Thursday News Roundup: Trump Pardons Stone and Manafort, Fauci Admits He’s Been Lying

More Trump pardons. – 26 more altogether were issued last night as the President now appears to be winding his administration down despite all of his public messaging about the theft of the presidency by the Democrats and corrupt Republicans in coordination with Dominion Systems. In addition to the 26 pardons, the President issued commutations to three more individuals.

Included in last night’s pardons are Roger Stone and Paul Manafort, two Trump loyalists whose rights were heinously abused by the Mueller Gestapo as a part of the slow-rolling coup d’etat that held the country hostage for 20 long months. The full list of the beneficiaries of these pardons and commutations can be found at this link.

Naturally, the Trump-hating corrupt news media is going berserk this morning over the pardons of Manafort and Stone. Cool.

Eric Trump tweeted this out last night – it seems especially appropriate here:

Here are two suggestions for the President’s next pardons: Julian Assange and Edward Snowden.

Do it, Mr. President. Just do it.

Sassy Ben weighs in. – Sassy Ben Sasse let it be known he does not approve of these pardons, oh no, not at all:

Because of course he doesn’t approve. He’s an effete RINO, a terminally annoying clown who follows Mitt Romney around on a leash, apparently.

Imagine what a hissy fit Sassy Ben will toss if and when the President pardons Snowden and Assange. It would be glorious to behold.

Again, do it, Mr. President. Just do it.

Another Trump veto. – President Trump also issued a veto on Wednesday, though not of the $2.4 trillion in Covid/pork spending congress passed on Monday. Those bills remain in limbo at the moment.

The Trump veto yesterday relates to the $740 billion defense spending bill congress passed earlier this month with veto-proof majorities in both houses of congress. At the time of its passage, the President warned congress that he would veto the bill due to the fact that it does not contain repeal of Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. So, yesterday he followed through on that promise, as he pretty much always does, and corrupt reporters and politicians expressed their shock. Because they’re all either lying scumbags or morons.

Sorry, I know that’s harsh, but it’s the truth.

Speaking of lying liars who lie for a living… – I give you Anthony Fauci. The little menace to American society is in the news again this morning. Check out this tweet from the New York Times:

“Anthony Fauci has been slowly but deliberately moving the goal posts…”

You know what “deliberately moving the goal posts” is a figure of speech for, don’t you? LYING.

Yes, friends, Romans and countrymen, the New York Times, in a laudatory piece celebrating the little menace’s deceitful behavior, freely admits he has been outright lying to the American public for almost a full year now about each and every aspect of this viral plague from China. Fauci admits it, too, because, you see, his lying is all for your own good.

You don’t have to believe me: All you have to do is read the little menace in his own words in this excerpt from the Times story:

In a telephone interview the next day, Dr. Fauci acknowledged that he had slowly but deliberately been moving the goal posts. He is doing so, he said, partly based on new science, and partly on his gut feeling that the country is finally ready to hear what he really thinks.

Hard as it may be to hear, he said, he believes that it may take close to 90 percent immunity to bring the virus to a halt — almost as much as is needed to stop a measles outbreak.

Asked about Dr. Fauci’s conclusions, prominent epidemiologists said that he might be proven right. The early range of 60 to 70 percent was almost undoubtedly too low, they said, and the virus is becoming more transmissible, so it will take greater herd immunity to stop it.

Dr. Fauci said that weeks ago, he had hesitated to publicly raise his estimate because many Americans seemed hesitant about vaccines, which they would need to accept almost universally in order for the country to achieve herd immunity.

Now that some polls are showing that many more Americans are ready, even eager, for vaccines, he said he felt he could deliver the tough message that the return to normal might take longer than anticipated.

“When polls said only about half of all Americans would take a vaccine, I was saying herd immunity would take 70 to 75 percent,” Dr. Fauci said. “Then, when newer surveys said 60 percent or more would take it, I thought, ‘I can nudge this up a bit,’ so I went to 80, 85.

[End]

So, he’s nudging it up a bit based on polls, a clear admission that he’s been lying and waiting on the polls to authorize his next lie, because he really doesn’t know a damn thing about any of this and doesn’t want to admit it in public, since he’s paid millions of dollars a year to actually know stuff.

The little menace is nothing more or less than just another corrupt DC politician, triangulating his message – to borrow a Clinton phrase – to the public based on polls. This is not science; this is tyranny, a tyranny of clueless “experts” that has served as the basis for our nation’s entire insane response to this virus.

It’s the sort of tyranny that leads directly to this kind of lunacy on the cable fake news channels:

It’s as if no one on CNN or MSNBC is capable of noticing the simple, unarguable fact that this latest outbreak of the China virus has taken place as we are all social distancing and wearing masks. These two practices do nothing to stop the spread of this virus – nothing at all. Not a damn thing.

They are no different than what homeland security does at our nation’s airports: Meaningless, ineffective gestures designed to instill public confidence while in fact doing little or nothing to actually make us safer.

IF MASKS WORKED, WE WOULD NOT BE HAVING THE CURRENT OUTBREAK.

Seriously, how hard is this? But 90% of the public just regurgitates the media/Fauci talking points because we have become a nation of pathetic sheep.

There will be no New Roundup on Friday for obvious reasons.

Merry Christmas to you all.

Larry Schweikart: All the Times the Corrupt Media Pronounced Trump Dead

Guest Piece by America’s History Teacher, Larry Schweikart

[Note: Larry Schweikart, historian and author of the wonderful book “Reagan: The American President,” put up an excellent thread on Twitter last night, in which he takes the reader down memory lane. The thread chronicles many of the hundreds of times Democrats and their toadies in the corrupt, fake news media pronounced “the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.”

Think of how many times you have heard some talking head on cable TV make that statement. Trump has been pronounced dead so many times by so many nitwits that he is the envy of every alley filled with 9-lived cats. Below is Mr. Schweikart’s (@larryschweikart on Twitter) rapid-fire listing of many of the most epic examples, as only he can do it.]

1) As promised, a very long thread that I will Threadreader asap. But it’s important to review the constant, unending, perpetual claims that “it’s over for Drumpf” and “we’ve got him now.”

2) This is in light of the China Virus-It is real but it is also one of those “Good crises that go to waste” for DemoKKKrats & Hoax News media. So I am not misunderstood, Hoax Newsers/DemoKKKrats did not create/ invent the China Virus, but they are doing their best to exploit it.

3) So, let’s do a little trip down memory lane. Some of this comes from my “How Trump Won” with @joelpollak.

4) The first “gotcha” moment came in Iowa in July 2018 when Trump, asked a question about John McTurd–who had criticized him–replied that McTurd was a “war hero because he was captured . . . I like people that weren’t captured.” Supposedly this constituted Trump disparaging . .

4) contd . . all POWs & even the military. Immediately pundits & GOP elites said it was over for Trump. (“Trump crosses one line too many” blared Hot Air) Many reveled in thinking Trump had ended his campaign. Marco Rubio (Rubes) said the comment should be “a disqualifier . . .

4) contd . . as a commander in chief.”

Not so fast: Trump refused to apologize (which won him respect from people sick of Republicans apologizing for anything & everything) then pivoted to McTurd’s pathetic record on veterans.

5) The rapid spread of the story about 32-year-old Kate Steinle’s murder by an illegal in California brushed the McTurd story off the news. Blind Lemon Don grilled Trump on his comments about illegals “raping” but Trump had the last laugh:

5) contd . . “somebody’s doing the raping . . . . Who’s doing the raping?” Trump asked. Blind Lemon had no answer. By July 20 Trump took the lead in the GOP primary polling.

6) Except for a span of a few days in October, when Ben Carson slightly polled ahead of Trump, he never lost the poll lead throughout the nomination process.

7) Enter the “experts.” Karl Rove said Trump “won’t win” the nomination; George Will said Trump would be a disaster in the debates; Vox ran a piece saying Trump was “surging,” then reassured its readers “Here’s why He Won’t Win.”

7) contd . . Ross Douthat of the NYSlimes said “Donald Trump will not be the Republican nominee.” WaCompost editor James Downie: “Let’s dispose of the notion that Trump has a real shot at winning in Nov.” HuffPo: “Trump will not win the general election.” More?

7) Karl Rove: “Trump can’t win the general election.” Sean Trende: “There’s probably a 90% chance Trump loses.” The (Commie) Nation: “Relax, Donald Trump can’t win.” And our buddy Fat Frank Luntz: “Hillary Clinton will be the next President” (on election night!)

8) By August 2015, in public while all the GOP elites were saying Trump couldn’t win, @RushLimbaugh discussed story about big donors who were telling all the other candidates to do what it took to “Take Trump Out.”

9) In that debate Trump was the only candidate who refused to say he would back the party nominee if he didn’t win. To the GOPe that was horrifying. To mainstream Republicans looking at a repeat of a McTurd or Minion candidacy with Yeb (“low energy”) Bush, this was a good sign.

10) Trump had singlehandedly pushed illegal immigration onto the front burner: one project tracing the number of media “mentions” found that stories about illegals doubled after Trump.

11) By that time, among national voices only Rush and @scottadamssays caught onto Trump’s dominance of the news cycle, which cost him nothing. Meanwhile, competitors burned through their money.

12) So-called conservative voices ramped up their attacks. Rich Lowry called Trump “a loudmouth mogul,” Fox News routinely criticized Trump—but none of his opponents—and GOP Party Chairman Reince Priebus (“Rinse and Repeat”) said “Donald Trump [is not] the Republican brand.”

12) contd . . .That was music to the ears of many who were sick of the “Republican brand.” Ari Fleischer said Trump was a “risk for the party” by tarnishing every Republican.

13) No sooner did Trump critics claim he had no”meat” in his proposals (a fact that ended Ross Perot’s boomlet in 1992), Trump produced a widespread immigration reform plan with specific policy proposals.

14) By then some were admitting Trump might win the Iowa caucuses. Even then, they ignored the social media dominance that Trump wielded: he had almost 4mm Twitter followers, compared to Clinton’s 4+ million followers. (Later, one third of Clinton’s were found to be bots).

14) contd . . Trump’s weekly Twitter growth exceeded that of four of his main competitors combined. Trump gained about 400,000 followers a week in late 2015.

15) By then also, Trump was holding massive rallies of 15,000-20,000 people. No Republican & only Dinobernie Sanders could ever approach those numbers. At the end of October, Trump yielded the polling lead to Carson—who quickly crashed.

16) Next Trump raised the question about Muslim loyalty to the US. When the Hoax News/GOPe jumped on him, Trump claimed there were “thousands” of Muslims shown on TV celebrating 9/11. (Fact Check: True). Hoax News media had deliberately downplayed those celebrations . . .

16) contd . . in an effort to portray the majority of Muslims as “just like us.” Then tapes surfaced proving Trump’s claims.

17) Increasingly, by November 2015, it looked as though only the nearly-equally hated Ted Cruz could stop Trump. Cruz had made enemies out of the establishment with his one man government shutdown for a time under the Obama (Zero) Administration.

18) Then some amazing polls started to come out: Trump was viewed by black & Hispanic Republicans more favorably than any other candidate including Yeb & Rubes who pandered to them.

18) contd . . . Stories examining Trump’s support found it was across the board; young, old, men, women, college-educated and non-college educated.

19) Only two years later did analysis show that college education had little to do with opposition to Trump, but the location of the college educated Republican (i.e., big city vs non-big city). Naturally, this analysis did NOT come from GOPe insiders like Jay Cost or Adrian Gray

20. Having resigned themselves to the fact that Trump would indeed win a lot of primaries, Hoax News and the GOPe insiders now fell back to their next position, that Trump couldn’t reach the 1,237 delegate number for the nomination.

20) contd . . (My own analysis in late Feb. 2016 showed Trump would win close to 1,300 delegates. He actually got closer to 1,400).

21) Then came the next “This is it for Drumpf”. After an article from the National Enquirer about Ted Cruz cheating appeared, Cruz blamed Trump. A PAC associated with Cruz in Utah ran an ad on Melania Trump citing her days as a lingerie model.

21) contd . . The incident was enough to get Cruz Wisconsin & raised hopes he and Ohio’s John Kasich could somehow unite to deny Trump the delegates.

22) Perhaps more important, Cruz had begun poaching Trump’s committed delegates trying to persuade them to switch. This led Trump to counter by firing Corey Lewandowski and bringing in Paul Manafort.

23) Manafort had one job and one job only: secure the nomination from the “insiders.” He did it well. Make no mistake: without Manafort, Trump wouldn’t be president.

24) All hopes of defeating Trump within the primary process ended after a Cruz loss in Indiana.”We left it all on the field,” a dejected Cruz said.

25) Next up in the “This is it for Drumpf” was the notion that Trump would spit the GOP. Didn’t happen. A few pungerpuckers like Bill (Broken) Kristol and David FrenchFry threw tantrums, but most Republicans lined up to defeat Cankles.

26) What ensued was the most criminal, unethical, and fraudulent use of “news” and “polling” in American history. I’ve been over their tactics before. What Hoax News & Hoax Polling did not realize was that by lying perpetually and universally about Trump . . .

26) contd . . they ended all claims to legitimacy they ever had. Republicans never believed them. After November, neither would DemoKKKrats.

A whole book needs to be written on this whoring of polling & the Hoax News media and its effect on real news.

27) One of the next major steps for Trump was to ditch Manafort. First, charges were coming out that he was dirty and tied to Ukraine. Second, however—even unknown to Trump—he needed a different type of campaign for the stretch. Enter Kellyanne Conway and Steve Bannon.

27) contd . . Just as Trump needed Manafort at the right moment, he needed Bannon and Conway at the right moment. But the foundation for the campaign was Brad Parscale and Jared Kushner—Mr. #s and Mr. $$.

28) By mid-October, Trump was hitting on all cylinders, while Cankles was often hitting the pavement. To this day, no one knows what was wrong with her, but her failing health and uninspiring persona had her falling behind Trump (again, despite Hoax Polling).

29) An internal poll shared with me by Bannon in the first week of October had Trump winning & had him VERY close in Rhode Island (!), Oregon, and Illinois. I was so stunned I asked Bannon if those numbers were right. He confidently said yes.

30) Then, Oct. 9, just before the debate, came the “Access Hollywood” video–the latest “This will finish Drumpf” move. While it likely cost him New Hampshire and Minnesota–and possibly the popular vote–it flushed through the system before it could do permanent damage.

31) Next up was the election, then the immediate post-election stories that Trump would resign before the inauguration. I still don’t know where those stories came from, except Pence was always elevated in these stories.

32) As inauguration neared, next up was the “Trump will resign soon. He really never intended to govern.”

33) Then came the shocker: Sessions recused himself & Rat Rosenstein signed off on the Special Counsel to look at the “muh Russia” collusion campaign hatched by Cankles.

34) That led to the “It’s Mulehead Time” & claims Mulehead’s band of flagellating phonies would “take down Drumpf.”

35) Next in the “Get Drumpf” lineup: Porny Daniels, who turned out to have nothing. She was aided and abetted by “the next president,” Michael Avenatti.

35) contd . . He soon found himself facing a felony conviction for extortion from Nike. Avenatti was held in jail awaiting sentencing—the man who (it was thought) “would put Drumpf in jail.”

36) On October 27, 2017, Manafort was indicted. “Now we’re gonna get Drumpf.” Except not. Manafort never gave Mulehead or his team any info, despite massive jail sentences.

37) That same month, Omarosa resigned touting in her book Unhinged (which must have referred to herself) that she had “secret tapes” of Trump using racial language. Except she didn’t. Though she may have violated the Espionage Act in releasing a tape, she is still not in jail.

38) In May 2018, the “Now we got Drumpf” loonies indicted Michael Cohen & raided his offices. Whackadoodle Libs (WLs) were SURE that he & all the files/computers the FBI seized would be the silver bullet.

38) contd . . Now, with Avenatti, Cohen became the second one who was gonna “be the one to get Drumpf” who himself ended up in jail. Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison for tax evasion & campaign finance violations.

39) In March 2019, the Whackadoodle Lefties’ wet dream, the Mulehead Report, was released—except there was nothing in it. Despite what you may read on the Satanic Wikipedia, the report proved no Russkie Collusion. It so disappointed the WLs they dragged . . .

39) contd . . the senile Mulehead into Congressional Testimony, where he stammered, stalled, and failed to provide one single damning piece of evidence. WLs were beside themselves. Their “sure thing” to get Drumpf had blown up in their faces.

40) In July 2019, using a leaked “whistleblower” (i.e., traitor) report of irregularities in a phone call between Ukraine (note: not “muh Russia” any more but Russia’s ENEMY!), Congress began an investigation centered on Lt. Col. Veeta Vita Vindman.

40) contd . . Since Mulehead had collapsed, this was the only thing the now-DemoKKKrat-controlled House could concoct. They came up with two articles of impeachment.

41) In December 2019, the utterly corrupt Congress approved the articles on “abuse of power” and “obstruction of Congress” (a term that doesn’t even exist in the Constitution.) The Senate rightly voted these two down 52-48 and 53-47. Only one so-called Republican, . . .

41) contd . . Minion Romney, voted for either. Soon thereafter, the traitorous Veeta Vita Vindman and ambassador Gordon Sondland were given the boot.

42) And finally, there was the “Trump will never run for reelection.” Oddly, Trump filed for a reelect committee in 2017, almost immediately after winning the first time. This time, he has raised more money, & faces a far weaker opponent, while having made more inroads . . .

42) contd . . with black and Hispanic voters since 2016.

And WLs think the China Virus or blue-state lockdowns are gonna get Drumpf now?

43) Trump will be reelected with between 320 and 340 electoral votes in 2020, likely winning the pop vote by a significant margin.

But Demented Biteme could turn those numbers into an even bigger margin for Trump.

Don’t bet against him.

Trump on Obama-Era FBI Leaders: “They’re Human Scum.”

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

During his press conference on Sunday, President Donald Trump was asked by one of the Democrat operatives posing as reporters if he was considering pardoning Roger Stone before he begins to serve the prison sentence handed to him by his kangaroo court trial a few months ago. In his answer, the President implied  he considering a pardon not only for Stone, but for Paul Manafort and General Mike Flynn as well.

Here is a clip, followed by a transcript, of the President’s remarks on the subject:

Transcript:

Reporter: Mr. President, have you thought any more about pardoning Paul Manafort or Roger Stone so they’re not exposed to the coronavirus in jail?

Trump: Well, I just tell you this. Roger Stone was treated very unfairly. Paul Manafort, the black book turned out to be a fraud. We learned that out during the various last number of weeks or months. They had a black book that came out of Ukraine, turned out to be a fraud. Turned out to be a fraud. They convicted a man, turned out to be a fraud.

General Flynn was a highly respected person and it turned out to be a scam on him. The FBI said he didn’t lie and Mueller’s people wanted him to go to jail. Okay? So what am I going to do? You’ll find out what I’m going to do. I’m not going to say what I’m going to do, but I will tell you the whole thing turned out to be a scam, and it turned out to be a disgrace to our country, and it was a take down of a duly elected President.

These people suffered greatly. General Flynn, I mean, what they did to him, and even the FBI said, and they had some, and nobody’s a bigger fan of the FBI than me at the level of the people that really matter. But the top of the FBI was scum, and what they did to General Flynn, and you know it and everybody knows it, was a disgrace.

He was in the service for over 30 years. He ends up being a general and respected. Respected. And almost his first day in office, they come in with papers. They want to investigate him. Never happened before, and now the tables are turned. Investigate the investigators, I guess. These were crooked people. These are bad people. These are very dangerous people. You know what they are though? They’re scum. They’re human scum.

[End]

Indeed, the people at the top of the FBI at the time – James Comey, Andrew McCabe, James Baker, Bill Priestap, Peter Strzok – are human scum. And yes, there is no doubt whatsoever, based on the information we have on the public record today, that they were all involved – along with Robert Mueller and Rod Rosenstein and many others – in what was a coup d’etat on American soil. This is an unforgivable act, most likely authorized at the very highest levels of the Obama Administration, that must never be forgotten and just allowed to quietly fade from the national memory. Because if that’s allowed to happen, then we can be sure that similar operations will take place in the future.

If ever there was a time to start perp-walking these people before the cameras into the local police station and booking them on charges, it is now, while the entire country’s attention is focused on the news of the day. There has seldom been a similar time of national focus since the days following the 9/11 attacks 19 years ago.

U.S. Attorney John Durham, on the direction of Attorney General William Barr, has now been working on his “investigation of the investigators” for more than a year, far more than enough time to start producing tangible results. Yet here we sit, without a single perp walk, indictment or trial involving the human scum who first tried to fix a national election and then tried to take down a duly-elected President of the United States.

This situation is intolerable for a free nation, and it cannot be allowed to stand. President Trump could at least begin to start righting the excesses of the Nazi-style Mueller “investigation” by issuing pardons to Flynn and Stone, and even Manafort (who was actually convicted of some real wrongdoing) if he so chooses.

Somebody needs to do something real here.

That is all.

The Deep State Legacy of Rod Rosenstein

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

The legacy of Rod Rosenstein is a complicated one, and one that, as we will discuss later in this piece, is far from through being compiled.

Some conspiracy theorists on Twitter and some fringe websites like to portray Rosenstein as an American hero, a Machiavellian schemer who makes Machiavelli himself look like a novice in his tireless efforts to protect President Donald Trump as he out-conspiracies the Deep State Cabal that operated within the DOJ and FBI throughout 2016 and 2017. In this scenario, every action Rosenstein has taken since coming into the Trump Administration as Deputy Attorney General in early 2017 has been part of an incredibly complex “Slow Walker” plan schemed up by Donald Trump even before the 2016 elections, a plan that Rosenstein has spent the last two-plus years carrying out.

It’s all a lot of “stuff and nonsense,” to quote the late, great James J. Kilpatrick. Rod Rosenstein is a bad guy. A very, very bad guy, and unlike operation Slow Walker, there is a ton of very public evidence to support that assessment.

For starters, this is a guy who in one week in May 2017 wrote a three-page memo to President Trump detailing myriad reasons why then-FBI Director and current Teen Drama Queen James Comey needed to be fired, and then the very next week turned around and appointed his pal and Comey’s best friend, Robert Mueller, to become a “special counsel” partly to investigate whether Comey’s firing amounted to “obstruction of justice.” The Rosenstein-as-hero people want you to believe that was all a highly patriotic act schemed up by Trump himself.

Holy crap.

Rosenstein is a guy who wrote not one, but two scoping memos for Mueller that allowed the “special counsel” to basically function as a completely out-of-control Witch Hunt, a completely open-ended  “investigation” with no limitations or legal side bars. Rosenstein then spent the next year and a half working feverishly to ensure that neither of those two memos could be made public. We haven’t seen them to this day.

Rosenstein is a guy who actively pushed the idea of having President Trump removed from office under the scope of the 25th Amendment, and at one point volunteered to wear a wire to meetings with the President in an effort to entrap him in some bad act, according to at least two people who have testified under oath to congress. The pushers of Operation Slow Walker want you to believe that Trump planned that, too.

In the Operation Slow Walker scheme, even Jeff Sessions’ idiotic move to recuse himself and set Rosenstein up as the de facto Attorney General was all just a part of Trump’s “5D Chess” conspiracy to entrap the Deep State. I’m not kidding. In that role as de facto Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein sat by and did nothing as Robert Mueller hired a staff of 19 leftwing Clinton/Obama hacks. Rosenstein then sat by as Mueller essentially functioned as Chief of the American Gestapo, allowing his activist staff to order the FBI to knock down doors in the middle of the night and terrorize elderly American citizens who had yet to be accused of any crime.

Rosenstein sat idly by as Mueller and his staff bullied, threatened and destroyed the financial life of a real American hero, General Mike Flynn, who had spent his entire adult life serving his country. Rosenstein, the hero of Operation Slow Walker, sat idly by as Mueller and his band of Gestapo thugs convinced a judge to sentence Paul Manafort – a near-70 year-old man accused of financial crimes having zero to do with “Russia Collusion” – to month after month of solitary confinement.

Rosenstein sad idly by as his buddy Mueller and his thugs deployed no fewer than 37 FBI agents armed with kevlar vests, automatic weapons, tear gas and even – I’m not kidding here – TANKS in the wee hours of the morning to arrest a thin, frail senior citizen named Roger Stone, terrorizing Stone’s wife who suffers from frail health in the process. Stone’s alleged “crime”? Having communications via email with Julian Assange. Not kidding.

This is the “hero” of Operation Slow Walker. What a load of horse manure.

Rosenstein was able to operate with impunity while the useless, neutered Jeff Sessions was in the AG’s office. It is crystal clear that, had Sessions remained in that office, the Mueller operation would still be going today with no end in sight. But Sessions’ resignation (he was really fired, let’s be honest) put a leash on Rosenstein and Mueller when Matthew Whitaker assumed the office as Acting AG. That leash got tugged hard when William Barr was named as the permanent AG.

Rosenstein’s “resignation” was intentionally timed to take place after the issuance of the Mueller report, so that he would be there to support Barr’s assessment of it, and before the issuance of the coming FISA Abuse report from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz. Barr needs Rosenstein as a witness in any criminal cases that arise from the Horowitz report – Rosenstein was also the signatory on one of the fraudulent FISA applications – something Rosenstein could not do if he were still employed at DOJ.

Coincidentally, Rosenstein’s final day in office will also come two years to the week after he wrote the 3-page memo recommending Comey’s firing.

This guy’s no hero, he’s just another deep state skunk, like his pals Comey and Mueller. The public evidence indicates he was a willing and active, leading participant in an effort to effect a coup d’etat on American soil, an effort that thankfully failed. Once Barr was named Attorney General, Rosenstein likely made a deal to save his own skin, and is probably now working as a cooperating witness in order to save his pension.

Rod Rosenstein was the architect and enabler of the Mueller Witch Hunt, nothing less, nothing more. Our government is well rid of him, but we will most likely be seeing and hearing much more from him in the future in an entirely different role.

Ta ta for now, Rod.

The Week in Review: Jussie, Alexandria, Ilhan and Various Other Frauds

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

The Week in Review, courtesy of the @GDBlackmon Twitter Feed…

The week started with a really bad poll for the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez/Bernie Sanders Democrats, and went downhill from there.:

And now a moment for some funny stuff…:

If you doubt that leftists hate you, all you have to do is listen to what their talking head heroes say on national television every day. Then the doubts will disappear.:

Bernie Sanders misspelled “Democrats” so I fixed if for him.:

Matt Walsh didn’t need a documentary on HBO to tell him Michael Jackson was a media-protected monster. Neither did I.:

Nick Searcy was fantastic in “Justified.” He’s even better on Twitter.:

Oh.

Amy Walter asks a very pertinent question, and I have a ready answer.:

CNN is garbage, Part 17,556.:

Actually, what drives people crazy is that she’s as powerful as an actual sentient human being.:

Oh, yeah, and this actually happened. No really, it’s not photo-shopped or CGI. Pinky-swear.:

The New York Times’ Maggie Haberman is a trained propagandist, er, “journalist”, oh yes she is.:

Here is Wisconsin’s new governor, announcing his effort to secure his state’s electoral votes for the Democrat nominee in 2020 via voter fraud.:

It’s a real blessing sometimes, this “Climate Change” thing.:

And now another brief comedy break…:

Oh, hell, and one more…:

Rep. Rob Bishop nails the essence of the Green New Deal.:

I’m sorry, but c’mon. Be serious.:

Dear Diary:

If “Global Warming” isn’t stopped soon, we’re all going to freeze to death.:

Leftwing propagandist David Corn won’t post photos here because he’s lying, and Sky Harbor Airport called him out on it.:

Kat Timpf is silly, and it’s showing.:

This is a big, big deal. Next, they’ll be writing off Florida.:

Hint: The backup plan’s name is Wendy Davis. No, really, I’m not kidding.:

Not surprising, since they can’t risk having any real journalist like Brit Hume or Bret Baier asking any tough questions. Utterly pathetic, but that is today’s Democrats for you.:

Oh, hey, Mitt Romney actually got to visit the Oval Office.:

Nick Short shows us how it all works.:

Please stop giving Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her fellow Green New Deal promoters bad ideas!:

The Democrats were having a little trouble finding away to condemn Ilhan Omar’s rank anti-Semitism…:

Ok, c’mon – you know I’m right here.:

I’m right about this, too.:

He exists, he just doesn’t do anything.:

Finland provided us with another object lesson about socialism on Friday. Was anyone listening?:

I’m more than happy to concede the future of the Democrat Party to the likes of AOC and Ilhan Omar, just so long as we can concede the future of the GOP to the likes of Dan Crenshaw.

Traitors gonna traitor.:

Jussie’s in a bit of hot water.:

San Fran Nan applies the soft bigotry of low expectations to her new “rising star”.:

Just a thought…:

The week ended on a high note.:

Nancy Pelosi is Now the Adult in the Room, and That’s a Huge Problem for Democrats

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

Ohhhhh, the humanityyyyyyy!!!!! – All hell broke loose on social media among the snowflakes, social justice warriors and fake journalists who work for the New York Times and CNN when the judge in the Paul Manafort trial rejected American Gestapo Chief, er, “Special Counsel” Robert Mueller’s draconian sentencing recommendation.

Instead of going with Herr Mueller’s recommended 19-24 years, which would have certainly been a life in prison sentence for the 69 year-old defendant, Judge T.S. Ellis III issued a sentence of 47 months behind bars.  Manafort, who was convicted of literally nothing remotely related to the Special Counsel’s actual mission, will receive credit for the 9 months of absurdly-punitive solitary confinement he has already served as a result of this continuing witch hunt.

This “light” sentence greatly harmed the sensibilities of the same Democrats everywhere who love seeing convicted rapists given probation, and who are currently embarked on a coordinated effort with the fake news media and entertainment industry to convince us all that pedophilia should be treated as a mental illness and not a crime.

“To impose a sentence of 19-24 years on Mr. Manafort would clearly be a disparity. In the end, I don’t think the guidelines range is at all appropriate,” Ellis said. “I think what I’ve done is sufficiently punitive, and anyone who disagrees should spend a day in a federal penitentiary,”

For those who haven’t been paying attention, Manafort was convicted of tax evasion and violations of campaign finance laws, all of which crimes occurred years before he ever met Donald Trump. When these same charges were alleged against Manafort and brought to the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York during the Obama Administration, the SDNY felt they were not important enough to pursue.

But no crime is too petty to pursue when the American Gestapo is on a witch hunt. In the end, Manafort did the crimes, and he is going to do the time, just not the de facto life sentence that Herr Mueller and his evil minions wanted.

That’s justice.

Ok, bear with me – just trying to keep up here… – So, since Election Day, 2018, the national Democrat Party has now given its full-throated endorsement to:

  • Infanticide
  • White politicians wearing black face and Klan costumes and nicknamed “Coonman”
  • Tax rates of 70-90%
  • Taxing your assets, not just your income
  • Spending $32 Trillion on “Medicare for all”
  • Spending $30 Trillion on free college and student loan forgiveness
  • Spending $93 Trillion on the “Green New Deal”
  • Open borders
  • Any obvious hoax that targets the President of the United States or his supporters
  • Confiscating your guns
  • Teaching transgender ideology to your kindergarten children
  • Allowing people with male genitalia and musculature to steal athletic trophies from actual girls

And, as of yesterday evening…

  • Anti-Semitism

Am I missing anything?  I’m sure I must be – these people move so fast now in their efforts to utterly destroy American society and culture that it has become almost impossible to keep up.

I never in a million years thought I would actually write these words, but the real problem with the Democrats in congress now – and it’s a huge problem for all Americans as well – is that Nancy Pelosi is, for the first time ever, the actual adult in the room, and she has completely lost control. She has now lost control to such an extent that she and her fellow geriatric-ward leadership team can no longer convince their caucus to endorse a simple resolution to condemn the rank anti-Semitism that comes through the throat and Twitter feed of the Enemy Within, Minnesota Congressperson Ilhan Omar.

After Omar’s latest disparaging remarks about Jews on Monday, Democrat members of congress concerned about losing Jewish votes, led by New York’s Eliot Engel, announced they would demand the House of Representatives pass a resolution condemning Omar and anti-Semitism. But then all hell broke lose within the House Democrat caucus, as fellow anti-Semites like Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and Rashida Tlaib rushed to defend the Enemy Within.

Three days of chaotic haggling over the resolution’s language ensued, and last night the House approved a final resolution that condemns homophobia, Islamophobia, racism, sexism, child-abuse and even got in a reference about white supremacy and Charlottesville, but did not mention Ilhan Omar by name or the anti-Semitic remarks she had made.

Thus, Millennial college campus politics have now assumed control of the House Democrat Caucus. This is a very important moment in our nation’s history, not some random, minor event. The Party’s new inability to issue a simple condemnation of one bigoted member’s long-held and constantly-expressed anti-Semitic views, or otherwise punish her in any real way, signals that the Democrat Party is now prepared to discard its traditional stronghold on Jewish voters in favor of Muslims, just as, a decade ago, it began the process of discarding its traditional stronghold on organized labor in favor of illegal immigrants and open borders.

Democrats have been moving in this direction for several years now, but yesterday, March 7, 2019 is the day it became official. Henceforth, members of the Jewish faith who cast votes for Democrats are casting votes for their own destruction.

Aren’t all you Democrats proud?

*sigh*

The Guardian Beclowns Itself in Mad Rush to Fake the News

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Was that wrong? Is there, like, a rule against that? –  It turns out that there actually is a rule against wedding photographers having sex with an invited wedding guest while the reception is ongoing, and then urinating on a tree when the cops show up to investigate.

That was actually a revelation to one Katie Mehta, 26, who moonlights in the Weatherford, Texas area as a wedding photographer when her swimsuit modeling career isn’t producing enough revenue. When the deputy sheriff providing security for the wedding was alerted by other guests to some illicit sounds coming from an ante room, he found the comely camera clicker engaged in some hanky-panky with one of the guests. His efforts to disentangle the pair were rewarded with a profanity-laced verbal assault. When he escorted the young professional out of the hall, she broke free and promptly rushed over to the nearest tree where she allegedly began to relieve herself in the same manner as your pet labrador does on his morning walk.

By that time the local police had shown up and promptly took her to the pokey.  Shockingly, one of the arresting officers stated that the frisky Ms. Mehta “smelled strongly of alcohol.” Go figure.

Displaying a similar type of anti-social behavior, the newsfakers at The Guardian mounted a strong challenge to CNN and the New York Times for this week’s title of Fakest News Outlet, filing a report, citing anonymous sources of course, claiming that former Trump Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort had visited Wikileaks founder Julian Assange no less than three times in 2013, 2015 and 2016, the last meeting taking place just weeks before the DNC’s hacked emails were made public during the midst of the presidential campaign.

Given that Assange has been holed-up in London’s Ecuadorian embassy in order to avoid prosecution for all of that time, and there are dozens of surveillance cameras on every block in that city, my immediate reaction to this story was that it was a rather pathetic attempt at the sort of news fakery in which CNN and the Times have cornered the market over the past few years.  Obviously, had Paul Manafort actually ever visited Assange at the Ecuadorian embassy, not only would formal official records exist of those visits, but there would be copious amounts of video evidence as well.  I mean, c’mon, Manafort’s a big, distinctive-looking guy – if he had really gone to see Assange in the midst of the 2016 campaign, we’d have had absolute, irrefutable proof of that visit in 2016.

Let’s also remember that Manafort had been under FBI surveillance since 2014 due to his lobbying efforts – in partnership with Tony Podesta – on behalf of the Ukrainian government. Are we to really believe that he would somehow be able to visit the notorious founder of Wikileaks, entering through the front door of the Ecuadorian embassy in London, without the FBI noticing?

Wikileaks responded immediately and somewhat hilariously to the story with a message on its Twitter account: “Remember this day when the Guardian permitted a serial fabricator to totally destroy the paper’s reputation. @WikiLeaks is willing to bet the Guardian a million dollars and its editor’s head that Manafort never met Assange.” As of this writing, neither the Guardian nor its editor’s head have responded.

It took Manafort a little longer to get a response out to the story – he is in federal prison, after all – but when he did, his denial was similarly unambiguous:

“This story is totally false and deliberately libelous. I have never met Julian Assange or anyone connected to him. I have never been contacted by anyone connected to Wikileaks, either directly or indirectly. I have never reached out to Assange or Wikileaks on any matter. We are considering all legal options against the Guardian who proceeded with this story even after being notified by my representatives that it was false.”

It is a sad fact of modern life that news-faking goes on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in our fake news media, but it has been awhile since any major news outlet file a report as manifestly fake as this one in an obvious effort to try to prop up the Democrats’ dying “Russia Collusion” fantasy play.

For its part, the Guardian has not, as of this writing, retracted its blatantly false and libelous report, although it did go back into it add a bunch of weasel-word language after Wikileaks and Manafort issued their forceful denials. In the end, it seems amazing that any editor worth a damn would have agreed to run the story in the first place.

But hey, when you’re competing with CNN and the New York Times in the news-faking business, you’re playing with the big boys and mistakes are going to be made. For the Guardian, this was a doozy.

The Media and Pollsters are Getting Cold Feet on this Whole “Blue Wave” Thing

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This is really not a good look for any Pope.  – This happened yesterday.  I have no idea what to say about it, other than that just happened:

Why do we have to read about this in a British news outlet? – Just when you thought the Department of Justice was completely asleep at the wheel, it goes and arrests a leaker.  The UK Daily Mail reports that one Natalie Mayflower Sours Edwards (I swear I did not make up that name) was arrested on the streets of Washington, DC on Tuesday and charged by DOJ investigators on Wednesday with crimes related to illegally leaking the private banking records of various Trump Transition Team members to the fake media outlet Buzzfeed.

When she was arrested, Ms. Mayflower Sours Edwards, an employee of the U.S. Treasury Department, was actually carrying a thumb drive that contained the records in question.  So, obviously not the brightest bulb in the Treasury Department’s light fixture.

Interestingly, Ms. Edwards (sorry, I’m not typing all that other crap anymore) leaked information related to Paul Manafort and Rick Gates, along with suspected Russian spy Maria Butina, all of whom have been subjects of Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel “investigation.”  Others whose records she leaked are not specifically identified in the complaint filed by the DOJ.

Why am I mentioning this?  Well, one of those “others” is likely to eventually be revealed to be former Trump lawyer Micheal Cohen, who became a target of the Mueller “investigation” when his own banking records were mysteriously released to several media outlets, including to Ronan Farrow at The New Yorker in May.  The U.S. news media is under-playing this story for now, but this lady with the odd name is likely to be revealed to be a pretty important player in how all of this “Russia Collusion” fantasy play morphed into a bank-and-tax fraud investigation over the course of the last year.

Oh, and one other thing:  The complaint also states that Ms. Edwards boss was leaking to reporters.  So, the arrests over at the Treasury Department might just keep on coming.  What in the hell is going on over there?

Little Mouth Always Running lives in her own little dreamcatcher world.  – The newsfakers at The Washington Post tweeted this little gem out early this morning:

Good to know.

More proof that a Lindsey Graham freed from the pernicious influence of John McCain is a vastly improved Lindsey Graham:

You go, Senator.

Today’s lesson in Democrat Mob Civility from the People’s Republic of Portland, Oregon:

Just a reminder that this is exactly the behavior that has recently been endorsed and encouraged by leading Democrats like Maxine Waters, Hillary Clinton and Eric Holder.  Keep that in mind on Election Day.

And speaking of the elections… – Some interesting pieces of information from the past couple of days show the media and pollsters who have been pushing their treasured “Blue Wave” theory for the last year now starting to back off as Election Day approaches and the actual data fails to give them comfort:

  • NBC News getting cold feet.:  “Uncertainty Over A Blue Wave:  NBC News Finds Democratic and GOP Voter Registrations at Same Levels as Past Election Cycles.”  You don’t say…
  • Speaking of cold feet, there’s Nate Silver.:  “Nate Silver’s warning about midterm predictions that journalists won’t want to hear”.  Man, it’s 2016 all over again.
  • The Times keeps getting results it doesn’t want. – New York Times live poll shows Texas Congressman Will Hurd with an 8-point lead in what was supposed to be a tossup district.
  • From our That’s Not a Valid Sample file… – CNN released a poll on the Texas Senate race on Tuesday that shows Ted Cruz leading Irish Bob O’Rourke by a 52-45 margin.  Ok, so, why am I mentioning this poll?  Because its sample included just 25% Republicans, 25% Democrats and 50% “other”.  This in a state in which the GOP had a 50% turnout edge over the Ds in the primary elections, and in which Republicans have won every statewide election since 1994.
  • Why even bother? – In Indiana’s senate race, Gravis released a poll this week purporting to show incumbent Democrat Joe Donnelly with a 4 point lead over GOP challenger Mike Braun.  But the poll only surveyed 377 “likely voters”, and has a margin of error of 5.1 percent.  Which means that, in reality, we know nothing more about the true state of the Indiana senate race today than we did before that waste of time poll was released.
  • This is what you do in the final weeks of a campaign when you have tons of money and you know you are losing. – “Beto Goes Negative on Cruz in New Ads”. 

So what does this all mean?  It means you need to stop worrying about polls and stop asking me about polls.  Because, as I keep pointing out to you, most of these polls are meaningless.  Most of them are not even commissioned to actually gauge the status of a race, but to influence the direction of a race.  In fact, that is pretty much the only kind of poll we have seen throughout the duration of the Cruz/O’Rourke race, with only a few exceptions.

The best ways to gauge the status of the races are to get a grip on the overall national mood, which this year favors a pretty much status quo election, and to also look at how the candidates themselves are behaving – O’Rourke being just one of many examples available to us.  It is also obvious that the Democrat senate candidates in North Dakota, Arizona, Florida, Missouri, Tennessee and Nevada are sucking wind right now, and the Democrats in West Virginia, Indiana and even New Jersey are getting very nervous.

One more time:  When all is said and done, expect the Republicans to lose 10-15 seats in the House, but not the 23 necessary for the Democrats to assume a majority there.  In the Senate, expect the Rs to gain a net 4-5 seats.  That’s been my prediction since January, and I still see no reason to adjust it.

That is all.

Today’s Campaign Update – The Week in Review

Today’s Campaign Update – The Week in Review

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This week, we introduce a new feature at the Campaign Update – The Week in Review.

Ok, actually we introduced this last Friday evening, but failed to take the time and space to point it out.  We’re going to plan to post one of these every Saturday afternoon at least through the end of this year’s mid-term election campaign, at which point the plan is to assess their utility (and readership level) and decide whether they should be continued.

In putting these Campaign Updates together every morning, it often becomes impossible to adequately capture all the big things that are taking place related to our national politics.  Every day has multiple news cycles, as the leftwingers in our fake news media and the Democrat Party become increasingly panicked about their prayed-for “Blue Wave” failing to materialize and the growing reality that Robert Mueller is systematically taking the steps necessary to wind down his fruitless “investigation.”

We can only expect the pace of fakenewsery to speed up even more during the 8 weeks remaining until Election Day, meaning that, in order to keep everyone updated on the campaign, the Campaign Update must work a little overtime.

The plan here is to summarize the week’s major events in bullet point format, heaping as many insults and pithy comments upon all the snowflakes, SJWs, fake newsers and other creatures on the political left as we can think to include.  Links to relevant stories will, as always, be included where relevant and useful.

So here we go with the Campaign Update Week in Review, Episode 2.

This was the week that all the following happened:

  • Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, a shameless SJW himself, admitted that his “conservative employees “don’t feel safe to express their opinions” while in the Twitter corporate workplace.  Man, what do you think tipped him off?
  • Meanwhile, over at Google, tapes of a leadership team meeting that took place shortly after the 2016 election revealed that, contrary to their pious claims of impartiality, the social media behemoth does indeed do everything it can to distort its search results in favor of liberals.  Very predictably, none of the TV networks, nor CNN or the NYTimes or Washington Post devoted any time or space to covering this major story.  Go figure.
  • The Washington Post told us that President Donald Trump is “complicit” in the creation of Hurricane Florence because he doesn’t spout the dogma of the religion of Climate Change, but oddly gave him no credit at all for the hurricane’s being downgraded from a Cat 4 storm to a Cat 1 as it approached the Eastern Seaboard.  Odd.
  • The fake news media’s coverage of the leadup to and destruction caused by Florence was every bit as fake as one would have expected, as the fake journalists did everything they could think of to use the storm to try to damage President Trump and any other random Republican who got in the way.  So tiresome.
  • We learned that RINO Senator Ben Sasse “thinks about leaving the Republican Party” every morning.  So go already.
  • President Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was restored over last weekend, and has, as of this writing, remained unmolested by enraged social justice warriors a full week later.  Amazing.
  • Speaking of stories the mainstream fake news media couldn’t be bothered to spend a second reporting, a Republican candidate for congress out in California was stabbed by a lunatic supporter of his Democrat rival, incumbent congressman Eric Swalwell, who I remain convinced played Otter in the 1978 film “Animal House.”  When Swalwell was interviewed on CNN the very next day, he was not asked a single question about the stabbing by the fake news hack doing the interview.  *sigh*
  • Les Moonves got his sorry butt “MeToo’d” out of his job as CEO of CBS.  The management at CBS was so angry at all the bad PR Moonves brought the organization that they sent him packing with a severance deal totaling only about $100 million.  Not kidding.
  • San Fran Nan said she agrees that, where the Democrats are concerned, “it’s time for new blood and we should move on.”  That’s the good part.  But in her next breath, she promised to continuing clinging to power so long as Donald Trump is President: “to have no woman at the table and to have the Affordable Care Act at risk, I said, ‘As long as he’s here, I’m here.”  Oh, goody.
  • Paul Manafort “flipped” in order to get a plea deal from Bob Mueller, but it’s an open question whether his flipping is any sort of bad news for President Trump or just for Tony Podesta, with whom Manafort partnered to lobby for some Ukrainian clients during the Obama Administration.  Given that all the charges that Mueller had brought against Manafort were from that long ago period of time, the latter seems most likely.
  • Political fabulist Bob Woodward’s new book trashing President Trump immediately topped all the best-seller lists, but it turned out that possibly the most damaging allegation in it relates not to the President, but to Obama’s CIA Director, the execrable John Brennan.  Oh, my.
  • Corrupt New York Mayor Andrew Cuomo sent the eternally irritating Marxist Cynthia Nixon packing, and nobody really cared.
  • The New York Times tried to smear Nikki Haley and it backfired immensely, proving that sometimes justice still does prevail in this country.
  • Late in the week, despicable California Senator Dianne Feinstein pulled a last minute stunt to try to derail the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, but when even the fakenewsers at the Washington Post were ridiculing the highly-predictable tactic, it quickly became obvious that it won’t work.

With the final Senate floor vote not scheduled to take place until September 29, though, no one should blithely assume that Feinstein and her fellow depraved Democrats are finished trying to slander the nominee.  They probably have several more arrows in that Luciferian quiver they drag around with them.

Stay tuned.

That is all.

Dear President Trump: Think Twice Before Pardoning Paul Manafort

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

When I was a kid I had a friend who called his a tallywhacker. – Ok, I’m not really sure how to address this in this normally G-rated Update, but here goes…

A California-based “health information provider” that calls itself Healthline created a stir yesterday when it published a piece advocating that society must stop referring to certain male and female body parts by their real names because…wait for it…oh, you have to wait for this one…THEY ARE TOO GENDER SPECIFIC!

Yes, friends, the social justice warriors who have spent the last few years trying to brainwash you into believing that gender orientation is “assigned at birth” are now telling you that using proper terms for body parts like “vagina” and “penis” are too gender-descriptive and result in…wait for it…DISCRIMINATION.  I swear I do not make this stuff up.

But this goes on:  “For the purpose of this guide, we’ll refer to the vagina as ‘front hole’ instead of solely using the term ‘vagina.’”  And yes, you guessed it, your “anus” is now to be called your “back hole,” and a man’s “penis” is now to be referred to as…well, I’m not even going to go there.

Liberals:  If they didn’t exist, no one in their right mind would ever dream of making them up.

He was guilty.  Oh, and by the way, it’s a witch hunt. – One of the jurors in the Manafort case, a woman named Paula Duncan, summed up the case against Paul Manafort perfectly in an interview on Fox News on Wednesday:

“Certainly Mr. Manafort got caught breaking the law, but he wouldn’t have gotten caught if they weren’t after President Trump,” Duncan said of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s case, which she described as a “witch hunt to try to find Russian collusion.”  She went on to say that “Something that went through my mind is, this should have been a tax audit.”

Yes, exactly.  Years before he went to work on the Trump Campaign for 60 days, Paul Manafort was a scofflaw when it came to properly reporting his income for tax purposes.  A whopping amount of income as it turned out, which came to him during a time when he was working in tandem with Tony Podesta, brother of John Podesta, for some Ukrainian clients.

This should have been a tax audit, conducted by the IRS.  Any U.S. attorney in America could then have prosecuted the case based on the tax audit’s findings.  Instead, the case ends up being pursued by a bunch of Clinton/Obama thugs working for an out-of-control Special Counsel, who are using the case purely as a political tool to try to damage the duly-elected President of the United States.

Paul Manafort was guilty and will now do time for his crimes.  That’s how our justice system is supposed to work.  It just shouldn’t have taken place at the hands of an extra-constitutional special counsel and his band of Clinton/Obama thugs.  This should have been a tax audit, conducted years ago by the Obama IRS.  But of course, the Obama IRS was too busy persecuting conservative 501(c)(3) organizations to bother conducting tax audits.

Beg pardon? – Meanwhile, President Trump told Fox News host Ainsley Earhart that he is “considering a pardon” for Manafort.  This would be a bad move.  Yes, Manafort was heinously abused by the Special Counsel thugs, held in solitary confinement for months for purely political reasons.  If the President does issue a pardon, he should clearly cite this, and the kangaroo court nature of the entire prosecution as the reason for doing so.

But Manafort is guilty of the crimes for which he will be sentenced.  He’s the classic Washington, DC swamp rat, exactly the kind of career operative who has for a lifetime existed in and abused the system that Mr. Trump campaigned against in 2016.  He made his living as a part of that swamp for decades, profited immensely from its perpetuation, and cheated the government – and thus, the American people – out of millions of dollars in the process.  A jury of his peers – including Ms. Duncan, who is such a fan of the President that she carries a MAGA cap in her car everywhere she goes – found him to be guilty.

At the end of the day, a pardon of Manafort would be a betrayal of the work that jury performed.  While the President’s loyalty is admirable and his anger at the way this case was handled is certainly understandable, this does not seem like the place for him to make his stand.

Just another day in out-of-control Special Counsel America.

The Mueller Investigation is “Seinfeld”: A Popular Show About Nothing

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Coincidence?  Probably not. – ICE agents found, arrested and deported the last known Nazi WWII-era prison guard living in America.  The Democrat Party, its paramilitary arm, Antifa, and it’s propaganda arm in the national fake news media all want to abolish ICE.  Let that sink in.  They also all want to confiscate your guns and abolish the 2nd amendment.  Think about why that is.

The Robert Mueller Special Counsel Juggernaut thus far… – Ok, lessee here.  To this point, here is what Bob Mueller and his gang of Clinton/Obama hacks have produced thus far in their 16 month-long “investigation”, i.e., Witch Hunt:

– Obtained convictions of Paul Manafort for a series of financial crimes committed a decade ago while Manafort was working for Ukrainian clients alongside…wait for it… Tony Podesta, the brother of Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta;

– Had to farm out the Michael Cohen case to the Southern District of New York due to its irrelevance to anything having to do with the Special Counsel’s charge;

– Has now postponed any sentencing of Gen. Mike Flynn for the FIFTH TIME since Flynn entered his guilty plea for “lying to the FBI,” a plea that has now been conclusively shown to have been given under duress as Mueller and his thugs threatened Flynn’s family;

– Is begging to get 30-90 days in jail for George Papadopoulos, who the fake news media tried for months to portray as the very justification for the FBI’s illegal spying on the Trump Campaign during 2016, but has now been conclusively revealed as little more than a bit player, if a player at all;

– Has indicted about 30 Russian ham sandwiches who will never come to America to stand trial;

– Was forced to desperately postpone the trial against the lone Russian ham sandwich that did show up for trial because he and his thugs were completely unprepared to make a case;

– Has in 16 months brought ZERO charges that in any way relate to allegations of Trump “collusion” with Russia, the ostensible justification for the investigation in the first place;

– Has in 16 months delivered ZERO evidence to support rampant media allegations of obstruction of justice on the part of President Trump.

This is a clown show, folks. Or a better analogy is that it’s like Seinfeld – a show that everyone watches and laughs about and talks about the next morning over the water cooler at work, but which is ultimately about nothing.  A big, ol’ flaming bag of nothing.

The Cohen thing is different in that it is at least about something real, not about a fantasy concocted in concert by the Democrats and the fake news media.  The problem for Trump haters is that it, like the charges against Manafort, is also about ancient history, two alleged affairs private citizen Trump supposedly had with a porn star and a centerfold more than a decade before he ran for office.

Again, the charges to which Cohen pleads are irrelevant to anything related to the Trump campaign or presidency – tax fraud, bank fraud and one charge of a campaign finance violation.  The problem with that last charge is that no money ever passed through any account in any way related to the Trump campaign.  The overly-zealous prosecutors in the case are going to try to claim that the payoffs to the porn star and centerfold were made in an effort to “influence” the 2016 election, and thus amount to a contribution in-kind to the Trump campaign.

Okayyyyyyyyy…do the Democrats and fake news media really want to go there?  Think about the possible implications of this line of reasoning for a moment.  If one accepts this logic, then basically every minute of programming that aired on CNN during 2016 would have to be classified as an illegal in-kind contribution to the Clinton campaign, not to mention 90% of the fake reporting by the rest of the fake news media.  This is billions of dollars worth of outright advocacy designed to – guess what? – influence the 2016 election.

By the same logic, every moment that Jim Acosta and April Ryan and 90% of the White House press corps spend on White House grounds should be accurately classified as opposition research for the Democrat Party and efforts to influence the 2018 mid-term and 2020 presidential elections.  Because if we’re going to be honest about this, that is all they are doing.  They are nothing more than operatives for the Democrat Party.

The other speculation is that the Cohen plea deal gives Democrats a reason to pursue impeachment should they take control of the House in November.  Again, do the Democrats really want to go there?  These are the same Democrats who steadfastly refused to condemn then-President Bill Clinton for having sex with a 22 year-old intern in the Oval Office, and then brutally bullying her to remain silent about it.  Most of them still refuse to condemn Clinton to this day, in fact.

The Democrats in 1998 couldn’t offer up a single vote in favor of impeaching Clinton when he was brought up on proven charges of obstruction of justice, perjury, lying to federal investigators, and abuse of FBI files.  Not one.  Single.  Vote.  But now they’re going to try to impeach a Republican president for the “crime” of entering into a hush money agreement over two alleged affairs from 10-12 years ago?

Without doubt, Trump’s behavior, if true, is wholly immoral and should be condemned on those grounds.  But as has been pointed out many, many times, Americans did not elect Donald Trump on the illusion he was a choir boy.  Besides, the Democrats voluntarily and unanimously surrendered any moral authority in these matters 20 years ago, and there is just no going back from that.

Despite all the media frenzy flying around today, Donald Trump will serve out this term and most likely end up being a highly successful two-term president.

The blood of Mollie Tibbets is on Congress’s hands. – Fake news media outlets all over America feverishly worked to avoid mentioning yesterday’s revelation that University of Iowa Student Mollie Tibbets was murdered by an illegal alien, because of course they did.  Doesn’t fit the narrative, after all.  One MSNBC Democrat spokesperson who nobody’s ever heard of refused to even mention Ms. Tibbets’ name, referring to her only as “some girl in Iowa…who Fox News is talking about.”

Many on the right, meanwhile, rushed in to blame Ms. Tibbets’ killing on the Democrats and their refusal to cooperate in the building of the border wall, but this is overly simplistic.  The truth is that the the current insane construct of our nation’s immigration laws has been a bipartisan enterprise that has been constructed by a series of congresses and presidents of both parties going all the way back to the 1960s.  Who can ever forget, for example, the “Gang of 8” that led the fight for a horrific comprehensive immigration reform bill in 2013?  That despicable exercise, which would have provided overarching amnesty, institutionalized open borders and turned the nation over to the Democrat Party into perpetuity,  included the very worst the U.S. Senate has to offer, including Republicans like Jeff Flake and John McCain, and Democrats like Chuck Schumer and Dick Durbin.

So you can’t just blame the Democrats for this murder and the ongoing crime spree by those living illegally in our country – the GOP establishment wing deserves all sorts of credit for it as well.  This has been a purely bipartisan exercise.

Just another day in Mueller is Seinfeld America.

That is all.

Brennan, Strzok, Clapper and our #Fakenews Nation

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

“What in the wide, wide world of sports is a-goin’ on here?” – Man, the Campaign Update goes on vacation for 10 days, and you people let all hell break loose.  Well, ok, all hell breaks loose pretty much all the time in our fake news media society these days, but the past week and 3 days seemed more active than usual.

Just for fun, let’s do a quick review of the highlights that took place while yours truly and the little wifey were minding our own business on the high seas:

Super Duper FBI Agent and aspiring spawn of Satan Peter Strzok got canned.  Yes, friends, Jeff Sessions apparently woke up from one of his 3-week naps early last week and realized that he had forgotten to hit ‘Send’ on that FIRE PETER STRZOK RIGHT FREAKING NOW! memo to FBI Director Christopher Wray that he had drafted way back in April.  Now, if he can just get around to drafting – and sending – that INDICT PETER STRZOK RIGHT FREAKING NOW! memo to John Huber, we can begin to regain some semblance of confidence that our justice system still functions to some extent.

Super Duper FBI Agent and aspiring spawn of Satan Peter Strzok got rich.  Well, ok, not exactly rich, but he did get a nice supplement to his investment fund by setting up a GoFundMe account and watching with glee as thousands of Democrats lined up to give him money, proving yet again that PT Barnum was right when he said there’s a sucker born every minute.

Speaking of the justice system, the jury in the Paul Manafort trial went into its deliberations late last week after the defense rested without calling any witnesses.  The defense believes it was able to poke enough holes in the prosecution’s case prove reasonable doubt, which may well be true given that the jury sent a note to Federal District Judget T.S. Ellis requesting him to define the term for them one more time.  Right after that happened…

The fake news media tried to doxx the Manafort jury!  Yes, friends, the very same fake news media that doesn’t want you all to think it is the enemy of the people proved beyond any doubt at all that it is indeed the enemy of the people by suing the court to obtain the names and addresses of the jury members within hours of it becoming obvious that at least some jury members were thinking about acquitting Manafort due to reasonable doubt.  Given that CNN and the New York Times were among the media outlets making the request, there can be no doubt whatsoever – reasonable or otherwise – that the names and addresses of all of the jurors would be leaked to Antifa and other violent leftist groups within moments of their being obtained.  Does anyone really believe the likes of Sarah Jeoung or Chris Cuomo – who actually endorsed Antifa on air  last week – would even give it a second thought?  Thankfully, Judge Ellis told the fake news purveyors to pound sand, perhaps because he has personally experienced numerous death threats himself and requires round-the-clock security thanks to his involvement in this trial.

John Brennan lost his security clearance.  The former CIA Director and obvious role model for the evil Dar Adal character on “Homeland” initially claimed he was being “silenced,” and then went to the fakest fake journalist he could find – MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow – to give him a reliably softball interview on national television.  During that interview, the guy who had accused the President of the United States of committing “treason” for meeting with the leader of Russia claimed he had never accused the POTUS of committing “treason.” He also told Maddow that he doesn’t “think I’m being political at all.”  Even Maddow smirked at that one.  Brennan got paid by MSNBC to do all of that, by the way.  No wonder President Trump wanted to elevate this guy’s public profile – he is the perfect foil.

James Clapper tossed John Brennan under the bus.  In a desperate bid to save his own security clearance – which he has been blatantly monetizing thanks to his contract with CNN for the last 18 months – the former Director of National Intelligence went on CNN Sunday and tossed his old colleague under the bus, saying that Brennan’s outspokenness was becoming an issue.  Remember that Clapper is also the guy who tossed Barack Hussein Obama under the bus just a few weeks ago when he admitted to CNN that all of the spying efforts on the Trump Campaign by the FBI and other intelligence agencies were instigated at Obama’s request.  Clapper is truly the king of CYA.

Keith Ellison got accused of abusing multiple women and the fake news media couldn’t be bothered to report it.  No surprise here, since Ellison is only the second-in-command at the DNC, which dictates the daily talking points to the fake news media.  Or maybe it’s the other way around.  At any rate, expecting NBC, CBS, ABC, or CNN to report on Ellison’s abuse is like expecting a wife to testify against her husband in a criminal trial.  Not gonna happen, at least not voluntarily.

The New York Times faked up another story on a slow news day.  On Saturday, the fake reporters and fake editors at the fake New York Times got bored and decided to fake up a story about how White House Counsel Don McGahn had spent 30 hours “cooperating” with Special Counsel Robert Mueller in his investigation.  This set off a clamor among the entire fake media – which basically just cuts and pastes whatever the NYTimes spews out on its pages – that lasted the rest of the weekend.  Analogies to Watergate and John Dean were ubiquitous.  The problem with the story is that it’s very old news, simply a re-wording and recycling of information that had been made public months ago by none other than President Trump himself, who had authorized McGahn’s cooperation in the Fall of 2017, in an attempt to speed Mueller’s efforts along.  And the media wonders why half of America considers it to be the enemy.

The media outlets who claim they don’t conspire against President Trump…conspired against President Trump.  No kidding, on either Tuesday or Wednesday of last week (I was on a boat having too much food and wine so the days kind of all blend together at this point) more than 300 newspapers joined together to pen editorials bashing President Trump.  They thought they were doing something special, but this is what ordinary Americans out here in Flyover Country think of as your average Tuesday or Wednesday – or Thursday or Friday or Saturday or Sunday or Monday, for that matter.

Ok, so those are just some of the highlights that took place over the last 10 days.  I’d fill you in on what the little wifey and I did on our vacation, but it mostly had to do with food and wine and seeing a couple of Broadway productions and getting on and off a big boat and this is getting a little long and I don’t want CNN or the NYTimes doxxing any of the wonderful folks we dealt with along the way.

It’s great to be back.

That is all.

Wait. Why Isn’t Rick Gates on Trial Again?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

What tipped you off, Timmy? – Apple CEO Tim Cook is worried that “humanity is being drained out of music.”  It’s not about what you think, but it should be.

Tired of all this Winning yet? – Republican Troy Balderson won the special election for Ohio’s 12th district over Democat Danny O’Connor, denying the fake news media another excuse to rev up its “Blue Wave” narrative one more time.  The race was very close, with Balderson prevailing by just 1,754 votes out of the 202,000 total votes cast.  Absurdly, the two will face off again in the regular mid-term election in just three months.  If the Democrats hope to prevail, they’ll have to clear out some more of the district’s cemeteries on Election Day.

Ok.  Now do Kevin Spacey and Harvey Weinstein and Matt Lauer. – The creeps who infest the West Hollywood city council voted Tuesday night to demand that those who manage Hollywood’s Walk of Fame to remove the star honoring Donald Trump.  This move comes after the star has been repeatedly vandalized by criminal lunatics wielding axes and hoes.  So, these Democrats do what Democrats always do and blame the inanimate object for the problem.  So.  Damn.  Predictable.

To see “nutty people,” tour the halls of the state capitol building or the West Hollywood city council. – The LA Times editorial board is all verklempt about the latest secession – or “CalExit” – proposal making the rounds in the Golden State these days.  This proposal would first have California secede from the Union, and then lop off a big chunk of the Eastern portion of the state to form an independent Native American nation.

In slamming the proposal, the Times ed board asks this burning question:  “What is it about the Golden State that makes nutty people want to mess with its geography in ill-thought-out ways?”  Hilariously, the question is posed without a hint of self-awareness or irony.

In the grand pantheon of horrible Democrat ideas, this one could be the worst yet. – Axios reports that Democrats, led by execrable Virginia Sen. Mark Warner, are circulating a raft of horrible legislative proposals they would attempt to pursue in 2019/2020 should they gain control of one or both houses of congress this November.

In keeping with their philosophy of “never let a good fake crisis go to waste,” one of the proposals would be for the federal government to essentially take over the Internet in order to keep those nasty Russians off of Facebook and Twitter.  The Axios piece details a laundry list of proposals for command-and-control regulation from the feds that reads like something that would have come right out of the Soviet Union, a classic approach from social meddlers who think they’re smarter than everyone else and should have the power to tell the rest of us how to act.

All of this in the face of the fact that, after two years of Democrat/media-promoted hysteria over “Russian meddling” in our elections, there remains no evidence whatsoever that the amateurish efforts allegedly perpetrated by Russian interests during 2016 impacted a single vote.  But the “crisis” has been generated, Robert Mueller has indicted a bunch of Russian ham sandwiches who will never stand trial, and now’s the time in the Democrat hive mind to push for a government takeover, which is how they always respond to every issue, real or imagined.

Democrats:  If they didn’t exist, no person in their right mind would even dream of making them up.

Wait.  Why isn’t this guy standing trial again? – Speaking of Robert Mueller and his gang of Clinton/Obama hacks, their star witness in the Paul Manafort trial, Manafort’s former partner Rick Gates, admitted on the witness stand yesterday that he stole millions of dollars from his boss, bought his mistress a London apartment with some of the proceeds, regularly misclassified income as “loans” in order to avoid taxes, and “probably” embezzled funds from the Trump Inauguration Committee.

Gates also admitted to lying to Mueller’s investigators in an interview this past January, a process crime for which Mueller has already obtained two guilty pleas from other subjects of his investigation.  Gates, an already admitted liar, was awarded immunity instead so that he could spill the beans on Manafort.  Mueller hoped that by taking this action, he could pressure Manafort, himself an admitted liar, to turn and spill the beans on President Trump or someone closer to him.

Instead, we get this show trial on charges for crimes that took place years before Donald Trump ever thought about running for president, with Gates’s admission to committing a crime against Trump and his inauguration committee the only thing even tangentially related to the current President of the United States of America.

Your “Justice” Department in action, folks.

Just another day in nutty people-filled 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.

That is all.

Democrat Hysteria Over Helsinki Has Failed. New Hysteria Coming Soon.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Presiding over the fakest news operation on earth turns out to be a high-stress gig. – CNN President Jeff Zucker is taking time off to have heart surgery.

If you watch The View, you should really reconsider your bad life choices. – The Democrat campaign to bully, harass and assault Trump supporters in public venues has now been extended into the realm of TV talk shows.  Appearing with the cackling shrews on The View on Thursday, Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro was harassed and bullied by the execrable Whoopi Goldberg while on air, and then assaulted by Goldberg backstage during a commercial break.  You can read all about it here.

Because when you can’t indict anybody real, you indict ham sandwiches.  It’s the DOJ way. – Our oily Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, speaking at the Aspen Institute’s annual gathering of globalist freaks Thursday, defended his and Robert Mueller’s practice of indicting Russian nationals as a way to pretend they’re actually making progress on their Democrat/media invented “Russia Collusion” fantasy.

Ignoring the fact that Mueller’s team was completely unprepared to make even a semblance of a case when one of the indicted Russian entities actually showed up voluntarily for trial back in May, Rosenstein pretended this practice is somehow crucial to our rule of law or something:  “Exposing schemes to the public is an important way to neutralize them,” he said. “The American people have a right to know if foreign governments are targeting them with propaganda.”

That much is true.  But the American people also have a right to know why this special counsel exists in the first place, documents for which Rosenstein has now stonewalled in producing for more than a year now, and whether that special counsel and his band of Clinton/Obama hacks are abusing our legal system, as the judges presiding over the cases of Michael Flynn and the Russian firm Concord Management appear to believe.

But Mueller’s corruption of the process isn’t limited to indicting ham sandwiches – far from it.  Now, he’s in the process of attempting to protect several Clinton/Obama cronies from prosecution by asking a judge to grant them “use” immunity in the case against Paul Manafort.  Fox News host Tucker Carlson confirmed on his program last night that one of those cronies is …wait for it…Tony Podesta, brother of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.

Here we should remember that the Mueller case against Manafort involves alleged crimes that supposedly took place long before Donald Trump announced his candidacy in 2015.  Tony Podesta and Manafort worked together for some Ukrainian clients way back in 2012, when some of the alleged crimes supposedly happened.

Thus, Mueller’s thought process here is that if you worked for 60-odd days for Donald Trump in 2016, you get prosecuted, but if you’re a crony of anyone named Clinton or Obama, you get use immunity.

Don’t believe me?  Another name rumored to be on Mueller’s immunity list is…wait for it…John Podesta.

If you were still laboring under the illusion that our country doesn’t have a two-tiered justice system, stop it.  Now.

This is not working out the way the Democrat/Media Axis of Propaganda wanted.  Not at all. – If you’re depressed by the heinously biased coverage of the Trump meeting with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, don’t be.  A series of new polls taken after Monday’s summit that were issued yesterday have some highly-disappointing results for liberals trying to use the meeting as a hammer against the President of the United States:

  • The new Economist/YouGov poll has Trump’s approval post-Putin Summit at 44%. The last YouGov poll released last week had him at…wait for it….43%.
  • Thursday’s daily Rasmussen Tracking survey had President Trump’s approval rating at 45%, exactly where it was on Sunday, the day before the Helsinki meeting.
  • The new Reuters/Ipsos poll has the President’s approval at 42%.  Last week’s poll from this group had it at 41%
  • A new Gallup poll asked registered voters to pick the “most important problem” facing America today from a list on which “Situation with Russia” was prominently included.  The results left Gallup stunned:  “The percentage of Americans saying ‘Situation with Russia’ is the most important problem is literally too small to represent with a number.”
  • A new Survey Monkey poll has President Trump’s approval rating sitting at 22% among registered Black voters, and 38% among registered Hispanic voters.  I don’t believe I’ve ever seen any GOP POTUS with that high a rating among Blacks, and only GW Bush rivaled that rating among Hispanics.

To be clear: If Donald Trump were to win as much as even 15% of the Black vote and 30% of the Hispanic vote in 2020, he’d win 45 states and kill the Democrat Party even deader than it already is for a generation.

So if you’ve been wondering why, starting early on Thursday, Democrats and their coordinating media agents began to slowly walk back all of their “Trump committed TREASON!!!!!” hysteria, this is why.  The Democrats never believed it was true, they thought it would poll well, it isn’t polling well, so they’re dropping it.

Expect the Axis of Propaganda to either go back to their “But the Babies!!!!!!” border hysteria, dig up a new porn star to obsess about, or invent something entirely new to keep their irrational, ignorant voter base whipped up with starting today.  Because this is all they got, and it’s only going to get worse.

Just another day in Trump Derangement Syndrome America.

Morning Joe Takes the Fake News Media to New Low With Concentration Camp Nonsense

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

“Ok, let’s see here guys, we’ve already destroyed the attorney/client privilege in the Cohen case, we’re doing our best to destroy the rules of evidence in the Concorde case, what should we destroy next?” – The obvious answer that came back from one of his evil minions to Special Counsel Robert Mueller was “Hey, let’s kill the bail system!” because that’s what he’s now doing in the case against Paul Manafort.

Let’s first note that Manafort, who served as the Trump Campaign Manager for all of 49 days, is not charged with anything even remotely related to what Mueller is supposed to be investigating.  The charges against him are for alleged crimes that took place long before Donald Trump even decided to run for office, things like bank fraud, tax evasion and failing to register as an agent of a foreign government when he lobbied for the Ukraine years ago.

By the way, that “failure to register as an agent of a foreign government” charge could be applied to probably half the lobby firms on K Street in Washington today, which includes many, many former members of congress who don’t want their efforts on behalf of the world’s unsavory regimes made a matter of public information.  So, if Manafort goes to prison for that charge, perhaps we need a special counsel appointed to just do a general roundup of people based on it.  That would be fun.

That said, all of these are crimes and if he is guilty of them, Manafort should pay his price to society.  They just should have been pursued by someone other than a Special Counsel supposedly investigating allegations of “Russia Collusion,” which is of course a fantasy.

But back to the question of bail:  Manafort had to this point been free on bail awaiting trials that frankly may never come, given the clownish behavior of Mueller and his team.  But on Friday, based on a 1 minute phone call he had with a person who may or may not be a witness in a trial that may never occur, Mueller convinced the Obama appointee judge (of course) in the case to revoke Mueller’s bail and toss him in the pokey.

I don’t really have any use for Paul Manafort, but I do value our constitutional rights.  Mueller’s ongoing assault on those rights, supported in this case by an Obama judge who has likely never bothered to read the Constitution, is of deep concern to all of us.  The precedents being set by the tactics this gang of thugs is getting away with would make Stalin proud.

There is no limit to the utter depravity of the American left. – Way back in December of 2016, as the Trump transition team was making plans for the new administration, I told you about illegal immigrant detention centers that the Obama Administration had managed in Texas and Arizona border towns for years.  I noted that liberals and the fake news media had remained studiously silent about these centers while a Democrat was in the White House, but would inevitably start referring to them as “concentration camps” once a Republican was in the office.

Well, it has taken longer than I had assumed it would, probably because every leftist lunatic in the country has been so mindlessly consumed with their Russia Collusion fantasy play, but they’ve finally gone there.  Yesterday morning, the execrable Joe Scarborough led the pack of rabid ferrets that MSNBC calls “journalists” down that path on his “Morning Joe” program, while an entire panel of fake MSNBC analysts resorted to the same absurd characterization later in the day on something called “MSNBC Live with Stephanie Ruhle.”

These comments are an absolute disgrace.  They are completely, absolutely false, they are based on abject ignorance and mindless hatred of President Trump, they demean our Homeland Security and Border Patrol personnel and Health and Human Services personnel (who actually manage the facilities) alike, and they indeed characterize our entire society as just another Nazi Germany.

The truth about these facilities is that they are very well appointed with comfortable furniture, video games, pool tables, modern bathrooms, clean beds and plenty of food.  They are there to hold illegal adults who have committed a crime against our country temporarily while awaiting their immigration hearings.  Their children are held in similarly-appointed, separate facilities while they are separated from their parents.

U.S. citizens who are arrested for committing crimes against our country are also separated from their children.  Those children who don’t have other relatives willing to take custody of them go into similar facilities initially while authorities figure out what to do with them.

No one is ever happy when children are separated from their parents, but this is what happens when parents commit crimes and are arrested for them.  When a Democrat is President, the fake news media says nothing about any of this, because this is just the normal course of business in pretty much every civilized nation.  But when a Republican is in the White House, why, America is suddenly Nazi Germany all over again.

It’s detestable, demented and depraved.  Anyone spreading this outrageous lie should be shunned from society.  A pox on all their houses.

Just another day in depraved leftists trying to destroy America.

Buckle up, Folks: “Crossfire Hurricane” Means Things Are About to Speed Up

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Some things to think about as we enter the next phase of this war against the Deep State and the Cabal within DOJ and the FBI that first tried to fix the 2016 election outcome for the Pantsuit Princess, and have spent the last 18 months attempting to bring down the duly-elected President of the United States:

  • Wednesday’s “Crossfire Hurricane” article published by the fake New York Times marks the end of the cover-up phase of this conspiracy.  The more you read that article in detail, the more you realize it has, in the effort to provide justification for the Cabal’s actions, in fact exposed pretty much every detail of the conspiracy.
  • One striking aspect of the report is that, where all the previous fake reports filed by the Times and WaPo in their efforts to help cover up for the Cabal cited only “unidentified sources”, you suddenly have people like Sally Yates, Mary McCord and some others talking on the record in an effort to cover themselves.  This never happened while the cover-up was going on.
  • We are now beginning to see selective leaks today of certain specifics contained in the report of DOJ IG Michael Horowitz, which is being circulated at DOJ and the FBI so those who are named in it have a chance to provide responses.  Those leaks are not coming from the good guys, who have kept this process utterly devoid of leaks for 17 months now.
  • The leaks are coming from the targets, in an effort get the information into the public domain so that their media support group can publish more fake articles providing justification for the cabal’s actions.
  • By the way, note that only the bad actors who remain employed at DOJ and FBI get the opportunity to read the report in advance.  Those who have already been given their walking papers – people with names like McCabe and Yates and McCord and Page and Baker and Comey and Brennan and Lynch and on and on and on – receive no such opportunity.
  • This helps explain why the only people talking on the record to the Times were people who no longer worked at those agencies.  It also makes it very likely that the leaks are coming from the bad actors still employed.  Think about it.
  • We need to also remember something key here:  While the Times article claims that the Cabal was very careful to keep its actions secret so as not to lend credibility to Trump’s claims of a rigged election, the truth is that details of what was going on were being leaked all over the damn place in real time.  The media was filled with anonymously-sourced articles detailing accusations about Carter Page, General Flynn and Paul Manafort throughout the summer and fall of 2016.  Where are we supposed to believe this information was coming from?  The answer is obvious, and that leads to the next bullet point here, which is…
  • …there are some in the fake news media who were complicit in all of this.  Reporters and editors and TV hosts who were coordinating efforts and messages and timing of articles with this effort to fix the election, and later with the effort to take down the President.  As the evidence of wrongdoing is presented in the IG report and in court cases that will follow, it will not be all that difficult for independent researchers to go back through the media record to figure out who those complicit individuals are.  This scandal does not end at the exit to the Hoover Building.
  • Finally, one of the leaks about the Horowitz report today is particularly interesting to me:  Real journalist Paul Sperry issued this tweet on Thursday afternoon:

  • If true, this clearly demonstrates the coordinated effort going on between Horowitz and his army of more than 400 investigators and Salt Lake City U.S. Attorney John Huber.  If you remember, Attorney General Jeff Sessions cleverly let it be known in an interview several weeks back that he didn’t need to create a second Special Counsel because he had had Huber and his team working in coordination with the IG since at least last October.  It is very, very likely that Huber has had at least one, and possibly multiple grand juries convened for months now, and that he will be ready to move quickly towards prosecuting the bad actors once the IG’s report has been issued.

If you think things have been moving quickly up to now, well, better buckle up, because they’re only going to move faster from here on out.

That is all.

Mueller’s Big Problem: He Keeps Drawing Judges Who Have Read the Constitution

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – There has been much cause for optimism lately as Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his evil band of Clinton/Obama hacks have repeatedly run into trouble when their cases must finally be heard in federal court.

Mueller’s people most famously had to endure a lecture from Federal Judge T.S. Ellis on May 4 when the judge lambasted them for basically lying to the court in an effort to claim their case against former Trump Campaign Manager Paul Manafort has anything to do with the Special Counsel’s charge to investigate the Democrat/Media-constructed Russia Collusion fantasy.  Their day before Judge Ellis became even worse when he demanded that they produce the memos from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein that laid out the scope of their investigation, and do so by this coming Friday.  The oily Mr. Rosenstein has fought tooth and nail to keep those memos confidential, on the specious grounds that they contain “classified” information.  Oops.

The Mueller team had another major stumble in court the very next day, when Federal Judge Dabney Friedrich denied their motion for a delay in their absurd case against the Russian firm Concord Management.  Concord is one of the 13 Russian entities that Mueller and his evil minions indicted back in February in a transparently dishonest effort to show their investigation has at least some tenuous connection to the whole Russia Collusion fantasy play.

To make matters even more Keystone Cop-ish, one of the Concord-related companies indicted by Mueller’s band of aspiring circus clowns, Concord Catering, did not even exist at the time the Mueller team claims it was engaged in social media shenanigans.  Oops.

The catch in issuing those indictments, of course, was that the Mueller minions never expected to have to prosecute any of their specious charges, because they assumed none of the accused would actually show up in a U.S. court voluntarily.  But Concord showed up, demanded the Court enforce their constitutional right to a speedy trial, and Judge Friedrich ordered the case to move forward.  Oops.

Mueller’s case against former Trump National Security Advisor General Mike Flynn is also hanging on by a thread at this point.  It has become increasingly obvious over the six months since Flynn entered his guilty plea to lying to the FBI that Mueller’s evil minions withheld exculpatory evidence that would likely clear Flynn of the charge.  The tide in this case began to turn when it was taken over by Federal Judge Emmet Sullivan, who is well-known for his disdain for prosecutors who mislead the court.  Oops.

The developments in all three of these cases clearly demonstrate the utterly dishonest nature of the Mueller “investigation.”  Mueller’s operation is not an “investigation” at all:  It is in fact the witch hunt that President Trump has repeatedly alleged it to be.  Yesterday marked the one-year anniversary of Mueller’s baseless appointment by Rosenstein, and in all that time Mueller and his ever-expanding team of witch-hunters have uncovered exactly zero evidence that anyone in the Trump Campaign or transition team colluded with any Russian to influence the 2016 election outcome.

The series of court setbacks are all very encouraging for those non-Democrats and non-fake journalists who have realized all along what a sham the entire Mueller enterprise has been.  But we all need to take a little breath here and realize that all of these encouraging developments have come about largely due to the luck of the draw.  The fact is that to this point, Mueller has suffered some very bad luck in terms of the judges who have been assigned to his cases.

Although a Clinton appointee to the federal bench, Judge Sullivan has long been well-known as a judge who forces both sides to adhere firmly to the rules of evidence and repect for the process.  The case against General Flynn appeared to be a done deal under the original judge assigned to the case, Rudolph Contreras, an Obama appointee to the federal bench.  Contreras was forced to recuse himself from the case in early December when it was publicly revealed that his is a FISA judge who likely signed off on one of the FISA warrants that gave the FBI authority to spy on the Trump Campaign in 2016.  Contreras had no problem allowing Mueller to just do as he pleased.

Judge Ellis is a Reagan appointee.  Judge Friedrich is a Trump appointee.  Both judges have, inconveniently for Mueller and his evil minions, actually read the Constitution and hold a healthy respect for it.  Had Mueller drawn Obama appointees in the Concord or Manafort cases, he’d likely not be having any problems in either case.

It’s key to note that judges are assigned to these cases on a random draw basis.  Thus, to this point, Mueller has been extremely unlucky, given that there are more Clinton and Obama appointees populating the Virginia and Washington, DC federal bench – where Mueller’s grand juries are convened – than there are Reagan, Bush and Trump appointees.

We can’t count on that luck to continue.  At some point Mueller will draw an Obama judge, and any notion of due process and constitutional protections for the defense will fly right out the window.  Just something to think about as this mess keeps moving ahead.

Just another day in let’s hope Mueller’s bad luck continues America.

That is all.

Whining, Drunks and Prostitutes – How Much Lower Will CNN go to Keep its Collusion Narrative Alive?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – We’ve all been wondering how it is that Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, the single most incompetent law enforcement officer ever put on public display, still has his job.  Perhaps we should wonder even more about Jimmy Kimmell.  Why does this clown keep getting invited back to host the Academy Awards Ceremony?  It was bad enough that the ratings for last year’s program came in at a 9-year low.  But Sunday’s 2018 version of the ceremony completely collapsed, coming in at 16% below last year’s terrible ratings, a whopping 41% down from 2014, and reaching an all-time low.  Maybe, just maybe, this year’s ratings will convince the organizers of the event to hire a host next year who is an entertainer, rather than just another social justice warrior.

Little Jimmy’s in time-out, and he doesn’t much like it. – My daughter, who is a wonderful mother, has three rules for her two precious daughters:  No whining, no whining, and noooo whining!

Poor little Jimmy Acosta, CNN’s preening fake reporter assigned to the White House, broke all three of those rules on Monday.  The man who wants to be Sam Donaldson without having to put in all that hard work or adhere to those pesky ethics isn’t getting enough attention from White House Spokesman Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and wanted to let her know about it.

After Acosta’s shouted question at Ms. Sanders as she wrapped her daily press briefing went unanswered, he tweeted “Third press briefing in a row that @PressSec did not take a question from CNN. ” before rushing to the nearest CNN camera so he could whine on-air about not being the center of attention.  This guy must have been a real handful for his mother when he was a toddler.

Sanders, as always keeping her sense of humor about the petulant bunch of nitwits she must deal with every day, responded on her own Twitter account with  “Courage isn’t taking “a question from CNN,” Jim. Courage is combat veterans Sgt. Peck and Staff Sgt. Dwyer – the two heroes at the briefing. “, which is about how you’d expect any good mom to respond to a whining 3 year-old.

So, what was the burning question to which Little Jimmy thought the world needed an answer?  “Do you expect the Justice Department to enforce all subpoenas, Sarah?”  Seriously, that was the question Acosta had shouted at her.  It’s like asking if all paint will dry or whether all Democrats and CNN reporters will lie – of course the Justice Department will enforce its subpoenas.  Why send subpoenas out if you’re not planning to enforce them?

It’s not about #courage, Jimmy, it’s about #irrelevance.  And whining – it’s about the whining.

The Nunberg Chronicles. – But Little Jimmy wasn’t the guy who made the biggest fool of himself in the nation’s capital on Monday.  No, that award has to go to former Trump campaign adviser Sam Nunberg.  Mr. Nunberg spent the entire day submitting himself to a series of progressively more incoherent and embarrassing interviews on CNN and MSNBC, as either he had more and more to drink, or some sort of chemical imbalance became progressively worse.

The main thrust of Nunberg’s ramblings began as defiance  against the abusive process being employed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is using his office to destroy numerous people’s lives, forcing them to incur huge legal bills as he vainly casts about for something to hang on President Trump.  Nunberg, who has been subpoenaed to appear before Mueller’s grand jury, repeatedly claimed he would refuse to do so, until late in the day, when he hinted that he might cooperate after all.  That was during a happy hour-timed interview with CNN’s fake host Erin Burnett, who told Nunberg during the interview that she could smell alcohol on his breath.

Nunberg denied he’d been drinking, which may be true, but no one believed him.  He might want to reconsider that denial, because when you think about it, the least damaging explanation he has available to somewhat excuse his behavior is that he had a couple of martinis over lunch and said a lot of stuff he didn’t really mean.  All other possible explanations just become progressively worse.

Back to CNN, the fakest of all the #fakenews outlets has actually sent reporters over to Thailand to interview a prostitute from Belarus who claims to have information about collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians during the 2016 campaign.  This move came after CNN spent several days referring to the woman as a “Russian prostitute”, indicating that the fakest #fakenews outlet doesn’t even know that Belarus is not, in fact, Russia.

The fake journalists at the fakest #fakenews outlet apparently consider this prostitute to be “credible” because she was once photographed with a big Russian muckety-muck who once had a meeting with former Trump campaign adviser Paul Manafort.

The truth, of course, is that CNN will resort to literally anything in order to keep its Trump/Russia “collusion” narrative alive, because that’s the deal the fakest #fakenews outlet has with the Democrat Party.  And if that means interviewing alleged drunks on-air, whining incessantly at the White House press spokesman, or sending fake reporters halfway around the world to interview prostitutes, why, that is what CNN will do.

Just another day in CNN is all fake news all the time America.

That is all.
