Thursday News Roundup: Trump’s Only Recourse to Police Democrat Voter Fraud is the Courts

Here’s where things stand this morning on the only story that really matters:

– Wisconsin is gone, with Joe Biden holding a lead of about 20,000 votes.

– Michigan is gone, with Joe Biden holding a lead of about 150,000 votes.

– President Trump leads by a quarter of a million votes in Pennsylvania, but can there be any doubt that the vote “counters” in Philadelphia will manufacture that many votes and more before this day is through?

– Georgia is trending badly, with President Trump clinging to a lead of 19,000 votes with maybe another 100,000 still to be “counted”, mostly in Fulton County, home to heavily-Democrat Atlanta.

– North Carolina is still not fully done, with the President holding a 77,000 vote lead that appears to be solid to hold up at the end of the day.

– Arizona is still up for grabs, with Biden clinging to a tenuous lead of about 69,000 votes with half a million still to be counted.

– Nevada is still up for grabs as well, with Biden leading by about 8,000 but a quarter million or more votes remaining uncounted.

What do all of these states but Arizona and Georgia have in common? Democrat governors. So, if the Trump campaign is looking for any effective, diligent policing of obvious, blatant voter fraud efforts that took place and are still taking place from state officials, they are looking in vain.

Well, then, what about getting assistance from the FBI and the Federal Elections Commission? Yeah, if your name is Trump it’s pretty obvious you won’t be getting any help from the FBI, right? And the FEC is an anachronistic institution that hasn’t done anything real to police and prevent voter fraud in a generation or more.

Thus, Trump’s only resort is to the federal courts, and to do what the campaign did yesterday: Call out an army of lawyers led by Rudy Giuliani, a former U.S. attorney who knows how to root out organized crime like we have witnessed in Michigan and Pennsylvania and Georgia and Wisconsin related to the conduct of elections in this cycle.

Giuliani, accompanied by Eric Trump, held a press conference yesterday to kick off  his efforts in Pennsylvania.

From a report at the New York Post:

At a hastily called together press conference in Philadelphia, the president’s son Eric Trump and personal attorney Rudy Giuliani announced Trump 2020 was taking legal action to stop what they called “rampant corruption.”

“We’re gonna win Pennsylvania, but they’re trying to cheat us out of it because they know it’s their only path to victory, they know it’s the only path to victory,” Eric Trump said.

The campaign filed a lawsuit in the swing commonwealth of Pennsylvania earlier Wednesday calling for a halt to vote counting until their Republican poll observers were given better access at polling centers.

In a tweet fired-off during the event, Trump said he was declaring himself the winner of Pennsylvania, Georgia and [North] Carolina and claimed he would have also seized Michigan if not for “a large number of secretly dumped ballots.”

“We have claimed, for Electoral Vote purposes, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (which won’t allow legal observers) the state of Georgia and the State of North Carolina, each of which has a BIG Trump lead,” he tweeted.

“This is among one of the most anti-democratic things I’ve ever seen or encountered and it’s not just here in Philadelphia, it is going on all over the country,” Giuliani claimed.

[End]

Giuliani’s last statement there is of course true. In Michigan, for example, a tranche of 138,000 votes were dumped early yesterday morning by vote “counters,”  and each and every one of them was supposedly for Joe Biden. Officials came in later in the day and oh, gee, well that was just a “typo” – someone had added an extra zero. Sure, but that still amounts to almost 14,000 votes, all for a single candidate, a statistical impossibility.

In another instance in Michigan, the county vote totals in one county showed Biden winning that county by 3,000 votes. It turned out the total had been “transposed” and that Trump had actually rolled up a 3,000 vote win there. Officials wrote it off to a simple clerical errors, but it is passing strange how all of the “errors,” each and every one of them, only go in one direction.

Can anyone doubt that the Democrats in Wisconsin falsified at least 20,000 votes in that state? Please, that’s a walk in the park for these people. A recanvassing of the dead voters in state would no doubt turn up at least that many votes in Madison and Milwaukee alone. There are lots and lots of cemeteries in those towns.

In Pennsylvania, as Eric Trump and Giuliani noted, GOP election observers have been shut out of vote counting operations, and big dumps of all-Biden ballots took place throughout the day on Wednesday. Here is how Nate Silver’s Democrat-shilling operation noted one of them:

“23,277 votes in Philadelphia, all for Biden,” noted without critical comment. Again, a statistical impossibility. The odds of that being legitimate would be in the billions or trillions to 1, and a guy who styles himself to be a statistical geek just puts it out there without comment.

Surreal.

Twitter, of course, was feverishly censoring all mention of the massive vote-stealing operations, as noted by Newt Gingrich:

If you click on that tweet to try to get to the report at the Federalist, Twitter won’t allow you to go there, and takes you to one of its false disclaimers that were likely written by the Biden/Harris campaign instead.

Of course, we were warned about all of this repeatedly over the last 6 months. I noted time after time that the Democrats were not even really hiding their intention to steal this election through  massive vote fraud using the easily-subverted mail-in ballots as their main vehicle. Biden himself noted at one point in a call with fundraisers that his campaign had built the “largest voter fraud operation in history.” Apologists in the media wrote it off as a gaffe, but what it really was was a slip of the tongue, a rare moment of honesty from a pathological liar.

And the entire operation has been facilitated by the Democrat governors. The same governors who have used the China Virus as an excuse to keep their economies shut down for political gain are the governors who mass-mailed ballots to every person in their states, and they’re the same governors who jointly paused the vote counting in the wee hours of the morning on Wednesday as the President was on the verge of securing his victory with wins in Wisconsin, Michigan, Georgia and Pennsylvania. Once they had assessed exactly how many votes they would have to manufacture, those same governors – all Democrats – restarted the vote “counting” with a singular goal in mind.

This is why GOP election observers have been denied access to counting operations in places like Philadelphia, Detroit, Milwaukee and Atlanta, and it is why those Democrat governors refuse to forthrightly explain the processes in their states in clear and concise terms to the public.

The only recourse is the courts, and ultimately that means the U.S. Supreme Court. That is why the media/Democrat Axis of Propaganda has mounted such a furious campaign to claim that new Justice Amy Coney Barrett should recuse herself from any election-related decisions. They know that Chief Justice John Roberts is compromised, and that a 4-4 vote at the Supreme Court would in fact be a denial of the Trump campaign’s complaints.

At the end of the day, the stalwart effort by Mitch McConnell and Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham to ensure Justice Barrett’s confirmation could end up saving the Republic from its first-ever dementia-riddled Presidency.

This will all take weeks, not days, so hunker down and stay safe.

That is all.

Friday News Roundup: Steve Scully, Joe Biden, Facebook and Twitter – So Many Liars, So Little Time

You don’t sayyyyyyyyyy. – Former Biden intern Steve Scully, who was selected by the anti-Trump Commission on Presidential Debates was suspended “indefinitely” by his employer C-Span yesterday after he was forced to admit that his claim that his Twitter account had been “hacked” was exactly what we all knew it was: A very transparent lie.

From a report by the Associated Press:

C-SPAN suspended its political editor Steve Scully indefinitely Thursday after he admitted to lying about his Twitter feed being hacked when he was confronted about a questionable exchange with former Trump aide Anthony Scaramucci.

The news came on the day of what was supposed to be a career highlight for the 30-year C-SPAN veteran. Scully was to moderate the second debate between President Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden, which was canceled after Trump would not agree to a virtual format because of his COVID-19 diagnosis.

A week ago, after Trump had criticized him as a “never Trumper,” Scully tweeted “@Scaramucci should I respond to Trump.” Scaramucci, a former Trump communications director and now a critic of the president, advised Scully to ignore him.

Scully said that when he saw his tweet had created a controversy, “I falsely claimed that my Twitter account had been hacked.”

[End]

Well, knock me over with a feather.

Oh, this’ll make it all better, y’all! – Twitter’s “lead” for policy and lots of other stuff, some SJW named Vijaya Gadde, put up a big long thread last night – after Twitter’s entire platform had gone down for a couple of hours – claiming that she and her company were changing their “hacked materials policy”:

There are 8 more tweets in that thread, but I’m not going to re-post them here.

Here is all you need to know about this: Nobody has alleged that the materials that form the basis for the bombshell New York Post reports on Joe and Hunter Biden’s influence scam related to Ukraine and China were “hacked.” The Biden Campaign does not even make that absurd, ridiculous, despicably false claim. The emails were obviously not “hacked,” and everyone knows it.

Twitter and Facebook are not enforcing any sort of real “policies” here. They are quite simply engaging in Big Brother censorship on behalf of the Biden/Harris Harris/Biden campaign. Period. And for that action, both platforms should immediately lose their protections under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, and the FCC and Justice Department should start taking actions under the nation’s communications and anti-trust laws to break them up. Period.

Interestingly, Twitter’s global “outage” took place right after it was announced that it would be getting a subpoena from the Senate Judiciary Committee demanding that its CEO, Jack Dorsey, show up and testify under oath next Friday about his company’s lurch into undisguised censorship and interference in a presidential election. That subpoena was demanded by GOP Senators Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley. Why it does not also include Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s name is a real mystery.

Interestingly, pretty much all other GOP senators have remained studiously silent on the matter, conclusively proving how worthless they are in a real crisis for our Republic. Some things never change.

Writing at the Washington Examiner, Byron York reminds us that, while the social media censorship angle is crucial, it is also key to remember the essence of the corruption that the Biden family was engaged in:

Now, the Post has published an email, reported to be from a Burisma executive to Hunter Biden. The Post says it was sent on April 17, 2015, when Joe Biden was vice president and Hunter Biden was on Burisma’s board. “Dear Hunter,” the executive, Vadym Pozharskyi, wrote, “thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together. It’s realty [sic] an honor and pleasure.”

Democrats and Biden’s partisans in the press pushed back ferociously. It’s Russian disinformation, they claimed, without any specific knowledge that it was Russian disinformation. Facebook limited the distribution of the Post story. Twitter banned it altogether. All of this was done before anyone made any serious attempt to confirm the allegation.

The Biden campaign denied it all. “The New York Post never asked the Biden campaign about the critical elements of this story,” spokesman Andrew Bates said. “They certainly never raised that Rudy Giuliani — whose discredited conspiracy theories and alliance with figures connected to Russian intelligence have been widely reported — claimed to have such materials. Moreover, we have reviewed Joe Biden’s official schedules from the time and no meeting, as alleged by the New York Post, ever took place.”

The last sentence is what matters. With it, the Biden campaign seemed to be flatly denying that Hunter Biden introduced Pozharskyi to Vice President Biden. Of course, one could parse the meaning. For example, the statement referred only to Biden’s “official schedules.” There could not have been some sort of unofficial introduction, could there? And the statement said that no meeting “as alleged by the New York Post” ever took place. There could not have been some sort of introduction that did not fit the allegation in the Post, could there? Certainly the Biden campaign would not make a lawyerly, evasive statement like that, would it?

[End]

Well, of course the Biden campaign would “make a lawyerly, evasive statement.” It’s all they got, because the Post stories are 100% true, and they are just the tip of a very large and disgusting iceberg.

Meanwhile, here is what New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has law enforcement officials in New York doing to the state’s Jewish community:

Just a reminder that our country is in so many ways right about where Germany was in early 1938, and if we return the Democrat Party to national power, we’ll be right at “invasion of Poland” time in a blink.

That is all.

Government’s Intolerable Failure to Regulate Social Media Monopolies

Guest Piece by Gregg Updike

One of government’s most fundamental responsibilities is to protect its citizen’s life liberty and property.  It is clear to any intellectually honest person that they have failed in this on many levels; this is intolerable.  I am not talking about the riots and bogus shutdowns that are killing small business and people’s livelihood, although that is another failure. I am talking about censorship, identify theft and the permitted invasion of privacy.

Twenty-three or so years ago I dated a computer network engineer and she explained the concept of the open and free public internet.  She told me how it was going to be an open forum unregulated and untaxed.  I found the whole concept to be unbelievable; ultimately everything needs to be controlled in some manner or there will be complete anarchy.

What we have now is all the anarchy of the open forum of the public internet and the dictatorial unfettered control of a handful of tech giant leaders who determine whose message is heard and what information is disseminated.  It is the worst of both worlds.  This thought control is every bit, if not more so, as pervasive as much as the six or so traditional ‘news’ and entertainment networks.

Worse, the people who run these big tech social media platforms and their algorithms censor political thought are nameless and faceless.  They operate anonymously with near impunity.  Unlike the traditional media where we can at least see who the propagandists are and turn off the channel or drop our newspaper or magazine subscriptions; we have no such option if we want to engage in the social media arena with conservative views.  Rather than have true open forums for thought, we are slaves to what they want us to see, hear, think, and how we ultimately vote.

By an amazing coincidence virtually all the rulers of these social media tech giants support the Left and the Democratic Party.  And they are providing free “in-kind” donations worth millions, if not billions to that party and its candidates.  This is clearly intolerable.  Where is the FEC; that worthless “watchdog” commission that is supposed to ensure “free and fair” elections?

Who runs the feckless FEC?  I suspect it is the same never-Republicans and Democratic loyalists who control the Debate Commission.  I now call them never-Republicans as they are not just “never-Trumpers” sandbagging President Trump; they have done it to most Republican politicians over the years.

No one is more anti-government regulation than me, but I realize a free and prosperous society must have laws, rules and regulations in order to remain free, prosperous, AND protected from charlatans who take advantage of their positions of wealth and power.  This is why we have the FDA, the EPA, OSHA, consumer protection organizations and the FEDERAL ELECTION COMMISION.  It is why the FBI, DOJ and the alphabet intelligence agencies exist: to protect the law-abiding American citizens from fraud and damage.  They are failing in that most basic mission and need to be greatly reformed or disbanded.

One of the most galling aspects of the whole internet “thing”, as Biden would say, is how the government has utterly failed in protect its citizens from all the problems associated with the internet.

How is it we have a whole new private industry created to protect people from internet identity theft and protect individuals from computer viruses and other internet driven maladies?  Frequent commenters on this site have recently been reporting all kinds of interference on our free speech rights from malware and other attacks and apparently nothing can be done to prevent any determined individual or group from engaging in such malicious activity.

Who says crime doesn’t pay?  It is certainly paying all the security companies vying for our dollars to protect us from electronic data crime.  It seems we get monthly news stories about how some big retail chain, tourism company, or investment firm and even the federal, or a state or local government gets hacked and millions of people’s personal data could be exposed, stolen or compromised.

Where is the government, our supposed protector, in this?  Where are the ‘news’ stories of arrests and convictions of hackers and identify thieves?  Isn’t it amazing how some local arrest resisting minority criminal suspect who nobody ever heard of gets killed in a confrontation with the police and half the county erupts in chaos and violence for months on end; yet nary a peep is ever reported about hackers who cost society billions of dollars every year and ruin lives of thousands?  The cost we must pay for our ‘data security’ must be added to the overall cost of criminal activity our government is supposed to but fails to protect us from.

Why is there no outcry from the competing information (news) industry about how big-tech social media platforms censors political free speech?   The answer to that question is simple: their message is the same; they are just birds of a feather flocking us together.

Under the previous administration(s) many government agencies were corrupted to suppress freedom of speech of conservative groups and no one – not the media, not the FBI or the DOJ, no inspector general at the IRS or any other people controlling agencies – of weight said a peep or showed any concern about these egregious violations of public trust, safety and security.  If there were any “whistleblowers” they were squelched, and no one gave a whit about it.

Where are the “99 plus percent“ of the “good people” in these agencies sounding the alarm?  Yet we get some unnamed hack raising hell and who officially remained anonymous given congressional notoriety in an effort to bring down President Trump on a bogus accusation; which had the effect of pausing the agenda of the Trump Administration and probably hurt the initial COVID-19 response.  Apparently only “whistleblowers” of a certain political persuasion are protected, while opposing “whistleblowers’ – if they exist – are intimidated into silence and/or ignored by the various departmental HR and IGs and especially the MSM (D).

It must be a priority of a second Trump Administration to protect the American people from the ravages of the “internet”.  Many, if not most of the agencies charged with protecting American Citizen’s rights, freedoms and property must be either reformed or abolished.  Part of that reform would be moving them out of the DC Beltway Cesspool and busting up big tech through anti-trust laws and regulations.

President Trump might and should make those reforms happen; a Biden administration certainly will not.  Biden is a 47-year statis quo/quid pro quo swamp-rat; why would he do anything to punish the people who carry his water?

Tuesday News Roundup: Kasich Goes Full Democrat, Trump Telegraphs Pardon and Portland Riots Steam Ahead

Pardon me? Beg pardon? – Talking to reporters at the end of a whirlwind day of three campaign events, President Donald Trump telegraphed that he would be issuing a pardon today. Being the showman that he is, he further telegraphed that it will be a “very, very important” person.

From a story at Fox News:

Speaking to reporters on Air Force One while on his way back to Washington from a tour of battleground states in the Midwest, Trump dropped the news about the upcoming pardon – saying only that it would not be former NSA staffer Edward Snowden or Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Trump over the weekend hinted that he was considering pardoning Snowden, the former National Security Agency contractor who has been living in Russia since he leaked information on vast domestic and international surveillance operations carried out by the NSA.

[End]

Ok, so, it’s not Snowden and it isn’t General Flynn. Who does that leave out there as likely suspects? Good question. One thing to keep in mind here is that the subject of a presidential pardon does not have to be among the living – this could be about correcting some historic wrong that Trump’s predecessors chose not to correct. Also note that no one asked the President about the possibility that it could be WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

But that’s all just speculation. As the President likes to say, “we’ll see what happens.” It will be a very interesting day, no doubt filled with the sounds of exploding liberal heads.

On Twitter, conservative satire is bad, the ChiCom Party is gooooood. – The humorless ghouls who run Twitter have recently been on a campaign to purge their outrage site of conservative satire accounts. Yesterday, for no apparent good reason, they suspended the tremendous Babylon Bee satire news account, which every day produces some of the funniest content on earth.

Simply put, the Babylon Bee is what Saturday Night Live aspired to be in its early days, and what South Park still achieves from time to time: A brilliant satire operation that skewers everyone. Upon learning of the Babylon Bee’s suspension, Dana Loesch captured the moment perfectly:

Indeed, pretty much all radical leftists are too petty and stupid to appreciate satire, which helps to explain how they became radical leftists in the first place. After all, intelligent people of good will know better.

Twitter lamely explained that the Babylon Bee account had been suspended due to a violation of its fake rules against “manipulation of information,” which of course is the very essence of good satire. But again, these people are too stupid and petty to understand that. And let’s all realize that this “rule” – like all other Twitter “rules” – is completely fake, applied only as a means of censoring conservative thought and speech. Twitter makes no similar efforts to censor the rank propaganda spewed by the ChiCom Party on its platform via thousands of accounts each and every day.

But this story has a semi-happy ending: Perhaps due to the outrage expressed by thousands of conservative Twitter users – or perhaps because maybe, just maybe, there is one actual semi-cogent adult working in Twitter management – the Babylon Bee account was restored after just a brief period of time.

The most tiresome man in politics is now officially a Democrat. – The Democrats can have John Kasich, the tiresome self-promoting drone who spoke at their fake convention last night. In doing so, Kasich abandoned every conservative principle he had spent the previous 40 years spouting at the altar of revenge on the bad orange man who humiliated him during the 2016 campaign.

In taking this action, Kasich personifies the entire #NeverTrump collection of hacks, war-mongers, grifters and semi-lucid pundits. These are people who have made their livings by pretending to fight for conservative values while surrendering consistently on each and every major issue our nation has faced.

These are people who detested Ronald Reagan when he came into office and spent 8 years attempting – and mostly failing – to convince him to give in to the Democrats. They are people whose political heroes are the likes of John McCain and the surrender monkeys Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. They are people who like to quote the great William F. Buckley but always fail to heed his principle that it is often the role of real conservatives to “stand astride the march of history yelling stop!”

Surrender monkeys like John Kasich never summon the courage to yell stop. They’re always claiming to be “searching for the middle ground,” knowing full well that no one on the other side is engaged in a similar search, and that they will be the only party to make a move to get there. But they don’t really care about that as long as the money keeps flowing in and they can keep holding their seminar cruises and getting gigs as the pet fake conservative blooger for the New York Times or Washington Post and occasionally turning up as fake conservative talking heads on CNN or MSNBC or Fox News.

That’s the ground John Kasich has firmly sought and held onto throughout his entire sorry career, and it is the ground he continued to perch atop last night. Make no mistake about this: Kasich and his fellow #NeverTrump nitwits hate Donald Trump for the very same reason why real conservatives love him.

Because Trump fights.

Meanwhile in Portland, Oregon… – Real journalist Andy Ngo, the only reason why we know that is really happening in Portland on a nightly basis, stumbled across a rare commission of actual journalism by one of Portland’s local TV stations:

It’s almost a miracle. Here is the victim that that report is about:

Meanwhile, the riots continued for their 81st consecutive night with no sign that the Portland Police are making any real effort to stop them:

You can be sure this appeal from Mr. Ngo to communist Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler will go unheeded:

And remember this: These rioters are paid and organized by the communist Democrat Party. By speaking at the Democrat convention last night, John Kasich formally endorsed this behavior.

Truly despicable.

That is all.

Thursday News Roundup: Trump Snags Endorsement, Bags Campaign Manager, Big Twitter Hack, NYC Chaos

So, now we know what it takes for police unions to do the right thing in a presidential election. – The National Association of Police Organizations, an umbrella organization that represents 1,000 local police unions with more than 241,000 members, formally endorsed President Donald Trump in his bid for re-election on Wednesday. This is a big win for the President and fellow Republicans, who stood by dumbfounded in 2008 and 2012 as this same association and most of its local organizations endorsed the aggressively anti-police Obama/Biden ticket.

Think about that for a minute: Why would any police organization have ever endorsed a Democrat presidential candidate? Or any Democrat for any office, for that matter? Why did this particular organization feel so conflicted when faced with the clear choice of the very pro-police Donald Trump and the extreme anti-police Pantsuit Princess in 2016 that it decided to sit that one out rather than do the right thing?

The fact that this endorsement of a Republican had to be basically forced out of the NAPO by the growing movement to defund police departments by Democrat mayors and city councils just reinforces the image of unions in general being corrupt organizations bought and paid for by leftwing political interests.

So, thanks, NAPO, for finally doing the right thing; but man, it has been way too long in coming.

Big hack in Twitterville. – Some enterprising soul or group of souls performed a hilarious hack on Twitter world yesterday. Early in the evening, the accounts of prominent figures like Bill Gates, Jeff Bezo, Barack Obama and Joe Biden and many, many more – including Twitter’s own support account –  suddenly tweeted out the same message:

Image

Here’s the punch line: The hackers only attacked verified, so-called “blue-check” accounts that have become literal badges of honor among all the corrupt, leftwing reporters and editors in our fake news media. In order to address the issue, Twitter was forced to actually deactivate every “blue-check” account for the better part of an hour.

Here was the scene at the New York Times building in Manhattan:

Mass Panic GIFs | Tenor

This is what it looked like at CNN:

Panic GIFs - Get the best GIF on GIPHY

Meanwhile, this is how every other Twitter user felt as the momentary calm and rationality settled in over the social media platform:

Heaven, I'm In Heaven... GIF - Heaven ImInHeaven InHeaven ...

Twitter’s stock is crashing this morning as a result of this hack, which was achieved through the use of Twitter’s own employee tools.

Imagine that.

So, just like he did twice in 2016, then? – President Trump switched out campaign managers last night, and now the drumbeat of “this is the beginning of the end for Donald Trump” will start up in the corrupt news media for the 1,123rd time.

Upon learning of the news, Fake Jake Tapper sagely pronounced on his freshly-restored blue-check Twitter account that this means that the President is seeing all the same terrible polling data everyone else is seeing. Actually, what it most likely means is that the President is making exactly the same move he made on June 20, 2016, when he replaced Cory Lewandowski, a virtual novice who had never managed a major campaign before, with Paul Manafort, a seasoned pro.

Like Lewandowski, Brad Parscale, a social media and data specialist, is a novice as a campaign manager who has largely been blamed for the screw-ups that happened with last month’s Tulsa rally. He is being replaced by Bill Stepien, who actually has experience running campaigns. As we move into the meat of this race, this particular move should come as no surprise to anyone.

And Stepien had better perform well and with great energy, given that Trump fired Manafort 50 days after he hired him because, as Trump hilariously said, he was “low energy.” Manafort was replaced by the combination of Steve Bannon and KellyAnne Conway, and the rest is history.

Parscale will remain with the campaign and continue doing what he does best.

132 shootings in 10 days, and Bill de Blasio’s response is painting Marxist slogans on 5th Avenue. – The violent crime rate in New York City is skyrocketing directly as a result of the actions taken by Marxist Mayor Bill de Blasio, whose real name is Warren Wilhelm.

As Patrick Brosnan points out in the New York Post, the city saw its bloodiest month of June in history thanks to de Blasio, and has witnessed 132 shootings in just the past ten days:

Our spineless leaders in City Hall and the City Council ­labored through all the familiar excuses and p.r. machinations: outrage at the lack of gun-control laws; scorn for an ineffective New York Police Department; talk of the depressive effects of coronavirus lockdowns. Titanically unaware, they refuse to ­accept that the guns and their owners never left New York — notwithstanding their impassioned claims that Gotham is still “the safest big city in America.”

Cold, and steely efficient, these guns had been hidden at the bottom of bureau drawers, behind radiators and in glove compartments, waiting patiently to be called into service. The first call to service followed bail “reform” in January. The effect of the misguided law was swift and terrifying.

Shootings surged 28 percent in the first 30 days. Empowered criminals learned quickly that carrying an illegal gun in the Big Apple was no longer a big deal. Those once-hidden handguns were now riding in waistbands, readily available, itching to hurl deadly projectiles at eyewatering speeds in a blaze of heat and smoke.

Some criminals began to ­behave as if they had a carry permit in their wallets. To be sure, not all of Gotham’s criminals were fully empowered — yet. Many still had the metaphorical scar tissue from an ­encounter with the plainclothes anti-crime units. So they ­remained cautious, ever wary of a plainclothes team silently ­descending on them.

The indefensible killing of George Floyd on May 25, however, set in motion a series of events that turned the criminals’ partial carry permits into full ones. In the June riots, 478 officers were injured, 198 police vehicles burned, police precincts were ­attacked and overrun.

In the wake of this carnage, and the destruction of almost 1,000 businesses, Mayor de Blasio, dim at best, swiftly instituted two policies. First, he eliminated the anti-crime units. Then he doubled down on July 1, erasing $1 billion from the NYPD’s crime-fighting budget overnight: a devastating one-two punch to the NYPD and law-abiding New Yorkers.

The criminal was now fully empowered, the thin blue line stretched to the breaking point.

Roger Stone’s Commutation: Completely Justified and Righteous

As expected, President Donald Trump commuted the sentence of Roger Stone Friday evening. – Naturally, liberals, leftists, socialist, Marxists and fascists – but I repeat myself – went nuts on Twitter. Here’s an example:

The person who wrote that drivel is actually a “legal analyst” for NBC News. Now you know why nothing NBC reports about legal matters is right. The morning of November 4 is going to be a really bad time for this guy, as he wakes up and realizes that he still has four more years of President Donald Trump to go.

Look, Roger Stone is not a choir boy. In fact, he’s a largely unsavory guy, a sleazy political operative, and in fact one the thousands of people who over the years helped to make the DC swamp such a horrible and corrupt place. But that doesn’t mean he should spend the rest of his life in prison. Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany did a fine job of explaining why in a written message sent out to the corrupt news media last night:

Today, President Donald J. Trump signed an Executive Grant of Clemency commuting the unjust sentence of Roger Stone, Jr.
Roger Stone is a victim of the Russia Hoax that the Left and its allies in the media perpetuated for years in an attempt to undermine the Trump Presidency.  There was never any collusion between the Trump Campaign, or the Trump Administration, with Russia.  Such collusion was never anything other than a fantasy of partisans unable to accept the result of the 2016 election.  The collusion delusion spawned endless and farcical investigations, conducted at great taxpayer expense, looking for evidence that did not exist.  As it became clear that these witch hunts would never bear fruit, the Special Counsel’s Office resorted to process-based charges leveled at high-profile people in an attempt to manufacture the false impression of criminality lurking below the surface.  These charges were the product of recklessness borne of frustration and malice.This is why the out-of-control Mueller prosecutors, desperate for splashy headlines to compensate for a failed investigation, set their sights on Mr. Stone.  Roger Stone is well known for his nearly 50 years of work as a consultant for high-profile Republican politicians, including President Ronald Reagan, Senator Bob Dole, and many others.  He is also well known for his outspoken support for President Donald J. Trump and opposition to Hillary Clinton.Mr. Stone was charged by the same prosecutors from the Mueller Investigation tasked with finding evidence of collusion with Russia.  Because no such evidence exists, however, they could not charge him for any collusion-related crime.  Instead, they charged him for his conduct during their investigation.  The simple fact is that if the Special Counsel had not been pursuing an absolutely baseless investigation, Mr. Stone would not be facing time in prison.

In addition to charging Mr. Stone with alleged crimes arising solely from their own improper investigation, the Mueller prosecutors also took pains to make a public and shameful spectacle of his arrest.  Mr. Stone is a 67-year-old man, with numerous medical conditions, who had never been convicted of another crime.  But rather than allow him to surrender himself, they used dozens of FBI agents with automatic weapons and tactical equipment, armored vehicles, and an amphibious unit to execute a pre-dawn raid of his home, where he was with his wife of many years.  Notably, CNN cameras were present to broadcast these events live to the world, even though they swore they were not notified—it was just a coincidence that they were there together with the FBI early in the morning.

Not only was Mr. Stone charged by overzealous prosecutors pursing a case that never should have existed, and arrested in an operation that never should have been approved, but there were also serious questions about the jury in the case.  The forewoman of his jury, for example, concealed the fact that she is a member of the so-called liberal “resistance” to the Trump Presidency.  In now-deleted tweets, this activist-juror vividly and openly attacked President Trump and his supporters.

Mr. Stone would be put at serious medical risk in prison.  He has appealed his conviction and is seeking a new trial.  He maintains his innocence and has stated that he expects to be fully exonerated by the justice system.  Mr. Stone, like every American, deserves a fair trial and every opportunity to vindicate himself before the courts.  The President does not wish to interfere with his efforts to do so.  At this time, however, and particularly in light of the egregious facts and circumstances surrounding his unfair prosecution, arrest, and trial, the President has determined to commute his sentence.  Roger Stone has already suffered greatly.  He was treated very unfairly, as were many others in this case.  Roger Stone is now a free man!

[End]

What the White House leaves out is the fact that Stone has been bankrupted by this despicable, Soviet-style persecution, forced to sell his home to pay his legal bills, and has been denied the right to make a living for over a year by the corrupt leftist judge in the case, Obama appointee Amy Berman Jackson.

This was not a fair trial – it is not how the American system of justice is supposed to function. Because of that undeniable reality, this commutation is completely justified.

Roger Stone is no threat to anyone, and it is fair to point out that the very same leftist nitwits who are wailing about this action on Twitter remained studiously silent when Barack Obama used his powers of pardon and commutation hundreds of times to free drug offenders and others who had committed violent crimes.

Enjoy your freedom, Mr. Stone, and don’t screw it up.

That is all.

Twitter Begins Move to De-Platform President Trump

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II

Don’t look now, but Twitter is beginning its move to de-platform the President. – Twitter took the first step towards what will almost certainly become an eventual de-platforming of President Trump’s account Wednesday. Check out the little blue blurb at the bottom of the tweets below:

Hilariously, clicking on the “Get the facts” note takes you to completely false articles by corrupt outlets like CNN on the matter of mail-in voting. But that’s what Twitter does.

Look, you should expect the President’s account to be banned completely well before the Republican National Convention in August. Twitter already moved to restrict paid political advertising on its platform when it became obvious that the Trump Campaign was miles ahead of the Democrats in the social media space. That’s what all of this Kabuki theatre over the past week between Morning Mika and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has been all about – they’ve just been setting the stage for the final act.

All of the social media platforms – Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, Instagram and all the rest – are completely in the tank for the Democrats and in the pocket of the ChiCom government. They are going to do whatever they can to get China Joe Biden – or whomever the Democrats actually nominate – elected this year.

As I was writing this, President Trump responded to Twitter’s action by – you guessed it – issuing more tweets:

That’s great, but it’s a little late in the game. In August of 2018, as it was becoming apparent that the Democrats had a chance to take over control of the House of Representatives, I wrote a piece advising Mr. Trump to channel his inner Teddy Roosevelt, and use his second two years in office to employ the nation’s anti-trust laws against the social media monopolies.

Here, in part, is what I wrote at that time:

So, imagine this scenario if you will:  Executives from ExxonMobil, BP, Shell, Chevron and Total all get together in a room talk about implementing the exact same gasoline price increase on the following day.  Then they all go out the following day and implement that exact same gasoline price increase while publicly admitting what they’re doing.

Those folks are in a hell of a lot of trouble under our nation’s anti-trust laws, wouldn’t you say?  Yes, if you have firing synapses in your cranial cavity, that’s exactly what you would say.

It wouldn’t matter if you like those oil companies or hate those oil companies, and it doesn’t matter if you like their customers or hate their customers.  Those companies are all publicly traded corporations who together control a major share of the U.S. gasoline market, and are thus prevented from engaging in monopolistic behavior, such as fixing prices for their products.  Thus, assuming the Department of Justice actually performed its job – which is always a crap shoot these days, I admit – those executives would soon find themselves on the receiving end of subpoenas soon likely to be followed by indictments.

Now, imagine another scenario:  It’s January 2019 and President Donald Trump finds himself and his administration under unending assault from congress, where the Democrat Party has managed to win a thin majority in the House of Representatives in the mid-term elections.  No, I don’t think this is likely to actually happen, but play along with me here.

The President is very frustrated because, as hard as it has been to get congress to do anything with its current thin GOP majorities in both houses, it is now impossible to get anything through the new #Resistance Democrat House.  The Democrats are in the process of trying to impeach and remove him from office, but won’t be able to come up with the votes in either house of congress to do so, as their own house members who won traditionally GOP districts in 2018 are reluctant to adopt that fool’s errand as their own.

So, it’s gridlock in Washington, DC, and Donald Trump is not a guy who deals well with gridlock.  He’s got two more years to get stuff done before his re-election bid rolls around, and is left with accomplishing things either through the regulatory process, executive orders or, if he can get his attorney general to act, the courts. What to do?

It may be that several giant social media corporations just answered that question on Monday.  The leaders of Apple, Facebook, YouTube, Spotify and Pinterest all got together and decided – at the persistent urging of CNN and various leading Democrats – to remove radio talk show host and conspiracy promoter Alex Jones from their platforms permanently.  The same kind of monopolistic action denying an American citizen access to their platforms and the commerce he derives from them on the same day.  Classic corporate trust behavior.

Now, it doesn’t matter if you like these giant corporations or hate these giant corporations; it doesn’t matter if you like Alex Jones or hate Alex Jones.  These companies are publicly-traded corporations who cannot by law band together for the purpose of restraint of trade or denial of access to any class of people, and that’s exactly what they did to Mr. Jones on Monday.  And it’s what these huge corporations, along with their sister social media platform, Twitter, have been doing to conservative users of their products for years now.  This is why, whenever they get caught denying access to conservatives, they always blame the issue on some sort of “glitch.”

And it’s not just trust behavior that they are executing here.  They’re also in blatant violation of campaign finance laws.  In a very real way, their actions amount to massive in-kind political contributions to the Democrat Party.  They apparently believe they are above the law, and if Jeff Sessions turns out to be the worthless swamp skunk many believe him to be, they could be right, at least for the time being.

But if the elections go the wrong way this November, President Trump will likely be looking for ways to keep on #Winning on domestic policy during his second two years in office.  Playing a Teddy Rooseveltian Trust Buster to the foil of these increasingly radicalized and abusive Big Tech corporations might have a real appeal to him, and could end up being just the ticket to taking the congress back in 2020 and winning a second term in office.

Stranger things have happened.  Hell, stranger things happen every day, don’t they?

[End]

Yes, stranger things do happen every day, and they are only going to keep growing ever more strange in the social media space until the Justice Department begins to take real actions to restrain them from their blatant interference in our national elections. DOJ has been taking some baby steps in this direction over the past two years, but now it’s time to bring out some big guns.

Because, left to their own devices, these social media monopolies will do everything they can to swing this election China’s way. It’s as certain as that sun you see rising every morning in the east.

That is all.

Liberals go Crazy Because Gorsuch says…Merry Christmas????

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

Every time you get to thinking the liberal outrage mob on Twitter cannot possibly get any more stupid or insane than they already are, they go out and prove you wrong. – Supreme Court justice Neil Gorsuch appeared on Fox and Friends Tuesday morning to promote some new book he has written, something fellow justices like Sonya Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg have also done in recent years on CNN and MSNBC.

Justice Gorsuch’s appearance would have likely gone unremarked but for the fact that, as he was signing off, he wished the program’s hosts a “Merry Christmas.”

Predictably, the anti-Christian bigots in the liberal outrage mob on Twitter went utterly and completely berserk over that one. As a public service to our readers, we here at the Campaign Update have herewith compiled some of the dumbest, nastiest and just plain idiotic…er…est tweets issued by the liberal lunatics, just so you don’t have to dive into the Twitter cesspool yourselves.

 

So, here we go, starting with this from Alinskyite Lawfare lawyer Susan Hennessey, who says it is “weird” for a SC justice to promote a book in one phrase, then acknowledges that other SC justices have done the same exact thing in her very next thought. No wonder she’s a CNN contributor:

Then there’s some guy named (checks tweet) Sean Kent, who apparently is some sort of half-assed comic, who is outraged that Justice Gorsuch had the temerity to utter the phrase “Merry Christmas” during this, the Christmas season of the year:

Oh, but it just gets better…

Here’s little growth-stunted, bald-headed Brian Stelter exhibiting his consistent utter lack of any self-awareness whatsoever:

…and here is Garrett Ventry informing Mr. pea-brain why his tweet is so utterly clueless:

Oh.

But it gets better still. Here is some person named “Molly McKew” who claims she is some sort of foreign policy expert, brainlessly wondering why Justice Gorsuch is, um…..well, you can read it:

Oh, I dunno, Molly, maybe because HE WAS INVITED???? Good lord.

Ok, y’all, hide the kids now, because this clown, who claim he is both – BOTH, I tell you – an “award-winning artist” and…wait for it…oh, you have to wait for this one… a “SPORTS CARD STORE OWNER” [!!!!!] is all, like, totes angry about it all:

Yeah! You tell ’em, Tony Posnansky, you sports card store owner and award-winning artist, you!

*sigh*

But believe it or not, we aren’t done yet.

Ladies and gentlemen (or whatever your preferred pronouns might be – I personally prefer “Tex” and “Bubba”), I give you a person who calls herself “Mayday Mindy”, whose Twitter profile actually, really and truly reads:

I say what People Think🤨Anti Trump🍊🐶2 dogs 3 kids❤️😎I was the artsy semi cute cool girl

 

Oh, cooooooools, Mindy! LULZ! TOTES! You rule!
*sigh*
Anyway, here’s what the artsy semi cute cool girl had to say about the Justice’s appearance on Fox and Friends:

I know – hardly seemed worth all the build-up, right? Right.

But don’t worry, I have saved the very best of the Twitter Outrage Mob’s outrage-fest for last. Friends, I give you the stylings of one Amee Vanderpool, or as she calls herself on Twitter, @girlsreallyrule:

Image

So, there you have it: In today’s liberal Twitter Outrage Mob Culture, the phrase 98% of you grew up saying throughout your entire childhoods – “Merry Christmas” – is now officially nothing more than a “talking point of the GOP,” and a “Republican narrative.” No more “Merry Christmas” for Democrats no sir, er, ma’am, er, it, er…nevermind.

You seriously could never make these people up, folks. Never in a million years.

That is all.
