Monday News Roundup: More Biden Health Questions, Dems Drop Vote By Mail

This would explain so much about 2020. – Ok, so, follow along with me here…

Sunday, Joe Biden said 200 million Americans had died from the China virus. That’s 200 MILLION dead Americans.

About a year ago, Biden said that 150 million Americans had died from gun violence. Now, we’re up to 350 MILLION dead Americans.

The total population of the United States is roughly 330 million.

This means we are all dead.

Insults that have left you more confused than offended from Reddit | Metro News

This is not at all surprising, but it really is terrifying for the future of our country. – If you missed the book-promoting powder puff interview of H.R. McMaster by the terminally insipid Scott Pelley on 60 Minutes last night, here is the only 30-second clip you really need to see:

What Mr. McMaster reveals in this clip is that there is a clique of seditious bureaucrats inside the Trump Administration that has worked hard for the last 3 years and 8 months to overturn the results of the 2016 elections. These people – and McMaster is one of them – really do believe they are the “elite” in our society and that they, not elected officials, have a divine right to run the country.

For his own part, McMaster spent his entire time as National Security Advisor undermining President Trump’s policies and stacking the NSA White House staff with Obama loyalists like Eric Ciaramella. Which is why he thankfully did not last very long in that job.

Speaking of clips you need to see… – Check this out, as San Fran Nan has a Dementia Joe Biden moment during a Sunday interview on ABC’s “This Week”:

Seriously, it’s like somebody just hit the reset button on the side of the robot, and it started all over again.

Is there not a single leader in the Democrat Party who is not senile? I mean, other than the completely crazy ones like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?

Here’s one more clip you should see this morning. – Watch as the Unfrozen Caveman Nominee becomes completely, absolutely winded after walking about 60 feet:

What is that? It’s reminding of this clip, his famous “move it up” episode when he was using a TelePrompter while pretending to answer questions:

Completely out of breath, red in the face, and he’s just sitting there with no real physical exertion. Is this a by-product of some medication he’s taking? Taken together with his obviously advancing dementia, it’s all very distressing.

Oh, what the hell, we’ll just do clips today. – Here’s another clip you need to see to help gain an understanding of just how dishonest America’s community of “historians” really is. This is leftist “historian” John Meacham, explaining how Republican plans to follow the letter and spirit of the U.S. Constitution is actually a “violation” of the Constitution:

Meacham, of course, is a highly-paid “contributor” to rigidly leftwing MSNBC. Obviously, when it comes to this “historian,” money really talks.

The Democrat “vote by mail” scam is coming up a crapper. – That’s become increasingly obvious as the conservative alternative media works overtime to expose the scam for what it is. Now that their plan to steal the election has been subjected to a little sunlight, Democrat leaders over the past week have taken to urging their supporters to vote in person. Here’s AOC as an example:

Remember, it was just a couple of weeks ago that the entirety of the Democrat/Media Axis of Propaganda was focused on brainwashing voters to believe that the China Virus made it just too darn dangerous to vote in person. So, what’s changed?

Well, what’s changed is that the scam has been exposed for what it is, and the GOP has geared itself up to police the vote-counting process, especially in Democrat-controlled states and counties. Thus, the party is now suddenly urging its voters to get out and vote in person.

Make no mistake about it, though, the Democrats will still do everything they can to steal elections via “vote harvesting” wherever leftwing judges have ignored existing laws to claim it is “legal”, as has happened in Pennsylvania and Michigan. But the GOP and Trump Campaign have hired a raft of lawyers and poll workers to police those situations as well.

So, if you’ve been wondering why the “vote by-mail” intensity in the media has dropped off dramatically over the past 10 days or so, now you know.

Excuse the interruption there. Andrew Napolitano just came on “Morning With Maria” and I had to find the remote so I could switch channels.

Now, where was I?  – Oh, yeah, the riots. This sad event happened over the weekend in Portland, aka Riot City USA:

Tragic.

Meanwhile, the Democrat-sponsored riots raged on in the city:

One brave guy has had enough of the nonsense:

This was the scene in Philadelphia Sunday:

Meanwhile, the Emmy Awards show turned into the very predictable, literal dumpster fire we all knew it would be:

You just could never make this stuff up, folks.

Joe Biden Couldn’t Care Less About the Military and NetFlix is Promoting Pedophilia

Lyin’ Joe Biden strikes again. – The corrupt news media is of course ignoring it, but Creepy Uncle McWifeMolester earlier this week claimed that thousands of U.S. military members have died from the China Virus. The real number is considerably lower than that. As in, the real number is actually a single digit.

From a report at the Washington Examiner:

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden claimed the military has suffered thousands of deaths due to the coronavirus, but government data shows only seven service members have died.

“Military COVID infected: 118,984,” Biden said during an event in Warren, Michigan, this week. “Military COVID deaths: 6,114.”

Department of Defense data shows there have been just 40,026 cases of the coronavirus within the military and seven deaths.

Biden’s campaign quickly addressed the numbers, saying the former vice president mixed up Michigan coronavirus statistics with the military.

[End]

Biden’s corrupt, elder-abusing handlers quickly responded by claiming that their Unfrozen Caveman candidate had messed up by confusing the numbers for Michigan with those of the military he claims to love and respect. But does that explanation really help to clean anything up?

It seems to me that that explanation actually tells us several things about Biden, none of which say anything good about him:

  • It tells us that Gropey Joe McNastyFinger actually cares so little about the military that he can’t be bothered to keep up with the reality of how this pandemic is impacting their personnel;
  • It tells us that Biden, who loves to go around slamming Trump for not caring about the pandemic cares so little about it himself that he hasn’t any clue what the real numbers look like; and
  • It tells us that all this national poster child for creeping dementia does nothing at his events but read script from his handy TelePrompter, and he doesn’t even do that particularly well.

This man is a national disgrace and a menace to our nation’s survival as a free republic. He must be defeated in November.

Speaking of creepy politicians… – Carly Fiornia, the mousiest woman in politics, appeared on Fox Business’s “Mornings with Maria” this morning. Fiorina told host Maria Bartiromo that she’s voting for Joe Biden this year because she doesn’t like President Trump’s “style.”

In her very next breath, Fiorina also said that “I disagree with Joe Biden on everything.”

This is the insanity of #NeverTrump fake conservatives.
BEYONCE AND JAY Z FACEBOOK MEMES: THE MOVIE

The Democrat/media Axis of Propaganda already has its next anti-Trump hoax in the queue. – This one will be coming from Obama loyalist and former National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster, who did everything he could to undermine President Trump and implant dozens of Deep State embeds into the NSA staff during his months in that job:

Set for a September 22 release, it will come along about the time the Bob Woodward hoax has fully run its course. If this surprises you, you have not been paying attention.

The perverts who run NetFlix are attempting to normalize pedophilia. – Just in time to try to get Bill Clinton off the Jeffrey Epstein hook, the corrupt news/entertainment media are trying to convince you that opposition to adult sex with children is somehow a bad thing.

The latest shoe to drop in this effort is the new film from the evil slime at NetFlix titled “Cuties.” Their fellow evil slime at the UK Telegraph today are lecturing this film’s critics as being “terrified of child sexuality”:

To any normal American with functioning synapses, being against sexualizing our children is a good thing. But make no mistake about it: The people who populate our news media and entertainment industry today are anything but normal Americans. Their own community is filled with aggressive pedophiles in high places of authority and they are doing everything they can to brainwash you into thinking you are somehow abnormal for being repulsed by them.

You are not abnormal. You should be repulsed by the things these monsters do to children.

That is all.

The Steele Sub-Source Revelation Shows How Complex John Durham’s Job Really Is

If you’ve been wondering what all the hullabaloo over the weekend about the Steele Dossier and Christopher Steele’s “sub-source” was all about, and why it’s important, let me try to explain it to you:

First, why it’s important:

It’s important because the Steele Dossier was used by the Obama FBI, led by James Comey, as pretty much the sole support for securing FISA warrants allowing it to spy on the Trump Campaign. Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok and all the rest lied to the FISA court by characterizing the Dossier, Steele himself, and Steele’s unidentified “sub-source” as being reliable and credible, and “Russia-based.”

Those were all outright, bald-faced lies.

The FBI also withheld the fact that Steele’s work was funded by the Pantsuit Princess campaign and the Democrat National Committee. The FISA judges never heard that from the FBI or the DOJ, and only learned about it through the efforts of good men like Congressman Devin Nunes, who risked their political careers and their lives to get that information out onto the public record.

Now to the sub-source:

Last week, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe declassified documents that revealed the identity of Steele’s “sub-source,” i.e., the guy who basically fed all him all of the unsubstantiated rumors and fantasies that make up his Dossier.

That guy’s name is Igor Danchenko. Mr. Danchenko is a former Russian national, but has been a resident in the United States for many years. Thus, he is not at all “Russia-based.”

Oh.

But it gets better. It turns out that Danchenko worked for many years at the leftist Brookings Institution think tank, a favorite of Obama’s, one that provided “research” support for most of Obama’s god-awful policies.

Oh.

But it gets even better than that. It also turns out that Danchenko worked closely with a woman named Fiona Hill, a so-called “Russia expert,” and co-authored a paper with her when they were both working at Brookings during 2016.

You may remember Ms. Hill as an Obama-plant employee at the National Council who served as one of the key “witnesses” at last year’s impeachment farce hearings. Ms. Hill was hired into the NSC by the evil H.R. McMaster, who became President Trump’s National Security Advisor after the FBI successfully framed General Mike Flynn.

Oh.

But it gets even better than all of that, if you can believe it. Here’s an excerpt from a report by John Solomon at JustTheNews.com:

In addition, the president of the Brookings Institution — former Clinton administration figure Strobe Talbott — contacted Steele early in the Russia collusion probe and requested a copy of his dossier to share with Obama administration officials, according to Steele’s recent testimony in a British lawsuit.

“I remember taking a phone call from him, your Lordship, earlier in the summer, in which he said that he was aware that I had — he spoke in fairly cryptic terms, but he was aware that we had material of relevance to the U.S. election,” Steele testified in March in  the British lawsuit.

Steele claimed Talbott learned about his dossier work from either former National Security Adviser Susan Rice or former Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland. Rice’s spokesman has denied having such contact about the dossier. Nuland acknowledged knowing about Steele’s dossier in July 2016 and claimed she directed her staff to send the former MI-6 agent to the FBI.

“Although he didn’t state it explicitly, one or either or both of them had briefed him on the work we had been doing,” Steele testified.

[End]

Oh.

But – and I’m not kidding here – it gets even better than that. More from the John Solomon report:

Talbott’s brother-in-law, Cody Shearer, distributed his own anti-Trump Russia dossier in September 2016, according to evidence released by Congress and the DOJ inspector general. It included some of the same allegations as those in Steele’s.

And then in early 2017 Talbott provided a copy of the Steele dossier to Hill after she started working inside the Trump National Security Council, according to Hill’s impeachment testimony. Hill admitted she met multiple times with Steele in 2016.

[Devin] Nunes told Fox News’ Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo that he is opening a “full-blown” probe into the role Brookings and its figures played with Steele and the entire Russia episode.

“People may remember the president of Brookings back in 2016, we know that he had given the dossier to a few people, we had that through testimony,” Nunes explained. “You also may remember that the State Department was involved and there were additional dossiers that weren’t the Steele dossiers, except that they mirrored the Steele dossiers.”

[End]

So, we now see this web of lies, deceit and outright treason now implicating a major leftist think tank and winding its way deep into the Trump National Security Council thanks to McMaster’s betrayal.

Unwinding all of this is a massive, Herculean task, and the man assigned with that task by William Barr is U.S. Attorney John Durham. So, if you’re wondering why it is taking awhile for Durham to get to the part of his work that involves perp-walks and indictments, well, it should be starting to become more clear to you now.

Barack Obama corrupted literally every institution of the federal government, and that corruption dominated the first two years of the Trump administration and lingers still, just 3 months before President Trump stands for re-election. That’s how deep and wide and completely ingrained it has become.

This is a cancer on our nation, and it is very important that Durham and Barr get all of it out. While it would certainly be gratifying for Durham to indict one of the big tumors – like, say Comey or John Brennan or even Strzok – if doing that imperils the goal of eradicating the metastasized cancer completely, then it wouldn’t be worth it.

We should give Durham and Barr the time to get it all out in one fell swoop. This cancer cannot be allowed to linger and grow again.

That is all.

Why Paul Sperry’s Outing Of the Whistleblower, Eric Ciaramella, Is Important

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

The media wall of conspiratorial silence has been breached. – The identity of the fake “whistleblower” who conspired with Adam Schiff and his staff to serve as the kicking-off point for the Democrat/media-driven impeachment scam has been widely known for weeks now. It has been so widely known, in fact, that Paul Sperry, in his revelatory report on RealClearInvestigations, said this:

“… a handful of former colleagues have compiled a roughly 40-page research dossier on him. A classified version of the document is circulating on Capitol Hill, and briefings have been conducted based on it. One briefed Republican has been planning to unmask the whistleblower in a speech on the House floor.

“On the Internet, meanwhile, Ciaramella’s name for weeks has been bandied about on Twitter feeds and intelligence blogs as the suspected person who blew the whistle on the president. The mainstream media are also aware of his name.”

Yet, despite the broad knowledge of Ciaramella’s identity as the leaker – that’s really all he is – the fake news media has been so intimately complicit in the impeachment scam that literally every major outlet has played along with the pretense that he somehow deserves protection under a “whistleblower” law that doesn’t even apply to accusations made against any sitting president. As an arm of RealClearPolitics, a news aggregation site whose average of polls is regularly cited by every major news organization on a daily basis, RealClearInvestigations is in fact a part of the mainstream media and thus became the first to break through that solid wall of conspiratorial media silence Wednesday night.

“Everyone knows who he is. CNN knows. The Washington Post knows. The New York Times knows. Congress knows. The White House knows. Even the president knows who he is,” said Fred Fleitz, a former CIA analyst.

While conservative websites like The Gateway Pundit and The Conservative Treehouse revealed the leaker’s likely identity weeks ago, it was important for a mainstream media outlet to break through that conspiratorial wall in order to deny the ability of Democrat activist outlets to claim Ciaramella’s identity was somehow “confidential.” That excuse is now gone, although most of those outlets – including the increasingly swampy Fox News – continue to refuse to report the story this morning.

Make no mistake about it, that wall of conspiratorial silence constituted a direct assault not just on President Donald Trump, whose presidency is threatened by the false accusations made by this deep state functionary, but on the American people and their right to know who and what is behind all of this. The thought that the 2016 presidential election could be overturned based on accusations made by an accuser who would never be confronted by the accused or even identified to the public is the most un-American concept ever devised by political minds.

The utter mendacity behind that scheme becomes crystal clear now that we know who this guy really is:

– Ciaramella is a long-time associate of senior staff for Adam Schiff;

– Ciaramella has worked at various times for John Brennan, Susan Rice, Joe Biden and other Democrat skunks;

– In 2015 and 2016, Ciaramella worked on Ukraine policy with Biden and never raised a peep of alarm over Biden and his son’s obvious influence-peddling operation there;

– He was an Obama holdover on the initial Trump NSC staff, led by deep state snake H.R. McMaster, serving there until mid-2017 when he was revealed to be a serial leaker of classified information;

– While working at the NSC, Ciaramella was in fact instrumental in creating the false “Putin fired Comey” narrative that helped create the rationale for appointing a special counsel;

– Instead of being fired on the spot, McMaster intervened on his behalf and sent him to work at the CIA;

– Ciaramella was not on the July 25 call between President Trump and Ukraine President Zelensky, and has zero first-hand knowledge of anything that was said on that call;

– All of the allegations made in his false “whistleblower” complaint come from second-and-third-hand hearsay accounts, with much of it very likely coming from fellow deep state functionary Alexander Vindman, who is most likely the second fake whistleblower in this impeachment scam.

Ciramella is, in other words, the classic example of the sort of anti-American deep state functionaries who remain embeded throughout the federal bureaucracy, especially in our intelligence community, Department of Justice and at the State Department. Obama literally filled our government with this kind of disloyal hack, people who have no respect whatsoever for our nation’s electoral process, and who place their their political ideology above the good of the country.

No wonder Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi and the disloyal hacks who infest our national news media outlets were so desperate to keep his identity a secret. Paul Sperry and the editors at RealClearInvestigations deserve medals for breaching that wall of conspiratorial silence.

That is all.

Will John Bolton Fix the Leaky Valve at the NSC?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Man, another slow news day – having a hard time finding anything to write about.  Lessee here…

Down goes McMaster!  Down goes McMaster!  Down goes McMaster! – General H.R. McMaster, who has run the leaky valve we call the National Security Council (NSC) for the past 13 months, was finally, at long last given his walking papers on Thursday.  The move comes after the latest in a long series of major, embarrassing leaks that most likely came from either the General or his staff earlier this week.

That leak came when the substance of the President’s call with Vladimir Putin – including Trump’s congratulation on his fake election win, a matter of simple courtesy that was also extended by Barack Obama in 2012 – was leaked to the press, along with briefing notes compiled by the NSC advising Mr. Trump not to offer such congratulations.  The leak, as so many emanating from the NSC before it had been, was designed to embarrass President Trump, and it appears the POTUS had finally had enough.

The White House put out a statement late Wednesday that characterized this leak as “likely illegal” and promised to fire the person or persons responsible for it.  About 17 hours later, H.R. McMaster was starting the process of hunting for another job.  Hey, don’t feel sorry for him – he will no doubt have his pick of gigs at CNN, MSNBC, the Washington Post and the New York Times, fake media outlets that love to reward the hands that feed them.

In a tweet issued to announce the firing, President Trump thanked the 3-star General and said he would “always remain my friend.”  So, obviously, the President wants to create as little controversy as possible around the McMaster ouster.  It will be interesting to see if the White House is ever able to identify anyone else responsible for the leak of the Putin conversation, and if bringing in a new National Security Advisor has the effect of tamping down the leaks going forward.  Because with a “security council” like this, well, who needs it?

To replace McMaster, Trump named Bush-era UN Ambassador and noted neo-con John Bolton, so he’s replacing a liberal globalist Susan Rice fan with a very conservative war hawk who tends to favor U.S. intervention all over the world.  Appearing on Fox News shortly after his hiring had been announced, Bolton joked that, to get the job, “I promised not to start any wars.”  I’m not really sure that’s funny.

Whatever, Bolton will be a huge upgrade if he just doesn’t engage in the habit of leaking classified information to the nearest fake reporter.

Hey, guess which students are very predictably on the cover of the new issue of Time Magazine? – If you said “Parkland students,” you are partially right.  The fully correct answer, of course, is “a handful of Parkland students who are anti-2nd amendment and being manipulated by a bunch of leftwing anti-gun groups,” you are fully correct.

Because, of course, only the brainwashed children who want to take your rights away fit the anti-gun narrative the fake news media and Democrat Party have pushed for the last 50 years.  So tiresome.

Hey, remember those DACA “kids” (average age: 26)? Remember how I told you way back in December that the Democrat Party would never, never, never, ever agree to any sort of deal on their situation because they want to keep that issue alive through election day in November?  Yeah, we had another example of the truth of that overnight.

In the wee hours of the morning, the U.S. Senate – the most useless deliberative body on earth – approved yet another continuing resolution to fund the government, this time through the end of the fiscal year on September 30.  It is an utter, complete, total disgrace of a bill, a budget-busting monstrosity that not only continues funding for every leftwing priority but increases the money for most of them, a total capitulation by the Republicans in which pretty much the only thing that isn’t funded in any real way is increased border security and a border wall.  Thank you, Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell.

Wait.  The other thing this “compromise” (read: Republican capitulation) bill doesn’t have in it is any sort of “fix” for those poor, poor “Dreamers”.  Golly, nobody could have seen that coming.

The two happiest people in the nation’s capital this morning are San Fran Nan and Chuck Schumer, who are no doubt hung over from all those toasts they were drinking during the night to Ryan, McConnell and the rest of the shameful establishment wing of the GOP.

If you are searching for the reason why Republicans hate Republicans, this bill is pretty much your Holy Grail.

Just another day in establishment Republicans selling out America.

That is all.

The New York Times: All the #FakeNews That Fits

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Warning:  If Everything is Sexist, Nothing is Sexist. – House Democrat Caucus leader Joe Crowley told reporters on Thursday that efforts by Republican congressional candidates to tie their Democrat challengers to House Sepaker San Fran Nan are “sexist.”  Crowley did not offer any explanation as to why Republicans criticizing the obviously incompetent, disgraceful Pelosi is sexist, but Democrat efforts to demonize every Republican woman on the face of the earth is not, and of course none of the fake journalists present would have dared to pose one of their Democrat heroes a followup question asking for more information.

But the reason behind Crowley’s statement is obvious:   Democrats know that their doddering Majority Leader is their biggest handicap in the mid-term elections.  They realize that it’s worth several percentage points to every GOP candidate to use images of her and clips from her outrageous statements in their campaign ads, so their plan is to declare Republicans as being sexist for doing so.  It’s just part of the Democrats’ Saul Alinsky-driven playbook.

Somewhere in India, the Pantsuit Princess is berating Huma Abedin for nothing thinking of this racket first. – The UK Daily Mail reports that swamp skunk former FBI Director James Comey is about to embark on a nationwide tour promoting his new book, and he will be holding promotional events to which attendees must fork over $97 per ticket.  I swear I didn’t make that up.  Obviously, there are too many Americans who are really, really hard up for entertainment.  Someone should tell them about Netflix.

Speaking of the Fainting Felon, it turns out that “sprained hand” reported on Thursday was actually a fractured wrist.  The Grasping Grifter injured the wrist when she she slipped in the bathtub in her hotel room in the city of Jodhpur, according to reports.  If you’re interested, here’s a photo of the marble-cased tub, courtesy of the Daily Mail:

The Cackling Crank is obviously not staying at the Holiday Inn Express while on her India tour.  That’s for those “Deplorables” out there in flyover country.

The Washington Post is reporting that President Trump has definitely decided to get rid of National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster, so I guess McMaster will survive after all.  I mean, it’s the WaPo, which has filed almost as many false reports based on confidential “sources” as the New York Times over the last few years related to Trump.

According to the WaPo, former UN Ambassador John Bolton is Trump’s first choice to fill the job, but the Post also rolls out the names of National Security Council member Joseph “Keith” Kellogg and current White House Homeland Security Adviser Tom Bossert as potential replacements.

It’s interesting to note that White House spokesman Sarah Huckabee Sanders denied the WaPo report late Thursday evening via Twitter:

One would hope the President wouldn’t leave his press spokesman hanging out to dry like this, but it wouldn’t be the first time that happened, so we’ll just have to see how the day goes.

And speaking of fake reporting by fake news media outlets… – In case you missed it, Clinton shill Maggie Haberman and some other fake reporter at the New York Times named Michael Schmidt issued a breathless report on Thursday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has subpoenaed records from the Trump Organization.  Oh, my word!  Dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria!

Folks, the Trump Organization has been responding to and complying with Mueller’s subpoenas for records since last Summer, when such activity was reported by the NYTimes and other fake news outlets.  In fact, yesterday’s story quotes Alan Futerfas, who is a lawyer with the Trump Organization, as saying the following:   “Since July 2017, we have advised the public that the Trump Organization is fully cooperative with all investigations, including the special counsel, and is responding to their requests. This is old news and our assistance and cooperation with the various investigations remains the same today.”

This is not just “old news,”, is not news at all.  What it is is an effort by the Times – and the unidentified criminal leakers in the Mueller team – to keep the Trump/Russia collusion fantasy on the front page of its fake newspaper.  In fact, Haberman and Schmidt can’t even attribute this story directly to those leakers – their attribution instead is to “two people briefed on the matter,” which could be a couple of guys who, over drinks with one of the Mueller flunkies at the Old Ebbitt Grill, heard the flunkie say “yeah, we tossed out another subpoena to the Trump Organization yesterday.”  Seriously, it could mean almost anything.

Haberman/Schmidt’s big “hook” in their fake story is this passage:   “The Trump Organization has said that it never had real estate holdings in Russia, but witnesses recently interviewed by Mr. Mueller have been asked about a possible real estate deal in Moscow.”   So, because some witnesses have been “asked” by Mueller’s Clinton/Obama-shill lawyers about a “possible real estate deal in Moscow,” Haberman/Schmidt want the reader to think this is somehow evidence of Trump “collusion” with Russia.

Note what that passage does not say:  It does not say that even a single witness has confirmed any Trump real estate deal in Moscow, or how, even if such a deal did take place years ago, that would in any way lead to a joint effort between the Trump Campaign and Vladimir Putin to influence the outcome of the 2016 election.

The Haberman/Schmidt story is the very definition of FAKE NEWS.  It is nothing more than an attempt to dress up old news as new news in order to try to influence public opinion against the current President of the United States.  It’s a disgrace to journalism, but then, it is the New York Times, so that pretty much goes without saying these days.

Just another day in Fake News America.

In Trump World, a Cabinet Appointment is a Temp Job

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Spoiled high school children across the country skipped class on Wednesday to go pretend to know something about guns and gun control policy.  It was, like, totally rad, and of course Democrat politicians around the country exploited the kids’ acting out to make political points.  San Fran Nan, Chuck Schumer and the execrable New York Governor Andrew Cuomo all made anti-gun speeches to groups of students while surrounded by security guards armed with…wait for it…you know what’s coming…guns!  None of the kids noticed the irony in that, mainly because pretty much none of them know what irony is, but they did get to ditch chem lab or PE, so they were all happy.

Tired of all this Winning yet? – President Donald Trump announced yesterday that he will bring in economist and long-time CNBC news host Larry Kudlow to replace Gary Cohn as his chief economic advisor.  Kudlow was also an economic advisor to Ronald Reagan, and, with the exception of import tariffs, is a strong supporter of the Trump economic agenda, and the Trump “put America first” presidency in general.  He will be a huge upgrade over Cohn, a liberal globalist who would have been far more in his natural habitat working in a Clinton administration.  Thank God he didn’t get the chance.

With the President having already replaced Rex Tillerson and Gary Cohn this week, it is obvious he is intent on re-molding his cabinet into a group that is more on-board with his agenda rather than their own.  This is now leading to rumor-mongering among the fake journalist set.  Rumors are now flying that Mr. Trump will also replace Attorney General Jeff Sessions and National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster before the week is out.

The problem with those rumors is that they are coming from Vanity Fair, the NYTimes’ Clinton flunky Maggie Haberman and CNN’s pathetic Jim Acosta, several of the fakest fake news sources in business today.  So there is maybe a 50/50 chance there is anything to them.

The rumor about McMaster does seem most credible.  The General is a pure globalist, a liberal who was hired very quickly after the Mike Flynn firing last February, and is very likely one of the main sources of ongoing leaks coming from the White House.  McMaster is the clown who was responsible for extending the top secret clearances of Susan Rice and other Obama-era skunks long after they had left office, much to the chagrin of the President.

Former U.N. Ambassador in the Bush Administration John Bolton is the most likely replacement for McMaster.  The problem with Bolton is that he is a war-mongering neo-con, but at least there would be no doubt about where his loyalties lay, and he would not be a leaking problem.

Where Sessions is concerned, this is one we should believe when we see it.  Given that the rumors, if they aren’t just being made up out of whole cloth, likely come from someone in the White House who hates Sessions, it could be just one more example of fake news mongering.  Scott Pruitt, the rumored replacement for Sessions, would be a fabulous Attorney General, and unlike Sessions, would not be stupidly and unnecessarily recused from exercising oversight over Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

The problem there is that Pruitt has also been fabulous at EPA, where he has been aggressively reforming that out-of-control agency back to its statutory purpose of actually working to protect the environment after eight years of working to kill the national economy.  Putting someone else in charge over there, no matter who it might be, would necessarily place the progress achieved under Pruitt to this point at risk.

The other cabinet officials rumored to be in some jeopardy are VA Secretary David Shulkin  and Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson.  Shulkin definitely needs to be gotten rid of, as he has been a walking, talking crap show in the job since day one.  Not only has he utterly failed to implement desperately-needed reforms at the VA, his personal behavior while in the job has resulted in a steady stream of negative press.

One problem:  Trump’s preferred candidate for this job, Energy Secretary Rick Perry, let it be known yesterday that he’s not really interested in taking on the intractable VA problems (who in their right mind would be at this point?), so Mr. Trump is going to have to find another candidate.

Carson has been similarly lackluster in his job performance at HUD, and also produced an embarrassment to the Administration a few weeks ago by spending gobs of money on unnecessarily fancy furniture and other accessories that don’t really belong in government offices.  There’s no real pressing emergency where Carson’s concerned – he just hasn’t turned out to be the right guy for that particular job.

In any event, we should all expect more cabinet shake-ups in the coming days, maybe before the day is out.  In fact, we should expect this to be an ongoing dynamic in this presidency.  This sort of churning of senior staff has been a feature in Trump’s business dealings, and there is no reason to expect his presidency to be any different.  The best way to look at these cabinet appointments is as temp jobs.

Just another day in it’s Donald Trump’s world and we’re just living in it America.

That is all.

Sebastian Gorka is Gone, But the Trump Agenda Rolls Along

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Deputy National Security Advisor Sebastian Gorka resigned late Friday, leaving behind a plaintive, drama-filled letter of resignation.  The letter is fairly long, but this passage neatly encapsulates its sentiments: “[G]iven recent events, it is clear to me that forces that do not support the MAGA promise are – for now – ascendant within the White House.  As a result, the best and most effective way I can support you, Mr. President, is from outside the People’s House.” So, Dr. Gorka is the latest of the original set of Trump advisors to be forced out of the White House by Chief of Staff John Kelly and National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster.  But don’t worry about the good doctor:  in its own report on the resignation, Breitbart notes that it is currently negotiating a deal to bring him on staff as a commentator.  He won’t be going hungry anytime soon.
  • Don’t get me wrong here – I like Dr. Gorka and have always found him to be an astute analyst of the problem of Islamic terrorism.  As such, I’d much rather have him in the White House than outside of it.  But President Trump has made his choices for who his senior advisors will be, and has clearly gone with the Generals.  These generals serve at the pleasure of the President, so if Mr. Trump were unhappy with the many staff changes that have taken place since General Kelly assumed his new position, he’d have full power to stop them.  That that hasn’t happened tells us all we need to know.
  • Mr. Gorka’s letter also contains the following ominous sentence:  “The fact that those who drafted and approved the speech [on the situation in Afghanistan] removed any mention of Radical Islam or radical Islamic terrorism proves that a crucial element of your presidential campaign has been lost.”  This is nonsense, a sentence Mr. Gorka no doubt drafted in a fit of pique.  The fact that the speech did not include the utterance of either of those phrases does not at all mean that the President has lost focus on eradicating ISIS, Al Qaeda and the Taliban, or on punishing nations like Pakistan that harbor those and other Islamic terrorist groups.  The U.S. military campaign to eradicate ISIS continues to produce excellent results, and the President, in his speech, gave his generals explicit authority to step up the campaign on Al Qaeda and the Taliban.
  • Indeed, despite the exit in recent weeks of several “Trump loyalists” (as the fake media describes them) during August, there is no noticeable corresponding let-up in the Trump agenda.  This week we have seen the President pardon Sheriff Joe Arpaio, reversing a kangaroo court ruling by an outlaw left wing judge; threaten to shut down the government if he doesn’t get funding for the border wall; order General James Mattis to indefinitely suspend recruitment of trans-genders into the military forces; and prepare paperwork necessary to end DACA, yet another Obama-era open borders program.
  • Those are just the high-profile items that the fake news media has made a big deal of.  There continue to be dozens of administration initiatives taking place under the radar to reorganize inefficient bureaucracies, rescind or rewrite horrible Obama-era regulations – like EPA’s heinous “Waters of the U.S.” power grab – and fire or isolate disloyal apparatchiks at various agencies.
  • This has been the story of the Trump Administration for seven months now:  While the fake news media focuses on sensational stories like Russia Collusion, Charlottesville riots and Civil War statue removals, the Administration’s senior leadership continues to execute revolutionary changes in the way the government functions while flying underneath the media radar.
  • So don’t worry about Sebastian Gorka.  He’ll be just fine.  Like Steve Bannon, he may well be a more effective advocate for Trump policies at Breitbart than from within the White House, as his own letter states.  Meanwhile, the Trump agenda continues to move forward.  Hey, maybe these generals are “Trump loyalists”, too.  Just a thought.

Just another day in White House revolving door America.

That is all.

The President Should, But Won’t, Declare Antifa A Terrorist Organization

Today’s Campaign Update 

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Terrorism comes in many names.  “Antifa” is one of them. – An interesting, though little-noticed, item related to the fascist hate group “Antifa” (which ironically is a contraction for ‘Anti-Fascist’) story is developing as a part of the White House on-line petitioning process that was created by the Obama Administration.  This petition demands that the Trump Administration formally recognize Antifa as a terrorist organization, which it clearly and unambiguously is.  “AntiFa has earned this title due to its violent actions in multiple cities and their influence in the killings of multiple police officers throughout the United States,” the petition reads in part.
  • The process requires that such petitions obtain 100,000 signatures of support from U.S. citizens within 30 days of their filing.  This Antifa-related petition was filed last Thursday, meaning it received the necessary support in less than four days.  So, obviously there is a great deal of interest in and support for this effort, most of it probably concentrated among Donald Trump’s voter base.
  • It will be interesting to observe how the White House responds to this petition – and the rules for this process do require such a response whenever any petition reaches the critical mass of support.  There is no doubt at all that Antifa is indeed a domestic terrorist organization.  Its’ spokespeople, such as they are, bragged about being exactly that in interviews on NBC and CNN this past week, claiming their strategy is to “commit violence in order to create peace,” a statement so laughably nonsensical that only NBC’s Chuck Todd and the peabrain on-air talent at CNN could listen to it without openly laughing.  This group commits violence wherever it shows its ugly, masked face, beating opponents with baseball bats laced with nails, spraying people and police alike with pepper spray and mace and urine, and wantonly burning buildings and destroying public and private property alike.  Committing violence for shock value is the very definition of terrorism.
  • Don’t hold your breath waiting for this to happen. –  President Trump’s team of advisors will no doubt counsel him not to take this step because it would be “divisive” (I can hear H.R. McMaster saying those words as I type this), and out of fear of incurring negative media coverage, as if this President ever gets anything else from the fake news media.
  • Still, if nothing else, this puts the President and his advisors on the spot and at least forces them to focus on the question.  It will also force Mr. Trump to clearly recognize those among his advisors who counsel him to avoid doing what he clearly knows is the right thing to do under the law.  Antifa clearly is a domestic terrorist organization and is quite proud of that fact.  Coddling and placating them will only make them bolder.
  • What in the hell is going on with our Navy? – For the third time since May, a U.S. war ship has collided with a gigantic merchant vessel in open waters off of the Asian continent.  The Navy has announced the collision of the USS John McCain was the result of “poor seamanship”, and that this poor seamanship has resulted in ten sailors being missing at sea.  Rescue operations are underway, and we should all pray for their survival.
  • I never served in the Navy, but it is honestly baffling to me how these events can happen with modern warships.  We are long past the days of ships having to rely on such things as bells and horns to signal ships’ presence at night or in heavy fogs.  These ships are equipped with millions of dollars worth of radars, sonars and global positioning technology.  How they can miss the presence of an oil tanker in their proximity is almost beyond comprehension.
  • The previous two incidents have been followed with the usual perfunctory military inquiry followed by unsatisfying official statements.  This third incident in four months demands an official, formal investigation into the whole series of events.  One such incident can be explained as a simple accident; two as mere coincidence; but three, as they say, is a pattern, and this pattern is getting U.S. Navy personnel killed at a disturbing rate.  Time to find out why.

Just another day in poor seamanship America.

That is all.
