Thursday News Roundup: Andrew Cuomo Might be in Real Trouble

Andrew Cuomo could be in real trouble, finally. – I know it’s hard to believe that any Democrat public official in this country could ever be in real trouble, given the devoted efforts of the entirety of the corrupt national news media to provide cover for them. Least of all, Andrew Cuomo, who the media has virtually deified during the COVID pandemic, pretending that his utterly disastrous responses to the virus were somehow a role model for other governors to emulate.

But he really could be in trouble now, mainly because even his fellow Democrats in New York are beginning to turn against him in the wake of revelations that his administration systematically and intentionally under-reported the number of elderly residents who were dying in the state’s nursing homes, thanks mainly to Cuomo’s policy of sending them to those homes from hospitals before their course of treatment had ended, and while they were still contagious. It seems that even some Democrats don’t really want to be seen as supporting a governor who is responsible for the needless deaths of thousands of their own people.

On Wednesday, Democrat state representative Ron Kim told reporters that Cuomo had threated to “destroy” him if he didn’t help Cuomo chief of staff Melissa DeRosa cover up the administration’s systematic under-reporting of nursing home deaths, an effort DeRosa herself led on Cuomo’s behalf.

From a story at The Hill:

New York Assemblyman Ron Kim (D) told CNN on Wednesday that Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) had threatened him over the phone after he criticized the governor over a pause in the release of data on coronavirus deaths in state nursing homes.

“Gov. Cuomo called me directly on Thursday to threaten my career if I did not cover up for Melissa [DeRosa] and what she said. He tried to pressure me to issue a statement, and it was a very traumatizing experience,” Kim told CNN.

“We’re in this business together and we don’t cross certain lines,” Kim said the governor told him. He also said Cuomo told him that he “hadn’t seen his wrath and that he can destroy me.”

Top Cuomo aide Melissa DeRosa told state lawmakers during a virtual meeting that the Cuomo administration “froze” releasing information on long-term care facility deaths out of concern that the Department of Justice (DOJ) under former President Trump would launch a federal investigation.

[End]

Oh. Bad optics, there, Governor. But not really surprising given his family’s historic ties to the New York mob.

But things are just getting worse for the thug-in-chief. This morning, multiple outlets are reporting that Cuomo now finds himself under investigation by both the FBI and the New York State Attorney General’s office.

From the story at DailyWire:

New York Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo is under investigation by the United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, as well as the FBI, for his administration’s decision to send recovering coronavirus patients into nursing homes and other long-term care facilities, local New York media reported Wednesday night.

According to the Albany Times-Union, the U.S. Attorney’s investigation is in its “early stages” but is focusing on Cuomo’s controversial nursing home policy, which may have resulted in thousands of deaths, many more than the Cuomo administration originally reported.

“The probe by the U.S. attorney’s office in the Eastern District of New York is apparently in its early stages and is focusing on the work of some of the senior members of the governor’s task force, according to a person with direct knowledge of the matter who is not authorized to comment publicly,” the Times-United noted.

“Last March, as the virus began spreading in New York, Cuomo issued a news release listing the 13 initial members of his coronavirus task force, which has been headed by Linda Lacewell, an attorney and former chief of staff for Cuomo,” the outlet reported. “Lacewell is the superintendent of the state Department of Financial Services. Other task force members include state health Commissioner Howard Zucker, Secretary to the Governor Melissa DeRosa and Beth Garvey, counsel to the governor.”

The governor’s office acknowledged to the Times-Union that there is a Department of Justice investigation but insisted that there was no news to report on the subject.

[End]
Oh. Of course, given the utterly corrupt nature of the national dumpster fire of corruption and incompetence that is the FBI, it’s most likely that information was leaked purely for public consumption, as the agency tries to make it look as if it is doing its job, but will conveniently drop the whole thing once all the hub bub dies down and the news cycle moves to other matters. No one should expect any real action against a high-profile Democrat out of those guys and gals.

As for the New York AG’s office, well, who knows? We’ll just have to wait and see on that one. It should be noted, though, that Rep. Kim is far from the only Democrat in the state who has come out to criticize Cuomo over this matter, so the pressure on that office to perform a real investigation will be significant.

Meanwhile, Cuomo’s little brother Fredo has been reined in by management at CNN, and won’t be allowed to engage in late-night shenanigans and hilarity with his big bro as New Yorkers die all around them anymore.

From the story at DailyWire:

CNN reinstated a ban this week on opinion host Chris Cuomo being able to interview or cover his scandal-ridden brother, New York Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo, which comes as reports surfaced on Wednesday evening that a criminal investigation has been launched into Andrew Cuomo’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic as it relates to nursing homes.

“The early months of the pandemic crisis were an extraordinary time. We felt that Chris speaking with his brother about the challenges of what millions of American families were struggling with was of significant human interest,” CNN said in a statement. “As a result, we made an exception to a rule that we have had in place since 2013 which prevents Chris from interviewing and covering his brother, and that rule remains in place today. CNN has covered the news surrounding Governor Cuomo extensively.”

[End]

That pusillanimous statement from CNN is what we here on the frozen arctic tundra of Texas like to call a rank, smelly load of fresh horse manure. Scum of the earth, all of them.

Speaking of scum of the earth, Bette Midler was also in the news on Wednesday. – The elderly, washed-up singer summed up the feelings of all of her fellow Hollywood leftists about the fact that 4 million Texans are freezing without electricity right now in a single tweet:

 

Midler’s ghoulish tweet was actually sort of mild in comparison to the outpouring of vile hatred from the left in response to the death yesterday of the great Rush Limbaugh. I’m not going to repeat any of it here, but suffice it to say that our leftist friends invariably unmask their true faces to us whenever a prominent conservative dies.

I keep telling you these people hate you and would rather you were dead, folks. Believe me now?

That is all.

Thursday News Roundup: Joe Biden, Not-so-Secret Agent for China

Because real, actual voting data is better than polling data. – Our good friend and frequent contributor Larry Schweikart has a terrific piece over at UncoverDC.com this morning, covering a multitude of early voting data. Here’s an excerpt:

In yesterday’s [Florida] Vote By Mail, the Democrats continued to add ballots—at a rate of about 3% per day. A poster to www.freerepublic.com, “SpeedyinTexas,” has been working off assumptions based on 81% Democrat turnout and 2016 numbers that put the Democrats’ target for VBMs at a lead of 653,000. That would overcome the 2016 Trump advantage and the anticipated Republican lead in “In-Person Early Voting” (i.e., walk-ins or IPEV) of 359,000. That number would constitute 55% of the Democratic lead and would make the final lead for the Democrats by election day of 294,000. This number, Speedy argues, Republicans can overcome on election day with a 2016 level turnout.

What happens if they “keep comin’?” If they continue to hold a pace of 3% per day, the Democrats would hit the turnout rate of 84%. Such a turnout would be hard for Republicans to overcome. Moreover, the VBM ballots provided, but not yet voted, are 1.2m for Democrats and 926,000 for Republicans, so in ballots still outstanding the Democrats can extend their lead. And, if current trends continue, Republicans would fall just short of their 359,000 goal by about 10-15,000. Analyst Nate Silver, however, has argued that the Democrats need to reach a 70/30 split by election day to have a chance: right now it’s 54-49 returned ballots. That is well short.

Probably a more realistic final turnout will be 82% R and 79% D, which would be an R advantage of 70,000 votes. Again, none of this accounts for Democrats voting for Trump, or Republicans voting for Biden. But I think the weight is on the side of the former. Consider Miami-Dade County which is heavily Hispanic. The D/R Hispanic split yesterday was a mere 1,000 votes (and again, many of these Florida Hispanics will be voting for Trump). Today Miami has a 28% R turnout—unheard of.

[End]

Go read the whole thing. You’ll glad – and better educated – for doing so.

Masks for thee but not for me. It’s the liberal way. – Chris “Fredo” Cuomo, who has become one of the media’s most detestable mask scolds during the China Virus pandemic, was once again revealed to be a raging hypocrite on Wednesday. Hey, what else is new?

Turns out Fredo is a serial violator of his Manhattan apartment building’s mask policy, and Tucker Carlson got ahold of a letter he had recently received from his landlord threatening a $500 fine if he continues his scofflaw ways. Here is part of what that letter says:

“You have been observed entering and exiting the building and riding the elevator without the required face coverings,” reads part of the August 6 letter.

“Even though staff members have asked you to comply with this requirement, you have refused to do so. This is a violation of the Executive Order, building policy, and places other residents and our staff at risk. There are no exceptions to this rule, and you are required to comply.”

[End]

Fredo, of course, has been repeatedly captured maskless on video while out in public, both during and since his infamous – and probably faked – personal bout with the viral gift from China. He is indeed one of America’s most raging hypocrites and fakes, but hey, he works for CNN, so that’s just part of the gig.

More bad news for the Bidens. – One of Hunter Biden’s “business partners,” Lt. Tony Bobulinski, has grown weary of covering for the Bidens’ bullshit. Mr. Bobulinski has become fairly famous over the past week, as his name apparently can be found all over Hunter’s infamous laptop, and he doesn’t want said fame.

Thus, he released a statement on Wednesday, which Fox’s John Roberts tweeted out in full last night:

Courtesy of the still-banned-by-Twitter New York Post, here is the full text of that letter:

My name is Tony Bobulinski. The facts set forth below are true and accurate; they are not any form of domestic or foreign disinformation. Any suggestion to the contrary is false and offensive. I am the recipient of the email published seven days ago by the New York Post which showed a copy to Hunter Biden and Rob Walker. That email is genuine.

This afternoon I received a request from the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs and the Senate Committee on Finance requesting all documents relating to my business affairs with the Biden family as well as various foreign entities and individuals. I have extensive relevant records and communications and I intend to produce those items to both Committees in the immediate future.

I am the grandson of a 37 year Army Intelligence officer, the son of a 20+ year career Naval Officer and the brother of a 28 year career Naval Flight Officer. I myself served our country for 4 years and left the Navy as LT Bobulinski. I held a high level security clearance and was an instructor and then CTO for Naval Nuclear Power Training Command. I take great pride in the time my family and I served this country. I am also not a political person. What few campaign contributions I have made in my life were to Democrats.

Enlarge ImageTony Bobulinski
Tony Bobulinski

If the media and Big Tech companies had done their jobs over the past several weeks I would be irrelevant in this story. Given my long standing service and devotion to this great country, I could no longer allow my family’s name to be associated or tied to Russian disinformation or implied lies and false narratives dominating the media right now.

After leaving the military I became an institutional investor investing extensively around the world and on every continent. I have traveled to over 50 countries. I believe, hands down, we live in the greatest country in the world.

What I am outlining is fact. I know it is fact because I lived it. I am the CEO of Sinohawk Holdings which was a partnership between the Chinese operating through CEFC/Chairman Ye and the Biden family. I was brought into the company to be the CEO by James Gilliar and Hunter Biden. The reference to “the Big Guy” in the much publicized May 13, 2017 email is in fact a reference to Joe Biden. The other “JB” referenced in that email is Jim Biden, Joe’s brother.

Hunter Biden called his dad ‘the Big Guy’ or ‘my Chairman,’ and frequently referenced asking him for his sign-off or advice on various potential deals that we were discussing. I’ve seen Vice President Biden saying he never talked to Hunter about his business. I’ve seen firsthand that that’s not true, because it wasn’t just Hunter’s business, they said they were putting the Biden family name and its legacy on the line.

I realized the Chinese were not really focused on a healthy financial ROI. They were looking at this as a political or influence investment. Once I realized that Hunter wanted to use the company as his personal piggy bank by just taking money out of it as soon as it came from the Chinese, I took steps to prevent that from happening.

The Johnson Report connected some dots in a way that shocked me — it made me realize the Bidens had gone behind my back and gotten paid millions of dollars by the Chinese, even though they told me they hadn’t and wouldn’t do that to their partners.

I would ask the Biden family to address the American people and outline the facts so I can go back to being irrelevant — and so I am not put in a position to have to answer those questions for them.

I don’t have a political ax to grind; I just saw behind the Biden curtain and I grew concerned with what I saw. The Biden family aggressively leveraged the Biden family name to make millions of dollars from foreign entities even though some were from communist controlled China.

God bless America.

[End]

Oh. Well, then.

God Bless America, indeed.

As Creepy Sleepy China Joe McNastyFinger likes to say, “look, here’s the deal”: A vote for Joe Biden is a vote for the subjugation of the United States of America to the Communist Chinese overlords. It is a vote for full surrender, because China Joe’s nickname is not a joke: It’s for real, folks. It is who he is. He is hopelessly compromised. There is no question about this.

Get your butts out there and vote to save this country. Get out and vote for Donald J. Trump. At this point, that is your patriotic duty to your country.

That is all.

Tuesday News Roundup: Tucker Carlson Exposes Soros as Seattle’s Mayor Hires a Pimp

Here’s how depraved Democrats are in their pursuit of political power. – The House’s new draft of a short-term budget deal through December 11 defunds school lunches for children and aid to American farmers, so that their candidates can then go into rural areas where both are needed and blame Donald Trump.

From a story at BreakingDefense.com:

The document, released Monday by the House Appropriations Committee, could go up for a vote before the entire House later this week before being sent to the Senate.

In a sign of the fights to come with only nine days until the federal government shuts down, Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell immediately rejected the proposed House bill, writing on Twitter: “House Democrats’ rough draft of a government funding bill shamefully leaves out key relief and support that American farmers need. This is no time to add insult to injury and defund help for farmers and rural America.”

[End]

Every time you think the Democrat Party could not possibly become any more despicable than it already is, they go and prove you wrong again.

Fox News can’t mute Tucker Carlson. – Fox is moving increasingly left during its daytime programming, but the ratings power of its evening host lineup is keeping that four-hour block steadfastly conservative.

Late last week, we saw the spectacle of former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich being shut down by Harris Faulkner, Melissa Francis and Marie Harf when he raised the unarguable fact that George Soros has spent hundreds of millions of dollars over the last decade supporting radical anarchists in district attorney elections all over the country. This summer, we saw the results of that Soros effort with hundreds of domestic terrorists being released immediately without charges filed against them after they had been arrested for rioting in cities like Portland, Seattle, Minnesota, Houston, Dallas, Atlanta, St. Louis, Chicago and New York.

Tucker Carlson, host of Fox’s 8-9 p.m. ET hour, took it upon himself to respond to Fox’s censorship of Gingrich by airing a full-segment report on Soros’s evil activity last night, and it is outstanding. Here’s the clip of it:

So long as his ratings remain strong, Carlson apparently still overrules Paul Ryan in the Fox News power structure.

Philly fans boo everything, even when they aren’t there. – During their loss to the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz was booed twice as he came off the field after throwing interceptions:

That’s nothing unusual, of course. What is odd about this situation, though, is that there were no fans in attendance in Philly on Sunday. Wentz was in fact booed by the fake fan noise being pumped into the stadium by employees of his own team. I’m not sure you’ll see that adherence to authenticity in any other BLMFL stadium this season.

While Joe Biden flubbed the lines to the Pledge of Allegiance while reading yet another TelePrompter speech to yet another imaginary audience, President Donald Trump put in a full day’s work at the White House – including a meeting with potential nominee Amy Coney Barrett – then flew out to Toledo, Ohio for another of his massive airport rallies.

Here are some scenes from that:

But the fake pollsters expect you to believe that the guy who doesn’t even know how to put on his mask with the blue part facing outwards is leading the incumbent who draws these crowds everywhere he goes.

Don Lemon says the part he isn’t supposed to say out loud. – CNN is now officially aligned with the domestic terrorist groups and their goals of destroying America.  Watch as pretend journalist Don Lemon formally adopts the Antifa/BLM goal of “[blowing] up the entire system”:

Dear Don: When what you’re saying is too extreme for even Fredo to endorse, you’ve probably said too much.

The Big Apple continues to rot from its core. – In a bit of real news that was of course ignored by our corrupt, mainstream news media, the Daily Caller reports that 87% of New York City restaurants were unable to make their August rent payments due to the depressing effects of ongoing lockdown orders by the city’s buffoon Mayor, and thanks to the fact that House Democrats killed a Republican stimulus bill that would have provided rent support before they left for their August vacation.

From that Daily Caller story:

A survey found that 87% of New York City restaurants, bars, and nightlife venues couldn’t pay their full rent in August as the city grapples with permanent business closures and unemployment.

The survey by the NYC Hospitality Alliance also showed that 34% of these establishments couldn’t pay rent at all, Patch reported.

The results, which were released Monday, come ahead of the scheduled reopening of indoor dining at 25% capacity starting Sept. 30. If positive rates for coronavirus don’t show significant increase, the capacity will be raised to 50% by Nov. 1, according to Eater.

But many restaurants are struggling to remain afloat in the meantime, and outdoor dining seemingly failed to help many businesses survive the warmer months of the pandemic.

“Restaurants, bars and nightlife venues have been financially devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic,” Andrew Rigie, the group’s executive director, said in a statement according to the NY Post.

“Even before the pandemic when operating at 100 percent occupancy, these small businesses were struggling to stay open. Now we’re seeing widespread closures, approximately 150,000 industry workers are still out of their jobs, and the overwhelming majority of these remaining small businesses cannot afford to pay rent.”

[End]

Thanks, Bill de Blasio and Nancy Pelosi!

Meanwhile, in Riot City, USA… – The domestic terrorists in BLM and Antifa took their rioting to another residential neighborhood overnight as local police stood around and watched:

In Seattle, communist Democrat Mayor Jenny Durkan has hired a pimp to be her “Street Czar”, because of course she has:

You just could never make this stuff up, folks. Come back and see me – I’m here all week.

Democrats are Projecting Their November Plans – All we Have to do is pay Attention

The masks are coming off in droves now, folks. – The radical left is just coming right out and telling you what they have planned for you now; they are no longer even trying to shield it. All you have to do is pay attention.

Yesterday was a field day in these terms, as leftist luminaries from Don Lemon to Nancy Pelosi to the Pantsuit Princess herself spewed out their hate rhetoric towards President Trump and anyone who supports him completely unfiltered.

Don Lemon, a high priest of the Nazi-style chaos cult that is CNN, had this to say about you in a conversation with fellow high priest Fredo Cuomo:

Here’s a clip from that story at The Blaze:

During the conversation, Lemon shared his unvarnished thoughts on the tens of millions of Americans who support the president.

“If I had a real friend, who was involved in a cult, which I feel it is cultish behavior, I must try to help them,” Lemon said, comparing those who support the president to blind followers of a cult. “And you can only go so far until you say, until you reach bottom, I cannot deal with it. It’s like an addiction. Until you reach bottom and you want help, I can’t deal with it.”

“Here’s how I feel about this,” he continued. “I don’t care about whether you’re right or left. I’ve been right — I was a young Republican — and left. I am an independent now. And I am an independent thinker, and I believe in reality. I believe in facts. I believe one plus one equals two. And so, when I’m talking to people who, [are not] smart but, who think they are smart … then, I have to — I got to let you go.”

Lemon then suggested that a type of intervention is necessary before Trump supporters are allowed to vote.

“[Trump] lies to people and they believe it,” he said. “And so, what is that? Cultish behavior. And I think a lot of people need to be deprogrammed, right now, before they cast their next ballots.”

[End]

For the record, Don Lemon is a programmed cultist who spent the last four years pushing the “Russia collusion” lie and still pushes it; he has spent the last year pushing the Ukraine impeachment hoax and still pushes it; he has spent the last 3 years pushing the Charlottesville “really fine people” lie, and still pushes it; he pushed the Obamacare “if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor” lie for 8 long years; he pushed the Benghazi coverup for four solid years. He’s spent the past couple of weeks pushing Nancy Pelosi’s post office hoax. The list goes on and on.

Indeed, Don Lemon happily pushes every lie that the DNC tells him to push because the daily talking points memo from the DNC is his scripture, it is his religious dogma and he, like Fredo and everyone else at the Nazi-style CNN chaos cult, is a true believer.

Lemon’s remarks amount to a clear case of a cultist’s projection, plain and simple.

Speaking of projection, watch as San Fran Nan Pelosi calls President Trump and anyone who supports him “domestic enemies,” and  “enemies of the state.” Not kidding:

From a story at the Washington Times:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ratcheted up the revolutionary rhetoric on Monday by calling President Trump and his allies “domestic enemies” who must be ousted from the White House.

The California Democrat warned MSNBC viewers that Mr. Trump’s opposition to a sudden push for mail-in voting systems was tantamount to a Constitutional crisis.

“We take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic,” the lawmaker continued. “And sadly, the domestic enemies to our voting system and honoring our Constitution are right at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue with their allies in the Congress of the United States.”

The Republican’s “GOP War Room” YouTube channel immediately reacted to appearance by calling it “unhinged.”

“Let’s just get out there and mobilize, organize, and not let the President deter anybody from voting,” Mrs. Pelosi added. “Support the postal system, which is election central. They’re doing everything they can, suppress the vote — with your actions, scare people, intimidate by saying law enforcement will be there, diminish the role of the postal system in all of this. It’s really actually shameful. Enemies of the state.

[End]

So, if you oppose to the communist Democrat Party’s plot to steal the November elections via a mass mail-in voting system that will be easy to subvert, you – not the Democrats plotting to steal the elections – are an “enemy of the state.”

That, friends, is projection on a grand scale.

But wait, there’s more!

But Wait! There's More! - Billy Mays - quickmeme

Now, let’s talk about Hillary Clinton, the Pantsuit Princess, the Fainting Felon, the Coughing Crook, the Grasping Grifter who has spent the last 38 years corrupting and looting every American institution on which she has been able to lay her gnarly hands.

Just as she and her communist Democrat cronies and their corrupt toadies in the news media did in 2016, they have all been ramping up the drumbeat over the past few months claiming that President Trump will not be willing to concede the election on November 3 should he lose. This was an outright lie in 2016, and a clear and obvious case of projection given that the Hacking Hag has spent the last four years refusing to concede the clear results of the election, in which she was thrashed convincingly in the only measure that matters, the Electoral Vote.

Since around May, they have all ramped-up this false drumbeat against the President again, its purpose to disguise their own plan for creating as much chaos around the election as possible, thus giving Joe Biden his excuse to refuse to concede the results on Election Night.

Yesterday, the Fainting Felon just came right out and admitted it:

Hillary Clinton urged Joe Biden not to concede the presidential race if he is trailing President Trump on election night.

Clinton, who lost to Trump in the 2016 election and conceded the morning after the contest, said she believes this year’s election will drag out for several days because of issues with voting during the pandemic. She told Showtime’s The Circus that Biden would be wise to stay in the race long past Election Day.

Joe Biden should not concede under any circumstances because I think this is going to drag out, and eventually, I do believe he will win if we don’t give an inch and if we are as focused and relentless as the other side is,” Clinton said.

[End]

And there you have it. Set your clocks to it, folks: Joe Biden will not concede “under any circumstances” on Election Night. That is the Democrat plan. That is what is going to happen.

All these people do is project their own intentions. It’s in pretty much everything they say. All you have to do is pay attention, and take them at their word.

That is all.

Congress Declares Itself a Non-essential Entity

The Mid-Day Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Does Not Break For Lunch)

Tell us something we didn’t already know. – Every American should take note of the fact that the United States Congress chose to leave Washington D.C. for well over a full month in the midst of the most severe national and global crisis since September 11, 2001.

This represents absolute dereliction of duty on a grand and unprecedented scale.

Congress has basically classified itself as a non-essential entity. But hey, we’ve kind of known that all along, haven’t we?

Wait. We needed MIT to conduct a study to figure this out? – The New York Post carried a story this morning headlined “MIT study: Subways a ‘major disseminator’ of coronavirus in NYC”.

Excerpt from the report:

The paper, by MIT economics professor and physician Jeffrey Harris, points to a parallel between high ridership “and the rapid, exponential surge in infections” in the first two weeks of March — when the subways were still packed with up to 5 million riders per day — as well as between turnstile entries and virus hotspots.

“New York City’s multitentacled subway system was a major disseminator — if not the principal transmission vehicle — of coronavirus infection during the initial takeoff of the massive epidemic,” argues Harris, who works as a physician in Massachusetts.

You don’t say. Wonder what tipped them off?

Speaking of utter absurdities… – The corrupt news-fakers at Reuters carried a story this morning with this real, actual headline: “China says WHO has said no evidence coronavirus was made in a lab”.

Ok, so, Reuters quotes China, which quotes the corrupt WHO, which Reuters knows is just reciting China’s talking points. The article itself consists of 2 paragraphs containing maybe 75 words, with zero constructive analysis.

No hydroxychloroquine for her! – Just when Fredo gets towards the end of his own alleged recovery period from the Wuhan Virus, his wife allegedly comes down with it:

After demonizing hydroxychloroquine on-air for weeks solely because President Donald Trump has endorsed its use, Fredo mysteriously refuses to discuss what medications he has been treated with to fight the illness. Perhaps his wife will eventually be more forthcoming.

And now a message from your favorite budding James Bond villain:

Texas’s stellar Senator Ted Cruz saw this plaintive tweet from Gates, and responded as only Ted Cruz can do:

Brutal.

Conservatives Should Watch Tulsi Gabbard and Learn

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

You go, Tulsi. – I’ve consistently called Tulsi Gabbard one of the two actual interesting candidates in the Democrat presidential field, along with Andrew Yang. That’s not because I agree with either of those two about much, but because they are the only two people in the race who actually speak their own minds rather than just parroting talking points written and handed to them by staffers on any given day.

Of course, the relative independence of mind displayed by Gabbard is one of the main reasons why she and Yank literally had zero chance of really becoming any kind of force in the race, since the Democrat nominee will ultimately be decided either by a brianwashed voter base or, in the case of a split convention, the party bosses who brainwashed them.

All that having been said, I greeted the news that Gabbard had sued the pantsuit off the Pantsuit Princess this week with great joy and amusement. Gabbard is seeking $50 million in damages for the Coughing Crook’s allegation that the Hawaii Congresswoman and Major in the Army National Guard is a “Russian agent.” Of course, this is an accusation that the Grasping Grifter has leveled at a wide array of her tormentors since her 2016 campaign went down in flames, one so scurrilous that no one outside of the corrupt news media takes it seriously.

But obviously was highly offended by the Hacking Hag’s accusation, which was made a few months ago, and initially responded by demanding a retraction. Since that was not forthcoming, she decided to file a defamation suit, and it’s hard to blame her for doing so.

Good for her. While she probably has little chance of prevailing, this is a tactic that more people who are attacked by Democrat politicians and their media toadies need to be employing. There needs to be a cost for this kind of scurrilous behavior, and the only way to really cost these people is through their pocketbooks. If nothing else, Gabbard’s litigation will cost the Fainting Felon thousands of dollars in attorney’s fees.

And hey, if the other side thinks you’re getting some traction with the court, they may even offer to settle for millions, as CNN recently did in the defamation suit brought by Nicholas Sandmann and the Covington Catholic school. $25 million is real money for a fake news network that barely registers in the ratings anymore.

This is the kind of thing Republicans need to be doing – finding creative ways to exact a cost from the Democrats and their media hacks for all the outright lies they continue to spread. Every member of the Trump family and Trump cabinet should have defamation suits filed against CNN and MSNBC and their on-air talent like Fredo Cuomo and Rachel Maddow.

After all, the Democrats have zero reservations whatsoever using government money to hire highly-paid lawyers to corrupt our political system; witness the way they have used a vast team of Lawfare-affiliated contract lawyers to concoct and manage their impeachment scam against President Trump. The Democrats have also used the Lawfare people to tie up major Presidential executive orders and regulatory actions in the courts for months on end throughout this administration. It’s a very effective tactic, even though they pretty much always lose in the end, when the anti-constitutional decisions issued by their Obama-appointee federal judges generally get overturned by appellate courts or the Supreme Court. The bad guys lost again this week with the finalization of the Administration’s revised Waters of the United States regulation, but delay is the goal.

On the conservative side, however, things are different. Other than the various defamation suits brought by Sandmann and his lawyers, the most visible efforts to use the courts to police Democrat abuses come from the folks at Judicial Watch. Judicial Watch leader Tom Fitton and his folks do great work, but it’s like a David vs. Goliath battle that’s being fought in that arena.

Conservatives simply must become more active in this area and develop an effective counter-strategy to Lawfare’s activities, if only as a defensive strategy in the event of the election of another Democrat to the presidency. As things stand today, Democrat politicians and their toadies in the corrupt media are free to make any accusation they want, no matter how scurrilous and unfounded it may be, without consequence.

Ironically, Tulsi Gabbard, a Democrat presidential candidate, and Nick Sandmann, a high school student, are trying to show them the way. Is anyone watching and learning?

That is all.
