The Monday News Roundup: Biden, Harris Lose Control of the Court Packing Narrative

When you’ve lost Jake Tapper, you’ve lost control of the narrative. – The Biden/Harris Harris/Biden campaign lost control of the narrative over packing the Supreme Court over the weekend. It obviously won’t last long, because their pals in the news media won’t allow it to do so, but Sunday was fun nonetheless.

Here is Mr. Tapper, actually having a moment of journalistic integrity with the Deputy Campaign Manager for the Biden/Harris Harris/Biden disinformation campaign, Kate Bedingfield:

Tapper began by pointing out that Biden, who had previously said that adding justices to the Supreme Court was “a bonehead idea,” was suddenly unwilling to answer the question.

“Biden opposes adding more justices to the Supreme Court, he has for decades, so why he is refusing to weigh in on it now?” Tapper asked.

“Because Donald Trump and the Republicans don’t get to set the terms of this debate,” Bedingfield replied, arguing that the question was a play to distract voters while they rushed the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett.

“It’s not the Trump people who invented this question, right?” Tapper asked. “The idea of adding justices to the Supreme Court came from the progressive side of the Democratic Party. It’s a simple question. He has long been against adding justices to the the court. Has he changed his mind or does he have the same position he’s had since 1983?”

Bedingfield pivoted again, saying again that it was an attempt by Republicans to distract from a nominee who would likely change the balance of the court. That Vice President Mike Pence had pushed the issue of court packing at last week’s debate was further proof of that, she concluded.

“This is a simple — it’s a simple question and it’s one frankly that Trump did not invent,” Tapper pushed back, saying again that the notion of court packing had originally come from progressives in the Democratic Party. “I thought odd when Vice President Biden said the other day in response to a reporter’s question that voters do not deserve an answer on this. Of course, voters deserve an answer on his position — on every issue.”

“But we are not going to play their game,” Bedingfield insisted. “He has given an answer. He has answered the question. He has probably answered this question 15 times over the course of the last week. The answer is I am not going to play Donald Trump’s game. I am not going to allow the terms of this debate to shift to a hypothetical that assumes, by the way, that we, the Democrats, are going to lose here. That is really — that is what at the core of this argument they are making. It assumes we are going to lose. Vice President Biden does not accept that. He does not accept that.”

“I think a serious policy question is not a game and I don’t think it’s Trump’s game, but Kate Bedingfield, we always appreciate you coming on the show and answering the questions or deftly side-stepping them,” Tapper gave up, ending the segment. “Thank you. Appreciate it.”

[End]

If you’re expecting Tapper to now bulldog this issue like he would if he was chasing a Republican, you should probably think again. Tapper has now done his pretend journalist-y thing, and will move immediately on to some other topic that is more favorable to Biden. That will allow Tapper to continue getting invited to all the nice cocktail parties in the DC Swamp. Because that’s how all of this works.

As I pointed out yesterday, Biden/Harris Harris/Biden obviously do plan to pack the court if they are elected. If they had no such plan, they would say so. Both of these people were selected by the Democrat power brokers for their willingness to do or say anything the radical left tells them to do and say. The radical left demands the court be packed, because that is the only way its plan to create a communist utopia in America can succeed.

Thus, Biden/Harris Harris/Biden will pack the court.

The only way to avoid that outcome is to re-elect Donald J. Trump. Simple.

Think this isn’t an important election? Think again. – Check out the names on Joe Biden’s short list for Attorney General:

The mass-killer of senior citizens Governor of New York; a former acting AG who was a participant in a coup d’etat on American soil; and a pathetic loser who has no real legal gravitas at all. That’s the list for AG. It’s almost enough to make you long for the days of Janet Reno.

Holy crap.

Pandemic? What pandemic? – I guess the Los Angeles Lakers must have closed out the low-rated NBA finals last night. So, how did the team’s fans celebrate? Why, by staging a mass gathering at the Staples Center and tossing rocks and bottles at police officers:

Love how the corrupt reporter describes the scene as “mostly peaceful.” Orwellian.

There is only one real question about the Amy Coney Barrett confirmation. – She’s been confirmed by the senate before, just 3 years ago. She is extremely well-qualified for the job, and everyone knows it. Absent some major scandal, her ultimate confirmation along the schedule Lindsey Graham has laid out is a fait accompli.

The only real question related to the hearings that begin today is, what fake scandal will the Democrats and their hand-maidens in the media concoct in an effort to try to derail Judge Barrett? Until we know that, the hearings themselves will be just a posturing, demagoguery opportunity for the Democrat members of the Judiciary Committee, including Kamala Harris, who began her disgusting posturing over the weekend by notifying Graham that she will participate remotely because it’s just too darn dangerous for her to show up in person.

What will that fake scandal be? Who knows? But you know something is in the works, and, with the committee’s process scheduled to end on Thursday, it will most likely break over next weekend in an effort to extend the committee process and thus delay the full senate vote.

So the timing is predictable. As for the nature of the inevitable smear, we will just have to wait and see what these evil people make up.

Stay tuned.

That is all.

Waiting for Barr and Durham: The 2020 Sequel to “Waiting For Godot”

Justice Department probe into Russia investigation could extend into late summer - CNNPolitics

In the last 48 hours we have discovered the following related to Spygate/Obamagate:

– The release of a series of text messages between multiple FBI personnel revealing that they knew the spying on the Trump campaign and efforts to frame General Mike Flynn were highly illegal and that they were so concerned about their own situations that they went out and purchased personal liability insurance policies in January, 2017;

– The revelation that the sub-source for Christopher Steele’s fake Dossier on Donald Trump was in fact a Russian agent and had been deemed by the freaking FBI itself as a “national security threat” as early as 2009. Despite this knowledge, James Comey and his FBI freak show allowed the Dossier to be used as the sole basis for no fewer than 4 fraudulent applications for FISA warrants to spy on the Trump Campaign, Transition Team and Administration;

– The fact that Hunter Biden, while his dear old Daddy was squiring him all over the world to peddle influence to various nefarious characters, received a wire transfer from the wife of the former Mayor of Moscow for $3.5 million and several other wires of several hundred thousand dollars each.

In the face of all of these revelations in a 48 hour period, our national news media yawns and continues to pretend that President Trump is the guy with a Russia problem.

It was in light of these revelations and the Democrat/media’s current “peaceful transfer of power” hoax that I wrote a piece on Thursday asking “When do we get Our Peaceful Transfer of Power for 2016?” because that is something we never received from Obama and his evil minions, who are still today running a shadow government operation designed to regain the presidency. Joe Biden is just the bumbling meat suit face of that effort.

The next question to ask is, when are any of the people involved in this never-ending coup d’etat effort going to be held accountable by William Barr, John Durham and the Department of Justice? We found out on Thursday that Durham did in fact take over the investigation of all the myriad crimes of the Clinton Foundation from do-nothing U.S. Attorney John Huber early this year, as has long been rumored. But, just as with his plodding Spygate and Obamagate investigation, we have seen no fruit from that effort, despite Barr’s promises that such fruit would be borne by the end of summer.

Oops. We are now three days past that deadline.

I had an email from a friend in DC last night saying that rumors are flying that something’s going to happen today. That would make some sense in a very DC Swampy kind of way, given that Fridays are traditionally the day when when the Swamp’s snakes and skunks love to make big news so it will dominate the Sunday talk shows. But we’ve heard those rumors many times before and have been let down each and every time. Waiting for John Durham to actually do something is like the old movie “Waiting for Godot”. We keep waiting, but Godot never arrives.

Meanwhile, we are about to have an election in less than 6 weeks and well over half of the country still does not know a thing about any of this thanks to the wall of silence by the corrupt national news media. The only way to break through that wall is for Durham and his investigators to start breaking down doors and performing some very public perp walks of high profile figures like Comey and Strzok and Brennan and Clapper, all of whom have become major TV stars over the past few years.

It would be like arresting the cast of “Love Island” – even the GenZ-ers would have to pay some attention here.

Sundance over at TheConservativeTreehouse posted a piece last night speculating that Barr and Durham have now decided that the political atmosphere has just become too toxic to add indictments into the mix. Thus, Sundance speculates that Barr is using Sidney Powell – who released the FBI text messages – and the various Senate committees – who released the revelations about Hunter Biden and Steele’s Russian sub-source – to get all of this damning information into the public domain without drawing fire in on their own position from the news media.

If true, we have a word for that kind of skullduggery: Chickenshit. Sorry for the semi-profanity, but that’s what such an effort by Barr/Durham would be.

If Durham really does have the goods on these people, and really does have hundreds of sealed indictments waiting to be unsealed, then election timing simply should not even factor into his and Barr’s equation. Because if Durham really has the goods, that means that there are treasonous criminals who planned and executed a literal coup d’ etat effort on U.S. soil roaming free as birds right now. It would also mean that half of American voters are about to cast votes for the next president without being in possession of real knowledge about any of this.

That would be an incredible travesty of justice, and a stain on their reputations that Barr and Durham could never wash off. If they really do have the goods, the only time to act is now.

I’m not going to hold my breath waiting for Godot to finally arrive, though.

That is all.

Wednesday News Roundup: Texans Can Take Care of Texans; The Rest of the Country Needs Help

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

In case you’re wondering why Texas Governor Greg Abbott, in a press conference yesterday with the police chiefs and mayors of Fort Worth and Dallas, said that he would not be asking for military assistance from the federal government to quell any out-of-control demonstrations in our state, all you need to see is this photo taken last night in the halls of the Texas Capitol Building by Glenn DeShields:

Image may contain: indoor

Those are Texas Department of Public Safety troopers, sleeping on the marble floors. I have walked those floors many times. They are 100% firm – they don’t give an inch, just like the officers getting a few moments of rest on them.

“So we will not be asking the United States military to come into the state of Texas because we know that Texans can take care of Texans. We have tremendous police forces in Dallas, in Fort Worth, in the surrounding suburbs across the entire state. We have an abundance of resources that are being provided by the Texas Department of Public safety,” said Abbott.

God Bless Texas.

Why doesn’t this Black life matter? – Dave Dorn, a retired captain of the St. Louis Metro Police Department, was murdered by thugs who were looting a pawn shop where he was working security on Tuesday. Mr. Dorn happened to be a Black man, as were the vicious thugs who killed him.

Because Captain Dorn was killed by black men, the national news media is essentially ignoring this story. A web search indicates that only ABC News bothered to file even an online story about this senseless killing, and it was reported in the context of several police killings and injuries that happened on Tuesday, with this headline: “Small-town police chief killed as officers in 3 cities wounded during violence at George Floyd protests.”

To make the story even more demeaning to Captain Floyd’s memory, it does not even mention the fact that he was a Black man. I kid you not. Read it for yourself.

Our news media is an existential threat to our country.

Here’s your Ironic Story of the Day. – Check out this tweet issued by the Associated Press on Tuesday:

Just a reminder that Joe Biden has already spent 16,089 days of his life in public office. In all of that time, his main contribution to addressing “institutional racism” was to co-author the 1993 crime bill that… wait for it … targeted Black men.

But he’s now the Democrat Party’s Great White Hope for solving all the problems faced by America’s Black community. If you’re Black and you fall for this, you truly do get what you deserve. Stop this madness.

Speaking of corrupt news media… – The Secret Service guard station that sits just outside the White House grounds was burned last night by the rioters in Washington DC:

A web search shows not a single story on this incident from our national news media. NOT ONE.

But hey, that’s not fake news, so… – One story that the entire national media focused on Tuesday is – predictably – completely fake. It is the story still being pushed this morning that the federal Park Police, in clearing the path for President Trump and his entourage to make the walk from the White House to St. John’s Church on Monday afternoon, used “tear gas and rubber bullets” to intimidate the violent rioters who have caused so much damage and injured at least 60 Secret Service and other law enforcement personnel.

I watched it all happen live, and it was very clear that none of that happened. The Park Police issued a statement Tuesday clarifying what actually did happen:

“At approximately 6:33 pm, violent protestors on H Street NW began throwing projectiles including bricks, frozen water bottles and caustic liquids,” the USPP said in a statement. “The protestors also climbed onto a historic building at the north end of Lafayette Park that was destroyed by arson days prior. Intelligence had revealed calls for violence against the police, and officers found caches of glass bottles, baseball bats and metal poles hidden along the street.

“As many of the protestors became more combative, continued to throw projectiles, and attempted to grab officers’ weapons, officers then employed the use of smoke canisters and pepper balls when protestors did scatter from the area.”

[End]

Reporters from NBC and the Washington Post continue to spread their fiction this morning. Because they are corrupt, fake-news-promoting enemies of the people. That’s what they are.

For those of you still holding out hope that Salt Lake City U.S. Attorney John Huber might still produce some shocking indictments of Obamagate bad actors, the President of the United States would like to disabuse you of that silly notion:

Remember, Huber was supposedly appointed by former AG Jeff Sessions to investigate the Obama FBI’s fake investigation of the Clinton email scandal way back in late 2017. He has to date produced nothing because that’s really what Sessions appointed him to do.

Now do you understand why President Trump detests Mr. Sessions, and supports his opponent in the upcoming runoff election, Tommy Tubberville? It really isn’t complicated.

Reminder: None of this rioting ever really was about George Floyd. – Rioters in Boston last night defaced a monument called “Glory.” The monument depicts heroic Union solders during the U.S. Civil War.

The solders all have one thing in common: They’re Black. They’re the members of the 54th Regiment who became the first Black soldiers to fight in the Civil War.

You could never make this stuff up.

That is all.

The WaPo Rolls Out a Narrative-Setting Story on the Huber Investigation

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

Are you possibly getting a wee little bit tired of all this WINNING yet? No? – Yeah, you know what’s coming: All major U.S. stock indexes – the NASDAQ, the S&P 500 and the Dow – closed at all-time record high levels on Thursday as the markets recognized the soundness of the Trump Administration’s strategy vis a vis Iran even as the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies raged on about it. And it’s only going to get better today, as pre-market trading futures indicate the markets will open at new record levels later this morning. Truly, it never gets old.

Is Hillary finally off the hook on her fake Foundation influence peddling? – If you believe the Washington Post, you will think she is. The corrupt news fakers at the WaPo reported yesterday that the “investigation” supposedly being conducted by Salt Lake City U.S. Attorney John Huber – a lifelong Democrat and Obama appointee – into the machinations of the Clinton Foundation has ended without result. Thus, if the report, based solely on the Post’s usual anonymous sources, is to be believed, the Huber investigation turns out to have been just another of so many false promises made by the worthless ex-Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who announced his assignment of this task to Huber in early 2018.

It has long seemed obvious to me that Huber was actually doing nothing real on this “investigation;” thus, this report comes as no real surprise. But this is the Washington Post, after all, filing yet another foundation-devoid report based on nothing but “sources” who refuse to be named. As we have seen time after time over the last four years, this sort of report has well over a 50% chance of being a completely false story, nothing more than an attempt by someone who might be a target of the “investigation” to set a favorable narrative in advance of the issuance of whatever findings Huber may decide to produce. We have seen this tactic time after time after time, as corrupt media outlets like the WaPo work hard to provide cover for their Deep State benefactors.

So, it is always wise to wait a few days to see what else might pop up.

It is interesting to note that this story is chock-full of all sorts of qualifiers and weasel words, which indicates the reporter(s) who worked on it are attempting to spin a yarn and want to be able to claim ignorance should future revelations prove it to have been inaccurate. Here are some examples:

  • The very first paragraph says the investigation “has effectively ended with no tangible results, and current and former law enforcement officials said they never expected the effort to produce much of anything.” What that sentence really says is that the investigation hasn’t ended at all and the “sources” on whom the reporter is relying aren’t really sure of what they are telling the reporter. Also, “much of anything” is not nothing, indicating the reporter and his sources believe Huber has found something, and that something has them worried.
  • This is confirmed in paragraph 3, which says, in part: “Current and former officials said that Huber has largely finished and found nothing worth pursuing — though the assignment has not formally ended and no official notice has been sent to the Justice Department or to lawmakers, these people said.” Oh. Ok.
  • Paragraph 4 reinforces that the investigation is not actually closed with this opening: “The effective conclusion of his investigation…” An “effective” conclusion is not a conclusion.

Thus, we see the early paragraphs of the story completely contradict the headline. This investigation – to the extent it is a real investigation – is not closed at all, and someone in the Deep State is worried about that fact.

The next part of any good Deep State cover story is to glorify the bad actors at the DOJ who are most likely also the people leaking this information to the WaPo’s reporter.

  • Paragraph 11 takes care of that task with this: “But from the start, senior officials inside the Justice Department viewed Huber’s task as unlikely to lead to anything of significance…” That would be “senior officials” like Peter Strzok and Andrew McCabe and James Comey and Lisa Page. You know – all those “senior officials” who no longer work at the DOJ.

There is much, much more of this kind of nonsense in this story, including three paragraphs later on that are designed to create sympathy for poor, poor Hillary Clinton, but you get the point: This is just another Deep State narrative creation story dutifully rolled out by the sympathetic corrupt reporters and editors who infest the WaPo and our national fake news media.

Again, I harbor little belief that Huber has been doing anything real in this investigation as it relates to the Clinton Foundation, and am not anticipating any real results from it in terms of doing anything to punish the Pantsuit Princess for her blatant selling of the Secretary of State’s office to the highest bidders. But this particular WaPo story, planted as it obviously has been by Deep State interests, raises the prospect that Huber might be onto something tangentially related to the Clinton Foundation, something that has some Deep State skunk or snake worried.

So, best to wait a few days and see what else develops on this front before just assuming Huber has a big bag of nothing. Because more often than not, narrative-setting stories like this one clearly is turn out to be proven false by subsequent events.

One last thought: If the Pantsuit Princess wants to make one final run at the presidency this year, she will need to be free and clear from accusations of wrongdoing related to her foundation. Just a thought…

 

That is all.

Barr Delivers Off-topic Bombshells at Budget Hearing

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

Those loud noises you hear are the sounds of American liberal heads exploding. – Despite being the target of a clownish witch hunt of his own, Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu was indirectly elected to serve a record fifth term in that job yesterday in Israel’s parliamentary elections. His conservative Likud Party in fact received its strongest percentage of the vote since the 2003 elections, winning 35 seats in the 120 seat legislature, where it will be able to form an alliance with other conservative parties who together won 30 seats.

All the “experts” had of course predicted that Netanyahu would be brought down by the media-promoted witch hunt in which politically-motivated prosecutors threaten to indict him for allegedly accepting illegal gifts from leaders of other nations and his wife for filing to be reimbursed by the government for the costs of holding state dinners at the couple’s modest home. This kind prosecuturial nonsense was rewarded by voters with a significant shift in favor of Netanyahu and other conservative parties when compared to the results of the country’s previous three elections. Just wait until you hear all the liberal heads exploding here in the U.S. when the same kind of backlash takes place in our country’s own 2020 elections. It will be glorious.

Meanwhile, here in America, the New York Times just kept on faking the news for its demented leftist reader base, declaring these very positive results to be a “setback” for Netanyahu, based not on the actual election results, but by always-inaccurate exit polls conducted by fake news media organizations.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up. Who could?

Do we finally have a real attorney general on the job? – Bob Barr certainly made all the right noises during his testimony before the House Appropriations Committee yesterday.

In what was supposed to be a hearing about his department’s budget for Fiscal Year 2021, Barr was of course repeatedly questioned by craven Democrats who have no interest in actually doing their job about the Mueller report and when he plans to release it. During the course of that off-topic questioning by rank demagogues, the Attorney General delivered a wealth of extremely interesting information:

  • On the Mueller report, he said he would likely be able to release a properly-redacted version of it within the next week, and even hilariously promised to color-code the redactions for Democrats who aren’t capable of reading or thinking above a third-grade level.
  • He spelled out four areas of information he would redact consistent with statutes that have been on the books for decades:  1) grand jury information; 2) information related to U.S. intelligence-gathering; 3) information that could compromise ongoing investigations; and 4) information that could violate the privacy of individuals who were not direct subjects of the Mueller witch hunt.
  • Regarding his four-page summary of the Mueller report that was released two weeks ago, Barr revealed that he offered Mueller the opportunity to review and comment on the summary prior to its release, an offer Mueller refused to accept.
  • Barr told the committee that he anticipates that DOJ Inspector General Micheal Horowitz will finally, at long last, be wrapping up his own investigation into the rampant abuse of the FISA process by the deep state cabal inside his department sometime in May. Yay.

All of that is fine and good, but then came the really big news:

  • The Attorney General informed the committee that he has initiated an investigation into how, why and when the FBI decided to begin a counterintelligence investigation into the Trump Campaign, which we know actually began in late 2015 despite FBI and media lies claiming it only started in July, 2016.

If true – and there is no apparent reason not to take Barr at his word at this point in time – this is a very big deal, because any honest and thorough investigation into that particular subject will inevitably reveal that all of these Obama-era DOJ and FBI officials and their media co-conspirators have been lying to congress, investigators and the public about all of this for two and a half years now.

Further, any honest and thorough investigation into this subject will inevitably ensnare James Comey, Peter Strzok, Andrew McCabe, Lisa Page, Bruce and Nellie Ohr, Sally Yates and even Obama CIA Director John Brennan in its web, in addition to many others. Such an investigation would also inevitably reveal that Attorney General Loretta Lynch was intimately aware of everything that was happening, as well as then-President Barack Hussein Obama, given that every president receives a weekly briefing on U.S. counterintelligence operations.

Sadly, here is what Barr’s revelation also most likely reveals: That Salt Lake City U.S. Attorney John Huber and his staff of hundreds of investigators have most likely not been doing a damn thing on any of this over the last 18 months. It was the fall of 2017 when ex-Attorney General Jeff Sessions used Huber as a lame excuse for his refusal to appoint a second special counsel to look into all of this, claiming then that he had authorized Huber to conduct this exact investigation. Apparently, that was just a dodge by an attorney general who was intent on doing nothing, and did nothing well.

As I said, we have no reason not to take Barr at his word at this point in time, and we can always hope he is not engaging in a Sessions-style dodge now. Hopefully, he won’t give us any reason to start doubting his word in the months to come.

Our nation needs justice here, real justice.  Demands it, in fact.

That is all.

Lindsey Graham Drops a Bomb at William Barr’s Doorstep

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

Say what you will about South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham – and lots of things are said about him for sure – but he is one powerful hombre in Washington, D.C. today. As the new Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, when Graham talks, people listen, and you can bet Attorney General William Barr was listening when the Senator held a press conference this morning in which he called for the appointment of a new special counsel.

From the Boston Globe:

Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Lindsey Graham on Monday accused the FBI of “unprofessional conduct” in its initial investigation of potential links between Russian election interference and President Trump’s campaign and called for a new probe of its origins.

Now that Robert Mueller’s investigation is over, Graham said he plans to “get answers” about how the Russia probe was started and whether it was used as an excuse to spy on Trump’s presidential campaign. He urged Attorney General William Barr to appoint a special counsel to examine the issue.

Sen. Graham also said his Committee will conduct its own investigation into the origins of the counterintelligence investigation targeting the Trump Campaign in late 2015, and into the rampant misconduct within the DOJ, FBI and various U.S. intelligence agencies.

For Attorney General Barr, Graham’s call for a special counsel investigation presents an inflection point in which he will either demonstrate he is a real AG who is truly intent on doing the job of bringing the real wrong-doers in the nations biggest political scandal to justice, or just another placeholder who, like Jeff Sessions, sees his main job as protecting the interests of the D.C. deep state establishment.

Sessions deflected calls by then-Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley for a special counsel investigation in late 2017 by implying that Utah U.S. Attorney John Huber was on the case and using his team to look into all the Obama-era deep state shenanigans. But here we sit, 15 months later, and Huber’s office has yet to produce a single perp walk or indictment.

If Huber is indeed doing anything related to any of this, now would be the time for Barr to make it public, so that Americans outraged by the anti-American actions within the DOJ/FBI that went on throughout 2016 and 2017 can see that an effort is being made to enforce real justice. If Huber is, as many suspect, just a beard Sessions used to mask his own lack of interest in holding anyone truly accountable, Graham’s call for a special counsel offers Barr the chance to differentiate himself from his do-nothing predecessor.

The ball’s in your court, General Barr.  Show us what you got.

That is all.

President Trump’s War of Attrition vs. The Deep State

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Paris Burning Update:

Things got calmer on the streets of Gay Pareee this weekend, as 8,000 heavily-armored riot police became more efficient and effective with their use of tear gas, pepper spray and water cannons to placate the masses. Officials estimated the crowds of Yellow Vest protesters mounted to “just” 66,000 or so, about half of what they had to deal with last week, and by the end of Saturday had arrested only 168 souls.

This is what boy Prime Minister Emanuel Macron and his Climate Change enforcers call “progress.” It’s a form of “progress” that will be brought to America soon thanks to your Democrat Party, which never gives up on a good scam.

Speaking of Democrats never giving up on a good scam… – I give you Joe Biden.  Joe’s old.  He’s 76 and would be 78 on Election Day 2020. That’s a year older than Ronald Reagan – our oldest in-office President ever – was when his second term ended.  That’s old, for a serving president. No offense to anyone that age or older, but it just is.

So Biden and his team have been looking around for ways to, um, deflect attention away from the boss’s advanced, ummm, seniority, as it were. And, according to the Associated Press, they’ve come up with a bright idea: Let’s recruit young Beto to be Joe’s running mate in the primaries! I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

I suppose the strategy here would be to say, hey, sure Joe’s 77 years old, but Beto’s just 46, and if you add those up and divide by 2 you get 61 and a half! That’s pretty young, right?

In all seriousness, are voters faced with a candidate who will be well into his 80s before his first term is over going to be placated by the knowledge that, if something happens to Biden, his replacement would be a fidgety skateboarding guitar player with no real qualifications for the office? I’m not sure this is going to work, guys and gals. Matter of fact, I’m pretty sure it isn’t.

It’s a war of attrition now for President Donald Trump. – This was the week when the Deep State’s strategy to force President Trump from office became crystal clear: The plan is to open up so many different investigative fronts that he ends up throwing up his hands in frustration and resigning the office.

And the investigations don’t just target Trump – they target anyone doing a good job on his behalf as well. We lost a great Interior Secretary in Ryan Zinke this week thanks to this strategy, after DOI’s IG’s office – still occupied by Deep State loyalists – had opened up half a dozen different investigations into petty administrative matters the IG studiously ignored for 8 long Obama years.’

The shameful Democrat hack just elected to become New York’s new state attorney general announced this week that she plans to investigate every facet of Trump’s personal and business life, as well as every member of his family. Hey, remember when America used to be a constitutional Republic, and law enforcement officials had a duty to investigate crimes, not individuals? Yeah, the Democrat Party is changing all of that right before your very eyes. Are you paying attention?

This week we saw ex-Trump attorney Michael Cohen sentenced to prison for a variety of crimes that had literally nothing to do with anything remotely related to “Russia Collusion”- in fact, they had nothing to do with his work for Trump at all. Cohen pleaded guilty to things like tax evasion and some nonsense having to do with New York taxi medallions, and for the process crime of lying to investigators, but not to anything related to his work for Trump. Yet, our fake news media has spent the entire week pretending Cohen’s plea is going to get Trump impeached. It won’t.

This week also saw Russian lawyer Maria Butina plead guilty to various process and failure to file charges that again had literally nothing at all to do with Trump or his campaign. Yet our fake news media and their Democrat masters spent the entire week pretending her plea is somehow “proof” of “collusion.” It isn’t.

There’s much more news fakery going on here, but the plan is for the Democrats and the media to keep pounding this drum, day after day, week after week, hounding Trump and anyone loyal to him until he has no base of support surrounding him in the White House and his job approval numbers fall so low that he starts to lose the squishy Republicans in the Senate. At that point, the belief among those in the Deep State is that Trump will pull a Nixon and resign rather than face a potential 2/3rds vote in the Senate for his removal from office.

There are a few problems with this strategy: Richard Nixon did not have the loyal base of support among voters that Donald Trump possesses. Trump’s polling numbers remain at the same level Barack Obama commanded at this point his presidency despite the 95% negative media reporting on him and the withering daily assault of leaks and fake news planted by the Mueller team and other investigators and Deep State snakes.

Nixon also did not have the personal fortune that Trump has at his command, a fortune that allows him to lawyer up and fight all the myriad investigations the Deep State wants to throw his way. Finally, Nixon was not the bull-in-a-China-ship fighter that Donald Trump undeniably is.

But that fighter had better start fighting even more aggressively, and soon. He can start by declassifying all documents related to the sham entrapment case Mueller and his evil team mounted against General Mike Flynn. Mueller refused yet again to comply with Judge Emmett Sullivan’s order to produce the original 302 document from the FBI’s entrapment interview with Flynn that took place in January 2017. Mueller and DOJ officials were also revealed to have erased thousands of text messages from the phones of disgraced ex-FBI skunk Peter Strzok and his paramour Lisa Page last summer.

The President has a duty to declassify every document related to all of that, so that the public can clearly see the Gestapo-like tactics Mueller has been deploying against American citizens in his quest to bring down this presidency.

If DOJ IG Michael Horowitz is really going to produce a report on all the rampant abuse of the FISA process and spying on the Trump Campaign and Transition Team that took place throughout 2016 and 2017, he needs to get that produced posthaste. And what about John Huber, the Salt Lake City U.S. Attorney who Jeff Sessions claimed in early 2018 was conducting his own investigation into all of this? If Huber’s really been doing anything at all, it is long past time to be showing some results.

The Trump supporter base is incredibly loyal, but one senses it is becoming weary and frustrated at the Administration’s unwillingness to defend its President. It made some sense to hold off on doing anything big during the election season, and also to hold off through the Holiday season as well.

But things had better start popping on the President’s behalf shortly after the first of the year, or those polling numbers could well begin falling. President Trump himself has the biggest weapon in his own hands – declassification. Once he does that, the pressure on Horowitz and Huber would escalate considerably to get their own jobs done, assuming they are doing anything at all.

January 2 would be a great day to begin.

That is all.

The Great Turning of the “Russia Collusion” Tide Continues

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

News you won’t see reported on CNN – Just so you know, your President of the United States of America donated his second quarter salary ($100,000) yesterday to a project that helps rebuild military cemeteries.

Hey, remember all those media-generated rumors that Chief of Staff John Kelly was fed up with the President and going to resign? – Yeah, those were fake.  The White House announced yesterday that President Trump had asked Kelly to commit to staying on through 2020, and that General Kelly has agreed to do so.

This move was intended not only to signal stability in the White House ranks, but to emphasize to the fake news media that the President has no concerns about being caught up in their “Russia Collusion” fantasy or of being impeached by a Democrat congress.  Awesome.

Today’s Required Viewing – Last night, CNN’s fake newsman Anderson Cooper had dimwitted never-Trumper Max Boot on a panel with America’s premier expert on Russia, Prof. Stephen Cohen, to discuss U.S. relations with that country.  The result is five minutes of Cooper and Boot being utterly decimated and made to look like a couple whining children by a vastly superior intellect.  Ever watched your cat toy around with a helpless grasshopper for an hour before finally killing it?  It’s like that.  Just.  Like.  That.

Watch it here.  You’ll be glad you did.

Your Fake News Media in Action! – The fake news media is really running out of scandals to dummy up.  This morning, all the talking heads and fake reporters are attempting to make a big deal out of the President’s claim at his Tampa, Florida rally last night that “you have to show an ID to buy groceries.”  Your fake news media is contending that claim is false, and “THE PRESIDENT’S A LIARRRRRR!!!!!!!!”

Funny, though, I waited for what seemed like an interminable amount of time at the local Albertson’s on Monday as the lady in front of me sllllllooooowly wrote a check for her tab, after which the checker asked her for her driver’s license, which the lady then slooooowwwwwwllllly dug out of her purse.  Which of course is exactly the process that the President was referring to.

So who’s lying?  It’s not hard to figure out.

More news you won’t see on CNN – As you no doubt know by now, since it’s pretty much the only story the fake news media really focused on the last couple of days, the trial of Paul Manafort in Virginia has gotten underway.  While everyone at CNN and the rest of the fake news media continues to claim this is all about their Russia Collusion fantasy play, it is in fact not about Russia or Manafort’s role in the Trump campaign at all.  In fact, is so NOT related to either of those subjects that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s crack team of Clinton/Obama hacks has actually instructed their witnesses to avoid mentioning the T-word.

Yes, that’s right:  the hacks running the “investigation” that’s supposedly designed to prove the Trump Campaign “colluded” with Russian agents to influence the 2016 election are actively instructing their witnesses to avoid that particular subject entirely.  Which is not really surprising given that the charges of tax evasion and bank fraud in the case are over Manafort’s dealings from a decade ago.  You couldn’t make this stuff up if you tried.

Oh, hey, that’s not supposed to be happening, because Blue Wave or something. – A new pair of senate race polls show that the media’s effort to revive its whole “Blue Wave” narrative is a bit premature.  In Nevada, where Democrats are just absolutely certain they’ll knock off unpopular GOP incumbent Dean Heller, a new Suffolk poll has Heller leading his challenger by 1 point.  In Florida, where Democrats are just sure their slimy incumbent Bill Nelson will easily retain a seat that was not supposed to be up for grabs, a new Mason-Dixon poll has GOP candidate Rick Scott leading by 3 points.

There is no “Blue Wave” building, folks.  It just isn’t there.

The great turning of the “Russia Collusion” tide continues. – Eight days ago, the Campaign Update detailed the belief that the July 21 release of the FISA warrant filings by Tom Fitton at Judicial Watch would come to be remembered as the event that heralded the great turning of the tide in the whole Trump/Russia collusion fantasy the Democrats and their media guardians have been using to divide the nation for two years now.

Since that piece was written, we’ve seen ex-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper tossed his former boss Barack Obama under the bus and we’ve seen Rudy Giuliani casually toss out the fact that prosecutors and the White House are in possession of dozens of recordings of 2016/17 phone calls between ex-Trump lawyer Michael Cohen and reporters/media executives.

Hey, remember Tony Podesta?  You know, the brother of John Podesta, the spirit cooking chairman of the Hillary Clinton campaign?  The high-powered DC lobbyist who mysteriously shut down his practice, fired all his employees and disappeared from public view last November when his former business dealings with Paul Manafort started making the news?

Yeah, that Tony Podesta.  Now comes this little bit of news, quietly rolled out by the hacks at NBC on their low-traffic website:  It turns out that Mr. Podesta, along with former lobbying partners Vin Weber and former Obama White House Counsel Greg Craig have for months now been under investigation by U.S. attorneys working out of the Southern District of New York.

Oh.

The rumor that this investigation had been initiated was first reported way back in November, but then quickly quashed by a fake news media desperate to focus solely on reports negative to President Trump.  But now that the tide is clearly turning in the whole “Russia Collusion” fantasy play, NBC suddenly felt the urge to “update” its previous reporting on this little matter.

The real fun is going to come after DOJ IG Michael Horowitz issues his upcoming FISA abuse report, and all the fake news hacks at NBC and the rest of the #fakenews universe start figuring out what U.S. Attorney John Huber and his 400+ staff of attorneys and investigators have been up to out in Salt Lake City since last summer.  That’ll all start taking place in late August/early September, just when the mid-term election campaigns all get started in earnest.

The only “wave” building in this country is the turning tide in the Russia Collusion fantasy play.

Just another day in the bad guys are losing America.

That is all.

The FBI’s Deep State Cabal Continues to Unravel, One Slimey Thread at a Time

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Yeah, that?  That’s a terrible idea.  But let’s go ahead and do it anyway. – Not one, but two of the dumbest decisions in American history were announced yesterday by completely unrelated businesses, and amazingly, neither of those businesses was named Starbucks.

First, the dimwits who run the Miss America Pageant, which literally began in the 1920s as nothing but a swimsuit competition designed to keep tourists in Atlantic City for a week past Labor Day, announced they would be cancelling the pageant’s… wait for it…swimsuit competition!

Thus ensuring that, in about 5 years, we won’t have the Miss America Pageant to kick around anymore.  Adios!

Second, the people at IHOP – aka, the International House of Pancakes – one of the most iconic breakfast houses in American history, have come up with the genius idea of changing the acronym to “IHOB.”  The catch is that they aren’t telling anybody what the “B” stands for until next Monday, but hey, just guessing here, it might just stand for “Breakfast” since that’s what the chain specializes in.

Thus ensuring that we won’t have IHOP to kick around anymore after Monday, and probably won’t have IHOB to kick around anymore in about 5 years from now.

Who makes decisions like this?  Seriously.

Ok, Bill, tell us something we don’t already know. – The FBI’s Chief of Counterintelligence, Bill Priestap, spent 8 hours testifying behind closed doors to a joint meeting of the House Judiciary and House Oversight Committees about his role and the role of others in the FBI’s sham investigation of the Pantsuit Princess’s email scandal.

While others involved the fake investigation have either lost their jobs (James Comey, Andrew McCabe, James Baker, Lisa Page) or been demoted and reassigned since last November (Peter Strzok, Bruce Ohr), Priestap has conspicuously remained in his job, where he served as Super Duper Agent Peter Strzok’s direct boss.  This has lead to much speculation that he has long been a cooperating witness for ongoing DOJ investigations being conducted by Inspector General Michael Horowitz and U.S. Attorney John Huber.

The most interesting part about Priestap’s 8 hours on the stand, as far as the public knows, is that none of his testimony has yet been leaked to the New York Times or the Washington Post.  We can be absolutely certain sure that if anything Priestap said was positive for the Democrats or the Fainting Felon it would have already appeared in stories by both of those newspapers.

The only leak as of this writing comes from Catherine Herridge at Fox News, who reported late yesterday that a “source” said Priestap testified that Strzok’s role in the FBI’s shenanigans was even more extensive than we already know, which, given that we already know that he was involved in literally every.  damn.  thing. hardly seems possible.  But there you are.

Priestap’s long-awaited testimony appears to be one step in setting the stage for the release of Horowitz’s also long-awaited report on the fake email investigation and other Coughing Crook-related matters that the FBI chose to cover up during the Obama years.  Interestingly, a second such step took place yesterday afternoon…

Life sure does come at you fast, huh Andy? – Hey, remember when ex-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe assured everyone that he hadn’t ever done anything wrong late last year?  And remember when he threatened to sue President Trump for slander?  And remember when he threatened to take everybody down with him if he was fired before his pension was fully vested?  And remember when he got fired and wrote that scathing op/ed for the Washington Post claiming he had done nothing wrong and it was all such a huge injustice?  And remember how he did that Gofundme campaign and got a bunch of idiotic suckers to give him half a million dollars for his legal defense fund?  And remember how several Democrat members of congress offered to give him jobs so he could be employed long enough to fully earn his pension?

Yeah…good times…good times.

Late yesterday, this very same Andrew McCabe had his high-paid lawyer send a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley begging for immunity from criminal prosecution in exchange for testimony before the Committee.  Funny how all that bravado and unbridled hubris starts to disappear as the wheels of justice roll inexorably in these folks’ direction.

Just a note about that IG report… – If you’re feeling frustrated at the constant delays in getting this report released, trust me, you have plenty of company.  Including me.

But here’s the way to look at this:  The people who are the subjects of the IG investigation and still working within the FBI and DOJ have now had this report in-hand for almost three weeks.  Sean Hannity was reporting that yesterday as if it is something unusual, but it is in fact standard operating procedure:  Any current employee accused of wrongdoing by the IG is given an opportunity to respond and offer exculpatory evidence before these reports are made public.

But in those three weeks, not a word of this report has been leaked to the fake news media.  Given the number of bad actors within the DOJ and FBI who are subjects of this investigation, you can be sure that if anything in this report was positive for their case, it would have already appeared in the aforementioned house organs for the Deep State.

This report is not going to be everything you want it to be – reports of investigations like this never are.  But it’s obviously not everything the Deep State wants it to be either, because if it was we’d already know about it.

Remember the old proverb:  “The wheels of justice turn slowly, but they grind exceedingly fine.”

Just another day in the unraveling deep state America.

That is all.
