Saturday News Roundup: The Media has Blood on its Hands, and America has had Enough

Domestic terrorists? What domestic terrorists? – We led Friday’s News Roundup with the FBI’s arrest of one Jason Charter, a BLM/Antifa organizer who led the effort that tried and failed to take down the Andrew Jackson statue in Washington, DC’s Lafayette Square last month. That seemed like an important story with all of the media-fed, Democrat-organized social unrest taking place in the country, right?

It turns out that, other than Fox News and OAN, not a single other TV “news” outlet spent a second of air time covering that story. That’s right: ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, and CNN are all so down with the terrorist cause in our country that they refuse to report on the arrests of these terrorists when they take place.

In the minds of the corrupt editors and reporters at those outlets, it is far more important to spend their time spreading more panic porn about the Wuhan virus than it is to inform the public that many of the people who burned and looted large swaths of a dozen major American cities during June are being brought to justice.

Because if a story is good for Trump, it’s bad, bad, bad for the corrupt news media.

Speaking of stories that are good for Trump and really bad for the media… – A new study from the International Journal of Infectious Diseases finds that Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), which the corrupt news media spent months demonizing and lying about after Trump endorsed its use, does indeed save the lives of people who have contracted COVID-19.

From a report at the Wall Street Journal:

Coronavirus patients treated with the drug hydroxychloroquine within the first two days of admission were more likely to survive than patients who received other treatment, according to the study, which was published online by the International Journal of Infectious Diseases.

The study, which analyzed medical records of 2,541 Covid-19 patients, suggests that hydroxychloroquine can be effective if given during the early stages of contracting the virus and at the right dose, the researchers said. Other studies, however, haven’t found a benefit, and federal health officials withdrew the drug’s authorization for emergency use.

Patients whose records were analyzed were given 400 mg of hydroxychloroquine twice on the first day, followed by 200 mg twice a day the following four days.

“We gave it early,” said Marcus Zervos, head of the infectious-diseases division for Henry Ford Health System in Detroit, who co-authored the study. “If it’s given late in therapy, it’s going to have relatively more limited benefits.”

[End]

In other words, this study verified exactly the studies out of France and South Korea, as well as anecdotal information from doctors around the U.S. who have had tremendous results with treating patients with HCQ early in the course of the virus. We knew all of this three full months ago, but the focused campaign by corrupt media outlets like CNN, NBC and the New York Time to demonize this drug intimated many doctors to avoid its use, no doubt resulting in many deaths that would have otherwise been avoided.

The simple fact of the matter is that the American news media has blood on its hands over this safe, effective and cheap drug. But then, our corrupt media has so much blood on its hands these days that this episode is just par for the course.

If we can’t find some way to effectively hold these corrupt editors and reporters accountable for their actions, our country will eventually die. They are a gigantic cancer that is rapidly metastasizing across our culture.

How to know President Trump gave a great and effective speech… – President Trump delivered a soaring and inspiring patriotic speech at Mount Rushmore last night. Here is how the news-fakers at the New York Times characterized it:

Let’s remember that the New York Times has rolled out the terms “dark” and “divisive” at Trump’s inauguration speech and every one of his State of the Union messages. After each and every one of those speeches, the President’s public approval ratings went up.

Dear NYTimes editorial board: Your elementary school word template is failing.

Speaking of failing… – A group of protesters managed to delay the timing of the Mt. Rushmore ceremony for awhile as they blocked the road up to the monument ahead of the President’s arrival.

From a story at Fox News:

About 15 protesters were arrested Friday after they blocked an access road to Mount Rushmore hours before President Trump was scheduled to give remarks to kick off Independence Day weekend.

According to the Associated Press, the protest group was mostly made up of Native Americans protesting that South Dakota’s Black Hills were taken from the Lakota people against treaty agreements.

[End]

Note: Anyone who watched the protest action live knows that the AP characterization of the makeup of the protest group is completely false. The group in fact was made up mainly of the same kind of pasty-white entitled Millennials who we see dominating every Antifa and BLM-organized riot. But hey, lying outright to the American public is what the AP and the rest of our corrupt news media does.

More from the story:

One group parked three vans across the road and removed the tires from two of the vehicles to make it more difficult to remove them. Several demonstrators climbed on top of the vans chanting “Land back!”

The sheriff’s office said attendees had been told to arrive early and should have been past the roadblock by the time the standoff began. However, the Rapid City Journal reported that some motorists who had tickets for Friday evening’s fireworks show were unable to get through the protests and were standing by their cars watching the standoff.

The Journal also reported that law enforcement in riot gear as well as members of the National Guard had declared an unlawful assembly.

Police later used pepper spray on several protesters to break up the standoff and tow trucks were brought in to remove the vans blocking the road. Arrests were made after protesters ignored a police-imposed deadline to leave.

[End]

About that police-imposed deadline: The live video feed showed that the police present on the scene sat by and did nothing as the Antifa/BLM group showed up and blocked the road. It also showed that it took almost two full hours before the police finally brought in tow trucks and started using pepper spray to clear the damn road, actions that could easily have been achieved far more quickly.

This is unacceptable.

People in this country have an absolute right to protest in public, and that right must be protected. But people do not have any right at all to block streets, disrupt, vandalize and loot businesses or tear down statues. Those acts will only end when police are freed up to take quick and decisive action to end them.

Enough. America has had enough.

Have a Happy Independence Day anyway!

The Corruption of the U.S. News Media Continues to Intensify

The Mid-Day Campaign Update

Every time you think the American news media could not possibly become more depraved and corrupt, they go and fool you again. – Let’s go around the horn – as all the baseball players used to day back when America still had baseball – and take a little review of some of the highlights of despicable, corrupt media behavior over the past couple of days…

Example #1: It’s the question that doesn’t get asked that reveals the corruption.

Guests on the various Sunday morning fake news shows included Georgia Gubernatorial loooooooser Stacey Abrams, Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar and fascist Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer. These are three of the harem of Democrat women being mentioned as potential running mates for Quid Pro China Spindly Finger Joe Biden.

Guess which current hot topic none of these potential veep candidates were asked by their respective Democrat agents posing as journalists? That’s right: The subject of Tara Reade’s increasingly credible sexual assault allegation targeting Crazy Uncle Joe and his spindly finger.

Proving yet again that the sin of omission is one of a corrupt journalist’s favorite tricks of the trade.

Example #2: San Fran Nan gets the same “question that isn’t asked” favor from utterly corrupt hypocrite Jake Tapper.

Watch as Nancy Pelosi gets the kid glove treatment from Tapper as she recites her false talking points:

Now, a real, actual journalist might have thought to ask the despicable Speaker a few follow-up questions:

– Ummm…didn’t you call President Trump a racist for implementing his travel ban back on January 31?

– Do you not realize that the “tens of thousands” of people you are talking about are American citizens?

– To be clear: Are you really stating that those thousands of American citizens should have been left imprisoned in China?

– To be clear: On February 24, 24 days after the President issued his travel ban, you were filmed walking around San Francisco’s Chinatown telling people that it was completely safe and there was nothing to worry about. Are you admitting you were wrong to do that?

But of course, nothing but crickets from the Democrat operative who gets paid by CNN to protect depraved Democrats like Pelosi.

Example #3: These people are soulless ghouls.

Watch as MSNBC’s hack Nicolle Wallace celebrates the Wuhan Virus because it hurts President Trump’s polling numbers:

Quote: “He’s down at 38%. Pence is lower than him. I mean, he needs those people whether he likes what they say or not. And I wonder what you think about whether or not there’s some silver lining there, that some of the things that we’ve been talking about for three years may be finally catching up with him.”

You could never make these people up. Not in a million gazillion years.

Example #4: These people are soulless ghouls, part II.

And speaking of hacks, here is NBC’s Chuck Todd celebrating the Wuhan Virus for giving us cleaner air and thus, “better views.”

I’ve pointed out several times now that one of the outcomes of our dealing with the Wuhan Virus as we have done has been to deliver the America envisioned by radical environmental alarmists in their “Green New Deal”: Decimated airlines, limited travel in cars, an utterly destroyed tourism industry, negative economic growth, millions of people out of work, cowering in their homes hoping for a government handout.

But hey, our carbon footprints are lower and we have better views, so isn’t life wonderful?

This is your corrupt national news media in action, folks. Never, ever forget who and what they really are. These people hate you, and would rather you were dead.

That is all.

ChiCom Influence Shows it is Time to Bust the Corrupt News Media Trusts

The Mid-Day Campaign Update

The left-wing activists who run NPR actually performed a rare public service on Tuesday, publishing an expose’ that reveals how Bloomberg News covers for the communist Chinese government in order to maintain its license to operate within that nation. The story demonstrates how Bloomberg’s longing to remain entangled with the inherently corrupt and dishonest ChiComs rendered its own operation equally as corrupt and dishonest.

The NPR piece relates that, in 2013, after publishing part 1 of a story detailing the enormous wealth being accumulated by the ChiCom Party elite – typical of what happens in all communist nations – Bloomberg’s China operation drafted part 2 of that story, “focusing on Chinese leaders’ ties to the country’s richest man, Wang Jianlin. Among those in the reporters’ sights: the family of new Chinese President Xi Jinping.” NPR relates that emails show that Bloomberg’s New York honchos expressed excitement upon an initial reading of the piece, but then suddenly quit communicating on the subject, and the story never ran.

The Bloomberg China office’s continuing inquiries about the matter eventually got them a conference call with the company’s famously-bombastic original editor-in-chief, Matthew Winkler, and NPR somehow obtained a recording made of that call. Boy, is it revealing.

From the NPR Article:

“It is for sure going to, you know, invite the Communist Party to, you know, completely shut us down and kick us out of the country,” Winkler said. “So, I just don’t see that as a story that is justified.”

He expressed great apprehension because of the potential consequences of publishing another investigation. In this case, it was one that would itemize the links between top Chinese Communist Party leaders and the country’s wealthiest man.

Winkler returned to those fears repeatedly. “The inference is going to be interpreted by the government there as we are judging them,” Winkler said. “And they will probably kick us out of the country. They’ll probably shut us down, is my guess.”

Winkler suggested reporters could find a uniquely “Bloomberg” way to cover the wealth of Chinese ruling elites. But he added a caution about covering the regime.

“It has to be done with a strategic framework and a tactical method that is … smart enough to allow us to continue and not run afoul of the Nazis who are in front of us and behind us everywhere,” Winkler said, according to the audio reviewed by NPR and verified by others. “And that’s who they are. And we should have no illusions about it.”

At the time, two Bloomberg editors told NPR the story didn’t run because it needed additional reporting. Winkler publicly said much the same. But these audio recordings reveal otherwise. They also show how much newsroom leaders were worried about losing lucrative business in China.

[End]

So, basically what we see here is a “news” organization quashing the real news in order to avoid offending corrupt national leaders the editor-in-chief refers to as “Nazis.” Yes, by all means, let’s not offend the Nazis. Let’s be sure to play nice with them and continue to give them access to our “news” platform so that our company and multi-billionaire owner who has enormous business interests in China can keep them intact.

Now, if you think Bloomberg is the only U.S. “news” media operation with enormous business ties to the ChiCom government, go Google “AT&T China.” When you do that, the second link that comes up provides you with a link to AT&T’s Global Business landing page for its operations in China. Here is an excerpt from the text on that landing page:

AT&T has been in China for more than 30 years. AT&T China has strong technical expertise with branch offices in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Tianjin and Shenzhen.

AT&T in China

Through collaborations with local service providers, AT&T is able to make available an advanced Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) IP-based network with MPLS Service Nodes in mainland China, covering more than 300 cities around the country.

With such teaming with local service providers, clients across China can benefit from an industry-leading portfolio that includes Mobility, Network, Network Security, Cloud, Hosting, Voice, Unified Communications and Application services. These are implemented locally by experienced personnel and supported by a local AT&T team.

AT&T should be the first port of call for any business or organization looking to mobilize its people, assets or information across China and beyond.

[End]

Oh. You don’t say.

Why is AT&T relevant to this conversation? Why, because AT&T is the corporate owner of … wait for it … oh, you have to wait for this one … you guessed it: CNN!

Now you know why you see CNN talking heads like Jim Acosta, Jake Tapper and Fredo Cuomo pushing ChiCom talking points verbatim out to their viewers every day.

Now, go Google “Comcast China,” and note that the second link that comes up is to a 2014 Forbes story titled, “Comcast To Build A $3.3 Billion Theme Park In Beijing.” $3.3 billion, huh? That’s a lot of money, even to Mike Bloomberg.

The next link that comes up is to Xfinity’s landing page for its multiple China-based business offerings. Guess which corporation owns Xfinity now? If you said ‘Comcast,’ you are catching on here. And now you know why the talking heads on NBC and MSNBC – also wholly-owned subsidiaries of Comcast – keep reciting ChiCom talking points to you 24 hours a day.

You want to know why CBS shills for China? Go Google “Viacom China.” Want to know why ABC does the same? Google “Disney China,” and you will find stories about billions upon billions of that company’s investments in China, all dependent on maintaining the good graces of the ChiCom government that is led by the very same Xi Jinping, who was to have been one of the prime subjects of that Part 2 Bloomberg story that never ran back in 2013.

Oh.

And now, as the late, great Paul Harvey used to say, you know the rrrrrrrrrrrest of the story.

The mainstream U.S. news media consists of garbage operations run by garbage human beings who are willing to literally sell their souls and professional ethics in order to protect the business interests of their corporate overlords. They truly are the Enemies of the People.

The only way to remedy this situation is for the Trump Department of Justice to use the nation’s anti-trust laws to outlaw the ownership of news media operations by corporations or individuals with foreign business interests. This current situation simply cannot be allowed to continue.

That is all.

Tonight’s Debate Drinking Game: Who Has and Has Not Been Bought off by Mini-Mike?

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

Quick: What’s the first thing you will be looking for at tonight’s Democrat debate? – Be honest: Won’t you be trying to see whether or not Mini-Mike Bloomberg will be standing on a box?

Thank you, President Trump, who hilariously issued this pair of tweets on Tuesday after it was announced that Bloomberg had miraculously “qualified” for the debate, thanks to a very convenient fake poll dummied up by NBC/Wall Street Journal:

“No standing on boxes!” I’m still laughing.

But seriously, if you want to understand how short Mini-Mike really is, all you have to do is look at this photo, if you can stand it:

Image may contain: 2 people, including Bob Hamilton, people smiling, suit and closeup

There he is in all his glory, standing with the Fainting Felon, who was listed as being 5’5″ when she was young – before gravity began taking its toll, as it does on everyone. These days, she is almost certainly no taller than 5’4″.

If you’re thinking, hey, she’s wearing heels, think again. The Coughing Crook can barely stand upright in flats – she probably hasn’t put on a pair of heels since she was First Lady. Of Arkansas.

Meanwhile, it has long been rumored that Mini-Mike wears loafers with lifts.

So, yeah, he will most likely be standing on a box tonight, or employing some other trick of stagecraft to make him look at least as tall as Amy Klobuchar. Look carefully. In fact, if you focus only on that and completely ignore all the utter crap that Mini-Mike and the other candidates will be spewing tonight, you might just survive the ordeal.

Image may contain: 1 person, standing, shorts and outdoor, possible text that says 'YOU MUST BE THIS TALL το RUN FOR PRESIDENT'

The real question for Bloomberg here is why he wants to be in this debate at all. While he did manage to “qualify”, it’s really hard to see any real advantage for him to be a part of this particular event.

First of all, he is seriously the most boring individual on the planet. It’s not as if he is going to say a bunch of stuff tonight that will set Democrat voters hair on fire with desire to go out and write-in his name at Saturday’s Nevada caucuses.

Second, the moderators of this event – even those who are already in Bloomberg’s deep pockets – will be absolutely obligated to ask him pointed questions about all the videos that have surfaced in the past 10 days of him making demeaning comments about a vast variety segments of American society, most of whom are traditional Democrat voter groups. The parade of these videos continued on Tuesday, with Bloomberg now adding the LGBTQ community to the list of offended Democrat constituencies:

Yikes. How’s Mini-Mike gonna answer a question about that one in a way that mollifies the rabid Democrat voter base?

Third, unless he has already bought all of his opponents off – which, admittedly, is entirely possible – he will become the target of their aggressions. All of this, and he isn’t even on the ballot in Nevada or the next contest in South Carolina.

Back to President Trump’s tweets: He hits the tiny nail on the head when he points out that Mini-Mike is “spreading money all over the place, only to have recipients of his cash payments, many former opponents, happily joining or supporting his campaign. Isn’t that called a payoff?”

Well, yes. Yes, it is a payoff, and yes, that’s exactly what Bloomberg is doing. It’s exactly what he has done throughout his entire professional life.

For example, tonight’s debate will be held on NBC. The moderators, according to The Intelligencer, will be:

NBC anchor Lestor Holt, Meet the Press host Chuck Todd, NBC News White House correspondent Hallie Jackson, Noticias Telemundo correspondent Vanessa Hauc, and the Nevada Independent editor Jon Ralston.

So, five moderators, and you can be sure that at least 2 of them have been paid off in some way, shape or form by Mini-Mike. Those who, like Holt and Todd, are based in New York City, have without doubt benefited from Bloomberg’s largesse, if only by being on the regular guest list for his various parties, galas and other major events, where they get to hobnob with Mini-Mike and all the beautiful people of New York society.

While Bloomberg’s generosity is famous, he is also famous for his vindictiveness. Do you think either man will want to give all that up by asking an overly-aggressive question of their benefactor, or by following up to demand that he actually answer the question directly when he tries to obfuscate? Please.

This is precisely why the intertwining over the last half-century of the big media establishment with the big political establishment has been so utterly destructive of our society. It is precisely why we no longer have anything resembling an independent press in our country, why the media is so utterly corrupt and fake.

So, Bloomberg and all he represents will be on stage tonight, and you will be able to easily identify which moderators and candidate have and have not already been bought off. Because that’s what Mini-Mike does.

That’s why, at the end of the day, tonight’s debate is likely to look an awful lot like this:

You seriously could never make these people up, folks. Not in a million years.

That is all.

Libel Suits Targeting Corrupt News Outlets Are Piling Up

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

One of the most pressing issues facing America today is finding some way to hold corrupt and out of control media outlets accountable for their intentional reporting of blatantly false information as part of their tireless efforts to support the agenda of the Democrat Party. Accomplishing this is very difficult given the state of U.S. law and the protections afforded the press under the first amendment.

As things stand today, seeking to punish these corrupt organizations via the libel laws is essentially the only route available to those they have abused, and it is a very tough road indeed. Regardless, some hardy souls and creative lawyers are making the effort.

On Friday evening, GOP congressman Devin Nunes announced he would soon be filing libel suits against both CNN and The Daily Beast, two of the most corrupt purveyors of fake news on the planet. The Daily Beast filed a report earlier this week alleging that Ukrainian operative Lev Parnas, who has been indicted in the U.S. on campaign finance technicalities,  claims that he helped Nunes set up meetings in which he obtained information about Ukraine during a European trip last November.

Nunes says the stories are blatantly and demonstrably false:

“These demonstrably false and scandalous stories published by the Daily Beast and CNN are the perfect example of defamation and reckless disregard for the truth,” Nunes told Breitbart News late Friday night. “Some political operative offered these fake stories to at least five different media outlets before finding someone irresponsible enough to publish them. I look forward to prosecuting these cases, including the media outlets, as well as the sources of their fake stories, to the fullest extent of the law. I intend to hold the Daily Beast and CNN accountable for their actions. They will find themselves in court soon after Thanksgiving.”

Because he has spent the past three years as a leader in the effort to expose the deep state coup cabal within the DOJ and FBI and also led the defense of President Trump during the past two weeks’ impeachment circus, Nunes has been the target of all manner of false reporting by these and other corrupt media organizations. It would be a great blessing for the nation if he could prove his case and win monstrous judgments against both CNN and The Daily Beast.

On Thursday, Covington Catholic High School student Nicolas Sandmann won a crucial judgment in his $275 million libel case against NBC Universal. The judge in that case, U.S. District Judge William Bertelsman, ruled that if NBC’s allegations that Sandmann “blocked” well-known leftist activist Nathan Phillips or “did not allow him to retreat” during their confrontation on the National Mall last year are false, then they are libelous.

As reported by Fox Business on Friday:

Video widely shared online showed Sandmann and Phillips standing close to each other, with Sandmann staring and at times smiling at Phillips as the man continued to beat on a drum. Both Phillips and Sandmann have said they were trying to defuse tensions rising among three groups on a day when Washington hosted both the anti-abortion March for Life, attended by Sandmann and his Covington Catholic High School classmates, and the Indigenous Peoples March.

You will remember that every corrupt fake news organization in America participated in a feeding frenzy following that confrontation in an effort to portray Sandmann and his classmates as a pack of rabid, privileged white kids who bullied a poor “native American” who was just minding his own business when they supposedly descended upon him. We quickly learned – and the video of the incident proved beyond all doubt – that it was in fact the kids who were minding their own business waiting for a bus to arrive to pick them up when Phillips, a notorious leftist agitator with a long history of aggressive behavior, descended on them.

Notably, Judge Bertelsman is also the presiding judge in Sandmann’s similar cases against CNN and the Washington Post, and has also ruled in Sandmann’s favor on these issues in those cases. With any luck, Sandmann will ultmately prevail in all three cases.

Who knows, given that CNN is already a money-losing proposition, maybe a couple of judgments totaling half a billion dollars or so would give its owners at AT&T cause to consider whether their ongoing support for CNN’s Goebbels-like fake news operation is worth bearing the cost and reputational damage.

We can always hope. For America to survive in its current form, we must find some means of enforcing accountability in our intentionally-fake news media establishment. If the libel laws can’t be made to work, some other, probably uglier, alternatives will have to be found.

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.

Fox News Leads the Parade of Garbage Impeachment Polls

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

These impeachment polls are very mysterious and confusing. Until you look at the details, that is.  –  The increasingly-trending-left Fox News came out with a “bombshell” new poll on impeachment Wednesday which Bret Baier solemnly told us shows that 51% of those polled favor both impeachment and removal from office. Baier further said that is an increase of 9% over an earlier poll taken before any of this nonsense about Ukraine broke. Which basically means that every leftist nitwit in the country has always wanted him impeached and removed, which should surprise no one.

This seems pretty strange since the President’s public approval rating in this poll and basically every other poll is essentially the same as it was in August. So, I decided to go take a look into the bowels of the results and guess what I discovered? Fully 48% of this poll’s sample identify as Democrats. This despite the fact that recent polling by Gallup and other organizations show that less than 30% of the U.S. population now self-identifies that way. 40% were Republicans, despite recent polling by Gallup and others showing that less than 30 of the actual population self-identifies that way. That leaves just 12% of this sample taken from the vast middle of the country that identifies with neither party.

This poll is trash. Garbage. A fake poll taken simply to create a fake news story for Bret Baier to parrot. Fox News is almost all the way achieving its goal of becoming CNN.

Ok, so, let’s go on to the poll from The Wall Street Journal/NBC released on Tuesday. This poll claims to find that 43% of the public favor “supporting [Trump’s] removal based on what they know today,” according to the linked NBC article. Yet, when you go take a look at the details of the findings, here is what you actually discover: When asked whether there is “enough evidence to impeach Donald Trump and remove him from office now,” just 24% in the poll’s sample say “yes.”

TWENTY-FOUR PERCENT.

Another 31% are in favor of holding “an impeachment inquiry to determine of there is enough evidence” to remove the President from office, because Americans just love their investigations. Fine.

But look at how absurdly NBC has misrepresented this poll’s actual findings to the public, simply to create a “news” story that might attract viewers and clicks to its website. It’s a disgrace.

One big difference in this poll as compared to the Fox poll is that it has a more reasonable partisan breakdown of 30% Democrat and 25% Republican, with the rest of the sample basically independents.

These are just two of the most recent of dozens of polls taken on the impeachment and removal questions, and when you look closely at the entire group of them, what you find is that this Democrat/Media coordinated anti-Trump frenzy over the innocuous Ukraine phone call has moved public opinion towards removal from office by maybe 2 or 3 percentage points.

Meanwhile, the President’s public approval rating as measured by the RealClearPolitics average of polls sits at 43.6% approval, slightly above his average for all of 2019.

This is not remotely what the Democrats and their media toadies were hoping to achieve here. Not at all.

They’re gonna need a bigger hoax.

Lawrence O’Donnell is What Happens When all Standards of Journalism are Gone

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

Last week, after President Donald Trump had said that, because his three predecessors in the job failed to deal with China’s unfair trade practices, and therefore he was the “chosen one” to do so, the Democrat-toadying news media went berserk. “Trump thinks he’s the Chosen one!” they wailed, “Trump compares himself to a messiah!” the headlines roared. On and on and on it went, even though the President was very clearly using the term “chosen one” in a highly ironic and humorous manner.

But of course, when it comes to covering the President, our fake news media toadies have no sense of humor or irony. President Trump is, to these Democrat-activists-with-press-passes, the devil incarnate after all, and thus every word must be taken literally.

Then there’s Joe Biden, the Unfrozen Caveman Senator who seldom knows what town or state he happens to be in, and can’t remember the name of that guy he served with as Vice President. Biden this week related a story of military heroism he claimed to have witnessed while serving as Veep, a story in which he supposedly placed himself in harm’s way to visit a wounded warrior in a military hospital in Iraq – or was it Afghanistan? Hey, it’s just details.

The story ends with Biden heroically traveling to that hospital despite being warned of the dangers involved, and the heroic soldier refusing the medal he was offered because the fellow heroic soldier he had attempted to save had ended up dying. It’s a great story in which the only accurate part was the part about the heroic soldier.

Every other aspect of the story Biden related was completely false, as even the Washington Post managed to bring itself to admit. Simply not true, as in did not happen.

Yet our Democrat-toadying fake news media has gone to heroic lengths itself to excuse Biden’s latest despicable fabrication as just another gaffe. Why, that’s just ol’ Joe Biden, he does this stuff all the time. It’s part of who he is, and it shouldn’t be held against him.

Ok, fine. Having a sense of humor and irony is also part of who President Donald Trump is. Why, you might ask, is that invariably held against him by our fake national press corps?

The answer is simple: our fake national press corps has mounted a focused campaign of dehumanization against Donald Trump the candidate and Donald Trump the President for four solid years now. In this campaign, Trump is a monster, a non-human who the fake journalists must not ever make the mistake of characterizing in human terms.

This dehumanization campaign is also why we saw NBC and its despicable host Lawrence O’Donnell clearly intentionally slander President Trump and Trump Enterprises by claiming some loans taken out by the company had been co-signed by Russian oligarchs close to Vladimir Putin. After the Trump lawyers sent a letter promising a major lawsuit were the false report not retracted within 24 hours, O’Donnell was forced to issue a grudging semi-apology in which he hilariously claimed to have not adhered to NBC’s “rigorous” standards.  Please.

The strategy here was clear: Slander the non-human President with an outrageous, unsourced lie, and then wait a day to issue a half-hearted apology knowing that 5 times as many Americans would hear and believe the initial claim than would ever even hear about its semi-retraction. This is what happens when all former journalistic ‘standards’ have completely disappeared.

Our nation’s media establishment as it exists today is now nothing more than a political party. Wait, that’s not quite accurate: It is in fact nothing more than the propaganda arm of the national Democrat Party. The corporate media have long been heavily biased in the Democrats’ favor, but always in the past, there were still enough editors and anchors within those organizations who possessed the journalistic integrity to prevent their operations from going completely off the rails into outright slanderous/libelous behavior.

Those people are all gone now. Even at Fox News, Shep Smith is allowed to engage in the most outrageously false monologues imaginable during what is supposed to be a straight news hour each day.

Today’s news media is a daily race against the competition to see who can do the best, most outrageous job of dehumanizing and damaging a duly-elected POTUS while covering for all the bad actors who are destroying our society’s institutions. These are not news operations – they are slander factories with no standards, no editorial control, no integrity.

They are abominations to a free society, enemies of the people, plain and simple.

That is all.

All that Post-Election Panic in 2016 Begins to Make Sense

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

[Editor’s Note: The Campaign Update will be silent from July 11 through July 23 because Dave needs some down time.]

Is it all starting to make sense to you now? – Are you starting to understand why the election of Donald J. Trump – a non-swamp creature with no ties to the Deep State – put the Democrats and establishment Republicans into such a state of outright panic?

In the wake of the arrest and charging of pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, does the focused campaign over the last three years by our fake news media and entertainment industry to normalize pedophilia in the public consciousness begin to make sense? As you discover all of Epstein’s relationships to not just the Clintons, but also to all manner of famous Democrats and media and entertainment figures, do you now understand why Hillary, after she was asked a few “tough” questions by disgraced sex abuser Matt Lauer during the 2016 campaign, scolded him that “we will all hang” if Trump were to win the election?  Which, incidentally, he did?

Are you now starting to understand why Slick Willie issued that classic Clintonian butt-covering statement to the press last night? Because everyone needs to understand that an ex-President would not have issued such a statement unless he knows some truly serious, damaging information is now in the hands of investigators.

Think about it: He already has 90% of the news media feverishly scrambling to cover for him. WikiPedia has already altered its page on Jeffrey Epstein to eliminate all mention of the Clintons. So there was no reason to issue that statement solely based on the information that is already public. The Clintons know that Slick’s name is all over the flight logs of the Lolita Express, and they know what Bill – and Hillary – did with Epstein over the years.

Now, they also know all of that information is in the hands of federal prosecutors, and they no longer have Eric Holder or Loretta Lynch or Robert Mueller or James Comey in power to cover for them. That’s why you saw Slick issue that statement last night. It’s the setting of a favorable narrative that is now being parroted all across our fake news media landscape, providing cover in preparation for the storm they know is coming.

This is no different than when, in 1998, Slick, then POTUS, wagged his crooked index finger at the cameras and said “I did not have sex with that woman, Miss Lewinsky.” It’s the setting of a damage control narrative. It’s what the Clintons do, and what they have always done.

And here’s the thing: It’s always worked for them before, but before, they’ve always had fellow swamp creatures in positions of high power to help cover for them.

How absurd is the claim of “I know nothing! Nothing!” by Sgt. Schulz, er, ex-President Clinton?  So ridiculous that reporter Conchita Sarnoff, who has spent the last decade investigating the case, outright called him a liar on national television Monday night. Watch:

Ouch.

The Campaign Update, as noted above, will be silent for the next couple of weeks as I go to recharge my batteries and get a little R&R. Some readers are scolding me that now is a bad time to be doing that because so much is going on. But think about the last few years and tell me when we had two weeks during which there was not a bunch of really important stuff going on.

The fact is, there are no longer any good times to do this, which is why I’m doing it now. See you in a couple of weeks!

Michael Bennet: The Next Media-fed Democrat “Rising Star”?

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

[Editor’s Note: The Campaign Update will be silent from July 11 through July 23 because Dave needs some down time.]

Some interesting tidbits in the news this morning. Consider this:

“Americans demand climate action (as long as it doesn’t cost much),” writes Reuters analyst Valerie Volcovici. “Nearly 70% of Americans, including a majority of Republicans, want the United States to take ‘aggressive’ action to combat climate change — but only a third would support an extra tax of $100 a year to help, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll.”

What do those results tell us? It tells us the vast majority of Americans understand in their hearts that the whole “Climate Change” alarmist industry is a giant scam, which is why they aren’t willing to spend any real money on it. But even many who recognize this will tell a pollster that they are for “aggressive” action to fight the scam because they feel pressured to signal the virtue of loving the “environment.”

Thus, the focused brainwashing campaign engaged in by our fake news media on this subject over the last 20 years or so has been amazingly ineffective, considering the billions of dollars they’ve invested in it. Perhaps that’s explained in part by the rising diversity of viewing options on TV, expansion of the Internet and the death of Democrat propaganda-driven newspapers.

Even the Sunday morning “news” shows are dying. The Washington Times this morning reports that the average audience for programs like “Meet the Press” and “Face the Nation” fell by 8% in 2018 and now attract an average audience of just 2.3 million viewers. The weekday evening newscasts, meanwhile, attract an average audience of just 5.3 million sets of eyes, a fraction of the number who tuned in 30-40 years ago. If nobody’s watching, the brainwashing doesn’t take.

This death of ratings for the broadcast TV networks exacerbates the problems for the Democrat Party in its ongoing efforts to dumb down and brainwash the American public, since any brainwashing campaign requires attention from the subjects. At the same time we see these “news” shows on ABC, NBC and CBS passing away, we are also seeing the ongoing collapse of ratings at CNN and MSNBC, a collapse that has only accelerated since the issuance of the Mueller report exonerating President Trump.

A new Democrat “rising star” on the horizon? Remember the name “Michael Bennet,” because I suspect he’s about to become the next media darling “rising star” in the Democrat race. The senator from Colorado was on Fox News Sunday yesterday, another of the low-rated Sunday shows whose audience is collapsing as host Chris Wallace tilts further and further to the political left.

Watching the interview, I was struck by what an accomplished and convincing liar Bennet is. He brought back memories of Bob Kerrey’s famous quote that “Bill Clinton is an unusually good liar.” Bennet has that same ability to tell bald-faced lies and convince you he really believes his own BS, a trait also possessed by Pete Buttigieg. Remember, I told you way back in March that Mayor Pete was probably going to have his own “rising star” moment after a similar interview on Fox News Sunday.

But Mayor Pete’s star is now fading after his lost weekend back in South Bend a couple of weeks back, so the Democrat toadies in the fake news media will be looking for a new date. The pickings are getting pretty slim at this point, so they will be looking around for someone who does well on TV, someone who is articulate, and someone who toes the leftist, SJW party line that attracts clicks and retweets.

The other guy to watch right now is Julian Castro, who, in addition to being a very convincing liar (though not quite as convincing as Bennet) also happens to be an actual minority, so he checks off the identity politics box that is so appealing to shallow Democrats. But the media has been trying to give Castro a boost for weeks now with gobs of free air time, and it just hasn’t been taking for whatever reason.

The other reason to think Bennet may be about to have a little boomlet is fundraising. In the second quarter, Bennet led all of the second tier candidates, raising $2.8 million from April through June. Castro bragged about a surge in his own fundraising following the debate, but has refused to release actual 2nd quarter numbers thus far, which obviously means he isn’t too proud of them.

So, expect to see Michael Bennet a lot more on your TV screens in the coming few weeks. After all, these fawning fake reporters have to have some Democrat to make goo-goo eyes at and whisper sweet nothings to, and Mayor Pete just isn’t getting it done for them anymore.

That is all.

Dems/NBC Structure Debate Lineups to Promote the Party’s New Dream Ticket

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

Well, the Democrat debate lineups are set for next week, and aren’t we all thrilled? Ok, no. But I’ll tell you who is thrilled to death, and that is Fauxcahontas, the fake Indian senator from Massachusetts who got her a seat at the kiddie table. This is how we know that she has now replaced Kamala Harris as the favored child of the Obama minions who are running the DNC into bankruptcy. We’ll explain, but first, take a look at how the “random drawing” for next week’s two debate nights turned out:

Image result for Democratic debate lineups

Image result for Democratic debate lineups

Anything look a little odd to you there? Well, it will if you understand how the Democrats and the fake news media – in this case, NBC and its affiliate channels – work together to structure their narratives and influence how this campaign is going to go.

The first thing to understand here is that the Democrat Party does nothing at random. Nothing is left to chance – everything is scripted, every word they utter, every public action they take is based on supporting the narrative, which in turn is based on polling and focus groups. So, ignore the myth that these lineups were determined by drawing names out of a hat. That’s utter nonsense.

Now that you understand that, take another look at the lineups and notice the most striking aspect of them: There is Princess Little Big Giveaway all by herself at the end of that first line, preceded by an amazing array of lightweights in the race. None of those other nine candidates is polling more than 2-3% support currently, and most of them come in at a flat zero in all but a handful of national polls. Who do you think that’s intended to benefit?

It’s been hilarious reading some of the “news” reports since the lineups were released, most of them claiming that Lieawatha somehow came out on the short end of the stick, based on the bad reasoning that golly, nobody will be watching that first debate because Biden and the Commie aren’t in it. This betrays a complete lack of understanding about what actually matters here, which is not how many people tune into the debate, but what the media narrative of it will be the next day.

The narrative for Night 1 is set up to be “Man, did Elizabeth Warren dominate that debate stage, or what?” It’s as predictable as Joe Biden groping a child at a public event. You know who really got screwed by that draw? Tulsi Gabbard, who needs people to be watching in order to notice that she’s the only person on that stage who will be saying what she actually thinks, rather than reciting talking points written for her by other people, as all the others will be doing. Trust me, that’s not an accident, either, given that the Obama people who run the DNC detest Rep. Gabbard.

Thus, Night 2 will be crammed with the rest of the “heavyweights” in the race, if you can call them that. Sleepy Creepy Joe, the Commie, Kamala Harris and Mayor Pete will all be forced to compete with each other for opportunities to stand out, along with six rank also-rans like Kirsten Gillibrand and Marianne Williamson. The almost inevitable result of this lineup will be the formation of a circular firing squad with the guns trained mainly at Uncle Joe.

Guess who is most likely to come out of that mess looking best? If you said Mayor Pete, you’d be right. Because Buttigieg has already proven he’s much smarter than the rest of these hacks, and is the most likely one to be sure to stay completely out of the slugfest.

So, the lineup coming out of Night 2 sets up a narrative that will be something like “Buttigieg remains above the fray as a brawl breaks out on the debate stage.” Just millions more dollars worth of free media for the party’s “rising star.” No mystery here.

The people who run the DNC understand that Biden’s a dinosaur who is completely out of touch with the party’s radicalized voter base, and that the Commie is, well, a Commie who would lead the party to unrecoverable electoral disaster. So these lineups have obviously been structured to promote what is quickly emerging as the party’s “dream ticket” – a marriage between a fake Indian and an Obama disciple who has never before run for any office above mayor of a mid-size town in Indiana.

As much as they try to hide what they’re doing, the Democrats are really extremely transparent when you understand how they coordinate their efforts with our fake news media.

That is all.

The Week in Review: The Trump Tide Begins to Turn

The Campaign Update Week in Review
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

[The week just past as chronicled on the @GDBlackmon Twitter feed.]

The week began with sellout actor Robert DeNiro threatening Trump supporters that he’d never forget what we’ve done the last few years, whatever that means. Yeah, well, we’re never gonna forget he got paid $20 million for making “Dirty Grandpa” and “The Intern.”:

But things only got better from there. Here is a worker who does, I kid you not, the BEST. TRUMP. IMPRESSION. EVER!:

Slick Willie and the Pantsuit Princess got heckled in their fake “home state” of New York, and all was right with the world.:

Jabba The Nadler jumped in to defend The Enemy Within, Ilhan Omar, in her latest anti-America remarks controversy.:

Cher previews the lyrics to her upcoming new hit sing, “MY CITY CAN’T TAKE CARE OF ITS OWN!!!!”:

…and the next morning’s Campaign Update was all about that Cher tweet, which was the most awesomest tweet in the history of awesomely hypocritical tweets.:

Why “global warming” isn’t really a thing anymore…:

It was mid-day Monday, and Notre Dame was burning.:

Meanwhile, “Morning Joe” was off his meds again. Or maybe he was on them, it’s hard to tell.:

Irish Bob O’Rourke was running low on meaningless sophistries to recite to his mind-numbed followers, so he decided to poll them about what they want to hear, so they could give him a bunch more things to regurgitate back to them on the campaign trail. He is seriously running the most vacuous campaign in Democrat history, and that is the party that gave us two previous campaigns from Joe Biden.:

AOC is actually correct about this, but the truth about Creepy Joe Biden won’t sit well with San Fran Nan.:

San Fran Nan was trying to get AOC and The Enemy Within under some control, and her efforts did seem to have some dampening effect on their behavior as the week wore on. It won’t last for long, though.:

Well, that sure doesn’t fit the narrative. Not at all.:

Because he plans to “pay” for it by ordering the Treasury to print trillions of new dollars every year, devaluing the currency in the process. Same way he plans to pay for free college and all his other mindless socialist ideas. It’s the Venezuela model.:

Eric “Because the Government has nukes” Swalwell entered the presidential race, solely to play the role of the Democrat Party’s stalking horse on gun control.:

Andy McCarthy had a great piece on the Obama Cabal’s spying operation on the Trump Campaign.:

Yikes. Running Roy Moore for that senate seat again would be like Texas Democrats running Wendy Davis as their gubernatorial candidate again.:

Here’s my Campaign Update on San Fran Nan’s efforts to control her radical Kiddie Caucus by putting them in semi-time out.:

Tea Biscuits everywhere stand highly insulted by this tweet from the inimitable James Woods.:

Irish Bob O’Rourke was too busy riding a skateboard in his sheep suit.:

The slow turning of Fox News continues…:

Our fake news media barely noticed, but realeasing the Mueller Report wasn’t the only important action taken by Attorney General William Barr this week.:

CNN’s real competition isn’t Fox News or MSNBC, it’s TLC and The Food Network.:

Gosh, I wonder what tipped him off?:

Best, most prescient meme of the week here.:

Brit Hume tipped me off to one of the best things I’ve read all year. You should read it, too.:

I’m old enough to remember when journalists were trained to bitch and moan whenever public officials refused to hold press conferences. Now, they bitch and moan when the Attorney General holds one. It’s all so despicable.:

All carbon tax proposals are nothing more than money-grabbing scams.  Every one of them. Remember this key fact of political life – it will serve you well in the future.:

Tim Young is the hammer, liberals are his nails.:

I’m always happy to be of service to others.:

And just like that, here we go.:

President Trump offers the most concise summary of the 400-page Mueller Witch Hunt Report.:

….aaaaannnnnndddd the celebration at the White House begins.:

The media reaction to Barr’s release of the Mueller Report was highly-predictable, and oh, so entertaining.:

….they were still melting down the next day, to no one’s surprise.:

Their behavior was so abhorrent that they’d even lost Geraldo Rivera, for crying out loud.:

Chris Cuomo looked like a deer in the headlights.  Ok, he always looks like a deer in the headlights, but still…:

Meet the new #NeverTrump talking points, same as the old #NeverTrump talking points. So tiresome.:

Fauxcahontas was on the warpath, sending out smoke signals demaning scalps!:

….aaaannnnnddd reliable old NBC News led the charge with the new officially-approved joint Media/Democrat talking points, as the goal posts shifted yet again.:

And finally, Mitt Romney saw what he thought was a chance to advance his own presidential ambitions by jumping in with the Democrat/Media propaganda complex, because of course he did.:

What an amazing week it was, huh?

Happy Easter to you all!

That is all.

Eric Swalwell Seeks to Put the “POS” in POTUS

The Afternoon Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Some mid-day short takes on the passing scene…

If Eric Swalwell gets elected to the presidency in 2020, he will be living proof that you can’t spell POTUS without the “POS.” – First, he threatened to nuke gun owners on his Twitter feed. Next, he proposed a plan to use Australia and New Zealand as his role model countries for his plans to confiscate your guns.

Now, the farcical college frat party planner from California tells the execrable CNN host Jake Tapper that he would send gun owners to prison should they refuse to comply with his Stalinist gun grab. If your fondest wish is to bring a violent civil war to this country, vote Swalwell in 2020! He’s your man.

By the way, everyone is aware that Swalwell is not in this race because he thinks he has the slightest chance of winning it, right? He is obviously a token, put up to it by Party leaders as a stalking horse to try to gin the public up on the gun control issue. He’s going to be the guy out there promoting all of these radical “solutions” to gun violence so that the other, more viable candidates don’t have to do it themselves.

This way, the Democrat Party and its media co-conspirators keep the gun grabbing issue constantly in the news cycle throughout the nominating process, helping to normalize it in the public consciousness while at the same time allowing the actual leaders in the race to avoid it almost entirely. The hope is to create enough media attention on the subject to allow the eventual Democrat nominee to latch onto the issue on the pretense that Swalwell’s advocacy created some sort of popular groundswell.

If you think the Democrats would never stoop to such an underhanded, dishonest strategy, well, what planet have you been living on for the last 25 years?

Guess who wrote this stuff. – Here are some outtakes from a wonderful opinion piece out there on the interwebnets today. See if you can guess the identity profile of the person who wrote them:

We are so well off here in the United States that our poverty line begins 31 times above the global average. Thirty. One. Times. Virtually no one in the United States is considered poor by global standards. Yet, in a time where we can order a product off Amazon with one click and have it at our doorstep the next day, we are unappreciative, unsatisfied, and ungrateful…

Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently said to Newsweek talking about the millennial generation, “An entire generation, which is now becoming one of the largest electorates in America, came of age and never saw American prosperity.”…

Never saw American prosperity. Let that sink in. When I first read that statement, I thought to myself, that was quite literally the most entitled and factually illiterate thing I’ve ever heard … Now, I’m not attributing Miss Ocasio-Cortez’s words to outright dishonesty. I do think she whole-heartedly believes the words she said to be true…

Let me lay down some universal truths really quick. The United States of America has lifted more people out of abject poverty, spread more freedom and democracy, and has created more innovation in technology and medicine than any other nation in human history. Not only that but our citizenry continually breaks world records with charitable donations, the rags to riches story is not only possible in America but not uncommon, we have the strongest purchasing power on earth, and we encompass 25% of the world’s GDP. The list goes on. However, these universal truths don’t matter.

So, what identity profile would you guess most likely fits this writer? My bet is that most readers would guess those words come from an older, white male baby-boomer. Right?

Wrong. those passages and many more wonderfully thoughtful, appreciative and incisive words were written by a young, Millennial-aged woman who wrote them while sitting in a busy “hipster” coffee shop in Nokomis, Florida. Her name is Alyssa Ahlgren, and you all should follow this link to read her entire piece. It’s the best and most encouraging thing you will read today.  Promise.

I swear this is not satire.:

You seriously just cannot make this stuff up.

In case you missed it, we have one more data point that indicates we finally, at long last, have a real Attorney General atop the nation’s Department of Justice now:  A ruling by Attorney General William Barr on Tuesday means certain migrants seeking asylum will not be released on bond but instead will stay in detention.

The NBC report linked above says that the ACLU is already working up a lawsuit to appeal the ruling – they’ll no doubt file it in a district court within the jurisdiction of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals – but no matter: This ruling is well within Barr’s authority under the law, and any adverse ruling coming out of the 9th Circuit will be reversed by the Supreme Court.

This ruling will have a significant dampening effect on the flood of illegal immigrants coming up through Mexico from Central America to make false claims of asylum, because it closes one of the biggest loopholes in the asylum process. Absent the incentive of knowing they will be released into U.S. society after a brief stay in a border detention facility, those seeking to defraud the U.S. asylum system will be far less willing to make the dangerous 1,000 mile trek to the U.S. border.

This what thinking Americans who wish to preserve our country call winning.

Thanks, Mr. Barr.

The Witch Hunt is Dead! Long Live the Witch Hunt!

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

The Witch Hunt is dead! Long live the Witch Hunt! – In case you are wondering why every Democrat from Hawaii to Maine is screaming for Attorney General William Barr to “release the full, unredacted Mueller Report!”, it’s because they know that will never happen.

They know that Mueller’s report – assuming it is a fullsome narrative and not just the listing of indictments, prosecutions and deferrals required by the governing statute – will certainly be chock-full of classified information and other passages that the FBI and intelligence agencies will want to redact under their handy “sources and methods” rubrick.  They also know that AG Barr is an old pro, a guy who is going to play this situation strictly by the book, which likely means he is going to compile his own summary report that fully eliminates such concerns and release that to congress and the public instead.

Thus, their cynical and unfillable demand for the “full, unredacted report” will then be transformed into claims that Barr, the disciple of George H.W. Bush who most of them were praising just a few months ago, is now just a Trump toadie who is engaged in a coverup, claims that the Democrats plan to keep pounding right on through Election Day, 2020.

This claim of coverup will become a major part of the Democrat justification for mounting their own Witch Hunts that will consume most of the time over the next 18 months of at least three House committees:  Judiciary, Intelligence and Oversight. Party leaders feel they have no choice but to keep all of this anti-American nonsense alive in order for one of their array of freaks, miscreants, commies and outright nutjobs to have any chance of defeating President Donald Trump at the ballot box next year.

So, if you are frustrated that the Democrats who have spent the last 20 months guaranteeing us that Gestapo Chief, er, “Special Counsel” Mueller has “got the goods” on the President and several members of his family now refuse to accept Mueller’s finding that there was no “Russia Collusion” or “obstruction of justice” and allow our country to return to some sense of normalcy, well, this is why. Yes, it is demented; yes, it is depraved; yes, it is utterly despicable and un-American behavior, but hey, this is the Democrats we are talking about here.

What did you expect?

So, let’s review the Mueller Witch Hunt from a statistical perspective:

  • Money spent – well in excess of $30 million
  • Number of days – 675
  • Number of indictments – 34
  • Number of indictments against Americans – 8
  • Number of indictments against Russian ham sandwiches Mueller knows will never come to this country to stand trial – 25
  • Number of indictments against Concorde Management, whose trial Mueller continues to desperately postpone because he has a big bag of nothing against them – 1

MOST IMPORTANTLY…

  • Number of indictments related to “Collusion” or “Obstruction” – ZERO, ZIP, ZILCH, NADA

And what of our fake news media, this collection of propagandists for the Democrat Party who spent 20 months coordinating their messaging with the DNC on this matter, promoting the “Russia Collusion” fantasy like Nabisco promotes Vanilla Wafers?

In case you missed it, MSNBC’s resident conspiracy theorist, Rachel Maddow, was so upset by Mueller’s “no collusion” conclusion that she literally wept on national television last night:

Isn’t that glorious?

You can be sure that there was plenty of weeping going on behind the scenes over at CNN and the New York Times and the Washington Post and ABC, NBC, CBS as well, as all the fake-newsers saw their vaunted Ship of Mueller run aground on the sharp shoals of reality. But will there be any accountability for these people, even the slightest, meekest admissions of their abject, overwhelming wrong-ness for the last 20 months?

Oh, hell no. Of course not. Nobody at any of our major media organizations maintains the slightest concern about getting anything right anymore – they just care about getting Trump. So all we will see out of these despicable hacks – the ones who don’t break down in tears on live TV, anyway – will be a change in talking points to make it seem like they had predicted this outcome from Mueller’s operation all along, and that the “real action” is over in congress and the Southern District of New York U.S. Attorney’s office.

And remember: The reason they will do this is because… wait for it…THAT’S WHAT THEIR DEMOCRAT MASTERS TELL THEM TO DO.

Once you realize and accept that, it all makes perfect sense.

That is all.

Robert Mueller’s Big Bag of Nothing Springs Another Leak

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

Oh, that report was fake news? You don’t say. –  After having spent the last year and a half slandering Donald Trump, Jr. and his father, President Donald Trump, alleging that telephone records somehow showed that Trump, Jr. had called his father just prior to his famous meeting with several Russian nationals at Trump Tower in October of 2016, the news fakers at CNN scrambled to cover their filthy tracks yesterday. The implication of course being that then-Candidate Trump was fully aware in advance of this meeting and approved of it, something President Trump has consistently denied.

In a story hilariously headlined as being somehow “Exclusive”, CNN meekly informed its tiny online audience that “Senate investigators have obtained new information showing Donald Trump Jr.’s mysterious phone calls ahead of the 2016 Trump Tower meeting were not with his father, three sources with knowledge of the matter told CNN.”

Oh.  You don’t say. Tell us more.

“Records provided to the Senate Intelligence Committee show the calls were between Trump Jr. and two of his business associates, the sources said, and appear to contradict Democrats’ long-held suspicions that the blocked number was from then-candidate Donald Trump.”

You have to love the phrasing there. To be clear and actually honest – in direct contrast to CNN’s daily practices – it isn’t just the “Democrats” who have been promoting the massive lies about what was a simple and completely legal meeting in which Trump, Jr. and a few others working on the Trump Campaign thought they might get some intel on their Democrat opponents. CNN digital and on-air personnel have been happily and incessantly doing the same for a year and a half now.

And it hasn’t been limited to CNN, oh, no. We’ve seen the same sort of yellow fake journalism about this meeting from the New York Times, the Washington Post, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC and the whole of the fake news media establishment – a literal orgy of fake news gluttony about a single 40-minute meeting, the type of which any presidential campaign is going to conduct with outside sources several times a week.

Meanwhile, these same fake media outlets have to literally be forced into superficially mentioning the fact that the Pantsuit Princess’s campaign and the DNC shelled out MILLIONS of dollars paying the Perkins Coie law firm and Fusion GPS to coordinate with Russian agents to compile the fake Trump Dossier that has served as basically the sole basis for the last two years of endless and mindless investigations.

Bug-eyed Adam Schiff, the main “Democrat” referenced in the CNN report as having tirelessly pushed this fake story, must be devastated. Remember, when Donald Trump, Jr. testified behind closed doors before the House Intelligence Committee last year, details about his testimony were leaked to CNN while the hearing was still ongoing. The initial CNN report aired just minutes after Schiff had mysteriously left the hearing room for a few moments. Such a coincidence there.

In case you missed it, acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker told the leering press on Monday that he has been fully briefed on the Mueller Witch Hunt and believes it will be wrapped up soon. This came as a big shock to all the leftwingers who still cling to the belief that Mueller is going to just keep going throughout the duration of the Trump presidency, but I told you that it was pretty obvious last September that Mueller was in the process of slowly winding the thing down.

The reason why Mueller is likely to wrap it all up soon and issue his final report is exemplified by the collapse of this fake Trump Tower Meeting story: He is holding a big bag of nothing when it comes to  “Russia Collusion” and that bag has a bunch of leaks. The entire thing is a fantasy constructed by the Democrats and the fake news media, and, as Alan Dershowitz pointed out earlier this week, Mueller has yet to indict any American on any charge related to what his mission was supposed to be.

You can’t indict a sitting President on smoke and mirrors, and at the end of the day, that is all Mueller has. Time to wrap up this stain on our nation’s history. Long past time, in fact.

It’s 100% sure to work. – The simplest and surest way to get the Democrats and fake news media to stop trying to normalize pedophilia and infanticide in our society would be for President Trump to endorse both practices.  Then, all the Democrats and fake reporters would immediately be, like, totally against them. It’s a foolproof plan.

Ocasio Cortez Update! – She’s like an 8 year-old who just completed her first piano recital:

So now we know she’s pretty adept at reading a script prepared by others. Cool. Now, if she can master the practice of taking both sides of every issue depending on what audience she happens to be talking to, she’ll be just like a real member of congress.

Fake News, WaPo Headline Edition. – Check out how the news fakers at the Washington Post attempted to turn the Virginia Democrats-supporting-infanticide incident into a negative for the Republicans, and Ben Shapiro’s astute response:

Hey, you knew Planned Parenthood had to be pushing the infanticide bills. – Another bit of news from our You Don’t Say! department:

Was 2018 Really the ‘Worst Year Ever’? Uh, no.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Andrew Cuomo’s Russia Collusion manifests yet again. – On Thursday, Bloomberg reported on the arrival in Boston Harbor of a tanker filled with liquefied natural gas (LNG) that was produced in … wait for it … RUSSIA! I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

Yes, friends, the New England states have, for the second straight winter, been reduced to having to import natural gas from the Russian Bear despite their close proximity to our nation’s largest natural gas field, the massive Marcellus/Utica Shale basin. This is not only for home heating purposes, but for electric power generation as well, as most electricity in the Northeast is generated by natural gas-fired power plants.

Now, think about how utterly ridiculous this is. Our country is literally awash in natural gas. The U.S. is in fact the world’s largest producer of the commodity, and possesses by far the world’s largest reserves, with many centuries of proven supply beneath our soil.

We have so much natural gas, in fact, that the U.S. price for the commodity is far below the price that other countries lacking such reserves pay for imports of LNG. Where the U.S. NYMEX price for natural gas sits this morning at $3.30, America’s producers export large quantities of their own gas to countries like Japan and China, where they can command prices more than double that.

So, why is New England having to bring in LNG from Russia, you ask? Two words: Andrew Cuomo. Despite the fact that his state of New York obtains the overwhelming majority of its home heating and electricity needs from natural gas, Cuomo decided several years ago to take demagogic positions against the production of the commodity and the building of new pipelines to transport it in and through his state in order to enhance his prospects for being re-elected to a second term.

It is a simple geographic reality that, in order to build new pipelines from the Marcellus/Utica Basin to carry enough gas to the New England states to fill winter demands there, the pipelines must pass through the state of New York.  You don’t have to believe me – just look at a map.

Thus, for the second straight winter, tankers carrying LNG produced in Russia will now be landing in Boston Harbor.

Insanity.

The ‘worst year ever’? Seriously? – No kidding, I heard some liberal nitwit on the radio this week wail that 2018 has been the worst year ever for Americans. You can see similar sentiments coming from those on the radical left expressed all over social media at any given moment of any given day.

Look, I can understand why anyone who gets their news from CNN, MSNBC or the three major TV networks might feel that way, given the unending barrage of doom and gloom emanating from the newsfakers working at those fake news outlets every hour of every day. But the expression of this belief shows a mind-numbing lack of situational awareness and historical context.

Let’s start with some situational awareness:

  • Current unemployment rate – 3.7%, the lowest rate recorded since the 1960s, and 2% below the average rate recorded from 1948 through 2018. In 2009-10, there were months this rate reached 10%. Black unemployment, Hispanic unemployment and female unemployment all are at all-time lows.
  • Economic Growth – we’ve averaged 3% GDP growth this year, the highest this century.
  • Consumer spending – over the holidays, consumer spending – always a sign of a growing, healthy economy – reached all-time record levels.
  • Gasoline prices – in most states, the price for regular unleaded gas is below $2.00 per gallon.  Yes, there are exceptions, like the states of New York and California, but those are due to the high-tax policies of years of Democrat rule in state governments.
  • Jobs – as I predicted would be the case two years ago, the biggest problem in our economy today is that we have too few qualified workers to fill all the job openings out there right now. It’s a great problem to have.
  • Stocks – Yes, the stock market has gone all wobbly since October, but as we sit here this morning, the Dow is about 23% above where it sat two years ago. I’d take an 11.5% return each year in my IRA – wouldn’t you?

Now, let’s talk about historical context.  Compared to most of the past half century, the United States is at relative peace in the world. The biggest problem there is that the opposition to President Trump – the liberals and neo-cons who got us into 7 different civil wars in and around the Middle East during the Bush and Obama years – cannot stand that to be the case. Which explains why they’ve reacted so furiously to Trump’s proposals to end U.S. involvement in the civil wars in Syria and Afghanistan.

You want to know what all the furor among our media/warmonger establishment regarding Jamal Khashoggi was really about? It was about trying to destroy the Trump Administration’s strong relationship with Saudi Arabia, a relationship that the President is now leveraging in order to enable him to bring our American troops home from the Syrian hell-hole that Obama got us into 7 long years ago. You might also want to note that, since the Washington Post admitted that Khashoggi was in fact a shill for the Qatari government last week, the fake news media has basically quit talking about him.  Funny how that works.

The Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea is contained. North Korea and South Korea have normalized diplomatic relations, an amazing event no one but Donald Trump thought possible just two years ago. Russia may be exporting LNG to Boston Harbor, but it is otherwise staying within its borders. The most violence Americans have seen on their TV screens in recent months has been video of the riots taking place in Paris, which is a reaction to leftist/socialist political policies.

The worst year ever? Even America’s poor are so much better off today than they have been in the past. The poor among us in America today live lifestyles similar to those lived by America’s middle class half a century ago.

The worst year ever? Go back and read a little bit about how screwed up America’s air and water were as recently as the 1970s. Despite all the alarmist messaging coming every day from the socialist “environmental” movement, our environment is exponentially cleaner than it was just 40 years ago.

The worst year ever? In the palms of our hands, most Americans hold more computing power each day than existed on earth just 70 years ago.

The worst year ever? A century ago, few Americans owned cars and there was no such thing as commercial air travel. 90 years ago, no penicillin. 80 years ago, television did not exist. 65 years ago, no polio vaccine or interstate highway system. 50 years ago, no high-speed copiers. 40 years ago, no fax machines. 30 years ago, there was no email. 20 years ago, no text messages. 12 years ago, no such thing as an I-phone.

The worst year ever?  Shut up, you hopelessly ignorant fools.

That is all.

Why are CNN and MSNBC Such Cesspits of Racism and Bigotry?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

News you can’t trust, from NBC. –  The Daily Caller has a great piece of actual journalism up this morning, detailing how the dishonest fakenews hacks at NBC created a false narrative by misquoting a Republican Senator, ran with it all day long and still refuse to properly correct their multiple “errors.”

It takes about 5 minutes to read the piece in full, and it will be the best 5 minutes you spend today – well, except for the 8 minutes you’re about to spend reading the rest of Today’s Campaign Update, that is.

Why are liberal cable news operations such cesspits of racism and bigotry?, Part 9,385. – Harry Enten, an “election analyst” used by the newfakers at CNN, based his analysis of the 2020 race for the Democrat Nomination on that party’s – and perhaps his own – racism and bigotry towards white male persons here in the United States of America.

Don’t believe me?  Here’s a direct quote:

“If you want to win in the Midwest, there may not be a better man than this guy,” Enten said while talking about Senator Sherrod Brown, noting the Ohio legislator’s success as Republicans dominated in the state’s other races. “So if Democrats want to play, this is an interesting guy for them. I will point out though, another white male. I am very suspect of that this year going into a Democratic primary with women doing well and the African-American face of the Democratic party, I am not sure it’s the time to nominate a white man.”

No wonder Irish Bob O’Rourke likes to pretend he’s part Hispanic (he isn’t) – if you’re a white male in today’s Democrat Party, apparently you need not apply. Look for Bernie Sanders to soon change his first name to “Benito”, while Joe Biden will shock everyone by not going for the obvious “Jose” and pick the more elegant and Western-sounding “Sancho” instead. Creep Porn Lawyer Michael Avenatti, who harbors presidential aspirations of his own despite a series of personal setbacks the last few months, will no doubt go with “Basta”, the Spanish word ironically meaning “that’s enough” he uses at the end of every Twitter message he sends.

But hey, this Enten guy ain’t nuthin’ compared to Morning Mika (whose last name I can’t spell and don’t care too Google), who insulted Secretary of State Mike Pompeo live on air, before her entire audience that would fill an entire high school gymnasium, by using an anti-gay slur, calling him President Trump’s “butt boy.”

This, of course, is just par for the course over at MSNBC, where Joy Ann Reid still hosts a daily program six months after having been revealed as an anti-gay bigot. But hey, it looks like Mika did have to take at least one forced day off, as she did not show up for work Thursday morning after hurling her insult at Pompeo on Wednesday’s show, although she was right back to work this morning.

But back to Mike Pompeo for a moment.  This is a truly great American, a guy who not only graduated from West Point, but finished first in his class there. After spending 5 years in active service, he then obtained his law degree from Harvard University. He went on to run multiple businesses before being elected three times to serve as a congressman from his home state of Kansas. He served as Director of the CIA for a year under President Trump before being picked to replace the fired Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State, where he has done a fantastic job.

This is the guy Morning Mika refers to as a “butt boy.” Just so we’re all aware. And NBC/MSNBC is just fine with that.

They got their man, who they knew about long ago. – French law enforcement shot and killed one Charif Chekatt, a 29-year-old whom they had been searching for since Tuesday night’s attack near Strasbourg’s Christmas market. Chekatt, shouting “Allah Akbar!”, killed three shoppers and wounded thirteen more before fleeing the scene.

Unlike in America, where our law enforcement officials and fake news media pretend to wonder about the “motives” of obvious radical Islamic terrorists for days on end, only admitting to reality after pretty much everyone has stopped following the story, French officials identified this as an act of terrorism almost immediately, clearly identified the suspect they were looking for, and disseminated photos of him to help in their search.

While that is all commendable, one reason they were able to do all of that is because they had been aware of Chekatt and his terrorist associations for many months before he committed his act. Yet another “known wolf” who is allowed to commit mass murder before anything is done about him.  Sad.

Is NBC News Faker Than CNN? It Was On Monday.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Seems like there is a lesson to be learned in here somewhere. –  So, lessee here…the pro-Trump Republican gubernatorial candidate in Arizona, Doug Ducey, easily won his race by more than 150,000 votes.  Meanwhile, the Trump-avoiding GOP senatorial candidate, Martha McSally, who basically campaigned as the second coming of despicable RINO Jeff Flake, lost her race by about 48,000 votes at the latest count.

Hmmmm.  How do we explain that?  Think maybe there’s a cause and effect kind of thing going on there?  Nah, must be something else, because your fake news media tells you so.

Speaking of lessons to be learned, it seems the French government has a hard time doing that. – Fresh off of taking a series of cheap shots at President Donald Trump and the United States over these past four days, French President Emmanuel Macron saw his public approval ratings take another nose dive. The most recent poll shows that just 26% of French citizens approve of their juvenile President, while 71% disapprove.

President Trump must have seen that poll, given that he issued this tweet directed at Macron early this morning:

It’s good advice – are France and the rest of Europe capable of learning from the hard lessons of the past?  A review of the history of the 20th century is not at all encouraging.

Hey, hey, hey!  We have a narrative to stick to here, buddy! – NASA scientist Martin Mlynczak of NASA’s Langley Research Center expects the earth to go into a period of record…wait for it…COLD temperatures in the coming months and years thanks to a lack of solar sun spot activity.  The lack of sun spots, i.e., solar storms, in recent years is causing the sun to go into a prolonged solar minimum cycle during which the heat it emits is lower than normal.

“Right now, it is very low indeed … 10 times smaller than we see during more active phases of the solar cycle,” says Mlynczak.  “If current trends continue, it could soon set a Space Age record for cold. We’re not there quite yet, but it could happen in a matter of months.”  Yikes.

Somewhere, Al Gore is sweating anyway.

Lying is what she does for a living, after all. – Longtime Democrat fake journalist hack Andrea Mitchell repeatedly told her paltry audience on MSNBC yesterday that Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes is…wait for it… a Republican!  I kid you not.

The problem is, of course, she isn’t.  Yes, she was put into her office by doofus ex-Florida Governor Jeb! Bush, who is sort of a Republican, but Jeb! appointed lots of Democrats while Governor there because he wanted to be all bi-partisan and stuff, like any other good RINO would have done.

But Ms. Snipes is a registered Democrat today, and has always been a registered Democrat.  We could be generous here and speculate that Mitchell was simply mistaken yesterday, but it is far more likely that she, like everyone else in our fake news media, was actually reading from a set of talking points provided to her by the Democratic National Committee.

Oh, and speaking of Andrea Mitchell, she also had this to say on Twitter yesterday:

Yes, friends, NBC News, the same organization that allowed Matt Lauer to prey on young interns and aspiring reporters for years while his co-hosts joked about it on-air, the same organization that killed Ronan Farrow’s Harvey Weinstein expose’ before he got it published by The New Yorker, has won an award for its reporting on sexual harassment.  You seriously just can’t make this stuff up.

While we’re on the subject of NBC News… – Jonathan Allen published a fawning puff piece at NBCnews.com on Democrat gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum yesterday under this headline:  “Gillum Bets His Future on Defending Floridians’ Right To Vote,” which is possibly the most dishonest headline in the history of headlines.

Let’s be honest about what Gillum is defending here, ok?  No one, not Rick Scott, not Ron DeSantis, not Donald Trump, not anyone is attempting to deny any American citizen the right to cast a LEGAL vote, in Florida or anywhere else. Gillum is actually betting his future on trying to force the counting of fraudulent votes, illegal votes cast by non-citizens, dead people and people who never existed.  He’s betting his future on trying to force the counting of boxes of ballots mysteriously “found” after election day in trunks of cars, elementary school kitchens and other unlikely places, and ballots that witnesses testify were in fact filled out by Democrat election workers in Broward and Palm Beach Counties.

He is defending the chronic practice by elections officials in both of those counties to refuse to comply with Florida’s election laws, despite the fact that the state’s other 65 counties consistently manage to do so.  He is defending the refusal by Snipes and Palm Beach County Elections Supervisor Susan Bucher (Also a Democrat, despite what Andrea Mitchell might try to tell you) to comply with multiple court orders. He is defending the most obvious, blatant attempt to steal an election since Al Gore tried to steal a presidential election in these same two counties back in 2000. That is what Gillum is “defending” here, nothing more.

Luckily for the nation, Gillum and Democrat Senator Bill Nelson are going to fail, but NBC and the rest of our fake news media will just keep on lying about it all anyway.  Because that is who they are and it is what they do.

That is all.

Another Day, Another Failed Fake Media/Democrat Narrative

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Your fake news media in action! – NBC is under fire for having sat for more than three weeks on a story that would have helped to clear Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s name before the vote on his confirmation took place on October 6. Turns out that NBC reporter Kate Snow, in filing the fake news network’s original story on the gang rape claims being pushed at the time by nutjob Julie Swetnick and the Creepy Porn Lawyer, conveniently left out the fact that one of the “corroborating witnesses” the CPL had provided completely contradicted the key parts of Swetnick’s false story.

So, after Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley filed his first of two criminal referral letters related to Swetnick and CPL on Thursday (he filed a second letter on Friday), Snow and NBC apparently decided they better come clean and actually report the exculpatory evidence they had withheld, probably in an effort to  avoid the receipt of subpoenas from the Justice Department. Younger people expressed shock on social media Friday about NBC’s despicable behavior, but those of us old enough to remember the Bill Clinton/Monica Lewinsky scandal know it’s just par for the course.

After all, the Drudge Report became a big thing 20 years ago when Matt Drudge discovered that Newsweek and reporter Michael Isikoff had been sitting on the Lewinsky story for months in an effort to protect the predator Democrat President, and broke the story on his then-fledgling news-aggregation website.  There have been countless other examples of fake media outlets withholding what would be huge, possible Pulitzer Prize-winning stories in desperate efforts to protect their Democrat masters.  NBC itself was revealed just a year ago to have refused to allow Ronan Farrow to publish his #MeToo movement creating story about the disgusting abuser and huge Democrat donor Harvey Weinstein, which led to Farrow taking his research over to The New Yorker instead.

Protecting Democrats and violating journalistic norms to try to damage Republicans is what your fake news media does.  They believe it is in fact their duty.  Once you accept this reality, everything they do makes perfect sense.

Probably because she just won’t shut up and leave us alone. – Speaking of fake media outlets, the Washington Post has a Trump-bashing piece up this morning titled, “Why are we still talking about Hillary Clinton?”  Seriously, is there really some mystery here?  I honestly don’t recommend you waste your time reading it – just thought it was incredibly ironic, given the Pantsuit Princess’s own behavior, that such a piece could even be conceived and written, much less actually make its way into publication.

Optics are why Trump won, and they’re why this fake pipe bomb fiasco won’t impact the elections. – So, here are the optics of this whole fake pipe bomb deal:

President Donald Trump’s Justice Department just went balls to the wall to protect a group of the President’s most vicious critics who were being mailed fake bombs that posed no real threat to them. The initial arrest was made less than 72 hours after the “crisis” narrative arose.

Meanwhile, the Democrats and the fake news media are using the apparent Trump-supporting identity of this lunatic as a weapon to demean and libel not only the President of the United States, but any and all of Trump’s millions of loyal supporters as well.

Honestly, I’m not sure you could find a better way to ensure about a 99% turnout by Trump supporters to get out and vote in this election.

Think about it:  Mr. Trump, both as candidate and as President, has now held over 100 of his famous political rallies since 2015.  Those events have been attended by upwards of a million people, probably even more than that.  In all of those rallies, the fake news media has been able to capture exactly one violent act by a single Trump supporter, an elderly man who threw a harmless punch at a young protester who was being escorted out of the arena at one of the 2016 campaign events.

Now, we have a second apparent Trump supporter who is alleged by the FBI to be the person who has somehow sent 13 of these fake pipe bombs to various critics of the President.  I say “alleged” because, given that at least several of these packages were obviously not delivered by the U.S. Postal Service, since photos of them clearly show the packages were not postmarked, the FBI has yet to adequately explain how one guy driving an extremely distinctive white van could have caused all these packages to have been hand-delivered to various destinations all over the country within 36 hours of each other.

But I digress.

So we have this one guy out of more than a million who have attended Trump rallies, and out of more than 60 million who voted for him in 2016, an obvious dimwitted steroid freak who we’re supposed to believe is some criminal mastermind with almost magical powers of transporting himself and his fake bombs all over the country, and our fake news media and their Democrat masters are tarring and feathering the entire Trump supporter base with his actions.

I don’t really know what to say other than to point out that stuff like this is exactly why Trump got elected in the first place.  This constant, unending demeaning and slandering of ordinary Americans whose main desire in life is to be able to quietly live their lives with their friends and families in peace and some semblance of freedom from oppression by the government and assault from the elite political class is what caused millions of us out here in Flyover Country to not just accept Trump as a better option to the career criminal being offered up by the Democrats, but to ultimately become excited about rallying to his cause in 2016.

This week alone has already seen the utter collapse of two major Democrat/media narratives:  The Khashoggi thing that no ordinary American had time to care about, and the obviously-staged “migrant caravan” narrative that has backfired hugely on the Democrats.

This fake pipe bomb deal is well on its way to become the third major backfiring narrative in a single week.  That has to be some sort of record, doesn’t it?

Just another day in fake news media collapsing narratives America.

That is all.

The Democrat/Media Smear Keeps Evolving and Growing More Absurd

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The Irish Bob O’Rourke clean-up crew is working overtime these days… –  While Democrats on Capitol Hill in Washington are busy making up stories about what a terrible guy Judge Brett Kavanaugh was in high school and college, it turns out that the Democrat challenger to Ted Cruz for the senate seat in Texas really did have an extraordinarily misspent youth.

On Monday it was revealed that, at the age of 19, Irish Bob kept busy writing nasty reviews of Broadway musicals for his college newspaper, because of course he did.  In one of those reviews, he said that the actresses’ “only qualifications seem to be their phenomenally large breasts and tight buttocks.”

Now, if Irish Bob were a Republican, this noticing of young womens’ physiques would be turned into a week-long scandal of immense proportions.  The wailing from social justice warriors and virtue signaling from the #NeverTrump contingent at the National Review and the Weekly Standard alone would probably crash the New York Stock Exchange.

But Irish Bob is a Democrat, and because of that fact this got a posting on CNN’s website in an obvious effort by his campaign to get this pre-emptively into the public domain with a friendly media outlet to inoculate the candidate against any effort by his opponent to raise it.  Think of it as similar to you going to the local CVS to get a flu shot.

Just another example of your Democrat/fake news media axis of propaganda in action, folks.

ummm…don’t we need an FBI investigation on this?  If not, why not? – Lunatic Kavanaugh accuser Julie Swetnick, the client of the Creepy Porn Lawyer, was interviewed by some fake journalist at NBC on Monday.  During the course of the interview, she changed major, key parts of what she claimed in her sworn affidavit, meaning that she committed perjury in the document she filed with the Senate Judiciary Committee.

At about the same time she was being interviewed, President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) was authorizing the FBI to go ahead and include Ms. Swetnick in their list of people to be interviewed this week.  She was left off of the initial list, presumably because everyone with functioning synapses in their cranial cavities knows she’s lying her creepy ass off, but the ongoing demands from Democrats to expand the investigation led the President to act accordingly.

What this means is that, thanks to the Democrats who are perfectly happy to toss this woman to the wolves to support their daily narrative, the FBI will now formally interview Ms. Swetnick under oath, and compare what she says in that interview with what she said in her affidavit and what she told NBC.  This nutjob is in a world of trouble, and her creepy lawyer should be as well for giving her such awful advice.

We interrupt this program for a little #Winning found Monday on Twitter:

Hey, y’all, Trump’s calendar from July, 1982 has been found!

C’mon, that’s funny.  Admit it.

 

The evolution of a Democrat smear.

  • Democrats Friday:  He’s a rapist!
  • Democrats Saturday:  He drank too much in college!
  • Democrats Sunday:  He was belligerent when he drank too much in college!
  • Democrats Monday:  He threw ice at some guy in a bar when he was in college!
  • Democrats Today:  [Turn page in narrative manual] He lied under oath!

Yes, friends, that is where we are going today – that he “lied” when trying to recall a bunch of stuff that happened – or didn’t happen – 36 years ago.  He “lied” because some leftwing college professor who hates his guts claims that he saw Kavanaugh pass out on several occasions, something Kavanaugh and many people who knew him at the time all deny.

He “lied” because some other guy claims he saw Kavanaugh get violently aggressive when drinking, a claim that Kavanaugh and many people who knew him at the time all deny.

My personal favorite, though, is this one you will see being shopped by the fake news media today:

Mr. Griffin, who is a producer at the execrable MSNBC, is all giddy because he thinks this amounts to “lying under oath.”  But even if what the “two friends” are saying is true, it is no such thing.

Before I go on, a little background:  I spent years doing expert testimony as part of my job.  I’ve been deposed under oath many times, and testified in both civil and criminal cases.  I fully understand the position Judge Kavanaugh was in last Friday.

He was asked when he first learned of Ms. Ramirez’s allegations.  If what the two “friends” are claiming is true, he apparently heard rumors they were coming sometime before the New Yorker irresponsibly ran with its unverified and unverifiable story.

But, the most honest answer to the question that was asked was that the first time he truly learned of the specific allegations Ms. Ramirez was making was when he – and everyone else – read the New Yorker online posting.  That moment was when he first learned of the specific details of what Ms. Ramirez was alleging.

There’s no “lie” there at all – he in fact gave the most direct and truthful answer to the question that was asked, and did not expand on that answer.  That is exactly what any witness is always instructed to do.  He wasn’t asked when he first heard rumors these allegations might be coming – he was asked when he first learned of them.  Had he been asked when he first heard the rumors, he would have no doubt given a different answer.  Not because he was lying, but because he was telling the absolute truth.

But you can’t expect leftwing fake journalists at NBC or anywhere else to understand any of this, or care about it even if they do.  They’re carrying the water for the approved Democrat narrative, and today’s narrative will be that Judge Kavanaugh “lied under oath.”

Once that fails, the narratives for Wednesday and Thursday will only become even more absurd. Because that’s how Democrat/media narratives always evolve.

That is all.

The Evening Campaign Update

Some Twitter highlights from today:

Wait, you mean, like, newspapers that print inflammatory, blatantly false op/eds defaming the President of the United States without identifying the writer? Hey, I know one…

So, what do you do if you’re one of the fake news media outlets that has been promoting the notion that Irish Beto O’Rourke is going to beat Ted Cruz in the Texas Senate race, and you see a new Quinnipiac poll that has Cruz expanding his lead in the race to 9 points?  If you’re the newsfakers at @The Hill, you hilariously bury the lead as far and deeply as you can possibly bury it:

…and if that doesn’t get you far enough into fakery, you issue another tweet with another hilariously-biased headline that names the Democrat, but identifies the Republican with the four-letter last name only as “Texas GOP senator…”.  Holy cow, that is some serious #fakenews right there.

Meanwhile, Stephen Miller lightens the mood with a hilarious offering of his own, lampooning the shameful efforts by Democrats to falsely portray the FBI’s jurisdiction in the Kavanaugh matter…

Houston radio talk show host nails Democrats and their voting habits here:

Meanwhile, back in #fakenews world, NBC refuses to be outdone by The Hill or anyone else.  Note the use of the term “blindsided”.  Yes, because President Trump has only been transparently previewing his declassification action for about four months now:

 

Watching this guy change positions is like watching a child with a damn yo-yo. Blast Jeff Flake all you want, but at least he is consistently venal and cowardly.

Back in #fakenews world, MSNBC’s Kyle Griffin delivers a real “scoop” – that shameful valor thief Richard Blumenthal opposes the Kavanaugh nomination.  You’re a real scoop-meister, there, Kyle.

And finally, from our Good God Who Cares department, the Daily Caller delivers this little gem:

*sigh*

Just another day in getting the news as only Twitter can deliver it America.

The Big Question: If Mueller Makes Big Moves After Labor Day, Will Sessions Respond in Kind?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This is NBC, pushing that false narrative 24 hours every day. – NBC’s fake news hack Chuck Todd says something big is coming from Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel office today.  Not tomorrow, not Sunday, not next week – today.  Why?  Because Todd is still pushing the narrative that Mueller is some sort of stand-up guy who plays by the rules, and the rules dictate that his SC office should avoid influencing the November elections by making any big news between Labor Day and Election Day.  Given that today is the last “working” day before Labor Day, Todd figures Mueller’s gonna lower the boom on President Donald Trump.

This is, of course, all a lot of stuff and nonsense, as the great James J. Kilpatrick used to say.  Robert Mueller is just another Deep State skunk, and so is Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and there are no “rules” or even the least bit of oversight governing this fake investigation.  This is a witch hunt based on a fantasy, explicitly designed to interfere with the ability of a duly-elected President of the United States to conduct the nation’s business.

Far from being silent for the next two months, we can expect Mueller and his gang of Clinton/Obama hacks to pull out all the stops in their efforts to tilt the midterm elections in favor of the Democrats, which was the plan here from the day of Mueller’s appointment by his buddy Rosenstein.  Mueller’s office might announce something significant today, or it might not.  But the thought that this Special Counsel is observing any of the rules or traditions of the past is hilariously stupid, and not remotely connected to reality.

Jeff Sessions’ job is safe, until it isn’t. – In an interview with Bloomberg yesterday, President Trump said that Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ job is safe until at least Election Day.  After that, all bets are off.

“I just would love to have him do a great job,” the president said.

And thus the competing theories about the Trump/Sessions relationship are set up once again.  Is Sessions just another Deep State skunk who is too compromised personally to ever make a move to bring all the Obama/Clinton-era bad actors to justice?  Or is the public feuding between the President and his Attorney General a Kabuki dance designed to build up public and media sympathy for Sessions before he begins to make his moves in that direction?

Here’s the deal on that:  If you don’t see Sessions doing something big during the month of September, if you don’t see him responding in-kind to any big moves made by Mueller, you should expect to see him fired shortly after Election Day.

Speaking of NBC, The Daily Beast published a report on Thursday claiming that NBC’s executives threatened Ronan Farrow if he didn’t stop reporting on serial rapist and big Hollywood muckety-muck Harvey Weinstein.  This threat apparently came after Farrow had left the peacock network in protest over NBC’s refusal to run his expose’ of Weinstein which started the whole #MeToo movement.

If you remember, NBC claimed at the time that it felt Farrow’s reporting was “not ready” for publication, but Farrow had no problem convincing The New Yorker to run the story within weeks after leaving NBC a year ago.  The Daily Beast report, naturally based largely on anonymous sources (because of course it is), claims that “NBC News general counsel Susan Weiner made a series of phone calls to Farrow, threatening to smear him if he continued to report on Weinstein.”  NBC of course denies the report, but NBC reporters and executives have lied so often about so many things in recent years, and the network is itself so deeply involved with trying to cover up its own series of #MeToo-related scandals that no one can really take anything it says at face value anymore.

At the end of the day this is just a pissing contest between two of the worst fake news media outlets in the business, but the most believable aspect of it is the allegation that NBC did everything it could to protect a heinous scumbag like Harvey Weinstein.  Because, what else would a network whose biggest fake news personality at the time was Matt Lauer do?

Just another day in fake news media America.

Note to Democrats/Media: “If You Ain’t First, You’re Last”

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Remember what Ricky Bobby said:  “If you ain’t first, you’re last.” – The Democrat shills in our fake national news media spent their entire day yesterday trying to convince themselves – and I suppose their audiences, though that was a secondary concern, really – that Republican Troy Balderson’s win in the Ohio congressional district 12 race on Tuesday was actually a “win” for the Democrat Party.

The news fakers at NBC even went so far as to run a web piece hilariously headlined “Democrats are Losing This Race.  And they’re Thrilled About it.”  Their fake newsman Chuck Todd told the giddy Today Show hosts that he thinks the Democrats are going to pick up an additional 40-60 seats in the House.  Holy cow.  Talk about pushing a narrative.

See, because the race was close, and it was in a congressional district that has been held by the GOP for more than 30 years, and Trump won the district in 2016 by 11 points, so that means that a close loss is actually a “win” for the losers.  Get it?  Nevermind that 2016 was obviously a presidential election year and that voter patterns in presidential years are entirely different than in midterm years; nevermind that voter patterns in special elections like this one are also entirely different than voter patterns in regular elections – the media needs something to keep feeding its fake “Blue Wave” narrative, and if a “moral victory” is all they got, that’s what they’ll go with.

Now, what this all really was was an effort to buck up the troops.  Because the reality is that, other than the special election to fill the Alabama Senate seat left open by Attorney General Jeff Sessions way back in December of last year, the Democrats just keep losing these special elections.  This consistent pattern of their beloved Democrats coming up “close, but no cigar” is no doubt causing massive collective depression in news rooms all across America, so the narrative pushers push the “moral victory.”

It’s just like when Georgia Tech loses a close one to Georgia:  Yes, it’s just another loss, but the program needs to give the fans some reason to keep holding out hope that next year will be the year when the coach finally turns things around.  (Hint:  It won’t be.)

Meanwhile, the data and outcomes just refuse to support the narrative.  Chuck Todd obviously hadn’t noticed, but the three most recent generic congressional preference polls are as follows:

Economist/YouGov:  Democrats +3

Rasmussen:  Democrats +4

IBD/TIPP:  EVEN

No matter how one plays with those numbers, they do not add up to a Democrat “Blue Wave” that sweeps them into a new majority in the House of Representatives.

That IBD/TIPP poll, by the way, included a question about whether those being interviewed believe the country is on the “Right Track/Wrong Track”.  It came in at 50% Right Track, 48% Wrong Track, the first national poll on this question since late January 2017 to come in with a positive margin.

The RealClearPolitics average on that polling question is currently -10%, which itself is extremely good for President Trump.  Throughout Barack Obama’s entire second term in office, that question averaged in the -30s or even worse, as the public became increasingly sick of all the corruption and massive regulation brought to them by The One.

Folks, these are not polling numbers that support the notion that a big congressional turnover is coming.  That congressional preference poll average is going to have to be 7% or more in favor of the Democrats for them to pick up enough seats in the House to gain control.  It would have to be in double digits for them to have a real shot at doing the same in the Senate.

The movie “Talladega Nights” was about auto racing, and everyone laughs when Ricky Bobby utters his famous line, “If you ain’t first, you’re last.”  Because, after all, the guys who finish 2nd and 3rd in the average NACAR race still go home with tons of money and a big trophy.

But politics is different, and the guy who finishes 2nd in a special election doesn’t go home with a trophy or a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.  He just goes home.  In politics, if you’re not first, you really might as well be last, and moral victories are totally for losers.

Just another day in Ricky Bobby’s right America.

That is all.

The Great Turning of the “Russia Collusion” Tide Continues

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Oh.

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

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

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

Just another day in the bad guys are losing America.

NBC Admits Media Bias, but only in a Highly-Biased Way

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Even the fake news media’s pieces admitting media bias subconsciously display the media’s bias. – NBC has a piece at what it calls its “Think” website this morning that actually admits that the media is biased against conservatives.  Yippeee!!!  Happy days are here again!!!!  All the fake reporters have realized the error of their news-faking ways and are going to start reporting real news again!!!!

Ok, don’t get too excited.  This isn’t that, not remotely close to it.

The piece is actually just another hit piece on President Trump and his supporter base, which continues to grow in spite of all the #fakenews hysteria generated by outlets like NBC and CNN, written by an inveterate “Never Trumper” named Evan Siegfried. Siegfried bills himself as a “Republican strategist,” though the origins of that tag remain somewhat mysterious.

Among Siegfried’s previous writings is a piece he penned in May 2016 for the dying anti-Trump rag the New York Daily News titled “Why I’m With Her: A Republican strategist explains why he will vote for Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump.”  Oh.  That guy.

So you end up with a piece in which the President of the United States is accused of “weaponizing” the media’s own bias, which somehow ends up meaning that anyone who supports the President of the United States of America is living in a “post-fact world.”  This is #NeverTrump dogma, Book 1, Chapter 1, Verse 1.

Siegfried even goes to the brain-dead length of comparing the media’s treatment of President Trump to a couple of incidents in which New York City’s commie Mayor Bill DeBlasio complained about negative media coverage.  This of course ignores the reality that the NY City media’s coverage of DeBlasio has been overall the sort of fawning groupie coverage the media always gives to Democrats, while President Trump somehow remains a fairly popular POTUS despite vicious media treatment that has been 92% negative according to the Media Research Center.

He does at least correctly point out that the media’s treatment of Mitt Romney and George W. Bush was also absurdly negative and vicious – he could have gone all the way back to Nixon and Reagan to reinforce that point – and points out that the media’s long history of blatant, absurd bias against Republicans is the main reason why almost no one trusts the media to tell a story straight anymore.  But then he destroys all that solid historic foundation work by then going into attack mode on the President and anyone who supports him, in the process revealing his own anti-Trump hatred.

Here are some things he doesn’t point out about the media’s ridiculous behavior towards this President:

  • Neither the Washington Post nor the New York Times currently employs a single commentary writer who takes a pro-Trump view.  Everyone of their “conservative” writers are fervent #NeverTrumpers like Siegfried.  This is an unprecedented circumstance;
  • Just last week, one of the NYTimes’s fake conservative writers, Brett Stephens, admitted he was employed there “to oppose the President.”
  • The week-long media-fed hysteria characterizing the President’s private meeting with Vladimir Putin as being somehow unprecedented (it wasn’t) and even “treasonous” (it wasn’t);
  • The New York Times is still paying an anti-Trump reporter who was recently discovered to be trading sex for the illegal leaking of classified information.  She has simply been reassigned;
  • The Media Research Center – which Siegfried himself cites – has compiled a list of dozens of outright false reports filed by myriad media outlets, all negative to Mr. Trump, since Trump was was sworn into office.  Only a small handful of those outright false reports have resulted in negative consequences for the reporters and editors who allowed them to go to press;
  • Siegfried doesn’t mention the obvious, blatant message coordination that takes place between leading Democrats and pretty much every national media outlet on a daily basis.  Rush Limbaugh puts together montages of all these people parroting not just the same positions on issues, but the exact same words 2-3 times every month.  He could do one every day if he wanted to;
  • He doesn’t mention the obvious media practice of dummying up false stories based on “anonymous sources” every time there is a news development that is positive to the President.  John Kelly is about to celebrate his one-year anniversary as Trump’s Chief of Staff, and we have been through at least a dozen rounds of “John Kelly hates the President and is about to resign” media-generated rumor mongering since he took the office last August.  That appears to be the NYTimes’s  and CNN’s default fake story whenever they can’t find a porn star or centerfold to talk about;
  • And of course, Siegfried doesn’t make note of the fact that so many of these “journalists” make a practice of making their outright hatred for this President known to the world on their Twitter and/or Facebook accounts every day, which is the real key to everything here.

If it has done nothing else positive for our society, social media has served as the great unmasker of these people pretending to be unbiased “journalists.”  In times past, the American public had very little knowledge of the personal lives and attitudes of the reporters and editors who shaped the news every day.  That has all changed now, thanks largely to their 280-character daily rants on Twitter.

The truth is that we Trump supporters consider most of the media establishment to be #FakeNews today because we now know them so much better than we ever have before.  And that familiarity breeds contempt.

Just another day in fake news media America.

Every Day is “Opposite Day” in the Fake U.S. News Media

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

If you’re shocked at the utterly dishonest manner in which the entirety of the fake mainstream media is covering Spygate (thanks to President Trump for coining that shorthand term today), well, you need to pay closer attention to the Campaign Update and less attention to CNN.

Here’s the short message about this 100% “Opposite Day” coverage:  Get used to it, because it’s going to continue.  At this point in the saga, fake media outlets who have served as nothing but leak receptacles for the Deep State Cabal within the FBI/DOJ for the last 2 years have no choice but to keep coordinating fake narratives with the perps.

And boy, are the perps spreading a fake narrative.  Clapper’s on The View, telling the View Shrews that the Trump should be grateful for the FBI’s efforts to illegally surveil and entrap no fewer than half a dozen members of his campaign.

Ex-FBI Director and current teenage drama queen James Comey’s out there issuing tweets like this one…

…which of course perfectly describes the 8 years of Obama that Americans had had enough of when they went to the polls on November 8, 2016 and elected Donald Trump to the presidency.  But Comey’s either too dense or just too dishonest to realize it.

Interestingly, John Brennan, who the President went after on his own Twitter account on Tuesday, has remained oddly quiet since his Cicero-quoting outburst on Sunday.  But rest assured that can’t last – this is one seditious drama queen who, like Clapper and Comey, simply can’t contain himself.

And hey, when you have The View Shrews, Jake Tapper and the other class clowns at CNN, and the entire staffs at the New York Times and Washington Post eagerly waiting to take dictation from you and spread your false narrative, why not?

The most hilarious part of this comes when some fake reporter or opinionist manages to take a step back and realize that for President Trump, the mass media immolation that is going on is completely to his advantage.  Times fake columnist Frank Bruni went through an incredibly rare moment of clarity on Tuesday with a piece titled “Robert Mueller, You’re Starting to Scare Me.”  In this semi-lucid screed, Bruni frets that all the media focus on the Mueller investigation actually helps Trump enact his agenda by distracting the public’s attention away from all the other things he’s getting accomplished.

Well, welcome to the party, pal.  I’ve been writing about this reality for a freaking year now.  Good of you to suddenly try to catch up.

But trust me, Bruni’s fret is just a flash in the pan at the NYTimes, a one-off that won’t be repeated because it does not fit the narrative the Deep State Cabal is pushing.  Expect to see far less semi-clear thought pieces like Bruni’s, and far more utterly backwards reasoning in stories like this “analysis” from the fake newsers at the ongoing massive dumpster fire that is NBC News:

Hey, Remember That Blue Wave? Yeah, it Ain’t Happening.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this #Winning yet? Part I – The President, First Lady, Vice President and Secretary of State all turned out to Andrews Air Force Base at 2:00 a.m. to welcome home Kim Dong Chul, Kim Hak Song and Tony Kim, three Americans who had been held as prisoners for years by the North Korean government.  Their release was a show of good faith by the Crazy Little Fat Guy, Kim Jong Un, in advance of next month’s face-to-face negotiation with President Trump related to the de-nuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

The sight of one of the men hugging Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who had flown halfway across the world to secure their release earlier in the week, was enough to bring tears to the eyes of any thinking person.  Democrats and fake reporters were, of course, unmoved, given that these three men were released as the result of the efforts of President Trump, after having languished in a North Korean prison throughout much of the administration of media hero Barack Obama.

By the way, if you’re sitting there wondering why this kind of thing keeps happening under this President, when we never saw anything similar the previous 8 years, it’s because this President is trying.  It really is that simple.

Your news media in action!  Part I – The deranged lunatics at the New York Times, meanwhile, published a piece Wednesday morning lambasting Secretary Pompeo for being “AWOL” as President Trump announced he was ending U.S. participation in the horrible Iran deal.  Later in the day, after some no-doubt “anonymous source” (because that’s the only kind of sources the New York Times has anymore) informed the morons at the Times that Pompeo was actually rescuing a bunch of political prisoners, the fake newspaper published a piece that was actually positive about the prisoner release. What a dumpster fire.

Your news media in action!  Part II – Speaking of huge, raging dumpster fires, I give you NBC News.  Former Trump attorney Michael Cohen has been the subject of so much fake reporting by the Peacock Network that he felt the need to get on his Twitter account to try to shame the fake news operation into correcting some of his horrible reporting:

That’s right:  NBC News is so fake and lacking in any editorial standards whatsoever that it can’t even identify the correct guy named Michael Cohen before filing its reports.  I mean, dayum, people.

Your Democrats in action! – But the most disgusting spectacle of the day was, without question, watching as some of the very worst people on the face of the earth, like Kamala Harris, Mark Warner and Dianne Feinstein, questioned the nominee for CIA Director, Gina Haspel, about her “moral compass.”  My goodness.

Tired of all this #Winning yet?  Part II.  That Blue Wave is circling down the toilet. – Speaking of Democrats, that much-ballyhooed “Blue Wave” that all the Democrat operatives in the fake news media were telling you was an absolute certainty a few months ago has pretty much fallen off of even CNN’s fake news story rotation.  Maybe that’s because even CNN’s own congressional generic preference poll, which just four months ago claimed the Democrats led Republicans by a whopping 16 points, yesterday came in at just a 3 point Democrat lead, which happens to be within the fake poll’s margin of error.

The CNN result is pretty consistent with the other generic congressional polls, all of which have narrowed up substantially since the first of the year.  Which should come as no surprise to anyone.

I told you back in December that the whole “Blue Wave” thing was just wishful thinking on the part of the Democrats and their media support group.  I predicted then that as the tax cuts kicked into working peoples’ paychecks, the good economic growth news continued coming in, and other good things continued to happen, those numbers would narrow substantially.  I even predicted that the situation with North Korea, which at that time appeared to be a major crisis verging on a military conflict, would in fact be ultimately resolved on largely U.S. terms without a shot being fired.

Guess what’s about to happen?  The situation with North Korea is about to be resolved without a shot being fired.  Guess what will happen to those generic ballot polls when that happy result comes about?  The small Democrat lead will disappear entirely, and by August you’re going to be seeing polls showing that measure has moved into the GOP’s favor.  Hell, at this rate, you might start seeing such polls in June.

But that’s not all that’s about to happen in the coming weeks and months.  The Mueller investigation is about to come to a head, and will be ultimately resolved with no legitimate charges filed against the President.  Mueller may end up writing a report in which he tries to provide the Democrats some basis for an impeachment effort – which has been the goal of this “investigation” since day 1 – but that won’t matter because the Democrats aren’t going to win back control of the House in November.

“But wait, there’s more!”, to quote the late, great Billy Mays.  We’re also about to see the issuance of the final report from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, and the subsequent issuance of grand jury subpoenas and indictments targeting – guess who? – not the Trump Administration, but a bunch of Clinton and Obama loyalists.

Bottom line, the 2018 mid-terms will definitely be a “sea-change” election, but not the “blue wave” kind the fake news media was loudly touting a few months ago.  No, the “sea-change” in this campaign will be the massive shift that takes place in the generic congressional ballot polling between last December and this coming November.

And the beauty of all of this is that the Democrat Party leaders are so stupid and out of touch that they decided last year to discard anything resembling a policy agenda and hang their Party’s entire future on promoting hatred for Donald Trump.

Isn’t life great?

Just another day in that Blue Wave ain’t gonna happen America.

That is all.

NBC News is a Gigantic Dumpster Fire, and the Deep State Cabal Loves it

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – The ADP estimate on private sector jobs additions for April came in at 204,000, beating estimates that it would tally 190,000.  The Trump economy just keeps humming along.

NBC News is just a gigantic dumpster fire these days, but then you already knew that.  In addition to all the sexual harassment allegations hovering around its icon Tom Brokaw, NBC’s fake news division suffered yet another huge embarrassment by reporting a story that was so, so, so fake that even Special Counsel Robert Mueller apparently insisted they go back and correct it.  That, friends, is seriously fake news.

Around noon, MSNBC – NBC’s aggressively-fake news affiliate – reported that Mueller’s office has been wire-tapping the phone calls of former Trump attorney Michael Cohen, whom the Special Counsel Gestapo had already subjected to jack-booted thug raids on his home, office and hotel room in early April.  NBC breathlessly reported all afternoon that the intercepted phone calls from Cohen included – gasp! – one to the White House.  The White House immediately questioned the story, given that any such wiretap would clearly be illegal unless the SC had obtained a warrant from a federal judge, and Rudy Giuliani even predicted on Fox News mid-afternoon that the story would turn out to be fake.

But NBC clung to its fake “reporting” for about four and a half hours until, at about 4:30, the weaselly Chuck Todd was forced to admit that, in fact, Cohen’s phones had not been tapped, which would mean  that the Mueller Gestapo had been able to actually listen in to his conversations.  The truth – as far as the Mueller team is capable of speaking the truth, anyway – is that Cohen’s phone activity has been monitored by what is known as a “pen register”, which simply allows the feds to note the phone numbers he is calling.  This massive intrusion into a U.S. citizen’s privacy apparently requires no warrant.

This incident, of course, is just one of dozens of such instances we have seen over the last 16 months, in which some national fake news outlet reports some explosive “BREAKING NEWS!!!!”  that, if true, would be damaging to President Trump or someone around him, is allowed to linger in the public space for hours, often days, and then is forced to be retracted by the reporting fake news entity.

Hey, remember all those similar incidents that took place during the 8 years of Barack Obama?  No?  Neither do I.  Because this pretty much never happened during the Obama years.

Here’s why:  The fake news establishment loved Barack Obama.  Many in the White House press corps literally worshiped him – remember how so many of them compared Obama to Jesus Christ upon his election? – they probably prayed to him on a daily basis.  Barack Obama was the master, and the fake news reporters were his loyal lap dogs.

Lap dogs don’t go around pissing in their master’s lap – if they do, their master is going to stop petting them and stroking them and cooing baby talk into their ears, which is what Obama did with the journalistic profession for 8 years, in the process killing it dead.

These same lap dogs turned into a pack of rabid pit bulls when Donald Trump won the 2016 election.  They wake up every morning frothing at the mouth, intent upon doing anything they can to help Robert Mueller and the deep state thugs – like Rod Rosenstein – who remain in the FBI and Justice Department work to bring down this duly elected President.  Any time some “anonymous source” “with knowledge of the special counsel’s investigation” tosses them some potentially damaging nugget of “information”, they rush it into print or on-air without editorial oversight or the slightest care about whether or not it is true.

Because to today’s fake news media, “truth” is a relative concept.  Something is only “true” if it is damaging to the President or those around him and thus fits the narrative the media/deep state is attempting to brainwash into the public mind.  Stories that are not damaging to the President – like North Korea agreeing to release its American prisoners at Mr. Trump’s insistence – don’t get covered.  Stories that are damaging – like allegations of a 12-year old affair by a porn star – get covered ad nauseum.

This is all part the media/deep state game plan.  In NBC’s way of thinking, the embarrassment of having to correct a story pales in comparison to the damage done to the President of the United States by leaving it lingering out there in the public consciousness for four and a half hours.  After all, most people who heard the initial story will never know about the correction, and thus will walk around misinformed – and mis-informing their friends and family members – for the foreseeable future.

This is the Big Lie in action.  Joseph Goebbels would have felt right at home in today’s U.S. news media.

Just another day in the Big Lie lives in America.

That is all.

Comey’s Convoluted Con Continues, and Sessions Starts Clearing the Decks

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Why is NBC News such a cesspit of sexual harrassment? – Tom Brokaw got his #Metoo moment on the same day Bill Cosby was convicted of being a serial rapist.  The long-time NBC Nightly News and Today Show host was accused by former NBC and Fox News reporter Linda Vester of creating a very, very hostile work environment, quite similar to the environment that former Today Show host Matt Lauer created while he was at NBC.

NBC News is certainly not alone in having employed a series of skirt-chasing anchormen with egos as out-sized as the fictional Ron Burgundy, but it sure does seem to have been sex abuse central for the mainstream fake news media over the past 30 years.  And let’s never, ever forget that NBC aired the wildly popular Cosby Show, starring a serial rapist who drugged his victims, during the same years Brokaw was the star of its news division.

And these people wonder why journalists are held in the same level of esteem as used car salesmen.

Please, just don’t come to Texas. Economists Art Laffer and Stephen Moore have an op/ed in the Wall Street Journal in which they predict that as many as 800,000 mainly wealthy people will flee the extreme high-tax states of California and New York in the next few years, as the provisions of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act kick in.  Laffer and Moore predict that the limitations on deductions for state income, sales and property taxes will simply make it too expensive for these people to remain in their current home states.

The other 48 states in the union should look on at this story in horror, because the problem with New Yorkers and Californians fleeing to other states to get away from high taxes and high costs of living is this:  They go to other states and just keep voting for the same kind of idiot Democrats whose policy decisions caused them to flee in the first place.

Migrating Californians have already basically destroyed the state of Colorado; they’re responsible for sending the execrable John Tester to represent the state of Montana in the U.S. Senate; and they’re at least partly responsible for turning the once-quaint college town of Austin into a liberal nirvana of wildly-expensive, riderless light rail and bike lanes that make it pretty much impossible to get anywhere in the center city in less than half an hour.

Laffer and Moore say the migration won’t be limited to California and New York, stating “The losers will be most of the Northeast, along with California. The winners are likely to be states like Arizona, Nevada, Tennessee, Texas and Utah.”

Well, that all depends on how you define the word “winners.”  Those states should be very, very careful what they ask for, because politically, these people are barely distinguishable from a plague of locusts.

Comey’s Convoluted Con Continues. – I was going to talk about the fact that the Korean War is about to come to a formal end thanks to the aggressive foreign policies pursued by President Donald Trump, but as I was putting together this morning’s Campaign Update, the President just issued this tweet:

The teen drama queen ex-FBI Director who Mr. Trump had the “pleasure” of firing made the mistake of subjecting himself to a real interview with a real journalist – Fox News’s Bret Baier – last night, and the results were indeed rather stunning.

Here are just a few of the obvious, blatant lies Comey blurted out during the very tough questioning from Mr. Baier:

  • He claims that he still, to this day, does not know that the fake Trump Dossier was funded by the DNC and the Pantsuit Princess Campaign;
  • Even better, he repeated the claim that the work on the fake dossier was initially funded by Republicans, a bald-faced lie that was debunked months ago;
  • He continued to insist that his memos of conversations with Trump were not an FBI work product, saying that “I always thought of it as mine, like a diary.”  A diary?  Really???  Do you see now why I call him a teen drama queen?   The director of the FBI knows better than to make this hilariously false claim;
  • He laughably claims to this day to see no bias evident in the texts between Peter Strzok and his mistress, Lisa Page:  “When I saw the texts, I was deeply disappointed in them, but I never saw any bias.”  Holy crap;
  • And of course, he continues to claim that the four memos he leaked to his pal, Columbia Law Professor Andrew Richman, who then leaked them to the New York Times, do not constitute leaking;

Upon hearing that final claim, South Carolina Cong. Trey Gowdy, who is himself a former prosecutor, said that “what he defines as a ‘leak’ is what everybody else calls a ‘felony’.”

At this point, watching Comey give an interview is eerily reminiscent of that scene in The Godfather II, when Michael Corleone is called to testify before a congressional committee.  That’s not a good look on a guy who has been leaking classified information, lying to congress and probably obstructing justice to be putting on each’s night’s 5 o’clock news.

Mr. Mueller, tear up that big bag of nothing! – Finally, while all of that other stuff was going on, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, during his own testimony to congress yesterday, publicly advised Special Counsel Robert Mueller to take his giant bag of nothing against President Trump and wrap it up.  The fake news media of course did its best to bury this huge development – here’s a link to a typical example, a story on the matter from CNBC, which buries the lede in the very last sentence of a 500-word piece.

Because that’s what our fake news media does.  But no matter – you can bet Mueller heard Mr. Sessions’ message loud and clear.  Sessions didn’t just say that in testimony before congress for the sake of hearing himself talk.

Oh, and by the way, in case you missed it, Rod Rosenstein is “taking a pause” from his duties managing Mr. Mueller, ostensibly because he’s just the only guy in the whole Department of Justice who can argue a particular case before the Supreme Court.  Ok, sure.  The duties of managing Mueller have been assumed by Trump appointee, Solicitor General Noel Francisco.  Good timing there.  I’m sure it’s all just a coincidence.

Or maybe it’s this:  The decks are being cleared for the issuance of the Inspector General’s report in May, and Sessions was advising Mueller that it is time to shut the Witch Hunt down and let real justice take its course.  And Rosenstein’s “pause” was a great way for him to recuse without using the word “recuse.”  The word “pause” looks so much better in fake news media headlines.

Just another day in the conspiracy to end the Trump presidency is falling apart America.

That is all.

The Campaign Update Week In Review – Soooo Much Winning!

Here’s where we are in President Donald Trump’s Administration eight days before Christmas…

  • The economy is booming, with the New York branch of the Federal Reserve now estimating it will grow at the pace of 3.98% in the fourth quarter.  That would represent our third straight quarter above 3% economic growth, a feat not achieved in over a decade.
  • Unemployment is nearing a record low, asThirteen states this year have seen their unemployment rates drop to the lowest levels ever recorded since the federal government began keeping track of state-level data more than four decades ago.”
  • Regulations are vanishing at an amazing pace –  When he came into office in January, one of the first things President Trump did was issue an executive order mandating that, for every new regulation his agencies propose, they must eliminate at least two existing regulations.  The Trump Administration announced that it has in fact eliminated a staggering 22 existing regulations for each new proposal.  This rapid elimination of the Obama regulatory agenda is probably the main reason why the economy is booming today.
  • Obama holdovers are also vanishing at a rapid pace More than 700 employees have now left the EPA since President Trump took office.  Of course, as a friend pointed out Twitter, most of them will just go back to the radical leftwing anti-development groups they came from and continuing being a burden to society, but at least taxpayers won’t have to pay their ridiculous salaries anymore.
  • Meanwhile, at the Department of the Interior (DOI), Secretary Ryan Zinke announced this week that he had fired 4 senior DOI employees for charges of sexual harassmenet, and  said “I will remove 400 more if necessary.”  Cool.  Get after it, Mr. Secretary.
  • The Dow Jones Industrials closed at a record high on Friday, marking the 69th time that has happened since Donald Trump won the election over the Pantsuit Princes last November.  That is not a coincidence, either.
  • The largest tax cut in American history is on the verge of being passed – As mentioned in yesterday’s Campaign Update, the announcements by GOP Senators Marco Rubio and Bob Corker that they will support the bill would give Mitch McConnell the 51 votes he needs on Tuesday to send the bill to the President’s desk.
  • CNN, the king of the fake news universe, continues to suck wind behind Fox News and MSNBC in the cable news race.
  • The Federal Communications Commission rescinded the Obama Administration’s absurdly mis-named “Net Neutrality” rules.  These rules actually were designed to give favorable treatment to Obama-preferred Internet behemoths like Facebook, YouTube and Twitter, in that presidency’s fervent efforts to have the government picking winners and losers in every industry.  No more.
  • #MeToo meets “Hardball” – fake MSNBC host Chris Matthews found himself the latest NBC celebrity to be embroiled in the never-ending sexual abuse scandal on Saturday, when it was revealed that the network had paid out $40,000 to an accuser in 1999 and formally reprimanded him for his behavior.  Of course, like congress, the Peacock Network – which obviously has had a whole bunch of peacocks in rut running around its halls for many years – kept it all a secret until it had no choice.  With Matt Lauer, Mark Halperin and now Matthews all outed, The Campaign Update just can’t wait to find out what NBC has been keeping secret about its other hosts.
  • The Mueller-led attempted coup d’etat continues to unravel, and leftwingers are getting so desperate that they are now resorting to sending California Congresswoman Jackie Speer out to push fake “rumors” that the President is planning to fire Mueller before Christmas.   Hilariously, 70 year-old commie producer Rob Reiner and 80+ year-old washed up actor George Takkei both threatened to “take to the streets” should Trump fire the Witch-Hunter-in-Chief.  Now, that would be fun to watch.

Sadly, that won’t be happening, because Mueller won’t be going anywhere, at least not until the DOJ Inspector General issues his final report on wrongdoing within the DOJ and FBI in January.  Then, all bets will be off.

Just another week in Soooo Much Winning! America.

That is all.
