Saturday News Roundup: Lou Dobbs Cancelled, but the DC Police State Lives On

If Fox News was already dead to you, it is probably even deader to you this morning. – Lou Dobbs, the pugnacious anchor and loyal Trump guy on Fox Business, saw his show cancelled yesterday in the wake of being named as a defendant in a $2.7 billion lawsuit against the network by Smartmatic.

Dobbs has been a fixture on Fox Business for a decade, and has remained a rare bright spot on the network as most of its other programming has veered to the left, causing a collapse in the “news” operation’s ratings in recent months.

From a story at NewsMax:

Fox News has canceled ”Lou Dobbs Tonight,” the program hosted by one of the media’s most steadfast supporters of Donald Trump and the former president’s claims of voter fraud, the Los Angeles Times reported Friday. 

Dobbs’ program, which has been airing twice nightly at 5 and 7 p.m. ET on the Fox Business Network, will be replaced next week with ”Fox Business Tonight,” with rotating substitute hosts Jackie DeAngelis and David Asman, who filled in for Dobbs on Friday. This, according to a Fox rep who confirmed the news to the Times.

Dobbs, 75, remains under contract at Fox News, the newspaper said, but his future on the conservative news network is murky.

The cancellation comes a day after a large voting software company, Smartmatic, filed a $2.7 billion defamation suit against Fox News and three of its hosts — Dobbs, Maria Bartiromo and Jeanine Pirro. The company said the hosts helped to spread lies about Smartmatic’s role in the presidential election, to the detriment of its reputation and its business.

Fox News has been in turmoil as long-time viewers have abandoned the channel since Election Day. Former President Donald Trump has attributed his election loss to Joe Biden to unfair coverage by Fox News as well as massive voter fraud.

Dobbs was signed to Fox News by its former chief executive Roger Ailes in 2011. As the Times noted, he has long been the company’s most outspoken supporter of Trump’s economic and immigration policies. In the weeks after the election, the paper said, he went on the air to express anger that the Republican Party did not do more to act on claims that the election was rigged in favor of Biden.

The firing of Dobbs will add weight to critics’ claims the network has gone soft backing conservative views.

[End]

Interesting that Fox is taking no similar action related to weekend host Jeanine Pirro or Dobbs’s fellow Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo, both of whom are also named in the SmartMatic suit. Bartiromo, in constrast to Dobbs, has even been allowed to audition to become the new host for the 7:00 p.m. ET time slot to replace Martha MacCallum, who was recently moved into a daytime slot.

Is Dobbs a sacrificial lamb at the altar of the Swamp? Sure looks that way. Expect Fox’s ratings to continue to tank.

When is a “Conspiracy” not a “Theory”? Answer: When the corrupt news media details it in a long white-washing piece designed to inoculate all the participants. – Time Magazine details a giant anti-Trump conspiracy  in a long piece published yesterday.

I posted an analysis of it yesterday evening, which you can read at this link. Enjoy.

To all you cheap Democrats out there freaking out about this video on Twitter, this is what is commonly known as a “generous tip.” Pay attention.

Today’s Required Reading. – I know I’ve been handing out some long reading assignments here recently, but readers would do well to go over to Spiked-Online to read an excellent new piece by Ben Pile, a blogger at ClimateResistance.com. Pile’s piece details the reasons why the “green” climate alarmist community is, in contrast to most everyone else, actually very happy with draconian gubernatorial restrictions issued under the rubric of COVID-19, and in fact would love to see them continue into perpetuity.

No really, it’s true. Here’s an excerpt from Pile’s excellent piece:

The question at the centre of this bizarre, anti-human dystopianism is, ‘Will Covid help us save the planet?’. That was asked by last Sunday’s edition of the BBC’s Big Questionsspiked’s Fraser Myers, outnumbered by George Monbiot, Extinction Rebellion activists and neo-Malthusian population-obsessives, appeared on the show. He was interrupted every time he tried to counter the greens’ celebration of locking people in their homes. Such is the BBC’s absorption into the green and lockdown orthodoxies that it apparently could not find, in a population of 65million people, more than one dissenting voice.

For Monbiot, the logic of lockdown was simple enough. ‘What we’ve discovered with the pandemic is that when people are called upon to act, they’ll take far more extreme action than environmentalists have ever called for’, he said. In Monbiot’s view, all that was required to elicit the obedience of the population was for the government to make it ‘abundantly clear that we have to do this for the good of all’. But this is not true.

If it were true, there would not have been the need to pass emergency legislation, to force businesses to close, and to abolish gatherings, including protests, all under threat of fines of up to £10,000. Which is far in excess of what most people could afford without serious consequences, including the loss of their home. Moreover, there are countless reports of local authorities and the police failing to understand the regulations they were enforcing and exceeding their authority. People have stayed at home because there was nowhere to go to, and nothing to do, and because they do not want to break the law, and because they have been terrified of the virus. A July survey of British people’s estimation of the deaths caused by Covid found that (excluding ‘don’t know’) they overestimated the number of fatalities by up to 10 times. A third overestimated by 10 to 100 times, and 15 per cent overestimated by over 100 times.

[End]

Go read the rest of it – it’s about a 10-minute read altogether. You’ll be glad you invested the time.

Today’s Short-Term Memory Reminder. – Just a reminder that today, a full month after the Capitol Riot, the “temporary,” barbed-wire-topped perimeter fence remains around the Capitol Building – and is likely to be reinforced into a permanent wall – and Joe Biden still has an army of 7,000 National Guard personnel deployed in the police state that our nation’s capital has become.

And guess what else? It’s costing you half a billion dollars. From a story at the DailyWire:

The presence of National Guard troops in Washington, D.C., is racking up a hefty bill of $500 million as threats reportedly require them to remain into early spring.

The estimate exceeds even the $480 million Bloomberg projected Thursday, according to an official who confirmed the number to The Hill, and does not include the costs incurred by the city.

Approximately 26,000 guardsmen from all 50 states, as well as three U.S. territories and the District of Columbia, descended on the capital in the wake of the unrest on Jan. 6, locking down the sensitive areas around the Capitol building, National Mall, and large portions of downtown with police barricades and razor-topped fences.

Troop numbers have decreased to around 7,000 since the inauguration of President Joe Biden, with about 5,000 planning to remain until at least mid-March, in accordance with a Department of Homeland Security bulletin that warns threats remain even after the inauguration.

Information suggests that some ideologically-motivated violent extremists with objections to the exercise of governmental authority and the presidential transition, as well as other perceived grievances fueled by false narratives, could continue to mobilize to incite or commit violence,” the bulletin said.

[End]

Note that last part: DHS has the ability to continue with this pretense of a “threat” from nebulous “ideologically-motivated violent extremists” into perpetuity, and has zero obligation under the law to prove the pretense is real to the public. If all that is required to say is that “information suggests” such threats exist, then DHS can accurately say that any threat it wished to imagine “exists” somewhere in the United States today.

This threat, “suggested by information” according to Biden’s DHS, is the one that’s being used to turn Washington DC into a police state via the abuse of the men and women of the National Guard.

That’s a national disgrace. A very expensive one.

That is all.

Tuesday News Roundup: Racism Causes Climate Change and Rep. Steve Cohen is a Creep

…aaaaannnnnd nobody cares. – Failed Fox daytime hosts Bill Hemmer and ol’ what’s-her-name kicked off their new evening show on Fox News last night with a self-serving tweet:

Meanwhile, half of the news channel’s former audience was tuned in to OANN or NewsMax, happy as clams.

It turns out that being extremely not-funny for woke audiences 5 days a week in today’s America is a very lucrative enterprise:

His “meds” are apparently underwear, socks, pants, a shirt and shoes. – As Bill de Blasio’s New York City continues to fall apart at the seams, today’s news involves a nude man who pushed another man in front of an oncoming subway train and then died when he… oh, just read the story at the Daily Caller:

The naked man who died after pushing another man onto the subway tracks in New York City was “off his medication,” according to his mom.

The man was electrocuted after he attacked the disabled US Army vet that jumped down to help the guy he had originally pushed onto the subway tracks, the New York Post reported Sunday. The naked man fell onto the third rail and was electrocuted, the outlet reported.

“He was off his medication,” the man’s mom, Ethel Trammell, told the outlet. “The last time he was here was Jan. 4, which was his birthday. If he got off his medication, he just wasn’t stable, and the longer he was off, he would get aggressive.”

“The guy on the subway, that definitely was not my son,” Trammell added. ‘This was one of the nicest guys in the world. He was so nice, he would give you the shirt off his back.”

[End]

Yes, as always seems to be the case in stories like this, the guy who killed someone else by committing a heinous act of violence is just the sweetest human being on earth. No doubt he was an honor student and an altar boy, too.

Nowhere does the story address the obvious question: How did a nude man manage to make his way all the way down to a New York City subway platform in the first place without anyone doing anything about it? But then, this is Bill de Blasio’s New York City, so why would anyone ask that question at all?

The narrative to make being a Trump supporter illegal is gaining steam. – We’ve all known that Tennessee Democrat Steve Cohen is one of the most disgusting creeps in the U.S. congress, an often incoherent creep who looks like a villain from a bad serial killer movie. Yesterday, he provided additional proof of  his basic slimy-ness by advancing the growing Democrat/media narrative that being a Trump supporter is something that should be outlawed.

During an appearance on CNN, Cohen labeled any and all of the 80% or so of National Guard members who supported the President as being likely threats to China Joe Potato Head Biden on Inauguration Day in his effort to justify the FBI vetting of every one of the 26,000 Guard personnel who are in DC today.

From a story at JustTheNews.com:

Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., suggested on Monday that people in the National Guard who have been activated to secure the inauguration on Wednesday of President-elect Joe Biden might be Trump supporters and therefore “might want to do something” to Biden or disrupt the event.

The FBI has been involved in vetting deployed members of the Guard to be sure that none of them will pose a threat to the inauguration or to Joe Biden.

“The U.S. Army issued a statement late Sunday obtained by Fox News that said it is working with the Secret Service to determine if any service members on hand need additional background screening. The statement said that all service members are familiar with the Threat Awareness and Reporting Program, which ‘requires department personnel to report any information regarding known or suspected extremist behavior that could be a threat to the department or the U.S.'”

But Rep. Cohen took it a step further: “The [National] Guard is 90 some-odd percent male, and only about 20 percent of white males voted for Biden,” he said. “You’ve got to figure that in the Guard, which is predominantly more conservative … they’re probably not more than 25 percent of the people there protecting us that voted for Biden. The other 75 percent are in the large class of folks that might want to do something.”

The implication from Cohen that being a Trump voter makes one a possible seditionist or a threat to the safety of the President-elect was pushed back on from both CNN and the Washington Post, two news outlets that have themselves been harsh critics of President Trump.

[End]

They hate you and would rather you were dead, folks. If you still don’t believe me now, you will find out the hard way soon enough.

New liberal fake environmentalist mantra: Killing trees is baaaaad, but killing bamboo is goooood.

*sigh*

But wait, here’s an even better new liberal fake environmentalist mantra from China Joe’s very own “climate team”: Racism causes climate change! I swear I do not make this stuff up, folks:

From the story at DailyWire:

Two aides named by President-elect Joe Biden to handle environmental issues claim “systemic racism” is partially to blame for climate change.

The Washington Free Beacon reported that Maggie Thomas has been tapped for the Office of Domestic Climate Policy chief of staff and Cecilia Martinez will serve as “senior director for environmental justice. Both incoming advisers have said racism drives climate change while insisting Biden’s environmental reforms should be based on “racial and economic justice.”

In 2019, the House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis released an “Equitable & Just” climate platform that demanded “environmental justice, equity and reducing pollution in overburdened communities” be front and center in the fight against climate change.

“For too long, systemic racism and injustice have disproportionately exposed economically disadvantaged communities, tribal communities, and communities of color to the highest levels of toxic pollution. As the current COVID-19 crisis demonstrates, the interconnection between environmental and health risks has created crisis conditions for communities already battling toxic pollution that causes respiratory and other illnesses. Unless intentionally interrupted, systemic racism will continue to be a major obstacle to creating a healthy planet. The only path forward is to design national climate policies that are centered on justice,” Martinez said in a press release for the platform.

Thomas has her own climate plan, which calls for trillions more in government spending to fight climate change, including more welfare programs such as rent and utility relief. The plan also demands the U.S. move away from fossil fuels. She demands Biden use executive action to establish a “government-wide environmental justice initiative” that would focus “federal environmental policy around equity, justice, and inclusion.”

[End]

Remember: This is the sock puppet presidency whose Inauguration theme tomorrow is “national unity.”

My goodness.

Speaking of that “unity” inauguration, here’s how it’s currently going:

Similar scenes will be coming to big cities near you in the next four years. Bookmark this piece so you can refer back to it when it does.

Saturday News Roundup: Fox News is the Canary in the Coal Mine for the GOP

Fox News is an object lesson for the Republican Party. – The corrupt news media is filled these days with reports about the rapidly declining ratings situation at Fox News. After dominating the cable news landscape for the last 15-20 years and guffawing daily as its competitors aired content whose audience could fit into a phone booth, Fox suddenly finds itself trailing behind both CNN and MSNBC, and badly.

As I pointed out earlier this week, Fox, which at one point boasted 18 of the 20 top-rated cable news programs, now has just two – The Five and Tucker Carlson – which still break into that level. Sean Captain Tick-Tock Hannity, who had the top-rated program in all of cable television for several recent years, came in at #27 in last week’s ratings measurement:

Image

Simply put: Fox News is tanking bigly since Election Night for the simple fact that supporters of President Donald Trump are abandoning it. Now, here’s the big key: Trump’s supporters are abandoning Fox News because Fox News abandoned President Trump.

The Election Night premature call of Arizona for Joe Biden was just one event in an abandonment process by Fox that grew throughout the year of 2020. The visible shift in Fox’s perspective and editorial content began as early as mid-2019, after it had hired former House Speaker and noted Trump-hater Paul Ryan to join its board of directors. While the conservative tilt of the channel’s core evening opinion shows remains intact to this day, the tilt of the daytme programming and the 2-hour evening news bloc hosted by Bret Baier and Martha MacAllum has moved increasingly into the anti-Trump camp.

Fox’s ratings have obviously suffered along with this steady move to the political left. The early call of Arizona was just the last straw on the back of a ratings camel that had had straws heaped upon it daily over the prior 18 months. Fox is now in deep doo-doo since, unlike its competitors at CNN and MSNBC, which are nothing more than media loss leaders for massive international corporate entities, it is a company that relies on advertising ratings to be profitable, and must make a profit to stick around.

And here’s the bottom line: Those Trump people won’t be coming back. They aren’t going to calm down eventually and return to the fold – they feel no residue of loyalty whatsoever to a media company filled with talking heads who abandoned them.

The Republican Party today finds itself very much in the same leaky boat in which Fox News is currently foundering. The GOP’s steadily advancing betrayal of President Trump since Election Day, as its congressional members sink back into the muck of the DC Swamp and return to their Democan/Republicrat UniParty ways has been very visible and upsetting to Trump supporters. Those Trump supporters now make up the vast preponderance of the party’s voter base.

Mitch McConnell and the RINO caucuses in the senate and house appear to be operating under the belief that they can go about betraying and getting rid of Trump – who has been a pain in their backside for five long years now – and they’ll be able to somehow recover once Trump is gone. They possess such rank contempt for Trump’s voters that they truly believe that those voters will just return to the fold well in advance of the 2022 mid-term elections as memories of Trump and Trump-ism fade and those voters wake up to the realization that their only alternative to voting for RINOs is to vote for Democrats.

This is a very perilous thought process for these Swamp rats to be entertaining, because it ignores several key factors about Trump’s army of 75 million voters:

– Millions of those voters were not Republicans to begin with. Trump’s policies and achievements brought millions of new voters into the GOP, many of them minorities who had never voted for a Republican in their lives;

– Millions of those voters are loyal to Trump as an individual, and hold no allegiance to any political party;

– Millions of those voters were attracted to Trump due to his singular willingness to call out the pervasive corruption in Washington, DC and fight against it. Their loyalties will never transfer onto UniParty swamp dwellers who spend all of their time in DC trying to figure out how to profit from the Swamp.

These realities leave the GOP in great peril. The minority voters who came to support and vote for Trump have zero innate affection to the Republican Party, which has by and large spent the last half-century ignoring them under the assumption they would always vote for Democrats. The new blue collar voters, the middle-class workers and union members who voted for Trump, are by and large people whose innate instinct will now be to go back to voting for Democrats who promise them the world. True, Democrats don’t deliver any better than the Republicans, but at least they make the promises; at least they pay attention to them. And those voters who came into the Party to vote for Trump due to his fight against the Swamp are most likely now to just go back to staying at home on election days to come.

We have already witnessed McConnell’s intent to go back to ignoring this army of millions of new GOP voters with his refusal to even allow a bill containing a $2,000 COVID relief payment to come to a vote in December. That is who Mitch McConnell really is, and it is where he plans to take the Republican minority caucus in the Senate over the next two years. So long as McConnell remains the GOP’s leader in the Senate, that is what the Republican Party is going to look like.

If McConnell now follows up on his stated plans to support the Democrats’ latest impeachment scam and tries to round up enough GOP votes in the senate for a conviction, that act will be seen by Trump’s supporters in exactly the same way they see Fox’s premature call of Arizona: The straw that broke the camel’s back. Once you have alienated those millions of Trump voters, you will never get them back.

Fox News is the canary in the coal mine for the entire GOP. Unfortunately, the Party’s leaders can’t see that the canary is already dead.

That is all.

Wednesday News Roundup: The Nation’s Airports Freed From CNN Tyranny and the U.S. Chamber Betrays America

The DC UniParty continues to push its impeachment farce. – I cover that subject in a separate piece this morning.

American travelers are about to be freed from the grip of #fakenews tyranny. – CNN CEO Jeffrey Zucker notified his organization that its monopoly hold on the nation’s airport monitors will come to an end as of March 31:

Image

If you’re thinking “hey, maybe now we’ll be able to get some real news when we’re going through an airport,” don’t be so optimistic and naive. They’ll probably just replace CNN with Fox News.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce formalizes its betrayal of the American public. – It’s been trending leftwards for awhile now, having thrown in half of its campaign contributions to the Democrats in the last election cycle, but the USCC made its betrayal of the American public formal yesterday, announcing it will cancel future campaign contributions to any Republicans who supported President Trump’s very legitimate challenges to the clearly fraudulent presidential election we just suffered through.

From a story at The Hill:

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the powerful pro-business lobbying group, said Tuesday it will halt political contributions to certain lawmakers following the deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol last week.

“There are some members that by their actions will have forfeited the support of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Period, full stop,” Neil Bradley, chief policy officer at the Chamber, said in a press conference.

The Chamber’s political action committee (PAC) is typically a reliable resource for Republicans.

Bradley said he would not name lawmakers whose support will be pulled. He was questioned specifically on if the group would pull support from Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), the first senator to throw his support behind objecting to the electoral vote count.

“We’re right in the middle of this, right now and unfortunately regrettably, it’s not over … we’re in the middle of ongoing votes that will happen in the House and the Senate,” he said.

“All of those things will factor into that and we’re going to have a lot more to say about the members whose actions last week and the actions over the next eight days and beyond will have cost them the Chamber’s support.”

The Chamber’s PAC previously gave $10,000 to Hawley, which Bradley confirmed but said the Chamber has never required someone return a donation.

“We did support him. I have to tell you that watching the events of the last week, we have been terribly concerned and disappointed by what we’ve seen. I will say that while a lot of folks are singling out individual elected officials to focus on, I wouldn’t focus on just the junior senior from Missouri and we are going to have a lot more to say on him and others as we get through this period that we’re in,” he said.

[End]

In taking this action, the USCC joins many of its multi-national corporate members, like AT&T, Comcast, Verizon and Disney, which have essentially become state-owned subsidiaries of the Chinese Communist Party in recent years. It is now apparent that the ChiComs now essentially control the entire apparatus at the nation’s most powerful business lobbying organization.

Make no mistake about this: This assault on Hawley and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz – in direct coordination with the Democrat Party – is an effort to delegitimize two of the men who would be the most likely successors to take up the mantle of Trumpism in the 2024 election cycle. You should expect similar assaults on Republican office-holders like Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton, Florida Gov. Ron Desantis and South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem to begin ramping up soon.

The Swamp’s UniParty has already chosen its preferred 2024 GOP – Nikki Haley – and is already working hard to prop her up and destroy her likely opposition.

Today’s Short Term Memory Reminder. – As he prepares to serve as one of Nancy Pelosi’s hand-picked impeachment managers, we should all remember that Eric Swalwell recently was engaged in a long and sordid love affair with a Chinese Communist honey-pot spy. Not only has Pelosi refused to remove him from his seat on the House Intelligence Committee for this reckless behavior, she rewards him with this new plum assignment.

Like those multi-national corporations running the USCC, the Democrat Party is basically a subsidiary of the ChiCom Party.

Today’s Required Reading, from liberal writer Glenn Greenwald. – Glenn Greenwald is pretty much the only liberal voice in America worth paying attention to anymore, and he has an excellent piece this morning chronicling how Big Tech has basically destroyed the Parler social media platform in just the last week.

Here is an excerpt from that piece:

Over the last year, Parler encountered immense success. Millions of people who objected to increasing repression of speech on the largest platforms or who had themselves been banned signed up for the new social media company.

As Silicon Valley censorship radically escalated over the past several months — banning pre-election reporting by The New York Post about the Biden family, denouncing and deleting multiple posts from the U.S. President and then terminating his access altogether, mass-removal of right-wing accounts — so many people migrated to Parler that it was catapulted to the number one spot on the list of most-downloaded apps on the Apple Play Store, the sole and exclusive means which iPhone users have to download apps. “Overall, the app was the 10th most downloaded social media app in 2020 with 8.1 million new installs,” reported TechCrunch.

It looked as if Parler had proven critics of Silicon Valley monopolistic power wrong. Their success showed that it was possible after all to create a new social media platform to compete with Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. And they did so by doing exactly what Silicon Valley defenders long insisted should be done: if you don’t like the rules imposed by tech giants, go create your own platform with different rules.

But today, if you want to download, sign up for, or use Parler, you will be unable to do so. That is because three Silicon Valley monopolies — Amazon, Google and Apple — abruptly united to remove Parler from the internet, exactly at the moment when it became the most-downloaded app in the country.

If one were looking for evidence to demonstrate that these tech behemoths are, in fact, monopolies that engage in anti-competitive behavior in violation of antitrust laws, and will obliterate any attempt to compete with them in the marketplace, it would be difficult to imagine anything more compelling than how they just used their unconstrained power to utterly destroy a rising competitor.

[End]

Indeed, what Big Tech monopolies have done to Parler over the last week should frighten even the most rabid Trump-hater among us. It has been a display of raw, unashamed monopolistic brutishness this nation has not really experienced since the days when John D. Rockefeller and Standard Oil used its own monopolistic power to starve out competing refiners and pipeline companies.

If they can do this to Parler, they can easily do this to any of us, and if you believe your hatred of Donald Trump somehow makes you exempt from this sort of abuse, boy are you in for a big surprise down the road.

Go read the rest of Greenwald’s piece – it’s long, but it will be the best 15 minutes of time you invest today.

Tuesday News Roundup: America is in the Midst of a Fascist Takeover

We are unable to confirm reports that it is playing an endless loop of “Stairway to Heaven.” – Scientists revealed yesterday that they have discovered an FM radio signal emanating from the Jupiter moon of Gannymede:

The carnage at Fox News continues. – Barely a year ago, Fox News dominated the cable news landscape. It regularly fielded the 10 highest-rated programs in the space, and CNN seldom had an hour-long segment rated in the top 25.

That’s all changed now, as the latest weekly ratings clearly demonstrate:

Image

Fox primetime shows like Tucker Carlson and Sean Captain Tick Tock Hannity formerly drew 5 million viewers every night, often topping the competition at CNN and MSNBC combined. Today, Bret Baier, Martha MacAllum and Laura Ingraham are getting stomped by the lunatics at Mornng Joe.

This is a crisis. So, what does Fox management decide to do? Why, re-shuffle the lineup by moving the same failing hosts to different time slots. Check out this story at US News and World Report:

Both Fox and CNN announced lineup changes Monday, as is often the case for news organizations with a new president about to take power. CNN’s Jake Tapper and Fox’s John Roberts are among those taking on new roles.

Starting next Monday, Fox’s 7 p.m. hour will be led by a rotating group of opinion hosts, with a permanent host to be named later. For years, first with Shepard Smith and then with MacCallum, Fox has stressed news instead of opinion in that hour.

Yet MacCallum, who had been comfortably ahead in the ratings, has slipped behind both MSNBC and CNN at 7 p.m. since the election, the Nielsen company said. That’s also when Newsmax has seen its greatest success with a strongly pro-Trump show hosted by Greg Kelly.

In fact, Newsmax issued a statement that its improved daytime and 7 p.m. ratings since the election has triggered changes at Fox.

“The Fox is on the run,” Newsmax said.

Fox denied that Newsmax had anything to do with its moves, and pointed to a quote from an October article that said schedule changes were being considered. While Newsmax has sharply increased its audience since the election, with viewers spurred on by President Donald Trump, Fox routinely has more than triple Newsmax’s viewers.

“Chris Ruddy is irrelevant,” Fox said in a statement, referencing Newsmax’s CEO.

Still, there’s been a dramatic change in Fox’s daytime position.

[End]

This is basically just shuffling the deck chairs on the Titanic at this point. Fox News hit an iceberg when it prematurely called the state of Arizona on Election Night and alienated an enormous portion of its viewer base. Reassigning the same old stale hosts to new time slots isn’t going to plug that massive hole in the engine room.

Obviously, Fox management has no idea what to do about the emergency it created, and that could not have happened to a nicer bunch of people.

We are in the midst of a fascist takeover of our country. – That’s what this is, folks. The first thing any budding fascist junta does is to destroy the freedoms of assembly, religion and speech. The next thing the junta does to the population it wishes to dominate is confiscate its guns.

The Democrat Party, with the willing assistance of the corrupt news media and Big Tech monopolies, is already well down this road. They have successfully used the COVID-19 pandemic to dramatically limit the freedoms of assembly and religion, and they are in the process of using last week’s Capitol riot as the lynchpin for destroying our freedom of speech.

As the Big Tech crackdown on conservative thought and speech has been taking place, the puppet masters for China Joe Potato Head Biden have had their elderly marionette out there talking about his plans to destroy the National Rifle Association, and thus the 2nd Amendment. To facilitate that effort, Biden plans to appoint a leftist radical to head up the Civil Rights Division at his reconstituted “Justice” Department. Her goal will be to ensure that the guns are taken from the evil white people first.

No, I’m not kidding.:

From the story at DailyWire:

Biden has openly called for banning semi-automatic firearms, high capacity magazines, and has said that he wants to tax owners of semi-automatic firearms under the National Firearms Act for weapons that they already own. An NFA tax stamp costs $200 per item.

Biden’s remarks come after national tensions escalated last week following a violent riot that broke out at the Capitol as Congress was certifying the Electoral College results. Biden also made remarks that were widely deemed racist and sexist following the incident when he announced that “priority” for economic business relief would be made in part based on race and gender.

Adding to the headache that Biden faces is a report from Fox News on the woman that he has nominated to head the civil rights division at the Department of Justice.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson highlighted previous remarks that Kristen Clarke has made that were widely panned online as racist.

Carlson read off the following quotes from Clarke:

  • “Please use the following theories and observations to assist you in your search for truth regarding the genetic differences between Blacks and whites.”
  • “One: Dr. Richard King reveals that at the core of the human brain is the ‘locus coeruleus,’ which is a structure that is Black, because it contains large amounts of neuro-melanin which is essential for its operation. Two: Black infants sit, stand, crawl and walk sooner than whites. Three: Carol Barnes notes that human mental processes are controlled by melanin–that same chemical which gives Blacks their superior physical and mental abilities. Four: Some scientists have revealed that most whites are unable to produce melanin because their pineal glands are often calcified or non-functioning. Pineal calcification rates with Africans are five to 15 percent, Asians 15 to 25 percent and Europeans 60 to 80 percent. This is the chemical basis for the cultural differences between Blacks and whites. Five: Melanin endows Blacks with greater mental, physical and spiritual abilities — something which cannot be measured based on Eurocentric standards.”

“Let that sink in. ‘Melanin endows black people with greater mental, physical and spiritual abilities,’” Carlson continued. “No, this isn’t an editorial from the Final Call, Louis Farrakhan’s free newspaper. It’s a direct quote from the person Joe Biden is about to put in charge of our country’s civil rights laws. Even at Harvard, crackpot theories like this were considered deranged and dangerous. After an outcry on campus, Kristen Clarke suggested that she didn’t ‘necessarily’ believe what she had written. The Harvard Crimson, a left-wing paper, did not buy that explanation. ‘Well does she or doesn’t she?’ wrote the editors. ‘So far, she has given us every indication that she does.’”

The next four years are going to be a time of unending crisis for our nation, brought to you courtesy of the aspiring fascist junta that is the Democrat Party.

Don’t shoot me, I’m just the messenger.

It’s Carnage Out There for Fox News

It’s carnage out there for Fox News. – Since the moment Fox News decided to issue a premature call of Arizona for China Joe Potato Head Biden on Election Night, the cable news channel has seen its ratings take a massive slide. As Daily Wire reports, “Between the dates of November 2nd and November 11th, viewership dropped by 40% for Neil Cavuto, 40% for Bret Baier — who hosted one of the presidential debates between Trump and Biden — 40% for Martha MacCallum, 36% for Laura Ingraham, 33% for Sean Hannity, and 29% for Tucker Carlson.”

Yes, Fox remains the #1-ranked cable news channel, but that’s only because CNN and MSNBC have voluntarily discarded most of their own audiences over the past decade in order to promote the political agenda of the radical left, i.e., the Democrat Party. And let’s face it: When your flagship hard evening news report hosted by Bret Baier bleeds 40% of its viewership in a little over a week, and your  biggest prime time star is down by almost 30%, you have a problem.

It’s a problem that has many of the remaining hands at Fox worried, according to former anchor of “The Five” Eric Bolling. Bolling told Daily Wire that his conversations with his friends at Fox convinces him that there is a great deal of fear haunting the fake news channel’s halls these days:

“Here’s what happened guys, let’s be honest with you… on November 3rd — Fox declared Biden the winner in Arizona. MAGA-world went ballistic, they said ‘I’m not watching Fox News,’ they switched over and they looked and they found Newsmax,” Bolling said.

Bolling then sparked rapturous applause among the TPUSA event attendees when he said that “Fox lost about 40% of their audience. 40%. That’s a big number.” In recent weeks, Fox has disputed such claims, pointing out that while some programs have dropped a third of their viewers since election night, they still still atop the cable news ratings.

“I have friends still there that say they are very, very nervous about it, they’re sucking wind on it and they don’t know how to turn it around.”

[End]

The truth about Fox is that they did it to themselves. I personally think the channel’s inevitable decline started with the decision to bring Paul Ryan onto its board of directors. The inevitable anti-Trump tilt he has brought to the operation is palpable, especially in Fox’s daytime programming. In the midst of its record ratings of the past five years, Fox’s management lost sight of what was driving those ratings.

The hiring of old Clinton hack Donna Brazile – who got caught feeding Hillary Clinton debate questions during the 2016 campaign – as a paid contributor in 2019 – a decision no doubt driven and approved by Ryan – only served to exacerbate the situation and ensure the channel’s inevitable decline. During 2020, Neil Cavuto and other daytime hosts embarked on a decidedly leftward tilt to the conduct of their shows, and the previously stellar “The Five” became increasingly unwatchable due to the radicalization of Juan Williams. Top that all off with Chris Wallace’s doing a tag team on President Trump with Joe Biden as he “moderated” the first presidential debate, and you have the makings of a mass audience exodus.

Trump supporters had been looking for the first excuse to jump ship over to OANN or Newsmax, and the absurdly premature call of Arizona on Election Night – a call made while some Arizonans still stood in lines waiting to vote – triggered the exodus. And now, Bolling’s friends at the network are all worried about their future and have no idea how to fix the problem.

Well, it’s a problem that can’t be fixed. That’s the deal: Fox News management intentionally and with malice aforethought made a series of programming decisions that were consciously designed to divorce the channel from the Trump support base. That is reality and it is obvious to anyone paying any attention at all.

That divorce is now final and there will be no reconciliation – this is not some Hallmark holiday movie with a happy ending.

That is all.

WATCH: China and America’s Elite – A Tucker Carlson Monologue Every American Should See

Yes, I know everyone hates Fox News now, but bear with me here. – Tucker Carlson delivered a revealing monologue on last night’s show about how the ChiComs are going about bribing and influencing America’s politicians, educators and other elements of the “elite” in our society. It is so on point that Twitter is trying and failing to block access to it this morning.

Take the time to either watch the clip below or read the transcript that follows. You will be glad you did.

Watch this clip:

Here’s the Transcript:

Since the day Donald Trump was elected in 2016, we have been told that Russia is at the very top of the list of threats to America. Russia has penetrated our government. Russia threatens our democracy. Russia works tirelessly to subvert our economy and our way of life.

Of course, such claims were a lie, and we’re all aware of that now. Russia never had the power or the money to control our government, and there’s no evidence they even tried. But that doesn’t mean that there was no collusion.

In fact, top leaders in American government and business have been compromised by a foreign power that seeks to undermine our country and our democratic system. It turns out that many of the very people who ranted so hysterically about Russia  were doing precisely what they claimed to decry. They were working on behalf of our chief global rival, the government of China.

The Russia hoax, effectively, was a diversion. It hid something that is not a hoax at all, but is real and threatening to all of us. We’re going to spend the foreseeable future reporting on the relationship between America’s political and financial elites and the communist government of China that has made many of them very rich.

On Nov. 28, Di Dongsheng, a professor at Renmin University in Beijing, appeared on a Chinese television show about Wall Street and international trade. Like so many in academia in China, Di is a servant of his country’s government. This video was deleted from Chinese social media soon after being uploaded, and here’s why:

DI DONSHENG (translation): The Trump administration is in a trade war with us, so why can’t we fix the Trump administration? Why, between 1992 and 2016, did China and the U.S., use to be able to settle all kinds of issues? No mater what kind of crises we encountered … things were solved in no time … We fixed everything in two months. What is the reason? I’m going to throw out something maybe a little bit explosive here. It’s just because we have people at the top. At the top of America’s core inner circle of power and influence, we have our old friends.

Two different Chinese speakers have confirmed the above translation. This is as close to a smoking gun as we have ever seen.

“We have people at the top. At the top of America’s core inner circle of power and influence.” According to Di Dongsheng, that has been true for decades.

So who are these people and how many of them work in our media and in our government? Well, Di didn’t say precisely. At another point in the program, he described a Chinese agent working as a vice president at, “a top Wall Street financial institution.” Di explained that he couldn’t say more without making political trouble.

Di did tell his audience that one agent in particular was especially useful, and he goes on at some length about her. He describes her as an American who’s lived abroad for many years and is now a Chinese citizen, and this seems to baffle him a little bit. The Chinese government doesn’t allow dual citizenship. Why would they? Why would anyone? Di seems pleased that the U.S. government is foolish enough to allow it. He explains that this American agent, who lives at least part of the year in Beijing, helped the Chinese government with a propaganda operation in Washington in 2015, and he goes on to describe that in some detail.

The Obama administration was easy to manipulate, Di suggests. The Chinese had many friends among the Obama people. The problem came when Donald Trump was elected. After that, he says, everything changed.

DI DONGSHENG (translation): For the past 30 years, 40 years, we have been utilizing the core power of the United States … Since the 1970s, Wall Street had a very strong influence on the domestic and foreign affairs of the United States, so we had a channel to rely on. But the problem is that after 2008, the status of Wall Street has declined, and more importantly, after 2016, Wall Street can’t fix Trump. Why? It’s very awkward. Trump had a previous soft default issue with Wall Street, so there was a conflict between them. But I won’t go into details, I may not have enough time. So during the U.S.-China trade war they [Wall Street] tried to help. And I know that, my friends on the U.S. side told me that they tried to help, but they couldn’t do much.

Since the 1970s, Di said, Wall Street has had enormous influence over the way the United States government operates. The Chinese government, he says, has enormous influence on Wall Street, and that arrangement worked very well for a long time.

Then Donald Trump unexpectedly was elected in 2016 and Wall Street was infuriated. “Wall Street can’t fix Trump,” he said, but they tried. This gives the game away.

If you’re wondering why our political class has stood by and allowed the Chinese government to degrade this country and our way of life, stood by as the Chinese government has flooded the United States with deadly opioids that have killed hundreds of thousands of people, stood by as the Chinese government ripped off billions of dollars worth of intellectual property from our companies, there’s your answer.

Earlier this year, the chairman of Harvard’s chemistry department was arrested for taking $50,000 per month from the Communist Party of China in return for sending secrets and referring top scientists to Beijing. It barely rated as a scandal and you may not even be aware it happened. Why? Because so many are on the take.

In effect, Donald Trump was an impediment to this very lucrative arrangement, and for that reason, Di explains in the video, America’s most powerful elites — and he calls them that — got to work on electing a new president again:

DI DONSHENG (translation): But now we’re seeing Biden was elected [laughter]. The traditional elite, the political elite, the establishment, they’re very close to Wall Street. So you see that, right? Trump has been saying that Biden’s son has some sort of global foundation. Have you noticed that? Who helped him [Biden’s son] build the foundations? Got it? There are a lot of deals in all these. [laughter, applause]

Di notes, because the Chinese do pay close attention to what we say here, Donald Trump has complained about Hunter Biden and his ties to the Chinese government. So now you know why you weren’t allowed to talk about Hunter Biden’s laptop and why big business aligned as one to suppress that story: Because they were implicated in it.

Back in October, we interviewed a man called Tony Bobulinski, because no one else would. Tony Bobulinski was a business partner of the Bidens. Here’s what he told us about China:

BOBULINSKI: And in a document that you guys have in — I think it’s been provided to, you know, to the world — the Chinese referenced that because of their trust in the Biden family, that Chairman Ye and Director Zang are excited about moving forward in this. And in that document, they reference loaning $5 million to the ‘BD family’ … The ‘BD family’ is the Biden family.

CARLSON: What are the implications of this going forward if Joe Biden is elected president, which could very well happen? How does this constrain his ability to deal with China?

BOBULINSKI: Are you asking for my personal —

CARLSON: I am, I’m asking for your opinion as someone who’s worked with the Chinese.

BOBULINSKI: So I think Joe Biden and the Biden family are compromised. 

“I think Joe Biden and the Biden family are compromised.”

It looks like Tony Bobulinski was right about that. And it looks like the Bidens are far from the only ones who have been compromised.

That is all.

Wednesday News Roundup: The Presidential Election Seems Destined for the Courts

As the day dawns on November 4, America faces a temporarily hung jury on its presidential race, although how long it will remain hung is anyone’s guess. As of this writing early in the morning on November 4, President Trump clings to narrow leads in the states of Georgia, North Carolina and Michigan, and a much larger lead in Pennsylvania. The trouble is that, unless Arizona, where Joe Biden leads, turns around, the President would need to hang on in all four of those other states in order to gain the 270 electoral votes necessary to win a second term.

There was no Blue Wave forecast by all the media-financed pollsters in this election, nor was there the Red Wave that yours truly and others foolishly projected yesterday. What there was instead was a vast sea of still waters, barely changed from 2016, but, thanks to a tsunami of mail-in ballots of questionable provenance, shifted just enough to perhaps get the Democrat Party’s clearly-addled nominee over the finish line at the end of the day, possibly this day.

The President promised to challenge the vote counting processes in some of these states in a speech given in the wee hours of the morning, but the chances of that effort having any success does not appear to be strong. As the ballots continue to roll in from Democrat-controlled cities like Atlanta and Detroit and Philadelphia, it’s hard not to assume that some significant voter fraud is taking place in Biden’s favor. Whether the President’s team could reverse any outcomes by actually proving that such fraud was massive enough to make the difference in, say, Michigan and Georgia, which both appear destined to ultimately turn to Biden’s advantage seems unlikely given the ineptitude of such efforts from the past.

In other news from last night, Fox News again beclowned itself with election coverage that ranged from the ridiculous to the sublime. The trending-blue channel’s system of calling states was in fact so outrageously nonsensical that one of its own prime time anchors, Tucker Carlson, actually kind of called it out during a monologue about how awful the media was in general:

As per usual, Fox appeared to be more interested in giving all of its paid contributors specific amounts of contractually-required airtime than it was in actually covering the news of the election. Thus, viewers were forced to sit through endless droning and rants from the likes of Chris Wallace, Juan Williams and Donna Brazile while Fox lagged 30 minutes behind CNN and the networks in reporting actual election results.

CNN, meanwhile, ran circles around Fox, with John King and Wolf Blitzer providing near-constant up-to-the-minute coverage of the actual results to its viewers. Yes, Fake Jake Tapper was his normal insufferable self, but all in all, Election Night remains the only night in any year in which it is acceptable to tune your TV to CNN.

As  I was compiling this piece, the vote in Michigan narrowed to just a 2,000 vote Trump edge:

Trump (R): 49.2% (2,345,412 votes) Biden (D): 49.2% (2,343,266 votes)

A 2,166 vote lead with tens of thousands of absentee votes to be counted. Some of those AVs still outstanding are from Trump-leaning areas, but probably not enough. Michigan could end up becoming 2020’s version of Florida 2000, with weeks of recounts and litigation lying ahead.

Note: That Trump edge rose back up to about 21,000 a few minutes later. Who knows? Maybe there’s still hope.

It looks like President Trump will be able to hang on in North Carolina and Pennsylvania, but Georgia also could be destined to remain up in the air for days if not weeks to come.

Ohio, meanwhile, went bright red again, with the President prevailing by a whopping 8% of the vote in a state that for almost half a century was the true bellwether in presidential contests. WSJ columnist Kimberly Strassel points out just how comically wrong some of the media’s favorite pollsters were about that state:

That’s right: Quinnipiac, one of Nate Silver’s gold star polling groups, missed Michigan by 13 point. She could have ridiculed several other polling groups given that, of the 10 most recent polls of Ohio, only Trafalgar showed Trump with a lead there.

Florida also went much brighter red than it has been in decades, with Trump rolling to a fairly easy 3.5% edge in the Sunshine State. Strassel also pointed to the futility of most pollsters there:

Quinnipiac only missed Florida by 9. Holy crap.

But wait, there’s more. How many polls did we see in recent weeks showing GOP senate incumbents Lindsey Graham, John Cornyn, Roger Marshall and even Mitch McConnell in deep trouble? Hint: the correct answer is TONS of polls.

Guy Benson pointed out the absurdity of those polls early this morning:

That’s right: Lindsey Graham prevailed by double digits despite his opponent getting about $130 million in Hollywood and New York money for his race. John Cornyn fought off about $40 million of out of state money coming into his goofy opponent to win by 10 in Texas.

Back to the presidential contest: Stay tuned. We may end up seeing litigation and recounts all the way to January. We are truly in perilous times.

That is all.

The Corrupt National News Media: A ‘Collection of Liars’ Who Endanger the American Republic

I’m old enough to remember a time when, if a U.S. president had brokered multiple historic peace agreements in the Middle East and one between Kosovo and Serbia, it would have been headline news for a week. There was a time when the president who accomplished this would have been able to hold a press conference with the White House press corps and have semi-curious reporters actually ask questions about those deals. Those things would have happened even in a Republican administration, and that time was not so long ago.

But those times are gone, and will never return without fundamental change in the media establishment itself, and the manner in which our society holds media operations accountable for the serial mendacity we see committed each and every day by cable news outlets, major newspapers and fake news-oriented magazines like The Atlantic. The simple fact of the matter is that the current status quo in the U.S. news media is not only not consistent with the maintenance of a free and open society, it is actively and openly hostile to it.

Up until a few years ago, observers could be relatively sanguine about the state of the news media. The American press has always been biased. Indeed, throughout most of our country’s existence, newspapers and magazines – effectively the only means of obtaining news until the 1920s – had no issue with being openly-affiliated with and supportive of specific political parties. So, the fact that media outlets were biased was simply the maintenance of 200+ years of status quo.

Indeed, it was only during the post-World War II era, with the advent of television news operations and the growing prominence of radio, that national media outlets even bothered to put up a pretense of somehow being unbiased. Even that thin veil of pretense was mainly driven by the evolving federal “fairness doctrine” that was implemented by the Federal Communications Commission in 1949. That doctrine required TV and radio broadcasters to provide balanced coverage of elections and political issues. For many years, beginning with the Radio Act of 1927, the federal government also enforced “equal time” rules that required broadcasters to provide equal time to opposing views whenever they presented editorial content. All of that was eliminated in the 1980s to accommodate the growing development of 24-hour cable news operations, led by CNN.

For many years – this is really true, all you young people out there – CNN actually advertised itself as being “fair and balanced.” Also true is the fact that MSNBC assumed the same posture for the first decade of its existence before becoming aggressively and intentionally leftist as it transformed itself into a megaphone for Barack Obama’s 2009 presidential campaign. Fox News also claimed to be fair and balanced at its incarnation in the mid-1990s, but now only the increasingly CNN-ish Bret Baier continues to make that claim as he signs off from his nightly “Fox Report.”

Even during the days of the “fairness doctrine” and equal time laws, the major media outlets were liberally-biased. Let’s face it: This is always going to be the case, given the leftwards-tilt of most college professors, especially those who teach journalism.

But there is a crucial, qualitative difference between being biased and just being outright liars. Walter Cronkite was biased, but he wasn’t generally an outright liar. The same was true of TV news figures like David Brinkley, Roger Mudd, and even into the pre-George W. Bush years of Tom Brokaw and Peter Jennings. The shift from being figures who just put their own slants on otherwise factually-accurate news reports to being outright liars began in earnest following 9/11, led of course by Dan Rather and his use of transparently faked military documents in an effort to smear Bush while he was running for re-election. Things have only gone downhill from there.

Today, America is right back where it was during the advent of “yellow journalism” that came about in the early days of the 20th century. We’re back to having media outlets who openly pledge their allegiance to political parties or figures. If you can find a truly “fair and balanced” news operation at the national level today you will have discovered the media version of the ancient Incan and Mayan “cities of gold.” Legend has it that some such operations may exist out there, but people die before actually discovering them.

Attorney General William Barr called it out correctly on Friday when, in unusually blunt remarks, he referred to the mainstream press corps as “a collection of liars.”

From a report at NewsMax:

In an interview with Townhall, Barr’s no-holds-barred tirade zeroed in on coverage of months of racial justice demonstrations, some of which he said turned violent because of “street fighting radicals.”

“They’re basically a collection of liars. Most of the mainstream media,” he told Townhall. “They’re a collection of liars and they know exactly what they’re doing. A perfect example of that were the riots.”

He added, “Right on the street it was clear as day what was going on, anyone observing it, reporters observing it, it could not have escaped their attention that this was orchestrated violence by a hardened group of street fighting radicals.

“And they kept on excluding from their coverage all the video of this and reporting otherwise and they were doing that for partisan reasons, and they were lying to the American people. It wasn’t until they were caught red-handed after essentially weeks of this lie that they even started feeling less timid.”

According to Barr, “the national mainstream media has dropped any pretense of professional objectivity and are political actors, highly partisan who try to shape what they’re reporting to achieve a political purpose and support a political narrative that has nothing to do with the truth.”

“They’re very mendacious about it,” he continued. “It’s very destructive to our republic; it’s very destructive to the Democratic system to have that, especially being so monolithic. It’s contributing to a lot of the intensity and partisanship.”

[End]

What the AG said is absolutely correct: Our mainstream media is indeed just a collection of professional liars, operatives in propaganda operations modeled after those of Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia. As Barr points out, this model is “very destructive to our republic,” specifically because it promotes a level of abject ignorance among the vast majority of the population, which in turn leads directly to the scenes of violence and destruction and death we see taking place on the streets of Democrat-controlled cities every day.

If you read the history of the rise of Hitler and his Nazi hordes, you will see that America today is roughly where Germany stood in 1938. This summer’s riots, staged and funded by operatives of the Democrat Party, were basically our version of Kristallnacht, which took place in November of that year. As most Americans are today, the Nazi-controlled news media ensured that the public was kept safely ignorant and misinformed about the true nature of the death and destruction that happened on that fateful night.

There was no public outrage, no public backlash against the Nazi hordes for all of that, because the corrupt news media ensured the vast majority of the population knew nothing about it, and those who did know about it put the blame on the innocent victims.

That is the role the U.S. news media performs for the Democrat Party in America today, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

It is one thing for the Attorney General to call that out and speak the truth about the real state of our corrupt national media, but it is no more than a good start. If our society cannot devise some means of holding these depraved, anti-American media operations and their operatives accountable for their serial mendacity, then our Republic is well and truly doomed, and it could all happen far faster than we can even imagine.

Wednesday News Roundup: It’s the Democrat Party’s Kristallnacht in Kenosha and Portland

Poor Juan Williams is all sad and stuff. – Leftist media Mandarin Juan Williams, who daily renders Fox News’s “The Five” pretty much unwatchable, went into an angry tirade yesterday over the remarks made by a Cuban American at the GOP convention Monday night. In doing so, as his his habit, Williams had to construct a huge strawman.

That Cuban American, Maximo Alvarez, had the temerity to speak truthfully about what the communist Democrat Party is presenting to American voters this year:

“I’m speaking to you today because I have seen people like this before,” Alvarez said. “I’ve seen movements like this before. I’ve seen ideas like this before, and I am here to tell you, we cannot let them take over our country. I heard the promises of Fidel Castro. And I can never forget all those who grew up around me, who look like me, who suffer and starved and died because they believed those empty promises. They swallow their communist poison pill.”

Williams responded to this 100% true statement thusly:

“Hearing a speaker at a major party convention compare Joe Biden to a communist dictator, I thought that was pretty disgusting,” Williams said. “I just thought that was so wild. And again, we know Joe Biden. He’s been around. He is a pro American, moderate politician. So why would anybody think ‘oh, that’s cute,’ or unless it’s just name-calling?”

See, the problem for Williams here is that Joe Biden has been around, and we do know Joe Biden. We know Joe Biden as a habitual plagiarist and serial liar, a craven political animal who has for half a century been willing to do and say anything is party tells him to do or say. We know Joe Biden as a guy who used the office of vice president to loot the Ukraine and China in order to enrich himself and his family. We know Joe Biden today as a guy who is a virtual puppet, a human mannequin who is kept isolated in his basement by his handlers most of the time, only to be brought out and paraded around for the TV cameras whenever the situation calls for it.

We also know Joe Biden today as a willing puppet, the demented face of a political party that believes its time has come to destroy the American Republic and create the socialist/Marxist utopia for which it has been striving for more than a century.

Maximo Alvarez is a great American who has seen this all before, and knows first-hand how it ravages a society. All he did was speak the truth on national TV, something that fellow travelers like Juan Williams just cannot stand.

Speaking of Marxist fellow travelers, how about that Donna Brazile? – The decision by Fox News to hire the discredited Donna Brazile as a “contributor” remains a real mystery. She never has anything compelling or interesting to say, and her appearances have become increasingly confrontational and irrational.

Yesterday, in an appearance on Fox and Friends, she went completely off the rails. Watch:

Serious question: What purpose does this serve? Does stuff like this really help Fox’s viewership? Does it increase ratings in some way? Who is Fox’s management attempting to appeal to with this kind of nonsense?

The one useful thing Brazile does in this particular clip is to perfectly personify today’s Democrat: Unhinged, irrational, rude, violent, confrontational and completely unable to make a valid point or defend an idea.

Who knows? Maybe that’s what Fox management pays her to do. Whatever the reason, it’s incredibly tiresome.

The New York Times punks… the New York Times? – This is hilarious. In an effort to take a shot at Donald Trump, Jr., the “fact checkers” at the New York Times took him to task for his blaming China for releasing the China Virus upon the rest of the world. The trouble with this attack is that it conflicts with a similar claim made by … wait for it… the New York Times “fact checkers”!

I kid you not. From a report by Brietbart:

So-called “fact-checkers” at the New York Times alleged Donald Trump Jr. misled the public by saying during the first day of the Republican National Convention Monday that the coronavirus struck the United States “courtesy of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)” and his father took swift action to stop travel from China.

The Times claimed that “a wealth of evidence” suggests the coronavirus arrived in the U.S. through Europe and various other routes, not just China, echoing its Democrat allies and Chinese propaganda fueled by the Beijing-influenced World Health Organization (W.H.O.), a United Nations entity.

However, the newspaper’s fact check itself acknowledged that health officials first detected the highly contagious and deadly coronavirus in China. The virus spread to Europe and the rest of the world from China.

The newspaper also omitted a significant detail from its fact check — the first case to reach the United States involved an individual who flew from Wuhan, China, considered the birthplace of the virus, to Seattle, Washington, on January 15.

[End]

You just cannot make this stuff up, folks.

Meanwhile, Kristallnacht has come to Kenosha and Portland… – The Democrat-sponsored riots continued to rage on with no end in sight, and there is no end is in sight because that’s what the Democrat Party wants.

And now people are getting shot.

Here are some of the highlights brought to you by real journalist Andy Ngo:

And on and on it goes. For those who remain confused about what it is that the Democrat Party is bringing to us with these increasingly violent insurrections in our major cities, go read up on the Nazis’ Kristallnacht.  That happened on November 9 and 10, 1938.

This is what the early days of a civil war look like. If we give power to the political party that is paying for the rioting taking place in our major cities this summer, then we truly will deserve all the pain and suffering that will follow.

Let’s don’t do that, ok?

MSNBC Producer Calls TV News Operations a “Cancer”

FACT CHECK: She’s right. – Ariana Pekary, a producer at the evil, Goebbels-style fake news operation MSNBC who resigned last month, has written a parting letter in which she classifies MSNBC and other TV news operations as “a cancer” on our country.

It’s pretty hard to argue with that.

The letter, posted on her blog, accuses the network’s producers of exactly what you’d expect – choosing stories and panel guests not based on their newsworthiness but on how they might help with the ratings:

It’s possible that I’m more sensitive to the editorial process due to my background in public radio, where no decision I ever witnessed was predicated on how a topic or guest would “rate.” The longer I was at MSNBC, the more I saw such choices — it’s practically baked in to the editorial process – and those decisions affect news content every day. Likewise, it’s taboo to discuss how the ratings scheme distorts content, or it’s simply taken for granted, because everyone in the commercial broadcast news industry is doing the exact same thing.

But behind closed doors, industry leaders will admit the damage that’s being done.

“We are a cancer and there is no cure,” a successful and insightful TV veteran said to me. “But if you could find a cure, it would change the world.”

As it is, this cancer stokes national division, even in the middle of a civil rights crisis. The model blocks diversity of thought and content because the networks have incentive to amplify fringe voices and events, at the expense of others… all because it pumps up the ratings.

This cancer risks human lives, even in the middle of a pandemic. The primary focus quickly became what Donald Trump was doing (poorly) to address the crisis, rather than the science itself. As new details have become available about antibodies, a vaccine, or how COVID actually spreads, producers still want to focus on the politics. Important facts or studies get buried.

This cancer risks our democracy, even in the middle of a presidential election. Any discussion about the election usually focuses on Donald Trump, not Joe Biden, a repeat offense from 2016 (Trump smothers out all other coverage). Also important is to ensure citizens can vote by mail this year, but I’ve watched that topic get ignored or “killed” numerous times.

[End]

Again, hard to argue with any of that.

She goes on to add that, “I’ve even heard producers deny their role as journalists. A very capable senior producer once said: ‘Our viewers don’t really consider us the news. They come to us for comfort.'”

Naturally, being a raging leftist herself, Ms. Pekary lacks the personal introspection to go even further and admit the obvious fact that the producers also choose stories and guests based on political bias, both their own and that of their guests. That dynamic is obvious, not just at MSNBC, but at all TV news operations at the national level. It is just as much of a cancer on our society, as is the refusal of leftists like Ms. Pekary to even acknowledge that it exists.

But hey, at least she managed to get half of the problem right, which is far more than any of her colleagues manage to do.

That is all.

Bombshell: Devin Nunes Reveals a Key Point About Obamagate

As is his custom as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, do-nothing South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham dribbled out some new information about ObamaGate yesterday, information that amounts to far too little, far too late for it to become any real benefit to the republic’s ultimate survival. Why Sen. Graham has waited this long to release this particular tranche of documents is anyone’s guess – there are possible explanations, both innocent and not-so-innocent.

Regardless, the release is worth noting because the declassified FBI records clearly establish the fact that the FBI and band of Mueller thugs knew full well that the Steele Dossier was a fraud very early on, but continued to use it to defraud the FISA court on multiple occasions.

Here’s the released documents:

That release led the guest host of Sean Hannity’s Tick-Tock hour on Fox News last night, Tammy Bruce, to bring on journalist John Solomon and intrepid Congressman Devin Nunes to discuss the importance of these documents. While Solomon and Bruce skirt around the central issue, Nunes, as is his habit, keeps his eye squarely on the ball that really matters.

Here’s a clip, followed by a transcript of Cong. Nunes’s comments:

Transcript – Watch and listen as Bruce interrupts Nunes the moment he starts to point out the most crucial point in all of this – Nunes starts at about the 1:50 mark):

Nunes: Well, I think to correct [John Solomon’s call for a Durham “report”], uh, I’m not too interested in a Durham “report.” I would like to know everything for the four-plus years that went on, including even the Mueller investigation, but really what we want is, we want indictments. 

We’ve made 14 criminal referrals, we have another investigation that is ongoing. I would say the takeaway I have tonight – John hit it on the head with those 3 important topics – but also, we have suspected for a very long time that Steele had only 2 Russians [sources]. But, we believe they were actually kind of “real” Russians, but he didn’t really know them.

And the question is, how was it that Steele supposedly “found” these Russians and was able to use them? We’ve asked the FBI and the CIA about these Russians – I’ve said for a long time we’re interested in 2 Russians – and this won’t surprise you: They have yet to allow us access to these 2 Russians, who we know [interrupted by Bruce so you can barely hear this] are now living in the United States.

[End]

Now, Ms. Bruce might have interrupted Nunes at that crucial moment simply because she was running up against a commercial break. Or maybe, just maybe, she had a producer screaming in her ear to make Nunes stop because he was getting into an area that the CIA does not want to have discussed on national television.

Think about this: The 2 Russian sources for the Steele Dossier are now living in the United States of America? How, pray tell, would that happen, other than under the auspices of some agency or another of the federal government? Why would the CIA, the DOJ and/or the FBI want to be keeping these 2 specific Russians safely under wraps?

Two possible explanations come to mind: a) Because these 2 Russians are spilling their guts to Mr. Durham and his investigators, or b) because the CIA under John Brennan was intimately involved in Spygate/Obamagate and the initial compiling of that Steele Dossier on behalf of the Clinton Campaign and the DNC.

On that latter possibility, it’s fair to remember that Steele himself is a British spy who was based in London at the time he was compiling that fake dossier, and that current CIA Director Gina Haspel happened to be the head of the CIA’s London office during that same time.

Oh.

We should also remember this key fact: Nunes knows where all of these bodies are buried. Remember, he was the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee during 2017-18, and he has already seen all of these documents long ago. He is not just speculating for fun in this TV appearance – he knows how Steel was linked up with those 2 Russians and he knows how and why they are currently living in the United States.

He is clearly sending a message here. Pray that he has strong security around him.

That is all.

The Utter Disgrace That is Fox News

I finally had to give up watching The Five last week, because I just couldn’t take another day of Juan Williams uttering fabricated nonsense and having none of the other four hosts do a damn thing to correct the record. It’s obvious management at Fox has told the others that it is hands-off time on Juan in the new age of Black Lives Matter TV.

Just as obvious is that every host on the cable news channel is required to cite the hysterically inaccurate Fox New Polls as of they are the gospel handed down on stone tablets from atop the mountain. When the otherwise sensible Maria Bartiromo is parroting the latest findings at least twice every day on Mornings With Maria, you know the talking points and segments are being forced upon her.

Sunday, things got even worse. Fox Business Analyst Charlie Gasparino appeared on the channel and made a completely fabricated report contending that President Trump is thinking about pulling out of the campaign due to bad polling numbers. From a report at The Hill:

“It’s too early, but if the polls continue to worsen, you can see a scenario where he drops out,” a GOP operative who asked to remain anonymous told Fox News.

Gasparino also reported that one “major player” within the Republican Party described “Trump’s current psyche as ‘fragile.'”

Gasparino said he’s “not convinced yet” that Trump will bow out. He noted that Biden has been largely pushed off the campaign trail by the coronavirus.

[End]

This is not only utterly and completely absurd and without any foundation whatsoever, it is patently irresponsible. Even worse, we saw this same sort of despicably false “reporting” from hacks on CNN and MSNBC about this time during the 2016 election cycle. It’s as if Fox News now has its hack “reporters” coordinating daily talking points and narratives with the Democrats and CNN.

Folks, President Trump is not only not going to withdraw from this race, he is going to win it, just as he has won every other difficult challenge during the course of his life. Furthermore, his polling is not all that bad right now. Anyone who looks into the internals in these polls knows that they are almost uniformly oversampling Democrat voters and under-sampling Republicans.

Here’s a great example: A Susquehanna poll released on Monday gives Biden a 5-point lead over Trump in Pennsylvania. Even if you accept that result, Trump could turn that number around in a week. But that number is completely fabricated, given that the pollster over-samples college-educated voters in the state by at least 20%.

Also on Monday, we had a Trafalgar Group poll of the key state of Wisconsin showing Trump with a one point lead in that state. Note that Trafalgar was one of only two pollsters in 2016 that correctly called the race for Trump instead of Clinton. Note also that Trafalgar released a poll of Michigan last week showing Trump ahead in that crucial state as well.

We can cherry pick polls all day long, but that is an exercise in futility given that, with a few notable exceptions, the sector as a whole is absolute gutter trash at this point, just like Fox and the rest of the national news media.  There was a time when Fox News could at least be relied upon as a source of accurate factual content, but with hacks like Gasparino polluting its airwaves, and hosts being forced to pretend that its notoriously inaccurate polling represents a “news” story, that now has obviously gone by the wayside.

Call it the pernicious influence of Paul Ryan, call it whatever you want, but Fox News is not a “news” channel anymore, and that’s a shame.

That is all.

Riots: Democrats/Corrupt News Media Mount Their Most Despicable Hoax Narrative Yet

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

Those of you who pay attention no doubt noticed that the narrative being pushed about the national riots shifted early Saturday morning from “these are just peaceful people who need to be heard,” to “all of this violence is being pushed by white nationalists.” Obviously a memo went out from the DNC or Soros headquarters telling every shameless leftist in the country to push this latest hoax.

That despicable, utterly false narrative was pushed all over cable news, including Fox; it was pushed by depraved Democrat members of congress; it was pushed by feckless Minnesota Governor Tim Walz; it was pushed by Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey and pretty much every leftist talking head on television. It was pushed despite the lack of a shred of evidence to support it; it was pushed despite the statement by U.S. Attorney General William Barr making it clear that DOJ has intelligence indicating that the riots have been organized by Antifa; and it continued to be pushed well into the night despite a flood of video proof of the involvement of not only Antifa, but Black Lives Matter agitators as well.

It is the most despicable hoax narrative these depraved and despicable people have ever mounted, more despicable even than the Russia hoax and the Impeachment hoax.

You don’t have to believe me about this: All you have to believe is your own lyin’ eyes. Let’s go to the videotape.

See if you can spot the “white supremacists” in this one from Houston:

What about all these “white supremacists” in Nashville?

Don’t see them? Well, see if you can find the “white supremacists” in this cut from Seattle:

Surely they must be there, right? I mean, Maxine Waters and Brian Stelter keep saying they are.

Ok, well, maybe the videos just move too fast for us. See if you can spot the “white supremacists” in this still shot of a gang that nearly beat a Dallas store owner to death on the street overnight:

Can’t see them? Well, here’s a video of the same savage incident. Surely they must be in there somewhere:

Maybe all the “white supremacists” were working in Cleveland. See if you can spot them in this gang that assaulted firemen who were trying to put out fires there:

No? Nothing? Ok, well, maybe all the “white supremacists” decided to go right to the source and attack the White House. Let’s take a look:

Man, these “white supremacists” sure are good at disguising themselves, aren’t they? But you know they’re in there somewhere because Jake Tapper and Rachel Maddow and Donna Brazile surely wouldn’t lie, would they?

Hey, here’s a suspicious looking white guy. But – oops – he’s clearly Antifa:

I could go on and on an on with this because there are literally thousands of clips just like these running all over Twitter and other social media platforms today.

The people pushing this “white supremacist” narrative appear to be actively attempting to stoke a race war in our country for crass, shameful partisan political reasons. It is no accident that every city in which these riots are taking place are run by Democrat political machines. It is no accident that the two groups fomenting these riots – Antifa and BLM – were created by the Democrat Party and funded by Democrat Party affiliate groups and front groups for George Soros.

America’s institutions and freedoms have been under constant assault from the Democrat Party for many decades now, really since that Party was created. Now, the Democrat Party has taken that war against America to the streets of our major cities.

This is unconscionable to civilized human beings. But hey, these are Democrats we’re talking about here. After yesterday, how can you be sure they have a conscience?

Oh, hey: Maybe these are the “white supremacists” we keep hearing about:

Watch: Neil Cavuto Gets the Vapors on News Trump is Taking Hydroxychloroquine

The Evening Campaign Update

I laughed out loud while watching President Donald Trump inform the news media in a very offhand manner today that he has been taking hydroxychloroquine – in conjunction with azithromycin and zinc – for “a week and a half” during a press availability at the White House today. You could literally feel the reporters in the room gasp in unison and almost go out of their minds at the notion that the President of the United States is using this safe, effective, cheap and plentiful drug as a prophylaxis against the Wuhan virus. He just tossed it out there like he was ordering dinner – it was a truly glorious moment.

Here’s a clip:

No corrupt journalist on any network went crazier, though, than drama queen Neil Cavuto, who happened to be on the air when the President was toying with the White House press corps like my cat Max toys with lizards every day. After warning his viewers in a shaky voice reminiscent of Christine Blasey Ford’s mimicking of a teenage valley girl during her smear of Brett Kavanaugh that the drug “will kill you” if you have certain underlying conditions, Cavuto then went on to interview several people. One of them – Fox medical contributor Dr. Janette Nesheiwat, correctly informed him and his viewers that the drug can be “lifesaving” for certain patients who do not have those underlying conditions.

Watch Cavuto’s face fall and then try to cut her off as she delivers the news he most certainly did not want to hear:

This is crap that belongs on CNN, but it airs on Fox News every day at 3:00 CT. Maddening.

Why Senator Richard Burr May be in Deep Doo-doo

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

Congress’s seamy underbelly floats up to the surface. – On his Fox News show last night, host Tucker Carlson lambasted Senator Richard Burr – chairman of the corrupt Senate Intelligence Committee – and demanded his resignation for off-loading millions of dollars in stock investments immediately after learning of the threat of the coronavirus.

Here’s a clip, followed by a transcript:

Transcript:

You may have seen the news reports this afternoon that the Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee sold more than a million dollars in stock in mid-February after learning how devastating the Chinese coronavirus could be. He had inside information about what could happen to our country – which is now happening – but he didn’t warn the public. He didn’t give a prime-time address. He didn’t go on television to sound the alarm.

He didn’t even disavow  the op/ed he’d written just 10 days before, claiming that America was “better prepared than ever for coronavirus.” He didn’t do any of those things. Instead, what did he do? He dumped his shares in hotel stocks so he wouldn’t lose money, and then he stayed silent.

Now, maybe there’s an honest explanation for what he did; if there is, he should share it with the rest of us immediately. Otherwise, he must resign from the Senate and face prosecution for insider trading. There is no greater moral crime than betraying your country in a time of crisis, and that appears to be what happened.

[End]

Now, that’s all great: I have long been a critic of Burr, a useless RINO who has used his chairmanship of the Senate Intel Committee to literally cover up crimes committed against the Trump Campaign and Administration by the Obama-era coup cabal within the DOJ and the Intelligence Community. If he did engage in insider trading then he should resign and be prosecuted.

But let’s be honest here: If you think Burr is the only member of congress who has engaged in this kind of action over the past couple of months, you live in a fairy tale world.

The New York Times ran a report yesterday documenting similar actions by several other senators, including Kelly Loeffler (R-GA), Jim Inhofe (R-OK) and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA). That report is based on financial disclosure statements that members of congress must periodically file. Members are regularly tardy in filing these disclosures, and you can bet the shrinking balance in your 401(k) that we will soon discover that many more members did the same thing.

Some members, when they assume office, shield themselves from this kind of accusation by placing such investments in blind trusts, giving them the plausible deniability of saying that they take no active part in managing their investments. Inhofe, Feinstein and Loeffler all claim that is the case with their investments.

Interestingly, no one from Sen. Burr’s office has made a similar claim at this point. Here’s the statement his spokesperson put out yesterday evening:

“His message has always been, and continues to be, that we must be prepared to protect American lives in the event of a pandemic or bio-attack,” Caitlin Carroll, a spokeswoman for Mr. Burr, said in a statement. “Since early February, whether in constituent meetings or open hearings, he has worked to educate the public about the tools and resources our government has to confront the spread of coronavirus.”

Burr himself took to Twitter to issue a series of tweets about an NPR report covering a speech he made to a group of constituents in February, warning them of the potential impacts of coronavirus on the U.S. economy. Nowhere in those tweets does he attempt to defend his stock divestments.

If Burr does play an active role in managing his own trading, then this is a real problem for him, and helps to explain why Carlson went after him last night, but gave the others a pass.

That is all.

Watch: Stanford Med School Spokesman Announces Peer-Reviewed China Virus Cure [Updated]

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

Why is this not bigger news? – Gregory Rigano, an advisor to the Stanford School of Medicine, told Tucker Carlson on Fox New last night that French scientists have released a peer-reviewed study indicating that a very cheap anti-Malaria drug called chloroquine produced a 100% cure to the Chinese coronavirus in a test involving 40 patients.

Watch this clip, followed by a transcript:

Carlson: Fortunately there is some good news to report on that front tonight. Early evidence suggests that chloroquine, a cheap anti-Malaria drug, may be effective in treating coronavirus. Gregory Rigano is an advisor to the Stanford School of Medicine, and he joins us tonight. Thanks so much for coming on. So, tell us what this is and why you think it’s promising.

Rigano: The President has the authority to authorize the use of hydroxy chloroquine against the coronavirus immediately. He has cut more red tape at the FDA than any President in history. For example, in 2017, a new drug was approved for Muscular Dystrophy for a clinical trial that enrolled less than 15 patients and was generally uncontrolled in an open setting.

Hydroxy chloroquine has been on the market for over 50 years with a quality safety profile. I’m here to report that, as of this morning, a well-controlled, peer-reviewed study carried out by the most imminent infectious disease specialist in the world, Didier Raoult, PhD, out of the South of France, in which he enrolled 40 patients in a well-controlled, peer-reviewed study that showed a 100% cure rate against coronavirus. 

The study was released this morning on my Twitter account, @RiganoESQ, as well as our most recent website, COVIDTrial.io. The study was recently accepted into the International Journal of anti-microbial agents.

Carlson: Obviously, I only know what you’re telling me. But I do know that it’s very unusual for a study of anything to produce results of 100%. That’s remarkable, isn’t it? Or am I missing something?

Rigano: That is remarkable. In fact, to be able to cure a virus was said to be mathematically impossible, and the first company that did it was a small biotech called Pharmacet that was acquired by Gilead Sciences. They cured Hepatitis C. What we’re here to announce is the second cure to a virus of all time.

Carlson: Well, that’s remarkable. Of course, it’s our job to be skeptical of all and any claims; however, I very much want to believe this and I think we very much need immediately to run it down. The administration needs to find out if this is true. If the, if it is, that’s the biggest news of this moment. So, I’m so grateful that you announced that on this show, and I hope we are hearing a lot about it very soon.

[End]

Rigano’s statement speaks for itself. As mentioned above, the study results can be found at this link.

Interestingly, as I was typing this up, Dr. Mark Seigel appeared on Fox Business with Stuart Varney and noted that other clinical trials taking place in South Korea and other Asian countries are producing similar results to Dr. Raoult’s work.

Folks, if this turns out to be a real, true cure, you can count on President Donald Trump to cut through all the FDA bureaucratic job-preservation bullshit and make certification for the use of this drug quickly available to the American medical community, and use federal resources to work to ensure it is available in the needed quantities. Be happy he’s your President, because any Democrat would fart around with it based on the advice coming from his experts for a year before it would come available.

Pray this is real – it could save literally millions of lives.

UPDATE: The UK Daily Express carried a report yesterday on the South Korea tests using chloroquine:

Published on March 13 this year, the study claims to examine guidelines issued by China and South Korea on the effectiveness of chloroquine as an antiviral remedy.

Chloroquine is a medicine used to prevent and treat malaria in those parts of the world where the mosquito-carried disease is a danger to life.

Mr Musk said he received the drug when he suffered from malaria.

He tweeted: “Yes, I received chloroquine via central line through my chest & both arms.

“Had near fatal case of falciparum. Would’ve died for sure if not for chloroquine.

“Doesn’t mean it works for C19, but maybe better than nothing.”

The drug has been in use around the globe since 1945.

A summary of the study reads: “Recent guidelines from South Korea and China report that chloroquine is an effective antiviral therapeutic treatment against Coronavirus Disease 2019.

Use of chloroquine (tablets) is showing favourable outcomes in humans infected with Coronavirus including faster time to recovery and shorter hospital stay.

Maybe worth considering chloroquine for C19

Elon Musk on Twitter

“US CDC research shows that chloroquine also has strong potential as a prophylactic (preventative) measure against coronavirus in the lab, while we wait for a vaccine to be developed.”

Democrat Panic: Brazile tells McDaniel to “Go to hell!”

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

Fox News really needs to reconsider who it puts on its air. – Illustrating the state of abject panic among the Democrat Party poobahs, former DNC Chair and current Fox News paid contributor Donna Brazile told current RNC Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel to “go to hell” live on air this morning:

After telling McDaniel to “stay the hell out of our race!” repeatedly, Brazile then outright told the devout Mormon to “go to hell” not once, but twice. Brazile then resorted to the despicably tiresome canard that any criticism of the DNC process by non-Democrats amounts to the use of “Russian talkin’ points!” because of course she did.

*sigh*

Brazile’s unhinged outburst at McDaniel only serves to further demonstrate the state of outright panic the leaders of the Democrat Party find themselves today, as voters go to the polls in the crucial Super Tuesday primary contests. With 40% of the total convention delegates up for grabs in 14 states, Democrat system riggers like Brazile are sitting on pins and needles in anticipation of polls closing this evening.

Regarding Brazile’s absurd claims that nobody in the Democrat Party is attempting to rig things against Bernie Sanders: Remember that Brazile played a significant role in rigging the process against The Commie in 2016, even to the point of feeding debate questions to the Pantsuit Princess in advance. She is a longtime tool of the Clintons whose word cannot be trusted in any way, shape or form.

For Fox News management, today’s outburst by Brazile should create internal discussions over whether or not to continue with her contributor deal. There is no question whatsoever that any Republican who engaged in the use of similarly aggressive language towards any Democrat would be immediately banned by CNN or MSNBC.

There is no reason why Fox News should hold itself and its contributors to lower standards than those two slipshod outfits.

P.S.: Just last Thursday, Sean Hannity gave Brazile a full hour on his “tick-tock” radio show to expound on what a wonderful Christian she claims to be. If you’re a real Christian, the words “go to hell” should never be in your heart or come out of your mouth towards anyone.

What a day.

What in the Hell is Going on at Fox News?

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

Tired of all this WINNING yet? Yeah, neither am I. – Every major U.S. stock market index closed at record highs yet again on Monday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average now sitting more than 10,000 points higher than it sat on the day Donald Trump was elected to the presidency back on that blessed day in November, 2016:

The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed 100.51 points higher, or 0.4% at 28,235.89. The S&P 500 gained 0.7% to end the day at 3,191.45 while the Nasdaq Composite jumped 0.9% to 8,814.23.

So naturally, the Democrat politicians who hate ordinary Americans who work hard all their lives and save for their retirements are this very week planning to vote to impeach the President whose policies made this all possible. You could never make these people up. Not in a million years.

 

Rare truth found on Twitter:

Image

What in the hell is going on at Fox News? – On Monday, Fox News came out with yet another poll whose findings are, to say the least, difficult to explain. The poll, conducted by Braun Research out of Princeton, NJ, finds that voters favor the impeachment and removal of President Donald Trump by a margin of 50% to 46%. The poll’s sample of “1000 registered voters” was conducted from December 8 through December 11, basically a week ago.

Four other current polls, by Qunnipiac, CNN, NPR/PBS/Marist and USA Today/Suffolk – all notoriously slanted in favor of Democrats – all find that equation reversed, with voters opposing impeachment and removal by margins ranging from 3% to 6%. Other than NPR/PBS/Marist, all were conducted more recently than the Fox News poll, which may help to explain things. Why Fox waited five days after its poll was completed before reporting on it is a mystery.

But here’s the deal: This conduct and reporting of clear outlier polls by Fox News has now become a very clear and consistent pattern. Coincidentally or not, that pattern began to emerge in 2018 right around the time that former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan was named to a seat on Fox’s board of directors. Probably just a coincidence, but damn, that was also around the time we began to see a decidedly anti-Trump slant emerge on Fox’s daytime “news” programs outside of the Shep Smith hour, which had always been a leftist love-fest.

Coincidence or not, it’s been an interesting pattern to observe. True, Fox did part ways with the insipid Mr. Smith recently, but nobody believes that was due to any concern within management about Smith’s leftist slant, which had been a consistent feature of the channel’s programming throughout the 21st century. But the anti-Trump bias across the remainder of the channel’s daytime programming remains ingrained, and growing.

Back to this latest poll, its’ sample breakdown is very odd, consisting of 46% Democrats, 41% Republicans and just 12% independents. Why Braun would choose to over-sample both Ds and Rs so significantly is hard to explain, since every estimate with any validity says that well over 30% of the public identifies as independents. But that breakdown has to be intentional.

Braun provides no information about where the sample came from geographically within the United States, but there is a big, big difference between a “Republican” living in Rhode Island or some other coastal state and a “Republican” living in Oklahoma or Louisiana or anywhere else out here in Flyover Country. If the poll’s GOP sample consisted mainly of “Republicans” like Mitt Romney or Arnold Schwarzenegger or William Weld or John Kasich, then the poll’s outlier result is entirely explainable.

Regardless, Fox’s on-air talent spent the entire day reporting the results of this clear outlier poll as if it were a real news story, which brings us to the main problem with news outlet-sponsored polls: They are conducted not to accurately gauge real voter attitudes, but to create “news” stories. Fox got to spend all day on Monday reporting the “news” that its own poll shows more voters than not favoring the removal of a duly-elected President from office. That no doubt boosted the channel’s ratings a bit and may have even helped with their street cred among their corrupt media peers.

Never mind that the poll’s results stick out like a sore thumb among those of every other poll released in the last week, Fox’s objective related to the poll – filling a significant amount of air time with a contrarian result – was achieved.

That’s not really “news” as most Americans would define it, but that is what Fox News has now become. The only question remaining for viewers to ask is “Why?”. Unfortunately, the answer to that question is not clear.

Yet.

Mollie Hemingway Speaks the Name that Shall not be Spoken on Fox News

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

It was a dirty job, but someone needed to do it. – All it took was a set of brass balls, which of course means that none of the male anchors or contributors on Fox or any other cable TV channel would ever dream of doing it. But hey, offsetting the cowardly acts of her male counterparts is why we have the great Mollie Hemingway around in the first place.

Since a long-term, ultimately fatal illness removed Charles Krauthamer from the Fox Report’s nightly panel discussions, Hemingway has become the real prevailing star of that show, although Bret Baier doesn’t invite her on often enough. When she does appear there, Mollie regularly lays the rhetorical wood to arrogant NeverTrump jerk weeds like Stephen Hayes and Jonah Goldberg, or some female DC Swamp dweller like the insufferable A.B. Stoddard.

Hemingway is a true treasure: Never at a loss for words, always with something real and useful to offer, and never afraid to speak truth to power on any topic.

Sunday morning, she appeared on Fox’s Media Buzz program, hosted by Howie Kurtz, on a panel that included the despicable Clinton operative Philip Reines. Although everyone at Fox News, employees and contributors alike, have been ordered by the corrupt clowns who run the channel now to never, never, never, ever mention the name of the fake whistleblower – Eric Sciaramella – Hemingway, when the subject was brought up by Kurtz, essentially risked her gig by defying the male cowards and doing exactly that.

Here’s the clip – let us all bask in its awesomeness:

 

The look on Reines’s face is utterly priceless, and the dishonest response by Kurtz – who is normally a pretty solid guy – pretending to not know whether Ciaramella is in fact the seditious leaker is just cowardly and disgusting.

Hemingway is obviously as sick of the tiresome, false pretense of not knowing the fake whistleblower’s real identity as we all are, and she’s determined to not be a part of it. She is that rarity in today’s national news media – a journalist with actual principles and courage.

Given the cowardly and corrupt nature of the current management at Fox News, her effort to try to force Fox to end the absurd farce could well end up costing her her contributor status there. At the very least, it is likely to make Baier less willing to keep inviting her to participate in his panels. That would be a shame for the viewing public, but everyone should be grateful to Ms. Hemingway for having the courage of her convictions and refusing to pretend not to know how to pronounce the word “Ciaramella.”

God bless her.

That is all.

Italian Prime Minister Confirms Spygate Meetings With William Barr and John Durham

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

Katherine Herridge reported at mid-day on Wednesday that Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte testified under oath that he had approved meetings between Italian Intelligence agents and U.S. Attorney General William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham. 

Here is a clip of Herridge’s report (transcript follows below):

 

For those of you who still like to read stuff, here is the transcript:

Host Harris Faulkner: U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation into the origins of the Russia probe has now expanded based on information uncovered in Rome. And we are getting new information about that visit by Attorney General William Barr. Katherine Herridge has the latest.

Katherine Herridge: Our correspondent Amy Kellogg, who is based in Italy has confirmed that in the last few the Italian prime minister has testified to parliament that he did permit the meeting with the attorney General with Italian Intelligence on the subject of the Russia investigation, and he described this move as “the correct decision, and that everything was arranged through proper diplomatic channels.”

The other piece of information we are getting from Italy is that these meetings occurred August 15 and September 27 in Rome.  And that dovetails with some new information we have had here at Fox News, which is that during one of these trips, William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham gathered new evidence and that it was on that basis that they expanded the investigation into the origins of the FBI’s 2016 “Russia Collusion” case.

My contacts are report that Durham is “very interested to question” the former Director of National Intelligence, that’s the nation’s top spy chief, James Clapper, as well as the former CIA Director, John Brennan, who recently dismissed the idea.

[Clip of a very nervous Brennan being interviewed on MSNBC on Oct. 3 here]

The reason this matters, Harris, is that it shows that the Durham investigation is truly global in nature, and it dovetails with our reporting that these trips to Rome have been very consequential for that investigation. This has now been confirmed by the Italian Prime Minister under oath with parliamentary testimony.

This report by Herridge, one of the few remaining real journalists still working in our otherwise fake national news media today, confirms previous rumors and reporting that Barr and Durham decided to expand their Spygate investigation based on information they’ve obtained from multiple overseas trips to Italy, Australia, London and Ukraine.

It also helps to explain why the leaders of the Coup Cabal, including Clapper and Brennan, have been nervously planting stories with eagerly-cooperating fake news outlets like the New York Times, CNN and Politico over the past several days.

The more nervous these treasonous skunks are, the better for America.

Why Did William Barr Meet with Rupert Murdoch?

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This is going to be a fun, fun week. – Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe announced over the weekend that his group is going to be releasing a new series of confidential recording this week. The target of this project?

CNN. Check this out:

This week, a CNN insider will blow the whistle and through Project Veritas will release dozens of recordings made of officials at the highest levels of CNN, revealing a political agenda, bias and misconduct hidden from public view.

This series of tapes — which we think will be the biggest story of the year for Project Veritas — blends two extraordinary series of events; a brave insider secretly recording at work and a hard-hitting piece of hidden camera muckraking into one of the supposed “most trusted names in news.”

Oh, my. Somewhere, Brian Stelter is huddled in a broom closet, furiously consuming a sack of jelly donuts. What fun!

Are there really any coincidences in the DC Swamp?  –  Speaking of cable news outlets, here’s something to think about where Fox News is concerned: Last Thursday, the fake news media was filled with reports about Attorney General William Barr holding a meeting with Rupert Murdoch, Chairman of the Board for Fox News, the previous evening. Democrats were so alarmed about the meeting that they were all over CNN and MSNBC that day demanding a congressional investigation, even though there was no publicly-known reason for them to have any concern.

Of course, the Democrats have been in a bit of a frenzy to tarnish Barr’s reputation as he proceeds with his investigation into the origins of the coordinated DOJ/FBI/CIA/media efforts to deny Trump the presidency in 2016 and later to stage a coup d’etat to remove him from office, efforts that continue to this day. But the concern over this simple meeting seemed bizarrely overwrought, even in the context of that character assassination campaign, at least until Friday afternoon at 3:59 ET, when Shep Smith announced his “resignation” from his amazingly undeserved position at the cable news channel.

Remember that a big part of the Barr/John Durham investigation focuses on the massive leaking and cozy relationships with certain media members by the coup plotters within the government. It is also very important to remember that DOJ IG Michael Horowitz’s long-overdue FISA abuse report supposedly will be released late this week, and Horowitz has also been heavily-focused on the leaking issue.

The three things could be totally unconnected, but you can’t help wondering if Barr met with Murdoch to let him know what his investigation has discovered related to some of Fox’s employees and contributors, including some of its on-air “talent,” and their relationships with the Deep State coup participants. Certainly, no one among Fox’s on-air anchors has spent more time parroting the talking points of the Deep State more fervently over the past few years than Shep Smith has.

Again, it could all be just a big coincidence, and maybe Mr. Smith just got tired of being the cable channel’s poster child for the DC Swamp. Or maybe he got canned as a result of his on-air feud with the highly-rated Tucker Carlson. But I’ve never been much of a believer in coincidences.

Speaking of that on-air feud between Smith and Carlson, highly-paid Fox contributor Andrew Napolitano was at the center of all of that. As reported on September 25 by Vanity Fair:

The schism was evident this week as a feud erupted between afternoon anchor Shepard Smith and prime-time host Tucker Carlson. It started Tuesday when Fox legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano told Smith on-air that Trump committed a “crime” by pressuring Ukraine’s president to get dirt on Biden. That night, Carlson brought on former Trump lawyer Joe diGenova, who called Napolitano a “fool” for claiming Trump broke the law. Yesterday, Smith lashed back, calling Carlson “repugnant” for not defending Napolitano on air.

Of course, Vanity Fair omits the fact that “former Trump lawyer Joe diGenova” is also a former U.S. Attorney, and a very highly-regarded one. Because of course that’s what they did – that’s what the fake news media does. But I digress.

The thing to remember about Napolitano is that he had a very, very noticeable on-air transformation from being a Trump supporter one day to changing his on-air “legal analyses” into consistent anti-Trump rants the next. This transformation took place suddenly, shortly before the President publicly announced the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to become his second Supreme Court appointment. It is well-known that Napolitano actively lobbied the President for a Supreme Court nomination.

Here is what we also know without any doubt whatsoever: A large number of “journalists” and cable TV personalities are on the payroll of our intelligence agencies, and have been for more than half a century now. The convergence of all of these events could be mere coincidence, but it is certainly valid to wonder if Barr met with Murdoch as a courtesy call to give the media mogul a head’s up on which of his employees might be about to become implicated in some very major investigations.

The hyper-panicked reaction by the Democrats to what could well have been just a dinner between two old acquaintances indicates they’re a lot more worried about it than any reasonable person would be.

The Only Truly Appropriate Reaction to Shep Smith’s Resignation

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

Goodbye, Sheppie, we hardly knew ye.  –  Here is the only truly appropriate reaction to the news that the slimy Shep Smith has left Fox News:

In all seriousness, does anyone really care that our TV screens will no longer be graced by this shrill, overwrought hack? In recent years, Smith’s only role at Fox News was to come on air and cause half the cable channel’s regular viewers to tune into OANN. The channel attempted to elevate his role a few years ago by making him the “anchor” for all breaking news stories, but that seemed to last about 6 months before the role mysteriously disappeared.

The truth is that the clown has carried on an uninterrupted 5-year audition for a job at CNN or MSNBC, using Fox’s airwaves as his platform. Once his non-compete agreement with Fox has run its course – the time frame is not clear from published reports on the matter – we can expect him to come out with a highly-emotional book whose drama queen prose will resemble his frequent on-air rants, followed by the announcement of his new job “anchoring” some talking head show on one of those Democrat Party propaganda channels.

He’d fit right in with CNN’s prime-time lineup, joining Fredo, Cooper Anderson and that other guy in haranguing travelers across the nation’s airport lobbies with their leftwing nonsense. It’s his destiny, in fact.

Speaking of Fox News, the New York Post puts the lie to that ridiculous impeachment poll that cable channel spent the last several days pushing. That poll, conducted by Braun Research, claimed to have found that fully 51% of the public now favors “impeachment and removal” of President Donald Trump. But, as the Post points out, that’s mainly an artifact of an absurdly-biased polling sample:

Princeton, New Jersey, pollster Braun Research, which conducted the survey, noted 48% of its respondents were Democrats. But the actual breakdown of party-affiliation is 31% Democrat, 29% Republican and 38% independent, according to Gallup.

A poll weighted for party affiliation would have concluded that 44.9% favored impeachment and 44.4% opposed it, a Post analysis has concluded.

Oh. The more you know…

Thus, the President was correct about the Fox poll and Fox News in general when he responded to it on Twitter:

Yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyep.

Fox News Leads the Parade of Garbage Impeachment Polls

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

These impeachment polls are very mysterious and confusing. Until you look at the details, that is.  –  The increasingly-trending-left Fox News came out with a “bombshell” new poll on impeachment Wednesday which Bret Baier solemnly told us shows that 51% of those polled favor both impeachment and removal from office. Baier further said that is an increase of 9% over an earlier poll taken before any of this nonsense about Ukraine broke. Which basically means that every leftist nitwit in the country has always wanted him impeached and removed, which should surprise no one.

This seems pretty strange since the President’s public approval rating in this poll and basically every other poll is essentially the same as it was in August. So, I decided to go take a look into the bowels of the results and guess what I discovered? Fully 48% of this poll’s sample identify as Democrats. This despite the fact that recent polling by Gallup and other organizations show that less than 30% of the U.S. population now self-identifies that way. 40% were Republicans, despite recent polling by Gallup and others showing that less than 30 of the actual population self-identifies that way. That leaves just 12% of this sample taken from the vast middle of the country that identifies with neither party.

This poll is trash. Garbage. A fake poll taken simply to create a fake news story for Bret Baier to parrot. Fox News is almost all the way achieving its goal of becoming CNN.

Ok, so, let’s go on to the poll from The Wall Street Journal/NBC released on Tuesday. This poll claims to find that 43% of the public favor “supporting [Trump’s] removal based on what they know today,” according to the linked NBC article. Yet, when you go take a look at the details of the findings, here is what you actually discover: When asked whether there is “enough evidence to impeach Donald Trump and remove him from office now,” just 24% in the poll’s sample say “yes.”

TWENTY-FOUR PERCENT.

Another 31% are in favor of holding “an impeachment inquiry to determine of there is enough evidence” to remove the President from office, because Americans just love their investigations. Fine.

But look at how absurdly NBC has misrepresented this poll’s actual findings to the public, simply to create a “news” story that might attract viewers and clicks to its website. It’s a disgrace.

One big difference in this poll as compared to the Fox poll is that it has a more reasonable partisan breakdown of 30% Democrat and 25% Republican, with the rest of the sample basically independents.

These are just two of the most recent of dozens of polls taken on the impeachment and removal questions, and when you look closely at the entire group of them, what you find is that this Democrat/Media coordinated anti-Trump frenzy over the innocuous Ukraine phone call has moved public opinion towards removal from office by maybe 2 or 3 percentage points.

Meanwhile, the President’s public approval rating as measured by the RealClearPolitics average of polls sits at 43.6% approval, slightly above his average for all of 2019.

This is not remotely what the Democrats and their media toadies were hoping to achieve here. Not at all.

They’re gonna need a bigger hoax.

Anger Over Impeachment is Best Directed at the Fake News Media

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

Fake news, fake news everywhere. – The newsfakers at the Associated Press have a report out this morning pushing the claim that Attorney General William Barr was “surprised and angry” when he found out that President Trump had mentioned him on his July call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelinsky.

The source for the AP’s fake report? A ” a person familiar with Barr’s thinking,” who “was not authorized to speak about the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.” In other words, there are two possibilities here: 1) an Obama loyalist still embeded in the DOJ who just made it all up, or 2) the AP reporter just made it all up out of whole cloth in order to create a juicy “news” story.

This reliance on a single anonymous “source” is the worst kind of journalistic hackery, and it is what has enabled the Democrats and their deep state army to keep the nation in a state of perpetual uproar for three solid years now. Many are angry right now at Nancy Pelosi for being the despicable power-mad seditionist in charge of the freak show Democrat caucus in the house of representatives, and that anger is fully justified. Many are also angry at Robert Mueller and Rod Rostenstein and James Comey and John Brennan and Peter Strzok and Lisa Page and Andrew McCabe and Bruce and Nellie Ohr and all the other treasonous snakes who participated in the first phase of the Democrats’ neverending coup d’etat, and that anger is also completely rational and justified.

But that anger is misdirected if those are you only targets, or even if they are your main targets. Because the reality we face is that none of this could have taken place without the tireless efforts of the mainstream fake news media to facilitate it every step of the way. Because if these politicians and deep state skunks had even the slightest concern about being subjected to honest efforts by curious, aggressive journalists to police their actions and ask them tough questions – you know, the role the founders of our country envisioned for the press – the utterly laughable “Russia Collusion” narrative would have been decimated the day after it was floated by the Clinton campaign back in 2016.

Instead, they are all free to go and do whatever comes into their evil little minds because the know they will never have to pay any price in the realm of media exposure for saying and doing it. Look at what happened in Austin yesterday, where San Fran Nan appeared on stage. There she was allowed to just spew her carefully-scripted talking points without any fear at all of being asked anything resembling a tough question or pressed by the moderator whenever she said something so completely outrageous – like her contention she’s doing all of this to “protect the constitution” – that it would make an average German Shepherd pup laugh out loud in derision.

The most divisive politician in modern history actually said this unchallenged:

“Let us be prayerful. Let us be solemn. Let us try not to make it further divisive,” she added. “But we cannot ignore our oath of office do defend the Constitution of the United States from all enemies foreign and domestic.”

You seriously could never make this stuff up, folks. The Texas Tribune’s story on the interview naturally puts that quote way up near the top without critical comment.

Pelosi never agrees to make any appearance unless she is confident she will simply be fed a series of softball questions that she could answer without critical scrutiny. Every Democrat in the congress schedules media interviews carefully in the same way, and they have a target-rich environment of media outlets clamoring to perform such trained-monkey interviews. This is also why the DNC refuses to hold a debate hosted by Fox News. They have no concerns that Chris Wallace might ask a difficult question, but hey, they don’t have Bret Baier and Martha MacAllum in their pockets yet, so why take the risk?

Adam Schiff’s completely made-up soliloquy from last Thursday’s House Intelligence Committee hearing is another great example. Although every broadcast network was perfectly willing to interrupt their lucrative daytime program to carry the hearing live, not a single network newscast made any mention of the fact that Schiff’s opening remarks were complete fiction.

The President’s mention of Crowdstrike on that Zelensky call is another prime example of this media refusal to report the truth. As we wrote here last week, that reference is what really has the Democrats  and their media toadies in a panic. It has nothing to do with Joe Biden, who they are perfectly willing to sacrifice at the altar of protecting the deep state.

Four days later, have you seen any mainstream media outlet mention that reference to their readers or viewers? Have you seen any fake journalist attempt to explain to their brainwashed masses what that reference means and why it’s important?

Of course you haven’t. Because if they go down that road, it might raise issues that become impossible for the Democrats to answer. So that gets ignored in favor of publishing pieces and having talking heads on TV who focus on vilifying Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham, who the media and Democrats fear are actually investigating all the stuff James Comey did his best to cover up.

So, yes, be very angry at Pelosi and the Democrat seditious freak show she commands. They deserve your outrage. All of them.

But at the same time, don’t forget to direct your scorn at the fake media establishment that enables them to do what they do. Because the utter lack of an honest media establishment dedicated to holding politicians accountable, regardless of party affiliation, is why the foundations of our society are in the process of crumbling.

That is all.

The Curious Potential Bombshell Case of Patrick Byrne

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

I honestly don’t know what to make of this, so I’m just going to let you watch and judge for yourselves. – Overstock founder Patrick Byrne resigned his CEO position at the company on Thursday, and shortly thereafter appeared on Fox Business’s Varney & Co. program. What he had to say about his alleged involvement in several FBI domestic espionage efforts against various political campaigns would, if true, amount to grounds for scattering the raging dumpster fire agency to the winds.

Here’s the clip of the interview:

The interview is too long to do a complete transcript, but here are the highlights:

Byrne claims the following:

  • “Because 17 years ago, I helped them crack a murder…they knew me, and they called me in 2015, 2016 to assist in something. I didn’t know who the orders came from, but I assisted.
  • “I took some orders that seemed a little fishy, didn’t know who the orders came from, but last summer while watching television, I figured out …that the name of the man who sent me the orders was a guy named Peter Strzok.”
  • Question: Are you working with the Attorney General? “Let me be clear: I’m not working with anybody.  The last time I talked to a federal office was five months ago. I explained everything to them between April 5 and April 30, and then I disappeared.”
  • “Bill Barr – there’s gonna be a sculpture of granite of this guy somewhere – I couldn’t come forward for three years until there was rule of law in this country. I wasn’t gonna come forward when this guy Jeff Sessions…Truman said of an opponent I can carve a better man out of a banana, that’s how Americans should feel about Jeff Sessions.”
  • ” Now, we have rule of law and I came forward to them in April. There are other whistle blowers within the federal bureaucracy with similar stories.
  • The bottom line is there’s a big coverup, there was political espionage conducted against Hillary Clinton, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and Donald Trump.”
  • ” I was in the room when it happened. I was a part of it. I thought I was doing law enforcement. Sorry.”

That’s all in the first 4:30 of the clip. Byrne does not get more specific about exactly what activities he undertook for Strzok and the FBI, but goes onto say that he has told the whole story to Barr and that his information has been rolled into U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation into the whole Spygate scandal. Byrne says he resigned because he expects to soon become very publicly embroiled in the scandal as the Horowitz Report on FISA abuse is rolled out and the results of Durham’s investigation begin to bear fruit.

Byrne in fact claims that Barr’s decision to appoint Durham on May 13 was in part motivated by the story he delivered to Barr on April 30. Byrne also claims that he decided to resign now after consulting with his “guru” Warren Buffet, who advised him to do it now because if he didn’t, the Deep State would use his company to “grind me down.”

Byrne appeared again on Fox News later with Martha Macallum, but did not reveal any more details.

Another very interesting facet of Byrne’s statements is his contention that another reason why he was approached by the FBI was the fact that he was carrying on an affair with Russian lawyer Maria Butina, who has popped up in several places during the whole “Russia Collusion” fantasy play.

Readers may remember that Butina was arrested by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s thugs on charges that she was a Russian agent. After reaching a plea deal amid claims she had become a “cooperating witness” with the Mueller team, she had curiously been held in maximum security isolation until May 9, when she was suddenly moved to a white collar facility. Byrne claims that that move was also made due to his testimony to Barr.

No further charges against anyone have come from Butina’s supposed cooperation with Mueller’s thugs. Byrne’s story, combined with this curiously harsh treatment of a “cooperating” witness makes one wonder if Mueller’s people had isolated Butina in order to prevent her from making any public statements.

The clear outlier in all of this, however, is Byrne’s contention that the FBI wasn’t just spying on Trump and other Republican candidates, but on the Hillary Clinton campaign as well. While such a massive domestic spying operation within Obama’s corrupted FBI and Justice Department is certainly not difficult to imagine, given everything else we now know, the motivation they might have had for spying on the Pantsuit Princess is a mystery until we have more data.

If Byrne is to be believed, we will begin getting that additional data from Horowitz, Durham and Barr after Labor Day.

After so many previous false promises of such damaging new data, all I can say is that I will believe it when I see it.

That is all.

Trump’s New Hampshire Rally Shows Why His Opponents Are So Desperate

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

You may have been wondering why your support for Donald Trump has suddenly resulted in your being labeled a “white supremacist.” Doesn’t matter whether you happen to actually be white, or whether you are latino, black, male, female or one of the other mythical genders now being invented by the political left, if you support the sitting President of the United States of America, that means you will be labeled a “white supremacist” by the Democrats and our fake news media.

Don’t laugh at the notion that President Trump actually has Latino and Black supporters: A just-released Zogby poll shows the President’s support among those two demographics rising substantially in response to the ongoing “white supremacist” campaign. According to Zogby, 28% of registered Black voters and fully 49% of registered Latinos approve of Trump’s job performance.

Which of course is one more reason why the Democrats and their media toadies are frantically attempting to marginalize you as being some sort of inhuman monster. If the President were to win just 30% of Latino votes (he won 28% in 2016) and maybe 12% of the Black vote (he got 6% in 2016) next year, he will be re-elected in a massive landslide, and sweep in new, larger majorities in both houses of congress with him.

The Democrats cannot countenance that, so they believe they can counteract that growing public approval rating by labeling the President as a hater of Latinos and Blacks. But because ordinary Americans are not nearly as stupid as Democrats invariably assume them to be, this transparently cynical strategy is backfiring.

If you can remember all the way back to last week, Democrat members of congress and presidential candidates like Joaquin Castro (a guy who doxxes his own supporters), the pathetic Irish Bob O’Rourke, and Spartacus Booker rushed to argue that because Trump was a racist bigot who literally caused the mass shootings in Dayton and El Paso, why, that means he simply must cancel all future rallies like the one we saw Thursday night in New Hampshire.

Why do you suppose they would make such an outlandishly laughable leap of logic? Because they know just how effective those rallies happen to be, and understand how critical they are to the President’s chances of being re-elected. Other than his Twitter feed, those rallies are the only means President Trump has of cutting through the fake news media fog and talking directly to the American people.

But, you might be thinking, how does that work, since the only media outlet that televises the rallies is Fox News? New York Times best-selling author Larry Schweikart answered that question in his book – co-authored with Joel Pollak – “How Trump Won”:

[I’m not active on Twitter anymore, but if you are and you aren’t following @LarrySchweikart and @joelpollak, you are missing out.]

Note what Larry says in that tweet: “the main value of the rallies was NOT Trump speaking to those in attendance but the local news coverage into large regions that allowed Trump to get his message out in short bursts without national anti-Trump ‘panels’ commenting.”  Bingo.

The President doesn’t really care that CNN and MSNBC don’t televise his rallies, in part because their audiences are rapidly shrinking since their “muh Russia collusion” narrative crashed up on the shoals of the Mueller Report, and in part because anyone watching those two fake news networks is already completely brainwashed anyway.

What Trump cares about is that he spoke to 12,000 New Hampshire voters Thursday night, and anyone who draws a crowd of 12,000 in New Hampshire is going to get gobs of coverage on every local newscast in the state. That coverage is going to largely consist of out-takes of key messages from his speech. That is an incredibly valuable means of influencing hundreds of thousands more potential voters.

Note also that, while Schweikart and Pollak say the local coverage is the “main value” of the rallies, they do not say that the attendance at the rallies is not important as well. Quite the contrary: The President spoke to more individual voters in that arena last night than any of the Democrat candidates have spoken to through the course of their entire campaigns at this point.

Even more valuable, every one of those 12,000 potential voters left that arena pumped up and ready to go try to convince their friends and family to vote for Trump. They’ll all be talking for weeks and months about the excitement he generated in that arena.

So, you wonder why you are suddenly being labeled a “white supremacist,” an inhuman monster who must be shunned and punished? It’s because if you are just a regular patriotic American who loves your country and wants it to be great again, then the Democrats have literally no hope of defeating you and President Trump in 2020.

It really is that simple.

That is all.

Dr. Drew: 80% of California Coast Infested With Human Feces

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

This Friday interview by Laura Ingraham with Dr. Drew Pinskey has received the blackout treatment from our fake news media since the problem is for the most part due to yet another failure of Democrat-pushed policies.  Those policies are turning the coastal Pacific into a cesspool of human waste.

Take a look at the video clip here – a transcript follows below for those of you who still like to read:

Here’s a partial transcript of the key points:

Laura Ingraham: Well, it’s not really smoke on the water, it’s poop in the water. A new report is finding that human and animal feces are contaminating some of America’s most popular beaches. The nation’s dirtiest? Well, you’ll find out that outside of LA, for California as a whole, nearly 80% of the state’s beaches had at least one day with fecal matter above EPA safety levels.

Here now is Dr. Drew Pinsky. Dr. Drew, some are pushing back against this study, but do these findings seem plausible to you?

Drew Pinsky: Oh, absolutely. What’s going on here in Southern California, I can tell you precisely what’s happening here. There is an organization out here called Heal the Bay which keeps tabs on safety of our beaches in Southern Calfornia, from Orange County to Ventura. Since the rains last Winter, [Heal the Bay] has been giving our beaches C’s to F’s, and F means completely overrun with fecal bacteria. What comes with that are other things like syringes, Hepatitis A and other infectious diseases.

Now, I spoke to a representative at Heal the Bay. His explanation was all the runoff from the fires… the fires that caused about 2 dozen homes to get disconnected from the sewage treatment plant. [Obviously an absurdity]

Laura, there are 60,000 people defecating directly into our gutters every day. Urinating, defecating, bleeding. Their sewage is going directly into the ocean. We’ve had a massive die off of sea mammals in the spring, and for goodness sakes, if a city the size of Pasadena   suddenly became disconnected from our sewage treatment plant that where do you think the environmentalists would be on that? They would be screaming bloody murder. Where are they now? Where are they? This is a catastrophe. It is exposing all of us to potential, really serious infectious diseases.”

I was a lifeguard on those beaches back in the day – I know what’s going on when water gets bad…Runoffs happen all the time, but this was a consistent contamination of our water, and why shouldn’t it be? As many as 80,000 people are contributing directly into the LA River, into the Santa Ana River Basin. These river let out – guess what, where do they let out? Into the Ocean.

Laura: There’s also a problem with Mexico, pumping their raw sewage into the ocean. I did a report on this, I think it was 20 years ago. Terrible problem with raw sewage from Mexico, floats up to the San Diego beaches, and that’s been a persistent problem for a long time.

You mentioned the homeless crisis in California. This YouTube star named “Flecas Talks” hit skid row to show just how horrifying the situation has become [shows video clip].

Watch the rest of the video. It’s something all Americans need to see.

That is all.

WATCH: Sen. John Kennedy Goes Off on John Brennan and Iran

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

Dar Adol…er…John Brennan, ex-CIA chief and current sedition-bleater on MSNBC and Twitter, was on Capitol Hill on Tuesday. He was there at the invitation to “brief” the Democrats on the situation with Iran. This despite the fact that the seditious ex-spook was defrocked of his security clearance by President Donald Trump last summer.

No doubt sensing an opportunity for high entertainment, Fox News host Martha MacCallum invited the very plain-spoken Louisiana Senator John Kennedy on her show to comment both on Brennan’s visit to the Hill and the ongoing tensions with Iran. As usual, Sen. Kennedy did not disappoint. Here’s the clip – a transcript follows.:

For those of you who still like to read stuff, here’s the Transcript [Emphasis Added]

Macallum: What was John Brennan doing on the Hill today?

Kennedy: In my judgment, Martha, um, Mr. Brennan needs to take off his tin hat and get a job. He’s lost his security clearance. The only thing he’s well-versed in is the stuff he makes up. It is clear to me, and has been for some time that Mr. Brennan is not a national security professional, that he’s a politician. And that’s why I think he let the American people down while he ran our CIA.

In terms of what’s actually going on, we had a classified briefing today – by we, I mean all of my senate colleagues and I – by the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Defense, the Joint Chiefs of Staff. We are not trying to provoke war with Iran. Our moves are entirely defensive. We’re trying to protect American soldiers and American interests and the interests of our friends in Iran.

MM: We spoke to Lindsey Graham last night, and he said that when the broader group listened to this, that they would be alarmed by what they learned. Were you alarmed by the provocative nature of what Iran has been up to?

JK: Well, I was alarmed in the sense that, without revealing classified information, it is clear based on our intelligence that the danger Iran represents to the United States had been heightened by Iran. I am comforted by the fact that I think our response was entirely appropriate. I’m not clairvoyant, but I believe that the danger has been lessened somewhat. We can’t let our guard down.

The truth of the matter is that Iran is a cancer. It’s a cancer on the Middle East, and it’s a cancer on the world. Not the people of Iran, but their leadership, the Ayatollah. He’s not mixed up, he’s not confused, it’s not a question that his momma or daddy didn’t love him enough.

He just hates America. And his religion tells him, his interpretation of his religion tells him to hate all those, including but not limited to America, who disagree with him. And we just have to deal with that.

Now, the Obama Administration thought that by making a nuclear deal with the Ayatollah, we could somehow change his behavior. As a result of that deal, the Ayatollah received between $50-$150 billion dollars – that’s 9 zeroes – he didn’t change his behavior, he used that money to export terrorism. Supporting Hezbollah, supporting Hamas. President Trump has responded appropriately.

He’s hit ‘em with sanctions, and those sanctions are hurting Iran and the people of Iran. And I hate to see it for the people, but I’m glad to see it for the leadership.

MM: Well, the question is where we go from here…

JK: Well, lemme tell ya where we go from here. We have Iran down, and now we need to choke ‘em. That’s the only thing the Ayatollah, the Supreme Leader, understands.

MM: And will we do that with continued sanctions or with military?

JK: No, with sanctions. I do not believe we will have a war with Iran. The Ayatollah may be evil, but he’s not stupid. We have sanctions on their oil exports, on their medical exports, on their metals exports, on their Revolutionary Guard. They’re hurting the leadership badly.

[End]

Greatness. No further commentary necessary.

That is all.
