Friday News Roundup: Durham Targets Brennan, Portland Rioters Expand Their Operations

This happened on Thursday:

Now, ok, I get it: Many of you are going to respond with “well, it’s about time! What in the hell has Durham been doing????” Yeah, ok, get it out of your system. Go ahead, I’ll wait.

There, you done? Feel better now?

Ok. Look, in this kind of case, which involves literally dozens of potential targets for prosecution and dozens more potential witnesses who must be vetted, federal prosecutors like Mr. Durham will always – ALWAYS – wait to interview the big fish last.

The reason why is simple: They want to give the smaller fish – like, say, Peter Strzok or Bruce Ohr or Kevin Clinesmith – every opportunity to make a deal and turn state’s witness before they talk to the really big targets like Durham and Comey. This is the natural progression of any such investigation.

So, for better or worse, this is actually great news, a sign that Durham is finally getting to the end of his investigation. Attorney General William Barr has twice promised a “report” from Durham by the “end of summer,” which is September 22. Barr has also indicated that Durham has had at least one grand jury convened, and it is the job of a grand jury to true bill indictments.

Hopefully it isn’t all a Jeff Sessions-like smoke screen, but we will find out either way soon enough.

Stay tuned.

Hey, look: A random act of actual journalism at NPR. – Watch despicable Nancy Pelosi’s reaction as her trusted toady Judy Woodruff goes off-script and actually asks her a semi-tough question:

For a moment there, Woodruff must have remembered that she used to be a journalist. You can be sure she will not make that mistake again when talking to Pelosi.

And now a word from the mindless blithering hacks at Morning Joe. – Watch this clip and marvel as the liberals at Morning Joe twist themselves into racist pretzels in their efforts to serve as apologist for the Democrat Party’s addled nominee, Joe Biden:

You just could never make this stuff up, folks. What you are watching here in real time is the Democrat Party removing its own mask and returning to its Jim Crow past. All for the sake of getting the Bad Orange Man out of the White House. Amazing.

Gosh, Ted, who tipped you off? – Portland’s communist Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler suddenly woke up on Thursday and realized that the Democrat-funded and sponsored rioters who he has been allowing to run wild in his city are creating b-roll for President Donald Trump to use in his re-election campaign ads. Hey, I wonder what tipped him off?

From a piece at KGW8 TV in Portland:

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler and Portland Police Chief Chuck Lovell spoke about the ongoing violence in Portland during a news conference Thursday.

On Wednesday night, Portland police declared a riot, arrested 8 people and used tear gas after a crowd of a couple hundred people gathered outside the East Precinct. Some people in the crowd tried to set the building on fire while officers and others were inside, the mayor said. Others tried to smash the glass doors of the precinct building and threw large, heavy rocks and other items at officers.

Wheeler said what happened Wednesday night “was intended to cause serious injury or death, and it very well could have.”

“When you commit arson with an accelerant in an attempt to burn down a building that is occupied by people that you have intentionally trapped inside, you are not demonstrating. You are attempting to commit murder,” Wheeler said.

[End]

Oh, you don’t saaaaayyyyy. But it gets better.

From a piece at Willamette Week:

“Don’t think for a moment that, if you are participating in this activity, you are not being a prop for the reelection campaign of Donald Trump,” Wheeler said. “Because you absolutely are. You are creating the B-roll film that will be used in ads nationally to help Donald Trump during his campaign. If you don’t want to be part of that, then don’t show up.”

[End]

Ok, so, what did the Democrat-funded and sponsored rioters do in response to their partner’s admonitions? Why, they expanded their operations into a residential district, naturally.

For coverage of that, we must turn to real, actual journalist Andy Ngo, since the hacks in the corrupt corporate news media refuse to do their jobs:

But never fear: The Democrat Antifa/BLM rioters did not abandon their downtown mission:

So, the situation in Portland – which your corrupt news media continues to describe as “mostly peaceful” – is now about to spiral out of control unless the rioters’ Democrat sponsors pull their funding. Maybe this was why President Trump was once again speculating about ramping up federal involvement in that city again yesterday.

That is all.

Sunday Scattershooting While Wondering Whatever Happened to That Delightful Frederica Wilson?

Today’s Campaign Update

  • Sunday’s Required Reading – The Daily Caller has a great piece this morning by Michael Bastach, chronicling many of the innumerable “the end is near” predictions made over the last 30 years by the frauds in the Global Warming alarmist community.  It’s a great read, and a good reminder of just how wrong all these projections have been.  Of course, the point of the Global Warming scam is not to be right, it is to frighten the public into accepting collectivist political policies as the only “solution” to a problem that most likely doesn’t exist.  Take the 10 minutes necessary to read this piece – you’ll be glad you did, and smarter, too.
  • Speaking of collectivists running scams on the public, the globalists who still infest the U.S. State Department like the cockroaches in a 30 year-old single-wide have been caught attempting to influence Hungary’s elections.  The U.S. will pour $700,000 into that country’s media in an effort to defeat Hungarian PM Victor Orban, who is opposed to the open borders policies that are in the process of destroying the native cultures in Germany, France and other European Union countries.  So, to be clear, the same globalists who have been screaming for a year about Russia’s alleged efforts to influence the 2016 U.S. elections have no problem at all doing it to other countries.  But then, we already knew that, didn’t we?
  • Hey, let’s tie the Global Warming scam to the sexual harassment frenzy while we’re at it – John Phillips, writing in the Orange County Register, wonders aloud how it is that Al Gore, the Capo di tutti capi of all Global Warming scammers, has managed to escape scrutiny in the ongoing sexual assault feeding frenzy?  It’s a great question, given that Mr. Gore has been publicly accused several times of improper sexual behavior with women.  That’s a real ‘inconvenient truth’ if there ever was one, huh?
  • Perhaps, as Professor of Sexual Violence Wendy Murphy detailed back in 2010, Honest Al gets a pass because he’s just sooooo darn green, an affliction that also infests about 99% of the national news media at this point.  But it does seem odd that, even as so many Bill Clinton media shills are finding it convenient to finally condemn him after all these years, Mr. Gore continues to just skate by, flying under the radar, as it were.  It hardly seems fair.
  • Getting tired of all this winning yet? – Don Surber celebrates the possibility that President Donald Trump (I never get tired of typing those words) may be able to appoint twice as many judges to the federal bench by the end of 2018 than Barack Obama did during his entire eight years in office.  We can thank the thankfully gone Harry Reid and his idiotic decision to kill the use of the filibuster in the judicial confirmation process, along with a long-awaited plan to expand the federal judiciary for this happy potential reality.
  • Or maybe it’s because of the simple fact that sexual harassment and abuse has been running rampant in Hollywood and the liberal national culture at large for far too long, and people got fed up with it. – Columnist David Brooks, who pretends to be a ‘conservative’ for the NYTimes and PBS, told his PBS co-host Judy Woodruff on Friday that he believes the wave of sexual abuse allegations is because of a public reaction to…wait for it…DONALD TRUMP.  Holy cow.
  • Here’s a direct quote:   “I think the reaction to Trump is part of the deal here. And we’ve talked about Trump maybe polluting our national culture, but it could be the reaction to Trump is also making us hypersensitive and making us want to correct the national culture. And so, you could be a — see a reaction to — the Trump wave, I think, has lowered norms and standards, but a lot of people would say, ‘No, we’re not happy with this, we’re going to raise norms and standards.’ ”  Only a liberal pretending to be a conservative could engage in such twisted leaps of logic.
  • Finally, Former FBI Director James Comey, who has recently begun using his Twitter account all too frequently, issued the following Tweet on Saturday:  “‘Our Liberty depends on freedom of the press, and that cannot be limited without being lost.’ – Thomas Jefferson, Jan. 28, 1786.”  For the record, James Comey was FBI Director when Fox News reporter James Rosen was wire-tapped by that corrupt agency.  Just sayin’.

Just another day in frauds, frauds, everywhere America.

That is all.
