Corrupt News Media Floats Yet Another Hoax as Cover for Fading Joe Biden

*sigh* Here we go again. – Some New York Times hack reporter named Michael Schmidt has a new book out, and it is going to serve as the germination for the latest Democrat/media hoax. This one will be called the “Did Trump Have a Stroke?” hoax.

In his book, Schmidt writes about the President’s “abrupt” trip to Walter Reed Hospital for what the White House described as a physical exam one Saturday last November. Relying on only unidentified sources, Schmidt claims that Vice President Mike Pence was notified to be ready to take over the responsibilities of the presidency by the Secret Service and goes on to allege the President had suffered a stroke.

From a piece at the utterly corrupt The Hill:

Vice President Mike Pence was told to be on standby to assume presidential powers during President Trump’s abrupt visit to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center last year, according to New York Times reporter Michael Schmidt’s upcoming book obtained by CNN.

Schmidt wrote that he learned “in the hours leading up to Trump’s trip to the hospital, word went out in the West Wing for the vice president to be on standby to take over the powers of the presidency temporarily if Trump had to undergo a procedure that would have required him to be anesthetized.”

He did not specify his sourcing for the information about the November 2019 hospital visit.

At the time, the White House said the president underwent a “quick exam and labs” as part of his annual physical exam preparing for “a very busy 2020.”

The president tweeted after his visit that his health was “very good (great!)” and that he would finish the exam in 2020.

While Pence did not take over presidential powers, Schmidt’s book raises questions about the unscheduled hospital visit, which drew speculation at the time about the president’s health.

[End]

Scumbag media figures like former Clinton spokesman Joe Lockhart immediately started up the “Trump had a stroke” drumbeat on Twitter after CNN had aired a segment on the book:

Here’s the problem with this particular scam: If the President had a stroke, he had an amazingly rapid recovery from it, given that he actually took questions from reporters the very next day and showed no signs of any ill-effects. How many of you could suffer a stroke and then face the pack of braying hyenas in the White House press corps?

The whole point of this particular exercise is an effort by the Democrats and their media toadies to attempt to offset the growing public alarm about the frailty of Joe Biden by raising health concerns about the President. A clear majority of Americans now believe that Biden is suffering the effects of advancing dementia – which he obviously is – including over 30% of Democrats, so this is the corrupt news media doing anything it can to try to provide cover for that reality.

Yesterday’s little venture out of the basement by Creepy Uncle Quid Pro Dementia China Joe did not help matters in this regard, as I talked about yesterday evening. Biden looked halting and frail just walking a few steps from his limousine to his private jet (whose private jet is that, by the way?); he stammered his way through trying to read a prepared speech from a TelePrompter, and he yet again refused to take a single question from the fawning fake reporters who follow him around like a pack of newborn ducklings.

To make the media’s mendacity even more disgusting, here is how every major media outlet in America portrayed Biden’s speech photographically at the behest of his elder-abusing campaign handlers:

Biden paints Trump as someone who 'sows chaos rather than providing order'  - ABC News

Nothing but close-up shots, flags waving in the background, formal campaign podium in the foreground, portraying the illusion that he was speaking to a large crowd.

Now, here is the reality of the setting:

Image

There’s the fading, elderly guy, almost alone in a cavernous facility of some sort, speaking only to a handful of fake reporters who wouldn’t dream of asking him a difficult question even if he agreed to take them. Not a single major media outlet showed this image or any like it to their reader or viewers. Not one.

Do you think the Trump Campaign would have received a similar courtesy from the media?

This is just one more of a million ways that our corrupt news media serves as nothing more than a support operation for the Democrats. The FEC should require the Biden campaign to report coverage like this as a campaign contribution in-kind.

That is all.

The COVID-19 Data the Corrupt News Media Won’t Report

On Sunday, the U.S suffered its fewest Wuhan Virus-related deaths since March 23. If you get your news from CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times or any of the other corrupt major U.S. media outlets, you did not know that.

But it’s true: Across the entire United States, just 267 people had their deaths listed as being “COVID-19 Related”, a categorization that everyone know is grossly inflated. Take a look at this chart compiled from CDC data if you don’t believe me:

US Deaths Coronavirus

The country has been on the downside of that curve since April 18, more than two months ago, during which time the number of daily deaths has consistently and dramatically fallen. That has happened despite the fact that most states began re-opening their economies around that exact same time, despite the dire predictions from the professional purveyors of panic porn that we would see a dramatic spike in hospitalizations and deaths as the economy began to come back.

None of that happened. And because none of it happened, the media and their Democrat masters shifted focus to wailing about the rising number of “cases” as testing for the viral gift from China ramped up and hospitals and doctor’s offices began once again treating patients for non-emergency problems. These days, even Fox news focuses almost solely on the number of “cases,” for the simple reason that that is the only COVID-19 related number that is still rising.

[By the way, that word, “cases,” was intentionally and carefully chosen by the corrupt news media over what it had previously referred to as “positive tests.” Do you understand why? It’s because the term “cases” implies that a person who tests positive has had to be hospitalized, which is the disinformation they want you to believe, even though the vast majority of those testing positive never have to set foot in a hospital. Joseph Goebbels would be beaming with pride over this little trick.]

BUT WHAT ABOUT FLORIDA!!!!! you scream, since the corrupt reporters you watch and read have been screaming that at you for the past two weeks.

Well, there is this from Alex Berenson this morning:

See? The only thing that has spiked in Florida is positive tests, i.e., “cases.” Because the number of people being tested every day in Florida has risen dramatically in recent weeks, just like it has everywhere else.

BUT WHAT ABOUT THE SHORTAGES OF HOSPITAL ROOMS AND ICU BEDS!!!! you scream for the same reasons. Again, that’s not happening, not even remotely:

BUT…BUT…BUT WHAT ABOUT TEXAS!!!!! you scream because one of your panicked friends misunderstood what Gov. Abbott said last week and sent you a panicked text

Well, there’s this:

Image

Oh.

BUT HOW CAN THAT BE WHEN CASES ARE GOING UP!!!!! you scream because Jake Tapper told you to.

The answer to that is simple: The vast majority of people who contract this virus either never display symptoms or the symptoms they do display are so mild they do not require a visit to the hospital.

Since Day 1 that this pandemic became widely known in the United States, millions of Americans have been walking around with it in their systems but not displaying symptoms. But we did not have the ability to perform widespread testing for it until mid-April, so no one had any real idea of just how widespread that phenomenon is. As testing has risen and the massive number of new “cases” has risen along with it, we are getting some idea.

The main idea we are getting that really matters is that this flu virus has a death rate that is going to end up being lower than that of the common flu once all the testing has been done and the true extent of the infected population becomes firmly known.

Here are other things we now know that we did not know just two months ago:

  • There are multiple treatment regimes that are highly effective in attacking this virus, and more are being developed every day;
  • We know who the truly vulnerable segments of our population are to this virus, and know far more about how to protect them;
  • We know that anyone under the age of 45 or so who is not grossly overweight and does not have pre-existing lung or heart conditions is virtually impregnable to this virus;
  • We know that the way in which we attacked this pandemic, by issuing blanket stay-at-home orders and shutting down the vast majority of the economy, was tragically and disastrously wrong; and finally
  • We know that literally nothing Drs. Fauci and Birx told us about this virus back in March was correct. Not one word.

So, there you go – a collection of the news about the Wuhan Virus that you will not see reported today in the mainstream, corrupt news media.

That is all.

Biden Bumbles, Stumbles and Mumbles as Trump’s Approval Ratings Soar

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

Trump’s numbers are booming. – Two new polls released on Tuesday show President Donald Trump gaining popularity thanks to his handling of this China Virus crisis. His overall approval ratings reached new highs in both the Gallup Poll (49%) and the latest HarrisX Survey (54%). The Gallup poll now pegs his approval for his handling of the China Virus at a whopping 60%, with just 38% disapproval.

This is very troubling news for the elder abusers attempting to pass Quid Pro Joe Biden off as someone who can handle the job. Very troubling news indeed.

They never should’ve given up on Operation Hide The Geezer. – For a week there, the world was Quid Pro Joe’s oyster. His recent sweeps of state after state after state in his nomination contest with The Commie, combined with government advisories to stay at home and avoid contact with others had provided the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator and his evil staff the perfect excuse to keep their obviously declining candidate under wraps.

The inability to hold more campaign “rallies” is a blessing to Creepy Uncle Joe.  Think of it: No more need to partition off small high school gymnasiums with temporary walls at mid-court because he couldn’t fill them up. No more ability for the handsy candidate to incur embarrassing videos of him inappropriately fondling young girls and other people’s wives.  No more uncontrollable live events where his handlers risk the clearly impaired candidate going off-script and referring to God as “you know, the thing.” No more opportunities for the “tough guy” Biden to curse, insult and challenge auto workers to a fight when they ask him semi-tough questions.

It was without doubt an elder abuser’s dream world. They could have let the Geezer sit in his study for weeks, maybe months, doing nothing but pretending to sign off on press releases and tweets written for him by others and no one in the corrupt news media would have said boo about it. Hell, most of them would have gone on and on about what a statesman he was being, setting such a great example for the rest of the population.

Why, nobody shelters in place like that great American, Joe Biden, by golly!

But it is always the natural tendency of campaign professionals to “do something,” and when they began to see President Donald Trump’s public approval ratings shooting up as the people started taking his daily public briefings seriously, the alarm bells sounded in Bidenland. Even more threatening in the nearer term, they saw New York Governor Andrew Cuomo doing his own daily briefings and receiving increasing praise from the same corrupt media toadies that have been in the tank for Quid Pro Joe. With every passing day, it seemed to them that Cuomo was becoming more and more of a threat to sweep into the July convention in Milwaukee in the role of the “white night” to save the party from nominating an increasingly incapacitated candidate.

Thus it was that after just one week of successfully hiding the Geezer, Biden’s abusive handlers decided they had to roll him out in front of the cameras again. They touted their latest scam as an effort by Quid Pro Joe to hold regular counter-briefings so he can “correct the record” because of all of the evil Trump’s “lies” to the American public. They set up a handy teleprompter and video feed in the study of Biden’s palatial home and handed him an 8-minute script in a gigantic font for the Geezer to hopefully read verbatim.

That approach almost worked semi-well during Biden’s first “counter-briefing,” until the teleprompter malfunctioned, causing Biden to start stammering and gesturing to his staff to get the damn thing scrolling again:

That was Monday’s fiasco. Things only got worse on Tuesday, as the Biden handlers decided to throw all caution to the wind and roll him out there for a series of softball interviews on CNN, ABC and MSNBC.

Appearing with the execrable hack Jake Tapper on CNN, Quid Pro Joe repeatedly coughed into his fist, so many times that Tapper felt the need to give the former Vice President of the United States instructions on the proper way to cough into his elbow, a decades-old technique of which the Geezer was apparently blissfully unaware:

In an interview on MSNBC with despicable Nicolle Wallace, Quid Pro Joe repeatedly got confused and stopped in mid-sentence:

In that same interview, the pathetic fan girl was so anxious to get rid of him that she felt the need to say thank you no fewer than seven times:

The coup de gras came in an appearance on ABC News. There he was asked by Sara Haynes if President Trump is right when he says “we can’t let the cure be worse than the virus itself.”

Biden’s answer: “We have to take care of the cure. That will make the problem worse no matter what.”

I swear I don’t make this stuff up:

Naturally, the liberal activist Haynes had no follow-up question to that gibberish answer.

But the reality for the Biden camp is that they cannot expect to survive the grueling campaign to come via corrupt media bias alone. As this post demonstrates, these clips are viewed by millions of people every day on social media. Try as they might, the evil minions who spend their days censoring conservative thought and speech on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and all the other platforms are simply not capable of hiding them from a curious public.

Don’t get me wrong: They can almost certainly make it to the July convention through media bias and censorship, because the Democrat voter base is really good at refusing to deal with reality. But the general election campaign is an entirely different animal, one that cannot be rigged by the DNC. And the reality of the Unfrozen Caveman Senator is that he is clearly and unambiguously not competent to hold the office of the presidency.

Biden’s abusive handlers and family would do well to reconsider this latest failing strategy, and re-implement Operation Hide the Geezer. Hide him all the way to July if you can, and then hope for a miracle in the fall.

That’s not an especially good strategy, but when you’re actively trying to force an impaired candidate into the White House, it’s the best one available.

That is all.

Friends Don’t Let Friends Be Sheep

Guest piece from Red Chair Reflections

[Note: I have known the author at Red Chair Reflections for many years, and she is one of the best writers I have come across. Most of her pieces are not politically-oriented, but her voice is one that deserves to be heard. I thought readers here would especially enjoy this piece.]

It’s an election year in the US. I’ve started thinking more about how much effort is put into influencing our opinions – not just by the political parties and individual campaigns but by all of the intertwined sources of information we consume. It seems like immediately after every debate or televised speech, some variation of the following comes out of my television:

“We’ll break it all down for you.”

“We’ll tell you how the candidates fared tonight.”

“Let’s dive into what this all means to you at home.”

“If you are just tuning in, here’s what you missed.”

Think about these statements objectively, outside of the news cycle.

Next time you hear similar phrases from your television, think how condescending and offensive they are. Yet, they’ve become part of the media lexicon. We’ve been completely dumbed down and collectively convinced somehow that political discourse is as complex as brain surgery, and we shouldn’t form our own opinions without “expert” guidance.

Imagine being in a doctor’s office, for example. If you are reading a copy of your child’s latest bloodwork report or looking at an MRI image or an x-ray, these would seem like perfectly benign and soothing things to say to you. The doctor or assistant is the trained expert, and they understand what they are looking at, and you are depending on their training and expertise to explain something that you are not trained to understand. “Annie’s bilirubin reading is slightly elevated. Let me explain what that means. ” That is a perfectly respectful and reasonable statement.

On the other hand, imagine that you and your spouse are in a parent-teacher meeting, and have just listened to the teacher’s account of your tweenager’s behavior and performance problems in school. At the end of her presentation, a guidance counselor you’ve never met says, “Let’s dive in to what this means to you at home.” I don’t know about you, but my immediate reaction would be something along the lines of, “Oh, we know what this means to us at home, thank you very much. We’re not idiots.”

Another CNN Narrative Engineer Gets Destroyed on National Television

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

Fox News is reporting that Iran’s government has designated the U.S. Army as a “terrorist organization.” – That’s like having the Veggie Whopper designate you as a bad hamburger. Silliness.

Yeah, that narrative isn’t going to work, either, CNN. – We talk a lot about how the Democrats and their toadies in the corrupt news media coordinate daily on the narratives they plan to push. This is because that’s exactly what they do on a daily basis in their tireless efforts to destroy the foundations of the American Republic and hamper the Trump Administration’s policy efforts.

In Sunday morning’s Update, we laid out the Democrat/Media’s overarching narrative in response to the glorious killing of Iranian terrorist leader Qassem Soleimani, and why it will fail with the American public. 24 hours later, the despicable toadies at CNN tried to run with another element of their narrative, as they and their Democrat benefactors go through basically the same playbook they deploy in response to any military strike or campaign ordered by any Republican president.

This element is called the “nobody else agrees with the U.S. position on this” canard. Its premise is that the action taken or planned for the future by the U.S. president is inherently invalid because no other country – especially the nations of Europe – are on board with it. We have seen this posture assumed by the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies in response to every military venture authorized by a Republican president since Grenada.

On Monday evening, CNN International’s Becky Anderson, who is a British reporter based in Dubai, attempted to roll this narrative element out to her channel’s paltry audience during an interview with stellar State Department Spokesman Morgan Ortagus. The results were spectacular.

Here is a clip of the interview followed by a transcript:

Here’s the Transcript for those of you who still like to read stuff:

Anderson: The United States does, ummm, seem to be almost completely isolated when it comes to its position on Iran at present. U.S. allies in Europe, in the Middle East where I am, and in Asia are either calling for de-escalation or are virtually silent. There is almost no support for U.S. actions. Morgan, where are America’s allies at this point?

Ortagus: With all due respect, that’s just another completely inaccurate observation. You could look at the E3 Statement that was put out this morning by the Germans, the British and the French. The British, the Italians, you could go through the list of the people who have said that [Anderson attempts to shut her down here] the world is a better place now that Soleimani’s dead.

Anderson: You talked about the need for de-escalation, with respect.

Ortagus: We have talked about the need for de-escalation. We have called for a peaceful resolution – the President has consistently said that he does not want a war, that we believe we can solve our differences bilaterally. There’s two things that this President has consistently said since the beginning of this Administration, and that is that he wants peace, that he doesn’t want war and that Iran will not get a nuclear weapon. And those two things are not mutually inconsistent.

And, may I add, Brian Hook, our Special Envoy for Iran was just with NATO this morning, briefing them. We are incredibly confident in this public statement. Your audience should know, and should go and read the E3 statement put out by the Germans, the French and the British [Anderson interrupting again here] that contradict what you just said to me. It completely contradicts you.

Anderson: [Now visibly angry] Wha..hang on a minute…hang on a minute. Mike Pompeo said he was disappointed with the Europeans’ reaction. What did he mean by that?

Ortagus: He said that on Friday night, and there’s a brand-spanking new statement this morning from the E3 that we are quite pleased with, that you can go Google right now.

Anderson: [Several seconds of dead air as Anderson attempts to compose herself. Listen to how high-pitched her voice gets here as she tries to control her anger.]  Now that Iran has said it is no longer going to abide by the nuclear deal…

Ortagus: …They’ve been saying that for a long time now…

Anderson: …how lo..how lo…I haven’t fi…with respect, I haven’t finished. There will be those watching the show, uh, tonight who say that the United States has actually brought the world closer to a nuclear Iran. To which you say what?

Ortagus: Iran has been saying for a long time that they wouldn’t abide by the JCPOA. The fact has been that the E3, our European partners, if you go back to September, to the UN General Assembly in New York, and look at that statement, in the beginning of the week that the E3 put out. Again, the E3 called for Iran to come back to the negotiating table for a new and better deal. The Europeans have also said very publicly that they were, they have expressed their displeasure at the Iranian regime, consistently saying over the past, I think it’s been at least six months, that they’re going to defy the JCPOA.

So you don’t have to take America’s word for it. Take the Europeans’ word for it.

Anderson: That… we will leave it there.

[End]

It’s important to note that CNN wasn’t the only corrupt media outlet attempting to roll out this element of the Democrat/media playbook on Monday. Ortagus was also interviewed on the same subject by SkyNews, and by the detestable Leland Vittert on Fox News. The results of both interviews were basically the same, with Ortagus scorching the earth with the leftist hacks.

Again as we have pointed out in the past, none of this media hostility towards Republican presidents originated with Donald Trump. This dynamic of rank liberal bias in the media goes back to the dawn of television as a medium, and really to the 1920s, as communists began to infiltrate journalism schools and newspapers in the United States.

The difference in this administration is the volume and pervasiveness of it all, along with the fact that the corrupt journalists and editors no longer even make a token effort to attempt to hide their bias. At least Walter Cronkite and Tom Brokaw tried to pretend to be even-handed.

All of which makes getting good people into the spokesperson jobs more important than ever. Morgan Ortagus deserves a raise.

That is all.

Trump is Completely Exposing the Democrats and the Media

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

[Note: The following piece is from contributor Gregg Updike. I hope you enjoy his thoughts on the situation with Iran, and how President Trump is exposing the seditious nature of the Democrat Party and its corrupt media toadies – I know I did.]

While it is great that President Trump has recently taken out a couple of head honchos in the Middle East, can anyone doubt that their #2s (in every sense of the word) won’t just take over and continue their fight?  Had Hitler been successfully assassinated in July 1944, Goering would have taken over, then Himmler…

Point being, just because America took out these leaders, it does not mean Iran and ISIS will stack their bats and quit the field.  This means we need to be even more vigilant against reprisals.  I am in no way saying that Trump is wrong in what he is doing, I’m just saying these “foreign entanglements”, and their consequences, are far from over.  I only hope and pray for our president’s safety, and that he soon removes all our assets (targets) including our embassies from that entire region; let the various factions pound each other into the sand.  ​​

Now that we are oil independent, turn the keys over to Israel and let them have at it; let them either win outright with our tacit support, or continue with the tit-for-tat fighting that has been going on there forever.  I don’t care which route Israel takes, and neither should most Americans.  It would be nice, however, if a greater number of Americans of Jewish descent would actually support Trump and his efforts to defeat Israel’s ancient enemies abroad and renounce and work to defeat Anti-Semitic Democratic Politicians here rather than voting lockstep Democrat for whatever reason.​

Once we are out of the region, our doctrine should be: we will flatten any country that causes us harm – period, end of story, with no “nation building/rebuilding”.  Let Europe, without the US propping up NATO, fend for itself against the threats from the Middle East, Russia, and China.  And finally, we must get out of the UN and get the UN out of America.​​

Apart from the transformation of the courts, and the draining of the swamp via Barr and Durham, Trump’s greatest contribution to America will be the total exposure of the media and the Democratic Party as a cabal of anti-American seditionists.  Sooner or later there will be a Bastille Day of sorts, and the domestic enemies of America as founded will be dealt with.  They will be easy to find as they are doing a wonderful job of exposing themselves for all to see.

They are effectively targeting themselves for destruction by openly rooting for our enemies and against America/Trump. Yet these “journalists” and other “experts” are supposed to be among the best and brightest from American institutions of higher learning; how myopic they all are.  In the interim, Trump is driving them insane with their TDS and making them more and more irrelevant.​​

The MSM is, and has been, working hand in hand with America’s domestic enemies to diminish and destroy our constitution, amendment by amendment for decades.  What makes them think the 1st Amendment will survive to protect them if the “Fundamental Change” that the Obama types want to bring to America ever comes to fruition?​

On the foreign side, the NY Times had a reporter named Walter Duranty espousing Stalin’s communist propaganda from Moscow pre WWII, CNN had an embed in Middle East during Gulf War 1 who refused to be debriefed by the Pentagon upon his return after the first war.  And before and during the second Iraq War, CNN had “exclusive” coverage from their Baghdad “correspondent” who was reporting to the world only exactly what Saddam Hussein and Baghdad Bob allowed him to say.

I also remember how many, if not most MSM TV anchors refused to wear US Flag lapel pins stating they didn’t want to be seen rooting for one side or the other – just the facts, uh, sure, right.  Presidents Wilson (D), and FDR (D) most certainly censored the press during their terms, so there is precedent on the regulation of “Free” (Political) Speech.​

History has shown when there is a “Fundamental Change” i.e. revolution, or invasion of a country, or other takeover, the first people purged are the “intelligentsia” including professors of higher learning and the press… ​​

I’m a capable and productive person who is very adaptable and has worked many blue collar jobs and I can survive in almost any political environment by what I bring to the table.  I don’t believe any of these singularly specialized propagandists, masquerading as “experts” or “journalists” are capable of doing anything but being keyboard warriors, and ignorant social justice and environmental agitators.

They will be the first ones eliminated if and when true socialism/fascism/communism comes to America. The constitution as we know it will be gone, and the country will be ruled by a dictator.  No dictator would ever tolerate any such fifth column activity; it will be brutally put down just as sure as the sun comes up every day.​​

I only hope the “useful idiots” that the left has used for their evil anti-American purpose will someday soon wise up and abandon their (ultimately petty) crusades for their own sake.  Of the 328 or so million people in the US, only about 8-10% are the agitators, the loudmouths, the troublemakers to varying degrees; still that can be as many as ten million people young or old enough to actually be active in all the protests/riots that are sure to come this November when Trump wins a second term in a landslide, and the House flips to the GOP.

I truly believe that the other 90+ percent of the country – if not the world – are fundamentally good people who would just love to be able to live their lives in peaceful coexistence without all this conflict and drama. It’s the 10 percenters that must be defeated and ultimately eliminated for peace to prevail.​

The president has shown great acumen in his ability to be ahead of the curve and has been very successful in blunting and exposing the left’s agenda(s).  His second term, starting with the first sign of violence after the election, must be the direct, forceful and complete stopping of all the paid professional protesters/rioters.  Then he must go after all the domestic and foreign money people funding this Anti-American revolution/coup.

The presidential oath states the president’s first obligation is to protect and defend America and its’ Constitution from all foreign and domestic enemies.  All of the people and entities (including and especially the MSM/SM) who have been engaged in this three plus year coup, Logan Act Violations, aiding and abetting election interference (that was actually done by the Democrats), illegally spying on any American, or allowing/authorizing the same, and who promote the subsequent violence should be charged under the RICO Act.

The New York Times Proves Again to be a Vile and Despicable Rag

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

What in the hell is a “bias crime”?  – Believe it or not, the New York Times just got a little worse than it already was in terms of the debasement of the English language. In its fake reporting on the latest in a recent string of despicable anti-Semitic attacks on New York City’s Jewish population, the Times manages to publish 500 words without ever even mentioning that the assailant, who stabbed 5 people in the home of a Hasidic rabbi with a machete, was reportedly a non-white male. [Update: Indeed, the suspect who has been arrested is a black male.]

But that’s not the bad part – it’s just standard operating procedure. Here’s the part where the Times takes yet another step down the road towards an Orwellian 1984:

No one has been charged in that attack, and officials have not determined that it was a bias crime.

What in the hell, you might ask, is a “bias crime”? Well, that is what anyone with half a lick of sense would call a “hate crime” – which this clearly was – but which fake journalists working at the nation’s corrupt media outlets want you to believe was something else. See, in the world of the lunatic political left, it is not possible for a non-white person to “hate” – presumably, they can only “bias”, as if that word were an action verb.

Besides, the anti-Semitic left’s thinking goes, the victims were “ultra-orthodox Jews”, so presumably they had it coming, right? Note the use of that term, “ultra-orthodox Jews”, way up in the piece’s sub-head. That’s done intentionally to describe the VICTIMS of this crime as being somehow not normal, and thus help to justify the heinous attack in the readers’ minds.

That term, by the way, is used to describe “fundamentalist Jews who live in segregated communities in parts of North America, Europe and Israel.” Note that you never see the Times or other corrupt “news” outlets using similar dog-whistling language to describe fundamentalist Muslims who segregate themselves into similar communities so they can live under Sharia law, many of them right there in New York City, where the Muslim population literally fields its own illegal police force, complete with police-style squad cars and flashing lights, with zero repercussions from the city’s Marxist mayor or city council.

But hey, this is the “news” outlet that brought us the “1619 Project,” an organized effort to pollute Americans’ minds with the completely false notion that the real founding of “America” came when the first African slave landed on North American soil in the year 1619, and that literally every facet of our nation’s founding and growth had its very basis in that sad event.

It is the corrupt “news” outlet that, in 2008, assigned dozens of reporters to dig up dirt on Sarah Palin after she was chosen to be the GOP sacrificial lamb to serve as the despicable John McCain’s running mate. The same corrupt “news” outlet that never lifted a finger to attempt to vet the background of Barack Hussein Obama, whose education and medical records remain sealed to this day due to media negligence. It is the same corrupt “news” outlet that proudly placed Sarah Jeong, a notorious anti-white racist, on its editorial board in the summer of 2018.

The New York Times is the same corrupt “news” outlet that spent three solid years pretending the Steele Dossier contained a shred of truth in its campaign to support the Democrat/media “Russia Collusion” narrative. The New York Times is the very same corrupt “news” outlet that actually reported on Ukraine’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election on behalf of the Pantsuit Princess, and on Obama Administration concerns about the impropriety of Hunter and Joe Biden’s influence peddling in that country, and which now pretends that neither event ever happened because that’s what the Democrat/media narrative demands.

The New York Times is the same corrupt “news” outlet that viciously attacked Republicans for wanting to call witnesses in the Senate trial of Bill Clinton in 1998, and now viciously attacks Republicans for wanting to employ the exact same process that was used in the Clinton trial for the upcoming Senate trial of President Trump.

You seriously could never make this stuff up. Not in a million years. But hey, it’s the New York Times, so if you expected anything else, you just haven’t been paying attention.

On a Slow News Thursday the Media Just Made the ‘News’ up

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

The two biggest news ‘stories’ on December 26 weren’t ‘news’ at all.  – The fake news media went semi-wild with two stories on Thursday, pushing them relentlessly hour after hour on a day that was otherwise devoid of sexy stories to push.

The first was about GOP Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski, who all the leftists in the corrupt media establishment are praying will be one of the RINOs in the Senate who will vote to remove President Trump from office in a Senate trail, assuming there ever actually is such a thing. Hey, she was a spineless traitor on the Kavanaugh nomination after she was filmed being bullied in the hallway by Dianne Feinstein – why wouldn’t she commit the ultimate betrayal against a President she has never liked?

It’s a valid question, and it might even happen eventually. The problem is that today’s story being pushed by the corrupt media doesn’t really give us any indication one way or the other.

Here’s what happened: Murkowski was asked by a local Anchorage TV reporter if she approved of the promise made by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell that he would conduct a Senate trial “in total coordination” with White House lawyers. Murkowski answered that “When I heard that, I was disturbed.”

Ok, so, the spineless RINO was disturbed. Murkowski then went onto say this:

“We have to take that step back from being hand in glove with the defense,” Murkowski told KTUU. “And so [when] I … heard what Leader McConnell had said, I happened to think that that has further confused the process.”

Ok, so, the spineless RINO is disturbed and thinks McConnell has confused the process when in fact he has crystal clarified it. What else would we expect from a spineless RINO who desperately wants to pretend to be all things to all people instead of standing on something resembling political principle? The truth is that Murkowski’s dissembling here was exactly what anyone who pays any attention to her normal behavior would have expected from her. It would have been a shock had she in fact said anything else.

But it is a long way from a principle-devoid Senator dissembling as a means of getting a pesky reporter off her back to actually casting a vote to remove a duly-elected President from office. Murkowski’s statement here was not ‘news;’ it was just another day at the office for her.

Then there’s the other story that ‘broke’ early in the afternoon about dead former Senator John McCain funneling “5 reports by Christopher Steele” to James Comey in late 2017. This ‘news’ is contained in the report by DOJ IG Michael Horowitz, a report that was made public on December 9, which was two-and-a-half weeks ago.

This is news? Really? McCain’s efforts to distribute reports funneled to him and his staff by Steele have been well known since early 2018. This business about “five separate reports” is nothing but wordplay. All five of those Steele-manufactured “reports” ended up being included in the infamous fake Dossier, and the thought that the FBI was not aware of their existence until they were handed to Comey by McCain is absurd.

But hey, it was that rarest of rare things of the Trump presidency today – a very slow news day – so the people pushing ‘news’ 24 hours a day to attract viewers and website clicks were desperate.

For the rest of us, it’ll be a relief when the holidays are over and we are back to having half a dozen real news cycles every day.

That is all.

What in the Hell is Going on at Fox News?

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

Tired of all this WINNING yet? Yeah, neither am I. – Every major U.S. stock market index closed at record highs yet again on Monday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average now sitting more than 10,000 points higher than it sat on the day Donald Trump was elected to the presidency back on that blessed day in November, 2016:

The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed 100.51 points higher, or 0.4% at 28,235.89. The S&P 500 gained 0.7% to end the day at 3,191.45 while the Nasdaq Composite jumped 0.9% to 8,814.23.

So naturally, the Democrat politicians who hate ordinary Americans who work hard all their lives and save for their retirements are this very week planning to vote to impeach the President whose policies made this all possible. You could never make these people up. Not in a million years.

 

Rare truth found on Twitter:

Image

What in the hell is going on at Fox News? – On Monday, Fox News came out with yet another poll whose findings are, to say the least, difficult to explain. The poll, conducted by Braun Research out of Princeton, NJ, finds that voters favor the impeachment and removal of President Donald Trump by a margin of 50% to 46%. The poll’s sample of “1000 registered voters” was conducted from December 8 through December 11, basically a week ago.

Four other current polls, by Qunnipiac, CNN, NPR/PBS/Marist and USA Today/Suffolk – all notoriously slanted in favor of Democrats – all find that equation reversed, with voters opposing impeachment and removal by margins ranging from 3% to 6%. Other than NPR/PBS/Marist, all were conducted more recently than the Fox News poll, which may help to explain things. Why Fox waited five days after its poll was completed before reporting on it is a mystery.

But here’s the deal: This conduct and reporting of clear outlier polls by Fox News has now become a very clear and consistent pattern. Coincidentally or not, that pattern began to emerge in 2018 right around the time that former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan was named to a seat on Fox’s board of directors. Probably just a coincidence, but damn, that was also around the time we began to see a decidedly anti-Trump slant emerge on Fox’s daytime “news” programs outside of the Shep Smith hour, which had always been a leftist love-fest.

Coincidence or not, it’s been an interesting pattern to observe. True, Fox did part ways with the insipid Mr. Smith recently, but nobody believes that was due to any concern within management about Smith’s leftist slant, which had been a consistent feature of the channel’s programming throughout the 21st century. But the anti-Trump bias across the remainder of the channel’s daytime programming remains ingrained, and growing.

Back to this latest poll, its’ sample breakdown is very odd, consisting of 46% Democrats, 41% Republicans and just 12% independents. Why Braun would choose to over-sample both Ds and Rs so significantly is hard to explain, since every estimate with any validity says that well over 30% of the public identifies as independents. But that breakdown has to be intentional.

Braun provides no information about where the sample came from geographically within the United States, but there is a big, big difference between a “Republican” living in Rhode Island or some other coastal state and a “Republican” living in Oklahoma or Louisiana or anywhere else out here in Flyover Country. If the poll’s GOP sample consisted mainly of “Republicans” like Mitt Romney or Arnold Schwarzenegger or William Weld or John Kasich, then the poll’s outlier result is entirely explainable.

Regardless, Fox’s on-air talent spent the entire day reporting the results of this clear outlier poll as if it were a real news story, which brings us to the main problem with news outlet-sponsored polls: They are conducted not to accurately gauge real voter attitudes, but to create “news” stories. Fox got to spend all day on Monday reporting the “news” that its own poll shows more voters than not favoring the removal of a duly-elected President from office. That no doubt boosted the channel’s ratings a bit and may have even helped with their street cred among their corrupt media peers.

Never mind that the poll’s results stick out like a sore thumb among those of every other poll released in the last week, Fox’s objective related to the poll – filling a significant amount of air time with a contrarian result – was achieved.

That’s not really “news” as most Americans would define it, but that is what Fox News has now become. The only question remaining for viewers to ask is “Why?”. Unfortunately, the answer to that question is not clear.

Yet.

That is all.

What Really Happened at NAS Pensacola, and Why

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

[Note: I received the following over the weekend. It is long, but well worth the read if you want to really understand the program there, how Navy leadership failed those who were injured and killed in this Islamic terror attack, and the real scope of who was involved. Much of this runs contrary to the official government/media narrative, which should come as no surprise to any informed person. I have added some bolding for emphasis.]

From: A Veteran with 20+ years of service, a Naval Aviator who flew combat missions in Iraq, and had 15+ years in counter-terrorism.  Also served as a flight instructor at NAS Pensacola. 

I reported to Building 633 at Naval Air Station Pensacola in October of 2002. Checking in to flight school is a point in time for each future aviator that is never forgotten. Nobody becomes a Naval Aviator by accident.

Setting foot on the quarterdeck and dropping your orders to get stamped at Naval Aviation Schools Command is the culmination of years of applications, college, physical training, aptitude screenings, FBI background checks, and performance well above your peer group who had also been competing for the coveted “pilot spot”. If you get there via the Naval Academy, ROTC, or Officer Candidate School, when you get to Pensacola, you have “made it”, but you are also just starting.

Instructors and staff refer to the entirety of the training program as “The Pipeline”. The start of The Pipeline is the front desk at Building 633 in Pensacola. This is where the first reality check for future aviators sets in, as class and flights don’t start the next day. There are only a certain number of seats for each API (Aviation Preflight Indoctrination) class, and there is a waiting list. “A-Pool” is where you wait (a pool of people, not of water). Building 633 is where A-Pool is administered, and where the weekly Friday morning muster takes place, and where the next week’s “class up” list is announced.

This is where the terrorist attack took place.

The Naval Aviation Training “Pipeline” at a glance:

-A Pool. Pensacola.

-Aviation Preflight Indoctrination (API), 4 weeks of academic classes and water survival courses. Pensacola.

-Primary Flight Training (150ish hours in a T-6 Texan). Pensacola or Corpus [Christi]

-Advanced Flight Training (Jets, Props, Helicopters). Wings are earned at completion of Advanced. Pensacola (Helicopters), Corpus (Props), Kingsville & Meridian (Jets)

-Fleet Replacement Squadron. (Learning your fleet aircraft). Navy, Marine, and Coast Guard aviators all go through the same training pipeline through Advanced.

It was just after 0700 last Friday when my phone starting ringing. A relative’s best friend called her in a panic because her husband wasn’t responding, and she wanted to know if I knew anything. Luckily, he is a doctor at the hospital at Corry Station, about 3 miles away and nowhere near the shooting and I was able to put them at ease for his safety.

I had a group chat with about 20 officers still in the area. Friends and co-workers were exchanging information, all of them aviators, many still on lock down. Some of them were directly in charge of the response and involved in the investigation. All of this is available now in open media, but this is what I know.

The Saudi terrorist checked in on Monday and seemed “normal”. He held the “dinner party” on Thursday night with more than 10 Royal Saudi Air Force Officers in attendance. At this party, they watched videos of mass shootings, mostly Islamic propaganda. The next morning, Friday, he systematically attacked building 633 while one of his fellow officers followed and filmed, several other Saudis waited and observed the attack from a car.

The attacker started at the Quarterdeck (front desk), and the 3 killed were on duty at the time. Ensign Watson was the duty officer, was shot 5 times and still managed to call first responders and evacuate the building and personally direct them to the location of the shooter prior to dying of his wounds. The other 2 killed were also in the immediate vicinity of the quarterdeck. Many of the wounded were as well, some being wounded as they tried to climb out of windows.

Per Navy policy, none had weapons to defend themselves with.

The first responders that confronted the shooter were from the local sheriff’s department. Two were wounded in the gun battle, and the terrorist was killed. Three active duty Americans were dead, 8 more wounded, 2 deputies wounded. Many of the wounded were shot through the doors of classrooms on multiple floors of building 633. Most of the base remained on lockdown well into the afternoon as the base was systematically searched for the missing Saudi terrorists officers. By day’s end, 6 additional Saudi Arabian officers were in FBI custody, and several were at large in the community and a man-hunt is still underway.

So, over a 5 day span, the terrorist checked in, acquired a handgun with 4 extended magazines and ammunition, posted a manifesto online condemning the US as a “nation of evil” along Islamist and anti-Semitic lines, planned and executed his attack with at least 3 accomplices. At least 10 Saudi Military Officers knew of the plan, and either participated or did nothing to stop it. Each one of these individuals had passed the screening process to come train in the United States. That brief recount of the chain of events begs a series of questions, some of which are easier to answer than others.

Here are some of the most obvious questions, and my best effort to answer them.

  • Was this terrorism?

Absolutely. Much has been made of the lack of a formal declaration by the Military or other Federal Authority, but I understand the delay. Not only is a long term alliance involved (more on that later), but there are several members of the Royal Saudi delegation still at large within the United States. If you declare all of them terrorists, it makes the possibility of an orderly surrender virtually zero. On the off chance that these guys were at Waffle House at the time of the attack and are freaked out and hiding, it’s appropriate to not label them terrorists, yet. Congressman Gaetz has appropriately called this terrorism and called for a review of entire program.

  • Why are we training Saudis in Pensacola?

While the brightest light is on the Saudis in the program, we train aviators from multiple nations in Pensacola. Germany, Sweeden, and Singapore also have a large volume of students train in Pensacola. The obvious comparison to this incident is to the fact that the majority of the 9-11 highjackers trained in Florida. It is an important distinction to note that all of those individuals were civilians and had no interaction with any military training program.

It is equally important to note that 10+ members of the Royal Saudi Air Force knew of a planned mass murder of American military, and either participated in it or agreed in principal to allow it to happen.

Saudi Arabia is currently our strongest ally in the Middle East. We base troops there, we stage equipment there, we get our fuel for operations from there. If we are going to be involved in the Middle East, we need an ally like Saudi Arabia.

We were also allies with Iran, until the Islamic Revolution there resulted in the famous hostage situation.  Then were then allies with Iraq, until Saddam fired on the USS Stark (killing 37 sailors) and subsequently invaded Kuwait. So now we are allied with Saudi Arabia, for now.

  • What is it like training an international student?

Each nation is different, and it was interesting to see some stereotypes play out and interact with different cultures. The Swedish and Norwegians were your typical vikings. The Germans were often humorless, focused, and smart. The Singaporeans were incredibly disciplined, and this group of students policed itself in an impressive manner. Any Sing who did poorly on a flight or test would have the other students ensure they did well the next time around. I’d gladly fight alongside any of these guys any day of the week. I stay in touch with several of my students as their careers advance.

The Saudi students have an entirely different reputation and structure to their training. While all of the other nations employ a form of meritocracy to be in the flight program, the Saudi students are typically the child of a Saudi sheik, politician, or member of a rich/important Saudi family. They all drive luxury vehicles, and flaunt their wealth to the other students and instructors. It isn’t unusual to see a Saudi student wearing designer shoes that cost thousands of dollars in their uniforms instead of their issued shoes or boots.

The Saudis do not stand any of the squadron watches (Like assistant OOD, where the flight schedule is executed), while other nations participate fully in squadron functions. The Saudis also have a cadre of senior officers in Pensacola, ostensibly to monitor and aid the progress of the students. They employ a number of former/retired (US) Navy pilots to serve as tutors to the Saudis, and also to provide instruction on how to properly interact with their US instructors and inside of American society. The retired officers also act as a liaison to the American command structure.

Our instructors are told that we can only instruct the Saudis in flying. Issues regarding disciple, respect, or military bearing, etc all have to be referred to the liaisons. Those issues are rampant among the Saudi contingent, and are well known among the chain of command. While there are certainly some Saudi students who have been respectful and disciplined, the norm is an aloof, arrogant child who seeming feels superior to his instructor.

American and non-Saudi international students are expected to show up to the pre-flight briefs ready to explain all of the concepts required in the flight to the instructor (proof they study and paid attention in class). Saudi students often show to briefs unprepared to meet that standard, and expect the material to be presented to them anew. The norm for the Saudis is to pass the student regardless of performance, unless they are simply a danger to themselves, then they get referred back through the liaisons.

We are paid to move them through the pipeline and deliver them having completed the syllabus. We can’t make them study. One friend had a Saudi student refuse to recover an aircraft from a spin, and simply threw up his hands and stated “If Allah wills it, it will recover.” This was during out-of-control flight, with the aircraft falling several thousand feet per minute. The instructor took controls, recovered from the spin, and returned base. That student eventually graduated.

I have had conversations over the last 3 days with at least a dozen current or former Navy flight instructors. Unanimously, the sentiment is that Saudis should be expelled from training in our program. Not only is there legitimate concern for personal safety and national security, there is a general feeling that they won’t be able to put their feeling aside and provide proper training.

  • Why did the Sheriff Department have to stop the shooting and not active duty watch-standers or military police?

In short, because the Sailors at NAS Pensacola were failed by their leadership.

After the Naval Reserve Center in Chattanooga was attacked by a Muslim terrorist, then Candidate Trump was critical of the policy of military members being disarmed while on duty. The only reason that the Chattanooga body count wasn’t higher, was because the Navy Commanding Officer (an aviator) had disregarded policy and had his personal handgun with him in his office and he confronted the attacker and returned fire. He would later say that he disregarded policy because the safety of his command was his ultimate responsibility. He defended his command that day, and saved lives.

The next ideation of the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) included provisions to allow commanders the discretion to allow CHL holders to bring their personal weapons onto base to defend themselves in similar instances. Tragically, no US commander has had the guts to implement the allowances granted by law.

We didn’t learn our lessons with the Fort Hood shooting, The Navy Yard Shooting, The Chattanooga shooting, so now we have this. Will we finally recognize the threat and allow those who have sworn to defend the constitution of the United States the ability to defend themselves while at work on US soil? I doubt it. Sadly, I think it will take an action similar to what President Trump took with Chief Gallagher to make stubborn and stupid Navy leadership do what is the obvious and correct course of action.

  • Should we have seen this coming?

Absolutely. When I told my father (a retired Naval Aviator) that a foreign student was responsible, he responded “I’ll bet it was a Saudi.”

A brother is a veteran Naval Flight Officer who trained in Pensacola. His response, “It’s probably a Saudi.”
My neighbor from Pensacola who now flies for an airline “Mother F***, you know it was a Saudi!”

For some reason, there is a political push to excuse these attacks as one-off, or that the perpetrator was “radical”. The news is already saying “There is no direct link to a terrorist organization.”…as if ISIS gives out membership IDs and T-Shirts. The Politically Correct folks tell us to not judge an entire religion or culture by the actions of a single individual.

The Factually Correct among us look at this chain of events and see no coincidences. The fact that such a large portion of the Saudi contingent knew of the impending attack and chose to participate, and none chose to stop it show the truth that many have long known but few in leadership will acknowledge. The actions taken by this Royal Saudi Officer were not at all “extremist”. His views and actions were well in line with the mainstream Saudi Officer in the unit.

Defenders of Islam will say that it is a “Religion of Peace” and only “extremists” join the terror groups. With sad irony, many critics of Islamic terrorism have observed the rise of ISIS with their pool of men and resources flowing largely from Sunni Saudi Arabia have said said that it’s the extremist Muslim who is actually fighting, but the peaceful Muslim is the majority….they just write the checks. The example in Pensacola shows us that it’s the minority extremist shooting his classmates, it’s the peaceful Muslim standing alongside filming.

Students of history will know that these terror attacks are not random nor motivated by “extreme” thinking. It is an American tendency to think that history started in 1776, or maybe 1492 at the earliest. Our schools teach world history and battles that took place in Europe as being between empires like the “Romans” and “Ottomans”.

They leave the parts out where it was the HOLY Roman Empire that defeated the ISLAMIC Caliphate in Vienna, September 11th 1683. This military defeat and it’s date is etched into the cultural identity of every Muslim just like the Alamo and San Jacinto are taught to kids in Texas. The only difference is that Texas school children don’t have a religious document telling them that the conquest continues and it is their life-long Jihad to install islam as the law of the entire world.

The events in Pensacola last Friday are minuscule in the scope of world history. It is, however, a perfect illustration of the war of cultures (and yes, religions) that we currently find ourselves as particpants in. While the Politically Correct in Washington will likely downplay the details and work to wipe the event from the headlines to preserve an alliance, the Factually Correct among us are still walking the streets with Saudi terrorists at large.

Those in our military will follow the orders they gave their oaths to follow, though we strongly disagree with them. We will likely continue to risk our lives and work to train people that hate us, and would kill us if given the opportunity. The King of Saudi Arabia can say that the actions don’t reflect those in his Kingdom. The facts make him a liar.

  • Where do we go from here?

1. Immediately allow all Commissioned Officers and senior NCOs (E-7+) who are qualified (military or CHL) to carry a military equivalent or issued weapon while on duty.

2. All Saudi personnel in the US should be restricted to base, and have their quarters searched for weapons. If they had no knowledge, they should be expelled. If they did have knowledge or participated, they should be executed.

3. Suspend training Saudi personnel indefinitely. Only resume the program when the FBI can conduct background checks for each student and officer. Once screened and admitted, Saudi students should be restricted to base and not allowed into the community.

4. Evaluate the “alliance” between the US and Saudi Arabia beyond the fact that they are a client nation buying billions of dollars in weapons and training. Is our strategic relationship with the Saudi government worth the cost inflicted on us by a Saudi population which clearly hates us and continues to do us harm. Do the officers that we train for combat ever actually participate in conflict in a meaningful way that support US interests or relieve demand on US forces. If not, disband the program forever.

5. Be better students of history. Value reality above wishful thinking. Judge cultures and religions by what they do, rather than what they want you to think. Take political blinders off and build and execute policy based on reality rather than wishful thinking.

The New York Times and Newsweek Deliver Thanksgiving Disgraces

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

[Note: Today’s Campaign Update will be on a delayed morning schedule from November 30 through  December 4.]

Ok, so, what else would we expect from the New York Times, right? Right. Still, the headline that ran with an op/ed piece by the corrupt newspaper’s inept economist, Paul Krugman, betrayed a desperate effort to plumb new depths of journalistic malfeasance by the newspaper of fake record:

Image

I couldn’t tell you what Krugman says in his latest bit of lame-brainery because it’s behind the Times’s firewall, and we here at Today’s Campaign Update are not in the habit of lending monetary support to the faking of America’s news. But let’s be honest: Nothing Krugman has to say is worth noting anyway. After all, he’s the circus clown who predicted that the election of Donald Trump to the presidency would bring about the total collapse of the U.S. economy, a collapse from which America would “never recover.”

D’oh!

It’s fair to note that Krugman and the Times were not the only corrupt fake journalist/fake news outlet to disgrace themselves on Thanksgiving. Jessica Kwong, a fake reporter for the on-life-support Newsweek – which no longer can afford to exist as a real magazine but still fakes the news in the digital space – issued a tweet early on Thanksgiving that said:

Image

But later in the day, news broke that President Trump had in fact flown out to Afghanistan in the wee hours of the morning to make a surprise visit and spend Thanksgiving with U.S. military personnel at Bagram Air Field. There he not only dined with the troops, he actually served them their dinner, laughed and joked with them and just generally enjoyed a rare chance to be with real Americans and the troops he loves and supports:

 

This early afternoon revelation led to the fake, corrupt journalist Kwong issuing this “correction”:

An “honest mistake.” Yeah, sure, right, uh-huh. That’s an interesting way to describe going to press with a completely false story with zero sourcing or journalistic process in just another corrupt effort to do harm to the President’s reputation. In today’s 100% dishonest, corrupt media, there is no such thing as an “honest mistake.”

Kwong’s humiliation led to the creation of this sterling Twitter meme:

Image

To be honest, I don’t remember a time during my 60+ years on earth when Newsweek was a reputable news source, but I suppose it might have been the case before I was born. In any event, it and the New York Times have certainly surrendered all pretense over the last four years.

That is all.

How the Coup Plotters Have Ensnared Themselves in a Trap of Their Own Making

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

I’m old enough to remember when MSNBC’s fake on-air talent was condemning others for spreading conspiracy theories. – There really are no depths to which MNSBC and CNN will not plumb in order to give Deep State enemies of the people a paid microphone on their fake news programs.

The latest hired contributor at MSNBC is the sleazy ex-U.S. attorney Andrew Weissman, otherwise known as the guy who really ran the Mueller Witch Hunt and wrote the Mueller Report. Appearing with fake host and former George W. Bush adviser, the truly demented Nicolle Wallace on Friday, Weissman made it clear that, once the current Democrat/media Ukraine narrative has crashed and burned in spectacularly failed fashion, the Deep State coup plotters plan to go right back to pushing their spectacularly failed Russia Collusion conspiracy theory.

Asked by Wallace about the alleged call between Ambassador Gordon Sondland and President Trump, which supposedly was placed on Sondland’s unsecured cell phone in a Kiev restaurant, Weissman speculated that it’s all part of a grand conspiracy by Mr. Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin to fix the 2020 election!

I swear I do not make this stuff up:

“You know that call is going to be monitored by the Russians… Do you care about the Russians having it?”

“Why weren’t the president and Ambassador Sondland worried about the fact that the Russians would undoubtedly in Ukraine be able to hear this conversation?” he then asked.

“If your thinking is ‘I don’t care because the Russians will be siding with me in the 2020 election,’ then you’re all on the same team,” the former Mueller prosecutor hypothesized.

So, there you have it, folks: The Democrats and their willing media co-conspirators signaling their plans for the next chapter in their never-ending coup d’etat efforts. No doubt they already have folks at Fusion GPS, Crowdstrike and Christopher Steele – along with some high-powered law firm through which they can launder all the money – signed to contracts to assist in the next effort to frame a President of the United States.

This latest revelation by one of the leading figures in the endless series of coup plots goes back to the question posed here at the Campaign Update on November 10: How Does the Never-ending Coup d’etat End?

Of course, the better question to ask is, does this never-ending coup d’etat effort ever end? The answer to that is obviously a resounding “NO.” It will just continue, morphing into the next false narrative even as the previous narrative crashes and burns, becoming increasingly shrill, careless and violent as time goes on and the plotters’ frustrations mount.

This is a game the Democrats can play with America’s very existence since they control 95% of the corrupt national news media, and it is a game they feel they must play since Donald Trump’s very presence in the office of the presidency threatens to expose and destroy the continued ability of the DC Swamp denizens to fleece the nation – and other nations, as Quid Pro Joe and his ne’er-do-well son Hunter blatantly did in Ukraine and China.

Make no mistake about this: Donald Trump is going to be re-elected next year in what is shaping up to become an epic electoral college landslide. He is going to be President of the United States of America for five more years, and the never-ending coup d’etat will continue for the duration, and even after he has left office.

The simple fact of the matter is that the coup plotters and their media co-conspirators have no choice now. They’ve come this far and completely exposed themselves to anyone who is paying attention. Even if the Democrats wanted to chuck it all and try to focus on actually doing real government stuff, they are completely bankrupt of any policy ideas that are not already proven failures.

Add that to this new reality: The Republicans are suddenly, finally starting to strike back. We now know the Horowitz Report, as timid and white-washing as it no doubt will be in its findings, will be released on December 9. We know that Attorney General William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham continue to expand the scope of their own investigation into the origins of the never-ending coup. And we know that Senate Republicans are gearing up to mount a long and aggressive Senate trial effort once the House sends over its inevitable baseless articles of impeachment, with even Lindsey Graham suddenly sending out letters and demanding all sorts of information from the State Department.

Thus, even if the Democrats wanted to bring the coup plot to a screeching halt, the inertia they’ve created with their Russia Collusion and Ukraine hoaxes now makes that impossible to achieve.

How does the never-ending coup end? It doesn’t, because the Democrats and their willing, corrupt media co-conspirators have ensnared themselves in a trap of their own making.

That is all.

Another Epic Failed Hearing for the Democrats, Another Mass Shooting

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

Just a coincidence, no doubt. – So, with their corrupt media cohorts struggling to spin their disastrous first day of impeachment circus hearings to their advantage, the Democrats were desperate all Thursday morning to change the narrative. There were no bombshells in the testimony of either Bill Taylor or the dapper dandy George Kent, no revelations of anything resembling impeachable behavior by President Donald Trump, nothing for anyone in the Democrat/media/deep state Axis of Disinformation to hang their rhetorical hats on.

As a result, it was a very slow news morning for America for once. And then it all magically changed, with yet another school shooting, this time in a high school in Santa Clarita, California, where a 15 year-old male student shot at his fellow students, injuring at least six and killing at least one. In the coming days, we will no doubt be told that this “lone wolf” suffered from mental issues that required him to take multiple prescription medications. We will learn that he comes from a broken family, that he had severe discipline issues at school and multiple run-ins with law enforcement over a period of many months, and probably that he was even known to the local FBI office.

That’s the seeming script for these things that our nation knows all too well by now. Script or not, the latest mass school shooting provides Democrat politicians the opportunity to change the day’s narrative on a dime, and their corrupt media toadies the ability to quit talking about the foundering impeachment circus and shift to promoting gun control and demonizing Republicans, the NRA and any American citizen who believes in the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution.

Within two hours of news of the shooting hitting the airwaves, Kamala Harris had a new gun control ad out on her Twitter account:

That’s some fast work right there. It’s funny how this happens, isn’t it? But surely just a coincidence. Right? I mean, to believe otherwise you would have to believe the worst things imaginable about certain people in our government, wouldn’t you?

I’ve seen folks promoting conspiracy theories about this subject on social media and elsewhere in recent months, but I’ve always just dismissed it all as rank paranoia. So, I thought, let’s disprove any notion of “conspiracy” here and look at what happened the last time the Democrats had such a miserable failure in a nationally-televised congressional hearing. I didn’t have to go back very far in time to do that – just less than four months ago.

Let’s go back to July 24-25 to see the exact same sequence of events happening again. On July 24, Special Counsel Robert Mueller appeared before a joint hearing of several House committees to talk about his report which failed to nail President Trump or even provide a viable roadmap for his impeachment, its goal from the outset.

Remember how Mueller appeared frail, barely in control of his mental faculties, unable to remember the simplest details about the investigation he supposedly led and the report he supposedly authored.  Remember what an abject disaster that hearing was for the Democrat Party, so disastrous that even their most corrupt media toadies at CNN were forced to acknowledge its abject failure to advance the ball for the never-ending coup d’etat.

What happened the very next day? A mass shooting in California’s San Fernando Valley, in which a man killed four people, including his father and brother, and wounded two more at a total of four different crime scenes.

Oh.

What happened barely a week after the San Fernando shootings, as congress was getting out of town for its month-long recess, which would inevitably cause a bit of a vacuum where their favored narratives were concerned? On August 3, not one but TWO mass shootings, this time in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio. Big shootings, too – a total of 32 people killed and another 51 injured.

Every one of the 22 or so then-candidates for the Democrat nomination immediately made narratives about gun control and “white supremacy” their key campaign talking points for the entire duration of the congressional recess. The August narratives were set in stone.

Just another coincidence, no doubt. To think otherwise is, well, it’s unthinkable. Isn’t it?

Since then, it’s been very slow on the mass shooting front. Oh, you have had the usual drive-by and gang-related shootings across the country, and fights at big parties in Greenville, Texas and Long Beach, California that resulted in multiple deaths and injuries, but it’s a big country with 330 million citizens and that’s going to be an inevitable part of our societal landscape.

Now, think about what’s been happening in the media narrative space since congress got back in early September. The whole Ukraine narrative started percolating to the surface shortly after congress resumed its work to destroy the country, and that narrative has dominated the news ever since. The Democrats and their media toadies were having a field day, and they knew it.

But then they made yesterday’s strategic error, and suddenly things were getting uncomfortable.

Just like clockwork, yet another school shooting takes place, and here we go on the gun control narrative one more time.

Surely just coincidence. In fact, surely just a rather amazing string of coincidences. But amazing they have been.

Right?

That is all.

GOP House Intel Members Executed a Plan for a Change

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

Tired of all this #WINNING yet? Yeah, neither am I. – Ho-hum. You know what’s coming, don’t you? That’s right: The Dow Jones Industrial average and the S&P 500 closed yet again at all-time record highs on Wednesday. Morning trading was way up as investors began to realize the clownish House Democrats were going down in flames one more time in their latest attempt to frame President Donald Trump, but then pulled back somewhat in the afternoon when news came that US and Chinese representatives had hit a snag in their trade negotiations.

Speaking of the Schiff/Pelosi/Media impeachment circus, we summarized the day’s glorious action with a late afternoon post yesterday, but it’s important to note why the Republican committee members were so successful and effective in that hearing. That’s important to understand, because it has been a rare outcome in the past for Republicans, and it shows some very promising developments are taking place within the House GOP caucus.

Let’s go these reasons:

Strategic thinking – In a somewhat stunning development, the Republican members of the committee came into the hearing with an actual strategy. This is something the Democrats have always done, at least going as far back as the Nixon impeachment. But the Republicans have, in all but a tiny few instances, always avoided strategic planning like it was a communicable disease.

I’ve actually testified in a couple of congressional hearings myself, staffed executives who were testifying in several others, and sat through dozens more over the years, and it has always been striking to me to witness the difference in coordination between the Democrats and the Republicans. The Democrats invariably come into every hearing with a clear goal in mind for outcome, assignments on who covers which specific topics during their 5 minutes of questioning, and excellent message discipline. Republicans typically seem to show up with no goal in mind, no discernible assignments and the message discipline of a bunch of alley cats.

I don’t know if credit is due to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Ranking Member Devin Nunes or Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan – who was transferred to House Intel just for this hearing process – but whoever it was that led this effort to do some strategic planning, kudos to you.

They had a goal in mind – And that goal was to decimate the witnesses before them. Not to play nice with them, not to waste precious time slathering praise on these two guys for their service to the country – or in George Kent’s case, his father’s and grandfather’s service – not to just question what they had to say in some half-assed manner, which has always been their norm in these settings, but to destroy their stories and reveal them for what they are: A pair of disloyal deep state hacks.

This goal became evident right from the start, when Devin Nunes basically insulted them as a couple of operatives who managed to pass muster in Schiff’s capital basement interrogation process so well that they became his star witnesses. Every Republican who asked questions was tough, pointed and precise, taking care not to needlessly insult them and set off the snowflake battalion among the perpetual outrage mob on Twitter, but to destroy the narrative they were pushing point by point.

That was the goal, and by the end of the day, the objective had been met.

They had clear assignments – Rep. Nunes was the stage-setter. His opening statement, when the live TV audience was at its maximum, was a scorched-earth devastation of the pathological Schiff personally and of the Democrats’ four-year effort to frame the President. You could tell how effective it really was by observing how the Democrat toadies in the media reacted to it: The shrillness of their response to anything Nunes does always has a directly inverse relationship to his level of effectiveness.

Jim Jordan had the assignment of ripping Bill Taylor’s credibility to tiny shreds, point by point.  This was no easy assignment, because Taylor – unlike Kent, who relied on co-opting the military service record of his ancestors to lend himself credibility – really did serve his country with valor during the Vietnam war before becoming a career bureaucrat. So, Jordan had to rip Taylor’s confusing and byzantine narrative to shreds, reducing him to a mumbling heap, and do it all with a smile on his face. He did all that and more, with Taylor even chuckling along with him at several points.

Everyone else who asked questions, from John Ratcliffe to Chris Stewart to Elise Stefanik to Michael Turner, addressed clearly-defined subject matter and were very effective. As is the case in any team effort, their level of effectiveness was no doubt enhanced by having a clear plan and strategic approach.

They had message discipline – The Republicans came into this hearing with several key messages they wanted to hammer over and over and over again in order to beat them into the collective mind of the viewing public. Among those key messages were:

– This whole process is a sham led by perhaps the single most dishonest member of congress;

– There was no quid pro quo;

– Where’s the whistleblower, and why won’t Adam Schiff be honest about his contact with him?;

– The elected President, not unelected bureaucrats like you guys, gets to determine U.S. foreign policy;

– Neither of these witnesses has any first-hand knowledge about anything relevant;

– The real bad actors relevant to Ukraine are Joe and Hunter Biden.

These messages were pounded home repeatedly, with GOP questioning leaving the two witnesses completely stumped and wordless time after time. In the end, it was Chris Stewart who got to deliver the right uppercut that devastated the Bidens:

Of course the answer is no, which is why neither of these very DC Swampy creatures could muster a response.

The Bottom Line – Unless Schiff and San Fran Nan have some witness waiting in the wings who is going to make some stunning new accusation backed-up by real, first-hand knowledge and corroborated by others, they would be far better off disbanding this budding fiasco today rather than extending the pain for another two full weeks or more.

After yesterday, they have a clear rationale for doing so, and for pinning it on the President. They could gather all their corrupt press toadies together for a live conference, and tell them that the testimony of these two third-hand gossips and nasty questioning by the GOP members of them shows that it would unproductive to continue this process. They wouldn’t want their other third-hand witnesses to be “bullied,” after all.

They could then blame it all on President Trump and his firm assertion of executive privilege in refusing to allow his top advisors, who might actually have some first-hand information about something relevant, to testify before Schiff’s clown show.

And then they could all go to the capitol basement and huddle up to work on their next false narrative designed to frame President Trump.

Of course, Nan and Bug-eyes aren’t clear-headed enough to do that, so the nation will be subjected to this clown show until it comes to a bitter end.

That is all.

Fake Whistleblower’s Lawyer Outs the Coup d’etat in a Tweet

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

You seriously could never in a million years make this stuff up. – The lawyer for the leaker/spy Eric Ciaramella, whom the media refer to as a “whistleblower” so they can pretend to not know his name, was himself in the news last night when some enterprising soul published several tweets from his Twitter account from 2017.

The lawyer’s name is Mark Zaid, a leftist activist who has been literally shopping around for fake “whistleblowers” since the start of the Trump Administration. To his credit, unlike most leftist activists who skulk around in the dark trying to disguise their seditious efforts to undermine the country, Zaid has worn his beliefs on his sleeve via his Twitter account, littering his messages with hashtags like #rebellion, #impeachment, #resistance and even, yes, #coup, as in this message below:

Note that Zaid relates the beginning of the #coup to the elevation of long-time Deep State skunk Dana Boente to the post of Acting Attorney General after President Trump fired fellow Deep State skunk Sally Yates. Hey, guess where Boente serves today?  Why, he is the chief legal counsel at Christopher Wray’s dumpster fire of corruption and incompetence, aka, the FBI.

Now you know one big reason why so much Deep State skunkery continues to emanate from that dumpster fire agency.

Here’s another tweet lawyer Zaid issued in July of 2017:

We will get rid of him.” The “we” no doubt referring to the coup cabal embedded within the FBI and DOJ, and the then-young Mueller Witch Hunt that was then in the process of becoming staffed with leftist activist thugs just like Zaid.

There are more, including one in which Zaid predicts that CNN will play a key role in the ultimate removal of Trump from office. Wonder how he knew that?

Do any of you still think that we are not in the midst an ongoing, three-year-long coup d’etat?

This is deadly serious stuff, folks, a real, true attempt by a major political party and the national news media to overturn a national election. This isn’t happening in Venezuela or Chile or Nicaragua or some other banana republic: This is happening in the United States of America.

If the target of the coup, President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three glorious words that drive lefties, progressives, liberals, socialists, Marxists and all the other things we call “Democrats” crazy) is worried out it, though, he isn’t showing it. In fact, during his rally last night in Monroe, Louisiana, he hilariously read Zaid’s coup tweets to the audience:

“It’s all a hoax. It’s a scam. And you know who helps them? These people right back here – the media.”

Exactly.

That is all.

The Media Goes Full Fake News With Wednesday’s Post-Election Narrative

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

This is getting to be repetitive, granted, but the corrupt news media is lying to all of us yet again. – All day on Wednesday, your fake, corrupt national news media told you that the Tuesday night elections in Kentucky and Mississippi were a “referendum on Donald Trump,” and that he suffered a terrible result. But the truth of the actual election outcomes paints an entirely different – and almost entirely “red” – picture.

This wonderful table shows you exactly what the results were in the statewide elections in those two states:

No photo description available.

So, despite the claims coming from the Democrat/media/deep state Axis of Disinformation, what really took place in those two southern states was a serious Red Wave. Republican candidates won every statewide office by wide margins, except for the governor’s race in Kentucky. Three of those GOP victories involved flips of offices previously held by Democrats, making the wipeout even more impressive.

Oh.

That governor’s race in Kentucky involved Republican Matt Bevin, one of the most unpopular governors in America, running against Andy Bashear, a moderate Democrat who campaigned like he was the second coming of 1960s-era Texas Democrat Governor John B. Connally. The Axis of Disinformation wants you to believe that that single race means that President Trump is incredibly unpopular in Kentucky and, by some incredible leap of logic, even in Mississippi, since the President held a rally in Kentucky right before election day in a bold effort to get Bevin over the top.

But here’s the reality on that: Recent polls in that race showed Bevin trailing by as much as 20 percentage points, but Trump’s visit enabled the beleaguered Republican to end up coming within half a percentage point of actually winning the damn election. In fact, only the presence of a pissant Libertarian on the ballot enabled Bashear to hang on in the race. The jackass Libertarian ended up with more than 27,000 votes in a race Bashear nominally “won” by about 5,200.

Even better, GOP officials believe they have evidence of massive Democrat voter fraud taking place in the race – what else is new? – and are demanding a recount of the vote. Somehow, we are supposed to believe that more than 100,000 voters ticked off the Democrat’s name in the governor’s race, but then made the effort to go down the ballot and vote for Republican Dan Cameron in the attorney general’s race, a proposition that, given ingrained voter habits, is incredibly unlikely.

Cameron, by the way, became the first African American to ever win the office of Attorney General in the state of Kentucky. An honest news media establishment would have made him the real story of the evening.

But as we all know, and see clearly demonstrated to us 1,000 times every week, we no longer have an honest news media establishment in our country, and Wednesday’s coordinated narrative on the elections in these two states clearly demonstrated it one more time.

That is all.

Fake Media Maintains its Blackout Despite Paul Sperry’s Whistleblower Report

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

This should surprise no one who has been paying attention. – Fake news outlets across the national Democrat media spectrum maintained their conspiratorial wall of silence following the report by Paul Sperry at RealClearInvestigations identifying deep state skunk Eric Ciaramella as Adam Schiff’s fake whistleblower.

True to their role as the propaganda wing of the Democrat Party, fake media outlets from the New York Times to CNN and all newspapers and TV outlets in between pretended that a “whistleblower” is somehow entitled to anonymity. That is simply a falsehood.

Whistleblowers under federal law are entitled to protection from retaliation from their employers, so long as they are not revealed to be abject liars. That’s all, and we now know beyond any doubt at all – in fact have known since the transcript of the call was made public – that this particular fake whistleblower’s statement contained all manner of falsehoods, whether intentional or not.

But your fake news media decided in unison in 2016 that it was now in business for one reason and one reason only: To oppose Donald Trump. Thus, the only response by these despicable hacks has been the Washington Post attacking Sperry’s character – because of course they did – and the New York Times hilariously claiming it has no idea of the whistleblower’s identity.

So, what we have here is yet another Democrat/media-constructed fantasy, a fable based on an utterly false interpretation of federal whistleblower laws. Because that’s what your fake media does for its Democrat masters.

It’s all designed to protect not just Ciaramella himself, but Adam Schiff and his staff, who we know coordinated with the leaker and his lawyers in advance, and most likely wrote the leaker’s complaint for him. Schiff initially said he was eager to have the fake “whistleblower” testify before his Soviet-style inquisition, but that was before real journalists like Mr. Sperry outed his coordination activities.

Now, Schiff is desperate to bury his star fake witness, and the media toadies run around like Sgt. Schultz yelling “I know no-thing! No-thing!”

It would be hilarious if it weren’t all such a tragedy for our nation.

That is all.

Pelosi Creates Yet Another Impeachment Scam

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

If the Democrats didn’t have scams, they’d have nothing at all. – Lindsey Graham actually did something productive last week, and it deserves mentioning here. Despite the fact that there is literally zero chance that the resolution he introduced last Thursday condemning the sham fake impeachment process being run in the House right now could ever obtain the 60 votes needed for cloture, Graham’s ability to convince 50 of the 53 Senate Republicans to sign onto the resolution as sponsors demonstrated the resolve of the Senate majority to oppose any product from the current House process.

This effort by Graham produced two excellent results. First, it outed three GOP RINOs as being so disloyal that they can’t even vote to condemn the obviously anti-American, Soviet-style process being run in the basement of the Capitol building by Schiff and his gang of thugs. Those three senators are Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, and of course, Mitt Romney, the Murderers Row of Senate RINOs. It would be sad if it weren’t so tiresome and predictable. Alaska, Maine and Utah voters: What in the hell are you thinking?

The second excellent result produced by Graham’s resolution is that it put pressure on Pelosi to do something to anoint her sham process with some imprimatur of legitimacy. The obvious way to do that would be to hold a vote of the full House on a resolution to authorize a formal impeachment inquiry, a step that has been taken in every previous impeachment process in American history. Initial reports from our fake news media Monday morning indicated Pelosi would be doing exactly that. Silly us for believing anything our fake news media says anymore.

Those reports were, of course, completely false. Pelosi can’t hold a vote to authorize a formal impeachment inquiry for the simple fact that she still does not have enough members of her pathetic caucus willing to support such a resolution. She still has 35-40 Democrats who were elected in GOP-majority districts in 2018, and all of them know they will be signing their re-election chances away if they vote to authorize a formal, actual impeachment inquiry.

But that’s not the only problem Pelosi and Schiff have here. They also know that a vote to begin a real, formal impeachment inquiry would result in GOP house members on the relevant committees having the same powers to subpoena and question witnesses that the Democrats have under the current Soviet inquisition. Even worse, the Trump Administration would also then have similar rights and powers.

In other words, a formal impeachment inquiry would function in the way the American system of justice is supposed to function under our Constitutional Republican form of government, and we all know the Democrats can’t have that.

Thus, Pelosi, faced with the procedural roadblock set up by Graham’s resolution, decided she had to do what she and her fellow Democrats always do when one of their scams fails: Create another scam. So, she huddled up with her buddies over at Lawfare, who really run the House of Representatives these days, and came up with – you got it – another scam.

This scam will involve a vote – ostensibly of the “full House” – on a resolution “Directing certain committees to continue their ongoing investigations as part of the existing House of Representatives inquiry into whether sufficient grounds exist for the House of Representatives to exercise its Constitutional power to impeach Donald John Trump, President of the United States of America, and for other purposes.”

In other words, it is simply a vote to authorize the continuation of the current Soviet-style inquisition.  Pelosi believes that, with the always-willing help of the army of Democrat toadies in the fake news media, she will be able to convince the nation that this vote, since it involves all members of the House, somehow legitimizes her illegitimate process.

Doing it this way will also allow her 40 or so reluctant members to claim to voters next year that, hey, they didn’t vote for “impeachment,” they just voted to continue an inquiry into whether an impeachment was justified. See the difference? Yeah, neither will most of their voters.

But here’s the catch that she and Schiff are counting on: If even one Republican member of the House votes “yes” when her resolution comes to a vote on Thursday – and a handful have already indicated they support the current process – then they and their media toady army will be able to claim that this vote was “bipartisan.”

Pelosi and her Lawfare lieutenants are also hoping that this vote, if “bipartisan,” will be able to convey the judicial enforcement authority that their sham process currently lacks. This lack of authority is why the “subpoenas” that have been sent to the executive branch by Schiff thus far are nothing more than toothless letters with no enforcement authority.

This is San Fran Nan’s philosophy of governance: When nothing you do is legitimate, you do everything you can to legitimize the illegitimate. In this latest scam, she’s counting on that one Republican vote, and you can be sure that there is a Mitt Romney clone in the GOP caucus just salivating over the chance to give it to her.

That is all.

Lindsey Graham and Matt Gaetz: A Stark Contrast in Style and Effectiveness

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

You can forget about the Senate doing anything effective about the sham non-impeachment process being run by Adam Schiff and San Fran Nan. –  House Republicans are on their own on this deal. Lindsey Graham gave that reality away during the first minute of his appearance on Sean “Tick-Tock” Hannity’s tediously-repetitive program on Fox News last night:

 

Here’s the crucial exchange:

Hannity: Adam Schiff is now a fact witness – would you be able to call him to testify before your committee?

Graham: I doubt it. The whole impeachment inquiry has been referred to the [Senate] Intelligence Committee.

Oh.

Graham goes on to talk about a “resolution” he plans to introduce on the floor of the Senate today, “objecting” to the raging abuses of process and power being employed by Pelosi and Schiff, but he knows that all it will take is an objection from a single Democrat to kill that meaningless gesture. But Graham’s entire life is built around meaningless gestures and interviews with the always-reliable Hannity these days, so that’s to be expected.

The only meaningful thing Graham said in that entire 6:47 clip is the part about everything being assigned to the Intelligence Committee. That would be the black hole of deep state toadies chaired by RINO Richard Burr in name only, and in fact run for the last 3 years by Virginia Democrat Mark Warner, who has led Burr around on a leash like John McCain used to lead Graham around. Yes, that Senate Intelligence Committee.

So, Mitch McConnell, by assigning everything to do with impeachment to the wrong committee – there can be no possible jurisdictional reason why an impeachment process focused on diplomatic dealings involving military aid to a foreign government should be assigned to the committee that has oversight over the nation’s spy community – has ensured that the Senate will do absolutely nothing to conduct any real oversight of its own until articles of impeachment have been delivered at his doorstep.

We might – and should – admire Majority Leader Yertle (thanks to Larry Schweikart for that dead-on nickname for McConnell) for his tenacity in getting President Trump’s judicial nominees confirmed, and to Graham’s credit, all of those nominations go through his Judiciary Committee. But we should never forget that McConnell is a DC Swamp critter to the core, and that his real loyalties in life are to the maintenance of his own privileges, perks and power. He’s more than happy to let Pelosi and Schiff conduct their KGB-style interrogations of witnesses in the Capitol basement with zero oversight from the Senate in the form of hearings or investigations, or indeed without even a peep of protest emerging from his reptilian lips.

So, Republicans in the House are on their own, and up until yesterday, they – and only a handful of them at that – had also limited their activities to issuing sure-to-fail resolutions on the House floor and making appearances on Fox News. But, thanks to Florida Republican Matt Gaetz, who understands that his Party has been bringing a hand grenade to a nuclear war thus far in this fight, that all changed on Wednesday, at least temporarily.

Gaetz led a group of about 35 or so GOP House members down to the Capitol basement hearing room in which Schiff and his fellow Soviet Democrats have been conducting their witness interrogations. There, the Republican protesters held a peaceful demonstration outside the room, held a press availability and generally disrupted the process, stealing a tactic the Democrats and their surrogates use 1,000 time every day all across America. Naturally, the fake news media uniformly described the demonstration as “storming” the hearing room. Because, you know, these are Republicans, and the media simply must use Nazi analogies and imagery anytime possible.

But the point here is that what Gaetz and his fellow Republicans did was effective, in stark contrast to what Graham is planning to do today with his meaningless “resolution.” They got the attention of fake news media outlets outside of Fox News, and even got coverage on the network nightly news programs, something their other antics pretty much never do.

So Gaetz and a handful of fellow GOP House members like Mark Meadows, Devin Nunez and Jim Jordan get it. They understand the real nature of the war that is going on here, and that it is a war not just on President Trump, but on every Republican and every citizen in this country. That’s good.

But here’s the thing: If the demonstration Gaetz led on Wednesday ends up being a one-time thing, then it’s just a stunt, one that will be forgotten by the end of today. To be effective and to move public opinion, these Republicans need to be back there, or doing something similar, today, and tomorrow and every day next week and the week after that and the week after that, until they force Pelosi and Schiff to open up this dark, Soviet-style process to the light of day.

Gaetz’s instincts are good, and the tactic he led yesterday was quite effective. But will he have any follow-through? Guess we’ll find out today.

Don’t hold your breath.

That is all.

Durham Will Interview Brennan – Explains This Week’s Deep State Media Push

Today’s Campaign Update, PART III
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Suddenly, it all becomes clear. – News broke on Tuesday that, consistent with earlier rumors, U.S. Attorney John Durham has formally requested an interview with Obama-era CIA Director John Brennan, and plans to also interview Obama-era Director of National Intelligence James Clapper:

This news explains why the Usual Suspects in the fake news media have been putting on a full court fake news press in their support of their Deep State heroes. As reported previously here, Saturday was the New York Times’ day to do the toadying, Sunday was NBC’s day, and Tuesday was Politico’s day in the shilling well.

Brennan himself had obviously gotten wind of Durham’s intentions early this month, as he nervously speculated on October 3 to MSCIA’s fake host Nicolle Wallace that he might well have to testify to Durham and his investigators:

Check out that body language. That is one very nervous liar right there.

Brennan has already been revealed to have lied multiple times when he testified along with Comey and Clapper before he House Intelligence Committee back in 2017, but perjury should be the least of the issues Durham will want to explore with the former chief spy.

The Saturday deep state narrative promotion piece by the NYTimes noted that, while Durham has already interviewed “dozens” of current and former Obama officials during the course of his investigation, he had yet to question the principles who we know organized and executed the effort to fix the 2016 election and then to remove a sitting President via a coup d’etat.

Today’s news proves that he’s getting around now to questioning the targets.

Cool.

That is all.

Sunday was NBC’s Day to Shill for the Deep State Coup Cabal

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

The fake news outlets are taking turns parroting the Coup Cabal’s talking points. – Saturday was the New York Times day, and Sunday, it was NBC’s turn at the fake news bar as the Coup Cabal continues to try to build an exculpatory narrative in advance of the release of the Horowitz report. We’ve seen this repeatedly over the past few years, as America’s fake news media continues to toady for its Democrat masters.

NBC News started its shilling right at the top, with a hilariously-slanted headline: “AG Barr expands mysterious review into origin of Russia investigation.”  Oooooohhhh, it’s all “mysterious” and stuff. The sub-head is even better: “If U.S. Attorney John Durham is conducting a criminal investigation, it’s not clear what allegations of wrongdoing are being examined.”

Oh, hey, guess who no doubt fed NBC that headline and sub-head: Could it be Obama CIA Director John Brennan? It seems likely, given this passage hidden way down in the bowels of the piece:

If Durham is conducting a criminal investigation, it’s not clear what allegations of wrongdoing are being examined. The Justice Department has not detailed any, and a spokeswoman declined to comment for this story.

“I don’t know what the legal basis for this is,” Brennan said, calling the probe “bizarre.”

So, Saturday’s theme parroted by the New York Times was that, hey, the Coup Cabal didn’t do anything wrong in the sham Clinton email “investigation,” and Sunday’s theme is “the Barr/Durham investigation is all mysterious and bizarre and stuff, or something.”

The NBC piece is an obvious, blatant effort to paint the Barr/Durham investigation to be somehow illegitimate, which explains the use of Brennan-fed code words like “bizarre,” “mysterious,” and “unusual” throughout. Of course, there is nothing mysterious or unusual about the investigation at all, and Barr spent a ton of time in May explaining in great detail why he was pursuing the investigation and what he and Durham would be looking at.

NBC even details much of that in its own piece:

Michael Horowitz, the Justice Department inspector general, has conducted an investigation into the FBI’s actions in launching the Russia probe.

But Barr has said he believes an IG inquiry is not sufficient to answer the questions he has about how the investigation began. In doing so, he made comments suggesting Durham had authority only a criminal investigation could provide.

In a May 31 interview with CBS News, Barr said Horowitz “doesn’t have the power to compel testimony, he doesn’t have the power really to investigate beyond the current cast of characters at the Department of Justice. His ability to get information from former officials or from other agencies outside the department is very limited.”

Barr also said in the interview that the purpose of the Durham review is to make sure there was not inappropriate surveillance of the Trump campaign.

“I had a lot of questions about what was going on,” he said. “Some of the facts that I’ve learned don’t hang together with the official explanations of what happened.”

Ok, so, what is “mysterious,” “bizarre,” or “unusual” about any of that? Barr is concerned about the origins of myriad FBI/CIA/DOJ-sanctioned efforts to spy on the Trump Campaign/Trump Transition/Trump Administration were improperly originated and conducted, and that no one has made any real effort to get to the bottom of why that all happened and who authorized the spying in the first place. So, he has detailed Durham to lead a probe to get to the bottom of it all.

IG Horowitz has no power to subpoena witnesses outside of the DOJ/FBI employee base, and no power to convene grand juries to seek indictments should crimes be uncovered. Durham, as a U.S. Attorney, does possess those powers.

This is not complicated, except for fake journalists who are set on pretending to be intentionally obtuse in efforts to deceive the American public. And that’s how we end up with these fake media outlets taking turns goose-stepping to marching music being played by the Coup Cabal.

Can’t wait to see what Monday’s theme becomes, and which fake news media outlet gets to parrot it for Brennan/Clapper/Comey and company. My money’s on ABC or The Washington Post.

Stay tuned.

That is all.

Tulsi Gabbard, the DC Swamp’s New Heretic

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

Burn the heretic! Burn the heretic! – So, what is really going on with this effort – detailed here yesterday – by the Democrat/media/RINO Axis of Propaganda to brand Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard as a “Russian agent”? No doubt, many readers can already guess, right?

This is the Axis of Propaganda, which has saddled our nation with a three-year neverending coup effort, already building the foundation for its excuse for losing the 2020 election, in which they know they have little chance of preventing President Donald Trump from winning re-election to a second term. That foundation for excusing the loss – by blaming it all on the Russians one more time – will then serve as the kicking off point and justification for another four years of neverending coup efforts.

Yes, it’s all incredibly tiresome and futile, but this is all these people have left at this point. If you wonder why they keep doing this kind of thing, you have to understand that to the denizens of the DC Swamp, this is a literal fight for survival. President Trump isn’t just upsetting the apple cart, every action he takes is a direct assault on their corrupt way of life.

In Syria, Trump is destroying their foundation for never-ending Middle East wars, from which many trillion of dollars of graft and no-bid contracts have flowed to all the influence peddlers and hangers-on.

By implementing policies that have helped the oil and gas industry make our country more energy secure, Trump has helped destroy any compelling reason why our country must remain entangled in all of the Middle East’s 2,000 year-old conflicts between various religions and sects.

By investigating the actions of Quid Pro Joe and his ne’er-do-well son Hunter, Trump is exposing the kind of influence game that thousands of DC Swamp denizens spend their lives aspiring to become a part of.

By working to end the last 30 years of trade deals that have allowed China and other nations across the globe to drain America’s wealth, Trump is upsetting the 30-year effort to end America’s status as the world’s lone true superpower.

By investigating the origins of the FBI/CIA/State Department spying efforts against the Trump Campaign, Trump threatens to expose the Obama-era corruption that not only turned most federal departments into mob-like enterprises, but leads all the way up to the Obama White House.

By mentioning Crowd Strike and the DNC server on his call with Ukraine President Zelensky, Trump signaled that he knows full well where and how the neverending coup germinated.

And by doing everything he can to secure the southern border with Mexico, Trump exposes the globalist attempt to turn our nation into a classic socialist two-tiered society, one with a ruling class consisting of a few million and an easily-manipulated and controlled permanent underclass consisting of several hundred million.

If you understand these motivations by the Axis of Propaganda, you realize that the assault on Gabbard, a Major in the Hawaii National Guard who has served two full tours in the Middle East, is simply a shot across the bow signaling that the Swamp hasn’t surrendered, and its leaders are gearing up for another four years of the same old bullsh*t.

Gabbard has made herself a target due to her refusal to support the Axis of Propaganda’s narrative that President Trump is somehow an illegitimate president. She regularly admits that Trump did win the 2016 election fair and square in her stump speeches, and likely set off this week’s round of attacks on her character when she said it again during the Tuesday night debate. This is the main reason why I frequently refer to her as the only truly interesting person in the Democrat field – she’s the only actual independent voice on that debate stage.

In the world of the neverending Middle East warmongers like the Pantsuit Princess, anyone who favors the Trump policy of getting the U.S. out off all of these Islam-driven conflicts automatically becomes someone to be demonized as a tool of Vladimir Putin. The Axis of Propaganda has been running a social media effort to demonize Gabbard throughout 2019, and her statement that Trump really won in 2016 during the debate appears to have been the catalyst for the Coughing Crook to make things more public on Wednesday evening.

On domestic policy, Gabbard is just another Democrat socialist dedicated to wasting trillions of dollars every year on programs that have no chance of actually working. But on foreign and military policy, she is a DC Swamp heretic, someone whose reputation and career must be destroyed before she gains enough political influence and power to become an existential threat to the utterly corrupt way of life all the Swamp skunks and snakes have built for themselves.

Gabbard was on Tucker Carlson’s show Thursday night giving her side of this story. It’s a pretty strong interview and worth taking the 5 minutes to watch:

There is literally zero chance that Gabbard could ever become the nominee of the Democrat Party in 2020 – the Swamp rats who control the party now would rather destroy the party before they let that happen. But she is, at least on some matters, that rarest of rare animals in Washington today: A Democrat who is actually willing to tell the truth about the DC Swamp and the real nature of Hillary Clinton:

Image may contain: 1 person, text

For that alone, she deserves our respect.

Hillary Clinton Goes After Tulsi Gabbard and Takes an Epic Beating

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

ummmm…maybe the Fainting Felon should turn her slanders on a more passive target. – This is the best thing you will see today, trust me.

The Democrat/media smear machine is really afraid of Tulsi Gabbard, the representative from Hawaii who remains the only actual interesting person in the party’s presidential nominating race. As Gabbard herself pointed out in Wednesday night’s debate, the smear machine has been up and running at her for the past week:

“Not only that, but, the New York Times and CNN have also smeared veterans like myself for calling for an end to this regime change war. Just two days ago, the New York Times put out an article saying that I’m a Russian asset and an Assad apologist and all these different smears. This morning, a CNN commentator said on national television that I’m an asset of Russia. Completely despicable.”

The big concern at the smear machine is that, because Gabbard does not toe the party line on each and every issue – especially those related to international relations and military policy – she might decide to mount a third party candidacy after the Party ensures its nomination goes to one of the Marxists in the race, most likely to be Fauxcahontas.

Media smears from the two fakest news organizations on the planet not being enough to scare Tulsi off, party leaders obviously fed a script to the Coughing Crook to use during an appearance on Thursday night. There, the Grasping Grifter had this to say about Rep. Gabbard:

“I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate,” Clinton said, speaking on a podcast with former Obama adviser David Plouffe. “She’s the favorite of the Russians.”

“They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far,” Clinton said.

Boy, did the Hacking Hag pick on the wrong target.

Obviously PO’d by Clinton’s idiotic and libelous remarks, Gabbard hit back Friday afternoon on Twitter, and boy, is it epic:

BAM! POW! OOF!

But wait, there’s more!

BOOM! KABLOOEY! YIKES!

But wait, there’s still more!!!

HOLY CRAP! SHOTS FIRED! OLD, COUGHING, HACKING, FAINTING, CORRUPT HAG DOWN!

Whew. That’s just brutal. And oh, so damn true.

Thank you, Rep. Gabbard, for being a Democrat willing to speak the truth about the single most corrupt political figure this nation has ever known.

Please, don’t stop now.

That is all.

As Trump Speaks to Massive Rally, Dallas Media Shamelessly Toadies for Beto

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

Why yes, yes we do. – As he toured the spanking-new, 1,000-job Louis Vuiton factory in the tiny town of Alvarado, Texas on Thursday afternoon, President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three glorious words) really, truly did have this exact exchange with a French reporter:

French reporter: “You have very low unemployment rate in the US and we have very high unemployment rate in France. How come? What the recipe for?”

Trump: “Well maybe we have a better President than you do.”

Somewhere, French President Emmanuel Macron, with his tiny 23% public approval rating, is sipping a glass of Bordeaux with steam coming out of his tiny French ears.

Irish Bob kept with his lifelong pattern of not really being much “competition.” – While the President was holding his massive rally in Dallas’s American Airlines Center (seating capacity 20,000, with thousands more watching on giant screens outside the arena), sad sack dilettante Irish Bob O’Rourke attempted to stage a “competing” rally in a small concert theater 15 miles away in the city of Grand Prairie.

Where several thousand Texans actually spent Wednesday night outside the AA Center in hopes of getting into the Trump Rally, here is a photo outside the O’Rourke venue taken just 3 hours before his event began:

Image

Meanwhile, here are photos of some of the tens of thousands gathered at the same time outside the American Airlines center:

Image may contain: one or more people, crowd and outdoor

Image may contain: one or more people, crowd and outdoor

The local Dallas TV stations all dutifully slanted their coverage of O’Rourke’s pitiful turnout, citing only the laughable claim by the Irish Bob campaign that attendance was an estimated “5,500.” But videos aired of the rally all showed the failed candidate standing on the venue’s stage, surrounded by maybe 200 people, with the rest of the theater kept carefully dark and camera angles kept carefully narrow so that they could not accidentally show all the empty seats:

I have now reviewed very local news coverage clip I can find out on the interwebnets, and not a single Dallas-area media outlet aired a single panning shot of the largely-empty theater. Instead, they all allowed the campaign to carefully place their cameras and restrict their movements in order to enable the dishonest coverage of the event.

This clip, from the local Dallas CBS affiliate aired shortly after 5:00, is even more pathetic. Fast forward to the :36 second mark, as the reporter tries to create the illusion of an enthusiastic “crowd” gathering outside the venue. What you’ll see is about 15 people waving signs the campaign had printed up. In fact, most of those 15 people are most likely O’Rourke campaign staffers:

In other words, the rally was an over-hyped, substance-devoid joke, just like the Furry candidate. Couldn’t happen to a more deserving guy. Honest media outlets would have covered the event and reported the facts surrounding it to their respective audiences. But the Dallas-Fort Worth area has no honest media outlets, so we get this sort of carefully-staged, coordinated in-kind contributions to the O’Rourke Campaign.

Because that is what our fake news media has become. It’s all just a show, folks.

That is all.

WATCH: Mick Mulvaney’s Epic Fake News Media Beat-Down

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

This is the best entertainment you will experience this week. – Acting Chief of Staff and just general jack of all trades for this Administration Mick Mulvaney staged one of the most epic beatdowns of our fake news media mavens of all time by anyone not named Trump today. He is almost as good as the President is at this, and actually does it while speaking in complete sentences and without the roar of helicopter or jumbo jet engines behind him. He is without doubt one of the most polished and witty extemporaneous speakers you will ever see. If management at Fox News had a lick of sense they’d offer Mulvaney about $20 million to fill that now-vacant 3:00 ET time slot.

I don’t have time to do a transcript here, but just watch it – it is hands-down the best show on television:

Pelosi, Schumer and Hoyer Stage Another DC Swamp-Kabuki Theater Act

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

Elijah Cummings died. – I have nothing nice to say about him, so I will say nothing at all.  Here’s a link to the AP article about his death, which of course is a thoroughly one-sided, glowing review of his life. Somehow the Republic and Baltimore will survive.

San Fran Nan is sick. – At least, according to President Donald Trump, who issued the tweet below after Pelosi blew up yet again in a White House meeting and staged a very theatrical walkout along with Chuck Schumer and Steny Hoyer:

Hey, didn’t we already know this is a very sick – as in mentally deranged – woman? Pretty sure most of us did, and Schumer and Hoyer should be – but won’t be – roundly condemned for helping her stage this latest bit of DC Swamp Kabuki theater.

As a partial, taunting payback for this latest staged event, the President followed later with this hilarious tweet:

Naturally, the Democrat activist press corps slanted its reporting in coordination with the Democrat narrative, featuring Schumer’s laughable contention that “the Speaker kept her cool.” But as you can clearly see in the clip below, Pelosi is visibly shaking, a fake smile pasted onto her face and having a very hard time keeping her constantly-loose dentures in her mouth while Schumer was ranting.

For their part, the Democrats couldn’t even keep their own story straight. Schumer claimed President Trump called Pelosi a “third-rate politician,” while Pelosi said Trump had in fact called her a “third-grade politician.” Seriously? That’s why you walk out of what was supposedly such a crucially important bipartisan briefing on the goings-on in Syria right now?

And hell’s bells, regardless of which insult the President may or may not have uttered, everyone on the face of the earth knows that Pelosi is a shameless political hack, and being one has made her a fabulously wealthy person. So, what’s the big deal? Own it, Nan – being a despicable political hack is what defines your entire life.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy spoke to the press gaggle later, after participating in the full meeting, saying that “”They left the meeting, other Democrats stayed and we had the most normal meeting you could ever have that was productive with the general of the joint chiefs, the secretary of defense and the president talking about how do we keep the homeland safe.”

Oh.

In case any of you might be inclined to take what the Democrats staged yesterday as a serious, spur-of-the-moment fit of pique, remember that this is not the first time they’ve created this exact scenario as a means of trying to fire up their lunatic Twitter Outrage Mob base. This is just another Alinsky-style event, a part of their ongoing coup d’etat effort designed to try to lower the President’s public approval ratings by portraying him as an unstable madman occupying the White House.

It is no coincidence that this piece of choreography came on the same day that the President’s approval rating in the Rasmussen survey once again reached 50%. It also came just a day after Pelosi had to cancel a planned formal impeachment vote of the full House because she simply doesn’t have the votes in favor of making that move, and if she forces it, she dooms her 35 or so Democrats who represent traditionally-GOP districts.

It also took place on a day during which news came that Adam Schiff’s Soviet-style basement interrogations of witnesses like Ukraine Envoy Kurt Volker are not yielding the results the Democrat coup plotters have hoped for:

[excerpt from interrogation]

Schiff persisted. “And when that suspension of aid became known to that country, to Ukraine, it would be all the more weighty to consider what the president had asked of them, wouldn’t it?”

“So again, congressman, I don’t believe — ” Volker began.

“It’s a pretty straightforward question,” Schiff said.

“But I don’t believe the Ukrainians were aware that the assistance was being held up — ”

“They became aware of it,” Schiff said.

“They became aware later, but I don’t believe they were aware at the time, so there was no leverage implied,” Volker said.

[end]

Oh.

So, as we have seen time and time and time again from these Democrats and their media hack toadies, when the facts on the ground don’t support the narrative they are pushing, they stage a media event to distract the public’s attention. It’s a despicable tactic, one that undermines the stability of our society, and the constant progression of this kind of false-flag display pushes us closer to outright civil conflict with every passing day.

All of which makes it perfectly reasonable for the President to speculate that Pelosi “just plain doesn’t like our great Country.” The proof of that slaps us in the face on a daily basis.

That is all.

Project Veritas Shows That CNN is Fake. In Other News, Water is Still Wet.

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

It’s all just another day’s work for our fake news media. – In my weekly Tuesday afternoon radio spot on News Talk 93.1 FM in Montgomery, Alabama, hilarious host Greg Budell brought up the new Project Veritas video expose’ of CNN. Those undercover videos, recorded by a whistleblower employee who was fired on Monday, reveal all sorts of news-faking machinations that take place at the fakest fakety-fake fake news outlet of them all.

A video released late Monday contains various clips of CNN President Jeff Zucker exposing an obvious personal grudge against President Donald Trump, bashing him repeatedly, and holding regular 9:00 a.m. meetings at which Zucker and staff strategize how to slant and fake the day’s news. Here’s the video:

When Greg asked me if I thought there would be any internal repercussions against Zucker or other high-profile CNN employees as a result of these videos, I answered “no, because these videos don’t really come as a surprise to anyone.”

Seriously, does it surprise you even a little bit that Jeff Zucker hates Donald Trump, and holds daily staff meetings to plot ways to slant CNN’s fake news coverage to the President’s detriment and in favor of various Democrats? Haven’t we really known that had to be happening all along? As I told Greg, it’s not just CNN doing this – the same thing is happening every morning at ABC, NBC, CBS, the Washington Post, the New York Times, and most other national outlets.

Oh, and those 9:00 strategy meetings likely take place right after they’ve all spent an hour on their daily 8:00 conference calls with key Democrats, during which they agree to the day’s talking points script that will be parroted on TV, in the newspapers and by their employees on Twitter and other social media. How else would Rush Limbaugh be able to come up with those 3-minute-long montages of 50 fake journalists and talking heads using the exact same talking points, verbatim, several times each week?

This is nothing new: This Democrat/media daily coordination has been taking place for at least 25 years, probably longer. Back in 2009, when the folks at Politico were still attempting to run a fairly honest news reporting effort, they even reported on the daily talking points operation of the day, which the fake journalists referred to as “journo-list”:

For the past two years, several hundred left-leaning bloggers, political reporters, magazine writers, policy wonks and academics have talked stories and compared notes in an off-the-record online meeting space called JournoList…

POLITICO contacted nearly three dozen current JList members for this story. The majority either declined to comment or didn’t respond to interview requests — and then returned to JList to post items on why they wouldn’t be talking to POLITICO about what goes on there.

Again, every outlet in our fake news media has these daily strategy sessions, and uses the exact same talking points and narratives that are used by Democrat strategists and politicians. This can only happen if there is a daily coordination effort. Whether the coordination effort takes place in an online forum, via conference call or some other technological mechanism doesn’t really matter: The coordination is manifestly transparent due to the way the “news” is rolled out to the public each day.

The only thing new this week is that, thanks to Project Veritas, we now have video proof of it taking place at CNN. Which we already knew was happening, anyway, right? Right.

Hell, far from getting fired for this, we should expect to soon see videos of Zucker bragging about it at various public events, like Quid Pro Joe bragged about bullying Ukraine’s government to fire that prosecutor. What Zucker and his CNN cohorts are doing is just standard operating procedure at America’s major fake news outlets these days.

The only person at CNN likely to face any real repercussions from the Project Veritas expose’ has already been fired. That is sad, but it’s also very probably true.

That is all.

With Request to Testify via Letter, Fake Whistleblower Achieves Peak Absurdity

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

Hey, remember when Bug-eyed Adam Schiff told us that this brave, heroic, fake whistleblower was going to testify live and in person before his committee, like two weeks ago now?  –  Yeah, that didn’t happen, did it? And it didn’t happen last week, either, and it is not going to end up happening this week, as the fake whistleblower – who is really just another Democrat leaker of classified information – sees his story falling apart.

Oh, and it probably isn’t going to happen in the future, either, at least not in the House of non-Representatives, where this particular bit of DC-Swamp Kabuki Theater is being choreographed for the masses. I kid you not, word came down late on Thursday that the leaker’s lawyers have now asked Bug-eyes and San Fran Nan if their client can testify via…wait for it…oh, you gotta wait for this one…via LETTER!

Yes, the Democrats and their fake news media toadies now propose to impeach a sitting President of the United States of America by letter. I swear I do not make this stuff up. Who could? Friends, Romans and countrymen, lend the fake whistleblower your eyes because you ain’t gonna need none of them damn ears with this particular clown.

Of course, the lawyers are now so keenly aware that their client leaker’s story has fallen so badly apart that they are using the classic Saul Alinsky tactic of claiming he is now receiving “death threats.” Note how this tiresome tactic has been used by every fake journalist and hack politician who has gotten on the bad side of Donald Trump for four and half years now, and each and every one of those people still somehow remains among the living.

It’s, like, totally different from getting on the bad side of the Clintons.

If these “threats” really do exist – they don’t – they are awfully damned idle ones. Think about these “death threats” in the context of this leaker: Nobody knows who he actually is. So, how are these nefarious people threatening him? It’s like threatening the Unknown Comic or Jack the Ripper, or that guy who really killed O.J.’s wife.

Indeed, in their very next pathologically-lying breath, the leaker’s lawyers say this:

The request reflects concerns about whether the whistleblower could testify to Democrats and Republicans without revealing his identity,…

Ok, well, that’s almost a valid concern, given that the very leaky Bug-eyes is the Chairman of the House Intelligence Clown Circus, which is leading this mind-numbingly-stupid farce. But then you realize that Schiff is supposedly on this guy’s side, so what’s the concern, really?

The obvious concern, really, is that this guy is getting cold feet about having to verbally testify under oath in a setting where he would have to field questions from Republicans – you know, the members of the committee who did not help him construct his false fairy tale in the first place. They might ask him tough questions during a live hearing, such as, why are you sitting there, bald-faced lying under oath before our clown circus committee, Mr. Leaker? You know, questions about the stark reality of this matter, in a setting that would require him to form actual words and maybe even complete sentences without the help of Schiff or his Lawfare lawyers.

This entire tiresome exercise veered off into the theater of the absurd on the day the despicable Pelosi announced her impeachment “inquiry”, which itself is not even a real thing. But, with this proposal to try to get the American people to buy into a process in which the House of non-Representatives would seek to impeach a President based on “testimony” from a witness who will not even identify himself to the public, the Democrat/media Propaganda Ministry has truly reached Peak Absurdity.

So, how do you impeach a President without a real witness? No worries there – the Democrats will just double-down on something even more tiresome and absurd. Because that is who they are, and this is what they do.

Continue voting for them at your own risk.

That is all.

Chuck Todd is Right: The Basic Rules of our Democracy are Under Attack

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

“I don’t say this lightly, but let’s be frank: A national nightmare is upon us. The basic rules of our democracy are under attack from the President.” – In making that soap-opera-style hyperbolic remark on MSNBC on Friday, Democrat toady Chuck Todd is half right: The basic rules of our democracy are indeed under attack, and have been since 1992, when Bill and Hillary Clinton became the Democrat Party’s co-nominees for the presidency.

One of the “basic rules of our democracies,” one of the beliefs upon which our nation was founded, was that elected officials would by and large be people of good faith, and people who sought public service did so in the spirit of serving the nation they love. The founders knew that there would always be scoundrels among the political class, but they structured the Constitution and thus our society on the foundational belief that, in the end, most members of congress, presidents and senior executive branch officials would place the best interests of the country over and above their own personal ambitions for power.

The Clintons changed all of that. The Clintons turned the White House into a confidence game, an influence racket in which the Lincoln Bedroom was rented out to the highest bidder. They leveraged agencies like the IRS and the FBI into tools to track and attack their political enemies. At the end of their eight years at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., they then parlayed their ongoing influence in Democrat Party politics into an even larger racket with the creation of their fake Foundation, leveraging it to its fullest capacity when Barack Obama paid them off by appointing the Pantsuit Princess as Secretary of State.

1992 was also the year when the Clintons began to transform the Democrat Party from a collection of politicians and staffers who sought to debate policy issues and win them on the merits to a collection of Saul Alinsky disciples who eschew any pretense at debate in favor of demonizing the opposition. Another basic rule that was foundational to our democracy was thus lost forever.

Another “basic rule of our democracy” used to be that the federal government was required to operate on a budget. But the Democrats have disposed of that one, too. In 2006, then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and San Fran Nan decided that the best way to continue bankrupting future generations of Americans and to keep federal spending rising was to refuse to engage in the process of passing actual budgetary authorization bills. Since that time, the federal government has operated on a neverending series of continuing resolutions (CRs). These CRs allow no real debate over spending. Instead, they simply take the previous year’s spending level and layer a predetermined percentage increase over the top of it.

In this way, the Democrats freed up all sorts of congressional time to allow their members to focus on what they love to do: Raise money and demonize the opposition.

Another “basic rule of our democracy” used to be that the Justice Department, FBI and other law enforcement agencies were to maintain an independence from the White House. Janet Reno destroyed all pretense to that principle on behalf of the Clintons, and it’s been downhill ever since. Barack Obama completed the utter and complete corruption of the FBI, which remains a raging dumpster fire of corruption and incompetence today with no relief in sight under the feckless Christopher Wray.

Democrats have also utterly corrupted the press. The founders considered what they called the fourth estate of our society so crucial that they enshrined freedom of the press in the very first amendment contained in the Bill of Rights. The role of the press as a “basic rule of our democracy” was to serve as the watchdog for the public interest, a tool of transparency that would speak truth to power and hold public officials of all parties accountable.

That’s all gone now. Toadies like Chuck Todd are nothing more than Democrat Party activists with $200 haircuts (Chuck obviously overpaid). Today’s national media establishment not only no longer speaks truth to power, it doesn’t speak truth to anyone, including itself. Every day is a new narrative, coordinated in advance with the Democrat Party, repeated ad nauseum by talking heads across all the broadcast networks and cable channels.

Opinion pieces that used to appear the Op/Ed sections of major newspapers have now migrated to the front pages under the guise of being “news” stories. Editors at the New York Times and Washington Post now openly brag about their publications’ efforts to brainwash the public with major themed propaganda campaigns. Journalistic standards once held sacrosanct, like having at least two or even three named sources for any news story, have been utterly abandoned as outlets rush to get thinly-sourced or fictitiously-sourced pieces up on their web pages to raise their click counts.

The very same Democrat Party and media establishment who spent three years obsessing over a “Steele Dossier” funded by the DNC and Clinton Campaign and compiled by foreign agents from the UK, Ukraine, Russia, Italy and Australia now screams that seeking information about corruption by a former vice president from any foreign country amounts to an impeachable offense.

Chuck Todd is one of the head cheerleaders in that effort to ignore and destroy the “basic rules of our democracy.” Those rules have been under attack for a long time, and whenever their efforts to destroy those rules fails, the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies simply double down on the destruction.

This second civil war that has been mounted over the last three years by the Democrats and the corrupt media is not a shooting war, but it is just as dangerous to our national survival. Sadly, the utter and complete corruption on the left is so consolidated and unshakable now that it is hard to imagine how we can possibly reach anything other than a disastrous conclusion.

Wednesday Was a No-Good, Terrible, Very Bad Day for the Deep State Dems

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

Wednesday may have been the worst day the Democrat Party has had during the Trump presidency. – Just as it appeared to some that the Deep State Dems might be gaining a little traction in their neverending coup d’etat, they suffered a series a series of self-inflicted wounds and bombs lobbed by the President into their midst that had them scrambling to pretend they’re actually going to work on real legislation by the end of the day.

That pretense is just that, of course, as the Democrat Party has totally sacrificed itself at the altar of its ultra-radical social media Outrage Mob and its pea-brained organ grinder monkey leader, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez.

There will be no serious effort to pass meaningful legislation for the rest of this year, as San Fran Nan’s gang of Munchkin committee chairmen focus their efforts solely on staging this fake impeachment “investigation” that is just another bit of DC Kabuki Theater, and a massive one at that.

Let’s just go through a few of the disasters the Democrats suffered throughout the day on Wednesday:

Pompeo decimates Democrat case for subpoenas. – At a press conference in Rome, Italy, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo reiterates his firm opposition to allowing any of State Department professionals to be forced to become a party to the Democrats’ carnival midway freak show, and lays out a detailed constitutional case for taking that stance. The Outrage Mob went into full outrage mode, because of course they did, but nobody real cared.

Pelosi and Schiff hold a disastrous press conference. – Tweedle-Dee and Tweedle-Dum followed shortly thereafter with possibly the most dishonest press event since Baghdad Bob went on TV to assure the world that all was well in Iraq, promising a fake impeachment process that would be “fair to the President,” and with Pelosi’s newly-restructured face trying and failing to summon tears about how she has a big case of the sads about it all. The unintentionally-hilarious presser ends with San Fran Nan begging in vain to convince one member of the Democrat toady press to ask her a question – any question at all would have done – about something other than impeachment.

Schiff revealed to have coordinated with the fake whistleblower before the complaint was even written. – The New York Times published a piece in which it claimed that Schiff had in fact begun coordinating with the fake whistleblower even before the fake whistleblower’s complaint had been drafted. Which means that this entire charade is being run on the exact same playbook the Democrat/media complex used to smear Brett Kavanaugh a year ago, given that that all began with Dianne Feinstein coordinating efforts with false witness Christine Blasey Ford months before Ford “came forward” with her false allegations. Schiff naturally denied the allegation in the Times’s report, but no matter: Schiff has been caught publicly in so many fabrications now that he has no credibility with any non-media American, and the likely truth of his mendacity has been planted in the public’s mind.

Trump owns them both in three different press events. – The President, meanwhile, held three separate press availabilties at the White House during the day, eviscerating the Democrats’ false case at every turn. Having been handed the New York Times piece about Schiff’s mendacity just before the third presser, he took it a step further, contending that Schiff actually helped write the complaint. While the corrupt media immediately went into full scoffing and tut-tutting mode over that statement, how many dozens of times have we seen the President make a statement like this and watch it turn out to be 100% true days, weeks, or months later?

Ukraine President Zelensky confirms he has never even met Rudy Giuliani. – This of course puts the lie to various media reports that have claimed that Giuliani had met face-to-face with Zelensky even before the July call with President Trump that supposedly germinated the fake whistleblower complaint.

Details of recent Barr/Durham visit to Italy become public. – While rumors and a few reports about this recent trip had begun to float around late last week, the details and their implications did not fully spill out into the mainstream and social media worlds until Wednesday.

State Department IG, after requesting “emergency hearing” with House Intel Committee staff, delivers folder full of four-month old newspaper clippings. – News of this event, possibly the greatest trolling event in federal government history, landed on Twitter early in the evening thanks to the reporting of the Daily Caller’s Amber Athey:

Brutal, indeed.

What Wednesday demonstrated more than anything else is that literally everything the Democrats do or say is a lie. Everything is just more theater to try to influence public opinion from a political party that has succeeded in purging itself of actual substance.

They will keep doubling down on the neverending coup d’etat not because it’s likely to be a successful strategy, but because they literally have no idea what else to do at this point.

If the Democrat Party were a brain, it would be that of a one-trick Donkey.
