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.

That is all.

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:

That is all.

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.

That is all.

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.
