Saturday News Roundup: Gina Carano Rebounds as Lincoln Project Rats Flee the Sinking Ship

Today’s Short-Term Memory Update. – Just a reminder that the real violent riots that have plagued our society over the last four years have come from the BLM/Antifa left, two groups created and sponsored by the Democrat Party:

Today’s Global Climate Scam Update. – Just in case you are buying the bullsh*t coming from the government that this terrible arctic cold weather is due to “missing Arctic sea ice,” I just thought you ought to know that there is no missing Arctic sea ice. The extent of Arctic sea ice right now, today, is essentially unchanged from where it has averaged for the last 40 years.

The more you know…

Today’s Be Thankful For Big Oil Update. – Watch this video. Play close attention to it, because it’s the absolute truth.
That truth is that our modern lives are not possible without oil, natural gas and other petroleum products, and there is no affordable, scalable alternative to them in existence today.

As you sit safely warm in your homes as everything is freezing outside for the next week, be thankful for “Big Oil,” because without Big Oil, you’d be freezing, too.

P.S.: The guy’s underwear is also made with petroleum products, but they’d have to rate the ad XXX if they made that disappear, too.

Fleeing like rats from a sinking ship. – The scandal-plagued DC Swamp grift called the Lincoln Project bled more members on Friday, as one of its founders, the piggish George Conway, accused the group of engaging in criminal activity by illegally accessing and publishing the Twitter private massages of Jennifer Horn, another ex-member who left the group earlier this week.

One of the group’s other co-founders, Steve Schmidt, announced he was quitting the scam after it was revealed on Thursday that he and everyone else involved had known about fellow founder and former McCain campaign manager John Weaver’s proclivity for sexually preying on young boys since at least last June and said nothing about it. In a transparent effort to garner sympathy and set up a narrative explaining why he didn’t blow the whistle on Weaver, Schmidt included, without providing evidence, a claim that he was molested when he was 13 years old by a Boy Scout leader. Because of course he did.

From a story at DailyWire:

 

Steve Schmidt, a GOP political operative and co-founder of The Lincoln Project, released a statement Friday claiming he was molested as a teenage Boy Scout. This came after news broke about his resignation from the anti-Trump organization.

Schmidt’s resignation is the latest consequence of the numerous allegations against Schmidt’s fellow co-founder John Weaver, who allegedly exhibited sexually predatory behavior toward young men in exchange for career advancement, according to Axios.

One of the boys to whom Weaver reportedly spoke was only 14 years old at the time, according to one of the 21 alleged victims interviewed by The New York Times.

The super PAC, which the Associated Press reported paid most of the $90 million it raised to consulting firms with ties to the group’s founders and senior staff, has been hemorrhaging employees since the accusations against Weaver went public.

The Lincoln Project spokesperson Kurt Bardella, video series host Nayyera Haq, and columnist Tom Nichols also resigned Friday.

Maybe Schmidt was molested, maybe he wasn’t, but it would be taking a page right out of the playbook of Alexandria Ocasio Cortez to just invent such a story as a means of garnering public sympathy and shifting blame for one’s own despicable actions – or in Schmidt’s case, his inaction. Molested or not, nothing absolves Schmidt and the rest of the Lincoln Project creep grifters from failing to do something about the inappropriate behavior of their partner and de facto leader.

With Friday’s defections, the only high-profile grifter remaining among the original founders is Rick Wilson, a lifelong circus clown who always has been slow on the uptake, which helps explain why he has managed so many losing campaigns. Wilson is perhaps the most repugnant of the entire bunch, though, so it’s no surprise he’s the last hanger-on in this massive scam.

I write much more about this pack of professional sleazeballs elsewhere this morning in Today’s Required Reading. Go read it.

Gina Carano Refuses to be cancelled by the Perpetual Outrage Mob. – Fresh from being fired by the Nazi goons at Disney for tweeting the truth about the current state of American culture, actress Gina Carano announced on Friday that she has agreed to a new production/acting gig with DailyWire.

From the story at DailyWire:

Two days after Gina Carano was reportedly axed by Disney “in what critics alleged was a politically-motivated hit,” The Daily Wire announced that they will be partnering with the former Mandalorian actress, who will “produce and star in an upcoming film exclusively for Daily Wire members.”

On Friday, The Daily Wire announced that it would be partnering with Carano to produce an upcoming film exclusively for Daily Wire members. “The Daily Wire is helping make one of my dreams — to develop and produce my own film — come true. I cried out and my prayer was answered,” Carano said in a statement. (The Daily Wire is offering a 25% discount for new members with the Carano-themed promo code “GINA.”)

“I am sending out a direct message of hope to everyone living in fear of cancellation by the totalitarian mob,” Carano said. “I have only just begun using my voice which is now freer than ever before, and I hope it inspires others to do the same. They can’t cancel us if we don’t let them.”

After the exclusive Deadline report broke, news of Carano’s partnership with The Daily Wire immediately went viral, with massive media coverage of what can only be described as a complete rejection of cancel culture.

Cool.

 

Today’s Impeachment Scam Update. – Just a reminder that the Democrats in congress are attempting to impeach Donald Trump for trying to overturn the results of the 2020 election. Which is exactly what they did following the 2016 election:

Projection. That’s what the Democrats do. In fact, it’s pretty much all they do.

That is all.
