Saturday News Roundup: Gina Carano Rebounds as Lincoln Project Rats Flee the Sinking Ship

Today’s Short-Term Memory Update. – Just a reminder that the real violent riots that have plagued our society over the last four years have come from the BLM/Antifa left, two groups created and sponsored by the Democrat Party:

Today’s Global Climate Scam Update. – Just in case you are buying the bullsh*t coming from the government that this terrible arctic cold weather is due to “missing Arctic sea ice,” I just thought you ought to know that there is no missing Arctic sea ice. The extent of Arctic sea ice right now, today, is essentially unchanged from where it has averaged for the last 40 years.

The more you know…

Today’s Be Thankful For Big Oil Update. – Watch this video. Play close attention to it, because it’s the absolute truth.
That truth is that our modern lives are not possible without oil, natural gas and other petroleum products, and there is no affordable, scalable alternative to them in existence today.

As you sit safely warm in your homes as everything is freezing outside for the next week, be thankful for “Big Oil,” because without Big Oil, you’d be freezing, too.

P.S.: The guy’s underwear is also made with petroleum products, but they’d have to rate the ad XXX if they made that disappear, too.

Fleeing like rats from a sinking ship. – The scandal-plagued DC Swamp grift called the Lincoln Project bled more members on Friday, as one of its founders, the piggish George Conway, accused the group of engaging in criminal activity by illegally accessing and publishing the Twitter private massages of Jennifer Horn, another ex-member who left the group earlier this week.

One of the group’s other co-founders, Steve Schmidt, announced he was quitting the scam after it was revealed on Thursday that he and everyone else involved had known about fellow founder and former McCain campaign manager John Weaver’s proclivity for sexually preying on young boys since at least last June and said nothing about it. In a transparent effort to garner sympathy and set up a narrative explaining why he didn’t blow the whistle on Weaver, Schmidt included, without providing evidence, a claim that he was molested when he was 13 years old by a Boy Scout leader. Because of course he did.

From a story at DailyWire:

 

Steve Schmidt, a GOP political operative and co-founder of The Lincoln Project, released a statement Friday claiming he was molested as a teenage Boy Scout. This came after news broke about his resignation from the anti-Trump organization.

Schmidt’s resignation is the latest consequence of the numerous allegations against Schmidt’s fellow co-founder John Weaver, who allegedly exhibited sexually predatory behavior toward young men in exchange for career advancement, according to Axios.

One of the boys to whom Weaver reportedly spoke was only 14 years old at the time, according to one of the 21 alleged victims interviewed by The New York Times.

The super PAC, which the Associated Press reported paid most of the $90 million it raised to consulting firms with ties to the group’s founders and senior staff, has been hemorrhaging employees since the accusations against Weaver went public.

The Lincoln Project spokesperson Kurt Bardella, video series host Nayyera Haq, and columnist Tom Nichols also resigned Friday.

Maybe Schmidt was molested, maybe he wasn’t, but it would be taking a page right out of the playbook of Alexandria Ocasio Cortez to just invent such a story as a means of garnering public sympathy and shifting blame for one’s own despicable actions – or in Schmidt’s case, his inaction. Molested or not, nothing absolves Schmidt and the rest of the Lincoln Project creep grifters from failing to do something about the inappropriate behavior of their partner and de facto leader.

With Friday’s defections, the only high-profile grifter remaining among the original founders is Rick Wilson, a lifelong circus clown who always has been slow on the uptake, which helps explain why he has managed so many losing campaigns. Wilson is perhaps the most repugnant of the entire bunch, though, so it’s no surprise he’s the last hanger-on in this massive scam.

I write much more about this pack of professional sleazeballs elsewhere this morning in Today’s Required Reading. Go read it.

Gina Carano Refuses to be cancelled by the Perpetual Outrage Mob. – Fresh from being fired by the Nazi goons at Disney for tweeting the truth about the current state of American culture, actress Gina Carano announced on Friday that she has agreed to a new production/acting gig with DailyWire.

From the story at DailyWire:

Two days after Gina Carano was reportedly axed by Disney “in what critics alleged was a politically-motivated hit,” The Daily Wire announced that they will be partnering with the former Mandalorian actress, who will “produce and star in an upcoming film exclusively for Daily Wire members.”

On Friday, The Daily Wire announced that it would be partnering with Carano to produce an upcoming film exclusively for Daily Wire members. “The Daily Wire is helping make one of my dreams — to develop and produce my own film — come true. I cried out and my prayer was answered,” Carano said in a statement. (The Daily Wire is offering a 25% discount for new members with the Carano-themed promo code “GINA.”)

“I am sending out a direct message of hope to everyone living in fear of cancellation by the totalitarian mob,” Carano said. “I have only just begun using my voice which is now freer than ever before, and I hope it inspires others to do the same. They can’t cancel us if we don’t let them.”

After the exclusive Deadline report broke, news of Carano’s partnership with The Daily Wire immediately went viral, with massive media coverage of what can only be described as a complete rejection of cancel culture.

Cool.

 

Today’s Impeachment Scam Update. – Just a reminder that the Democrats in congress are attempting to impeach Donald Trump for trying to overturn the results of the 2020 election. Which is exactly what they did following the 2016 election:

Projection. That’s what the Democrats do. In fact, it’s pretty much all they do.

That is all.

Don Lemon’s Unwitting Gift to Trump Supporters

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

He got a bigger audience from this than he ever gets on his low-rated show. – CNN’s dimwitted, haughty night-time host Don Lemon made actual news over the past two days when he played host to another in a long line of segments ridiculing the average, hard-working Americans who make up the preponderance of President Donald Trump’s support base.

In case you’ve managed to miss it to this point, here’s a clip of the segment in question, which apparently took place on Saturday:

So, this is likely to become the next “deplorables” incident committed by the demented Democrats and their corrupt media toadies. The joker on the right in the clip with Lemon is the detestable hack Rick Wilson, a pretend “conservative” who worked on the … wait for it … Evan McMullin presidential campaign in 2016. He now makes money by being one of CNN’s fake conservative mascots. The clown on the left is some guy named Wajahat Ali, who bills himself on Twitter as an op/ed contributor for the … wait for it … New York Times, and an on-air contributor for CNN. Because of course he is.

Clowns to the left of Lemon, Jokers to the right, there he is, stuck in the middle on national television, ridiculing 63 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump in 2016, and the millions more who have joined his supporter base since. Not really a good look, even for a CNN host with the IQ and character of the average Louisiana swamp nutria.

Lemon apparently got a scolding from his corporate bosses over the segment on Tuesday, after the clip had gone viral Monday night. Which can only be attributed to someone at parent company AT&T fearing that it might not be good for its cellular service or DirecTV customer base for CNN’s on-air [bad] talent to be actively ridiculing half of the American public. Certainly, no one in CNN’s own management gives a damn about such considerations, as demonstrated by the fake news channel’s behavior over the last five years.

Regardless of who in corporate management initiated the action, Lemon obviously spent much of his day on Tuesday with CNN’s HR and communications staff, and came up with a very Clintonian non-apology to recite at the start of his show Tuesday night:

Let’s break that statement down, shall we?

And one final note that I have for you because this is personally important to me to address this, okay? Anyone, ask anyone who knows me, they’ll tell you I don’t believe in belittling people [Ah, the old Clintonian “ask anyone who knows me” dodge. Standard non-apology tactic there.]

— belittling anyone for who they are, what they believe, or where they’re from. [Yet, the clip clearly shows Lemon roaring with laughter, to the point of tears, as his two dimwitted guests belittled millions of ordinary Americans out here in Flyover Country for ‘who they are, what they believe, and where they’re from.’]

During an interview on Saturday night, one of my guests said something that made me laugh and while in the moment I found the joke humorous, and I didn’t catch everything that was said. [Oh, boy, the “I didn’t catch everything that was said” dodge, which is just a slight variation from the “I was misquoted” dodge and the “I was taken out of context” dodge. Again, standard non-apology tactic.]

Just to make this perfectly clear, I was laughing at the joke and not at any group of people.” [And yet, clearly, Don Lemon, Rick Wilson and that Ali guy who nobody’s ever heard of were laughing uproariously at an easily-identified group of people called “Trump supporters.”]

Lemon’s statement – no doubt dictated to him by his AT&T/CNN bosses – was not an apology at all. It was simply more condescension towards a group of millions of Americans he personally hates and who his bosses simply do not value. It was a desperate and insincere act by a haughty, thoughtless jackass whose only real concern is that he doesn’t want his face to be featured in thousands of Trump/Republican campaign ads this Fall.

Well, sorry, Don – too late for that. Any Republican candidate who doesn’t produce a TV ad featuring this clip is a Republican candidate who is probably too dumb to win his or her election.

Matter of fact, Ronna McDaniel and the RNC are already showing candidates how it’s done:

Thanks for the gift, Don.

What comes next? On tonight’s show – or maybe he’ll wait until tomorrow – Lemon will start claiming he is receiving death threats over the clip, a tactic to which Ali already resorted in a Tweet on Tuesday. It’s nonsense, but hey, it’s on the next page of the playbook.

These people hate you and wish you were dead. Never, ever forget that.

That is all.
