Friday News Roundup: Another October, Another FBI Scam to Influence an Election

Another October, another bit of “right-wing terrorist” horse manure from the FBI. – It’s amazing how this always seems to happen in the runup to a major election, isn’t it?

The FBI announced yesterday that it had made arrests of a dozen “right-wing terrorists” who were supposedly plotting to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer and “overthrow” the government of Michigan. The announcement and arrests of these people, who are actually anarchists – left wing terrorists, not right wing – of course come just in time for the media to use them as a tool to try to influence the upcoming election in favor of the Democrats, which of course is always the agency’s goal.

Here’s a video of one of the ringleaders, calling President Trump a “tyrant” and “an enemy”, but you are supposed to believe he and his fellow anarchists are actually Trump supporters:

Who are you gonna believe – the FBI or your lyin’ ears and eyes?

Thus, the sorry trail of FBI efforts to act as a tool of the Deep State to influence every major election cycle since 2016 remains intact, from the FBI-led Spygate effort in 2016 to the transparently mispresented case against registered Democrat Cesar Cayoc and agency coordination with the Mueller-led coup effort in 2018, and now to this. As a political tool, the FBI is first rate. As a law enforcement agency, it is as worthless as a coronavirus mask or an airport x-ray machine.

The absolute destruction of this once-great American institution will forever be the legacy of Robert Mueller, James Comey and Christopher Wray.

Speaking of Creepy Joe McWifeMolester… – Here is what the corrupt, worthless press corps allowed him to get away with on Thursday:

“You’ll know my opinion on court packing when the election is over.”

Who gets away with this? We are talking about one branch of the federal government fundamentally restructuring another branch, a clear violation of the Constitution’s separation of powers, yet our worthless press corps can’t be bothered to hold his or Kamala Harris’s feet to the fire and force an answer to this crucial question.

Chris Wallace didn’t really even make an effort during the first debate, and Susan Page put up only slightly more fight with Harris in the vice presidential debate. The pack of useless media sheep who follow his campaign around are too bullied by Biden’s handlers to bother to even ask the question, much less follow-up with a demand that he answer.

A few fake journalists like Jon Karl tut-tutted on their twitter accounts about Biden’s latest dodge, but that’s just a lame effort to burnish their “objectivity” credentials, and has no real meaning.

If Biden and Harris get to Election Day without having provided a direct answer to this crucial question for or society, it will possibly represent the single largest failure of journalism in American history.

But then, it’s a dead profession, so why would we expect anything different?

Speaking of dead professions, there’s the U.S. Congress. – I’m old enough to remember when congress actually wrote bills, passed laws, authorized actual appropriations and stuff like that. Those were the days, huh? Yeah…good times, good times.

Anyway, after two decades of communist Democrat “leaders” like Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and Harry Reid, it has become difficult to understand exactly what the real function of the House and Senate even are anymore. They’ve only passed an actual budget one time in the past 15 years or so; neither house really attempts to lead on any issue of public import; and the only new “laws” we find ourselves subjected to these days come to us in the form of unconstitutional edicts from governors and extra-constitutional decisions by the courts.

Other than passing a couple of massive, China virus-related stimulus bills mid-year, pretty much the only thing the House of Representatives has done during 2020 is to pass meaningless, posturing resolutions like the one condemning “Q” last week, or maybe it was early this week, I forget which.

The other favorite communist Democrat tactic is to introduce bills for purely political effect that they know will not go anywhere. Today, San Fran Nan will stage such an event for her willing press accomplices in which she and Cong. Kamie Rasikin will introduce a bill to remove President Trump under the terms of the 25th Amendment:

Image

Yeah, that’s not how the 25th Amendment works, folks, but the corrupt news media will play along like it’s something serious nonetheless, because that is the role it plays for the communist Democrat Party.

So tiresome.

Finally, talk about your unwanted outreach, there is this little gem from Newsweek, discussing a recent statement from Vladimir Putin about his correct belief that Russian communists and the Democrat Party have a lot of “shared beliefs.”

From the Newsweek story:

Russian President Vladimir Putin has attempted to mark a positive resemblance between Democratic presidential candidate, former Vice President Joe Biden, and Soviet communists in a wide-ranging interview with the Rossiya TV channel, released Wednesday as the 2020 vice presidential candidates prepared to debate.

The president said the Kremlin would be open to working with whoever sits in the Oval Office in 2021, despite U.S. intelligence reports indicating that Russia is trying to undermine Biden in the same way it did Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in 2016.

But Putin linked Biden to communist ideology during the interview. While Putin—a former party member, KGB colonel and intelligence operative—made the comparison in positive terms, his comment lines up with GOP talking points about the Biden-Kamala Harris ticket. Trump and his allies have tried to frame their opponents proposing a far-left, extremist platform dictated by the progressive wing of the Democratic Party.

[End]

Oh, you don’t say.

That is all.

Putin Is Ready To Cut Oil Supply, But Demand Destruction Still Grows

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Friday that, after sending the oil markets into a massive crash a month ago by blowing up the OPEC+ exports limitation agreement, his country is now ready to work with OPEC and other countries to implement far deeper cuts to crude production than OPEC+ had ever envisioned.

Speaking in a televised video conference, Putin proposed an arrangement that would result in removing 10 million barrels of crude oil per day from global supply. As reported by the Khaleej Times, “Putin’s dramatic change of tack from his unyielding stance of non-cooperation with the Opec in further output cuts came in the wake of a truce brokered by US President Donald Trump ahead of the upcoming Opec plus meeting scheduled for April 6.” The price for West Texas Intermediate closed at $28.34 per barrel on Friday, up by 40% since Wednesday, when news of Trump’s engagement with Putin and Saudi leader Mohammed bin Salman became public.

Has President Trump, the famous deal-maker, worked a deal that will save the U.S. domestic oil and gas industry? Let’s don’t get ahead of ourselves. While a global deal that would remove 10 millions barrel from daily oil supply would certainly help firm up oil prices, we have to remember that the effort by Russia and Saudi Arabia to flood the market only impacted the supply side of a two-sided equation. Crude prices had already dropped by more than 30% into the low-$40 range in early March before OPEC+ blew up, thanks to massive global demand destruction caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

With the U.S. intentionally shutting down its own economy during March in a strategy to slow the spread of the virus, that demand destruction has only intensified over the past 30 days, with some projecting as much as 25% of world-wide demand for crude oil having been lost, or about 25 million barrels per day. We should also realize that, with so much anticipation now focused on it, if the upcoming emergency meeting of the OPEC+ countries should somehow fail to bear fruit along the lines proposed by Putin, then the price will come crashing back down.

And even if a new deal does get done, it will only address one side of the equation. There will still be much work to be done to return the domestic oil and gas industry to some level of health.

The Democrat/Media Propaganda Complex Moves the Goal Posts in the Wake of Mueller’s Failed Coup

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

The talkin’ points, they are a-changin’… – Ok, so here’s the drill: Now that Robert Mueller has failed to carry out the coup d’etat that the Democrats and the entirety of our fake news media have hoped and dreamed of for two solid years now, the goal posts have shifted.

Now, Robert Mueller is a bad guy, a guy who both Bug-eyed Adam Schiff and Jabba The Nadler have promised to subpoena to appear before their own committees, which will now lead the Witch Hunt into the future at the behest of San Fran Nan and the editorial boards at the New York Times and Washington Post. Furthermore, the Attorney General of the United States – William Barr – and his Deputy Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein, are now the two newest subjects to be portrayed as Russian agents by our fake news media. A regular Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale (all you Millennials will have to Google that reference), these two.

That nasty odor you found wafting from your television screens anytime you were tuned into MSNBC or CNN this weekend was a combination of sulphur and desperation. These people are literally doing the devil’s work against our nation’s survival, and their rising panic level came across the tube in spades as the weekend progressed, peaking on Sunday afternoon with the realization that Bob Mueller, the man on whom they had counted to be their collective savior, turned out to be not quite up to the job.

So the talking points had to shift, the goal posts must now move, and they all, acting almost as a single evil organism (I smell a remake of “The Blob” coming soon), latched onto the insignificant fact that Mueller did not outright “clear” President Donald Trump of “obstruction of justice” as their next thin lifeline. Since Mueller did not “clear” Trump, but the Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General (a Trump hater who we now know without any doubt at all literally attempted to frame the President) did, why, they must be acting on behalf of PUTIN!!!!!!

See the logic? No? Ok, neither do I.

Look, these are Democrats and Democrat media activists we’re talking about here – logic has no place in anything they do. If these people were vampires (and how can we really be sure that Brian Stelter and Katie Tur aren’t?), logic would be their garlic and truth their sunlight.

But, just for the sake of argument, the glaring problems with their new line of talking points are obvious:

  • Robert Mueller was acting as a prosecutor. Prosecutors do not “clear” people – they either find evidence of wrongdoing that would support a prosecution, or they do not. Mueller did not.
  • The entire case for “obstruction” against President Trump originates with a presumption that he fired bad cop James Comey – an action even Rosenstein supported, and which every Democrat in Washington had called for – in order to prevent Comey from investigating Trump’s “collusion” with Putin.
  • But Mueller found zero evidence that any such “collusion” took place – said so right there in his report.
  • So, how in the hell would anyone “obstruct justice” by trying to cover up a crime that, by the prosecutor’s own admission, DID NOT HAPPEN?

Thus, the lack of any evidence of obstruction is not a mere opinion expressed by Barr and Rosenstein, it is a metaphysical fact.  Period. Hard stop.

Let’s just close with film of the celebration in the White House last night…

Trump Puts the Lie to “Russia Collusion” With Venezuela Actions

The Afternoon Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

In case you’re still thinking  this whole “Trump is Putin’s puppet” narrative has legs, well, think again. Vladimir Putin is a decidedly unhappy hombre’ today, and it all has to do with the ongoing efforts by the Trump Administration to depose his real puppet, Venezuelan socialist thug Nicolas Maduro.

Earlier today, National Security Advisor John Bolton and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin announced the U.S. would place severe sanctions on Maduro’s regimen and Venezuela’s national oil company, PdVSA:

Steve Mnuchin:  “As a result of today’s action, all property and interests in property of PdVSA subject to U.S. jurisdiction are blocked, and U.S. persons are generally prohibited from engaging in transactions with them.”

At his press conference, Mnuchin said these actions basically place a quarantine on $7 billion in PdVSA assets in the U.S., and would represent $11 billion in foregone oil exports to the U.S. over the next 12 months. Mnuch said the U.S. decided to target PdVSA because it has long been used by the Maduro regime as “a vehicle for corruption.”:

“A variety of schemes have been designed to embezzle billions of dollars from PdVSA for the personal gain of corrupt Venezuelan officials and businessmen.  For example, a 2014 currency exchange scheme was designed to embezzle and launder around $600 million from PdVSA, money obtained through bribery and fraud.  By May 2015, the conspiracy had allegedly doubled in amount, to $1.2 billion embezzled from PdVSA.  Abraham Edgardo Ortega, a Venezuelan national who was PdVSA’s executive director of financial planning, pled guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering for his role in the billion-dollar international scheme to launder funds embezzled from PdVSA.”

The ongoing, aggressive efforts by the Trump Administration to depose Maduro put the lie to Democrat/media allegations that the U.S. President is some sort of “puppet” or ally to Russian President Vladimir Putin. Putin has, over the last several years, invested billions of dollars in efforts to prop up the Maduro regime, often taking ownership of Venezuela’s oil assets in return.

As Reuters reported in 2017, Putin’s Russia had by that time already made at least $17 billion in such investments, a total that has only grown in the intervening two years. Thus, any sanctions on Venezuelan oil assets strike directly at the Russian Bear.

Putin’s spokesman at the U.N. made Russia’s displeasure with the efforts to oust Maduro very clear, as Russia led the effort to deny a unanimous U.N. Security Council vote in favor of an effort by the U.S. and European Union to impose international sanctions on Maduro, and endorse opposition leader Juan Guaido.

All of which adds up to completely refute the ongoing joint efforts by the Democrat Party and our fake news media to portray President Trump as a Russian agent.  These people really are shameless.

That is all.

Renewed Media Focus on Russia Means the Border Issue is Going Badly for the Democrats

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

You know they’re in trouble when they start recycling fake news stories. – The fake editors at the Wall Street Journal have become so desperate they now feel the need to recycle Trump outrage stories in their unending efforts to keep the Democrat rabble roused.

Over the weekend the Journal recycled the story from a year and a half ago that President Donald Trump did not allow note-takers in his first meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in mid-2017. This is not news – this is a story that the entirety of the fake news media obsessed about endlessly in the wake of that long-ago meeting.

The lack of note-takers in the meeting between the leaders of these two countries is also nothing unprecedented or even unusual, as the fake reporters and editors well know. Hell, Barack Obama and John Kerry held secret meetings with the Mullahs in Iran for almost two years with no one taking notes, then shipped $1.6 billion in hard currency to them in the back of a jet, and no one at the Journal said boo about it. Yet the Journal’s fake reporters make it seem as if this is something only Donald Trump would have ever imagine doing.

As Trump pointed out at the time, he didn’t want anyone else in the meeting because he didn’t want the details of the discussion leaking out to the media. At the time in question, the President was so plagued with leaks that he was unable to hold telephone conversations with foreign leaders without the details being leaked and appearing in the fake media an hour later. Portraying this as anything else is a conscious lie, and a disgrace to the Journal and to the dying journalistic profession, such as it exists in America today.

The Journal’s disgrace follows on the heels of other fake media reports in the last few days about Trump and Putin/Russia, as the media/Democrat axis of disinformation desperately attempts to shift public attention away from the whole border controversy, which was not playing well for the Democrats as they vacationed at taxpayer expense on the beaches of Puerto Rico over the weekend.

Here are a couple of other headlines we saw from fake news usual suspects in the past few days:

FBI Opened Inquiry Into Whether Trump Was Secretly Working on Behalf of RussiaNew York Times

Trump has Concealed Details of his Face-to-Face Encounters With Putin From Senior Officials in AdministrationWashington Post

The Times’ reporters managed to write 1,500 words or so on their subject without ever mentioning the fact that the “inquiry” in question was ordered in early 2017 by then-acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe.  Gosh, wonder why?

Could it be that the fake journalists decided to leave that key fact out of their story because McCabe is himself a disgrace, a snake who was fired for his repeated efforts to mislead internal FBI investigators and currently finds himself the subject of criminal investigation? Yeah, it could be that. That’s where the smart money is, anyway.

Look, McCabe was clearly a central figure in the corrupt DOJ/FBI cabal that attempted to fix the 2016 election for Hillary Clinton, abusing the FISA process to illegally spy on the Trump Campaign and Transition Team. That Cabal did its best to frame the President into an obstruction of justice charge that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has, after 20 months of trying, been unable to substantiate. Of course, this despicable deep state skunk had an “inquiry” going against the duly-elected President of the United States – he had been working to try to bring the man down for a year by then.

The Post story is just sort of an extension of the Journal’s bit of news-fakery, 1,000 words about pretty much nothing other than a President plagued by leaks not knowing who he can trust, trying to keep everything he says off of the front page of the Washington Post. Of course he isn’t sharing every detail of his conversations with Putin or anyone else with some of his senior officials, especially with those who no doubt served as the anonymous “sources” for this very story.

These are all nothing-burger stories planted by agenda-driven “sources”, written by agenda-driven fake reporters and approved by agenda-driven editors for the sole purpose of creating a new narrative.

Think about the timing of them: They all came right at the time several hundred thousand federal workers were about to miss their first paycheck due to the ongoing partial government shutdown. The reliable fake-newsers at CNN dummied up a fake poll over the weekend (because of course they did) that purports to show most Americans blaming the President for the shutdown, but the issue is obviously not playing well for the Democrats.  Otherwise, we would not be seeing this frenzied rash of Russia-related fake news from the Democrats’ media support system.

The key to remember here is that the Democrats and their media agents are always pushing a narrative based on their polling and focus group data. The fact that they are back to pushing this fake Trump/Russia narrative at this particular point in time tells us that they are very concerned with how the whole border security issue is playing for them. If the issue were playing well for the Democrats, the media would be pushing that narrative 24 hours a day.

All of this is why, if you’ve been expecting President Trump to be the first to blink in the government shutdown standoff with San Fran Nan and Chuck Schumer, you should probably re-calibrate your thinking.

That is all.

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

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Just another day in Trump Derangement Syndrome America.

The Democrats and the Media Want War With Russia. Why?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

When I saw this headline, I assumed it had to be about Peter Strzok. – Man arrested for contacting ex-girlfriend 200 times per day.

Let me guess – because you’re an idiot and an awful mother? – A British fake journalist named Rebecca Schiller wrote a piece for the UK Guardian titled “Why I took my 8 year-old daughter on an anti-Trump protest.”  Good grief.

Tired of all this Winning yet? – A few minutes ago, the President tweeted the following:

Four percent economic growth.  Four percent unemployment.  ISIS is about 98 percent dead.  The price of gasoline is going down because the President leaned on the Saudis to put more crude oil on the open market.  The Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea has been neutralized.  The U.S. is now back on a path towards a productive relationship with Russia.  The Supreme Court will soon have a working majority that will consistently respect the U.S. Constitution for the first time in two generations.

All this and so much more has been achieved in just 20 months, and it is driving the Democrat/fake news media axis of propaganda utterly mad.

Profiles in how not to do public relations, courtesy of MGM Resorts. – The families of the victims of last October’s Las Vegas massacre have a real reason to be outraged, as they were all sued on Monday by the raving morons who run MGM Resorts, which of course owns the Mandalay Bay Casino Resort from which the Vegas gunman killed or wounded more than 500 people.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up:

“The company, which owns Mandalay Bay and the Route 91 Harvest festival venue, argues that it cannot be held liable for Oct. 1 deaths, injuries or other damages, adding that any claims against MGM parties “must be dismissed,” according to complaints filed Friday in Nevada and California.”

Mind you, this is the same Mandalay Bay whose miserably incompetent security allowed the shooter to spirit something like 20 huge suitcases filled with guns and ammo up to his room over a period of several days using the freaking freight elevator, for crying out loud.  For this company to now claim that it has no liability in this mass shooting is just despicable, and so unbelievably stupid from a PR aspect that I honestly hope they get put out of business for it.  A pox on all their houses.

Oh, and here’s another tweet that President Trump just posted that’s worth mentioning:

This tweet is worth mentioning because it’s absolutely true, pointing to a reality that constitutes one of the most frightening aspects of our current political dynamic in Washington.  It’s not just that the President’s opponents oppose his outreach to Putin and Russia in a quest for political advantage – it’s far more than that.

For two years now I’ve been periodically writing about the obvious desire among the Democrat Party, most of the major news media and the warmonger faction among the Republicans in congress to actively seek a shooting war with Russia.  It is hard to grasp what the motivation behind this desire actually is, but there is no question have been viscerally opposed to any effort by President Trump to establish a more productive working relationship with the world’s only other major nuclear superpower.

This attitude and rhetorical dynamic came into focus when it became obvious that Donald Trump would be the GOP presidential nominee.  Given that Trump was the only candidate advocating for better relations with Russia, and that Putin was at the time still interfering in the affairs of the Ukraine, it would have made sense for the Pantsuit Princess and her amen chorus in the fake news media to develop counter talking points to that position.

But that’s not what happened.  What happened instead was the creation of an unending and steadily escalating drumbeat of rank hostility towards Russia from the same quarters of the Washington DC establishment that had just a few years before applauded the Coughing Crook for her juvenile “Reset Button” outreach to Putin and Russia.

This hostile clamor against any positive outreach towards Putin and Russia has now grown into claims of “treason” hurled at the President of the United States from noted Obama-era bad actors like John Brennan, James Clapper, Jim Comey and the Fainting Felon herself.  The leftwing rag Politico even published a piece on Monday openly advocating for the U.S. to declare war on Russia.  Breathtaking.

Hey, wait a minute:  Think about what other Russia-related events those people all have in common:

  • The “hacking” of the DNC servers, which the DNC (then run by the Clinton Campaign) refused to allow the FBI to properly investigate, prompting then-FBI Director James Comey to shrug his shoulders and say, “oh, ok.”; and
  • The Uranium One transaction, in which 20% of U.S. uranium reserves were sold to a Putin front Russian company in exchange for hundreds of millions of dollars flowing into the Clinton Foundation;

We now know that the Uranium One transaction was signed off on by much of the senior leadership of the Obama Administration at the time.  And of course, we know that the Clinton/Obama amen chorus in our fake news media ignored and even helped to facilitate the transaction with justifying coverage of it over the last 7 years.

Putin knows exactly what happened in both of those cases – is it any wonder, then, that all of these people would be horrified at the thought of President Trump holding a private meeting with Putin for 90 minutes in a neutral country?  Can we doubt that these people would gladly go to outright war with Russia in order to avoid real accountability for their actions?

This is the only explanation I can come up with for the years-long, outright advocacy for going to war with a country that has not attacked the United States in any real way – Russia has been meddling in U.S. elections for 50 years, so please don’t bring up their meddling in 2016 – and which possesses a nuclear arsenal comparable to our own.

This is not just “Trump Derangement Syndrome”, though that does play a big part in it.  More to the point, this is “Self-Preservation Syndrome” on the part of a pack of really bad people who have betrayed our country on such a grand scale that it is almost unimaginable.  If these seem like really desperate people to you, well, that’s likely because they are really desperate people.

Just another day in the truth will ultimately come out America.

This Past Week was President Trump Keeping his Promises

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Well, the day of decision is here, the time to decide whether you are going to stick with President Donald Trump all the way.  The fake news media and the Democrats, along with establishment Republican warmongers like John McCain, Jeff Flake and Bob Corker, are throwing everything they have at the President and his supporters, now going full ahead with the contention that supporting the man who was elected in 2016 is tantamount to treason.

The fuse that touched off the latest – and most intense to date – explosion of leftist, establishment, globalist heads in Washington was, of course, the President’s press conference performance as his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin came to a close.  Mr. Trump’s sin, as I pointed out last night, was to publicly question the veracity of the allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. elections contained in indictments brought down by a proven liar and stonewaller, Rod Rosenstein, and a Special Counsel’s office filled with Clinton/Obama activist hacks.  Those indictments were ostensibly based on information compiled by an FBI led by the likes of proven liars like Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok and James Comey.

Hard to imagine why anyone would question the work product of such a sterling cast of characters, right?

If the U.S. intelligence community wants to command the respect of the American people, then it might be a good idea for it to stop working against the interests and the will of the American people.  It might be a good idea to stop sending clear, practiced, transparent liars like Rosenstein and Strzok up to represent it in open congressional hearings.  It might be a good idea to start complying with information requests from congressional committees trying to perform the oversight responsibilities mandated to them in the Constitution.  It might have been a good idea for Mr. Mueller to avoid filling his staff with partisan hacks.

In order to command respect, these myriad alphabet agencies should work on earning it.  What a concept.

But the presser with Putin was just the conclusion of a week filled with events and presidential actions and statements that the leftist, globalist, DC establishment detests, actions that President Trump promised to take throughout the 2016 campaign that ended with his victory over the establishment’s preferred sock puppet, Hillary Clinton.  Those actions included the President pointing out the reality, in clear and blunt terms, that NATO is a long-outdated and costly organization populated mainly by deadbeat European countries who refuse to fulfill their financial obligations.

Those actions included calling out Germany for agreeing to partner with Russia – the ostensible “threat” against which NATO is supposedly there to defend – on a multi-billion dollar natural gas pipeline project.  Those actions included blunt and honest talk about the long abuse of unfair tariffs on U.S. goods by EU nations, and their desire to continue their practice.

Those actions included the President talking about U.S./Russia cooperation with our allies in Israel to ensure Iranian troops and militia in Syria are kept away from the Golan Heights.  They also included Trump’s ongoing commitment to bring our military personnel home from the Syrian hellhole once ISIS has been wiped off the face of the earth, another cooperative effort with Russia that is about 98% complete.  And finally, they included conciliatory public statements towards Putin and Russia (we can be sure he was more forceful and pointed with Putin during their private meeting) in an effort to begin establishing an actual, productive working relationship with the world’s other major nuclear power.

Again, what a concept.

Throughout his 2016 campaign, Mr. Trump proved he was a disciple of the likes of George Washington and Dwight Eisenhower, warning against the needless perpetuation of our military ventures all over the world, many of whose roots go all the way back to World War II.  I end up saying this so often in these Campaign Updates, but I’ll say this again:  None of the things President Trump said and did over this past week in Europe should have come as any surprise at all to anyone who actually has a desire to understand him.  Which of course excludes all Democrats and fake news reporters and warmongering GOP senators.

This is Donald Trump keeping his campaign promises.  He made them repeatedly and without nuance – because he’s pretty much incapable of nuance, after all – and he fully intends to carry them out, just as he has gone about carrying out all of his other campaign promises.

To a large extent, it is Trump’s hyper-focus on keeping the promises he made to the American people that makes him such a foreign, almost alien-seeming entity to the corrupt, globalist DC establishment and fake news media.  They have all become so accustomed to having politicians who say all sorts of stuff to get elected, but then come to DC and just bend to the will of the embedded deep state that they just don’t know how to react to anyone whose behavior doesn’t conform to the DC Borg’s hive mind.

Everything President Trump said and did over this past week were things he promised to do, repeatedly and clearly, throughout the 2016 campaign that got him elected.  The corrupt, globalist DC establishment is incredibly upset that it cannot contain him, and is now refocusing its sights not only on the President, but on his supporters as well.

Supporting Donald Trump was never going to be an easy thing, because he was elected to clean out the greatest den of corruption and sleaze ever created by American society.  He has made an amazing amount of progress in a very short period of time, but there is so much more that remains to be done.  The more he pushes, the harder the deep state establishment and its media minions will fight back, so this is only going to become harder still.

If you abandon him now, they win.  It’s really that simple.

That is all.

Today Was a Breathtaking Display of the Democrats’ and Media’s Rank Hypocrisy

The Evening Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

In 2003, after it had become apparent that the U.S. and allied forces who had invaded Iraq to remove Saddam Hussein were not going to find the vaunted weapons of mass destruction that served as the pretense for justifying the invasion, the fake U.S. and international news media, in coordination with the Democrat Party, demonized the U.S. intelligence community for its apparent failure to properly assess the threat.  The employees and leaders of the CIA, DIA, FBI, NSA and all the myriad other alphabet agencies that make up the U.S. intel apparatus were called incompetent, deceptive, even traitors by the fake media/Democrat propaganda complex for leading our country into an unjustified war.

Of course, no apologies were forthcoming when it later became obvious that Saddam had indeed had a stockpile of WMDs that he spirited off to Syria in advance of the allied invasion.  The left never apologizes for anything since no one in the fake news media ever demands it of them.

Those of us who defended the intel community at the time were also called all sorts of names, including but not limited to “traitors”, by these same Democrats and their media agents.  Fifteen years later, many of us are old enough to still remember all of that.

So it was a bit of a marvel today to see the fake news media/Democrat propaganda complex – including many of the same players from 2003 – demonize not the U.S. intel community, but President Donald Trump and his supporters after Trump criticized those myriad alphabet agencies during his press conference with Vladimir Putin.  In 2003, we were all traitors if we didn’t condemn the U.S. intel community, and today we’re all traitors if we do criticize them.

And this is all about Russia.  Many of us are also old enough to remember way back in 2012, when Barack Obama snarkily told Mitt Romney during a debate that “The 1980s called and they want their foreign policy back.”  That was Obama’s response to Romney’s contention that Russia constituted one of America’s foremost foreign adversaries.

Wait, isn’t that what the Democrats are all screaming today?  I know, right?

Yes, it is, but this was in 2012, barely a year after Obama, Hillary, Comey and Mueller had all participated in the selling of 20% of America’s uranium reserves to a Russian company that was just a front for Vladimir Putin, so the Democrats in those days felt the need to pretend we have no issues with Russia.  Six years later, they know that Putin knows everything about what happened back then and during the 2016 elections, and now feel desperate to de-legitimize him in the public’s mind in case he starts talking.

So now Putin and Russia are almost our awfulest, worstest enemies in the current media/Democrat talking point manual, just below President Trump, who is in fact our premier awfulest, worstest enemy.  Because President Trump also knows everything about what happened back then and during the 2016 elections, and well, he’s the President of the United States and will presumably at some point demand that Jeff Sessions and the Justice Department do something about it.  Make sense?

So, when President Trump said in the press conference that Putin made a “forceful” denial of Russian intervention in those 2016 elections, that is suddenly the worst thing that’s ever, ever, ever happened in all of American history going back to Columbus.

But hey, it was no big deal at all when Barack Obama, after meeting with Putin in 2016 and raising the subject of meddling with him, said of Putin’s denials that “He denies it. So the idea that somehow public shaming is gonna be effective, I think doesn’t read the thought process in Russia very well.”  Because back in 2016, all the fake reporters and Democrats assumed Hillary Clinton was going to win the election and whatever really did take place would just all be swept under the rug anyway.

But now it’s 2018 and Vladimir Putin knows everything that happened and Donald Trump knows everything that happened, and the fake reporters who helped facilitate it all and the Democrats who participated in it all are utterly, completely panicked and lashing out like never before.

And so you get tweets like this from Obama CIA Director and longtime communist voter John Brennan:

And this, from former Clinton advisor Peter Dau:

And this from supposedly bed-ridden John McCain, who was complicit in promoting the fake Trump Dossier during the 2016 campaign:

That statement, by the way, is at least 300 words long and was released within an hour after the end of the press conference.  Seems like a man with the energy to fully analyze an hour log press conference and whip out a 300-word statement in real time like that might also have the energy to travel to Washington and do his job.  But I digress.

At any rate, as so often happens, President Trump issued a tweet on this very subject as I was typing this piece.  Here it is:

But as I pointed out this morning, the fake news media, the Democrats and war mongers like Sen. McCain cannot have this “get along” nonsense happen – they all make their livings and control their power through the perpetuation of conflict and civil strife and violence.

Donald Trump is a 72 year-old multi-billionaire who decided to give up his retirement years in order to try to make life better for Americans.  Sometimes, it’s hard to imagine why he bothers.

Just another day in Donald Trump is doing his job for America.

That is all.

Trump and Putin Meet, DC Establishment Throws a Fit

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Yes, Virginia, the fake news media is the enemy of the people. – In an interview with CBS that aired on Sunday, President Donald Trump said this in response to a question about who are America’s “foes”?:

“Well, I think we have a lot of foes. I think the European Union is a foe, what they do to us in trade. Now, you wouldn’t think of the European Union, but they’re a foe. Russia is foe in certain respects. China is a foe economically, certainly they are a foe. But that doesn’t mean they are bad. It doesn’t mean anything. It means that they are competitive,” Mr. Trump said at his golf club in Turnberry, Scotland.

“I respect the leaders of those countries. But, in a trade sense, they’ve really taken advantage of us and many of those countries are in NATO and they weren’t paying their bills,” he added.

This very specific and very true statement about the long-time unfair tariff treatment of U.S. goods by the EU and others immediately got turned into headlines in pretty much every fake news outlet in the U.S. and Europe blaring “TRUMP CALLS EU THE ENEMY!!!!!!!”

This is just one in a long line of literally thousands of instances over the last 20 months of the fake news media intentionally lying about what this President actually said in a blatant, intentional effort to sow conflict and discord among the American people and drive another wedge between the U.S. and its allies, purely for the envisioned political gain of the Democrat Party.

Note to fake journalists:  If you don’t like being called the enemy of the people by the President of the United States, stop being the enemy of the people.

But the fake news media tactic failed, at least with EU Chancellor Donald Tusk, who responded to all the fake headlines by saying “America and the EU are best friends. Whoever says we are foes is spreading fake news.”

The media tactic predictably worked a little better with Germany, though, as Foreign Minister Heiko Maas responded with “We can no longer completely rely on the White House.  To maintain our partnership with the USA we must readjust it. The first clear consequence can only be that we need to align ourselves even more closely in Europe.”  Which is perfectly fine with President Trump, by the way.  If Germany thinks it can maintain its economy by doubling down on its unfair trade practices with the U.S. – by far its largest trading partner – and make up the difference from the comparatively tiny markets in Europe, then they should go for it.  They won’t like the end results, however.

Look, our fake news media in the United States is too dimwitted to ever understand it, and too captive to the Democrats to ever admit it, but President Trump’s entire interactions with the members of the EU on this trip – from his face to face meetings to his press statements and interviews to his messages sent out on Twitter – all had a single goal:  Negotiating better deals for America and Americans.  Better deals on trade, and a better deal within NATO, where almost all of our European “friends” have been wandering into America’s living room drunk and crashing on the American couch without paying  any bills for too damn long.

These European nations are not America’s “enemies”, and the President never said they were.  They have long been and continue to be our “foes” on matters of international trade, however, and deadbeats on paying the huge NATO tab.  Everything this President says is said with intent and for a purpose.  If Germany now thinks it can’t rely on the U.S. to continue footing the bill for its national defense – a bill we have footed for 73 long years now – that’s exactly what Mr. Trump wants Germany to think.

By the same token, while the fake news media has coordinated with Rod Rosenstein and Robert Mueller to poison the atmosphere for President Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin that is beginning as I type this piece, there is no real reason for Russia to be America’s “enemy,” either.  Russia will always be America’s “foe” – that dynamic is the product of a century of rank hostility by the old Soviet Union, corrupt actions by current Russian leadership and rank mis-management by every U.S. President since George H.W. Bush left office.

Making the situation even more difficult for the President, America’s political establishment and fake news media – including many war-mongering Republicans like John McCain – continue to seem intent upon forcing the U.S. ultimately into a shooting war with the Russian Republic, for reasons that continue to mystify many observers.  These people have been literally panicked at the very thought of a U.S. President attempting to establish a more productive relationship with his Russian counterpart.

As you watch the hysterical fake coverage of the summit, ponder why these people are so dead set against the United States having better, peaceful relations with Russia.  Ask yourself this question:  Where on the face of the earth is Russia anything resembling a real threat to America’s well-being?  Their nuclear arsenal is an obvious answer, but guess what?  Our own nuclear arsenal constitutes a real threat to the well-being of every Russian, too.  And guess what was the first thing President Trump said he wants to get out of this meeting in his opening statement this morning?  A commitment by both nations to reduce their nuclear arsenals, which constitute more than 90 percent of all the nuclear weapons on the face of the earth.

There goes that awful Donald Trump again, trying to negotiate a better deal for America and Americans.

Other than that, where is Russia a real threat to the national security of the United States of America?  If you’re honest, there really is no answer to that question.  So, why all the hysteria from the Washington establishment and our fake news media?

Here’s an answer everyone should take seriously:  These people fear peace.  They fear a lack of conflict, a lack of division, a lack of…wait for it…fear on the part of the American people.  Because fear is the source of their power, the source of their prosperity, the source of their ability to make their livings.

President Donald Trump does not fear peace, and is not a captive of the Washington establishment.  It’s been 30 long years since America had such a person in that office.

Be glad.

Just another day in Donald Trump is doing his job for America.

America Deserves Better Than Rod Rosenstein and Robert Mueller

The Friday the 13th Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Just getting some things off my chest on a beautiful Friday afternoon in Texas…

Inflation – Has anyone besides me bought balloons at the local Party City outlet that are much larger than this “giant” Trump Baby balloon that CNN’s been talking about all week?  Seriously, I could fit that thing in the back of my SUV, fully inflated.

Priorities – Does it bother anyone else that Rod Rosenstein wants to dedicate about 10 times as many DOJ and FBI personnel to investigating President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee than he was willing to dedicate to investigating last October’s massacre in Las Vegas?

Hacks (in more ways than one) – So, these 12 “Russian intelligence officers” indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his band of circus clowns “hacked the DNC server”? Would that be the same “DNC server” that the DNC refused to allow the FBI to take a look at? That “DNC server”?

Coordination – Mark Warner’s on TV as I type this demaning that President Trump cancel next week’s summit with Vladimir Putin due to Mueller’s action today.  Timing is everything with these un-American creeps.

Backfires – Mueller’s action today is a blatantly obvious repetition of the ham sandwich indictments he tossed out at 13 Russian defendants a few months ago:  Just thrown out there with no evidence presented, focused on defendants that almost certainly will never be brought to trial, and timed to do maximum damage to relations between the U.S. and Russia.  Dumping these things out on the Friday before the summit between Trump and Putin is a despicable disgrace.

Justification – Regardless of the suspect nature of the indictments and the obvious timing issues, I just keep coming back to wondering why do we need a Special Counsel for any of this?  We are now well more than a year into this fake investigation and the public has still been given no legitimate justification for the appointment of this Special Counsel to begin with.  What was the underlying crime that originated such an investigation?  There is no crime of “collusion” in the federal statutes, and to this date, the special counsel has failed to charge a single U.S. citizen related to any ostensible crime in any way related to such “collusion.”

Stonewall – Even worse, Rosenstein himself has personally stonewalled multiple congressional committees exercising legitimate oversight responsibilities, steadfastly refusing to produce the memos he personally authored appointing the special counsel and then later expanding his mandate.  This lack of transparency is simply unacceptable in a free society.

America and Americans deserve better than this.  A pox on all their houses.

That is all.

London’s Fascists and America’s Warmongers Dominated the Sunday News Cycle

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The fascists come out into full view in Jolly Old England. – As London has suffered through its radical Islamic-driven epidemic of knife killings over the last few years, I have occasionally joked here and on Twitter (@GDBlackmon) that the next thing you know, they’ll be banning knives in England.  Over the weekend, any further joking on that subject became moot, as London’s Mayor, Sadiq Khan, took to his own Twitter feed to issue the following edict:

When free societies force their law enforcement officials to behave as if they are incredibly stupid and have no means of identifying the real threat – all in the name of political correctness, of course – the “solution” inevitably ends up being that everyone ends up being treated as a threat.

We see this in our airport “security” measures, in the name of which we regularly witness the spectacle of Homeland Security officials patting down small babies and 90 year-old great grandmothers.

We see this happening in Parkland, Florida, where the school kids are now forced to use see-through backpacks by school and law enforcement officials intent upon continuing their policies of refusing to enforce the law against student criminals.

We see this in our regular gun control debates that invariably take place in the wake of mass shootings, shootings that almost always are committed by unstable individuals with long histories of interactions with law enforcement officials.

Of course, the politically-correct goal in all of these and many other instances in our idiotic society is to force law enforcement to treat every individual as if we are all equal threats, even though those officials have all sorts of means of identifying and acting against real threats if they were just allowed by law to do so.  But because those means might offend someone, everyone must be placed at higher risk.

The reality is that political correctness, and worshiping at the altar of some fool’s notion of “diversity” at any cost leads inevitably to the rise of fascism.  You don’t have to believe me, all you have to do is spend 15 minutes Googling “college campus political correctness” and browsing through the thousands of articles documenting “safe spaces”, the shutting down of any speech that might accidentally offend someone, classes and seminars that blame every evil in the world on white males, and on and on and on.

The notion of fascism has always been portrayed by our left-wing fake news media and entertainment industry as somehow coming out of the political right.  The truth is that fascism is and always has been the inevitable outcome of political leftism.

The fascists have come out into full view in Western Europe, as leftist leaders in England, Germany, France, Sweden and elsewhere implement policies to allow Europe’s native cultures to be overwhelmed and ultimately destroyed by radical Islam.  If you think that can’t come to the United States, well, just wait until the next time we decide to put a Democrat in the White House, and see what happens.  It won’t take long at all.

Four days after President Donald Trump instructed Defense Secretary James Mattis to present him with a plan to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria, dozens of people were killed in a chemical attack on the town of Douma.  As the Administration rushed to blame Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad for the attack – and the Russians for somehow facilitating it – all the usual suspect warmongers like Lindsey Graham, Susan Collins and John McCain rushed to the nearest TV camera or Twitter feed to advocate for not just keeping the U.S. military in Syria, but going to an all-out war footing there.

Senator Graham was so excited at the prospect of sending thousands of additional U.S. military personnel into harm’s way during a series of Sunday morning TV interviews that he could barely contain his glee.  He and McCain and Collins have truly never met a Middle Eastern civil war in which they did not want to involve America’s armed forces.

It was painfully obvious that none of them – nor any of the army of talking-head warmongers in the fake news media – took a moment to reflect on the incredibly convenient timing of this chemical attack, or to assess what possible motive Assad – or especially Putin – would have to commit such an atrocity less than 96 hours after President Trump had expressed his desire to get America’s military personnel safely out of that hellhole.  They never gave any consideration to the possibility that this atrocity might have actually been committed by Syrian rebels desperate to keep the U.S. involved in the theater, given that they have been losing badly in the conflict.

But this is not just about Syria here in the U.S.  All of these people – along with the entire Democrat Party and most of the fake news media – have been aggressively pushing President Trump into a war posture with Russia since even before he took office last year, forcing the President to abandon his goal of improving relations with Putin.  They no doubt leapt with joy Sunday evening as reports of missile strikes on Syria began to come across the news wires, thinking their tireless warmongering had already resulted in action by the Trump Administration.

The U.S. military denies it had anything to do with the air strikes, even though Syrian state television initially claimed otherwise.  Russia and Syria later accused Israel of conducting the attacks, which could be the case, since Israel has carried out air strikes into Sryia whenever they perceived a threat to their own country’s security.  As if this writing, the Israeli military has had no comment, but we will probably find out who conducted the bombing, or if it indeed even took place.

But back to the point of all of this, and that is that every thinking American ought to be taking a moment today to reflect on the fact that all these warmongers – which includes the neo-conservative element in the GOP, virtually the entire Democrat Party, and almost the whole of the nation’s fake news media – have spent the last 15 months doing everything they can to push President Trump into an increasingly aggressive and openly hostile posture towards Russia.

Isn’t it time we as a society started demanding these people tell us why that is?

Just another day in warmongering America.

That is all.

Don’t Expect the Democrat Party’s Farrakhan Chickens to Come Home to Roost in November

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Democrats in Action, Part I – A Democrat who sits on the city council in Washington, DC, took to his Facebook account on Sunday to blame a sudden snowstorm on…wait for it…no, really, you have got to wait for this one…the JEWS!  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

“It’s climate manipulation and D.C. keep talking about ‘we are a resilient city’ and that’s a model based off the Rothschilds controlling the climate to create natural disasters they can pay for to own the cities, man. Be careful,” said council member Trayon White, Sr., who is an actual elected official in our nation’s capital.  The Rothschilds, of course, are a very wealthy European Jewish family.  Mr. White is no doubt a follower of the execrable Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, which means he’s just your basic mainstream Democrat these days.

White later apologized, sort of, saying that “I did not intend to be Anti-Semitic [sic], and I see I should not have said that after learning from my colleagues,” White said. He added that he was working to “understand the history of comment [sic] made against Jews.”

So, he had to be educated by his “colleagues”, i.e., other nitwit Democrats, that it’s ok to hate the Jews in private, but you probably don’t want to go talking about it on your Facebook account.  Gotcha.

Democrats in Action, Part II – Speaking of the execrable Louis Farrakhan, The Soros-funded organization behind The Women’s March is losing top staffers and members due to its recently-revealed ties to the racist hate-monger.  Note that none of these deranged Democrats had any problem at all with the group’s ongoing association with the equally execrable radical Islamist Linda Sarsour.  If I were an African American Democrat voter, I might be wondering why that is the case?

The sad irony here is that, despite the Democrat Party’s open association with Mr. Farrakhan – the DNC’s deputy chairman, Keith Ellison, is a known associate, after all – when Jewish voters go to the polls this coming November, most of them will vote for Democrats, just as most Catholic Americans keep voting for Democrats despite that Party’s open hostility to their religion of choice.  It is truly a mind-boggling facet of American society.

Democrats in Action, Part III – Maine Democrat legislator Michelle Dubois has demanded that state officials change the name of one of the entrances to the state’s capital building because, she says, it is an affront to “women’s dignity.”  The entrance is called the “General Hooker Entrance,” and Ms. Dubois finds that, like, totally offensive.  Of course – and you Republicans know what’s coming here without me having to say it – the entrance is named for famed Civil War General John J. Hooker, who was a native of Maine.  I swear, I swear, I swear I do not make this stuff up.  Who could?

He fixes elections much more efficiently than the DNC and Hillary Clinton. – To no one’s surprise, Vladimir Putin was re-“elected” to yet another term as dictator of Russia, “winning” a whopping 73.9% of the vote.  Somewhere, the Pantsuit Princes is berating Debbie Wasserman Schultz for her under-performance in fixing the Democrat nominating process in 2016.  Fake journalists at CNN were busy constructing a narrative that proves Putin’s victory was the direct result of collusion with Donald Trump.

*Sigh*  No, it didn’t. – Some guy named Ryan Goodman, writing for some fake news site called “JustSecurity”, claims that Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ firing of Andrew McCabe, which was based on McCabe’s lying to the DOJ Inspector General about media leaks related to the Clinton email scandal, somehow violates Sessions’ “recusal” from the Russia Collusion investigation.  This is possibly the dumbest thing you’ll read all week.  I say “possibly” only because Juan Williams still works for Fox, and Chris Cuomo remains on the air at CNN.

All evidence to the contrary aside, there are still sane people living in California. – City Council members in the Calfornia town of Los Alamitos will vote this week approve an ordinance declaring the city to be exempt from the state’s patently unconstitutional “sanctuary state” law.  The ordinance correctly notes that the state law “may be in direct conflict with federal laws and the Constitution,” and that the council “finds that it is impossible to honor our oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States.”  So next time a friend remarks that all the sane people have fled California and moved to Colorado or Austin, you can respond with “Nope, there is still at least one little enclave of clear thinking in Los Alamitos.”

Just another day in Jews controlling the weather America.

That is all.

The Fake News Media Is Poisoning Our Society

Today’s Campaign Update

  • The fake journalists at the Washington Post took a day off from scandal-mongering and published a hilariously absurd puff piece about the poor, poor Podesta brothers, John and Tony, and their fall from grace.  The Post’s fake reporters appear to be on the verge of immolating themselves over the fact that Tony Podesta’s high-powered lobbying firm is apparently closing its doors on November 15, as its principal has become at least nominally entangled in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s “investigation”.  I’ll believe that Podesta is actually in jeopardy in any way whenever charges are actually filed, which of course has yet to happen.
  • As for John Podesta, the Post portrays him as the quiet brother, the brother who would never, never, ever do anything wrong or unethical, despite the fact that the public has been treated to hundreds of his emails that indicate otherwise.  John Podesta, of course, was campaign chairman for the pathetic Hillary Clinton fiasco, and anyone who voluntarily entangles themselves with the Clintons gets the sort of reputational stains they deserve.
  • Speaking of the Mueller investigation, which is supposedly about allegations that the Trump campaign attempted to collude with Russia during the 2016 elections, President Trump chatted with Vladimir Putin for a few minutes at the APEC meetings on Sunday, and all the fake journalists in our fake news media predictably went berserk.  The President was especially slammed for saying that he believes Putin means what he says when he denies having made any effort to influence the U.S. election.
  • Mr. Trump later clarified that statement, saying that, while he believes Mr. Putin sincerely believes what he says, that doesn’t mean that other Russian elements did not spread propaganda during our elections, something they’ve been doing for decades.  Given that no one has presented the public with a shred of evidence personally implicating Putin in any of the Russian influence allegations, that is a very reasonable position for the President to take.
  • The President also very effectively responded to the uproar with a series of tweets, where he now has 280 characters instead of just 140 to make his points:
    • “Met with President Putin of Russia who was at  meetings. Good discussions on Syria. Hope for his help to solve, along with China the dangerous North Korea crisis. Progress being made.”
    • “When will all the haters and fools out there realize that having a good relationship with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing. There always playing politics – bad for our country. I want to solve North Korea, Syria, Ukraine, terrorism, and Russia can greatly help!”
    • “Does the Fake News Media remember when Crooked Hillary Clinton, as Secretary of State, was begging Russia to be our friend with the misspelled reset button? Obama tried also, but he had zero chemistry with Putin.”
  • No rational person would find anything unreasonable in any of that, but our fake national news media has collectively portrayed it as the brayings of a mad jackass.
  • We are in a very, very dangerous place in our country’s relationship with Russia.  We have an entire political party – the Democrats – virtually our entire news media establishment, and rancid Republican war-mongers like John McCain and Lindsey Graham, all of whom appear to have a goal of pushing the United States into a shooting war with Russia.  They have all been trying to push us down that road for several years now, and appear to be literally insane with rage that our current POTUS thinks it would be a better idea to form a constructive relationship with such a powerful adversary.
  • Given that President Trump is correct when he says that Russia’s interests are aligned with American interests when it comes to terrorism, Syria, North Korea and other matters, there is absolutely no reason why our country should be constantly assuming the hostile posture towards Russia that the Democrats/media/RINO war-mongers promote.
  • Our national news media is poisoning our society.  They are endangering our future, and the futures of our children and our grandchildren with their constant collusion with the war-mongers and other swamp creatures in our government.  We are going to soon reach a crisis point at which the threat they represent must somehow be dealt with effectively, or we will end up in a conflict that need not happen.

Just another day in poisonous fake news media America.

The Russia Uranium Story Is A Chance For Our Useless Attorney General To Finally Step Up To The Plate

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Our thus-far useless Attorney General Jeff Sessions will likely finally be put on the spot today, as he testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee.  Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley is expected to question Sessions about his knowledge of a Russian bribery scheme that took place during the early Obama years, and involved kickbacks to government officials and massive Russian money going to the Clinton Crime Family fake Foundation, along with millions of dollars in “speaker’s fees” to former President Bill Clinton.
  • The payoff for the Russians was, of course, the awarding of a federal permit to buy Uranium One, a company that controls about 20% of U.S. uranium assets, by a Russian firm in which Vladimir Putin owns an interest.  The approval of that permit was made by what the Obama Administration called the Committee On Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), on which both Attorney General Eric Holder and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were members.  Imagine that.
  • We’ve all known the basics of this scam for years, but assumed that James Comey’s FBI and Holder’s Justice Department simply looked the other way and allowed then-Sec. Clinton to coordinate all this money laundering with impunity.  But it turns out that the FBI actually did investigate this matter during 2009-10, and found criminal wrongdoing before Holder and likely then-President Obama put a halt to it.
  • All of that and more is contained in a story broken on Tuesday by reporters John Solomon and Alison Spann for The Hill.  Grassley apparently became aware of this situation last week, and sent letters to all relevant federal agencies who had members on CFIUS, demanding they produce documentation that would indicate whether their representative on the committee had knowledge of this FBI investigation when they voted to approve the sale of Uranium One to Russia.
  • Grassley, who is famously plain-spoke when he is angry, had this to say about the matter on Tuesday:  “It has recently come to the Committee’s attention that employees of Rosatom were involved in a criminal enterprise involving a conspiracy to commit extortion and money laundering during the time of the CFIUS transaction.  The fact that Rosatom subsidiaries in the United States were under criminal investigation as a result of a U.S. intelligence operation apparently around the time CFIUS approved the Uranium One/Rosatom transaction raises questions about whether that information factored into CFIUS’ decision to approve the transaction.”
  • It is into this breach that our thus-far useless Attorney General steps today.  Mr. Sessions has to this point very conveniently recused himself from anything having to do with Russia – because he had a meeting with the Russian Ambassador during the presidential campaign – as a means of facilitating his reluctance to deal with all of the rampant lawlessness that took place during the Obama Administration.  It is this baseless recusal that led to the appointment of Special Counsel Bob Mueller, and to the continued stonewalling of several congressional investigations and court cases by the FBI.  While many conservatives who support President Trump – myself included – were excited about the Sessions appointment when it was made, he has turned out to be one of the most disappointing hires made by this President.
  • While the fake news media – other than The Hill – are doing their best to ignore this story, given that it involves wrongdoing by so many of their Democrat heroes, today is actually a very pivotal moment for the Trump Administration.  If Mr. Sessions continues his posing as having a reason to recuse himself from Russia matters, even as they have absolutely nothing to do with the Trump presidential campaign, then that should be cause for the President to fire him and replace him with someone who really is interested in doing this job.
  • What this story shows us clearly is that the entire “Russia Collusion” fantasy play foisted on the public by the Democrats, the fake news media and willing Republican sympathizers in congress since last November is nothing but another classic case of Clintonian projection strategy.  The Clintons – and the Obama Administration – were involved in collusion with the Russian government throughout Hillary Clinton’s time as Secretary of State, and, when Trump won the election, knew that all of this would likely come to light.
  • The Clintonian strategy in situations like this has always been to get ahead of such revelations by accusing their opponents of the very same kind of wrongdoing first, in order to divert public attention away from their own actions.  The real collusion here has been between the Clintons, the Obamas, the fake news media and swamp-dwelling Republicans who have facilitated their projection strategy, even to the point of creating a special counsel to investigate the fantasy.
  • Today is Jeff Sessions’ chance to prove his is up to the job he’s held since February.  I’m looking for a reason to think he will prove worthy of the task, but am having a really hard time finding one.  We’ll just have to wait and see.

Just another day in Russia Collusion America.

That is all.
