setting:

Image

There’s the fading, elderly guy, almost alone in a cavernous facility of some sort, speaking only to a handful of fake reporters who wouldn’t dream of asking him a difficult question even if he agreed to take them. Not a single major media outlet showed this image or any like it to their reader or viewers. Not one.

Do you think the Trump Campaign would have received a similar courtesy from the media?

This is just one more of a million ways that our corrupt news media serves as nothing more than a support operation for the Democrats. The FEC should require the Biden campaign to report coverage like this as a campaign contribution in-kind.

That is all.

Larry Schweikart: How the 24-Hour News Cycle is Leading the Loss of the English Language

Guest Piece by America’s History Teacher, Larry Schweikart

Plenty of commentators have dealt with the lunacy that affects the English language today, from banning certain words as “racist,” “sexist,” or “something-ist.” Certainly that’s obvious to all. But there is another, more subtle change going on, even among the “friendly” or “reliable news pages.

It began when the 24-hour news cycle started to run out of, well, news. (Sidebar: How many of you want to throw a shoe at the television every time you hear that Fox News “BONG” breaking news alert—which was breaking news a week ago? And it doesn’t help that it’s oddly similar to the “Law and Order “BONG”). It took more than a decade for this development to settle in. At first, the networks filled the void with simply more talking heads, guests, and “analysts” telling you what the news was.

More recently however—I started really noticing it during the Mueller investigation—a host of non-news words began to creep into news stories. We began to see mush phrases such as

“Mueller mulling demand that Trump testify,” or “Mueller considering charging Don, Jr.” These kinds of hourly non-news stories utterly took over, for reporters weren’t supposed to know what was happening in the first place (the investigation after all—wink, wink, nudge, nudge—was to be secret. Since the Mueller team was leaking like the Titanic however, so-called journalists could not produce actual documents to prove anything. As it turned out, in fact, they had nothing to prove anything with. Instead, reporters reverted to the post-1980 favorite journalistic trick, the “unnamed source.” Realize it was not all that long ago that no reputable newspaper would ever run a piece with a single “anonymous source.” Indeed, according to a Chicago Tribune  reporter I interviewed during a foreword I wrote for Professor Jim Kuypers’ book, Partisan Journalism (2013), every major fact in a story was to be doubly sourced with public sources.

In case you didn’t notice, “mulling,” “considering,” “poised to,” “about to,” “prepared to,” “intends,” and other such mush words are utterly unprovable. “Yeah, Schweikart, Mueller intended to indict Don, Jr., but changed his mind.” Lacking any paper trail or actual documents, of course, such logic is irrefutable and every bit as meaningless or useless. After all, I intende to win both a Pulitzer and an Academy Award.

So consider a stroll through these headlines from July 26, 2020:

*(Politico) “Bass: Supporters will rally to Biden despite ‘94 Crime bill.”  (“will is future tense, and de facto can have no actual evidence. “The Dallas Cowboys will win the Super Bowl.” Um hum.)

*(www.thelibertydaily.com) “WATCH: Black man drops the mic on BLM movement.” (As interesting as this is, it is one man talking on a video on social media. He has no office, no official power to do anything.

*(Washington Free Beacon) “Illinois GOP Slams Press Corps for Failure to Press Democratic Governor on Corruption of Top Ally.” So the GOP said nasty things about the press? Maybe we should have a statue erected. Wait, those are being torn down . . . .

*(Twitchy) “I am appalled: Fromer Reagan Admin Official Mark Levin Calls out WaPo/Reagan Foundation story as ‘Publicity Stunt’. Once again, one person saying something about other people. Color me shocked.

*(Daily Political Newswire) “Eric Trump Mocks Joe Biden: ‘How Daring He is to Come Out of His Basement.’ One person mocks another. That’s hard hitting news fer ya!

*(BPR Business & Politics) “Lou Dobbs: ‘Mitch McConnell is doing a Paul Ryan. He’s about to lose the Senate.’” Again, Back to the Future.

*(New York Daily News, from October 28, 2017) “The Likely Targets in the Trump Camp of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Indictment” Hint: No one actually “in” the Trump camp was indicted. The closest was Gen. Michael Flynn, an Obama appointee.

*(Washington Post, November 14, 2017) “Sessions Considering Second Sepcial Counsel to Investigate Republican Concerns, Letter Shows.” Once again, people consider all sorts of things. I am “considering” moving to Bermuda, recording a drum solo album, and starting a major ant farm.

*(U.S. News July 22, 2020), “Democratic Group Looks to Close Trump-Biden Enthusiasm Gap.” Now, let that sink in, by the way. We have been told that Joe Biden has a massive lead in the polls. Five, ten, no make it fifteen points in Alabama!!! Why would the Democrats be worried about “closing a gap” that doesn’t exist? Unless, of course, it does and they know their guys is deader than a Thanksgiving Turkey. But the operative phrase is “looks to.” I look to lose 15 pounds and up my chess game.

*Finally, here is one via the New Hampshire Gazette via the AP from May 1, 2018: “Attorney: Mueller Team Weighing Subpoena for Trump.” I’m sure you “weigh” buying a new car vs. a trip to Vegas. This mush language is pure speculation about future events that might or might not happen.

All of these and many, many more (open Drudge or www.thelibertydaily.com for example) increasingly constitute “news,” because there is no news—at least, not nearly enough to fill up a 24/7 news cycle with thousands of internet “news” sites.  Eliminating “mush” language such as “considering,” “mulling,” “hoping to,” “planning,” ‘looking to,” “anticipating,” and so on is essential to the restoration of real news. Every story should be sourced with actual names, and two named sources required for every significant fact or claim. Finally, it wouldn’t hurt for editors to immediately bounce any story that isn’t describing something that has already happened instead of future events along a “12 Monkeys” timeline.

He is also the founder of the Wild World of History website with history curricula for teachers and homeschoolers (www.wildworldofhistory.com).

Friday News Roundup: Fauci’s Errant First Pitch, Trump Cancels Convention, and the Truth About the Portland Riots

Not to be mean, but…well, yeah, ok, to be mean because this little menace to society richly deserves it. – Dr. Anthony Fauci, the Democrat operative who has worked so hard to destroy our nation over the last four months with his constantly-shifting, always-wrong narrative about the Wuhan Virus, threw out the first pitch at the Washington Nationals game last night.

Very predictably, it all went very, very, very wrong. Watch:

So, 15 feet short and 27 feet outside – every bit as accurate as anything he has had to say about the viral plague from China. The man is consistent if nothing else.

Bob Uecker Just A Bit Outside GIFs | Tenor

But keep your social distance and wear those masks, folks! – Here’s the little menace later, setting an example for the rest of America:

Yeah, you’ll never see that photo on CNN or MSNBC.

Dr. Fauci does not just kowtow to hypocrite Democrats, he personifies them.

But never fear, the little menace was still on the job earlier in the day, doing everything he can to continue to destroy America’s economy and society, in an interview with MarketWatch.

Here’s the headline of the story:

Anthony Fauci tells MarketWatch: I would not get on a plane or eat inside a restaurant

Holy crap.

 

Speaking of #EnemiesOfThePeople, here is how the New York Times is lying to its readers about the Portland riots today:

And here is the truth about the riots and the rioters, brought to you each and every day by a real journalist, Andy Ngo:

You will never see any of that reported by the New York Times or CNN or MSNBC or any of the three broadcast network news.

Enemies of the people, one and all.

This is hysterically funny. – Watch Charlie Hurt’s face as the dimwitted Marie Harf tries to avoid the question from Harris Faulkner, and find some way to blame Republicans for what is happening in cities Democrats have run into the ground for decades:

Honestly, it’s hard to know how she manages to dress herself each day. Maybe she doesn’t.

 

The climate alarmists are going after the polar bears again. – The good news is that 20 years ago, the climate alarmists assured us that all the arctic polar bears would be gone in 15 years because of “global warming”. That not only did not happen, but the population of polar bears actually multiplied.

The bad news is that the climate alarmists – supported as always by a slavish, corrupt news media establishment – are back going for polar bear gold again. Only this time, instead of just giving themselves a mere 15 years to be wrong, they’re giving themselves an entire lifetime so that none of them will be around to be mocked when the polar bears are still doing just fine in the year 2100.

Take a gander at this:

Yeah, that’s not going to happen, either. Just your dishonest climate alarm community, supported by your corrupt, fake news media, at work.

The lies and corruption never end.

Speaking of lies and corruption, watch for a Wuhan Virus miracle in Florida. – At his press conference on Thursday, President Trump announced that the RNC is cancelling the in-person part of the Republican National Convention, which was to be held in Jacksonville, Florida.

Thus, the Democrats and their corrupt toadies in the news media have achieved their goal. Don’t be surprised if the number of new COVID-19 “cases” suddenly begins to fall in the weeks to come.

Just as you were brainwashed by the media to believe you were obligated to elect a Black president in 2008; and just as you were brainwashed by the media to believe you were somehow obligated to elect a woman president in 2016; you are being brainwashed today to utterly and completely ignore all of the real data and science about the Wuhan Virus for purely political reasons.

This is nothing new, but it does grow more intense and focused and transparently dishonest with time.

Monday News Roundup: Retail Social Justice, Broke Creepy Porn Lawyer, Kamala’s Face and More

Because nothing says “social justice” like looting some cheap Chinese crap sold by Amazon. – The riots continued in Seattle on Sunday. To demonstrate their support for “social justice” for Black people, a gang of chubby, homely, pasty-faced white people looted an Amazon store:

You could never make this stuff up, folks.

The corrupt new-fakers at the New York Times tweeted this tribute to the late Rep. John Lewis yesterday:

Nowhere in the referenced piece does the Times mention the fact that Mr. Lewis and Martin Luther King were protesting against Jim Crow policies in the South that had been implemented by pretty much exclusively Democrat Governors and state legislatures, and enforced by the armed wing of the Democrat Party, the Ku Klux Klan. Those “white mobs” the Times talks about were made up almost entirely of yellow dog Democrats.

As much as the Times loves to ignore it, the history of the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s is one of Black activists supported by liberal white Republicans fighting against the policies of the Democrat Party. Period.

The Creepy Porn Lawyer runs out of stolen money. – This will do doubt break your hearts (not). Micheal Avenatti, the media darling who CNN and MSNBC spent an entire year promoting as a legit candidate for the 2020 Democrat Party presidential nomination, is now flat, dead broke:

From a piece at the New York Post:

Michael Avenatti is broke and can’t pay his legal fees, the California attorney who has represented the discredited lawyer for more than a year claims.

Dean Steward filed a motion in federal court Saturday detailing Avenatti’s financial woes and is now asking for taxpayer help to cover his costs.

“The bottom line is that Mr. Avenatti has run out of funds, and faces a complex trial lasting as long as six weeks,” Steward wrote in a filing to the federal judge overseeing one of Avenatti’s three ongoing criminal cases.

[End]

Oh, darn. Oh, heck. Oh, hecky-darn.

Let him rot.

“What in the hell happened to Kamala Harris’s face?” – That is the question everyone on Twitter was asking on Sunday after she made an appearance on one of the Sunday morning fake news shows. Take a look at this side-by-side video and see if you can spot the difference:

In other news, plastic surgeons in Harris’s home of San Francisco are cancelling future appointments due to a severe shortage of botox. Coincidence?

There goes Chris Wallace, lying to Fox News’s viewers one more time. – During his interview aired yesterday with President Donald Trump, despicable dishonest Chris Wallace made a big production out of disputing the President’s claim that Biden supports defunding the police.

The problem for Wallace is that Biden did actually say he supports the defunding of police in one of his little-watched webcasts. Here you go:

Chris Wallace is not a journalist: He’s a propagandist, just like his Marxist daddy was before him. It’s a family tradition.

It is inexplicable to me why the President would grant an interview to Wallace. Wallace’s show is not highly-rated and you know you will not receive fair treatment from him since he views his role as that of a propagandist rather than of a reporter.

At one point in the interview, Trump told Wallace “Let Biden sit through an interview like this, he’ll be on the ground crying for mommy.” That’s true, but there are several problems with that premise:

– First, Creepy Uncle Quid Pro Farty China Joe Biden would never agree to sit down with Wallace to do an interview like the President did. Wallace in fact started the conversation with Mr. Trump by noting that he had agreed to a wide-ranging interview with no subjects off-limits. Joe Biden couldn’t last 30 seconds under those conditions.

– Second, if Biden ever did do an interview with Wallace, the subject matter would be strictly limited and Wallace would gladly accede to whatever restrictions Biden’s handlers demanded.

Because Chris Wallace is not a journalist: He’s a rank propagandist. No president should ever agree to grant an interview to such a person, and it’s a shame the President did it for Wallace.

That is all.

Sunday News Roundup: 50 Days of Portland Riots and the Resurrection of Kanye 2020

But…but…but…what about the polls????? – Jacob Miller points out just one of the many problems with the suppression polls targeting Trump voters we are seeing today:

A 9% under-sampling of GOP voters – plus, both polls also over-sampled Democrats – is going to make a big difference in the results the polls produce. Just a reminder that the ABC/WaPo poll used the same sampling aberration just 3 weeks before the 2016 election to produce a poll showing the Pantsuit Princes with an insurmountable 13-point lead over Donald Trump. Funny, though, as election day approached, the conductors of that poll steadily re-jiggered their sample in order to show the race getting closer and closer.

What would make anyone think that they aren’t doing the exact same thing this year? Stop asking me about polls, please. Thanks.

Here is what is really happening in Portland. – As Mayor Ted Miller, San Fran Nan and the entirety of the corrupt news media attempts to brainwash you into believing that the only thing the rioters in Portland are doing is paining graffiti on federal buildings there, know that they are lying to you.

Here’s what is really happening in this ongoing riot, brought to you by the intrepid real journalist Andy Ngo (@MrAndyNgo), which has now been allowed by Wheeler to continue for more than 50 consecutive days:

There is more, much more. Sadly, if you want to know the truth about what is really happening in Portland and any other place today, you must seek out real journalists like Mr. Ngo and Alex Berenson on Twitter to find it. You will certainly never get it from CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, ABC, NBC, CBS, the NYTimes or the WaPo.

As I wrote in my other piece this morning, America is in the midst of a Marxist insurgency sponsored by the Democrat Party and abetted by the national news media. Marxist mayors like Ted Wheeler are at the forefront of this insurgency. This insurgency will only continue to grow until the federal government puts it down, because the Democrat mayors and governors will never stop supporting it until they are stopped.

Is it time for the Insurrection act? – Tom Fitton, President of Judicial Watch, thinks so:

This, of course, is actually one of the goals of the Democrats are trying to achieve by allowing the rampant destruction of America’s cities. They want to be able to accuse the President of being an aspiring dictator who abuses his authority in the run-up to the November elections. What better way to justify such a charge than having their toadies in the fake news media portray any use of federal law enforcement to do the jobs these Democrat mayors refuse to allow local police to carry out as the evil Orange Man sending in the army? And hey, if thousands of people lose their businesses and more thousands lose their homes and personal property, and more than 3 dozen lose their lives to the rioters, well, that’s a small price to pay, isn’t it?

This really, truly is how today’s Democrats think, folks.

We already see that narrative taking hold in Portland. Trust me, this has been part of the Democrat plan since Day 1 of the staged and coordinated George Floyd riots. They assumed that Trump – who they portray as unstable and irrational – would immediately knee-jerk to ordering federal intervention as the rioters burned and looted Minneapolis. When he didn’t act on their cue, they though surely he would take the bait when they spread the riots to New York City and Chicago and Seattle and Austin and Portland and Atlanta and on and on and on.

But here we are after a month of the CHAZ/CHOP in Seattle, after 51 straight days of violent rioting in Portland, and the President continues refuse to buy into their strategy.

If you think they’ll just fold up their tents on this effort and now work to calm everything down, you have not been paying enough attention in recent months. Stay tuned for something even bigger to be staged.

But…but…but…we have been assured by the corrupt news media that Kanye gave up his campaign earlier this week! – They wouldn’t lie to us, would they?

Well, yeah, of course they would. Where have you been for the last 50 years?

Remember those reports from just a few days ago quoting a “source” close to Kanye West, claiming that the billionaire rap star had already folded up the tent on his presidential campaign? Yeah, that was a lie.

From a report at ABC News:

Kanye West is hitting the campaign trail.

Exactly two weeks after announcing his unlikely bid for president, the rapper announced late Saturday he will be holding the first event of his campaign in South Carolina on Sunday at 5 p.m.

The event will be held at the Exquis Event Center in North Charleston, according to a statement. It is “for registered guests only.”

Those who wish to attend will need to sign up at West’s new campaign site, kanye2020.country — though the site doesn’t appear to have a specific link to sign up for the event yet.

According to a copy of the release shared with ABC News, all attendees will be asked to sign a COVID-19 liability release form, social distance and wear a mask. West will also be holding a pre-rally press event.

Earlier in the day, West had tweeted he was looking to acquire signatures to get on the ballot in the state.

“Hi guys please sign up to put me on the ballot in South Carolina at any of these locations,” he wrote, sharing a list of locations. “You can also sign up at the website kanye2020.country.”

It’s not entirely clear how West would qualify, as South Carolina’s deadline to file signatures as an independent candidate was July 15. The state does not allow write-in candidates.

West got on the ballot in his first state earlier this week in Oklahoma. The state allows independent candidates to pay a $35,000 fee — small change for rapper and businessman who Forbes says is worth just over $1 billion — to get on the November ballot.

The Evening Wrap: A Key Supreme Court Decision and Jake Tapper Gets Something Right

Good John Roberts showed up for court today. – The Supreme Court issued a decision today that could have huge implications for the November elections. On a 6-3 vote, the Court refused to reconsider a lower court ruling that prevents Florida from restoring the voting rights of convicted felons who have not satisfied all the terms of their convictions, including fines and other financial penalties. Liberal Stephen Breyer voted along with the very unreliable “conservative” majority.

Plaintiffs had sued the state for denying the vote to felons who had served their time but failed to pay up. Under Florida law passed in 2018, felons are able to regain their voting rights when they have fulfilled all terms of their convictions.

This decision by the high court means that roughly 1 million Florida felons who have failed to satisfy their financial obligations could be unable to vote in November. Democrats and their corrupt toadies in the news media are obviously hardest hit by today’s decision.

This is a big deal.

That time when even Jake Tapper admitted kids need to go back to school this fall… – Fake Jake Tapper chided Trump critics on Twitter today to “be fair” after his colleagues in the corrupt corporate news media intentionally misquoted Kayleigh McEnany’s remarks related to COVID-19, science and returning to school at today’s White House press briefing. Tapper also corrected Sanjay Gupta when the fake doctor attempted to perpetrate the same falsehoods on Tapper’s CNN program this afternoon.

From a story at Mediaite:

Jake Tapper corrected Dr. Sanjay Gupta over his critique of White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany’s “science should not stand in the way” comment on his CNN show Thursday afternoon.

“The science should not stay in the way of this,” McEnany said in a press briefing Thursday in reference to school openings, before adding, “The science is on our side here. We encourage for localities in states to just simply follow the science. Open our schools.”

Following outrage around the comments, Tapper encouraged people to read McEnany’s full quote, writing in a tweet, “She’s arguing that the science is on the side of those who want to open them, she cites a JAMA study. I’m not taking a position on the matter but be fair.”

After playing a clip of McEnany’s statement, Tapper asked Gupta, “Where is the science on this? Because I know some of the studies, one of the JAMA studies that she referred to, what’s your reaction as a physician and parent of three children?”

“Well, first of all, I don’t think you ever want to say the science should not stand in the way of this,” Gupta responded. “I don’t know exactly what she was referring to by that or if she was just misspeaking. That sounded like an alternate facts sort of moment there.”

“If I could just say, Sanjay,” Tapper interrupted. “I think she was trying to say the science shouldn’t stand in the way because the science is on our side. I don’t know that all of the science is on their side. Certainly, this White House, their respect for science knows bounds, let’s put it that way. But I think that’s what she was getting at.”

[End]

Let’s be clear: The science is 100% on the side of reopening and getting our nation’s kids back to school this fall. There is ZERO, ZIP, NADA “science” that indicates otherwise. With pretty much every other country on earth dealing with reality and real science and reopening their schools, the only reason why any schools at any level in our country will refuse to open in the fall is pure, rank, smelly partisan politics. Dr. Anthony Fauci and others who continue to purvey panic porn and using our children as political footballs should be condemned and shunned by civilized society.

Even Jake Tapper understands the truth here. It is rather amazing his overlords at CNN haven’t shut him up about it yet.

Saturday News Roundup: NBC News is a Dumpster Fire, and Don’t Think Seattle Can’t Happen to You

This is the current state of NBC News. – Dr. Joseph Fair is a virologist who also happens to be a “medical contributor” to NBC News. Across the months of May and June, Dr. Fair made numerous appearances on the “Today” show and other NBC/MSNBC platforms to give viewers all the gory details about his long and difficult struggle with what he claimed was a case of the Wuhan Virus, COVID-19.

The only problem is, he never had COVID-19.

From a report at the Daily Caller:

Fair suggested during an interview on the “Today” show May 14 that he may have gotten the virus through his eye during a flight. He conducted the interview while in a New Orleans hospital, the Washington Free Beacon reported.

NBC News originally told viewers about the negative tests, but abandoned that part of the narrative as the story continued, according to Steve Krakauer’s “Fourth Watch” newsletter. During a June 14 interview with Chuck Todd on “Meet the Press,” no one noted that Fair had already tested negative at least five times, according to Krakauer.

“In the end, NBC’s viewers were left with two very alarming – and false – impressions,” Krakauer wrote. “First, that an expert virologist can take every precaution but can still catch COVID-19 through his eyes. False. Second, that tests can be so untrustworthy that you can have multiple negative tests and still have coronavirus.”

NBC News has not yet updated its May 14 article claiming the virologist got “coronavirus despite being in good health and taking precautions.”

[End]

Oh.

NBC News is a raging dumpster fire, but that just makes it equal to every other broadcast or cable news station outside of OANN and NewsMax.

Everything you see on any cable or broadcast network “news” program is most likely a lie. Every. Damn. Thing.

Something will be happening with Venezuela, and the U.S. will be heavily involved. – At least, that’s what President Donald Trump told an interviewer with the Spanish language channel Telemundo yesterday.

From a report at Breitbart:

Host Jose Diaz-Balart asked, “For you, Venezuela, is it Guaido, is it Maduro, is it U.S. intervention?”

Trump responded, “It’s freedom for their people. It’s freedom. Venezuela was a rich country 15 years ago, and it’s been destroyed by two people, but a system, a horrible system. … And something will happen with Venezuela. That’s all I can tell you. Something will be happening with Venezuela.”

Diaz-Balart then asked, “Through the United States?”

Trump responded, “We’ll be very much involved.”

[End]

Just a reminder that Barack Obama considered Hugo Chavez, the first brutish socialist thug ruler of Venezuela, to be a role model, and that the socialist model currently being forced on helpless Joe Biden by Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the model that turned that formerly 1st-world, wealthy nation into a 3rd world hell hole in the span of a decade.

It really doesn’t seem like something the U.S. should aspire to emulate, does it? Pay attention.

Be glad you don’t live in Seattle. – I almost started this segment by saying “pity the poor people in Seattle,” but hey, they’re the morons who elected the current Mayor, the evil Jenny Durkan, and a city council filled with radical thugs, so pity really isn’t justified, is it?

Ok, there are innocent, sensible people in that messed up town who didn’t support any of those thugs: You should expect to see a mass exodus of such people from that community in the very near future, as they flee a city that elected Democrats are making sure descends into outright chaos.

On Friday, a majority of the Seattle City Council agreed to support a proposition that would cut the police department’s budget by 50%. The plan would be to reallocate those funds to “other community needs.” It is not clear what those “other needs” are exactly, but presumably they would include lots of Unicorns and rainbows. Because these are Democrats we’re talking about here, after all.

Think about the insanity of this for a moment: Seattle is already such a lawless jurisdiction that members of the city council itself helped a group of Antifa/BLM Marxist thugs illegally seize a 6 square-block section of the Capitol Hill area – including a police precinct building – there for a solid month as the Mayor refused to allow the police department to intervene. It was only when those same Marxist thugs – again helped along by at least one member of the city council – broke into a gated neighborhood and staged an illegal protest action at the Mayor’s home that the despicable Ms. Durkan finally allowed the police to break up the illegal insurgency.

It is tempting for those of us living in distant parts of this giant country to look at the mass insanity taking place in Seattle, Minneapolis, New York City, Chicago, San Francisco, Atlanta and Portland and laugh with condescension about it all, but that is a dangerous reaction for us to take. This kind of stuff can hit very close to home very quickly.

In my home state of Texas, the Democrat morons running the city of Austin have now turned its downtown area into a homeless camp that is beginning to rival those seen in Los Angeles and San Francisco. In Houston, the Democrat Mayor there, Sylvester Turner, acted this week to cancel the Republican Party’s state convention that was to be held there, using COVID-19 as his excuse, a bare week before it was to happen. The GOP has sued, but has little hope of prevailing in time for the event to come off.

Don’t kid yourselves that the kind of nonsense you see happening in far-off states can’t happen in your state: It can, and it will very soon unless each and every one of you gets your butts up off your sofas and goes out and votes in November.

Molly McCann Debunks Another bit of New York Times Fake News

Molly McCann is of counsel at Sidney Powell, P.C., the defense firm for General Mike Flynn. On Twitter today, she took apart yet another piece of false reporting by the corrupt Democrat activists at the New York Times. It’s a brilliant take down that everyone should read.

Here is McCann’s destruction of the Times’s despicably false piece, in full:

The New York Times has no credibility as it continues to maliciously twist the truth with “reporting” that obfuscates the truth and panders downright lies. In an op-ed today, the NYT takes facts and tries to create a completely false narrative.

THREAD. @SidneyPowell1Image

Sidney Powell *did* send a letter to AG Barr last year shortly after she was retained by Gen. Flynn. She sent it confidentially to urge DOJ to correct manifest injustice. She sent it confidentially as a curtesy to the Department—giving DOJ an opportunity…
Image
…to preserve confidence in the rule of law.ImageImageImageImage
AG Barr forwarded Sidney’s letter to lead prosecutor Brandon Van Grack, who replied that there was no further Brady material outstanding (quoted at ECF No. 111, attached). Van Grack publicly filed the majority of Sidney’s letter on Oct. 1, 2019. ECF No. 122-2.Image
There was no underhanded secret here. Sidney was vocal about her view of this case long before she took on Flynn’s defense. She wrote an op-ed in February of 2018 urging Gen. Flynn to withdraw his plea.

Ironically, Sidney believed Judge Sullivan—appointed to the DDC by Clinton—was the judge best equipped and experienced to know that the prosecutors had made up the case and were hiding evidence of Flynn’s innocence, as she also detailed in a Dec. op-ed:

The NYT says that at its core the Flynn case “is a drama about who gets to mete out justice in the Trump era.” In this, at least, it is correct. The Flynn case has exposed the frightening reality that certain people will let nothing and no one stand in the way of power.
These people cast aside any semblance of honor or integrity, targeted Flynn, and sicced corrupt prosecutors on him. They were willing to tear down the rule of law and destroy the bedrock principles of justice and due process on which our system depends, all for their own…
…political purposes. Those purposes were to destroy General Flynn and the reforms he would make to the intelligence community and to topple a democratically elected President—Donald J. Trump.
The Flynn story is the story of the most breathtaking abuse of power in our nation’s history. And the (not failing, but failed) New York Times is attempting to cover-up that scandal by fabricating tales to hide the truth. But the facts speak for themselves.
Barr asked Jensen—a career DOJ attorney—to review the Flynn file and Jensen uncovered exculpatory evidence so breathtaking it has rocked the foundations of our Republic. This evidence is black and white—they ignore it, because it is so ugly and unambiguous they can’t…
…even spin it, so they pretend it never was produced. In any other time and with an even partially honest media, this story of corruption would be on every front page.
General Michael Flynn was set up by people intent on maintaining power no matter what institutions, principles, or people had to be hacked to pieces in the process. This type of false reporting from the New York Times is not just biased, it is subversive.

Right on Cue, the New York Times Tries to Mount a new Russia Hoax

Meet the new Russia hoax, same as the old Russia hoax. – The Russia Collusion hoax was based entirely on a fraudulent dossier and lies told to reporters by anonymous sources. Well, and also by reporters just making crap up out of whole cloth in many instances, but that goes without saying. The Democrats and their corrupt media toadies managed to deceive the American public for three solid years and tilt the 2018 elections using that hoax, so it’s only natural they would repeat that same model in the runup to the 2020 elections.

Meet the new Russia hoax, this one claiming that President Trump was briefed on a plan by those evil Russians to bribe Afghanistan militants to murder U.S. and coalition forces in that sh*thole country (don’t even try to prove me wrong on that assessment), and that the President did nothing to stop them. The New York Times got the ball rolling on that doozy late last week with yet another fake report based on nothing but anonymous sources who may or may not even exist. You’re just supposed to trust that the New York Times, which has filed hundreds of completely false reports about President Trump since 2015, is finally telling you the truth this time, because of their journalistic “ethics” or something.

Even more, you’re supposed to believe the Times because other corrupt media outlets like the Wall Street Journal and Washington post “independently verified” the story – i.e., they talked to the same anonymous sources, who may well have been the reporter from the Times itself. Because that’s what these corrupt political operatives masquerading as journalists do.

As with this past week’s Bubba Wallace/NASCAR noose story, if you didn’t realize within about 10 seconds that both stories are clear hoaxes, then you just haven’t been paying enough attention to what’s been happening in our country for the past four years. But most Americans are too dense to figure it out, so the President and many of his people had to waste their time issuing outright denials of this false reporting on Saturday.

As reported by the Washington Examiner, former Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell ended up in a back and forth on Twitter with despicable hack Ted Lieu:

Rep. Ted Lieu, a California Democrat, tweeted at Grenell daring him to confirm whether he did not tell Trump and Pence about a Russian military intelligence unit offering financial rewards to Taliban militants to kill U.S. troops or McEnany was lying.

“I never heard this,” Grenell shot back. “And it’s disgusting how you continue to politicize intelligence. You clearly don’t understand how raw intel gets verified. Leaks of partial information to reporters from anonymous sources is dangerous because people like you manipulate it for political gain.”

Lieu followed up by asking: “If you are telling the truth, why doesn’t White House deny bounty story instead of saying you didn’t brief @POTUS?”

Grenell replied: “All anonymous sources. And these same reporters gave us the Russian collusion hoax you still hold on to.”

Yep.

Current DNI John Ratcliffe issued this unambiguous statement on the matter:

Ok. Next!

The President of the United States tweeted this:

All true. Next!

Even Vladimir Putin and Russia accurately referred to the New York Times as “fake news”:

Header media

World news
Russia denies allegation that it offered bounties to militants in Afghanistan for killing American troops
According to The New York Times, American intelligence officials reported that a Russian assassination unit secretly offered bounties to Taliban-linked militants for killing American troops in Afghanistan. Russia responded by calling it an attempt to “invent new fake stories.”

[End]

So, you are left with either believing “news” outlets who have repeatedly lied to you and worked hand in glove with the Democrat Party to spread a series of outright hoaxes to the American public over the last four years, or believing the President, DNI Ratcliffe and Ric Grenell, who spent his entire time as DNI debunking the media’s previous Russia Hoax by declassifying documents and bring transparency in government.

This is not hard, folks.

The Media Campaign to Save Joe Biden from Debates Has Begun

If you think Joe Biden will ever debate Donald Trump, think again. – As it becomes increasingly apparent to a growing majority of Americans that the Democrat Party’s presumptive nominee, Creepy Uncle Quid Pro Farty China Joe Biden, is in the middle stages of advancing dementia, the Democrats and their corrupt toadies in the national news media must concoct some rationale for ensuring that no presidential debates take place this fall.

Enter reliable old hack, columnist Karen Tumulty of the Washington Post, to kick off what will no doubt become a focused campaign to cancel these debates in the weeks to come. Noting that the Democrats have already ensured they can keep their Hidin’ Biden strategy intact through August by canceling their physical convention, Tumulty naturally praises that decision as “wise.” In the jargon of hack WaPo columnists, that means “consistent with the current narrative.”

She then moves to her rationale for killing these debates that she and her leftwing colleagues in the fake news media have treated like sacred, near-religious experiences that must be preserved at all costs in every past campaign.

Here’s an excerpt of Tumulty’s hack reasoning:

Trump is claiming he would like to have four faceoffs with Biden, rather than the three (plus one vice presidential debate), that are currently scheduled to take place between Sept. 29 and Oct. 22.

This is not a serious proposal. Even under the best of circumstances, scheduling these much-watched events on the busy fall calendar is a difficult challenge for the Commission on Presidential Debates, which has been in charge of the process since the 1988 election.

It has to find dates that are not on Friday or Saturday nights, do not conflict with sports and other events networks are committed to, or official presidential business, such as attending the U.N. General Assembly in September. Each debate generally requires the candidates to suspend public appearances for at least a few days to prepare.

[End]

What? Why is anything in that last paragraph in any way true? Is there a law that says presidential debates can’t be held on a Friday or Saturday night? No. That’s just for TV ratings purposes which, if the Democrats and media hacks like Tumulty succeed in shutting down the economy again with their Wuhan Virus Panic Porn, won’t be valid in any event since all the bars will still be closed and everyone will be sitting at home in front of their TV getting fatter.

And what are these “sports and other events” of which she speaks? With every passing day and every false report about COVID-19 Related “cases,” the chances of any of those things actually materializing this fall grows increasingly remote.

But the most utterly laughable aspect of that paragraph is Tumulty’s fretting about the candidates having to suspend “public appearances,” as if Joe Biden actually has plans to make public appearances. His entire campaign is focused on finding ways to prevent him from making such appearances, even if that means destroying the U.S. economy and way of life to do it.

Understand that at this point, the panic porn about COVID-19 and the Biden campaign are inextricably attached at the hip. Biden can only win this election if the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies – which now basically includes all of Fox News’s non-prime time operation – can keep the public in a panic and cowering in their homes through November.

A return to lockdowns is key to everything: It keeps Trump from holding the massive rallies that were the key to his winning in 2016; it justifies Biden’s continued strategy of hiding in his basement and being physically seen by as few Americans as possible; it helps to build a rationale for a national vote-by-mail scheme which in turn would maximize voter fraud efforts by the Democrats; and it serves as media justification for canceling face-to-face, unscripted debates between the candidates.

COVID-19 Panic Porn is in fact the Democrat Party’s entire political platform for 2020. Because they simply don’t have anything else to run on.

With 80% of the Republican congressional caucus consisting of timid, spineless cowards, they might just get away with it.

The COVID-19 Data the Corrupt News Media Won’t Report

On Sunday, the U.S suffered its fewest Wuhan Virus-related deaths since March 23. If you get your news from CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times or any of the other corrupt major U.S. media outlets, you did not know that.

But it’s true: Across the entire United States, just 267 people had their deaths listed as being “COVID-19 Related”, a categorization that everyone know is grossly inflated. Take a look at this chart compiled from CDC data if you don’t believe me:

US Deaths Coronavirus

The country has been on the downside of that curve since April 18, more than two months ago, during which time the number of daily deaths has consistently and dramatically fallen. That has happened despite the fact that most states began re-opening their economies around that exact same time, despite the dire predictions from the professional purveyors of panic porn that we would see a dramatic spike in hospitalizations and deaths as the economy began to come back.

None of that happened. And because none of it happened, the media and their Democrat masters shifted focus to wailing about the rising number of “cases” as testing for the viral gift from China ramped up and hospitals and doctor’s offices began once again treating patients for non-emergency problems. These days, even Fox news focuses almost solely on the number of “cases,” for the simple reason that that is the only COVID-19 related number that is still rising.

[By the way, that word, “cases,” was intentionally and carefully chosen by the corrupt news media over what it had previously referred to as “positive tests.” Do you understand why? It’s because the term “cases” implies that a person who tests positive has had to be hospitalized, which is the disinformation they want you to believe, even though the vast majority of those testing positive never have to set foot in a hospital. Joseph Goebbels would be beaming with pride over this little trick.]

BUT WHAT ABOUT FLORIDA!!!!! you scream, since the corrupt reporters you watch and read have been screaming that at you for the past two weeks.

Well, there is this from Alex Berenson this morning:

See? The only thing that has spiked in Florida is positive tests, i.e., “cases.” Because the number of people being tested every day in Florida has risen dramatically in recent weeks, just like it has everywhere else.

BUT WHAT ABOUT THE SHORTAGES OF HOSPITAL ROOMS AND ICU BEDS!!!! you scream for the same reasons. Again, that’s not happening, not even remotely:

BUT…BUT…BUT WHAT ABOUT TEXAS!!!!! you scream because one of your panicked friends misunderstood what Gov. Abbott said last week and sent you a panicked text

Well, there’s this:

Image

Oh.

BUT HOW CAN THAT BE WHEN CASES ARE GOING UP!!!!! you scream because Jake Tapper told you to.

The answer to that is simple: The vast majority of people who contract this virus either never display symptoms or the symptoms they do display are so mild they do not require a visit to the hospital.

Since Day 1 that this pandemic became widely known in the United States, millions of Americans have been walking around with it in their systems but not displaying symptoms. But we did not have the ability to perform widespread testing for it until mid-April, so no one had any real idea of just how widespread that phenomenon is. As testing has risen and the massive number of new “cases” has risen along with it, we are getting some idea.

The main idea we are getting that really matters is that this flu virus has a death rate that is going to end up being lower than that of the common flu once all the testing has been done and the true extent of the infected population becomes firmly known.

Here are other things we now know that we did not know just two months ago:

  • There are multiple treatment regimes that are highly effective in attacking this virus, and more are being developed every day;
  • We know who the truly vulnerable segments of our population are to this virus, and know far more about how to protect them;
  • We know that anyone under the age of 45 or so who is not grossly overweight and does not have pre-existing lung or heart conditions is virtually impregnable to this virus;
  • We know that the way in which we attacked this pandemic, by issuing blanket stay-at-home orders and shutting down the vast majority of the economy, was tragically and disastrously wrong; and finally
  • We know that literally nothing Drs. Fauci and Birx told us about this virus back in March was correct. Not one word.

So, there you go – a collection of the news about the Wuhan Virus that you will not see reported today in the mainstream, corrupt news media.

That is all.

New Democrat/Media Panic Porn Push Creates Key Leadership Test for Trump

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

Panic Porn propaganda campaign pays off with tanking stock markets. – The Democrat/Media Axis of Propaganda’s latest Wuhan Virus-related panic porn campaign is already achieving two of its major goals: 1) It has halted the upward momentum in the stock market as investors start to fear a return of lockdowns in states that have already reopened; and 2) it is providing corrupt Democrat governors like New York’s Andrew Cuomo with a convenient excuse to renew crackdowns on elements of the public he doesn’t like.

The Dow tanked 1,800 points on Thursday in reaction to the latest ham-handed presentation by Federal Reserve Board Chairman Jerome Powell, but recovered a third of that loss on Friday as the positive inertia behind the market’s rise regained traction. But a weekend of Democrat/media panic porn has investors spooked once again, and the Dow futures are threatening to wipe Friday’s gains off the board. As usual, bad news for America is considered good news by the Democrats and their corrupt toadies in the news media.

As for Cuomo, let’s start by showing you the scene in Brooklyn yesterday, about which he expressed zero concerns about social distancing or wearing of masks:

This, folks, was a “Black Trans Lives Matter” rally, attended of course by about 90% brain dead white New York liberals. Governor Cuomo no doubt celebrated that outpouring of rank stupidity.

Here is what Cuomo did choose to complain about:

That’s right: Cuomo has zero concerns about 10,000 people closely packed together and chanting mindless slogans in Brooklyn, because those are his people. That’s his voter base. But try to make a living cutting hair or let more than 25% capacity into your bar, and he’s ready to bring out the state police to fine you and shut you down. Because people who actually make a living, run a business and pay taxes in New York State are not necessarily part of his v0ter base.

See how that works?

The news media – including Fox Business, by the way, on which guest host Degan McDowell led off Mornings With Maria this morning with a 3-minute panic porn report – continues to pound on what it calls an “uptick in ‘cases’ and hospitalizations related to the coronavirus’ despite the fact that those “upticks” are isolated to a few states and are the results of two overriding factors:

  • we continue to do more and more testing as time goes on, which will naturally lead to more positive results; and
  • hospitals in most states are now able to admit patients for elective and non-emergency surgeries, and the first thing they do with any of those patients is to test them for the Wuhan Virus. Regardless of the reason why the patient checked into the hospital, if he or she tests positive, the case is then tagged as being “COVID-19 related.” You can be there for a knee replacement, a tonsilectomy or to have warts removed, but to the CDC, you are listed as a coronavirus patient.

Even in spite of all of the CDC’s various efforts to ensure over-reporting of hospitalizations and deaths related to COVID-19, here is a chart of the official CDC data:

As you can plainly see, the numbers of deaths and “cases” continue to steadily fall nationwide. Yes, there are a few states that are seeing “upticks,” but even with all the intentional over-reporting, the nationwide trend is unmistakably downwards.

The stated goal of all of the irrational shutdowns – “flattening the curve” – as undoubtedly been achieved. There is simply no science-based or data-justified reason for any governor to renew stay-at-home orders and other artificial means of denying their citizens the right to make a living. Any governor who chooses to do that is motivated purely by rank partisan politics.

The third goal of this renewed Democrat/media panic porn push is of course attempting to prevent President Trump from re-starting his campaign rallies, the first of which is scheduled this coming Saturday in Tulsa. That’s just 5 days away, and you can be sure that the entirety of the media establishment and every Democrat in America will be pushing the panic button harder and harder as this week progresses.

It is vitally important that the President refuse to give in to this obvious, blatant push to further damage our country. He must not give in to the massive pressure that will be coming his way and ramping up all week. This is the crucial moment in which he will either show real, true leadership in the face of adversity or give in to the mob. If he chooses to do the latter, then frankly, he will deserve whatever he gets at the polls in November.

He’s never let us down to this point, and personally, I can’t wait to watch his speech in Tulsa come Saturday.

That is all.

Wednesday News Roundup: Texans Can Take Care of Texans; The Rest of the Country Needs Help

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

In case you’re wondering why Texas Governor Greg Abbott, in a press conference yesterday with the police chiefs and mayors of Fort Worth and Dallas, said that he would not be asking for military assistance from the federal government to quell any out-of-control demonstrations in our state, all you need to see is this photo taken last night in the halls of the Texas Capitol Building by Glenn DeShields:

Image may contain: indoor

Those are Texas Department of Public Safety troopers, sleeping on the marble floors. I have walked those floors many times. They are 100% firm – they don’t give an inch, just like the officers getting a few moments of rest on them.

“So we will not be asking the United States military to come into the state of Texas because we know that Texans can take care of Texans. We have tremendous police forces in Dallas, in Fort Worth, in the surrounding suburbs across the entire state. We have an abundance of resources that are being provided by the Texas Department of Public safety,” said Abbott.

God Bless Texas.

Why doesn’t this Black life matter? – Dave Dorn, a retired captain of the St. Louis Metro Police Department, was murdered by thugs who were looting a pawn shop where he was working security on Tuesday. Mr. Dorn happened to be a Black man, as were the vicious thugs who killed him.

Because Captain Dorn was killed by black men, the national news media is essentially ignoring this story. A web search indicates that only ABC News bothered to file even an online story about this senseless killing, and it was reported in the context of several police killings and injuries that happened on Tuesday, with this headline: “Small-town police chief killed as officers in 3 cities wounded during violence at George Floyd protests.”

To make the story even more demeaning to Captain Floyd’s memory, it does not even mention the fact that he was a Black man. I kid you not. Read it for yourself.

Our news media is an existential threat to our country.

Here’s your Ironic Story of the Day. – Check out this tweet issued by the Associated Press on Tuesday:

Just a reminder that Joe Biden has already spent 16,089 days of his life in public office. In all of that time, his main contribution to addressing “institutional racism” was to co-author the 1993 crime bill that… wait for it … targeted Black men.

But he’s now the Democrat Party’s Great White Hope for solving all the problems faced by America’s Black community. If you’re Black and you fall for this, you truly do get what you deserve. Stop this madness.

Speaking of corrupt news media… – The Secret Service guard station that sits just outside the White House grounds was burned last night by the rioters in Washington DC:

A web search shows not a single story on this incident from our national news media. NOT ONE.

But hey, that’s not fake news, so… – One story that the entire national media focused on Tuesday is – predictably – completely fake. It is the story still being pushed this morning that the federal Park Police, in clearing the path for President Trump and his entourage to make the walk from the White House to St. John’s Church on Monday afternoon, used “tear gas and rubber bullets” to intimidate the violent rioters who have caused so much damage and injured at least 60 Secret Service and other law enforcement personnel.

I watched it all happen live, and it was very clear that none of that happened. The Park Police issued a statement Tuesday clarifying what actually did happen:

“At approximately 6:33 pm, violent protestors on H Street NW began throwing projectiles including bricks, frozen water bottles and caustic liquids,” the USPP said in a statement. “The protestors also climbed onto a historic building at the north end of Lafayette Park that was destroyed by arson days prior. Intelligence had revealed calls for violence against the police, and officers found caches of glass bottles, baseball bats and metal poles hidden along the street.

“As many of the protestors became more combative, continued to throw projectiles, and attempted to grab officers’ weapons, officers then employed the use of smoke canisters and pepper balls when protestors did scatter from the area.”

[End]

Reporters from NBC and the Washington Post continue to spread their fiction this morning. Because they are corrupt, fake-news-promoting enemies of the people. That’s what they are.

For those of you still holding out hope that Salt Lake City U.S. Attorney John Huber might still produce some shocking indictments of Obamagate bad actors, the President of the United States would like to disabuse you of that silly notion:

Remember, Huber was supposedly appointed by former AG Jeff Sessions to investigate the Obama FBI’s fake investigation of the Clinton email scandal way back in late 2017. He has to date produced nothing because that’s really what Sessions appointed him to do.

Now do you understand why President Trump detests Mr. Sessions, and supports his opponent in the upcoming runoff election, Tommy Tubberville? It really isn’t complicated.

Reminder: None of this rioting ever really was about George Floyd. – Rioters in Boston last night defaced a monument called “Glory.” The monument depicts heroic Union solders during the U.S. Civil War.

The solders all have one thing in common: They’re Black. They’re the members of the 54th Regiment who became the first Black soldiers to fight in the Civil War.

You could never make this stuff up.

Hydroxychloroquine Hypocrisy: Kayleigh McEnany Exposes Fredo Cuomo

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

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany is so adept at dealing with the corrupt press corps that I’m almost glad she’s started holding occasional press briefings again. Almost.

It seems that every time she holds one of these things she exposes the members of the press for being the rank hypocrites we all know them to be. Yesterday, she figuratively ripped the pants right off of CNN’s doofus evening host Fredo Cuomo because … wait for it … he used a more dangerous form of hydroxychloroquine than President Trump has been using.

In treatment for his own alleged case of Wuhan Virus, it turns out that Fredo actually took quinine, which, as McEnany devastatingly revealed at yesterday’s presser, was taken off the market by the FDA in 2006 due to its severe side effects.

Here’s a clip of Kayleigh addressing the HCQ question and Fredo:

Here is an excerpt from McEnany’s remarks:

And one thing I want to note with regard to hydroxychloroquine, because I think it’s very important that we’re as accurate as we can be with our reporting on this: Hydroxychloroquine has been a drug that has been in use for 65 years for lupus, arthritis, and malaria.  It has a very good safety profile.

But as with any drug and as with any prescription, it should be given by a doctor to a patient in that context.  So no one should be taking this without a prescription from their doctor.

But that being said, I’ve seen a lot of apoplectic coverage of hydroxychloroquine.  You had Jimmy Kimmel saying the President is, quote, “trying to kill himself by taking it.”  You had Joe Scarborough saying, quote, “This will kill you.”  Neil Cavuto saying, “What have you got to lose?  One thing you have to lose are lives.”  And you had Chris Cuomo saying, “The President knows that hydroxychloroquine is not supported by science.  He knows it has been flagged by his own people and he’s using it.”

Well, Cuomo mocked the President for this.  And interestingly, I found this out just before coming here: Hydroxychloroquine, of course, is an FDA-approved medication with a long-proven track record for safety.  And it turns out that Chris Cuomo took a less safe version of it called quinine, which the FDA removed from the market in 2006 because of its serious side effects, including death.  So, really interesting to have that criticism of the President.

And on that note to Chris Cuomo, I’d like to redirect him to his brother, the Governor of New York, Governor Cuomo, who has several on-the-record statements about hydroxychloroquine, saying, “I’m an optimist.  I’m hopeful about the drug, and that’s why we’ll try it here in New York as soon as we get it.  There has been anecdotal evidence that it’s promising.  That’s why we’re going ahead.”  And I have about eight other quotes from Governor Cuomo should any of you have interest in that.

[End]

No one in the corrupt press corps was interested, of course. These are the most incurious people on earth. Your average Waffle House pancake possesses a keener sense of curiosity than the average reporter for the Washington Post.

Just in case you were beginning to think that anyone in the corrupt fake news media really holds any genuine concerns about HCQ, know that not a single one of the blue-check media hypocrites on Twitter tweeted a word of condemnation of Cuomo over his rank hypocrisy. As is always the case with corrupt reporters and the President, this is all about Trump and trying to “get” him. If Trump recommends something, or is taking some drug, it must be bad – that’s what the approved Democrat/media narrative dictates.

Yes, as both the President and McEnany have pointed out, HCQ can have severe side effects with certain patients, and should be taken only on the advice of a physician. That makes HCQ exactly like every other drug on the market today.

And guess what? When Remdesivir, which has been approved for emergency use by the FDA before going through full clinical trials, has been fully studied, it will have its own long list of side effects, as will any other hugely-expensive new drug developed by Big Pharma in response to the virus.

They all will soon be featured in those touchy-feely 90-second TV ads that feature soft music and 75 seconds of legal disclaimers. The guy who narrates those disclaimers will talk about all sorts of potential side effects, including death, as some chubby woman conducts a marching band or an elderly couple does yoga or looks peacefully out over a lake in the background to make you feel good and not listen to all the harm this drug might cause you if you take it.

All drugs have potential side effects, and HCQ is no different. The only two differences between HCQ and the drugs Big Pharma is developing and planning to make billions on are: 1) The side effects of HCQ are well-known and have been for decades, and 2) President Trump recommends HCQ.

That’s it, and that’s what Kayleigh McEnany revealed yesterday.

Latest Democrat/Media Narrative: The White House is Hogging all the Tests

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

Here’s the most absurd question from President Trump’s press conference during which he bragged about all the testing we can now do, and further bragged that we will be able to do even more going forward. Which of course was a waste of time that fell on deaf ears in the corrupt, low IQ White House press corps.

I have no idea who this apparent 12 year-old “reporter” is, but she is utterly typical of the corrupt news media in America today. Watch as the President makes this very silly person look even sillier:

Transcript:

Child Reporter: There does seem to be a double standard here, Mr. President, where members of your own staff can get tests frequently when they need it, but ordinary Americans cannot. So, when will the rest of America have the same access that members of your own staff have?

Trump: Yeah, and you know what? If we didn’t get the tests, if we did no tests in the White House, you’d be up complaining, ‘why aren’t you getting tests for the White House?’ See, we can’t win, because if we didn’t get the tests you’d be up – I understand you very well, better than you understand yourself – and frankly, if we didn’t get tests, then you’d be up complaining about the fact that we didn’t have the tests. So, now that we’re doing so well on tests, so quick and so fast, 5 minutes, etc., and so accurate, you’re complaining that we’re getting too many tests. So, we can’t win.

[End]

That is the perfect response, and he’s 100% correct. For the past six weeks, since the fake “we need thousands more ventilators” hoax was resolved by the revelation of video of a New Jersey warehouse filled with thousands of ventilators still wrapped in their original boxes that New York City didn’t need after all, the media/Democrat hoax narrative has been to pound on a mythical shortage of “testing,” even though pretty much no one in the Democrat Party or the corrupt news media even knows how all those millions of tests would be used, or what useful information they would provide.

In fact, the entire motivation around the ‘MOOOOOOOORE TESTINNNNNNNGGGGG!!!!!” narrative was literally to produce the rapid increase in the number of diagnosed cases we have seen in recent weeks, so that the corrupt media could produce stories claiming that Republican governors were opening up their states despite the data indicating a – you guessed it – ‘sudden rise in infections.’

So, now our country has spent billions on producing millions more test kits, and this child reporter wants to shift the narrative how all those ugly, heartless Republicans in the White House are hogging all the tests! Obviously, the President had been prepared for that very question and knocked the answer out of the park.

But he’s right: He and his staff cannot win with the corrupt news media, which is always going to shift over to the next hoax narrative at the behest of their Democrat masters whenever any perceived “problem” has been resolved.

This nitwit reporter obviously wants America to be in a situation now in which every hypochondriac in the country can just run down to the nearest testing center anytime he or she has a headache or a cough. Even the scaremonger Dr. Fauci has been adamant that people should only be tested if they are showing clear symptoms that are typical for this specific virus.

It should be patently obvious to any person with functioning synapses in their noggins that the White House is a special situation. The country must have a functioning executive branch of the federal government, and that branch is going to cease functioning if both the President and Vice President are holed up in their bedrooms for weeks at a time.

Any legitimate news organization would take this child reporter and designate her for zoo and mall opening duty after asking such a putridly idiotic question at a presidential press conference. But given the ethically-devoid state of our current corrupt media establishment, she’ll probably get a raise for dutifully parroting the latest talking points memo from the DNC.

That is who these people are, and it is what they do.

That is all.

Kayleigh McEnany Knows She’s at War With a Bitter Enemy: The Press

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

This is how she should answer every snide question she gets from these corrupt clowns. – It turns out that new White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany is really good at this. Really, really good. Watch as she ends yesterday’s press briefing by completely turning a loaded question around on Jeff Mason of Reuters:

For the record, I still don’t like the Trump White House doing these press briefings. They are counterproductive in all respects, including giving these preening peacocks the TV face time they so desperately crave. The vast majority of the questions that are asked during these engagements are not sincere efforts to acquire information to use in real news reporting, but gotcha-type questions like this one designed to embarrass or to create fake news that would not otherwise exist, and which has no informative value for the public.

But, if the White House has decided to revive these briefings now after a long hiatus for whatever strategic reason, it’s good to have a spokesperson like McEnany, who comes into the sessions incredibly well-prepared and has years of experience in dealing with these people and others like them on TV and radio. Note that she didn’t have even a second’s hesitation in going to the exact page of prepared talking points in her notebook and immediately turning this loaded question designed to embarrass her back onto the reporter and the press at large.

This is a tactic that should be used at every opportunity by this White House. The entirety of the corrupt news media has been at open war with the Trump presidency since before it even began, and there is no reason at all for McEnany to pull any punches. Past GOP White Houses have always tried to play nice with the reprobates in the White House press corps in the hopes that doing so would buy them a bit of positive news coverage here and there. Occasionally that tactic even worked, although it was generally a fool’s errand.

But this White House has no hope of ever being able to cajole any positive coverage from these corrupt news outlets, and President Trump understands that. There is no longer even the slightest pretense of objectivity in any of the national media outlets. There is no good faith at play here.

Thus, if you’re going to insist on holding these briefings, they should be treated as purely hostile engagements. There is simply no possible advantage to doing otherwise. Each and every question that does not come from OAN or John Roberts at Fox News should be treated as a hostile question, and even Roberts’ questions should be treated with a great deal of skepticism.

More than anything else, these engagements should also be treated and prepared for as opportunities to expose the media’s own hypocrisy. That’s what McEnany did with the question in this clip, and she has done it repeatedly throughout the two briefings she has held over the past week.

Many communications professionals would advise her against this tactic on the reasoning that doing so will only heighten resentments and hostility in the room, but that’s simply dumb reasoning. As I have been writing here since January 2017, it is blatantly obvious that the media’s resentments and hostility towards the President or anyone serving as his spokesperson simply cannot rise any higher than they already are. As a group, these people are nothing more or less than activist agents of the opposition political party, and they cherish that role.

Every White House has an obligation to keep the public informed about its activities. That is a given, and every administration must figure out the most effective way to achieve that objective.

The White House press briefing was enshrined as a daily activity during the Gerald Ford administration because that White House decided that would be a politically advantageous thing to do. Ford’s presidency lasted 2 years and 5 months. So, was it really a good strategy? Probably not.

The point here is this: There are a hundred different ways for the Trump White House to communicate with the public. Giving vain jerks like Jeff Mason TV time to ask loaded questions is probably not the most productive means of doing it.

But if you’re going to do it, at least have a spokesperson who is sharp, witty and incredibly well-prepared. Kayleigh McEnany appears so far to fit that description.

That is all.

The Real Reason Why Pelosi Won’t Call the House Back Into Session

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

You understand why San Fran Nan won’t call the House back in session, right? It’s because she and Chuck Schumer are trying to shame Mitch McConnell into keeping the Senate shut down.

Why? Well, it’s obvious: They want to keep the Senate shut down in order to prevent the confirmation of President Trump’s judicial nominees and other key nominees like John Ratcliffe, who is up to become the Director of National Intelligence.

Luckily, McConnell is having none of it, and called the Senate back into session this week with his main goal to specifically get those nominees moving again. He understands that it is crucial for the nation to get back to some semblance of normalcy as soon as possible in order to avoid a massive economic depression, and that America won’t get back to some semblance of normalcy if its elected leaders are all holed up in their basements like Joe Biden and Chris Cuomo.

But Democrats are different – make no mistake about it. They don’t care about people dying or 30 million Americans having been put out of jobs; all they care about is politics. After all, the Wuhan Virus is killing mainly old people, and old people happen to be mostly Republican voters. Democrats like Pelosi and Schumer see this and their only thought is that man, this could really tilt a few congressional races in November if enough old people die in the right districts.

Those 30 million additional unemployed? To your typical Democrat politician, their only thought is that that is one huge target-rich environment of potential Democrat voters. If they can just keep enough of those 30 million on unemployment until November it could be an electoral gold mine.

Am I being overly cynical here, unfair to your Democrat “friends”? Not really. Take a look at this great graphic I found on Twitter the other day:

Image may contain: 7 people, possible text that says 'ABORTION THE DEMOCRATIC RESPONSE το EMERGENCY 1.) CLOSE CHURCHES AND GUN STORES 2.) KEEP MURDERING BABIES CLINICS. 3.) RELEASE FELONS. 4.) LOCK UP CITIZENS. 5.) SUBSIDIZE ILLEGAL ALIENS. 6.) BAN POTENTIALLY LIFE SAVING DRUGS. 7.) FUND THE KENNEDY CENTER. 8.) BUY PPE FROM CHINA. 9.) GIVE THEMSELVES A RAISE. 10.) BLOCK RELIEF FUNDS FOR SMALL BUSINESS. 11.) GO ON VACATION. 12.) INVESTIGATE TRUMP AGAIN. imgflip.co'

Now, the saddest part of this list is that each and every element of it is 100% true. Go ahead – try to convince me otherwise.

What’s more, the list is far from comprehensive. Here are some other items you could add to it:

13. Tried to give more money to Planned Parenthood.

14. Tried to insert language mandating “ballot harvesting”, i.e., voter fraud, into two stimulus bills.

15. Outlawed the use of motor boats to appease climate change alarmists.

16. Shut down beaches despite the knowledge that heat and sunlight kill the virus.

17. Shut down public parks and then went for walks in them.

18. Shut down “unnecessary” travel and then flew the governor of Illinois’ family to a posh resort in Florida.

19. Threatened to arrest people for “crimes” they have made up out of whole cloth.

The list could go on and on: The point is that, while President Trump and his task force have been working 100 hours a week for the last 3 months trying to save lives and deal with this pandemic, the Democrats have been working 100 hours a week doing little but trying to find ways to take political advantage of this tragic situation and extend it out for as long as possible. This is who they are; it is what they do.

We’ve noted this many times, but it deserves noting again: They are only able function in this despicable mode because of the fact that they literally own the nation’s news media. It’s why Pelosi had zero concerns about needlessly delaying two different stimulus bills while millions suffered: Because there was no political price to be paid for doing so.

Hell, people who get all their news from CNN, MSNBC, ABC and CBS didn’t even know she was doing it. With no one in the media working to hold them accountable, Democrat politicians no longer have a social filter. What’s more, they know their core voters have been so brainwashed by these corrupt media outlets that there is nothing they can do, no act so repugnant, to make them vote for anyone else.

You don’t have to believe me – just take a look at this tweet from Harvey Weinstein’s attack dog Democrat lawyer Lisa Bloom:

This is Democrat core voters in a nutshell: They know Biden abused, harassed and raped Tara Reade, but they don’t care. If Biden’s the nominee, they’re voting for him anyway. Because Trump. And maybe science or something.

This is who they are; it is what they do. To them, everything in life is a political calculation. Once you accept that about your Democrat “friends,” everything they say and do makes perfect sense.

That is all.

SHOCK: Morning Mika Just Destroyed Joe Biden’s Campaign

I’m not kidding, folks. Watch the 2-minute clip below and tell me how Biden overcomes this. [Transcript follows]:

 

Transcript:

Mika: Why not approve a search of her name in those [Univ. of Delaware] records?

Biden: [3 second silence] Approve a search of her name.

Mika: Yes, and anything that might be related to Tara Reade in the University of Delaware records.

Biden: [2 second silence] There IS nothing. They wouldn’t, they, they’re not there. And if they ha, if, if its th, I, I, I, o, uh, you know, I don’t understand what y-, the point you’re trying to make.

Mika: The point I’m trying to make is…

Biden: There are no personal records by definition…

Mika: …you are…the point I’m trying to make is that you are approving and actually calling for a search at the National Archives records of everything pertaining to Tara Reade. [speaking sloooowwwwly now] I’m asking why not do the same in the University of Delaware records, which have raised questions [Biden shuts his eyes tightly now] because they were supposed to be revealed to the public and then they were sealed for a longer period of time. Why not do it for both sets of records?

Biden: Because th-, the material [rapid eye-blinking now] in th-the d, University of Delaware has no personnel files and it has, but it does have a lot of confidential conversations that I had with the President about a particular issue, that I had with the heads of state of other places…that that would not be something that would be revealed while I was in public office or while I was seeking public office. It just stands to reason…the best of my knowledge, no one else has done that either. [looks like he’s begging for sympathy at this point]

Mika: [Trying make it clear once again] I’m just talking about her name, not anybody else in those records, a search for that.

Biden: [5 seconds of silence]

Mika: [Tries yet again] Nothing’s classified, not with a president or anybody else. [Very sloooowly one more time] I’m just talking about a search for Tara Reade’s name, in the University of Delaware records.

Biden: [3 more seconds of silence, and rapid eye-blinking] Look, I’m, uh, I mean, who-who-who, you know, does that search? [Goes silent again]

Mika: [clearly frustrated that her efforts to do this idiot a favor are failing] The University of Delaware, uhhhh, perhaps you set up a commission that can do it? I don’t know, whatever is the fairest way to create the most transparency.

Biden: [groans] Well, this is… look. Mika. She says she filed a report. She has her employment records still. She said she filed a report with the only…

[End]

Wow.

To be clear, I had assumed this would be your classic effort by the fake news media to perform what the political pros refer to as an “inoculation interview.” That’s the process in which a candidate facing a tough issue sits down with a carefully-chosen corrupt interviewer like Mika to do a carefully-constructed interview in which the questions were all vetted in advance. The candidate provides carefully-worded answers drafted by staffers to those pre-approved questions, and the interview ends. The rest of the corrupt news media outlets then take the position that the questions have been “asked and answered,” and refuses to address them going forward on the ground that they are now “old news.”

In watching the interview, I still believe that was the plan going in, and things appeared to be going fairly smoothly until Biden chose to dissemble in answer to this particular, very simple question. I feel sure that Morning Mika fully expected Biden to answer with, “Sure, we can do that if you want to, but I already know that there’s no personnel records there – they’re all in the National Archives.” Something like that, anyway.

But he didn’t do that, and it obviously caught Mika off-guard.

It is also quite obvious that, midway through the interview, as Biden became increasingly incoherent, Mika suddenly realize that, oops, all those people who have been saying this guy is not right in the head are – gasp! – right. You can see it in her face and in the way she spends two solid minutes attempting to baby him through what is a very softball question with an easy answer, treating him at several points in the same way one would treat a 3 year-old toddler.

Thus, what was no doubt intended to be an inoculation interview suddenly turned into a potential death knell for a presidential campaign. These two minutes of video will now be used repeatedly, over and over and over again, by the Trump campaign and supporting Super PACs to flood the airwaves with ads that will devastate Biden if he ends up being the nominee.

Somewhere, Hillary Clinton is drafting the acceptance speech she will give after the big money Democrat donors convince Biden to hang it up in a month or so, and the DNC hands her its nomination for one final swing at the presidency.

Biden won’t be the nominee. Not after this.

That is all.

No More Daily Wuhan Virus Task Force Briefings – Will America Survive?

The Mid-Day Campaign Update

UPDATE: Naturally, about an hour after I posted this piece, the White House reversed itself and called a Task Force briefing to begin at 5:00 ET. Mark Steyn, guest-hosting the Rush Limbaugh show, seems to think the President is going to simply make a speech. We will see.

Somehow, I think we’ll all be ok. – The White House announced this morning that, for the 3rd straight day, there will be no special press briefing by the Coronavirus Task Force this evening. The corrupt members of the White House press corps, all but a few of whom function as agents for the Democrat Party, have now gone into outright panic over seeing their daily opportunity to grandstand for the TV cameras while arguing with and interrupting the President of the United States suddenly evaporate.

That, of course, was always the major flaw with the format of these briefings. Once you give this collection of sociopaths, hacks and general reprobates a shot at being on camera, they will always, without exception, abuse that opportunity as a means for self-promotion. That reality, combined with President Trump’s inability to avoid speculating and getting into interminable exchanges with corrupt reporters like Jonathan Karl, Jim Acosta, Yamiche Alcindor and Paula Reid, ultimately robbed these briefings of any real informational value.

The capper came following last Thursday’s briefing, during which Bill Bryan, Under Secretary for Science and Technology at DHS, detailed the results of a study that demonstrates that heat and sunlight help to kill the Wuhan Virus. Instead of focusing on this very positive news and asking questions designed to obtain as much information about the study as possible, the corrupt reporters instead focused other subjects and then spent the next 3 days promoting the false narrative that the President had advised the public to drink Clorox and inject Lysol.

So, you combine an undisciplined President with an utterly corrupt press corps, and this is the inevitable outcome. Which is too bad since, during their first 2-3 weeks, these daily press briefings had actually consistently delivered very useful information to anyone who watched them live. But even that benefit had long since passed, as the briefings ultimately became platforms for the President and Vice President to repeat the same statistics and advisories over and over again.

Presumably the President will return to his habit of engaging the corrupt reporters during meetings in the White House or as he leaves to travel aboard Marine 1. Today, for example, he has invited the press to be present when he holds a meeting with various major business leaders.

This format is vastly preferable for one overarching reason: The reporters never get their faces shown on TV. This mutes their ability to engage in shameless self-promotion and renders them far easier to control. It also makes it much easier for the President and others to ignore irrelevant questions.

Again, this is all too bad, but it is what it is. It’s as much President Trump’s fault as it is the fault of the press, but the reality is that if we had anything resembling an ethical press corps none of this would have become a problem.

At the end of the day, the country will somehow survive without its daily dose of Yameche Alcindor or Jon Karl.

Why Bill de Blasio is a National Menace

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

Man, nobody could’ve seen this one coming. – Actually, anyone who didn’t see this one coming should be as embarrassed as Marxist New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is this morning. On April 18, the Campaign Update discussed the nifty new snitch line de Blasio had set up for his loyal comrades there in the Five Burroughs, which allowed people to text a photo of any dangerous non-compliant subversives who stood within 6 feed of a head of cabbage to “enforcement” personnel.

Well, anyone who has spent any time at all in New York City instantly understood how that city’s residents would likely respond to de Blasio’s Stalinist setup. From a piece at the New York Post:

Mayor Bill de Blasio’s critics let him know how they really felt about him ordering New Yorkers to snitch on each other for violating social-distancing rules — by flooding his new tip line with crank complaints including “dick pics” and people flipping the bird, The Post has learned.

Photos of extended middle fingers, the mayor dropping the Staten Island groundhog and news coverage of him going to the gym have all been texted to a special tip line that de Blasio announced Saturday, according to screenshots posted on Twitter.

One user sent the message “We will fight this tyrannical overreach!” to the service and got an automated message that in part said, “Hello, and thank you for texting NYC311.”

“F–k you!” replied @MorganLSchmidt1, along with a meme showing Adolf Hitler and the words “TO THOSE TURNING IN YOUR NEIGHBORS AND LOCAL BUSINESSES — YOU DID THE REICH THING.”

“Start flooding their reporting text numbers with this pics!” the tweet added.

[End]

What’s most amazing is that de Blasio himself has lived his entire life in the city, and apparently had no clue that this would be the result. The Post reports that the initial response was so overwhelming that “enforcement” officials had to temporarily shut down the line and initiate a new pre-vetting process before the messages are relayed to “enforcement” precincts.

This clown wanted to be president? Really??? – Further demonstrating exactly how little this gigantic Marxist moron understands about the teeming masses that have surrounded him throughout his entire life, de Blasio on Monday expressed shock at the news that many of the 1,500 prisoners he recently released by decree from New York City jails have gone on to … wait for it … COMMIT MORE CRIMES! Because, after all, they are criminals!

The Post, which has a field day with this raging nitwit Mayor pretty much every day of the week, again reports that at least 50 of these convicts have gone on to commit additional crimes in the days since their release, and many of them have simply been released back into society yet again so they can go commit more crimes. I swear I do not make this stuff up:

It is “unconscionable” that Rikers Island inmates who were released due to coronavirus concerns are committing new crimes, Mayor Bill de Blasio said Monday.

“I think it’s unconscionable just on a human level that folks were shown mercy and this is what some of them have done,” the mayor said during his morning briefing Monday, which came on the heels of a Post report outlining the issue.

De Blasio said the number of re-offenders remains relatively small and that the city was “buckling down” on monitoring and supervising released prisoners.

“We do see some recidivism. I have not seen a huge amount, but any amount is obviously troubling,” he said.

“We’re going to just keep buckling down on it, making sure there’s close monitoring and supervision to the maximum step possible. And the NYPD is going to keep doing what they’re doing.”

[End]

Let’s all also take this moment to remember that, as late as March 13 – 6 full weeks after the President had banned all travel into the U.S. from China, and weeks after he had expanded that order to include other countries and begun taking other mitigation measures to fight this virus – this monstrous jackass was urging the people of his city to just go about living their normal lives. To this day, he still has not shut down the city’s subways, which are just petri dishes for spreading this virus, or the city’s buses.

Madness.

Is it any wonder, then, that New York City has been the literal epicenter of this viral plague in the U.S.?

And by the way, let’s not let New York Governor Andrew Cuomo off the hook. Cuomo has been slathered with praise by a lapdog press for his performance during this crisis, but he is also massively complicit, since he could have at any time stepped in to overrule de Blasio’s many acts of rank stupidity. But the truth is that, while he does conduct a good press conference, Cuomo is as rotten and clueless as de Blasio.

One columnist – I’ve lost the link now and forgotten who it was [It was Dennis Prager at PJMedia] – asked a fantastic question the other day: If this viral plague was centered in the states of, say, Montana and Wyoming rather than in the corrupt news media centers of New York and New Jersey, would we be responding to it in the way we have been?

Think about it: The vast majority of the talking heads you see on your TV screens faking the “news” every day live in and around New York City. Many of them commute to work from their homes in New Jersey. Don’t you think their coverage of this virus, and their early efforts to foment a national panic over it were colored by the fact that the void of competent leadership had helped make their home states the place where over half of America’s cases had sprung up?

By the same token, can anyone truly believe that Cuomo and de Blasio would have shut New York City down if this outbreak had been centered in, say, Alabama and Mississippi? Or any other two adjacent states you can think of? Of course they wouldn’t, and they shouldn’t. More to the point, no one in the corrupt news media would have been trying to panic them into doing so.

So, when you see de Blasio acting the buffoon on national television every day, realize he is not just some harmless circus clown. He is in fact a national menace whose utter inability to lead in a crisis has exacerbated this situation for all of us.

That is all.

Watch the Corrupt Reporters Turn on Dr. Fauci in Real Time

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

The immutable truth about today’s corrupt news media is that it operates on a narrative coordinated with the Democrat Party. Reporters are not the legendary – probably imaginary – intrepid souls of black and white noir films from the 1930s and 1940s, dogged pursuers of the truth in their role as the people’s watchdog over those in power. What we call “reporters” today are actually narrative engineers, individuals corrupted by those in power who are given an overarching, politically-motivated narrative by their editors and the people who control their editors, and who go out every day to look only for information that can be used to support that preconceived narrative.

We see this played out in real time every day on our TV screens in the question and answer sessions that take place during the White House Coronavirus Task Force updates. The reporters in the room, with a few exceptions, are not there to actually gather information about the Wuhan Virus that might be useful in the lives of their readers and viewers; they are there to argue with the President, the Vice President and the medical experts in a way that they hope will elicit responses that fit the day’s narrative.

Thanks to his stupid statements made over the week on CNN and MSNBC, yesterday’s narrative coming into the update was all about Dr. Anthony Fauci. Fauci, in his boundless search for media attention, had decided it would be a great idea this past weekend to do interviews with execrable hacks like CNN’s Jake Tapper and MSNBC’s Al Sharpton. During those interviews, he agreed with leading questions from both hacks whose premise was that lives could have been saved if only the evil Orange Man in the White House would have acted sooner.

Which is, logically, unarguable. Hell, if only the President had ESP and had shut down the most prosperous economy the world has ever seen in, let’s say, 2017 in anticipation of this virus, then all those people who the virus has killed might be alive today. Or maybe half of them would have died by suicide or deprivation after losing their jobs, homes and ability to purchase food. Or maybe they and millions of others would have all died because we would be living the real-life version of Mad Max and/or the Hunger Games right now had that taken place in 2017. Who knows?

But the narrative was set, and all Fauci had to do was to stay silent while the narrative engineers pounded on the President in order to keep it going. But, to his credit, the overly-loquacious Doctor chose not to do that. Instead, he made a point of attempting to clarify those weekend remarks in a way that not only killed the “Trump acted too late” narrative, but also decimated the corrupt media’s “Trump never listens to the experts” narrative that they have repeatedly attempted to mount over the past three months.

In the clip below you will see Fauci state categorically that President Trump not only listens to the advice of the “experts,” but has responded to each and every one of their recommendations. Watch:

 

Transcript:

Fauci: I had an interview yesterday that I was asked a hypothetical question, and hypothetical questions can sometime get you into some difficulty because it’s what would have, or could have. The nature of the hypothetical question was, if in fact we had mitigated earlier, could lives have been saved?

And the answer to my question was, as I always do, and I’m doing right now, perfectly honestly say ‘yes.’ Obviously, mitigation helps. I have been up here many times telling you that mitigation works. So, if mitigation works, and you instigate it and initiate it earlier, you will probably have saved more lives. If you initiated it later, you probably would have lost more lives. You initiate it at a certain time.

That was taken as a way that maybe something somehow was at fault here. So, let me tell you from my experience, and I can only speak from my own experience, is that we had been talking before any meetings that we had about the pros and the cons, the effectiveness or the not, of strong mitigations. So the discussions were going on, mostly among the medical people, about what that would mean.

The first and only time that Dr. Birx and I went in and made a formal recommendation to the President to actually have a “shutdown,” in the sense of not really a shutdown but to really have strong mitigation, we discussed it. Obviously there would be concern by some that in fact that might have some negative consequences. Nonetheless, the President listened to the recommendation and went to the mitigation. 

The next, second time, that I went with Dr. Birx into the President and said, 15 days are not enough: We need to go 30 days, obviously there were people who had a problem with that because of the potential secondary effects. Nonetheless, at that time, the President went with the health recommendations, and we extended it another 30 days. 

So, I can only tell you what I know, and what my recommendations were. But clearly, as happens all the time, there were interpretations to that response to a hypothetical question that I just thought would be very nice for me to clarify because I didn’t have a chance to clarify. Thank you.

[He thinks he’s done here: Boy, was he in for a rude awakening. He had just decimated not one, but two narratives almost all of those reporters had carried into that room with them, and they were not going to let him get away so easily.]

Reporter: [As Fauci tries to leave the podium] Do you remember the date?

Fauci: No, I, to be honest with you, I don’t even know what the date was. But I can just tell you that the first and only time that we went in and said that we need to do mitigations strongly, the response was ‘yes, we’ll do it.’

Reporter: What did he do? Did he lift the travel restrictions?

Fauci: No, the travel restriction is separate. That was whether or not we want to go into a mitigation stage, of 15 days of mitigation. The travel was another recommendation, when we went in and said we probably should be doing that, and the answer was ‘yes.’ And then another time was we should do it with Europe, and the answer was ‘yes.’ And the next time, we should do it with the UK, and the answer was ‘yes.’

Reporter: In this interview, you said there was pushback. Where did that pushback come from?

Fauci: No, that was the wrong choice of words. You know what it was? When people discuss, not necessarily in front of the President, when people discuss, they say, ‘well, this is going to have maybe a harmful effect on this, or that. So, it was a poor choice of words. There wasn’t anybody saying ‘no, you shouldn’t do that.

Reporter: [Now clearly angry that the guy has destroyed her directed narratives, which might force her to actually engage in independent thought processes she hasn’t used in years.] Are you doing this voluntarily, or did the President advise you…

Fauci: No, I’m doing it….everything I do is voluntarily. Please. Don’t even imply that.

[End]

Wow, that look on Fauci’s face at the end for the hack reporter just reeks of contempt and disgust. It was his best public moment during this entire three-month process.

Now, I’m trying hard to be charitable this morning, and the most charitable thing that can be said for Dr. Fauci is that he is an attention hog who does too many media appearances for his own good. Making matters worse, he obviously doesn’t understand the nature of today’s corrupt corporate news media operations, and stupidly thinks people like Al Sharpton, Jake Tapper and the hack reporter from CBS [Paula Reid, whose husband lobbies congress for Chinese interests] who was peppering him with slanted questions in that clip are his friends and have his best interests at heart.

Let’s go with that charitable assessment of Fauci, and let’s further say that his naivete’ about the nature of the media leads him to believe that if he just answers their questions as honestly as he can that all will be sweetness and light with his world.

If that bit of charity is indeed an accurate description of Fauci and his mindset, then the best thing anyone can do for him would be to counsel him to keep his mug off of the nation’s TV screens, except for these daily Task Force updates. Because what he has been doing for the past three months, repeatedly creating these media-generated dust-ups that undermine the efforts of the Task Force, has been incredibly counterproductive, not just for him and the President, but for the entire country.

Enough.

That is all.

The Fauci Agenda Supports the Latest Media Smear of President Trump

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

Well, this was inevitable, wasn’t it? – As the Wuhan Virus outbreak pretty clearly hit the top of the curve and began to turn over late in the week, the corrupt hacks at CNN led the media/Democrat effort to now begin revising history. That requires a new narrative, and the new narrative, kicked off on Jake Tapper’s Sunday show, is that “lives could have been saved had the evil Trump just acted sooner.”

Making things easier for Tapper and other corrupt Democrat media toadies to concoct the new narrative is Dr. Anthony Fauci, who is more than willing to cooperate in a smear effort in order to cover his own behind. Unfortunately for Fauci, as you will see in the dueling clips below, his remarks to Tapper on Sunday directly contradict the advice he was giving both the President and the public as late as February 29, a full month after President Trump took the major step of banning non-essential travel into the U.S. from China and other countries:

Fauci on Feb. 29:Right now, at this moment, there is no need to change anything you’re doing on a day-by-day basis. Right now the risk is still low. But this could change. I’ve said that many times even on this program. You’ve got to watch out, because although the risk is low now, you don’t need to change anything you’re doing. When you start to see community spread, this could change.”

The big controversy this morning is that President Trump, in one of his periodic re-tweeting frenzies, re-tweeted a message that ended with this hashtag: “#FireFauci”:

Of course, what the President means by “it’s all on tape” is Fauci’s comments from February 29 and other media appearances that took place long after Trump began to implement major actions to fight the Wuhan Virus. And it isn’t just Fauci who is “on tape”: We have video clips of Nancy Pelosi telling folks in San Francisco’s China Town on Feb. 24 not to worry, to just go out and have a great time. We have clips of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio participating in Chinese New Year celebrations in late February and talking about not cancelling the massive annual St. Patrick’s Day parade as late as March 13. And we wonder why New York City has been the epicenter of the national outbreak?

Here’s de Blasio on March 10:

Here’s Pelosi in February 24:

 

There are myriad other clips of Democrats and Fauci (but I repeat myself) all over Twitter and other social media today urging people to go out and live their lives like nothing was happening weeks after President Trump stood up his White House Coronavirus Task Force and began to take sweeping actions to protect the public. This is not 1918, when Lenin and Stalin could just have their people go into the libraries and change history by burning all the inconvenient books: People who have been paying close attention know what reality is here, and that won’t change. The objective truth is what it is, much as CNN and Jake Tapper would like to ignore it.

Thus, this narrative, like all the previous Democrat/media hoax narratives attacking President Trump, will fail, although the brainwashed people who still get their news from CNN will be able to maintain their perpetual outrage posture against the POTUS.

Does President Trump actually intend to #FireFauci, as the tweet he re-tweeted advocates? No, not much chance of that, although he no doubt weeks ago realized that the Fauci Agenda (a great name for a Robert Ludlum novel, huh?) did not comport with the agenda of the Trump Administration or the American people. Trump loves having a foil, and whether he intends to be or not, Fauci is about to become the foil as the President this week names his Reopening America task force and moves to gradually restart the economy.

If it is wise to “keep your friends close and your enemies closer,” then Fauci is right where the President wants him to be. Experts in a situation such as this should be there to give advice and otherwise let the elected officials do the talking. To her great credit, Dr. Deborah Birx has largely stuck closely to this model. The attention-hog Fauci hasn’t.

Fauci won’t be fired for Sunday’s latest mouth-shooting betrayal of the President, but he is about to find his advice carrying less and less weight in the days and weeks to come as Trump begins to put America back to work.

That is all.

Watch Trump Pants Jim Acosta and his “Happy Talk” Question

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

At yesterday’s Coronavirus Task Force press conference, the execrable CNN hack Jim Acosta accused President Donald Trump and the Task Force experts of engaging in “happy talk” for the American People. Acosta cites unnamed “governors” and “hospital professionals” who complain of shortages of PPE, ventilators and other equipment while on the air at CNN. He of course refuses to name a single name, because he is making most, if not all of it up at this point.

Below is a 6 minute clip of the exchange, followed by a transcript of most of the President’s remarks. As is his habit, Acosta constantly interrupts the President in the midst of his answers, and there is a lot of cross talk during the exchange. I’m not going to waste my time transcribing anything Acosta has to say, because he is not worthy of my time. So, the Transcript will consist only of the President’s remarks, which every American should hear and digest.

First, the clip:

 

 

Transcript:

Well, a lot of it’s fake news. A lot of it’s fake news. Why would you say ‘no’? I think the answer is yes. Who said no to that [the government’s efforts to provide ventilators and PPE]? No, no – you’re saying no, but who said it [Acosta provides no answer]?

You said do we have enough masks? Yes. You said do we have enough tests? Yes. Plus, we’re developing news tests. Do we have enough ventilators? Yes. Do we have enough hospital beds? Yes. We built 20,000 hospital beds.

They say that on your [CNN’s] air because if they don’t say that you’re not going to put them on.

Let me just tell you, the governors, last night, they had a group of governors, 14 governors, they were together someplace, and they said it’s been unbelievable what’s happened. We’ve been totally responsive.

Ventilators – everyone has the ventilators they need, to a point where we’re getting calls from foreign countries, they’re saying ‘you have all the ventilators, can we get some?’ And we’re going to try and help some of these countries.

These people [pointing out the Task Force members] have done an incredible job.

This is not ‘happy talk.’ Maybe it’s happy talk for you, it’s not happy talk for me. We’re talking about death. We’re talking about the greatest economy in the world – one day I have to close it off. And we did the right thing, because maybe it would have been 2 million people died instead of what that final number will be. It could be 60, it could be 70, it could be 75, it could be 55, whatever. Thousands of people have died. There’s nothing ‘happy’ about it, Jim.

This is sad talk. These are the saddest news conferences that I’ve ever had. I don’t like doing them. You know why? Because I’m talking about death. I’m talking about taking the greatest economy ever created, we had the greatest numbers we’ve ever had in almost every aspect of economics. From employment to companies… look at the airlines, they were having the best year. Now, all of a sudden we have to save them.

There’s no ‘happy talk,’ Jim. This is the real deal. 

And I’ve got to make the biggest decision of my life. And I’ve only started thinking about that. I’ve made a lot of big decisions in my life – you understand that. This is by far the biggest decision of my life, because I have to say, ok, let’s go.

[Acosta interrupts with more vague statements by unidentified “hospital administrators]

Sure, but you have many doctors that say ‘unbelievable job.’ I watched this morning, I watched a certain network, and it wasn’t Fox, and you had doctors saying we had done an incredible job. You just read off these ‘no, no, no’; well, we have ventilators, we have equipment, we have beds…

How about beds? Gov. Cuomo just told me a little while ago that he’s got plenty of beds. In fact, he’s having a hard time filling Javits Center. We built them 2,900 beds. So, that’s not a fair question.

[Acosta interrupts with more vague, unidentified accusatsions]

Jim, Jim, Jim, no, excuse me. We have masks, we have everything. And we were trying to get ready for this surge, and a lot of people said it will never happen. Deborah said it: You will never need that many beds. They said we needed 40,000 ventilators. 40 thousand! It’s like building a car – 40,000 ventilators. People said – I felt it, too – you’ll ever need that many.

Guess what? We’re the envy of the world in terms of ventilators. Germany would like some, France would like some – we’re going to help these countries out. Spain needs them desperately; Italy needs them desperately; Mexico needs them desperately. He [Mexican President AMLO] asked me last night would it be possible to get 10,000 ventilators? Within a short period of time I’ll be able to help out Mexico.

No, Jim, just the opposite of your question: It’s not ‘no, no, no,’ it’s ‘yes, yes, yes.’ We’re in great shape.

And you know what? What’s happening now is those numbers, they’re horrible – take a look at the numbers of beds. We have beds available all over New York, New York really being the epicenter. New York has experienced something that has been absolutely horrific.

I saw Hart’s Island yesterday [where Wuhan Virus victims are being buried in mass graves]. I saw those people being buried yesterday. Fortunately, we have the beds, and you can speak to Mayor de Blasio, you can speak to Gov. Cuomo, people can’t even believe the job we’ve done.

And I give tremendous credit to the military. This has been a military operation, with private people. I give tremendous credit to our military, to the Army Corps of Engineers to FEMA, to these people [the Task Force members]. The job they’ve done is incredible. And you shouldn’t be asking…[Acost interrupts yet again] that kind of a quest….

Jim, honestly, you shouldn’t be asking that kind of a question. You should say it’s been really incredible watching what’s happening. [Acosta interrupts] Jim, let me ask you, what governor…we have more tests than anyone in the world, we have virtually every country in the world calling us, asking us ‘how do we get these tests that you have? Your testing is the best in the world, how do we get it?’

They’ve done a fantastic job, and when you ask a question like that, it’s very insulting to a lot of great people.

[End]

Regardless of what you think about the response to the pandemic that has been mounted, and whether or not it was overkill, the reality is that what has been accomplished over the last two months by all the people the President names and credits in this answer has been truly astonishing. Sadly, those who get their “news” from corrupt media outlets like CNN will never understand or appreciate that reality.

On this Easter weekend, that’s worth applauding, even if sleazy, corrupt reporters like Jim Acosta want to classify it all as ‘happy talk.’

That is all.

It’s Easy to Predict The Democrat/Media False Narratives to Come

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

A friend had the following thought last night: “I wonder if we, a nation, will learn anything from this “pandemic”? In time of national crisis, politics and finger pointing should have given way to unity and nationality first.”

The answer to the question in the first sentence is no, collectively, we will not learn any real lessons from this pandemic, mainly because the corrupt news media, working in concert with the Democrat Party, will not allow us to do so.

The response to that second sentence is yes, that should have taken place, but the corrupt news media, working in concert with the Democrat Party, could not allow it.

We all must understand that the Democrat Party simply could no longer exist for any length of time in any situation resembling national unity. The electability of Democrat candidates for office relies completely on the perpetuation of division and controversy, whether real or imagined. Literally every message they send during an election campaign is designed to divide the population up along racial, religious, cultural and economic lines.

This is why Nancy Pelosi’s response to the Wuhan Virus crisis is not to work to help the nation recover and heal, but to launch yet another hoax investigation designed to evolve into an impeachment effort along about the first of September. You can set your clock to it – it’s coming. Without the existence of constant division and crisis, whether real or made up out of whole cloth by human scum like Adam Schiff, the Democrat Party has no political platform.

This is fine for corrupt media operations like the New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN, CBS, ABC and NBC: They thrive on crisis and controversy, and given that about 98% of the people they employ are loyal Democrat activists, they are more than willing and happy to coordinate their efforts with the Democrat Party. These media operations work on a model of driving specific narratives, not on reporting the truth. The overarching theme of that narrative for the past four years has been that Donald Trump is the enemy and must be defeated.

Thus, it did not matter what actions the Trump Administration took to address the Wuhan Virus pandemic: Whatever the President did was to be portrayed as not just wrong, but racist, un-American and insane. This is why the media was filled with stories and panel discussions telling us the Virus was no threat at all during late January and early February, as the Trump Administration was ramping up efforts to prevent the spread. It is why the President was roundly called a thug and a racist when he put the ban on incoming Chinese travel on January 31. It is why today, that media/Democrat narrative has been turned on its head in an effort to revise history and pretend the Administration was “too slow” in addressing the issue.

When anything the President and the entire executive branch of government does is portrayed as wrong and disloyal and racist by 98% of the nation’s news media, how can there possibly be anything approaching “national unity?” It simply is not possible.

This is also why we, as a nation, can never truly learn the lessons we need to learn from this or any other crisis. Regardless of how positive the ultimate outcome of the Administration’s strategic approach to fighting this Virus ends up being, the public will be brainwashed by the nation’s corrupt media establishment to believe every action the evil Trump took was wrong.

To know the truth of this, all you need to do is watch how the press corps behaves at the daily Coronavirus Task Force briefings. With only rare exceptions, the questions being asked by these corrupt reporters are not designed to actually obtain real information to be communicated to the public: They are instead gotcha questions designed get the President to say something controversial in order to create a divisive story that will attract clicks to websites and generate blaring, above-the-fold headlines.

These reporters are not there to report: They are there to divide and to support a narrative that will keep the crisis going for as long as possible.

Thus, the coming effort by the President and his people to re-open the economy will inevitably be portrayed as “dangerous” and “premature” and “life-threatening” by these corrupt media outlets, regardless of what the plan actually happens to be. Do not doubt me on this: The overarching theme of the narrative to come will be that the evil Trump is “trading lives for money.” Those exact words will be repeated thousands of times on the nation’s airwaves in the coming months.

The other narrative that will inevitably be screamed by the media/Democrat propaganda complex will be “Trump wasted billions on building unused ventilators and medical supplies!!!!!!!”

No, really: After spending the last two months wailing that the states just do not have enough ventilators and PPE, these very same people will turn on a dime and try to punish the President and his people for putting the nation on a war-time footing to produce those things in such massive quantities that a huge portion of them will end up sitting in warehouses, waiting for the next public health crisis to come.

This is what these people do. It is who they are. They not only promote division and crisis in our country, they view doing those things as their actual duty. They truly do believe that, which is what makes them so dangerous to our nation’s ultimate survival.

How can there be national unity, how can there be any lessons learned in such an environment?

Image may contain: 9 people, people standing and text

There can’t be. Which is why it will be more important than ever for us all to get out and vote on November 3, even if we have to wear facemasks and gloves to do it.

FDA Approves Hydroxychloroquine: Democrats, Media Hardest Hit *UPDATED*

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

What are the Democrat governors in Nevada and Michigan going to do now? – The Food and Drug Administration issued an emergency use authorization on Sunday, approving hydroxycholoroquine and chloroquine for use in treating the Wuhan Virus, COVID-19, after numerous successful studies and test cases emerged over the past three weeks.

Democrat politicians and corrupt media outlets who are hoping this crisis lasts as long as possible in order to damage President Trump have been despicably down-playing the use of this safe, well-known, inexpensive and plentiful malaria treatment for the past two weeks. Two Democrat hack governors – Steve Sisolak in Nevada and the Soros stooge Gretchen Whitmer in Michigan – are so depraved that they actually issued orders last week to prevent the use of this effective treatment for their own citizens, in what can fairly be described as an active effort to enhance the body count.

UPDATE: GatewayPundit is reporting this morning that the Nevada Chief Medical Officer who recommended the ban to Sisolak doesn’t even have a license to practice medicine. Unreal:

Governor Sisolak’s Chief Medical Officer of Nevada is named Ihsan Azzam and he is the one who advised Gov. Sisolak to make it illegal to prescribe hydroxychloroquine to COVID-19 victims.

Ihsan Azzam oversees public health surveillance, epidemiology and disease control activities in the state of Nevada.

But as reported in the Washington Times in 2018 — Ihsan Azzam does not have a license to practice medicine in the United States and yet he is dictating public health policy in Nevada!

The corrupt Democrat activists at Politico were so upset with the FDA action that the first paragraph of the story they ran on it Sunday night read as follows:

The Food and Drug Administration on Sunday issued an emergency use authorization for hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine, decades-old malaria drugs championed by President Donald Trump for coronavirus treatment despite scant evidence.

The drug hasn’t just been “championed” by President Trump – it has in fact been championed by doctors all over the world. We have now seen multiple successful, peer-reviewed case studies and strong anecdotal evidence in France, in South Korea, in Germany and in Orange County, New York, where Dr. Vladimir Zelenko successfully treated 350 patients with zero deaths. Those are just the examples I’m aware of.

UPDATE: Dr. Zelenko has now  treated 699 COVID-19 patients with 100% success:

Last Wednesday, we published the success story from Dr. Vladimir Zelenko, a board-certified family practitioner in New York, after he successfully treated 350 coronavirus patients with 100 percent success using a cocktail of drugs: hydroxychloroquine, in combination with azithromycin (Z-Pak), an antibiotic to treat secondary infections, and zinc sulfate.  Dr. Zelenko said he saw the symptom of shortness of breath resolved within four to six hours after treatment.

Now, Dr. Zelenko provides updates on the treatment after he successfully treated 699 COVID-19 patients in New York. In an exclusive interview with former New York Mayor, Rudy Giuliani, Dr. Vladmir Zelenko shares the results of his latest study, which showed that out of his 699 patients treated, zero patients died, zero patients intubated, and four hospitalizations.

Dr. Zelenko said the whole treatment costs only $20 over a period of 5 days with 100% success. He defines success as “Not to die.” Dr. Zelenko first posted his Facebook video message last week calling on President Trump to “advise the country that they should be taking this medication.”

[End]

Naturally, the hacks at Politico managed to find an ex-Obama official who slammed the FDA’s move:

“I would like to see who at FDA’s [Medical Countermeasures Initiative] signed off on this EUA despite the total lack of scientific evidence that chloroquine/hydroxychloroquine are beneficial in the treatment of COVID-19,” tweeted Luciana Borio, who served as FDA’s acting chief scientist between 2015 and 2017. “EUA is supposed to be issued when the evidence indicates that benefits outweigh the risks.”

So, let’s review:

  • We are in the middle of a global pandemic;
  • We are fighting a “novel” coronavirus that, up to three weeks ago, had no known cure and no vaccine;
  • We have multiple peer-reviewed scientific studies conducted by renowned scientists from multiple countries, as well as strong anecdotal evidence of this drug’s incredible, near-100% effectiveness in fighting this virus;
  • And, because President Trump has said good things about this drug during his daily press briefings, the entirety of the Democrat/media propaganda complex mounts a demented and coordinated strategy to demonize the one known cure for the virus.

Yes, it’s depraved. Yes, it is demented. Yes, it is despicable, diabolical and disreputable and disgraceful and vile.

But hey, this is Democrat politicians and the corrupt media we’re talking about here. You expected something else?

That is all.

How the New York Times Fakes News About Ventilators

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

Alex Berenson, himself a former reporter at the New York Times, has a great Twitter thread this morning detailing how his former employer is intentionally mis-informing its readers regarding the real number of ventilators that the nations hospitals will need to deal with the China Virus outbreak.

The content of Berenson’s Twitter thread is detailed below. It should be required reading in every home in America.

Thus, rather than the “million” ventilators that the NYTimes falsely claims will be needed based on faulty data, the maximum number is vastly lower than that. And the real problem, which the Times basically ignores, is that our country likely only has trained staff necessary to safely operate a maximum of about 56,000 such machines.

This is the kind of intentional news-fakery aimed solely at causing harm to President Donald Trump that corrupt media outlets have used to cause needless panic across the United States. It is the kind of irresponsble media behavior for which, when all of the dust has settled from this national crisis, our country simply must find some way to hold corrupt reporters, editors and media executives accountable.

Because if we cannot find some way to adequately police what has become possibly the single most corrupt and irresponsible corporate business segment in our society today, they will only behave even more irresponsibly in the future.

That is all.

Biden Bumbles, Stumbles and Mumbles as Trump’s Approval Ratings Soar

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

Trump’s numbers are booming. – Two new polls released on Tuesday show President Donald Trump gaining popularity thanks to his handling of this China Virus crisis. His overall approval ratings reached new highs in both the Gallup Poll (49%) and the latest HarrisX Survey (54%). The Gallup poll now pegs his approval for his handling of the China Virus at a whopping 60%, with just 38% disapproval.

This is very troubling news for the elder abusers attempting to pass Quid Pro Joe Biden off as someone who can handle the job. Very troubling news indeed.

They never should’ve given up on Operation Hide The Geezer. – For a week there, the world was Quid Pro Joe’s oyster. His recent sweeps of state after state after state in his nomination contest with The Commie, combined with government advisories to stay at home and avoid contact with others had provided the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator and his evil staff the perfect excuse to keep their obviously declining candidate under wraps.

The inability to hold more campaign “rallies” is a blessing to Creepy Uncle Joe.  Think of it: No more need to partition off small high school gymnasiums with temporary walls at mid-court because he couldn’t fill them up. No more ability for the handsy candidate to incur embarrassing videos of him inappropriately fondling young girls and other people’s wives.  No more uncontrollable live events where his handlers risk the clearly impaired candidate going off-script and referring to God as “you know, the thing.” No more opportunities for the “tough guy” Biden to curse, insult and challenge auto workers to a fight when they ask him semi-tough questions.

It was without doubt an elder abuser’s dream world. They could have let the Geezer sit in his study for weeks, maybe months, doing nothing but pretending to sign off on press releases and tweets written for him by others and no one in the corrupt news media would have said boo about it. Hell, most of them would have gone on and on about what a statesman he was being, setting such a great example for the rest of the population.

Why, nobody shelters in place like that great American, Joe Biden, by golly!

But it is always the natural tendency of campaign professionals to “do something,” and when they began to see President Donald Trump’s public approval ratings shooting up as the people started taking his daily public briefings seriously, the alarm bells sounded in Bidenland. Even more threatening in the nearer term, they saw New York Governor Andrew Cuomo doing his own daily briefings and receiving increasing praise from the same corrupt media toadies that have been in the tank for Quid Pro Joe. With every passing day, it seemed to them that Cuomo was becoming more and more of a threat to sweep into the July convention in Milwaukee in the role of the “white night” to save the party from nominating an increasingly incapacitated candidate.

Thus it was that after just one week of successfully hiding the Geezer, Biden’s abusive handlers decided they had to roll him out in front of the cameras again. They touted their latest scam as an effort by Quid Pro Joe to hold regular counter-briefings so he can “correct the record” because of all of the evil Trump’s “lies” to the American public. They set up a handy teleprompter and video feed in the study of Biden’s palatial home and handed him an 8-minute script in a gigantic font for the Geezer to hopefully read verbatim.

That approach almost worked semi-well during Biden’s first “counter-briefing,” until the teleprompter malfunctioned, causing Biden to start stammering and gesturing to his staff to get the damn thing scrolling again:

That was Monday’s fiasco. Things only got worse on Tuesday, as the Biden handlers decided to throw all caution to the wind and roll him out there for a series of softball interviews on CNN, ABC and MSNBC.

Appearing with the execrable hack Jake Tapper on CNN, Quid Pro Joe repeatedly coughed into his fist, so many times that Tapper felt the need to give the former Vice President of the United States instructions on the proper way to cough into his elbow, a decades-old technique of which the Geezer was apparently blissfully unaware:

In an interview on MSNBC with despicable Nicolle Wallace, Quid Pro Joe repeatedly got confused and stopped in mid-sentence:

In that same interview, the pathetic fan girl was so anxious to get rid of him that she felt the need to say thank you no fewer than seven times:

The coup de gras came in an appearance on ABC News. There he was asked by Sara Haynes if President Trump is right when he says “we can’t let the cure be worse than the virus itself.”

Biden’s answer: “We have to take care of the cure. That will make the problem worse no matter what.”

I swear I don’t make this stuff up:

Naturally, the liberal activist Haynes had no follow-up question to that gibberish answer.

But the reality for the Biden camp is that they cannot expect to survive the grueling campaign to come via corrupt media bias alone. As this post demonstrates, these clips are viewed by millions of people every day on social media. Try as they might, the evil minions who spend their days censoring conservative thought and speech on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and all the other platforms are simply not capable of hiding them from a curious public.

Don’t get me wrong: They can almost certainly make it to the July convention through media bias and censorship, because the Democrat voter base is really good at refusing to deal with reality. But the general election campaign is an entirely different animal, one that cannot be rigged by the DNC. And the reality of the Unfrozen Caveman Senator is that he is clearly and unambiguously not competent to hold the office of the presidency.

Biden’s abusive handlers and family would do well to reconsider this latest failing strategy, and re-implement Operation Hide the Geezer. Hide him all the way to July if you can, and then hope for a miracle in the fall.

That’s not an especially good strategy, but when you’re actively trying to force an impaired candidate into the White House, it’s the best one available.

That is all.
