Ducklo Bullying Shows White House Callous Attitude Towards Women

This is how you act when you believe you’re bullet proof. – Biden Deputy Press Secretary T.J. Ducklo became the subject of a bullying scandal on Friday when it was revealed he he had threatened a Politico reporter, Tara Palmeri, when she questioned him about an affair he had been conducting with a reporter for Axios.  It seems that the White House press corps is just a swirling soap opera of sexual shenanigans.

You didn’t have to worry about these things during the Trump administration, since everyone hated one another. But in a Democrat administration, they’re all trying to get each other into bed. And Ducklo thinks he can get away with this kind of behavior because his bosses will have his back.

Sadly, he’s pretty much right, given that his immediate boss, Jen Psaki circled back to him with just a one-week suspension.

From the story at Vanity Fair:

AWhite House official tried to quash a story about his relationship with a reporter by issuing threats and using derogatory language to another reporter pursuing it, according to two sources familiar with the incident. In a sympathetic profile Monday, People revealed that White House Deputy Press Secretary TJ Ducklo is dating Axios political reporter Alexi McCammond, who covered the Joe Biden campaign. But behind the scenes, Ducklo had previously lashed out at Politico reporter Tara Palmeri, who was reporting the story, exhibiting behavior that led to tense meetings between the Washington news outlet’s editors and senior White House officials.

After Vanity Fair published this account, the White House announced that Ducklo would be suspended for one week.

The confrontation began on Inauguration Day, January 20, after Palmeri, a coauthor of Politico’s Playbook, contacted McCammond for comment while one of her male colleagues left a message for Ducklo, according to the sources. Ducklo subsequently called a Playbook editor to object to the story, but was told to call the Playbook reporters with his concerns. But instead of calling the male reporter who initially contacted him, Ducklo tried to intimidate Palmeri by phone in an effort to kill the story. “I will destroy you,” Ducklo told her, according to the sources, adding that he would ruin her reputation if she published it.

During the off-the-record call, Ducklo made derogatory and misogynistic comments, accusing Palmeri of only reporting on his relationship—which, due to the ethics questions that factor into the relationship between a journalist and White House official, falls under the purview of her reporting beat—because she was “jealous” that an unidentified man in the past had “wanted to fuck” McCammond “and not you.” Ducklo also accused Palmeri of being “jealous” of his relationship with McCammond. (Palmeri had no prior relationship or communication with McCammond before calling her to report on the Playbook item, which was a story that she was assigned and had not independently pursued.)

[End]

So, the guy gets a one-week suspension without pay from the White House for the act of bullying and threatening a female reporter, an infraction for which he’d be walked out of the building permanently by security in the real world. But hey, these are 21st century leftists who don’t really give a damn about women’s rights, as evidenced on their policies that discriminate against actual women in favor of men who “identify” as girls.

For more background on Mr. Ducklo, check out this story from the Washington Free Beacon:

Here’s an excerpt from the story:

Ducklo’s misogynistic outburst is even more problematic considering his history of employment. His role as Biden’s deputy press secretary is not the first time Ducklo has flacked for someone accused of sexual assault.

For example, Ducklo was the senior communications director for NBC News between 2018 and 2019, when the network was struggling to contain the fallout from the numerous sexual assault allegations leveled against disgraced daytime host Matt Lauer. Journalist Ronan Farrow has accused senior NBC News executives of turning a blind eye to Lauer’s predatory behavior and of actively thwarting his efforts to report on disgraced Democratic donor Harvey Weinstein’s history of misconduct.

Ducklo may or may not have interacted with Weinstein when he did communications for the Motion Picture Association of America from 2011 to 2014. He definitely hung out with the group’s chairman, former senator Chris Dodd (D., Conn.), who is best known for making a “waitress sandwich” with the late Ted Kennedy, among other forms of disreputable behavior toward women.

Dodd, who served on Biden’s vice presidential selection committee in 2020, was exceedingly reluctant to weigh in on the (in some cases criminal) allegations against Weinstein, whom he called a “friend” who was “very helpful to me as a candidate for Congress and as a senator over the years.” Anita Dunn, one of Ducklo’s colleagues in the Biden White House, went so far as to provide Weinstein with “damage control advice” as the disgraced producer sought to avoid being convicted on rape charges.

Joe Manchin: The Dreamy Prom Date Who Doesn’t Show Up

Geez, you mean the Republican version of John McCain wasn’t bad enough? – The reliable leftists at Politico have a story out this morning in which they portray West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin as the “Democrat version of John McCain.”

Hooboy, spare us that fate, please.

The basic thesis of the piece is that Manchin is a “conservative throwback” to a past generation of Democrats, and a guy who regularly “speaks his mind” and votes against his own party.

Here’s an excerpt:

The West Virginia senator has become the central character in Democrats’ control of Washington, a conservative throwback who speaks his mind and is maddeningly frustrating to liberals. He sided with his party to give them a critical vote toward approving President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion coronavirus stimulus plan, but is already vowing to cut back Democrats’ dreams of a $15 minimum wage and limit who gets direct checks.

“He’s kind of the Democratic version of John McCain,” said Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.). “I say that partially in jest. But partially it’s true: Joe’s a hard guy to figure out how to lead. You know? He dances to his own music.”

Like McCain, the moonshine-swigging former quarterback isn’t afraid to let his colleagues know where he stands on a given day, either in the hallways of the Capitol or on cable news airwaves. Manchin often publicly discusses how he’s struggling with issues or tough votes. In a nod to his state, he lives on a boat while in D.C. named “Almost Heaven.”

[End]

But wait: Is this really true? Oh, Manchin certainly talks a good game, as long as Chuck Schumer isn’t hanging around to bully him. But does he actually follow through with the votes when it comes right down to truly being a McCain-style “maverick”?

Not really, no. Hell, just re-read the first paragraph of that excerpt: “The West Virginia senator has become the central character in Democrats’ control of Washington, a conservative throwback who speaks his mind and is maddeningly frustrating to liberals. He sided with his party to give them a critical vote toward approving President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion coronavirus stimulus plan, but is already vowing to cut back Democrats’ dreams of a $15 minimum wage and limit who gets direct checks.” [emphasis added]

What does that tell you? Manchin talked a good game about the need to control absurd wasteful spending that permeates that bill, but then when it came time to cast a vote, he was bullied by Schumer into supporting it. That’s not anything like McCain, who had no problem siding with the Democrats whenever it fit his personal political agenda, advanced his own personal interests, and got him a 15-minute appearance with Chris Matthews on MSNBC’s “Hardball.”

That’s not to say Manchin isn’t like McCain in some respects. Witness this two-paragraph passage from the story:

“Joe loves to be in the middle of the action. And if you’re unsure about what he’s thinking in that moment, just turn on any TV set and there he is,” said Sen. Shelley Moore Capito, Manchin’s Republican counterpart from West Virginia.

Making known his dissension from Democratic Party orthodoxy is essential to Manchin’s political survival in a state former President Donald Trump won twice, by roughly 40 points. And though he has long sought to be an essential Senate moderate, he has found mostly frustration during his 10 years as a senator, eventually declaring of the hallowed chamber: “This place sucks.”

[End]

Yes, truly, the most dangerous place in Washington, DC for the final 20 years of his life was to be standing anywhere between John McCain and a TV camera. Today, that is most definitely true of Manchin, who is not even a little bit shy about standing before reporters and talking about his intentions of opposing the Democrat orthodoxy on an array of key issues. As the Politico writers point out, he knows he has to talk a good game to at least provide the appearance of moderation to the voters back home.

But again, when it comes down to actual vote-casting time, the only votes that he is allowed by Schumer to cast against the interests of the Democrat party are those in which he would not be the deciding vote, and thus do not matter.

So, if you’re one of the likely millions of conservatives who are currently hanging their hats on the prospect of good ol’ Joe Manchin killing Democrat wet dreams like repealing the filibuster rule or packing the Supreme Court, you are most likely going to be in for the letdown of your life when those matters actually come up for votes in the senate. Because the truth about Joe Manchin is that he is like McCain only in the sense that he craves attention and says things against his party’s orthodoxy when they serve his personal political agenda and get him a segment or two on MSNBC or CNN.

But when it comes down to sucking it up and casting the votes that would actually make a huge difference for the country, Manchin has always been and will always be useless.

Don’t get all dressed up waiting for Joe Manchin to be your hero, because he is the proverbial dreamy prom date who doesn’t show up.

That is all.

Friday News Roundup: Guard Troops Ousted From Capitol as Biden Consolidates Power

Better get while the getting’s good. – If you plan to take one final trip before most travel in this country is banned by the federal government, you should take that trip very soon. Like this weekend.

China Joe Potato Head Biden, the DC Swamp’s temporary designated sock puppet in the White House, issued a series of 10 executive orders late Thursday that are designed to basically weaponize the entirety of the U.S. government, including the military, to use the the viral gift from China as a justification to cement the Swamp’s looming police state into place. That police state was previewed for us all in the days leading up to January 20, with 26,000 National Guard personnel blockading streets and checking papers to ensure that anyone traveling in and out of the District of Columbia was an approved part of the ruling class. The result was the first inauguration in American history attended in person only by the Swamp’s elite.

This is the Swamp’s vision for the future of America, and COVID-19, given to us by China, will be the vehicle for getting us there. The guys at The Conservative Treehouse have a great summation of how each of these ten orders play into the facilitation of this goal. I highly commend it to you for today’s reading.

Thanks for your service, now get the hell out of here. – In case you labor under the illusion that the Swamp rats, skunks and snakes suddenly have developed a love and respect for the military they will use to enforce their COVID police state, well, think again.

The very, very swampy website Politico, of all places, reports this morning about thousands of National Guardsmen being forced by the ruling class they served loyally for the last 10 days to vacate the very Capitol Building they were ostensibly tasked to protect. They were banished to a corner of a parking garage, where they were to be forced to take their rest breaks for as long as their fake protection duty continues.

But after a public outcry about the brutish move, the politicians relented and allowed them back into the Capitol Building, where there are actually restrooms for them to use.

Here’s an excerpt from that report at Politico:

Thousands of National Guardsmen were allowed back into the Capitol Thursday night, hours after U.S. Capitol Police officials ordered them to vacate the facilities, sending them outdoors or to nearby parking garages after two weeks pulling security duty after the deadly riot on Jan. 6.

One unit, which had been resting in the Dirksen Senate Office building, was abruptly told to vacate the facility on Thursday, according to one Guardsman. The group was forced to rest in a nearby parking garage without internet reception, with just one electrical outlet, and one bathroom with two stalls for 5,000 troops, the person said. Temperatures in Washington were in the low 40s by nightfall.

“Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service. Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed,” the Guardsman said.

National Guard

All National Guard troops were told to vacate the Capitol and nearby congressional buildings on Thursday, and to set up mobile command centers outside or in nearby hotels, another Guardsman confirmed. They were told to take their rest breaks during their 12-hour shifts outside and in parking garages, the person said.

Top lawmakers from both parties took to Twitter to decry the decision and call for answers after POLITICO first reported the news Thursday night, with some even offering their offices to be used as rest areas. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) tweeted: “If this is true, it’s outrageous. I will get to the bottom of this.” And Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) noted that the Capitol complex remains closed to members of the public, “so there’s plenty of room for troops to take a break in them.”

[End]

You just could never make the utter depravity of these Swampers up if it wasn’t already on display for our observation every damn day.

Not in the 28 states where Dominion Voting Systems machines and software are in use, Senator. – Bernie Sanders is worried, probably because his state of Vermont hasn’t contracted with Dominion Systems yet. On Thursday, he warned Democrats that they would be wiped out in the 2020 mid-term elections if they fail to force through their radical agenda to secure their police state in place.

Here’s an excerpt from a DailyWire story:

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) warned the Democrat Party this week that they are going to get decimated in the midterms if they do not deliver significant results for the American people in the coming months.

“Given all that we face, now is not the time to think small. It is time to think big, very big,” Sanders, a twice-failed presidential candidate, said last night, according to remarks recorded by McClatchy reporter Francesca Chambers. “With Joe Biden as president and Democrats controlling the House and Senate for the first time since 2010, we will be judged on what we deliver for the American people in their time of need. The people want action, not excuses.”

“And let me be very clear. I have zero doubt that unless we significantly improve the lives of the American people this year, Democrats will get wiped out in the 2022 midterm elections,” continued Sanders. “That is what happened when Democrats had the House, the Senate and the presidency under Bill Clinton in 1994 and that is what happened under Barack Obama in 2010.”

“Politicians and media focus a great deal on drama, personality and conflict,” he concluded. “That’s how they define politics. That is not my view. Politics is nothing more complicated than delivering policy that positively impacts the lives of working families.”

[End]

Yes, truly, nothing impacts the lives of working families like having their jobs eliminated and small businesses destroyed by the COVID-related edicts of Democrat governors around the country and having every federal government agency weaponized against them.

Sanders would be absolutely right here if America still possessed a real system of free and fair elections, but as we saw on November 3 and the weeks after Election Day, that system no longer exists in the many states that use Dominion Systems to manipulate their voting process. Given that 28 states now use those machines and software, it is obvious that the only reason why Republicans would ever again gain a majority in either house of congress would be if the Swamp felt it needed to maintain a façade for the public to consume.

Plus, now that the Democan and Republicrat UniParty model for congress once again reigns on Capitol Hill, it really doesn’t much matter which party is in “power” anyway. The power is held by the ruling class in the Swamp, and that ruling class will determine the direction of federal policy.

After all, that is how fascist, one-party governance works.

George Orwell was right: He just got the year wrong.

Saturday News Roundup: The True Meaning of Coyote and the Media Starts Hedging its Election Bets

When most of us hear the term “coyote” used in the context of illegal immigration across our southern border with Mexico, we think about human traffickers who extort huge amounts of money from poor Mexicans and other Latin Americans to smuggle them across the border.

As it turns out, all of the blue-check media wonders on Twitter who have spent the last five years sagely pontificating about the evils of limiting illegal immigration think the term means this:

The Coyote Kid - Imgflip

No, I’m not kidding. When President Trump made a negative reference to Coyotes and their human trafficking efforts – during which an extremely high percentage of female travelers are raped – media blue check wonders like Maggie Haberman reacted with outrage, thinking that the President was either referring to the parents of children or to actual coyotes. I swear I do not make this stuff up.

Here’s Tucker Carlson having a great old time ridiculing these morons on his show last night:

Thus we see that the very people who have been lecturing the rest of America about illegal immigration for all these years are in fact the rank ignoramuses we always suspected they must be in order to express such stupid opinions on the subject.

Good to know.

Speaking of the corrupt national news media, here’s an actual shot from a Biden Crime Family strategy meeting:

Ok, that’s just a meme, but it might as well be real.

And speaking of illegal immigration, take a gander at these numbers. – DHS Chief Chad Wolf reported this week that the Trump Administration has made incredible strides in halting the flow of illegal immigrants across our southern border, but warns that a new surge of illegals is building.

From a report at Breitbart since the rest of the media is blacking out the story:

President Donald Trump slashed the inflow of southern migrants from 400,000 in 2019 to just 14,000 in 2020, according to acting homeland security chief Chad Wolf.

The coronavirus crash is creating a new surge of migrants up to the U.S. border, Wolf warned in his October 21 speech. “Should our critics be successful and repeal the [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] CDC order, we would face an unimaginable public health crisis,” Wolf said in a Phoenix, Arizona, speech, adding:

The only reason today’s crossings have not reached a crisis level is because of the policies and procedures the Department has put in place during the past four years. If these critical tools are removed or overturned, then the Department—and you, our frontline partners—would be imperiled by another immigration crisis.

 

Wolf described the administration’s huge and successful efforts to curb the southern migration into U.S. blue-collar workplaces. Prior Presidents did little or nothing, but Trump’s hard-fought upgrades have helped push up wages and opportunities for tens of millions of Americans — including blue-collar blacks and Latinos. Trump’s effort also protected many millions of Americans from losing their jobs amid relentless Wall Street pressure for corporate cost-cutting.

“In perhaps no area did the Washington special interests try harder to stop us than on my policy of pro-American immigration,” Trump said in his August 28 acceptance speech.

Wolf also touted the agency’s efforts to start shielding all Americans from the trillion-dollar economic threat caused by the legal and illegal migration of white-collar workers.

That’s a stunning success any way you look at it.

What is it with these Democrat politicians and dressing up as despicable historic figures for costume parties? – Yesterday, Patrick Howley revealed a high school annual photo of Democrat Arizona Senate candidate Mark Kelly dressed up as Adolph Hitler at some costume party:

What is up with this, seriously? It is as if every damn Democrat politician in America spent his or her youth longing for the days of the KKK and Nazi Germany. We all make mistakes in our misspent youths – that’s just part of growing up – but it seems that the current generation of Democrat politicians had a very ugly recurring theme running running through their culture back in the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s.

Kelly of course denies the person in the photo is him, but no one really believes him, mainly because the person in the photo is quite obviously a young Mark Kelly. Same jawline, same ears, same nose, same mouth, same body posture, etc.

The unearthing of this photo comes at a very inopportune time as he is now slightly trailing incumbent Republican Martha McSally in the most recent polls taken in the race. Oof.

Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.

Don’t look now, but the leftwing media and pundits are now starting the process of hedging their bets. – After months of pretending that Joe Biden was about to win the election in a landslide, the corrupt news media and pundits like Nate Silver have started the process of hedging their bets so they can claim to have been “right” when President Trump ends up winning a handy re-election.

Here’s Nate Silver, suddenly setting up a strawman scenario to explain why he completely whiffed on accurately projecting this election, just as he did in 2016:

Oh. You don’t sayyyyyyy. Now, when he is brought on MSNBC on Election Night to explain how he missed the Trump comeback, Silver will be able to point to this tweet and say, “hey, I warned you guys about this 11 days ago!”

Hilarious.

Here’s what Politico put out on Friday:

Here’s an excerpt:

Whether he is defeated in 11 days or leaves office in four years, Trump and Trumpism will still be with us, for decades to come.

The most obvious sign of that is the Senate’s all but certain confirmation Monday of Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court — Trump’s third justice.

But it’s way more than a 6-3 majority on the Supreme Court. Democrats complain about the lasting effects of ignoring climate change for four years. They say the nation’s image abroad has eroded, as has confidence in democracy at home. For the duration of his presidency, Trump has insisted elections are “rigged.” No surprise, many voters aren’t confident that American elections are conducted in a fair and equal way.

After watching the chaotic presidential debate three weeks ago, the teenage son of Ken Martin, the chairman of Minnesota’s Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party, asked Martin how he could stomach a life in politics, his chosen profession.

“It’s just sad, sad all around,” Martin said. “We’re going to be living with Donald Trump’s impact on politics for the next couple of generations.” He went on to say: “My concern here, win or lose, is that we have essentially changed the norms of politics to a place where you don’t have civil discourse anymore. The idea of working together just becomes so far off in the distance that how does anything get done in government anymore?”

For Democrats who feel like they are on the cusp of victory in this election, there is a sense of grief for what they have already lost.

It’s 2016 all over again, folks. These people are utterly and completely incapable of learning. They had four full years to do some research and work to get to know who Trump supporters really are and try to gain an understanding of why he creates such an incredible level of loyalty out here in Flyover Country, and chose to just lazily spend those years vilifying us instead.

They can all feel what’s coming now, but cannot ever bring themselves to admit they might have been wrong. So, they’ll all spend the next 10 days putting out bet-hedging pieces like this one and issuing fake polls showing Trump “closing the gap” that never really existed and all the other face-saving tactics in which they engaged in the leadup to Election Day 2016. Having set themselves up with this false sense of security, it’s too late now to do anything but try to save some shred of dignity and credibility to which they can desperately cling when the world comes crashing down around them one more time.

Glorious.

Friday News Roundup: COVID Fraud in Texas, Hackery From Politico, and the DNC Server Fiction Endures

It’s Friday, thank God, and we’re going to start this News Roundup with a couple of the funniest, most spot-on videos making the rounds of the Twitters this week.

First, this bit of absolute genius from @BennyJohnson:

And this one from @realpowertie wins the Internet both now and forever more:

Ok, enough of these shenanigans. Let’s move on to some actual news to round up…

This story didn’t get much notice yesterday, but the headline just irritates the hell out of me. – According to a British Intelligence report, the same group of Russians who supposedly “hacked the DNC” in 2016 attempted to steal COVID-19 data from the U.S. and its allies.

From a report at the Daily Caller, which quotes a Reuters report:

Russian government-backed hacking group reportedly attempted to steal research on coronavirus vaccines from the United States and its closest allies, according to a joint report from the U.S., Britain, and Canada released Thursday.

The report, published primarily through Britain’s National Cyber Security Center (NCSC), alleges the group APT29 or ‘Cozy Bear’ was responsible for attempting to break into academic and pharmaceutical institutions for information on COVID-19 vaccines and treatments, according to Reuters. ‘Cozy Bear’ is reportedly the same hacking group widely accused of breaching the Democratic Party ahead of the 2016 presidential election. Russia is the second country the U.S. has accused of attempting to steal coronavirus research, having named China earlier this spring.

“While others pursue their selfish interests with reckless behavior, the U.K. and its allies are getting on with the hard work of finding a vaccine and protecting global health,” British Foreign Minister Dominic Raab said in a statement.

[End]

To be clear, there is not a single shred of actual evidence in the public record that supports the notion that any Russian “group” in fact “hacked” the DNC’s email server. Remember, the FBI just took the DNC’s word for that. Comey and McCabe just allowed the DNC to contract with a private security firm called “Crowdstrike” to audit its server, and that firm – which was later implicated in efforts by the Ukrainian government to influence the 2016 election in favor of the Pantsuit Princes – produced a report to the FBI which Comey and McCabe then treated as gospel.

There is, however, evidence on the public record that the DNC’s emails were in fact downloaded by a DNC employee – most likely Seth Rich who ended up murdered on a vacant street in the wee hours of the morning – onto a memory stick which was then passed on to WikiLeaks.

With all due respect to the folks at the Daily Caller, this is an incredibly misleading headline and article that should not have been published by any reputable news outlets without gobs of asterisks and clarifications. This is how Soviet-style disinformation pushed by the Democrats ends up being perpetuated by our national media.

In case you missed it… – This happened in Texas this week:

In answer to Mr. Eagar’s question: Yes, this same thing fraudulent reporting of COVID-19 “cases” is happening all over Texas. It is in fact the practice being encouraged by state and federal officials here and in other states, and it is the main reason why the numbers of cases is so wildly overstated.

It was good of Mr. Eagar to stumble across the truth like this, but you can be sure he dropped the subject very quickly, since this bit of information definitely does not conform to the official media/Democrat narrative.

Speaking of misleading reports, check out this one from the corrupt Democrat toadies at Politico. – Politico has a major report out detailing how the evil Orange Man in the White House is trying to put people into high positions at the Pentagon who are actually – gasp! – loyal to him and his agenda.

From the slimy report:

The White House is taking advantage of a loophole to install loyalists to President Donald Trump in acting senior roles at the Pentagon, effectively skirting the Senate confirmation process.

While the number of vacancies isn’t new — one-third of the Defense Department’s 60 Senate-confirmed positions are filled on a temporary basis — the White House in recent months has been sending over people to fill open spots, as opposed to the more traditional method of tapping people within the Pentagon.

The White House on Monday announced that it was assigning Michael Kratsios, a 33-year-old White House chief technology officer, as the head of research and engineering for the entire DoD. Kratsios, who has a bachelor’s degree in political science, is replacing Michael Griffin, a former NASA administrator with a Ph.D. in aerospace engineering.

The administration has also discussed installing Anthony Tata, the controversial Fox News regular who has been nominated to be the Pentagon’s top policy official, in a different senior DoD role on an acting basis, according to an official familiar with the discussions. The move would head off what is expected to be a bruising confirmation hearing focused on now-deleted Islamophobic tweets.

Experts and Democratic lawmakers alike decried the campaign to root out those seen as disloyal and replace them with Trump acolytes, some of whom are underqualified. They worry that a climate that values loyalty over expertise scares away the best prospects and injects politics into an organization that tries to operate above partisanship.

[End]

To be clear: This “loophole,” as the hacks at Politico describe it, is actually a longstanding feature of law that has been used by every U.S. president for time immemorial. In recent history, it has been used to greatest extent by presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self.

Let’s all remember that those two most recent Democrat presidents didn’t even both putting such acting officials at the Pentagon and in other agencies. Instead, they made copious use of creating new “Czar” jobs that exercised the same kinds of oversight and authorities from the damn White House itself, so that they could be more easily controlled. Doing this also relieved many of these “Czars” from having to go through Pentagon background checks, which many of them would not have been able to pass.

But hey, this is just one more example of your corrupt, fake news media in action, courtesy of the Democrat activists at Politico.

That is all.

Democrats Panic Over Coming Good Economic News

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II

This tells you all you need to know about the Democrat Party and its hatred for Main Street America. A new story at Politico today details a growing sense of panic among leaders in the Democrat Party over the prospect that the U.S. economy might actually – gasp! – recover in the months leading up to the November election.

You seriously could never make this stuff up.

From the Politico story:

In early April, Jason Furman, a top economist in the Obama administration and now a professor at Harvard, was speaking via Zoom to a large bipartisan group of top officials from both parties. The economy had just been shut down, unemployment was spiking, and some policymakers were predicting an era worse than the Great Depression. The economic carnage seemed likely to doom President Donald Trump’s chances at reelection.

Furman, tapped to give the opening presentation, looked into his screen of poorly lit boxes of frightened wonks and made a startling claim.

The former cabinet secretaries and Federal Reserve chairs in the Zoom boxes were confused, though some of the Republicans may have been newly relieved and some of the Democrats suddenly concerned.

Everyone looked puzzled and thought I had misspoken,” Furman said in an interview. Instead of forecasting a prolonged depression-level economic catastrophe, Furman laid out a detailed case for why the months preceding the November election could offer Trump the chance to brag — truthfully — about the most explosive monthly employment numbers and GDP growth ever.

Furman’s counterintuitive pitch has caused some Democrats, especially Obama alumni, around Washington to panic.This is my big worry,” said a former Obama White House official who is still close to the former president. Asked about the level of concern among top party officials, he said, “It’s high — high, high, high, high.”

[End]

Any questions?

In case you need the Cliff’s Notes of that passage, here it is in one simple sentence:

Democrats are in a panic over the prospect that the U.S. economy will rapidly recover from the Wuhan Virus pandemic.

That’s not coming from some conservative journal like the American Spectator or Townhall.com. It’s not a conspiracy theory being tossed around on Twitter. It’s a major report from one of the most reliably-liberal rags in the nation’s capital.

And the story just gets better. Check this out:

One progressive Democratic operative pointed out that recent polling, taken during the nadir of the crisis, shows Biden is struggling to best Trump on who is more trusted to handle the economy. “Trump beats Biden on the economy even right now!” he said. “This is going to be extremely difficult no matter what. It’s existential that we figure it out. In any of these economic scenarios Democrats are going to have to win the argument that our public health and economy are much worse off because of Donald Trump’s failure of leadership.”

The former Obama White House official said, “Even today when we are at over 20 million unemployed Trump gets high marks on the economy, so I can’t imagine what it looks like when things go in the other direction. I don’t think this is a challenge for the Biden campaign. This is the challenge for the Biden campaign. If they can’t figure this out they should all just go home.

[End]

Hilarious.

And here’s what makes this panic even more perversely enjoyable to watch: With their failing strategy of trying to prolong the economic shut-downs in blue states for as long as possible, thuggish Democrat governors and mayors are in reality creating a more favorable third quarter situation for the economy and thus for President Trump.

Think about it: if the Gretchen Whitmers and Gavin Newsoms and J.B. Pritzkers and Kate Browns were doing the right thing for their states and rapidly reopening now, during the second quarter, they would have the effect of dampening the economic recovery numbers we will likely see during Q3. They would have been better off politically by creating as much economic re-growth as possible while the election was still months away.

But because they have continued to dither with their citizens’ lives and livelihoods for purely political reasons over the past month, the U.S. has now become much more likely to see explosive economic re-growth take place during August through October, with the election just around the corner.

Thus, the Democrat Party, through its own brutish mendacity, has now dug itself a deep hole from which recovery will be near-impossible.

All you need to know about these people is that a robust U.S. economic recovery is literally their biggest current political fright scenario.

If this surprises you, you need to pay closer attention.

That is all.

The Tara Reade Story Keeps Closing in on Hidin’ Joe Biden

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

“Joe Biden isn’t sheltering in place in his basement bunker because of the pandemic, he’s hiding from Tara Reade.” – Don Trump, Jr. tweeted that particular bit of truth Friday night after a new video and accompanying media reports had surfaced providing additional contemporaneous substantiation for the allegation by Tara Reade, a staffer for then-Senator Joe Biden in the early 1990s, that China Joe not only sexually harassed her repeatedly, but at one point also penetrated her with one of his long, spindly fingers.

Corrupt media outlets like the Washington Post and the New York Times have done their best to provide cover for Biden – the story has, a full month after Reade resurfaced with her allegations, still not appeared in any form on CNN’s air or website – but the thing just keeps gaining legs regardless. On Friday evening, a video clip surfaced – first reported by The Intercept – of Read’s mother calling in to a 1993 episode of CNN’s own Larry King Show to complain about Biden’s horrific treatment of her daughter and the fact that she was fired for attempting to report the matter.

Here’s the clip:

Interestingly, the very leftwing Politico has taken up reporting on the matter in recent weeks, which will no doubt mean its executives will be taken off the invite list for future dinner parties at Jeff Zucker’s home. Here is how Politico summarized the call in its report this morning:

As first reported by the Intercept, an unnamed woman from San Luis Obispo, California, called into King’s show and said, “I’m wondering what a staffer would do besides go to the press in Washington? My daughter has just left there, after working for a prominent senator, and could not get through with her problems at all, and the only thing she could have done was go to the press, and she chose not to do it out of respect for him.”

Reade confirmed to POLITICO it was her mother’s voice.

King asked the woman, “She had a story to tell but, out of respect for the person she worked for, she didn’t tell it?”

The caller replied, “That’s true.”

In March, Reade accused Biden of digitally penetrating her in 1993 without her consent. Last year, she told reporters that Biden inappropriately touched her at the time, including on her neck and shoulder, but did not talk about an alleged assault.

[End]

As I wrote last month, the Wuhan Virus pandemic has been a stroke of great good fortune for China Joe. It has enabled his handlers to maintain their strategy of “hidin’ Biden,” keeping the obviously impaired candidate cooped up in his basement and away from any uncontrolled interactions with the public or the press. Biden’s shut-in status has also given the Democrat operatives at all the major media outlets the rationale they love to have to basically ignore any inconvenient news stories related to the creepy presumptive Democrat nominee on the excuse that there is too much bigger news to deal with.

Even with those excuses, though, the liberals at Politico have chosen to file multiple reports on this story and continue to pursue it. On Thursday, for example, Politico published a report detailing the rank hypocrisy on the matter displayed by Alyssa Milano and other leaders of the #MeToo movement. Turns out that we must “believe all women” unless the woman in question is leveling a very believable allegation at a prominent Democrat. But of course, that has been a consistent feature of the “women’s movement” for half a century now.

This continuing focus on the story is commendable because it means that Politico’s reporters are destined to become social outcasts among their utterly corrupt and worthless peer group so long as the publication continues to focus scrutiny on the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator. It’s a breach of corrupt media protocol that exposes the other leftist outlets as the rank hypocrites and frauds they truly are.

So, kudos are due to Ms. Reade for having the courage to do everything she can to warn America about the real Joe Biden, and to the editors and reporters at Politico for defying peer pressure to continue reporting on the story.

That is all.

Society Must Find a Way to Hold the Corrupt Media Accountable (Updated)

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

One of the most frustrating aspects of living in the time of Trump is the utterly corrupt nature of 98% of our national news media, and the inability – or outright refusal – of anyone in a position of authority to hold these miscreants accountable for their misdeeds against our society.

Journalism as a profession is pretty much dead in America today, as the corporate-owned media outlets have abandoned all pretense of objectivity and discarded anything resembling what one used to refer to as journalistic ethics in a mad rush to attract clicks to failing websites  and help bring down a President of the United States of whom they do not approve. We live in a situation today in which it has become impossible to trust anything that goes out over the air on cable and broadcast TV networks, or is printed in the pages of the New York Times, Washington Post or the nation’s other big city newspapers.

With the American political left – which essentially owns the country’s journalism schools – having long ago discarded the entire concept of objective truth, citizens are left to fend for themselves in trying to sift through wave after wave of rank disinformation and political narratives in their daily quest to figure out what is really going on. When this happens in the context of elections, it corrupts our political process. When it happens in the context of a national emergency – as it is today – it can costs human lives.

In either event, the absence of a real, working and accountable media establishment serving its intended role as the public’s watchdog represents a true existential threat to our ability to continue to exist as a free society. If we cannot find some way to hold these people to account for their intentional acts to misinform the public, then it’s just a matter of time before the whole thing implodes.

Let’s look at a couple of examples of corrupt journalists engaging in intentional efforts to misinform the public on Monday. First, there is this from Jack Shafer, a corrupt reporter from the reliably leftwing “news” site, Politico:

So, Jerome Adams is an American anesthesiologist and a vice admiral in the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps who currently serves as the Surgeon General of the United States:

Dr. Jerome Adams on coronavirus: Preparedness over panic, facts over fear

Brett Giroir is a four-star admiral in the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, who currently serves as the Assistant Secretary for Health under the Trump administration.

Deborah Birx is an American physician and diplomat who serves as the coronavirus response coordinator for the White House Coronavirus Task Force.” Birx has served as Ambassador-at-Large and United States Global AIDS Coordinator since 2014.

Politico Reporter Takes Cheap Shots at the Outfits of Coronavirus Task Force | News Thud

Ms. Birx is widely hailed as one of the foremost experts in dealing with outbreaks of communicable diseases on the face of the earth. The qualifications and level of respect deserved by all three of these experts in their fields are obvious to anyone with a smidgen of a brain and personal integrity. But we are not talking about such a person here – we’re talking about a corrupt journalist, a guy who is employed by the similarly corrupt jackasses who own and run Politico.

Mr. Shafer’s tweets are obviously a malicious effort to smear these three experts and, more importantly from his perspective, minimize and reduce public confidence in their expertise and ability to deal with the coronavirus crisis. Think of it: This clown just reduced Ms. Birx’s entire career down to a snarky fashion statement.

If Michelle Obama had been wearing that exact same outfit, Shafer would have no doubt been blown away by how, like, totes awesome she looks or something. You know?

And if a conservative reporter working for Fox News had made such a snarky remark about the former First Lady he would have been pilloried by all the corrupt leftist journalists who hang out and snark on Twitter 24 hours a day. But because Shafer is a liberal who works for a reliably Democrat-shilling website, you can hear the crickets chirping.

Then there was this from Mara Gay, a member of the New York Times editorial board:

Well, golly, if the New York Times really did have a recording of that call, then Ms. Gay surely heard the rest of the President’s statement to the governors, which was:

“We will be backing you, but try getting it yourselves. Point of sales, much better, much more direct if you can get it yourself.”

Ms. Gay, incidentally, is the same nitwit who, in an appearance with Brian Williams on MSNBC last week, claimed that if Mike Bloomberg had taken the $500 million that he spent on TV ads and just distributed it to the American people, he could have given all of us “a million dollars.” The actual number, of course, is $1.53. This is the level of abject stupidity the New York Times allows onto its editorial board. And let’s be honest, the very fact that Brian Williams, a proven pathological liar, still has a job in the media proves the profession has zero accountability.

But in this instance, Ms. Gay goes from mere stupidity to outright mendacity, intentionally abbreviating the perfectly good advice the President conveyed to the nation’s governors in a blatant effort to convince her mindless Twitter followers that he is instead an uncaring beast. Again, if anyone on the Board at Fox News did something like this, they would be mercilessly smeared by the liberal outrage gang on Twitter, and likely fired. But because Ms. Gay is a liberal hack who works for the fellow liberal hacks who own and run the New York Times, she will pay no price for her overt attempt to smear the President of the United States.

This utter and complete lack of accountability for intentional efforts by corrupt journalists to sow panic and fear in our society is not acceptable, especially when people working in every other profession in America are held accountable for their own actions. The first amendment is not a license to lie, not a license to abuse the public trust.

If those in positions of authority at these and many other media outlets continue to refuse to hold their people accountable for their acts of outright mendacity, then either the government or society at large will at some point decide to do it for them. History tells us very clearly that, whenever any society reaches that particular point, things get very, very ugly indeed.

Someone in the corporate media had better wake up, and soon.

Update: The President answers Ms. Gay’s despicable misrepresentation of his remarks in this morning’s coronavirus update:

That Time Newsweek Pretended to Have Journalistic Ethics

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

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

Wow. Newsweek is pretending to be all journalist-y and stuff now. – As reported here at the Campaign Update on Friday, a fake reporter for the on-life-support fake magazine Newsweek named Jessica Kwong beclowned herself and her corrupt editors by putting out a Thanksgiving morning piece in which she claimed President Trump planned to spend his day “Tweeting, golfing and more.”

But just hours later it was revealed that the President in fact made a secret flight to Afghanistan to spend the day with the U.S. military personnel at Bagram Air Force base. In response to that revelation, Kwong sheepishly issued a tweet in which she claimed to have made “an honest mistake.” Now, we all know that’s a lot of stuff and nonsense – or as Joe Biden would call it, “a bunch of malarky” – because it was obviously an effort by Ms. Kwong to damage the President’s reputation based on false assumptions about his character, something Newsweek and the rest of the corrupt news media outlets do every day.

In response to Kwong’s self-immolation, President Trump himself issued this hilarious tweet:

If this were CNN or the New York Times, you’d normally expect Ms. Kwong to be elevated to an editor’s job or maybe even the editorial board itself for engaging in such shameful hackery and self-humiliation. After all, Paul Krugman and Brian Stelter still thrive despite their serial clownish hackery. But apparently the public outcry towards Newsweek was enough to force the miserable cretins who run that operation to pretend to have suddenly developed a set of journalistic efforts, given that they fired Ms. Kwong on Saturday.

In announcing the firing, Newsweek issued the following laughable statement:

Image

So, Ms. Kwong is long gone, but Newsweek will struggle on, hoping you will think they have all these, like, “processes” and stuff in place, or something, to prevent it all from happening over and over and over again in the future. Because journalism!

No one should feel sorry for Ms. Kwong. We will no doubt find out in the coming week that she has landed herself a job at some other fake, corrupt news outlet, because the Democrat/media/deep state Axis of Disinformation always rewards its loyal foot soldiers. Newsweek did what it did strictly for reasons of self-preservation, but that doesn’t mean anyone at, say, Politico or Time will have to act accordingly.

Or hey, maybe she’ll grab a job at Bloomberg, a “news” operation so corrupt that it unashamedly brags about the fact that it refuses to investigate any of the myriad Democrat presidential candidates, focusing all of its efforts on President Trump. That seems like an outfit where a clown-suited hack like Jessica Kwong will fit right in.

That is all.

The Week in Review: Spying, Lying and Eunuchs, oh my!

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

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

The week began with the bag of scum named Preet Bharara admitting he actively plotted to reverse the results of the 2016 elections after Donald Trump was elected. Things got much, much better from there.:

See? There really is good news out there if you just look for it…:

I am so surprised to learn that this could happen in our public schools! said no adult who has ever dealt with the public schools in America.:

This about sums it up, all right.:

What if the Commie Mayor of New York City visited Nevada as part of a presidential campaign exploratory effort and nobody noticed?:

The ineffectual Kirstjen Nielsen got canned, and Larry Schweikart summed it up properly.:

Chris Coons demagogued the Neilsen firing, and pissed me off. Can you tell?:

James Woods with some really strong advice.:

One of the best parts of Twitter is reading all the enraged replies to the Babylon Bee by social justice warriors who are too dim to realize it is a parody account. Priceless.:

This was only the most predictable thing in the world.:

I’m not sure whether to laugh, cry, or just recoil in abject horror.:

The video of activist Candace Owens raking House Judiciary Democrats over their racist coals became the most-watched web-based video in C-Span’s history.:

Attorney General William Barr threw the Democrats and their news media co-conspirators into a panicked frenzy this week with his two days of congressional testimony. It was glorious.:

This happened on Wednesday.:

In the midst of it all, the shameless hacks at CNN just kept on doing what they do better than anybody else in the business, faking the news.:

No, times haven’t really changed much at all. All the racists in the un-doctored version of that photo were Democrats, too.:

GOP Texas Cong. Dan Crenshaw told the truth about Ilhan Omar’s despicable comments on 9/11. Democrats can’t handle the truth, so this tweet touched off a firestorm that raged through the rest of the week. *sigh*:

The Houston Chronicle embarrassed itself with this op-ed.:

AG Barr set the world afire once again with his clear-eyed admission that the Obama Administration was “spying” on the Trump Campaign. Democrats once again recoiled in abject horror at the truth finding its way into the public domain, because of course they did.:

CNN responded in very, very, very predictable fashion. The faked the news. *sigh*:

Oh, look. Bill Kristol thinks he still has “Republican friends.” Isn’t that precious?:

The hacks at Politico tried their best to keep up in the fakenews game by faking the news on…wait for it…a presidential visit to Mount Vernon.  I kid you not.:

Why yes, yes they are.:

Nick Searcy perfectly captures the essence of the Eric Swalwell for President campaign.:

I found the perfect screen shot of CNN’s little eunuch.:

Meanwhile, in news no American with a life gives a damn about…:

That’s a rhetorical question, right, Brit Hume?:

Hoping American taxpayers aren’t looking, makers of non-competitive electric vehicles campaigned to actually increase their already-princely taxpayer subsidies. Because of course they did.:

Also, this happened.:

Thursday was turning into a really epic day…:

Really, really epic…:

Some irrational tweets by mindless leftists require a rational answer.:

AOC decided to come to Ilhan Omar’s defense in a stupendously vapid way that only she could possibly achieve. For those unaware, Dan Crenshaw is a Navy Seal who fought for this country against terrorists in the Middle East, lost an eye in a roadside bomb attack, and is the recipient of a Purple Heart.:

The news of the indictment of Obama’s former White House Counsel was given less than a minute’s air time by the three major fake news networks. No surprise there, right?:

The latest media-created Democrat “Rising Star” was turning poor Beto into a has-been.:

By coincidence, my very thoughtful daughter and granddaughter bought me a fabulous new t-shirt. I’m wearing it, right now, in fact.:

Chevron bought out Anadarko in one of the biggest U.S. oil and gas mergers in the 21st century.:

Adam Schiff, whose home state has been using illegal immigrants as political pawns for decades now, tips off the Democrat/media talking points on Trump’s plan to relocate illegals to sanctuary cities. Hilarity ensuses.:

Speaking of our favorite pendejo, here he is, lying about the ongoing border crisis.:

Sure glad to see the Pentagon has its national defense priorities straight. *sigh*:

This bit of fakenews from Politico hasn’t held up well in light of current events.:

It’s the big one, Elizabeth! I’m comin’ to join you!:

We’ll close the week out with this one. If you want to understand the inner workings of the Democrat/media hive mind, it’s a good read. If you’re a Democrat, you should avoid it, since you might learn something.:

The Media Campaign to Downplay Trump’s Deal With North Korea has Begun

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Open borders in action! – A 20 year-old Muslim man was shot and killed by Paris police after he had gone on a knifing campaign in which he murdered one victim and injured four others, shouting “Allahu akbar!” as went about his merry way.  The man had claimed asylum as a Chechnyan refugee 10 years before.  Fake analysts on CNN and MSNBC will spend the next month agonizing over what this poor man’s motivation could possibly have been.

Your fake news media in action! – Well, the media campaign to downplay the coming deal with North Korea to de-nuclearize the Korean peninsula has begun.  It was so predictable, but still so tiresome.

Writing at Politico, some guy named Anthony Ruggiero, a senior fellow at the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, says that the Crazy Little Fat Guy is setting a trap for Donald Trump.  He cites as his reasons for thinking this “lessons” from previous negotiations with leaders in North Korea.  Hooboy.  Here’s the link – read the whole thing for yourself if you have 7-10 minutes to waste.

Look, this deal is already done.  The major points have already been negotiated, and all that’s going to be hammered out over the next few weeks before President Trump and Kim Jong Un meet in Singapore in early June are the remaining details.  Contrary to what Ruggiero says in his piece, every signal we have seen related to this event indicates that the major points of an agreement were settled weeks ago.  President Trump’s public statements on the matter indicate that, Kim’s concessions since early April indicate that, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s multiple trips to North Korea indicate that.

Donald Trump is not Barack Obama or George W. Bush or Bill Clinton, the presidents who tried and failed to reach some sort of accommodation with previous members of the Kim dynasty.  Trump is not negotiating from a position of weakness and appeasement with the Crazy Little Fat Guy.  He is not, as were his predecessors, especially concerned about what the Brits or the French or the Germans think about it all.  He doesn’t give a damn what the UN Security Council’s concerns might be.

This is a deal that has been struck between the U.S., South Korea, Japan, China and Russia – Kim is only a bit player in all of this.  Japan is sick of having to worry about the little nitwit firing off a nuke and taking out one of its cities, South Korea is sick of having to spend so much of its national treasure defending itself from its northern neighbor, and Russia and China are sick of dealing with all of the tension and disruption in trade and their economies that Kim’s antics create.

Contrary to Ruggiero’s claims, we have not seen concessions of the sort we have seen from North Korea this time in advance of prior negotiations.  Think of the major concessions Kim has made since April 1:

  • The formal end of the Korean War and the standoff at the demilitarized zone with South Korea, a tense situation that had gone on for 64 years;
  • The release of three political prisoners well in advance of the meeting with President Trump, with no U.S. concessions of any kind in return.  No easing of sanctions, no bags of money, nothing.;
  • The announcement of the dismantling of his main nuclear testing site in advance of the meeting with Trump, inviting international journalists and other observers to be present when it happens.

Yes, there have been releases of political prisoners before, but the other two concessions are completely without any similar precedent whatsoever.  After all, how many times can you end a 64 year-old war, or dismantle a nuclear testing site?

One of the bits of sage wisdom that Ruggiero offers President Trump is to “Be prepared to walk away from the table,” something the President himself has publicly said he’d be ready to do on at least a dozen occasions.  Great catch there, guy.

But there will be no walking away from the table, because this deal is already done.  Donald Trump is not going to fly Air Force One all the way over to Singapore on June 12 unless he knows in advance that the deal is complete and everybody is going to walk away happy.

Ruggeiro’s bio notes that he spent 17 years in the U.S. government.  He might want to spend a few hours reading Trump’s book.

Expect to see the media campaign to downplay the upcoming deal with North Korea and deny Trump credit for it to really start ramping up in the coming week.  Ruggiero’s piece is just the first shot across the bow.  Yes, it’s extremely tiresome, but that’s all these people have at this point.

Just another day in Donald Trump just keeps on winning for America.

That is all.
