Wednesday News Roundup: Something Awful Has Been Unleashed On Our Country

As you watch the clip below, remember that projection – accusing the opposition of that which you are yourself guilty – is the favorite tactic of the political left:

That’s all you need to know about that.

You’ve all heard about that Jerry Seinfeld series called “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee”? – Well, looks like there’s a new reality show called “Two Disgusting Old Hags Getting Drunk and Talking Russia”:

You can’t go to the inauguration today. – But don’t worry, because depraved celebrities will be there to represent all you little people and your interests!

There. Doesn’t that make you feel better about the DC Swamp having been turned into a police state for this fake inauguration?

*sigh*

Hey, the corrupt news-fakers at CNN will be there to serve as your watchdog on the Biden/Harris administration too. – Oh, wait, no they won’t:

My goodness. The comparison by Glenn Greenwald to North Korea’s state-run media is perfectly apt, given the fascist nature of the government taking over the country today.  Soon enough, independent voices like Greenwald’s will likely be silenced as the destruction of the first amendment and its protections accelerates.

Did Cocaine Mitch blackmail President Trump on the question of pardoning Julian Assange? – That’s the not-so-shocking allegation Tucker Carlson made last night in an opening monologue that sums Mitch McConnell up in a nutshell. Carlson, based on unnamed sources, accused McConnell of basically blackmailing the President by threatening GOP support for convicting him in this latest impeachment scam should he choose to pardon the WikiLeaks founder. If true, it would be a scandal of epic proportions if America had anything resembling an independent and functioning news media establishment.

But of course, America doesn’t have that anymore.

From a story at RedState.com:

During his opening monologue on Tuesday evening, Carlson made a case for pardoning Assange and former CIA agent John Kiriakou. Both men face harsh punishments for their part in revealing classified information. “Julian Assange and John Kiriakou both went to jail for telling the truth,” Carlson insisted. “Neither one stole classified documents from the US government. Neither one of them hacked into anything.”

The Fox host continued: “Julian Assange told you a lot about what the US government was doing abroad and told you everything about what the DNC was doing to rig its own primaries back in 2016.”

Carlson then explained why Kiriakou should be given clemency. “John Kiriakou, meanwhile, told the truth about what our military and our intel agencies were doing during the Iraq war. Again, you may not agree with his position, but what he said was true,” he noted.

The host alleged that McConnell threatened Trump, telling him that the Senate is more likely to convict him in the upcoming impeachment trial if he pardoned Assange.

Carlson said:

We’re hearing tonight that neither man, particularly Julian Assange, and we don’t know if this is true, is likely to get a pardon. Why? Apparently because Republicans in the Senate, and by Republicans in the Senate we mean Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the leader of Republicans in the Senate, has sent word over to the White House: If you pardon Julian Assange, we are much more likely to convict you in an impeachment trial.

“Now is it legal to hold that over a President’s head?” Carlson asked. “We’re not lawyers, we don’t know, it’s certainly wrong. But more than that, it tells you everything about their priorities.”

Carlson continued: “What is Mitch McConnell, your designated defender in the United States Senate worrying about? He’s worrying about protecting the uniparty in Washington. Not his party, his party and the Democrat Party, in Permanent Washington.”

[End]

Yes, exactly. As I’ve pointed out multiple times in recent weeks, the UniParty is back in control of the Swamp, and protecting its priorities and interests is now paramount for both the Democans and Republicrats who infest it.

Assange was not included among the many pardons issued by the President last night, despite rampant rumors that he would be.

Then again, neither was the Tiger King, Joe Exotic, whose lawyers were so confident of a pardon that they had a stretch limousine waiting outside the prison in which the reality TV star is being held. It seems doubtful that Cocaine Mitch had anything to do with that decision.

Speaking of Tucker Carlson, if you missed his monologue on Monday night, you really should go read it at the link below, because it perfectly sums up what is happening in Washington, DC today: A massive and unprecedented show of military might by an incoming fascist regime.

Here is an excerpt from that monologue:

Our capital city is currently under military occupation. By Inauguration Day, there are expected to be more than 26,000 armed federal troops in Washington. No living American has seen a moment like the one we’re watching now.

For comparison, Lyndon Johnson sent a total of 13,600 federal troops and D.C. Army National Guardsmen to quell the race riots in Washington that followed the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. Those riots injured hundreds of people and killed at least 13. In 1864, as the Civil War raged on the other side of the Potomac and Americans died every day in large numbers on the battlefield, there were fewer federal troops protecting Washington, D.C., than there are right now.

But according to our leaders, the so-called “insurrection” of Jan. 6 was much worse than any of that. So in response, they have assembled the largest military presence in Washington in all of American history during peacetime. It’s truly a national force, with Guardsmen from every state in the Union as well as Puerto Rico. The question is, why?

For decades, Washington, D.C., had the highest per-capita law enforcement presence in the country and one of the highest in the world. There was no need to fly in troops from Alaska to keep the city safe. But keeping the city safe is hardly the point of this exercise. The murder rate in the District of Columbia has risen with terrifying speed over the last six months. Men, women and children have been shot to death in the streets, but no one in charge seems to care about that or even notice. So no matter what they are telling you, those 26,000 federal troops are not there for your safety.

Instead, unmistakably, the Democratic Party is using those troops to send the rest of us a message about power: “We’re in charge now. We run this nation, from Honolulu to our colony in the Caribbean and everywhere in between, very much including where you and your family live. Do not question us men with guns. We control the Pentagon.” And indeed, they do.

Republicans have spent years ignoring the leftward drift of our officer corps, but we can’t ignore it now. The mask is off our military leadership. The very same generals who howled at the idea of deploying American troops to stop an invasion of our southern border sent tens of thousands of soldiers with rifles to Washington purely as a show of force on behalf of the political party they support. Once they did that, they allowed Democratic politicians to degrade and politicize the military itself.

On Monday, The Daily Beast, the home page of our highly credentialed but none-too-bright ruling class, ran a piece with this title: “Can U.S. Spy Agencies Stop White Terror?” Other countries, the story pointed out, have domestic spy agencies to fight extremists at home. So, of course, we need one right away. What the piece does not mention is that those other countries include China, North Korea, and Kazakhstan. Domestic spy agency is a not-very-subtle euphemism for secret police. That is what they’re calling for.

So how long will this cycle go on? If you’re hoping America will revert to normal on Wednesday afternoon after Joe Biden is sworn in as president, you are an optimist. You probably assumed the quarantines and mandatory face coverings were temporary, too. Something awful has been unleashed on our country. Unchecked, it will inevitably lead to more awful things.

God bless you all.

That is all.

Cirque du Trump: It’s the Greatest Show on Earth

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

I swear I do not make this stuff up. Who could? – You could never make it up – never in a million billion gazillion years.

I kid you not: The President of the United States of by-God America was asked by some doofus reporter yesterday evening if he was planning to pardon…wait for it…oh, you have to wait for this one…JOE freakin’ EXOTIC!!! Yes, this guy:

What life is like for Joe Exotic in jail

You don’t have to believe me, you only have to believe your lyin’ eyes and ears:

Reporter: These ratings hits, aside from these briefings, there’s a show that’s called “Tiger King,” and the man who’s the star of this is a former zoo owner who is serving a 22-year prison sentence. He’s asking you for a pardon, saying he was unfairly convicted. Your son yesterday jokingly said he was going to advocate for it. I was wondering if you’d seen the show and if you have any thoughts on it, pardoning Joe Exotic.

Trump: Which son? [smiling] Must be Don.

Reporter: It was.

Trump: [smiling] I had a feeling it was Don. Is that what he said? I don’t know, I know nothing about it. 22 years for what? What did he do?

Reporter: He allegedly hired someone to murder an animal rights activist. He said he didn’t do that and he was, uh…

Trump: You think he didn’t do it? Are you on his side?

Reporter: Well, I…

Trump: Are you recommending a pardon?

Reporter: Ah, no, I’m not advocating anything like that…

Trump: As a reporter, you’re not allowed to do that. You’d be criticized by these…[points at Acosta] Would you recommend a pardon?

Acosta: Uh, I’m not weighing in on Tiger King…

Trump: I wouldn’t think you would, I don’t think you would. Go ahead, you have a question. [To first reporter] I’ll take a look.

Acosta: I do like Joe Exotic [well, of course he does]

Trump: [Reporter on front row holds up an image of Joe Exotic on his I-phone] Is that Joe Exotic? That’s Joe Exotic?

Acosta: Uh, let me get back to the coronavirus, Mr. President.

Trump: Yeah.

[End]

It’s the Greatest Show on Earth, folks. We are truly blessed to live in this day and time.

Meanwhile, in other, less entertaining news… – President Trump has a new White House Press Secretary, not that it really matters.

In case you missed it – and you can certainly be excused for doing so – Stephanie Grisham, who barely ever showed her face before the media during her brief time in the job, went back to serving as press spokesman for First Lady Melania Trump on Tuesday. Stepping into the job of White House Press Secretary will now be Kayleigh McEnany, a longtime communications expert who has most recently been serving in a similar role for the Trump 2020 re-election campaign.

Kayleigh McEnany - Wikipedia

As polished as Ms. McEnany is as a spokesperson, you will likely not be seeing too much of her in this role, much like Ms. Grisham. This is not a criticism of either woman, both of whom are perfectly capable of handling the pack of hyenas who make up the White House press corps.

President Trump, after watching Sarah Huckabee Sanders being abused and smeared by these clowns for a year and a half, decided early last year to simply become his own spokesman, and turn the White House Press Secretary’s job into more of a role of herding the media cats.

That has been a brilliant and highly productive move. Trump has, without any question at all, since become the most accessible president in the nation’s history since making that transition, often holding multiple press availabilities each day. He been so accessible during the course of defending the nation against China’s Wuhan Virus attack that he now has the petulant creeps on MSNBC and CNN whining every day that he has become too accessible. I kid you not: The coordinated talking point among the cable TV talking heads on Tuesday and Wednesday was that “the President has hijacked these Task Force press briefings.”

Think about that: This President is now literally being accused by corrupt media personalities of “hijacking” his own damn press conferences.

That’s how good he is at dealing with these shameless nitwits. He has them so discombobulated that they are utterly incapable of hitting back in any non-hysterical way.

It’s a beautiful thing to watch. As the President himself would say, ‘it’s the most beautiful thing we’ve ever seen. Many people are talking about it being such a great thing. No one’s ever seen anything like it.’ And he’d be right.

Enjoy it while you can, and work hard to make sure you get to continue enjoying it for four more years.

That is all.
